Breast Cancer Healed with Black Salve and Natural Therapies (Veronique Desaulniers)

Dr Veronique Desaulniers heals from breast cancer with black salve, diet changes, supplements, and detoxing therapies

Dr Veronique Desaulniers has maintained various wellness practices since 1979, but has since retired. She is certified in many Post Graduate protocols and has undertaken extensive studies in the fields of “Energy Medicine,” specializing in Bio-Energetics, Meridian Stress Analysis, Digital Thermography, EFT and Chiropractic Care.  Additionally, Dr V’s father died of pancreatic cancer, and then her uncle passed away of liver/kidney cancer. The feelings of hopelessness and despair that she experienced during these times moved her to become a practitioner of natural medicine.  Years later, when her mother was diagnosed  with breast cancer, and was treated with a lumpectomy followed by radiation that left her breast severely blistered and hardened, Dr V was able to talk her mother into following a gentle, non-toxic protocol to continue for her healing.  The following is Dr V’s own experience with breast cancer.

It was in 2004 when Dr V discovered a lump in her breast while taking a shower.  She says, “I will never forget that moment when I felt “the lump” in my left breast. I immediately felt a burning pit in my stomach and felt faint. I innately knew at that time that it was not a simple fibrocystic lump.”  She later had bio-energetic testing that revealed that it was cancer.

Dr V says that she felt like the “lone ranger,” trying to figure out why she had developed cancer. She says.  “I had lived a clean life, ate organic before organic was even in style, had been under Chiropractic care since I was 16 years old, and I loved to run and exercise.  I had home births and I had nursed all 3 of my children for 18 months each. ”  She says that she searched for answers for the next 2 years and tried to connect the dots.

In her search to understand, Dr V discovered that she was severely iodine deficient, suffered from a tooth cavitation abscess, and that she had been sexually abused as a young child which had taken a toll on her emotional well-being.  It should be noted that all three of these can be linked to the development of breast cancer.

Since Dr V was a practitioner of natural medicine, she had witnesses firsthand the amazing changes that can occur in patients who were diligent about getting to the root causes of their “dis-ease” and then taking the appropriate steps to correct them.

Dr V says, “Since I understood that cancer cannot grow in a healthy, happy and alkaline body, I set out by applying the following principles:”

The alternative therapies that she used

1.)  Internally, I addressed these issues:

  • Alkalized my body with a whole food diet
  • Began juicing fresh vegetables
  • Detoxed with specific herbs and colonics
  • Kept my electrical energy balanced with acupuncture and chiropractic care
  • I took enzyme therapy
  • Did some pretty serious emotional healing  which included tools like Emotional Freedom Technique
  • With the help of a qualified Biological Dentist, I addressed the toxicity in my teeth by having the metal fillings replaced with bio-compatible materials.
  • I took herbal tinctures and homeopathics that were designed to weaken the cancer cells and build up my Immune System.
  • Took iodine therapy

2.)  Externally, I applied a paste called “Black Salve” to the lump in my breast. The salve contains the herb blood root, which causes apoptosis or death to cancer cells only. Miraculously, this salve does not harm healthy tissue but only attacks the cancer cells. This procedure creates an “eschar” or scab, which is eventually expelled along with the tumor.

Dr V applied a pea-sized amount every 24 hours as instructed, and within 12 hours she felt a burning, stinging sensation. When she removed the bandage, she could see that a yellow spot was developing.  She reports that the spot grew bigger and there was inflammation, swelling, and intense pain of the breast area. The wound kept spreading and in 3 weeks it was the size of a large golf ball. At that point the “tumor” began to separate around the edges and within 4 weeks the dead tissue separated and fell out of her breast. She was shocked by this, but says that she was left with a big hole, and unfortunately, she could still see some black unhealthy tissue had remained within the breast. She later discovered that the salve she used was of inferior quality and because of this, it had not been able to remove all of the unhealthy tissue.

She spent the next four weeks in excruciating pain and then decided to let the wound close up and heal while she continued to monitor her health through the use of Thermography and other diagnostic testing.  Meanwhile, she kept working on healing her body internally and hoped that these therapies would be able to turn her health around.

Two years later, in 2006, it became obvious that the tumor was once again growing so Dr V decided it was time to reapply the salve.  Since her first experience with the salve had been less than desirable, Dr V had taken her time to research further and had found a reputable company with success in treating thousands of cancer patients with their salve, but she likens the burning and seething pain that she experienced as to being similar to throwing salt and vinegar onto an open wound… and that was with pain medication.  Four weeks later, her body released the unhealthy tissue and she found clean healthy tissue underneath the open wound.

De V finally felt that she was on the road to recovery and had an amazing story of hope to share with other women, but does add that she feels black salve should only be used as a last resort. This is because  cancer is more than just a tumor, so curing it would involve more than simply removing a tumor, but she does accept that sometimes healing can be faster if the tumor is removed by means of surgery or with the use of a bloodroot paste.
