She was a nurse. So why did Helen shun conventional cancer treatment?

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Helen Lawson was a respected emergency department nurse and a top cyclist. She died last month from ovarian cancer.

But could her death have been avoided?

Helen, 50, had shunned mainstream cancer treatments.

Her grieving family says the “bright and successful” woman had fallen under the influence of a self-described healer and hypnotherapist who told her not to undergo surgery.

Instead he allegedly prescribed an aggressive and painful treatment called black salve, which ate away at her flesh, leaving her swollen and in pain.

Dennis Wayne Jensen claimed he had cured his own brain tumour twice and had cured hundreds of others of cancer, Helen’s family says.

EDITORS NOTE> Black Salve is only to be used on small surface cancers, a little at a time. This fellow claims it is ok for Internal cancers as well..He is dangerous. I have used it with success the proper way.

Her partner of 21 years, Belinda Davies, said she would drive Helen out to his North Warrandyte home on the bushy outskirts of Melbourne and watch in disbelief as he put his hands on her body, already “mutilated” from his mal-treatment, and say he was driving out the illness.

“He put his hands on her stomach and would breathe out like he was trying to blow away the cancer, telling us that the cancer was gone, and there was only a tiny little bit still there,” Belinda said.

“And here she was so swollen and distended and just unbelievably ill.”

The case has been described as tragic by Victoria’s Health Complaints Commissioner, Karen Cusack, who has issued Jensen with a 12-week interim prohibition order banning him from providing any health service while the matter is being investigated.

The commissioner said it was alleged that Helen “had been dissuaded from following conventional medical cancer treatment and she subsequently died”.

“I don’t issue these orders lightly, but I am satisfied that this was necessary in this case to avoid a serious risk to the health, safety or welfare of the public at large,” she said.

According to her loved ones, Helen discovered a lump in her pelvic region in January last year but initially brushed it off. A scan in October revealed a 17-centimetre growth on her ovary, more tahn likely advanced overian cancer.

She was booked in for surgery to remove the tumour but pulled out at the last minute, following a visit to Jensen the day before she was due to go into hospital.

Helen, who was a keen cyclist, working on her bike.

“She came home and said she wasn’t having the surgery now,” Belinda said.

“She said ‘Denn [Jensen] said the surgery is not going to work, and I’m just a number to them, and the black salve will draw out the cancer and the black salve will do what the surgeons can’t.

“I had a huge fight with her. I was just saying, ‘This is insane, give yourself a chance. For God’s sake, just give yourself a chance.’ ”

Belinda believes that Helen, an emergency department nurse at the Austin Hospital, received a recommendation for Jensen from a paramedic she worked alongside.

Shortly after being diagnosed with cancer, she returned to her home with what looked like black tar all over her stomach, which eventually ate away at her flesh.

EDITORS NOTE >Very dangerous for such a large area.1cm2 at a time maximum

“It rots the skin away. It looks like third-degree burns,” Belinda said.

“It was just horrific & disgusting.”

It is understood the substance was black salve (also known as red salve or cansema), a widely discredited alternative cancer treatment containing the plant bloodroot & zinc chloride with other herbs in some formulations, which can destroy large parts of the skin and underlying tissue, leaving behind a thick black scar.

EDITORS NOTE > The black scar so formed destroys & consumes the infected tissue then the plug can be popped out leaving a clean wound hole behind which heals back up to form a normal skin surface. Prior to this it is painful for a few days & when popped, it is like expressing a boil, then total relief & infection dissapears. There is no ‘BLACK SCAR’

The article refers to destroying large parts of the skin. That is rubbish unless you spread it all over the place like an idiot would do.This is a great formulation & works if used correctly under proper medical supervision. Overdosing on most medications is harmful anyway, so know the rules.It worked for me.

More in this case is certainly not the best. My earlier stories in this site is here >

CANSEMA INDIAN BLACK SALVE TREATMENT FOR CANCERS HOW TO USE & A BREAST CANCER SUCCESS STORY

This is what happened to a man in Queensland who applied black salve to his head

Editors note > This lesion shown in the image above indicates this person applied the black salve on too large an area for far too long a period. Should be over a few days not months.The area covered appears to be 20 times the area you should cover at a single time as well. Who was guiding this victim?? What was he trying to treat?

“Things like black salve just kill everything, normal skin cells, abnormal skin cells, it doesn’t matter,” said Dr Douglas Grose, president of the Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia.

“You can’t control it. All you’re doing is killing the full thickness of the skin and allowing it to scar up. It’s a ridiculous technique.”

EDITORS NOTE> Unless medically supervised you cannot control people indiscrimitely using it. You can control how much & when it is used under medical supervision, one would think. Use it but with care & be mindful that it is best in small doses at a time, a little at a time for external cancers only

It is illegal to sell black salve in Australia, and the Therapeutic Goods Administration says it is not aware of any credible scientific evidence showing it to be effective in treating cancer. Nevertheless, the cream has continued to be promoted in online testimonials, and instructions to make it are easily found on the internet.

In 2014, a man in Brisbane was left with a hole in his head after applying black salve to the side of his face for four months. Other disturbing cases have also been reported globally.

Self-proclaimed healer Dennis Wayne Jensen.

Jensen, however, insists black salve “works” and is not an approved mainstream treatment because pharmaceutical companies can’t make any money out of it.

