Healing Leg Ulcers Naturally

If you really want to be grossed out, just google pictures of Leg Ulcers, this type of wound is just plain old nasty. The problem with leg ulcers is that they are persistent infectious wounds that just don’t want to heal no matter what you throw at them.

Anti-biotic treatment is typically used to help control this kind of super infection, the problem arises when a patient doesn’t respond to treatment. In some extreme cases the leg (limb) may have to be amputated as a measure of stopping the spreading infection.

So the most immediate concern for practitioners is to control the infection ASAP. So if you stop responding to Medical treatments you could consider various natural medicine options. It just might be worth investigating rather than losing a limb!

One of the treatments that I have been using incorporates Ultra-Pure Bentonite Clay, plus some other secret herbs and spices. It has been traditionally used by Native American Indians for thousands of years for a range ailments both internally and externally. Ultra-Pure Bentonite Clay is naturally rich in minerals, however is more renowned for its absorbent qualities. It is on this basis that it’s been suggested topical applications of Pure Bentonite Clay may aid healing external wounds. The highly absorbent naturel of Ultra-Pure Bentonite means it will swell in size when mixed with water which is why we suggest allowing 24-48hours of soaking prior to use.

It is also important not forget the importance of diet and nutrition to support the best healing outcomes for your body.

Suggested Use:

Clay Compress or Mud Pack – Take a small amount of the clay and add to water allowing it to hydrate for 24-48 hours.

Clay is extremely absorbent and needs time to completely hydrate.

Start by applying a small amount of the wet clay onto a sterile dressing (gauze) to form a poultice and wrap with plastic wrap to avoid mess on clothing ect. Replace the clay 2-3 times per day. If you feel nauseous, remove the clay immediately as this may be to detoxifying for you at this time. Remeber that Ultra-Pure Bentonite Clay Highly Absorbent.

Another option is to pack the clay into the wound, DO NOT ALLOW IT TO DRY IN THE WOUND. This goes the same for the wrap, not to let it dry, so changing the dressing frequently or checking to make sure it’s still moist. Replace the clay 2-3 times per day. You may also want irrigate the wound with saline between treatments.

For serious wounds we recommend you speak to your health professional before attempting this at home.
