I posted awhile back about how flax seed oil has helped my Husband.Two or three months ago he had this place on his hand (he thinks it was cancer)and the flax wasn't helping by taking it orally so he started putting it on the place and covering it with a band aid.It was really getting big and very noticable.Last night he showed me the spot.It is GONE!It looks like where a doctor might have burned it off.
He has had several cancers burned or froze off in the past so he knows what they look like.We don't have health insurance so we couldn't afford for him to go to the doctor.
What I want to know is why don't doctors tell people about the use of flax seed oil? :confused:
If you want to do a search on it put in REMOVEDI hope this helps someone like it did my Husband. :angel:

What does basal cell skin cancer look like. I have a pearly white raised spot on my chest that gets scaly sometimes. It has been there about 2 years. Do you think that is what this is. Do you think the flaxseed oil would help? I am getting worried.

They're numerous images of what basal looks like. White spots that are raised doesn't sound like one. I would REALLY consider going to a dermatologist for evaluation. Ask the derm about natural rememdies. Some often give herbal rememdies for skin disorders. However, if it IS cancer of the skin; rest assured it will be surgically removed if you are under his/her care.

Flax Seed oil is amazingly rich in Omega 3.
It is great for the digestive system, for the skin and great also for joints (for people with arthritis, lupus, etc. it helps with the inflammation).

If I were you, I would continue taking it, because of its great benefits, but I do agree with Ga Lday.
Skin cancer IS cancer and if untreated it can cause some serious problems.
There could be a lot more going on under the skin than you are aware of.

I know how difficult (and expensive) it could be when we don't have insurance, but it is worth investing the money in your health... even if it is just for the consultation so that the doctor can take a look at it.

Another good idea is to invest time on prevention.
What I mean is that since you don't have insurance, the last thing you want is to get sick. So do some research in the internet about other natural products such a flax seed oil.
Another factor that has been mentioned recently about skin cancer is 'weak immune system'
So make sure you consume enough vitamin C, vitamin E and make sure you have a healthy diet.
There have also been studies on mice in regards to 'green and black tea' and how it (so far) seems to help in skin cancer prevention. They say that the caffeine in the tea helps inhibiting cancer growth.

Of course, make sure that your husband, yourself, and especially your kids (if you have any) must be protected from the sun.
Your kids have now skin cancer in their family history, so you have to take that seriously.

So make sure you are careful with what you put in your body as well and on your skin.
Prevention can save you a lot of pain and a lot of $$.
But, make sure those spots on your husband are checked by a specialist. Nothing else matters if your health is in jeopardy.

Good luck!

A few years ago, a doctor did a study on the best flax seed vitamins.
Most Flax Seed vitamin companies claim they get 1000 MG per vitamin.
The doctor found out, that most of these vitamins were only getting half what they claimed.
The doctor said the Spectrum Organic Flax seed was the only vitamin to actually be 1000 MG.
Thats the Flax Seed Vitamin i buy.

Flax seed oil must be kept cold. From production to shipment to the store it must stay refrigerated. I only use Barleans. flaxseed oil must stay cold.

I'm glad the flaxseed oil is working! We've had good luck with it too!

The cold pressed flax seed oil is the most effective.I don't really know that much about the vitamens.I'm not trying to say that flax seed oil will help everyone I just know what it did for my Husband.

Omega 3 fatty acids are also supposed to help raise HDL, the good cholesterol. I take fish oil.

Ok, gotta a question. I am REALLY getting interested in this flaxseed and cottage cheese thing. Had a man with a history of melanoma tell me today that he is taking the pills and eating cottage cheese everyday. So tell me what is the right amount. I am ready for this now. I was a bit skeptical at first, but, being a melanoma survivor myself, I will try anything to "block" this beast. Thanks in advance.

Not sure about that combination, but I can vouch for the merits of flax seed oil. I started it to bring my cholesterol down, and it did. But I also found it my skin a lot smoother, especially on my upper arms. It's also very good for any constipation issues if you have them. That was also a surprise. :)

I wouldn't be without it.

Flax seed oil can be used as a salad dressing (in anything you would put olive oil in).
They recommend having a spoon or two of the oil a day. But, you MUST take a glass of water with each spoon (to dilute it in your system).
It must be refrigerated from production to shipment and also in your house. All the brands I have seen include a fabrication date (usually less than a week from the time you see it at the store).
It is best if it comes in a dark bottle to avoid oxidation.

You can mix it with cottage cheese, with apple sauce, with mashed potatoes, yogurt...
I personally have mixed a spoon full of the oil with 2-3 spoons of apple sauce or the same amount of mashed potatoes or yogurt, and it does not change the original flavor of the meal. It is not as effective if you cook with the oil (I guess heat does something its properties).
The bottles usually go for $10-$15.

Slightly more effective is the flax seeds, but you need to grind them since the shell is too hard and they will not breakdown through digestion (the oil is inside). You can start seeing/feeling the results within a week or 2 of using it.
It is GREAT for the skin, for the joints (recommended for patients with lupus and RA), for people with chronic digestion problems (due to cancer or other illnesses)... amazing for the cholesterol…. all and all it is just a great supplement for your meals.
I am not too big on taking pills and more pills so it is great that I can take in a more natural way.

I am glad Marksta brought it up, since it is something that is great for the body (for skin problems included) and it is easy to add to your regular diet.
I have read in few studies that it is even better than taking fish oil.
Does not hurt to try it.

Very interesting stuff.

I have known that flax oil intake can eliminate sun damage on the skin. But I hadn't heard of using it topically for such a cure.

I'll try it.

So, wherever you buy flaxseed oil, it would be refrigerated? Places like Wal Mart, CVS, etc......... probably wouldnt carry it because of the refrigeration, or would they have it on the shelves. If they did, would it still be good? Thanks

Nope, I meant just taking it in the capsules, not on the skin. It works from the inside :)

I didn't buy mine refrigerated, but did so after opening the bottle.

The flaxseed oil and cottage cheese diet is called the budwig diet. Do a internet search for "the budwig diet" you'll be surprised how much you find on it. You can also find her book at Barnes and Nobles, or similiar book stores. The budwig diet REALLY helped my Dad when he was first diagnosed with prostate cancer. I feel deep down in my heart that he added months to his life by using it. Unfortunatley, it was a battle every day because cottage cheese REPULSED him since he was a young boy, so he just couldn't do it anymore.

Flaxseed oil must stay cold from production to your house. We take a lunch bag with an ice pack in it when we buy it at our health food store. Most of the type you buy off the shelf at Walmart and such have been in a hot truck for days being shipped. It will lose it's effectiveness and can also turn rancid.
