ANSWER: It should heal if you complete the treatment and it should not scar as long as you don't disturb the wound (pick or peel the scab).


I was glad to see this part of your reply, because I was wondering about leaving the new scab undisturbed. I was afraid it was keeping the iodine from getting to the problem.

Reading the whole thread again is a bit daunting, so I'm assuming the above means, "Leave the scab alone!"

Hi Lane,

Yes sir, it's important not to disturb the scab. The scab tissue appears to be porous (more fibrous) so it absorbs the iodine quite well. In fact, a good way to monitor your healing progress is to watch how dark the scab turns when the iodine is applied. The darker the scab, the deeper and fresher is the wound below. As the wound heals, the scab becomes lighter upon treatment. That's one sign that you're making good progress. In the last days of treatment, the wound area has a normally light coloration like the surrounding healthy skin.

I don't recall you said it, but the beauty of iodine is that the wound heals from the "bottom-up" and not the "top-down". This allows the lower levels of tissue to heal first and the top layer heals last. If you remove the scab, the lower tissue may be healed OK, but the visible skin could be left with a scar or surface imperfection.

Sincerely,
Chuck

Hi Chuck,
Are you suggesting that applying the Iodine in one layer 3 - 5 times a day is probably enough, as I thought Simoncini was talking about 10 - 20 layers 1 -2 times a day?
If you mean multiple layers, how many and do you apply the multiple layers straight away while it is still wet?

Hi Fred,

I think Dr. Simoncini uses a brush and each layer is a "wipe" over the area. When you've wiped the area 20 times (one after the other while it's wet, that represents one treatment. That's how I understood it, but his explanation isn't perfectly clear about that.

I took away from his explanation that you want to heavily cover the area. Therefore, I simply used the tip of the glass applicator and carefully, but liberally "painted" the bcc and its surrounding area. As I ran the tip of the applicator directly onto the skin, it soaked into the area. I didn't have a specific amount in mind, just wanted to fully soak the area. I saturated it until I reached "run off" and it started to drip off the skin.

When I soaked the area as described, I allowed it to dry into the skin. I started a new application about once every 4 - 6 hours. Over a period of days, you can tell the iodine penetration was getting deeper. That was partly due to constantly saturating it each time and partly due to the skin reacting and "opening up" (cracking / peeling).

As you apply the iodine, the core of the bcc is very dark just after each treatment. On my light skin, it would turn dark reddish-brown while the surrounding area was a lighter red. As the bcc healed, the dark core began to disappear. That enabled me to visually track the progress even though the top surface of skin was still raw. Eventually, the dark core no longer appeared following treatment (even when saturated). That marked the final stage of healing and the top surface quickly improved.

But I made the mistake initially of thinking I could stop treatments after the top surface was free of blemishes. In fact, Dr. Simoncini alludes that this is OK to do. But my bcc attempted to re-form within a few weeks so I began a second round of treatments and this time kept treating the area for 2 - 3 weeks AFTER the top surface was perfectly clear of blemish. That's been several months ago and I've not seen any signs of a reoccurrence in that area. However, I've had 2 other areas (not on my face) that I needed to treat and those were recently cleared. So I've personally had this work 3 times on me.

Anyway, sorry to be long-winded but I wanted to make sure you had as much information as I could offer. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Chuck

Chuck, we all owe you a big debt of thanks for the thorough way you have shared your experiences with us.

My own current experience is moving along. The scab is considerably larger than the original "bump" and that may reflect the total amount of skin actually involved.

I'm following your procedure of dabbing on the juice until it starts to run, and I'm applying it 4-5 times/day.

The bcc (or whatever it is) is where it shows and where it would contact my shirt. So I wear a loose "band-aid" over it to protect my shirt and to keep from grossing out others.

Hi Fred,

Thank you and Lane for those kind words. It's truly my pleasure to be of assistance. I recall the fear when my dermatologist nonchalantly announced my "spots" were skin cancers. I had several removed by laser and knife and most returned within 1 - 2 years. Due to success treating my bcc's with iodine, I appreciate this forum and enjoy giving back. Hearing from you and Lane makes it even more motivating.

