Stress
It is vital to learn to control stress. Do remember that each time you frown you deepening the creases and as your body doesn't create collagen as it used to. It takes longer to recover and repair. One person said open your eyes and stop frowning. Not sure about that. But if it works for you. Then do that.

Turmeric powder. It needs to be less than half a teaspoon

Treating a wound the natural way. What should you do?

What do you do if you have a wound that does not want to heal? How do you treat it? Truth is most of us believe using a product such as Dettol Savlon or any other antiseptic liquid alike is good to disinfect a wound. But here is the part you probably didn't know. As good as these products are. It has a troublesome side too. It kills all bacteria. Meaning those good bacteria too. So with that in mind. I want to share a few ways that is safe to disinfect a wound. The natural way.


The first way. Vinegar 

This one applies especially if you have to deal with a wound that doesn't heal easily. Spray vinegar. Just two three squirts is enough. In small amounts it kill the bio-film that is preventing a wound from healing. How do you know that your sore has bio-film? By the dark red color. That some will describe to have a shine on it. But either way. It doesn't have that light pink color that a wound would have otherwise. And obviously isn't easy to heal.

I have not used this method as I prefer salt water. But am told that it will sting because of the acidity of the vinegar.

The second way. Salt.

If you are a loyal reader of this site. You would have read that salt is one of the most natural ways to disinfect.

1 teaspoon (5ml) salt
500 ml boiled water. Cooled down.

Mix everything in a bowl. Wash the wound with the salt water. Dry the area gently. 

Use this salt water mixture to kill all the harmful bacteria while protecting the good ones. This advice was given to me after I had to treat a wound.

The third way. Raw honey.

Honey can actually heal a diabetic wound. 
Honey is one of natures most potent antibacterial products that few probably will consider when dealing with a wound. If you apply raw honey on a wound it will kill the harmful bacteria and even help the wound to heal. 


What else can be done when dealing with wounds?

Depending on the wound and the person. It is also good to have high protein meals as it encourages wounds to heal fast. Protein is the building blocks of your body. Protein is a must for someone that has a wound that needs to heal. So whether you are a vegetarian or not. Fill up on those proteins. Whether it be peanuts meat or any other source. You will find that it helps the wound to heal faster. 

Please Note

But take note. This is very important. If you are dealing with a wound that does not want to heal no matter what you do. It is absolutely important to see a doctor. It can tell you something is wrong and needs attention. 

This article is based on two things. Personal experience that I know works. And advice from a lady that deals with wounds all the time. A lady that deals with diabetic wounds. So as I share it. I know it really works. I too used products like Dettol and Savlon thinking I am doing the right thing. But after my conversation with the lady I realized that it isn't the wisest thing to do.

I hope this article is helpful and answered your concern. If you have any questions comments or suggestions. Feel free to comment below or contact us.

Instructions

Making your own Scoby for Kombucha at home

As the last article mentioned today we will discuss making Kombucha. But after intitial thoughts I decided it is best to discuss how to make your own scoby for Kombucha. Which is off course the most important part of Kombucha tea. The big secret. You can purchase scoby or get at least a quarter from anyone you know. But I think it is best to give an article on growing your own scoby for Kombucha.
Please read the previous article if you want to make your own Kombucha. As it is good to know the precautions to take before making this wonderful and healthy tea at home.

Process to make Scoby for Kombucha.

It is vital to purchase a bottle of raw unflavored Kombucha. As that is what you need to grow your own scoby. Also known as mother of mushroom. Pour the kombucha into a container or jar. Preferably glass. Now leave this aside for now as we continue the next step. 


Use a separate container, jar or cup to make your own tea. Make 1 cup tea. Whether it is green tea, black tea or rooibos. It is your personal preference. As each has their own unique health benefits. Pour hot water into container. (just 250 ml to 300 ml will be enough) Now add sugar. 2 table spoons should be enough. The sugar is a vital part of the process. The scoby feeds on the sugar so do not leave the sugar out of this process! Leave it to cool down until it reaches room temperature. When it is cooled down add the freshly made tea to the Kombucha. Now make sure to cover the container with a dish towel. You can use a coffee filter too if you prefer. But make sure it is sealed tightly with a rubber band. This whole process should be kept very hygienic and clean! 

Place the tea in a warm spot. Temperature should be between 68 to 85ºF . (20 to 29ºC) But out of direct sunlight. It must be left for at least 7 days so a new scoby can form. After a week you should see what is called a baby scoby as it develops on the surface. 
So how should it look? 

A Scoby when it is starting to develop looks translucent and clear. But as time passes it start to change color looking less translucent and clear, white and thicker. It starts to look like gelatin. Leave the scoby to form till it is at least a quarter inch thick before making your own Kombucha. This process can take a month. If after three weeks you dont see a scoby forming you can throw you can start this process over. 

Next article will share the Kombucha recipe. As the first article mentioned why it is good to make Kombucha. Also the precautions. This article is about the process to make the scoby that is need to Kombucha. And the next article will be about the process to make your own Kombucha at home. With the scoby we just created.
