Skin cancer is often developed on the part of the skin which is often exposed to the sun. However, this condition which is associated with abnormal growth of skin cells may also occur in areas that are not ordinarily exposed to sunlight.
There are three known major types of cancer – basal cell carcinoma (the most common), squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Some other forms of skin cancers are lymphomas, Merkel cell cancers, and cancers of other tissue in the skin.
In addition to limiting or avoiding exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, there are also a handful of natural remedies that can help us in preventing and curing skin cancer. So, here we go.
Castor Oil Mixed With Baking Soda
This natural remedy is made by mixing cold-pressed and 100 percent solvent-free castor oil and baking soda. We should create a creamy mixture and applied it several times on damaged skin to keep it protected especially if we are going outside.
Castor oil has been used for thousands of years due to its numerous health benefits. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is known to improve the immune system and help cure several disorders like cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Meanwhile, baking soda is a handy powder with many benefits ranging from cosmetics to baking to treatment of various diseases.
The combination of these two ingredients has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of skin cancer like basal cell carcinoma or melanoma. It can help in the regeneration of skin cells in the affected area.
Moreover, the mixture has been proven to be safe and effective unlike with sunscreens present in the market that only contain parabens and phthalates that penetrate our skin and only increase our risk of diseases like cancer and diabetes.
Aloe Vera Gel
According to studies, aloe vera can help repair human DNA, protect us from bacteria and viruses, boost and protect our immune system from the harmful effects of chemotherapy agents, and protect our skin from ill-effects of radiation treatment. The gel inside its leaves possesses essential nutrients and medicinal properties that can heal a human body inside and out.
Simply cut the leaf at the edge and at the tip and then extract the gel and directly apply on the skin. We can also add the gel in our teas, smoothies, and mix with honey.
Aloe vera has also been found to be beneficial in lowering blood pressure, improving digestive health, promoting oral health, and acne clearing.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the seeds of the cannabis plant. It is widely incorporated in many skincare products and cosmeceuticals. Aside from being trendy, it also offers numerous benefits for our skin.
The oil is recommended for healing damaged skin and epithelial (soft) tissue. It is high in antioxidant constituents: essential fatty acids (EFAs) like gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and vitamins A, C, and E. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve skin inflammation. What’s more? Hemp seed oil can serve as a perfect natural sunscreen.
Dr. Johana Budwig, an avid researcher of EFAs, documented success in treating cancer using MASSIVE DOSES of EFAs. Consumption of foods rich in EFAs was linked to a lowered risk of arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and skin cancer.
Organic Curcumin From Turmeric Root
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. It helps our body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing damage as well as in fighting cancer at the molecular level.
For us to enjoy these benefits, we need to include turmeric in our diet. Since curcumin is hard to be absorbed into the bloodstream, we need to consume turmeric along with black pepper to improve our body’s ability to absorb it.
Surgery rarely works when it comes to beating skin cancer. What we need to prevent and fight this disease is the natural, effective and safe remedies that are being offered by our mother nature.
