    My DH works with people with cancer. The number of times people have said something completely idiotic based off this sort of stuff on the internet infuriates me. I can't imagine how frustrated it must make him.
    I saw a similar one with a treatment for melanoma - I can't rember what it was called exactly but it was some sort of salve or balm that apparently dug it out and made it fall off. No studies cited, or an actual medical opinion noted anywhere.

    You do have to wonder, some things people come up with or believe these things.
    I now a lady who had a brain tumour and she was in remission for a few years, then another tumour was discovered and she chose natural alternatives rather than medical advice, chemo, radiotherapy and now she's terminal.

    Whilst I do know juices aren't going to cure cancer I also know that a healthy diet free from additives and preservatives helps you IN CONJUNCTION with the drugs.

    Black Cohosh. I have a friend who used this on her face for a skin cancer and she is left with quite a large scar on her face, I was not friends with her when she used it but apparently a lump worked it's way out from the skin.

    Yep I get diabetes and autism tags. It ****es me off big time

    I mean cinnamon and honey can cure everything right. Oh and autism is cased by bad parenting. And than there is the a hug from someone that truly loves you will melt away depression.

    I really wish people who shared this garbage could see the damage they are doing.

    That is called Black Salve and I believe it's actually illegal to sell but there are plenty of people offering it under the table.

    As a Breast Cancer Survivor (diagnosed 2014) I have had friends offer the black salve, the juicing cures, the essential oil cures, and offered their opinions on medicine. To tell the truth - it p1sses me off!

    It's cr4p having people who have not faced the diagnosis of cancer (and truly had to face their mortality and whether they'll be around for their children) to tell you what to do with your body. My SIL actually told me not to worry about reconstruction after my mastectomy and I should just stick footy socks in my bra. How f'n insensitive - you've still got your t1ts b1tch - don't tell me what to do. (Bit of an off topic rant - sorry).

    I'm a member of a Breast Cancer fb group and there are ladies on there that are shunning chemo and the follow up drugs we take for 10 years to try to stop the cancer returning and spreading. They are playing with their lives, I just don't understand it. It's idiots like Wolfe and Belle Gibson that are spreading so much harm to very vulnerable people.

    This is like that **** the Gerson protocol that the Wellness Warrior Jess Ainscough followed and promoted as a curing her cancer before she died of cancer. Terribly sad that these charlatans prey on the most vulnerable during desperate times ☹️

    I would never question someone's faith in something like juicing as *complimentary* medicine, but I have very strong opinions on *alternative* medicine. If curing cancer was as easy as juicing, none of us would get it.
