Background and Directions for use
is a reddish-black salve made of various herbs and roots. It helps in
promoting “Tissue Repair” and is a folk remedy, which has been used to
cure people and animals of external and internal cancers, tumors and a wide
range of viral infections.
TR4 is not a pharmaceutical endorsed by the medical profession, it is a folk
remedy. Therefore, no guarantees or claims can be made about the effects or
results from using TR4. It must be understood that whoever uses this salve
must make that decision based upon judgement and accept full responsibility
for any effects.
the turn of the 20th century, the McCrorey family lived in an area
of the United States, which was affected by the so-called “Indian Wars”.
During this period, the matriarch of the family was attending to the laundry
when she discovered a man, said to be an Apache, who had been critically
wounded in the stomach and hip. Taking pity on the seriousness of the man’s
injuries, she brought him inside and eventually nursed him back to health. The
grateful man was unable to give her any money, but offered something far more
valuable out of a sense of thankfulness. She accepted his generous offer to
provide something that was “worth far more than money”, and followed him
into the desert, where he taught his healer how to identify a number of
plants. After gathering a supply of each plant, they returned to the family
homestead where the man taught her how to effect the right combination for a
skin healing paste. This knowledge remained with the family and a friend.
son, Howard McCrorey, started a company in the 1960’s in an attempt to make
the salve available to everyone. The company had some tests done on TR4 in the
early 60’s at the University of Colorado, to discover more about it. The
Veterinarian College at Fort Collins tested TR4 on all viruses known at the
time and discovered that it killed those viruses on contact. Sarcoids on
horses (similar to skin cancer) had an 80% cure rate with one topical
application (100% with two applications).
many years, TR4 had been used to cure cancer eye in cows, save herds of calves
from early viral diseases, treat sarcoids on horses, and to treat abnormal
tissue growths in all kinds of pets. By word of mouth, ranchers, homesteaders
and folks of the rodeo circuits have used it on themselves for external
McCrorey was the first known to use TR4 internally. He had been diagnosed with
stomach cancer in the 1960’s. After checking himself into the hospital, the
night before surgery, he took his first dose of TR4 in a capsule without
informing his doctors. The next morning they postponed surgery because he was
running a fever, which continued for several days (see below -“Why health
looks worse before it improves”). On the fifth day, Howard said he passed a
large quantity of black, vile smelling feces - apparently the growth itself.
When the doctors took x-rays, they discovered that the cancerous growth was
gone. Howard went on to live another 25 years, without a recurrence of stomach
cancer. He later used TR4 to cure himself of bone cancer in the 1980’s. In
his seventies, Howard got caught in a blizzard and died of pneumonia. Several
close relatives carried on his work with TR4.
remedies are used as part of an informal body of healing knowledge in what can
be called “natural medicine”. People experimenting with substances from
nature and observing their effects had developed them over generations. The
natural medicine approach does not have the scientific rigor (or the primary
focus on the body) that the conventional medicine model favors. Natural
medicine could benefit from more scientific study of its claims, but until now
funding has usually gone towards the approaches favored by the AMA (etc).
medicine includes practices to clean out and nourish the body (as well as
attitudes). Some of these practices may include allowing fevers to burn out
disease (compare Howard McCrorey’s reaction), fasting and enemas to cleanse
toxins from the body and turning to healthier nourishment. Using TR4 will
often create a healing crisis in the body, especially if a person has
been living the somewhat unhealthy lifestyle of a “normal” North American.
A healing crisis is the body’s dramatic reaction to our allowing it to spew
out the poisons it has been storing as tumors or other disease. That dramatic
reaction can look like health is getting worse, such as boils on the skin,
foul breath, sweat, urine and feces, and fevers all before the body rebounds
into greater, more solid health.
“Folk remedies, like TR4 have not yet been methodically tested and documented for curing human diseases. Consequently, each person needs to discover if TR4 is appropriate for them, what size dose works best, and how often it should be used – even though suggestions are made in this document.”.
the experiences of many people who have used TR4, some general guidelines may
be given that are most useful if you pay attention to the effect the
salve is having on you.
