Sources for Obtaining Escharotic Pastes

Sacred Medicine Sanctuary does not produce or sell escharotic pastes or salves. The reason is that we believe so strongly in the need for professional supervision that we want all patients to obtain their primary cancer treatment products from experienced practitioners.


Whether attempting cancer treatment on your own or working with a practitioner, we suggest that everyone contemplating the use of escharotics study the book on Cancer Salves thoroughly before commencing this treatment.



For those who need or want supervision, the place with the most experience is the "Hoxsey Clinic" in Mexico. You can also contact Dr. Robert Borchert via his web site: He used to work at the Bio-Medical Center and is now in private practice in Tijuana. See also the page dealing with the issues of supervision.



We suggest you do an Internet search. Experienced herbalists and pharmacists will be able to work from the formulae in the book; others are advised to obtain their supplies from a reputable producer. The pros and cons, instructions for use, and suggestions for managing pain are also in the book. Do not start this treatment without preparation!

If you wish to be listed as a source for a salve or paste, please send a sample of your product(s) to:

Sacred Medicine Sanctuary
P.O. Box 442
Poulsbo, Washington 98370

Do not include literature, case histories, or testimonial statements with your sample. At our discretion, we may request copies of your literature and post excerpts on the web site. There is no charge for this service, but we insist on quality products and reliable information. Poor feedback from users will result in immediate deletion from this page.



Bloodroot Pastes

An entire section of this site is devoted to information on black salves and other escharotic and enucleating pastes that are often useful in removing malignancies. It is strongly suggested that anyone considering this treatment be well-prepared before starting with one of these products. Detailed instructions are in the book. Background information as well as material on bloodroot can be found on this site.


Please note:

We only provide adjunctive products: the internal tonics that practitioners in past times have insisted are more important than the salves themselves; the products that are usually required at some point during an escharotic treatment, such as various poultices and ointments; and herbal tinctures for a wide variety of conditions ranging from immune enhancement to parasite cleansing to oral chelation for mercury, aluminum, and other toxic metals. These products are intended to be used in conjunction with a primary treatment program and are only available through practitioners.

We recommend visiting our sister site to explore the magnitude of the cancer process and the tools at your disposal for addressing stress and other factors that could be contributing to your health problems.
