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.