Never touch TR4 with metal -
always use plastic or wood
is not a gentle healer. In many reported cases, it is relentless substance
that hunts down and penetrates all abnormal tissue. Pain, swelling and
sometimes fever is associated during its use. Animals seem to mind it less
than people do. In almost all reported cases, TR4 completely eliminates
abnormal tissue and stimulates re-growth of either healthy tissue or scar
tissue (see appendix A for suggested healing formula to reduce/eliminate
scarring). Some people using TR4 have reported moderate to heavy scarring when
used externally (on the skin). If scarring cannot be tolerated on the face or
elsewhere, this must be taken into consideration as a significant risk factor.
following recommendations are based on what the majority of users have found
so far to be effective. These recommendations describe the absolute MINIMUM
doses that people have found to be effective.
It cannot be stressed enough that TR 4 is VERY
POTENT. Do not assume that if a little works, more will be better.
Use the smallest doses possible, and increase only if it truly seems necessary
to you. Otherwise, you will engender far more pain than necessary, and extend
the healing period much longer than necessary.
is how others have used TR4 on external growths.
A beneficial option discovered in the 1980’s. Begin
drinking a catalyst water, such as Formula K (see note on product
attached), Lifeline or Willard Water, several days ahead of applying TR4. This
will greatly increase the oxygen in the body, build red corpuscles and
equip the cells with an increased ability to throw off poisons and to
assimilate nutrients. This is not essential but makes a difference in healing
the area and freeing up more energy.
Clean the area of abnormal growth well and cover the visual surface of
the mole or cancer with a thin layer of TR4, just enough to make the area
reddish-black from the paste. Cover with a clean bandage for 24 hours. If
severe pain develops, only leave the paste on for 8 hours. Then, wash the
paste off the skin and apply plain Vaseline and cover with another bandage.
About 24 hours later, wash the area and apply another layer of TR4 to
the growth and cover the area with a clean bandage for another 24 hours (or
only 8 hours in cases of severe pain). The growth may become more painful or
just itchy because the body is beginning to eject its dying tissue. Often a
swelling will occur in which the growth will become twice or more its normal
size, and the area around the growth may swell. The growth may lighten in
color after the first day, and may then “re-darken” slightly or even
become “dead white”.
After this second application, wash off the paste and cover the area
well with Vaseline and another clean bandage. Usually after this second
application, the growth itself is dead. More than two applications
do not seem to be necessary for external growths. More applications cause
increased pain and longer healing time.
Now the body goes into healing crisis. There may or may not be a low or
medium grade fever, and the area around the growth will swell, be painful and
tender, and sometimes some pus may form under and around the growth as the
body pushes the growth out.
You may shower or wash the area every day. It is essential to keep it
covered with new daily applications of Vaseline and clean bandages. Keeping
Vaseline over the healing zone seems essential based on experience.
In about 10 days (for most people) the body completely pushes out the
dead growth and the fever disappears (fever is not common when removing
external growths, but is possible). Resist the temptation to pick at the dead
tissue or trying to hasten its separation, let the body do it,
The former growth tends to completely “fall out” at about the
10-day mark, leaving a hole or cavity that may temporarily be deep into the
muscle). Remarkably, you may see into the muscle (and occasionally bare bone
below), but there is no bleeding. Following this stage, the body will fill in
the “hole” with either healthy tissue or scar tissue, depending on a
person’s individual body chemistry and health (this will likely take 10 or
During this “hole filling” period, wash the area well each day, and
re-apply Vaseline and a clean bandage. Tenderness may be present in that area
as long as 6 months, although, for most people, the space is completely re-grown
with non-cancerous (or non-mole) tissue by the 20 day mark.
during the first month, it is wise to assist the body’s healing process.
Some choices you may consider include: a catalyst altered water (which
normalizes cells, assisting them to expel toxins and more easily assimilate
nutrients - digestion is greatly improved, as well as elimination); a full
complement of vitamins and supplements such as SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase);
insuring that your body is receiving enough rest; trying to limit stresses
which disease your body; and try eating more wholesome (non-refined) organic
foods; the body will also heal much more rapidly if you refrain from alcohol
and caffeine, because these destroy B vitamins and wear out the immune system.
be dismayed during this stage (having a “hole” in your body); just keep
the area clean and sealed with Vaseline every day. Many people reported that
bleeding did not occur even though large masses of tissue had fallen out and
that the body completely filled in the area where the growth had been with
healthy or scar tissue. Maintaining a positive attitude (knowing that your
body is responding, as it should) will enable your body to release hormones
and enzymes that lead to healing.
