Sugar is not as bad as you think. Recent research has shown that sugar can be used to treat open wounds. See what you have to do.
A study by researchers at the University of Wolverhampton showed that refined sugar is more effective in treating open wounds than antibiotics. This ingredient absorbs liquids from the wound, (liquids which help to develop bacteria), and speeds up healing. In addition, it reduces inflammation, helps to remove dead tissue and stimulates the formation of new tissue and blood vessels.
Steps to use sugar for open wounds:
Mix 1 teaspoon of white sugar with glycerin until you form a paste (like butter). Glycerin helps the sugar stay on the wound. Cut a piece of gauze so you can get a long strip and grease it with Vaseline. Put the piece of gauze around the wound, because it has to act as a barrier for the sugar paste. Then apply the sugar paste over the Vaseline bandage, in the wound area. The layer should be thick, and then cover it with another piece of gauze. Bandage the area without tying it very hard. You have to change the bandage every 2 hours for 4 days. Each time you change the bandage, wash the wound with a saline solution or hydrogen peroxide of 3% concentration, then dry it and add another sugar paste.
Important: the sugar paste should be fresh every time you apply it on the wound. Diabetics can also use sugar to heal their wounds because the sugar won’t into the blood. Be careful, however, not to use this treatment on a bleeding wound, because it will intensify bleeding.
Remember that any alternative treatment should be discussed with your doctor first.