Sincerely,
Chuck

Another success story for you.
As you know I've been treating my Nodular Basal Cell Carcinoma myself at home (see my previous post) and am thrilled and elated to announce it has all gone! Yay!
I delayed posting this just in case any regrowth started but it's been all ok now for about 3 weeks.
There is a very small blanched spot in the middle which has left a small "dent" in the skin - but hey, it's better than the lump that was there before. The skin all around which I treated with the 7% iodine is all normal and pink.
I assume the blanched bit is due to what I was initially treating the lump with before I found this site.
I will massage pawpaw ointment in daily to see if I get further results.
I am very happy!

I've been using Lugol's on my undiagnosed bump (see gross photo above) for two months now. I still have a big scab, which is a bit disappointing in that I thought I would see more clearing by now.

Hi Rosebud,

Awesome news - I'm thrilled for you! The one thing I might suggest is be cautious about using moisturizing creams in that area. At least for awhile. I'm not sure if all creams are a problem, but when I used a cream on my cleared area (this was after the first round of healing), there was a small re-occurence which I had to re-treat. If skinb cancers are caused by fungus (Candida), the moisturizers may provide a fertile environment. I would wait perhaps a month or so before applying those if it were me. Just a thought.

Again, congratulations - you made my day!

Sincerely,
Chuck

I found this forum a couple of months ago and started using the baking soda on my bcc on my nose (about the size of a pencil eraser). I went through the OMG what have I done phase when it came to the surface and looked awful and then I switched over to the Lugol's iodine after it seemed to be settling down. I never got a scab and I didn't have pain from either the soda or the iodine to any degree, but I could see 'normal' skin beginning to fill the small opening. Then I got pneumonia. The doc said I needed to be hospitalized, but I refused. I did agree to treatment (prednisone for 12 days, a Z-pack AND 875mg of Augmentin). As you can guess, I experienced MAJOR yeast infection and the bcc swelled up big time. Now I'm starting all over. I'm going to go with the soda for a few days and then start back on iodine. I've seen the 'traditional' (Mohs) pictures, so this HAS to work! Wish me luck!

I said I would come back and give an update on my desmoplastic melanoma that I treated with the iodine. Here's a recap:
I had a bc removed which formed a "keloid scar" (as my dermotologist called it). A year later, it was bugging me so I returned to dermo. He said it had grown so he wanted to do a shave biopsy, which he did and it was desmoplastic melanoma. I'm not sure he even suspected melanoma nor did I.
I decided to try the iodine even though it was melanoma. I believe all cancers have a fungal link. I used 2% tincture boiled down, 5% lugols, then switched to the 7% tincture. Applied several times a day over the course of 3 months. The lesion grew and became swollen, and raised and painful. It began to look like a "tumor" and only parts of it would scab over the rest just oozed and bled all the time. I decided to go ahead with the WLE just last week. I figured 3 months was long enough to experiment and I should probably just get it gone!
Anyway, just wanted to say that I propbably shouldn't have tried this with melanoma and I dont recommend it. Who knows, maybe with continued use it would have killed it but after 3 months, I was afraid to continue. Also, if you have an undiagnosed lesion, I would strongly recommend having it looked at, especially if you have a history of bc or other cancers. I would never have thought mine was melanoma. It was smooth, pink and raised like a keloid scar. It did not have the typical A,B,C,Ds of melanoma.
If I ever have another BC, I will definitely use the iodine but it just didn't seem to be working fast enough for my melanoma.

Iodine (Lugol's, 7%) has appeared to work somewhat for me with a cancer I have had on my forehead. It's difficult to know if it's gone permanently, it still ocasionally feels tingly or itchy but only slightly. I used the Lugol's for several months. After a while it healed over leaving a dint in the skin.

It hurt a bit and was a bit ugly at the destruction stages but hey, what would the doctors have done but put a huge hole in my face and almost certainly cut a nerve and disfigured me I was warned. I'm only just forty and I'm an actor and performing musician. It matters a lot.

