LOMBARD SECRET CANCER REMEDIES





Category: Patent Medicines and Secret Forumla

Dr. J. L. Horr says in Boston Medical and Surgical Journal: "Having
without solicitation on my part, become possessed of the knowledge of the
'secret remedies' employed by the late Doctor Lombard, the 'famous cancer
doctor' of Maine, I feel it my privilege, as a member of a scientific
profession that has only for its object the advancement of knowledge and
the relief of suffering to make a simple statement of the remedies and
methods which were employed in the so-called 'treatment of cancer.' The
remedy employed, if the cancer was small, was the inspissated juice of
leaves of the phytolacca decandra (garget) which was applied in the form
of a plaster until sloughing took place. The after treatment was some
dressing like simple cerate. If the tumor had attained considerable size,
Dr. Lombard first used a paste composed of chloride of zinc and pulverized
sanguinaria until an eschar was produced and then the same plaster as
before was applied until the mass sloughed away. The knowledge of these
remedies was given to me by Dr. Lombard himself, while I was attending him
during his last illness and a few days before his death."
