Bloodroot has been used for the treatment of skin irritations for hundreds of years . Applying a bloodroot powder that was mixed with mud and Goldenrood root was used by the American Native Indians to remove Bug stingers, slivers, boils and even for the treatment and removal of infectious moles. This is where our Indian Mud started from.
Then to make the use of Bloodroot easier, the herb was mixed into a salve where other herbs and activated charcoal was added to help with the process treating these skin irratations.
During the time where people wanted to speed the process up in the removal of these skin irratations an additive of " Zinc Cloride " was added . This chemical is responsible for the eating away of the skin on and around the spot whene the Bloodroot was placed on the skin. This Zinc Cloride should be avoided, this is the chemical that the FDA does not want you to use. Your skin can be eaten away, and holes are left , along with scaring. But even with the FDA warnings people continue to use products with Zinc Cloride because they want to see instant results or feel that this can't happen to them..
"What Ails Ya " does not use any Zinc Cloride in their Bloodroot Salves. What Ails Ya has not had a single incident of a skin problem from its use. If a bloodroot product does not work , for example on a mole, it's probally that the mole is a natural part of the body. If the person has had this mole for a long time and it hasn't changed, theres no harm from having it. Most times Bloodroot works only on active new skin irritations or growths. Black salve helps your body expell foreign cells...
But we suggest that you see a Doctor or Skin Specialist Please do not try to cure yourself. If you suspect cancer, please don't hesitate to call your doctor. If there is redness or a lot of swelling, also contact a professional.. Black salves help expell foreign cells from the body.