internal cancers or abnormal growths
diagnosed by medical doctors as having incurable cancer who have summoned up
their will to live, made some changes in their lives and used TR4 have
completely cured themselves. However, know that in some cases, TR4 seems to
make no difference. This has been especially true when the person is bitterly
convinced it is of no use; that their case is too different; or they hold
themselves locked into a destructive lifestyle. Also note that TR4 has not
been helpful with the kind of breast cancer associated with severe hormone
imbalance in one reported case.
medical approach is certainly successful in some people’s lives, however, if
you are in the process of using chemotherapy, it is advised that you DO NOT
USE TR4. The chemical action that occurs within the combination of herbs in
TR4 could clash with the substances in chemotherapy. TR4 is an alternative
tool for healing, whether or not the medical approach has been used
before. Too much is unknown for both approaches to be used together, though
positive results have been experienced by some, no recommendation can
be made to follow their lead.
the 1960’s, people have heard of TR4, by word of mouth, after having become
extremely advanced in cancer or other viral diseases Often they are in
such great pain, for so long that they are tempted to give up, just for the
release. Yet, the ones who decide to use TR4 usually have a
stubborn resolve (underneath the pain) to live. They refuse to give in to a
medical diagnosis that says they must die and they are resolute to find a way
into a healed body. They find TR4 and with a courageous spirit that insists on
healing, take it to do its relentless work.
treat internal cancers, abnormal growths, or viral related diseases, it
is helpful to support oneself at all levels. This can begin with an
introspective contemplation on one’s life (possibly talking things through
with a supportive, positive friend), and considering where healthy positive
change may be required. Taking stock of one’s relationship with God is a
good place to start, for it is more likely that a body created by God would
return to a state of ease (vs. dis-ease) if we are right with Him and the life
He intends for us. For those who have already entered into that ‘right
relationship’ with Him, perhaps it’s just the manner in which we’re
living our life that isn’t right, or it could just be a matter of living in
the toxic environment of a fallen world. In any case, it is also helpful to
nourish the body with wholesome food (grown without pesticides), so that the
body is freed up to expel the cancer. Drinking 3 to 4 glasses a day of
catalyst-altered water (Formula K, Lifeline or Willard Water) greatly
increases the already remarkable potency of TR4 and speeds recovery, It is
also wise to take a potent Mineral and B-Complex vitamin supplement each day
along with SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase), which stops free-radical activity in
the body associated with aggravating cancer.
Cancer or Viral Disease
great deal of systematic research is needed on the particular, most effective
uses for TR4. What is known and reported here is the result of informal trial
and error on the part of many non-professional folks intent on healing
themselves or their animals. What follows has been gleaned from letters and
interviews with users over 30 years, which means it is based on experience,
but is by no means complete or all-wise!
cancers of all known body zones have dissolved under the onslaught of TR4
which hunts down and kills abnormal tissue wherever it is. Following are known
Colon cancer has been healed with not only the internal dosing
described below, but also using enemas of one quart of water to which is added
I full “dried pea” volume of TR4.
Uterine cancer has been assisted by use of 1 full “dried pea”
volume of TR4 in one quart of warm water as a douche.
A trained person who is able to give assistance if needed should
monitor sensitive areas, like brain cancer. In the case of brain cancer,
because a tumor treated by TR4 may swell, some people have had relief from
pain by having a qualified surgeon drill a small hole in the skull to let
Women have used TR4 on breast cancer with complete elimination of the
cancer and healing of the breast (in one case resulting form a severe hormone
imbalance, it was not effective). When the growth is on the surface of the
breast, applying the paste externally on the cancer in addition to taking it
internally seems to be the most effective approach. In a few cases, women have
reported that not only did TR4 heal the breast cancer, but that most (if not
all) of the previously removed breast tissue grows back.
A few determined individuals have healed themselves of AIDS, including
a father and an infant who was born with it. These have taken TR4 at all times
with the catalyst-altered water, Lifeline.
A few people have cured emphysema in their lungs.
Used as a very small addition in toothpaste, TR4 has cleaned out
abscessed teeth and cured gum diseases such as periodontal disease. Of course,
it is not recommended to use TR4 instead of consulting a dentist. Used once or
twice a week when brushing, TR4 quells plaque on the teeth.
