Treating physical injuries does not need to be expensive. There are safe and organic ways to heal scrapes, cuts, and bruises.
Exercise and training keep your body fit and prepares it for a coming competition. However, exerting more effort than the body can handle could lead to injuries. If the injury is too serious, you must ask for professional help. If not, you can treat them in your home using organic treatments. Just be sure not to randomly pick herbs to use as medicine as you might cause more damage to your body.
Here is a list of organic remedies that would do the trick of healing minor cuts and bruises.
Garlic contains allicin which proves to be almost as effective as a 1% penicillin solution. In other words, it has antibacterial and antifungal attributes. You can use it to heal wounds especially skin damages.
Apply garlic to the affected area for 20-25 minutes. Make sure that it does not stay on your skin for more than the allotted time. For better results, you can mix the crushed garlic with wine and let it set for 2-3 hours. Apply the mixture to the affected area once or twice a day.
TURMERIC AND BROMELAIN
Turmeric has an antibiotic element that helps prevent any bacterial infection and relieve inflammation. Its analgesic action can also relieve pain. Bromelain, on the other hand, is known for reducing tissue and muscle swelling. Both can help speed up the healing process by forming new skin cells and closing wounds.
Combine turmeric and bromelain and apply them to the area that’s swelling. You can also take them internally.
Surprisingly, potatoes are often used to heal cuts and they can do so effectively. They have properties that draw out infection from any wound, thus reducing the inflammation.
To prepare your potato poultice, shred the potato using a grater and spread it on a sanitized cloth. Apply the cloth to your cut and wrap it up. Change it after every four hours. However, you can also put it at night and remove it when you wake up the next morning. Just make sure to thoroughly clean the affected area afterward.
Castor oil is known for being an antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial agent. It alleviates pain and heals injuries by targeting the cause of the skin damage. It also lessens the appearance of scars.
Warm castor oil by putting a small amount on your hands and rubbing them together. Then, massage the affected area. Cover it with a clean cloth and put a warm water bottle on top of it. Leave the bottle for 20-30 minutes to allow the skin to absorb the oil.
Note: Some people are sensitive to castor oil, so make sure you do a patch test before you apply it to the wound.
It’s great to be able to heal any wound with the use of organic products. However, nothing can still beat the healing hands of a professional. Make sure to ask the doctor’s advice for more serious injuries.
