In February 2013 an area on my face that had been crusting over and then turning light brown in colour did something a bit nasty. The area initially began to tingle and itch and within a week it had doubled in size getting quite angry and red. Picture below. I had a sense it wasn't normal and took myself off to see my GP.
Unfortunately my usual doctor was on holiday but the Doctor standing in was a skin specialist, so I figured I was in good hands! After a very quick consultation with the doctor he agreed something was indeed going on but assured me that he thought it was nothing serious but recommended I saw a dermatologist. My intuition was saying "Don't wait, don't leave it, go get another opinion." especially given how quickly it seemed to be growing. I promptly went home rang a few colleagues and booked myself an appointment with a Naturopathic doctor.
Fortunately I discovered an amazing local Naturopath who'd trained as a medical doctor. After a very thorough examination and consultation she agreed my skin was behaving abnormally and recommended a complete diet change. My new diet being 60 to 80% organic vegetable based and mostly raw, no processed foods, no refined sugar a whole host of natural suppliments, probiotics and the application of Salvestrols several times a day.
I found this brief description of what Salvestrols are and how they may effect cancer cells which I thought might help.