I'm not entirely sure whether there is some cancer left growing beneath the skin, or some bad cells left in the dint where it was, though it's not looking bad at the moment.

I've acquired some Curaderm BEC5 and another restorative cream, but I'm careful about using them as they seem not designed to be applied on normal skin to reach anything underneath. If anyone knows anything to the contrary, please correct me.

Does anyone know where I can buy the Cesium Carbonate recommended by some, to dissolve in water and apply to hopefully knock out any remaining bad cells?

Hi Overthere,

Thank you for the post and am so glad to hear you've taken th etime to research this. I wanted to quickly respond to your question regarding the quantity of Lugol's you should purchase. I've successfully treated four Bcc's and my wife has treated on of her own. I still have 1/3 of my original bottle. So for roughly $17.50 (67% of $25), we're treated 5 Bcc's.

So I feel pretty confident a single 1oz bottle will be more than enough if you're treating less than 6 - 7 spots.

I also want to mention one other thing, I can only attest to my personal results involving Bcc's. So to anyone besides Overthere who might read this, it's very important to have a professional diagnose the type of skin cancer. Personally, I would not attempt this treatment for Sarcoma or Melanoma.

I wish you the very best results!

Sincerely,
Chuck

overthere, I used cureaderm for sc and bc. The spots spread across my face, nocking out aks rapidly. I am still dealing with some deep bc's, mainly in the places where I had moes 20 years ago. I am now washing with bobs bakeing soda, then put on iodine, let that dry, add curaderm, then I put on a peace of tape. I do the cureaderm twice a day. Curaderm works really fast on ak's. I had my whole face checked out by a derm. twice. Its been 5 years with no return. Once they get to be full blown bc's or ak's, thats when they take longer. I tried ps but I find it leaves a kind of blistery looking thing, that dosn't go away, so I am retreating those spots with the above method. I really like the iodine but bc's have those roots that spread out, and I worry that the iodine won't follow them all the way because of the hard scab.

I posted a photo of my "neck bump" before starting treatment in this thread 5/19/11. It's been about 3 months now of 4-5 Lugol's treatments daily.

In the photo below there is a large iodine-stained area of skin, a smaller hard scab area, and a central depression in the scab. I'm not sure what caused the depression.

I occasionally pick at the edges of the scab, due to lack of self-control, I guess. Originally, the whole iodine-stained area was scabbed over, but the scab size has diminished with time. The current scab is about the same size as the original bump.

Hi Lane,

Thank you fo the update. It appears that although it's taking quite awhile that you're making slow, but sure progress. I recall you're working and needed to keep the area covered. I wantaed to ask if you felt the covering had unhindered air circulation? The less air (and thus less dry) the spot, the longer it takes to heal. So I was curious if the covering was loose and allowed air to freely flow undersneath it?

As for the size, the "core" you're seeing is Ground Zero for the entire cancer which has a much larger perimeter. So when you're down to the just the core remaining, the final healing should appear to be quicker (at least from my personal experience).

I know this isn't easy and I commend you for hanging in there. When that core is 100% gone, please treat it for another couple of weeks so you never have it re-occur. My wife and I still marvel at the area on my cheek that was huge and has been blemish-free for about a year now.

Sincerly,
Chuck

Hi Overthere,

In reply to your questions, I just used a small pair of scissors to carefully clip my beard hair that grew near or in the affected area. I wasn't too worried about getting it close, just enough to keep in control. As for showering, I never directly touched the area, but allowed the water to briefly rinse it. But don't use soap with moisturizer - a very important detail. Also, let it air dry totally before you treat with iodine. The area should stay as dry as possible so the iodine soaks deep into the skin. Moisture and heat is a perfect growing condition for fungus so you want to keep the area dry with plenty of air circulation.

Hope that helps. I'll be out of pocket the next several days due to a family emergency, but will respond when I return in case of further questions.

Sincerely,
Chuck

I never want to question someone else's miracle, but here's some information you may find useful.

