Herbs For Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer

What herbs and/or supplements are effective for non-melanoma skin cancer? I’ve heard wormwood is effective in killing cancer cells topically, without damaging healthy skin. Also, Limogene and CLA and cymilium, the latter, I’m not familiar with.

This question has been answered in part before. Please see: http://www.richters.com/show.cgi?page=./QandA/Medicinal/19990228-9.html

I would like to add that traditionally this classification of herbal medicines are commonly referred to as a herbal escharotics. These herbs act on the skin by creating a caustic or corrosive effect thus resulting in the removal of the cells it comes in contact with - healthy or otherwise. Care must be taken to not leave them in place on healthy tissue. Blood root has a long history of use in formulations used for this effect.

Before using this form of herbal medicines, I strongly urge you to research the following links: http://www.planetherbs.com/therapies/thoughts-on-the-use-of-escharotic-pastes-for-the-treatment-of-cancer.html http://www.cancersalves.com/introduction/treatment.html