“They don’t want black salve on the market because it cures cancer,” he said in an interview with Fairfax Media on Monday.

He said that when Helen came to him late last year he first offered her alterative products, including another controversial treatment, vitamin B-17.

Jensen said Helen had been told “she wouldn’t live until the next Christmas”.

“She told me, ‘I want you to pull out everything you’ve got,’ ” Jensen said.

The self-proclaimed healer said he recently cured a man of a terminal cancer in his neck and had also healed a woman’s ovaries.

“I actually put my hand on her tummy, over the ovaries, and I was able to heal the ovaries so she could have a baby,” he said.

He said he did not charge for his services, or ask for money – a claim disputed by Belinda, who said he made it clear he expected a donation once Helen recovered.

Jensen attended the interview with two advocates, who brought with them a stack of documents they claimed showed that the interim prohibition order had no legal standing.

It’s still baffling to Helen’s family that a woman who spent her life so focused on her health and working as a medical professional would so thoroughly reject doctors’ advice.

Her sister-in-law, Deb Davies, complained to the Health Complaints Commissioner after Helen’s death, handing over a DVD of graphic photos to investigators.

Fairfax Media was provided with an image of the wound on Helen Lawson’s stomach after she tried to treat her ovarian cancer with black salve, but has chosen only to run a blurred version because it is so confronting.

“You have never seen anything like what happened to Helen. It is so confronting,” she said.

“Literally above her pubic bone, all across her abdomen almost up to her rib cage, she was raw, mutilated bubbling flesh.”

Belinda said that within a few weeks of Helen applying the black salve the wound was so large that surgeons could not have operated even if they had wanted to.

After screaming matches in which Belinda begged Helen to go hospital, she said she gave in and focussed on trying to be there for her partner.

The pair met in hospital just over 20 years ago when Belinda was Helen’s patient. Much of their life together was spent cycling, with Belinda supporting Helen through an elite mature-age criterium career that saw her top the nation in her age category.

As Helen became progressively sicker, Belinda said, Jensen continued to insist she had been cured.

“He promised her that she would get well and the cancer had died,” she said.

It was only in the final weeks of her life that Helen’s contact with him began to diminish, but only because Jensen was ignoring many of Helen’s increasingly desperate calls, Belinda said.

Helen was rushed to hospital on April 6 after collapsing at home, and died that night. Belinda sent Jensen a message saying that “we lost her, she was riddled with cancer”, but hasn’t spoken to him since.

She believes Helen could have survived at least another few years if it wasn’t for his intervention.

“I’m really struggling. I’m having a really hard time,” Belinda said. “She was the love of my life.”

Belinda and Helen on holiday in Spain.

The continuing investigation into Jensen uses new powers given to the Health Complaints Commissioner. For now, if Jensen fails to comply with the interim order, which prevents him from saying he can cure cancer as well as banning him from providing any health service as the matter is investigated, he faces a large fine or up to two years in prison. He could eventually face a permanent ban.

Australian scientist gives last public thoughts before Swiss euthanasia ends his life

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Zurich: A 104-year-old Australian scientist who travelled to Switzerland to end his life has said he is not without regrets but is “happy” to have the chance to end his life.

Ecologist Proffesor David Goodall, who is not terminally ill, told a news conference in Switzerland that he was ready for the end. He said he chose Switzerland as that country’s liberal assisted suicide laws let him commit suicide legally, in contrast to Australia where it remains outlawed.

Professor Goodall, a member of the Order of Australia, responded to reporters’ questions in the Swiss city of Basel while accompanied by members of euthanasia groups including Philip Nitschke, founder of Exit International.

He understood that his death, planned for Thursday, would be by lethal injection, though he did not know what time it would take place nor many details about the procedure. Some family members would be present, he said.

“One should be free to choose the death, when death is at an appropriate time,” said Professor Goodall, who wore a jumper cardigan bearing the words “Aging Disgracefully”.

“My abilities have been in decline over the past year or two, my eyesight over the past six years. I no longer want to continue this life. I’m happy to have the chance tomorrow to end it.”

Assisted suicide has been legal in Switzerland since the 1940s, if performed by someone with no direct interest in the death. The Netherlands legalised euthanasia in 2002 for patients considered to be suffering unbearable pain with no available cure.

A Swiss doctor had to determine if Professor Goodall was of sound mind before he could undergo assisted suicide.

In lots of countries, though, physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia is illegal.

Australia has forbidden such practices, although Victoria, last November, became the first state to pass a euthanasia bill to allow terminally ill patients to end their lives. It takes effect in June of 2019.

Professor Goodall was born in London in 1914 and moved to Australia in 1948. An expert in arid shrublands, he was a lecturer at the University of Melbourne, worked in Britain and held academic posts at USA universities.

While visibly straining to hear questions, Professor Goodall answered them clearly and in detail after they were repeated using a microphone.

He said he felt a “sense of pressure”, given media attention on his end-of-life journey to Switzerland.

“I don’t feel that anyone else’s choice is involved,” he said. “It’s my own choice to end my life tomorrow.”

Professor Goodall said he had not given much thought to a last meal, as he said his culinary choices had grown quite limited.

He had not contemplated music to accompany his passing, but thought Beethoven’s 9th Symphony may be good, he said, before singing a few notes.

Professor Goodall said he was not without regrets: “There are many things I would like to do, but it’s too late. I’m content to leave them undone.”