The formula for hydrogen peroxide is H2O2. The 2's should be subscripts, but that's not possible here. Each molecule of hydrogen peroxide is composed of two atoms of hydrogen (H) and two atoms of oxygen (O).

The bubbling that is observed when H2O2 is applied is caused by the presence in all living cells of catalase. This enzyme breaks the molecule down to hydrogen (H2) and oxygen O2) gases.

quote:
1. The curative power of H2o2 is (in part) due to the way it delivers EXTRA OXYGEN to the site. So if these "cancers" really are FUNGAL in nature, that extra oxygen should help kill them!

You're right about the delivery of oxygen, but I'm not sure how that would harm the fungus. I don't think any fungi are obligate anaerobes (fancy term for critters that can't live with oxygen). I might be wrong, though.

Unfortunately, the "work" has dried up, but fortunately, I don't have to keep the area covered as much. I use a regular "band-aid," so I think air circulation is pretty good at all times.

I was glad to read your recommendation about having the spot dry, and this may relate a bit to my slow progress. It's been my practice to soap the spot during my nightly showers and then to apply the iodine almost immediately afterward. I will immediately change that behavior!

I'd say it's about the same size, although it's hard to tell with the scab there.

I like your suggestion of increasing the frequency of treatment. I think I'll up it to about every 2 hours or so and see if that helps.

Another excellent possibility that I am preparing for is Petty Spurge sap as explored in this Topicalinfo.org thread:

The thead is almost 500 posts long spanning three years, so reading it provides a real education.

Thank you for that link! It certainly looks like an approach to consider. Too bad you can't just buy the sap somewhere, but I guess the "drug company police" would prevent its being marketed. One would need to find some other non-medicinal use for it, and sell it only for that purpose.

That's a LOT better than three months of 10 iodine applications per day (how many shirts have you ruined?)

Ha, ha! Actually, I've been very careful and only stained a couple of T-shirts.

I'll read... or at least skim... the milkweed thread and see if I think growing them is feasible. I'm not sure about growing seasons and such. I'm not in a situation where indoor growing is likely to be possible.

Another suggestion for you:
Apparently almost all cancer patients turn out to be Iodine Deficient. Do some research and consider taking two drops of Lugol's orally per day (in a glass of water or other liquid).

Actually, I used to take iodine that way; don't know why I stopped. I think I'll start again.

Hello Johnny Mac,
I believe from my google research that Dr. Tullio Simoncini works out of THE SHEN CLINIC
Have a look at their website & you may be able to send an email or give a call.

Good luck with it all!!
May that brain tumor go take a hike!

Also, worth googling Dr Bryzinski as well if your interested (he's in the usa)
(With apologies to all for the digression.....)

Thank you so much for your help Rosebud and Overthere! I will check the Shen clinic out and see what i can find. Will also look at the Dr Bryzinski.
I have already been on the websites you suggested Overthere ,but can not seem to get a response? I have read Dr Simonici's book but it still only gives directions to the various websites. Will keep you posted! By the way......what an amazing thing this forum is, and how wonder full are the people that contribute to it . once again....thank you. x

My current spot is also vertical, and the scab seems to be the main absorber of iodine. I don't remember a problem at the beginning; maybe your skin is too "greasy" from the earlier treatment. I seem to recall the scab formed pretty quickly, so maybe that eliminates the drain-off.

I waste a certain amount of solution with each treatment, because I dab it on with the dropper until a drop forms at the bottom of the area. Then I use a folded tissue to blot the drop.

You want to buy Lugol's from JM Crow & Company. Just Google that company name and look for the 5% iodine. Lugol's is a maximum 5% strength - the 7.5% is probably iodine tincture which means it contains alcohol. That makes it very painful so you'll want real Lugol's which is water-based.

Good luck!

I suspect that's a =tincture= (alcohol solution), whereas Lugol's is a solution of iodine and potassium iodide in water. the former stings a lot more.

