Answers to Questions

Please note:

The posts that used to be on this and the next page have been transferred to a bulletin board. New questions should be posted there.

My commitment is to make this site serve the needs of interested patients. There is a separate site for practitioners. There are literally hundreds of pages on this site, all available free of charge to the public. While many of the questions typically asked are answered on the site, those who are considering the use of botanical treatments should also read my book.


Since I do not treat people nor attempt to crisis manage those who embark upon this treatment without adequate preparation and foresight, please do not ask questions that should have been asked BEFORE starting with an escharotic treatment.

In the case history, there are some reports of successful use of escharotic products. Check case history #1. This patient was highly self-motivated and blessed by the support of two very well-informed persons. This can make an enormous difference in outcome. What happened to Janis need not happen to anyone else.

There is another page with some speculations about scarring.

There is section on this site reserved for patients who wish to discuss their cancer experiences and paths of healing with other patients. There is also a new more public discussion board, and there is a site for health care practitioners.

The book that answers nearly all your questions: the formulas, instructions, pros and cons, pain control, and more!
