Did you know that there are natural remedies you can use to avoid skin cancer?

In this video, you'll learn what skin cancer is.Then you're going to discover what causes it and how to avoid it.So let's begin.

How The Skin Works

The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet.It protects us from microbes and regulates our body temperature. Our skin also allows us to perceive touch, heat, and cold.

The skin has three primary layers: the epidermisthe dermis, and the deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis).

The Epidermis

The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin. It provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone.

The epidermis:

  • Makes new skin cells
  • Protects your body
  • Gives your skin its color

The epidermis has three types of cells, these are:

Squamous cells: These are flat cells in the outer part of the skin that shed as new ones form.

Basal cells: These cells are in the lower part of the epidermis, called the basal cell layer. Basal cells divide to form new cells to replace the squamous cells that wear off the skin’s surface.

Melanocytes: These are the cells that can become melanoma. They make a brown pigment called melanin, which gives the skin its tan or brown color. Melanin protects the deeper layers of the skin from the sun.

The Dermis

The dermis is the second layer of the skin.This part of the skin has a tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.The dermis:

  • Makes sweat
  • Grows hair
  • Makes oil (which keeps your skin soft, smooth and waterproof)
  • Helps you feel things
  • Brings blood to your skin

Deeper Subcutaneous Tissue(Hypodermis)

The bottom layer of the skin is the deeper subcutaneous tissue or hypodermis.  It consists of fat and connective tissue.

This skin layer:

  • Attaches the dermis to your muscles and bones
  • Controls your body temperature
  • Helps the blood vessels and nerve cells
  • Stores your fat that pads your muscles and bones and protects them from bumps and falls.

What Is Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer is the most common of all human cancers. About 1 million people in the U.S. get it each year. There are three major types of skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

There are also other unusual types of skin cancers like Merkel cell tumors. But in this video, I will only talk about the three most common skin cancers.

Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal cell cancer is the most common type of skin cancer. It often develops on the face and neck. This cancer tends to grow slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body.

Basal cell cancer arises in the skin’s basal cells, which line the deepest layer of the epidermis. This cancer often looks like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, or scars.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell cancer is the second most common form of skin cancer. It develops in squamous cells inside the epidermis. Squamous cell carcinoma is often not life-threatening.

But it can be aggressive in some cases. People with this skin cancer often develop scaly, red patches, open sores, or warts on their skins.The third most common skin cancer is melanoma.


Melanoma is cancer that begins in the melanocytes. These tumors are usually brown or black. But some melanomas can appear pink, tan, or even white.Melanoma is less common than squamous and basal cell cancers.

But it’s more likely to grow and spread when left untreated. Melanomas can develop anywhere on the skin. But they are more likely to start on the chest and back in men and on the legs in women.


Melanoma is the most aggressive skin cancer

The neck and face are other common sites. You can also develop melanoma on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and under the nails.

Other more unusual places are the eyes, mouth, genitals and anal. You can identify a malignant melanoma by using the "A-E" guideline.

Melanoma ABCDE Guide





Non-cancerous moles are often symmetrical.

Melanoma lesions are often irregular, or not symmetrical, in shape. 


Benign moles have smooth, even borders. 

Melanoma lesions have irregular borders that are difficult to define.


Normal moles are usually a single shade of brown or tan.

The presence of more than one color can sometimes be a warning sign of melanoma.


Less than 6 millimeters in diameter.

Melanoma lesions are often greater than 6 millimeters in diameter.


Benign moles look the same over time.

A malignant mole evolves and gets bigger.

So now that I have explained what skin cancer is let's learn why we get it.

What Causes Skin Cancer?

1. How Stress Manifest Skin Cancer 

One of the reasons why we get cancer is because of stress and emotional trauma. It makes total sense when you understand how the universe works.The world seems solid, but that is an illusion.If you zoom in on atoms, there appear to be more than 99.99% space. 


All matter is energy

But that space isn’t empty. It’s filled with energy. No matter how solid that matter may appear to us, it is still energy and information. Everything in its core is a waveform.

Because our bodies are waveforms, we can affect it with our thoughts.

Dr. Hamer's Surprising Cancer Discovery

Dr. Hamer is the founder of German New Medicine. He made a surprising discovery about the emotional connection to cancer. Hamer worked at a cancer clinic in Munich in Germany. 

Therefore he could talk to cancer patients about their emotional trauma. All his patients experienced an unexpected shock before their cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Hamer obtained brain scans, of all his cancer patients. He found out that a particular area of the brain controlled a specific organ. Every cancer has a distinct conflict shock.

Every cancer has a distinct conflict shock

Each conflict shock affects a unique part of the brain that relays it to the organ. Hamer learned that diseases run in two phases. We have the active conflict phase that activates the moment we have the shock.