Yes! I've noticed I get more burning if the scab is wet, such as from a recent shower. I know the recommendation is for the scab to be dry, but I suspect a moist scab absorbs better than a dry one.

I may be wrong, but in light of my slow progress, I have started applying a warm, wet rag before every other application. I'm applying every two hours now when possible.

I don't think there's any danger there. The I/KI is not volatile; only the water will evaporate, leaving the iodine behind.

OTOH, while it's in solution, it can soak into the scab more readily, I would think.

Yes, I was just commenting about the evaporation. I don't know anything about overdosing.

But yes, I find it actually painful after I've applied the warm, wet rag for a while and then applied the iodine.

I googled that hydrogen peroxide will soften and dissolve scabs. YMMV, but I'm tempted to try it.

I was told by a doc that scabs tend to promote scarring, so it's best to cover a wound with vaseline to prevent scab formation.

In our situation, I don't think we're after removing the scab so much as making it more porous to the iodine.

Isn't skin cancer a SYMPTOM only of what is going on in the whole body? and if it is how can you get rid of the cancer that is all over the body? A mole is only how the cancer is manifested. Please clarify

I don't know if you've read this thread, but it's based on a physician's hypothesis that skin cancers are the result of fungal infections.

I will add, since I've posted a number of times, that I have given up on the iodine treatment for my lesion. After several months it became obviously ineffective. I've ordered some Petty Spurge seeds for my next attempt at self-treatment. http://www.topicalinfo.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=273 is the thread dealing with that technique.

Dr. Tullio Simoncini treats Skin Cancer using a special formula available in any Pharmacy in Italy plus most Compound Pharmacies can make up 1 ounce or 8 ounce solutions. I cannot use Alcohol at 45 or 85 percent because it cracks my skin so we only use distilled water with the formula.

Dr. Simoncini gave this formula to me today:

The formula is
7 grams iodine
5 grams potassium iodide
5 mls distilled water
alchool to reach 25 mls
All the best
Tullio Simoncini

Obviously the formula is for a 1 ounce or 30 mls bottle. Not sure how to measure the amounts necessary to have an 8 ounce bottle made up but do recommend ALL shake any bottle with the solutions before application. We bought 2 percent solutions from CVS and Walgreens plus even Supermarkets to get the applicator and threw out the 2 percent with high alcohol solutions to use the bottles. We found perfect 2 ounce plastic bottles with applicators for $3.69 at a local Supermarket and bought two. Remember in America only a DEA Licensed Pharmacist can make up the solution 7 percent with 5 percent Potassium Iodide --- Something normally ordered from a Compound Pharmacy by Prescription from a doctor often required.

Remember also that being a FUNGUS one must take special care washing family clothing to use granular bleach to kill FUNGI plus be sure to find something like 'MOLD ARMOR' to spray on your showers or tubs. I have asked Dr. Simoncini to provide the formula for destroying all Cancer inside the body by spraying like lung or rectal tumors or injection by Catheter or Syringe for internal organ tumors. Dr. Simoncini cures BREAST CANCER in 4 days using Sodium Bicarbonate or perhaps best known as ARM AND HAMMER BAKING SODA type solutions of perhaps 5 percent with distilled water.

DO PASS ALONG THE CANCER CURE INFORMATION FOR SKIN AND INTERNAL !

I have asked the Nobel Prize Committee to award Dr. Tullio Simoncini the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his discovery and cure techniques PLUS we sent him to a web site www.apfn.org/apfn/du.htm to see how one can translate his web site into 48 or 50 Languages.

Thank you for allowing me to join the group. My skin Cancer treatment is worth the effort and with help applying drops to hard to reach areas 20-30 times a day TWICE A DAY the scabs are coming off and areas CURED !

Forgot ONE ITEM --- Skin with HAIR should be shaved either with an electric razor or razor if you do not cut the skin before commencing the treatment with solution. Usual dose requires dabbing with applicator 20-30 times TWICE A DAY for 5 days and taking usual showers or baths until the scab forms and falls OFF. Do not PULL on the scabs because they are usually attached to good skin in areas and it will pull off layers of good skin causing pain and bleeding. After the first scab comes off then keep up the teatment ONCE A DAY still applying 20-30 drops until the second scab falls off then the skin should only stain with the solution and it is declared CURED.