DO NOT USE it if you have open sores in the mouth or cysts on the tongue
unless you are prepared to live through considerable pain and swelling.
At the first slight sensation of a sore throat, TR4 may be mixed, one
“dried pea size” to 8 oz of water and gargled for rapid relief. Many use
it if they are about to get a viral infection of the lungs, nose or throat.
Directions for INTERNAL Healing
Never touch TR4 with metal, always use plastic or wood
TR4 in this minimal dose and frequently:
For the first 3 weeks, use a non-metal utensil to lift out enough paste
to make a ball HALF the size of a dried pea. Make sure you know how big
a dried pea is, even if you need to get one! It may be helpful to
think of this as the size of a wooden match stick HEADS. Take this
very small dose, the size of HALF A DRIED PEA in volume, and stir it into a
small amount of distilled water.
Swallow this brownish liquid, including the herbal fibers you will
notice in the glass, AFTER YOU HAVE EATEN A MEAL. Some people prefer to pack
the half-a-pea dose in a gelatin capsule and swallow it after the meal (the
paste will “melt” the gelatin capsule fairly quickly so it doesn’t help
to make up several ahead of time). Some have also taken TR4 sublingual (under
the tongue - where some of the product will be absorbed directly into the
blood stream) and whatever isn’t absorbed can be washed down with a glass of
During the 3 weeks, take this dose each morning after breakfast, and
each evening after dinner. This means taking TR4 for 3 weeks, twice a day,
always on a full stomach.
TR4 is somewhat acidic having a pH like vinegar, therefore, it is best
to use wood or plastic utensils when handling TR4. ON AN EMPTY STOMACH, THIS
ACIDITY IS ALMOST GUARANTEED TO CAUSE NAUSEA AND A STOMACH ACHE. Only take
your dose after eating to avoid discomfort.
such as appear on the neck or arm, may change from the texture of a hard lump,
to rather soft, pliable, even ‘squishy’. During this period, you may
continuously run a low-grade fever. Sweat, urine and feces may take on an
offensive odor and be darker than usual. At the 3-week mark, it is wise to
have a competent physician take a biopsy, or test your cancer or abnormal
growth for malignancy. For many, but not all people, the test reveals that the
cancerous tissue is dead but present. Depending on how open-minded the
physician may be you might choose to state that you have been taking TR4.
Remember that the medical profession generally does not tolerate folk
the first 3 weeks, it is prudent to take a complete break form the salve. Some
recommend a 5-day hiatus; others would suggest a break of 3 weeks. During this
time you may wish to double your intake of vitamins and minerals in order to
normalize your system. Remember that TR4 has been relentlessly killing
abnormal tissue or viruses and your body needs time to expel the toxins and
‘re-balance’ itself. This may be the optimum solution, but the best that
is presently known.
the break, if you decide that the viral illness or cancer is cured, you may
cease taking TR4. If you think the problem may still be present, enter another
3-week course as described above (i.e.: twice a day, morning and evening after
meals). Some people have chosen to take TR4 for a third course, but if the
problem remains, then TR4 may not be appropriate for you.
you are well, realize that if you have a genetic disposition to cancer it may
be wise to look to the future and consider taking one 3-week course every 6
months (to a year) as a matter of prevention.

Formula For No Scarring
following formula has been used to promote rapid healing with no scarring.
The large doses of vitamins A and E should only be taken for a short period of
time (no more than 15-20 days). The huge amount of vitamin C will not cause a
problem, but you should not stop taking it cold, rather taper off over a few
days. An abrupt lack of vitamin C after the huge intake can cause Rebound

This has worked for some people to eliminate scarring, but has not been rigorously tested to ensure it will work for everyone. It has been suggested that you muscle test yourself on this formula before using it, or have a practitioner of kinesiology test you to see if your individual chemistry will benefit.
Word on TR4 as a Drawing Salve
paste has been used to draw out all kinds of foreign material from the body,
pieces of glass, wood slivers and shrapnel, not otherwise removable by tweezers.
A reported example of the drawing property of TR4 was a person who injured his elbow and for years, every time he bumped it, a big sac Of fluid would form and stay for a few weeks and then it would gradually go back to normal. He put TR4 on the affected area and, after the scab fell off, a small hard object that was assumed to be a bone chip was found. In the six years since that time, the elbow never again developed the egg-sized sac of fluid when bumped.
