Damage to the skin or underlying tissues. Any type of injury to the skin poses a threat due to the risk for infection or further damage if the wound becomes complicated.
Wound symptoms and healing times can vary greatly. The primary symptom of all wounds is pain to a lesser or greater degree. Bruising and/or bleeding can also occur. If left untreated, wounds can also lead to infection.
There are many types of wounds, including superficial paper cuts, surgical wounds, pressure sores, diabetic ulcers, and wounds due to trauma (accidents, cuts, etc.).
Acute wounds can be as simple as a minor cut or scratch that require little more than cleansing and bandaging, or as complicated as a wound requiring surgical closure (stitches or suturing) or even greater care. Chronic wounds, such as arterial, venous, or diabetic ulcers, may involve greater time for healing to occur.
Wounds can be caused by cuts, surgical procedures, bites, or trauma (blows to the body), or they can result as a complication from a disease, such as diabetic ulcers, or from prolonged bed rest (bed sores).
As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here
Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:
- Eliminate Candida: Click here to find out how
- Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
- Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic. Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water. It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.
- Go on a fast to clear your system of toxic waste www.wecarespa.com
Firstly it is essential to keep the wound clean in order to speed up healing and lessen the risk of infection. Bathing the area with a sterile saline solution is the best approach. Gauze bandages can then be applied to the affected areas.
Unprocessed honey applied topically can help to disinfect wounds, sores, and actively promote wound healing (see research studies).
- We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body. Read more about colonics by clicking here. Find a practitioner here.
- Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state. During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water.
A diet rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and zinc enhances wound healing. Foods high in these nutrients include green and yellow vegetables, raw seeds and nuts, eggs, and cold-water fish, as well as fresh organic fruits and vegetables.
Avoid all saturated and processed fats, as well as refined and processed foods, sugars, caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol.
It is important to not add further toxicity to your system when your body is trying to heal so also to adhere to the following:
- Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
- Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
- Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
- Avoid all fast food restaurants
- Avoid all canned food.
- Eliminate conventional dairy products. The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows. If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
- Avoid conventional beef. The best beef is organic grass fed beef.
www.grasslandbeef.com The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey.
Recommended nutrients include vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, pantothenic acid, and zinc. Chlorella has been shown to speed up cell growth and noni fruit extract is also useful because of its ability to improve immune function, stimulates cell regeneration, and fight pain and inflammation.
As well as the above supplements, also include the following to speed up healing:
- Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.

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.