Sorry we forgot that small item about hair causing the scab to stay put longer.

Thanks for the Simoncini skin cancer treatment recipe Ralph! Do you know what type of alcohol is recommended?

Personally, I would steer clear of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and go with Everclear or vodka.

Dr Simoncini's internal cancer treatment methods using sodium bicarbonate are very controversial and I am skeptical that they work.

But I do think skin cancers are often promoted by an underlying candida yeast (fungus) infection and an iodine based therapy may be quite helpful. Please let us know how your treatment works for you.

I first read this forum a couple of months ago.
I have a lesion on the side of my nose and after years of denial I looked at google pictures of BCC and decided, yes, this is what is on my nose.

I figured I would be at the doctors soon but wanted to try some natural cures first.

I tired the baking soda and castor oil for ten days. It hurt a lot and also bled and then I went to Lugol's iodine.

Used the Iodine for three weeks and it did not seem to do much. I then tried it again and put it on twelve times a day for three days.

The iodine forms a thick film on the lesion and today I scraped and picked until it was off and wanted to see what the lesion was doing.

It is better. I am so shocked. I put some ointment on it as it is sore and the skin peeled but will continue with iodine treatment tomorrow. The lesion looks more healed and smaller.

I am in total shock this is working and so very greatful for this forum.

Thanks to all who have shared.

Chuck you are the one who posted and gave enough info that convinced me to try this.

Thank you so much.

I will post again after using the iodine for a bit longer.

Dr Tullio Simoncini can be reached sending an e-mail to

t.simoncini@alice.it

Assistant Dr. Mario Bellini can be reached by sending an e-mail to

maria.bellini7@gmail.com

Remember the 7 % formula dabbed on any nodule or location 20-30 times morning then 20-30 times afternoon can be done anywhere. I used HUMCO STRONG 7 % IODINE and if you can get a doctor to write a prescription for the SIMONCINI FORMULA perhaps you need, if elderly, to cut off the ALCOHOL AMOUNT and substitute Distilled Water like I did.

ROME PHONE NUMBER FOR DR. SIMONCINI REMAINS:

Tullio Simoncini

0039.335.294480

Remember to call NORMAL EVENING HOURS IN ROME FROM PERHAPS 6 PM UNTIL 9 PM out of courtesy. Persons with a Medical Doctor might have the doctor contact Dr. Simoncini and share any files or findings with him direct for advice. Skin Cancer Protocols are available by sending an e-mail to backflow.prevention@verizon.net Have them all in PDF.

I wanted to share some more information about my skin lesion on my nose and also information about myself.
I am 64 years old, healthy and am retired. I have fair skin and was in the sun a lot growing up and sun burned often. Like so many I wanted to have a nice tan like my friends but my skin would not tan like their skin and I burned often and turned red more then a nice tan color. I suspect I am the perfect canidate for skin cancer.

The lesion on my nose looked like the google images of a nodular bcc.
It was white and a waxy pearl color with veins showing. About the size of a dime. It first showed up ten to twelve years ago and I did visit the doctor. I was afraid and the Dr. was aware so he told be not to be so afraid because skin cancer was nothing like real cancer.
He made an appointment for me to see a dermatologist and said I would need to have a biopsy. I am someone who does not enjoy going to the doctor and was so disappointed he made another appt. with another doctor and I did not go to the appt. I convinced myself it was a skin cyst.
The lesion on my nose would not go away. I opened it with a needle three different times over the years. It bled profusely and took forever to heal. The result would be it looked the same no matter what I did to it.
Recently it had taken on the shape of having rolled edges and sunken in the middle.

Today after using the Lugols iodine 5% the rolled edges are gone and most of the skin is looking normal.
I posted in the above post how long I have been treating this lesion and how surprised and amazed I am this Iodine is working to heal my lesion.