Cancer grows in the active phase. And at the moment we resolve that conflict, we enter the healing phase. Hamer found out that cancer is not a disease but a biological conflict.

When we experience a specific emotional struggle, it activates a particular biological program. Our bodies go into fight or flight mode if there is an immediate danger. But your body can’t see the difference between an imagined or a real situation.

So it will run the same programs whether the threat is real or not. Dr. Hamer discovered yet another biological rule. He found out that a conflict about one's mother or child affects the left side of the body.

If the conflict is about everybody else the right side will respond. For a left-handed person, it is the other way around. So this is what Hamer discovered about skin cancer.

I'll start with melanoma.

Biological Conflict Of Melanoma

According to Dr. Hamer, the biological conflict linked to melanoma is an attack conflict.An attack conflict is an attack by a person or animal. 

It can be a hit against the body or the head, in sports, in a fight or an accident. Other reasons for it can be:

  • Surgery
  • Injections
  • Stabbing or piercing pain
  • Assaults
  • A needle biopsy
  • Vaccinations
  • Being scolded
  • Threats

An insult against one’s intelligence can affect the face or forehead. Sexist remarks or an attack against one’s sexual orientation may create cancer below the waist. Hearing offensive words affects the skin of the ear.

Discrimination or an insult against one’s integrity can impact the whole body. Dirty words thrown at one’s face or gossiping behind one’s back might also provoke this conflict.

From a biological viewpoint, melanoma is a form of self-defense. It provides a protective layer against further attacks.

Biological Conflict Of Basal- And Squamous Carcinoma

The biological conflict linked to Basal cell and Squamous cell cancer is a separation conflict. A separation conflict is a fear of losing touch or contact with someone. 

Examples include:

  • The threat of a divorce 
  • Fear that a loved one might leave, move away, or die
  • Terrorizing boss, teacher, or annoying colleague
  • A difficult long-distance or weekend relationship
  • Feeling rejected by a person
  • An abusive parent or spouse

Children also experience separation conflicts when their parents scold, punish or abuse them. Elderly people might feel separated from the pack when they have to move into a nursing home.

Or after the death of a life-long spouse or friend. You can also experience it when you want to separate from something close to the skin. For example a face mask, oxygen mask, a helmet, hat, clothing, shoes, and more.

Not being able to touch an object can also cause this biological conflict. The tumor can grow at the site where you experience the separation. For example, on the cheek, on the belly, or on whatever area of the skin we feel that a loved one was torn from.

A separation from a loved one can be distressing on an emotional plane. In nature, the separation from the pack is an emergency. Thus, a special biological program is there to make your coop with this traumatic event.

During the conflict shock, the skin loses sensitivity towards touch. The sensory paralysis is a natural form of protection from further traumas of this kind. As a result of the loss of epidermal cells, the skin becomes dry, rough, and may flake.

The resolution of the conflict is the turning point. When you heal on the psychological level, the skin also starts to recover. During this repair process, the skin becomes inflamed, itchy, blistery, and swollen.

2. Ionizing Radiation Can Cause More Cancer  

Another reason for skin cancer is radiation. Radiation of specific wavelengths, called ionizing radiation, can damage DNA and cause cancer. Ionizing radiation includes radon, x-rays, gamma rays, and other forms of high-energy radiation. 

Other examples include:

  • Atomic bomb survivors in Japan
  • Patients treated with high doses of radiation for cancer
  • Arsenic
  • People exposed during the Chernobyl nuclear accident
  • Uranium miners
  • Hydrocarbons in tar, oils, soot

The Sun Does Not Create Skin Cancer

Dermatologists and medical professionals often blame the sun for the increase in skin cancer. The cosmeceutical industry created an anti-sunshine hysteria to sell sunscreens.

Most of the dermatology profession have bought into the lie. Mainstream media tell people to avoid the sun and apply copious amounts of sunscreen.There is little evidence that sunscreens prevent most types of skin cancer.

The sun does not cause skin cancer

Excessive UV radiation from the sun can damage the skin but does not cause skin cancer. We need the sun to generate enough vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential for our health. When you use sunscreens, you block out any vitamin D.

Low vitamin D levels lead to health problems, including cancer. People who get regular, moderate sun exposure are less likely to get melanoma than those who don’t get enough sunshine.

Most melanomas also occur on parts of the body that receive little or no sun exposure. It’s more dangerous to avoid the sun than it is to get regular, moderate sun exposure.

If you avoid getting sunburned, the benefits of the sun far outweigh the cons.


The skin has three primary layers.

There are three major types of skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

The biological conflict linked to melanoma is an attack conflict.

Basal cell and squamous cell cancer is a separation conflict.

Ionizing radiation can damage DNA and create cancer.

Moderate sun exposure does not cause skin cancer.
