Curcumin is a compound that is used to make curry and gives the spice its yellow color. There have been new studies that prove that this curry ingredient is a wonderful alternative treatment for melanoma because it interferes with cell growth and disallows the melanoma to continue to grow. In fact, some scientific studies have shown that when curcumin is present, the melanoma cells begin a process called apoptosis, which is a self-destruction process. Curcumin has similar effects on cancer cells of the lungs and breasts.

Sweating as Natural Cure for Melanoma
Sweating is a great natural cure for melanoma and other forms of cancer. Cancer cells as well as bacteria and viruses die when the body temperature is in range of a fever. Also, it has been shown in some scientific studies that there are some modern industrial pesticides (this is why you should buy organic food!) and toxins that can only be released from your body via the sweat glands. To promote sweating, try drinking tea in a hot room, eating lots of cayenne pepper, exercising with lots of clothes on, or sitting in a sauna or steam room. Try breaking a sweat as a great natural cure for melanoma.

A great home remedy for melanoma is iscador – commonly known as mistletoe extract. This semi-parasitic plant has been used since ancient times to treat lots of different illnesses. Some scientific studies have shown that the extract of mistletoe can kill cancer cells and help to promote the functionality of the immune system. It is important to note that if you choose to use mistletoe as a natural treatment of melanoma, only the European species has been found to effectively treat and kill cancer cells. There are three components of mistletoe extract (viscotoxins, alkaloids and lectins) that are responsible for the biological effects of mistletoe on cancer. To treat cancer with mistletoe, the treatment time will span several months to several years. Typically, there are injections of the extract given subcutaneously in the morning anywhere from three to seven times in a week. The dosage should then be gradually increased depending on the patient's age, sex, general health and type of cancer.

Fruits and Vegetables
To beat melanoma using natural treatments, try to improve your diet. You should aim to eat at least five services of vegetables and fruits every day. Be sure that you aren't only eating the same fruits and vegetables daily. The foods that you choose should be high in selenium, vitamin C, beta-carotene and other antioxidants. These foods include citrus fruits, carrots and broccoli. Scientific studies have also shown that individuals that are suffering from melanoma should try to increase their intake of vitamin A and E to ensure that the cancer does not develop again.

Healthy Natural Foods for Melanoma
There are certain foods that you can eat to help treat your melanoma as alternative treatments. These foods include shiitake mushrooms, maitake, reishi, white fish, flaxseed and olive oil, green tea, licorice root, citrus fruits, grapes, garlic, rosemary, onions, hot peppers, cabbage, soy beans, whole grains, sea vegetables, tomatoes and beans. These are all incredibly healthy foods that have been scientifically proven to be wonderfully effective when used to treat melanoma as an alternative treatment.

Omega-3 Natural Remedy for Melanoma
Scientists have found that a very effective natural remedy for melanoma is to eat a diet that is low in omega-6 fatty acids and high in omega-3 fatty acids. This diet is also very helpful to prevent melanoma from forming or returning. You can eat fish with olive oil but the best source is flax seed oil. It does not have the mercury and the other pollutants found in fish. Avoid sunflower oil and safflower oil. Butter is actually thought to be safer to eat in this diet than corn oil solely because of its higher ratio of omega-3 fatty acids. When you eat foods that are high in omega-6 fatty acids, the production of prostaglandins is increased, and this helps to promote the growth of skin tumors. So, try to have a teaspoon of flax seed oil every day.

Avoiding Processed Foods
As a natural cure for melanoma, avoid foods that have red and yellow dyes. You should also keep away from all processed foods and red meat. It is also wise to stay away from alcohol, caffeinated beverages, aspartame (the sugar found in diet soda), hydrogenated vegetable oils, nitrates (found in processed lunch meats), monosodium glutamate and sugar. If you suffer from melanoma, you'll find that avoiding these foods and limiting your diet to only high-quality organic produce and healthy whole grains, fish and other un-processed foods, you will be able to fight the cancer with a much better success rate.

Drinking Water and Home Remedy for Melanoma
Another wonderful home remedy for melanoma (and a practice that should be followed by everyone) is to simply drink at least eight classes of cold, filtered water every day. This is especially important because it helps the body to flush out waste and other unwanted materials.

Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement
Multivitamin and mineral supplements should be taken daily for melanoma.
* * *
Take ten to twenty five thousand international units of beta-carotene every day. This is a very effective alternative treatment for melanoma and all forms of cancer.
