Black and yellow salves are sometimes called botanical surgery. The salves work best on skin cancers and many have had success with breast cancer. The salve is a thick salve, or paste, made of native American herbs, that is placed on a small spot on the skin, close to a diagnosed or suspected malignancy. The salve will cause the skin to react, but if there is no malignancy, nothing will happen. However, if there is a malignant tumor present within the tissue under the selected spot, the salve forces the body to eject the tumor by bringing it to the surface, until it completely emerges and detaches itself from the skin. The process usually begins by a puss-like fluid oozing through the lesion, then within about 2-3 weeks the main tumor will emerge.
These salves often include herbal extracts of Chaparral (Larrea tridentata), Zinc Chloride, Cayenne (Capsicum frutescens), Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Red Clover (Trifolium pratence), Birch Bark (Betula alba), Burdock Root (Arctium lappa), and Irish Moss (Chondrus crispus), and sometimes DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide).
The salves are often used in conjunction with internal preparations. Hoxsey Clinic uses both internal and external formulas.
