More and more people have started to turn away from synthetic drugs and invasive procedures in favour of natural or holistic healing methods, and for good measure! Mother Nature has millions of years of experience and so many different ways in which it heals.
Here a few ways to incorporate natural methods in your first aid, with comments from natural GP Dr. Wendy Denning!
Typically applied as a cream, arnica also known as wolf’s bane, is primarily used to treat muscle sprains, strains and bruises.
Antifungal and hydrating, Manuka honey kills bacteria and creates a moist environment for the wound to heal.
Magnesium sulphate, or epsom salts boost magnesium levels soothe sore, aching muscles and detoxify the body.
TEA TREE OIL
This plant has antibacterial, antiseptic and even slightly anaesthetic properties and can be used for anything from bug bites to toothaches and zits!
Years ago, I saw a man being treated in hospital with tea tree oil applied to his whole body daily to fight MRSA as antibiotics were no longer working. Having been very sick, he slowly improved and was able to discharged from hospital. Thus, I like the Thursday Plantation Balm because it’s so safe, easy to use and reduces pain and welling when applied, which is very important for everyone but particularly for children.
