Gentlemen, I had a colony of warts on the bottom of the heel of my right foot for 8-10 years. It may have started from stepping on a thorn or sliver of glass, but it never really went away from the time it first developed, until my application of your Bloodroot paste. It effected my walking comfort and sometimes had me hobbling. Countless times, my dermatologist had cut, and frozen the initial wart, only to have it return. As the years progressed and my economic circumstances changed, I resorted to actually trimming the tissue myself, every couple of months, to reduce the discomfort. This caused the wart to spread and multiply, even moving with some new growths up the outside of the foot and a couple near my ankle. In 1998 I decided to make a concerted effort to eradicate them once again and began treatments with the same Dermatologist as before. We started by freezing the areas several times, only to have them return. The smaller ones on the ankle seemed to leave permanently, but the colony under the heel persisted.
The treatments were costing hundreds of dollars and finally the doctor suggested the option of a Bliomyecin (sp?) injection. This substance is apparently a chemotherapy agent and creates a necrosis of the wart and some surrounding tissue, in an effort to eradicate the growths. The shot alone was $200.00, very painful, took almost 2 months to heal... and didn't work! The doctor decided to refer me to a specialist at UCLA, who was working with a material called DNCB. I underwent a process of systemically sensitizing the body so that the application of the ointment would create a reaction from within, that rejects the wart tissue. Again, painful, expensive, and ineffective.
The systemic approach may have caused other skin sensitivities, but that is for another letter! I finally stumbled onto your product, after searching for information on warts and other skin problems, on the internet. I applied the paste for only a few weeks, and the warts were gone. A pink area of fresh skin was the only reminder of what had been a painful area for over 10 years. I have been absolutely amazed at this success, and now after almost a year since the last Bloodroot application, I am writing to report this true success. I even related this to my doctors, who had little to say other than admitting no familiarity with the material I used... they weren't even interested in looking at the affected area.
My wife has witnessed this cure and referred your product to several friends. I literally spent thousands of dollars with conventional (and experimental)approaches, suffered through dozens of ineffective surgeries, only to find success with your product.
I am now considering your Black Salve ointment to try on a couple of skin cancer areas (that have also been conventially treated by the same Dermatologist)... [A couple of additional queries follow...] I look forward to your response and would be happy to answer any questions about the wart treatments that I experienced prior to trying Bloodroot paste. Thanks for your products,

Skin tags are harmless soft, skin-colored, rubbery growths that typically hang from the skin by a little stalk. They’re usually found on the neck, armpits, groin, eyelids or other body folds. The medical name for them is “acrochordons” and the worst thing about them is the way they look. If they catch on jewelry or clothing, they can be irritating, too, but they aren’t a sign of skin cancer and apart from the fact that some people find them unattractive, they’re nothing to worry about.
The reason your insurance company won’t cover the cost of having your skin tags removed is that the procedure is considered cosmetic. A dermatologist can snip them off in seconds with a scalpel or scissors, burn them off with an electric spark or freeze them off with liquid nitrogen. All of these procedures entail relatively little bleeding. However, if you’re susceptible to skin tags (they tend to run in families), you may get rid of one crop only to develop another.
One alternative to these procedures that I can suggest is using bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), a small woodland herb that grows in the north central United States and Canada. The red juice from the root is poisonous when taken internally, but used externally has a unique ability to dissolve abnormal growth without disturbing normal tissue. You can buy bloodroot in powdered form or as a paste, apply it to the growth you want to remove and then cover with a bandage. Be sure to follow package directions carefully and use bloodroot with caution.

A woman contacted me about a growth on her eye lid seen below. It was suggested to her to use the Total Care Body Wash, applied to the growth with a Q-tip every night before bed, then rinsed off in the shower the next morning.
Hopefully someone will find these helpful. The Body Wash is brilliant. The lump was a viral wart (the lower portion anyway) and the part closest to the edge of the eyelid was a mybomian cyst (or chalazion) - great combination eh?!. They are both gone now - in 3 weeks. No pain, no scar - although I did accidently get it in my eye which stung but also cleared up other tiny chalazions inside the eyelid!!
The doctor wanted me to use a steriod cream for the chalazion and suggested that I just ignore the wart. Thank goodness I had a better alternative.
|Before Using Total Care Body Wash
After Two Weeks of using Total Care Body Wash
After using Total Care Body Wash for just THREE weeks!
I started using it about 6 months ago and actually had a spot that looked like a plantar wart come to the surface of my skin on my chest, just under my right clavicle. It was about the size and shape of an eraser head of a pencil. This was about 3-4 months ago. After a week it dried up and disappeared. I was amazed. There is no mark left at all.
I will tell you a little more about the body wash, just recently, I had a flat mole actually come to the surface that was never there before. It was on my back left lat, and it was a dark pink color. I started really concentrating the wash on that spot for the last week and now it is totally drying up. I really think this is the most amazing formulation ever produced.
I have often found that if you are working on a specific mole or wart, that it is helpful to "rough it up" so to speak. You don't have to cut into it, but take a brand new, clean emery board and very lightly pull it across the spot, just enough so that it would cause tiny little spots of the skin in the area to be scraped, almost microscopic though, you don't need to make it bleed. .
Remember, if you don't have any big ones, I would start by using the body wash for a few months to see what develops. If a spot develops that does not disappear with in 30-90 days you will want to apply black salve to it. Bloodroot will work for non-cancerous moles, warts, and skin tags, but black salve (which has less bloodroot in it) will get them all and I find there is a little less scarring with the black salve then the bloodroot.
I am telling people about the body wash for finding spots, which originally I was telling them to then put some salve on, but now I am finding it is less invasive to continue with the body wash for several months. This is why I find the body wash long term to be better if you are concerned about scarring. But, if you find after using the body wash daily for a couple of months, a spot that comes to the surface which is large or does not go away, you may want to apply black salve to it, as it is most likely a stronger cancer that does not want to be pulled through the entire body but would rather be easier to exit through the surface of the skin.
The body wash can be put on as a thin layer and left for up to 15 minutes before rinsing off, but I have usually used it for 5 minutes before rinsing off in the shower. Some eczema and psoriasis patients have reported leaving it on all day and getting good results when they also get all dairy and white flour/sugar out of their diets. It can be left on long term with no adverse effects. The source for the body wash that myself and friends and family use can be found at Best On Earth Products
