Admittedly, I only watched the second part of this dvd, and only purchased it for that. I was not interested in Aldara, any more than I am interested in any conventional cancer treatment. However, the second half of the presentation is excellent. I am sure the first part is equally as good, but I was more interested in knowing more about black salve and the amazing recoveries experienced with it. I am treating my dog for highly malignant melanoma, and he is doing fantastic on natural therapies exclusively. His 'prognosis' according to conventional standards, even if he were to undergo expensive, painful conventional treatment, is death. However, he has been doing various natural therapies, which are fairly simple and for the most part, readily obtainable, and is in excellent health. These consist of other supplements besides black salve, as there are so many that are very effective if used correctly (artemisinin, curcumin, medicinal mushrooms, and various others). However, both people and animals are healing quite well with only one of these therapies, as demonstrated in this dvd. Thousands of people have healed 'terminal' cancer quite effectively with bloodroot salve, as they have done for thousands of years. I am grateful to add this knowledge to my arsenal against this unfortunate disease. I must add that diet, exercise, and love are huge components of cancer care. My dog is feeling better than he has in years since beginning his treatment. I thought he was fine before, but now his coat is shiner and sleeker, his energy level is amazing, he wants to play frisbee and go for hikes and have fun every day. He eats fresh meat and lots of veggies (low carb types) every day, and he is a very happy boy. I have certainly learned a lot about the current medical mythologies around cancer from this experience, and the alternatives to conventional treatment that are far superior in every way. This presentation is an excellent example of that. Get it! There's also a recipe showing how to easily make you're own black salve to have on hand for a fraction of what you might pay for it elsewhere. If you were to purchase black salve on Amazon, I would recommend Zenith Herbal's formula, personally.
