:) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Well over a year ago Jack gave me two tiny celadine seedlings as he reckoned that their juice would help me get rid of my wart (on the sole of my foot[}:)]).

One of the plants has grown very well indeed (I've now got dozens of little seedlings in case anyone wants some :D ) and last summer I put the yellow juice onto that wart of mine that had been there since I was 14 years old. Those who've met me know that this was quite some time ago[:I]

The wart is gone now. It took several months for it to start to disappear but now it's truly gone.

To make sure it was the celadine juice and not some spontaneous event I didn't treat the two smaller warts. They are still there so they'll get the treatment soon.

Over the years I've tried liquid nitrogen, Milton tablets, thuja oil and a few more plasters and stuff from the pharmacist and some of those treatments were extremely painful. I didn't feel a thing from the celadine juice - no pain whatsoever at any stage of treatment so I'm very very grateful.

Many thanks :)

Those who'd like a seedling and can't come to pick it up - can you please pm me with your mailing address? I think I can afford the 50c postage it costs to send a couple or three but I'm a bit doubtful that the time of year is right. If they get hot in the mail they'll die.

Those who are happy to pick them up please pm me to make a time. I'm usually at home and the seedlings are in Christchurch, not far from the airport.

Simkin - that is brilliant that you have thanked Jack for this. There have been people who have not thanked Jack for some interesting comments over the years (that I love) so good on you for taking the time and Yeah about the wart. I love that you want to pass it on as well. Oprah would love you.

Tell that to the guy on TV that runs the "Grow your own Drugs" program :D

never heard of celandine before, what is it like? I got rid of a few warts as a kid with milkweed sap.

I guess I should relate the story how I come to have the stuff.

I was at a market in Dunedin and this sheila was selling herb plants. I asked her what was that and it's use and she told me it was Greater Celandine, sometimes called Celandine Major and it was great for getting rid of warts. She then said that she couldn't actually tell me but she had been told of people who had skin cancers disappear after using it.

I bought one and stuck it in me garden and more or less forgot about it.

A year or two later I was at an air show market up at Twizel and a doctor calling himself the flying doctor from Bulls was there doing checks on sun damage on men for free. I had a couple of bloody annoying little lumps on my forehead so asked him what he thought.

At first he said seein as they were diametrically opposed each side of my forehead where my hairline used to be he thought they must be horn buds.

I started to think I should be out trying to have a hellava lot more fun when he he said he was just kidding, they were actually pre-cancerous growths and I should go to my doctor.

Now seein as I hate doctors normally I thought bugger them I'll fix it meself. I tried on only one of these things, cutting a leaf of the Celandine and dabbing the yellow sap on me horm bud once or twice a day when ever I remembered.

A week later it felt sorta itchy and I rubbed it and the bloody thing fell right out of my head leaving a neat clean little hole.

See you were right I did have a hole in me head.

I then started dabbing the yellow sap on the other lump and same thing, all gone.

I see it is quite poisonous but I am not suggesting you drink the sap, just dab the stuff on the outside. It can multiply and become a bit of a weed too so be warned.

Hey Jack - would they work on Moles? I have so many and every once in a while my daughter (nurse) says you should get that one checked out. Well I have more scars than you would believe and none have been a problem.

I know and respect that others on this site have had malanoma's so no disrepect intended toward you I promise but if this stuff really works, then I would be keen to try it in a few sus moles?

Can I get some from you and how would that work given I am... where is Hampden?

DiDi I see you are way up on Mud Island near that smelly place. Hampden is a beautiful little village on the coast of Otago.

I just dunno how to get some up to you. Any ideas?

As for working on moles,I dunno that either but ifin I was worried about one I would be using anything I could think of that God has given us before letting some joker in a white coat start cutting into me.

As for melanoma, do some googling on Dr. Eva Hill. She wrote a couple of books. She got taken to the High Court because she proved that melanoma was curable.

She used to be in Hamilton so you may be able to find out a bit more from some older people up there who may remember her. She saved my aunty's life.

This is interesting. Recently I discovered a wart half way down my thumb. I kept thinking it was a splinter & with receding youth, the eyesight didn't show up that it was a wart until recently.

Have just read these posts & started to write down Great Celandine on my deskpad when bells started ringing. I had already written GC in another corner of my deskpad. I had learned about it via Google.

I'm a bit far away to get a plant from you but will see what I can find up this way - Manawatu.

As youngsters we contracted warts from horses who had got them off the cattle. One had huges ones on her hands (right across the palm of the hand) & was treated with drugs which had terrible side affects. After ceasing taking them because of the side affects they suddenly went away. I only had a few & they used to look awful when dirt got in them so I covered them with nail polish to look more presentable when out. They eventually went away. I learnt on Google that nail polish will kill them off because it starves them of oxygen. I've been putting it on lately but haven't been conscientious enough yet.

Thanks for the info Jack & Simkin.

Sue, will you let us know how your plant gets on. If it survives in Levin then perhaps it might up here at Tangimoana for me & for Sod at Masterton. Probably best to wait & see if yours survives after the posting and if it's happy in the North Island, before we ask for any to be sent.

Thanks to Jack and Simkin.

There are heaps of tiny seeds from the plant Simkin sent too, so I'll plant them and see what happens!
