Burns

Overview

Burns refer to damage to the skin caused by heat of fire.

Burn symptoms vary according to degree. In first degree burns the skin reddens, but only the top layer of the skin (epidermis) is affected. The skin may peel away in several days and usually heals quickly.

In second degree burns blisters are created due to damage to the deeper layer of the skin. Second degree burns usually heal without scarring.

In third degree burns the full thickness of the skin is damaged by the heat or fire, causing the affected area to appear charred or white. Tissues below (bones and muscles) the burn areas may also be exposed. Case of third degree burns requires the attention of a burn specialist in order to be properly treated.

You must see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here.

Health protocols

What to do immediately

If you suffer from burns, immediately run cold water over the affected area. If possible and practical, run cold water over the area for as long as possible (hours if necessary); cover. This will also help prevent blisters.

In cases of second degree burns, place a mixture of baking soda, olive oil, zinc ointment, and pure vitamin E to promote healing and prevent scarring. Take care not to break blisters, and elevate the affected area higher than heart, if possible, to alleviate swelling. To remove substances melted on skin such as plastic or tar, use ice-cold water.

Copper and zinc are lost through wound seepage. Loss of these minerals may significantly increase the need for supplementation during burns.

*Severe burns require immediate professional attention.

Dr. Morter’s Trace Minerals – apply topically

Vitamin E  (Unique E ) www.acgrace.com

Open up the gel cap, prick it with a pin and squeeze the vitamin E on the burn

Aloe Vera (must be pure)

If you have Willard water already mixed, you can spray the Willard water on the burn but please note this is not as effective as the Trace Minerals.

Hydrotherapy:

Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. We suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments. Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.

*Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. The section Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Wateroffers clear instructions and recommendations.

Eat a high-protein diet for second and third degree burns to help repair damaged tissue. Also increase your intake of fluids and high-zinc foods, such as pumpkin seeds and oysters.

Supplements:

Mix the following together: vitamin A, vitamin E, essential fatty acids, zinc oxide, and aloe gel, and apply topically to the affected area. The following nutrients taken orally can also be helpful: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

We know that when the body is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow, leading blockages and eventually disease. Here are some things you can do to combat stress and restore balance:

Ayurvedic Medicine

Apply the paste made of fresh aloe vera gel or plain ghee and coconut oil to the affected areas.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

A salve made with  lithospermum root (zi cao) and black sesame oil is recommended. Ginger juice can also be applied fresh topically. In TCM, Honey is known as Feng Mi and has the ability to nourish yin energy and strengthen the spleen. Apart from its widely recognized nutritional value, honey is also the Chinese people’s favourite as a “neutral” food with medicinal properties.

Aromatherapy

Lavender, geranium, and camphor essential oils are all excellent for helping to heal burns. To prevent blistering, apply two to three drops of lavender oil. (The discovery of the healing properties of lavender oil on burns was actually the basis for research into and development of the field of aromatherapy by French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé.)

Homeopathic Medicine

For first degree burns Calendula, Hypericum, Arnica (for shock), Urtica Urens, and Belladonnacan be helpful. Arnica (for shock), Cantharis, and Belladonna are excellent homeopathic remedies for second degree burns. Although third degree burns require the immediate attention of a physician, they can also benefit from the use of Urtica urens, and Rhus tox.

Herbs

In cases of first degree burns, apply a poultice, salve, or juice of plantain to the burn. Cool aloe vera gel can also be applied. For sunburn cool aloe vera gel applied liberally to the burnt area may be helpful. If badly burned, a salve made with St. John`s wort and calendula flowers may be helpful.

Other

Flower Essences

Rescue Remedy Cream® can be applied (minimum four times a day) on unbroken skin above burn or on healthy skin surrounding – but not on top of – an open wound resulting from burn. Rescue Remedy® liquid can also be used to calm the stressful feelings due to the burn.

Topical Treatments

Ice and vinegar applied to the affected areas can speed healing.

Apply the gel from a freshly cut aloe vera leaf to assist healing

Silver bandages (colloidal silver applied to bandage) applied to first degree burns is also helpful.

Noni Juice

Though not well known, Noni Juice applied directly to burns has a successful anecdotal history. It’s effective if you can get freshly squeezed Noni juice instead of the reconstituted stuff multi-level groups promote. Noni juice has historically demonstrated powerful healing properties with topical applications on burns in the Pacific Islands

Alternative Professional Care

If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of burns: Cell Therapy, Guided Imagery, Light Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Orthomolecular Medicine, Oxygen Therapy (especially Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy), and Traditional Chinese Medicine. (See Glossary for descriptions of these Alternative Therapies.)