I also am using the iodine on some other spots on my skin that I feel could be a problem.

I also started taking a drop of the Iodine orally, today was my first day for taking it orally.

I am going to take it twice a week for a while and see how I feel.

I have done a lot of reading on skin cancer and also iodine and I am convinced this has been successful for me and I just had to share with those that read this forum.

I also wanted to add when applying the iodine my lesion did swell some and turn red but it never had any kind of a discharge. It has hurt a lot during the procedure but after seeing the wonderful results the pain and time has been worth using the iodine.

Hi Happy,

I'm sure I join many others on this post and say how thrilled I am about your success with iodine! I understand what a joyful emotion it brings to know you won't be disfigured from surgery.

As I encourage in other posts, please continue your treatments for at least 2 weeks after the lesion is completely healed. It should save you from having a re-occurence.

Sincerely,
Chuck

P.S.: Love your moniker "Happy" - that says it all :-)

Chuck, HELLO

Happy is not even close to how good I feel about my success with using the Lugol's iodine. And you Chuck, are the reason I tried it. I do not have words to express how grateful I am to you for sharing your experience.

I read your posts over and over again before I decided I wanted to give it a try. I read other forums and researched skin cancer.
I have read much good information about Lugol's iodine and I would urge others to read as much as you can. Very informative information on the Internet.

Again Chuck, thank you so very much.

Yes, I am going to keep applying the iodine for the next few weeks.

My edits are because I am not using spell check. I can't seem to catch my mistakes until after I post and then read my reply again. lol

Hello, friends! Please excuse me for bad English! I hope you will understand me.
I am from Bulgaria and I write you a translator.
I want to thank you for this forum, which greatly helped my mother get well!
A year ago, doctors diagnosed with malignant melanoma of my mother. She had a large dark spot on the face. This stain was injured in the middle. They formed a wound that was great. Then there is formed something like a volcano with a wound on the top.
Doctors from two laboratories have studied biopsy. Proved to be malignant melanoma diagnosis.
Doctors wanted to cut out half the face of my mother.
I found information about the treatment of Dr. Simoncini.
We started treating my mother with Lugol. That lasted about three months.
During this time we read the your advice. They gave us strength us to continue with treatment.
Now my mother was healed and her skin is clear.
We thank you! We wish success to all who are receiving. Do not give up. There cancer treatment.
We thank Dr. Simoncini! God bless you!

Hi Miya,

I wanted to say "thank you" for posting the details about your Mother's success in treating her cancer. What fantastic news and a source of encouragement for those reading it!

Although I successfully treated my own basal cell cancer, it sounds like your Mother's condition was far worse than mine. I cannot imagine how frightening that must have been but is now a source of joy!

Please let your mother know that we rejoice for her and you and share the excitement. God is great and He definitely led you to this website. We all owe Dan, the blog founder and Dr. Simoncini much!!

God Bless You,
Chuck

Hi, Chuck!
Thanks for your good words!
I forgot to write something more important.
My mother used another therapy, parallel treatment with iodine. This is the treatment of Nikolai Shevchenko. Here is a link to his method: http://cancer-bg.blogspot.com/. This is described by a Bulgarian father. This is Father John Vasilevski. You can use online translator.
Besides, my mother used sometimes hydrogen peroxide. With hydrogen peroxide it flush the wound.
I hope that this will be useful to people who are being treated.
God help you, friends!

I read about dr. Simonccini method, I sent an email to ask if iodine is good for melanoma, I read all of your discussions, and I decided to use iodine on my wife neck melanoma. Guess what ? Two weeks and couple days after , the think went down . I continued to apply iodine two weeks more, and now everything is like before. Just a little scar. If anyone need, I can provide pictures with melanoma, before and after.

Hi Adi!

I am glad that your wife is also cured of melanoma! People should know that this disease is treated. They have to fight the disease and will win!
I informed the woman with BCC about the methods of Dr. Simoncini. Doctors, like when my mother insisted it operates. But she began treatment with iodine and heal.

Dan, thanks for this site!

God help us all!
