Topical Chemotherapy and Chaga Mushroom Skin Cancer Case Study

Annanda Chaga Case Studyactinic keratosis_beforeSolar Keratosis closeup (Before) Chaga Mushroom Treatment

Middle aged male from Ontario Canada diagnosed with solar keratosis (SK) or actinic keratosis due to over exposure to the sun over his lifetime.  'SK’ is of medical concern because they can “statistically” develop into squamous cell and basal cell carcinoma as well as melanoma.  Affected areas include right and left forearms and chest. 

Two full weeks of treatment using prescribed chemotherapy topical cream offered little results, patient began to use Chaga Mushroom to treat half of the afflicted areas.  After three days the areas treated with Chaga Mushroom began to heal.  The prescribed chemotherapy cream was then abandoned due to lack of results.

  • Left arm shows the affects of two weeks treatment of chemo cream after which patient stopped the treatment.

"The pain was like a third degree burn.  The skin blistered and oozed serum from below."

  • Sleep disruption to extreme pain – in order to get any rest patient began taking multiple Tylenol's with codeine and antihistamines.
  • Patient’s pharmacist was shocked and said this was a major allergic reaction and chemo cream treatment should be stopped.

"Apparently this is a normal response to the use of this type of chemotherapy cream if the patient doesn’t go into anaphylactic shock and require hospitalization or develop an infection requiring antibiotics."

  • Patients family doctor said this was a normal reaction and that the only alternative would be ongoing surgery (cut it out) or chemotherapy.

Chest & Sternum Area Day(s) 1-5

"Multiple SK’s itchy as H#&@ . Living with it."

Chaga Mushroom Treatment & Patient Observations:
Right Arm Day(s) 1-3

  • Patient begins treatment of 3 glasses of well extracted Chaga mushroom Tea per day.
  • Homogenized in a blender the remainder of extracted Chaga mushroom Chunks and distilled water, patient makes a Chaga mushroom paste to be applied to right arm (equally diseased with SK) and covered it with a clean white sock, soaked the sock with extracted Chaga mushroom Tea and encased the arm in a plastic bag taped closed for about twelve hours. 

“My family doctor specialized in dermatology. In my opinion she is a bounty hunter for skin defects. We have an ongoing bet; my right arm (chaga treated) vs left arm (chemo cream). She lives by one book (medicine) and does not accept natural science.”

  • The Application and treatment of chaga mushroom was repeated a total of three times.
  • After three days the right arm is baby smooth, still a bit itchy, but no erupting SK’s. 

Right & Left Forearms & Chest Day(s) 4-5
