Prevention Is Key – Proper Wound Care Prevents Scars!
My go to for wound care is Colloidal Silver 500 ppm. Place it directly on the wound and surrounding area everywhere a Band-Aid will touch. Air dry. Apply a 3M waterproof bandage. The area is now secure under that bandage. It is waterproof so it can go surfing, in the shower or bathtub. It likes to stay on for at least five to 10 days. NOTE: these bandages are made to stay on! (I trust them because they are made by the same people who make post- it notes! These guys are geniuses!)
I do not even attempt to take them off unless the edges are frayed.
Also another product that I trust very much is grapefruit seed extract… It is antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal like Colloidal Silver 500 ppm.
Both of these products work well. I have found that colloidal silver allows the bandage to stick better because the grapefruit seed extract by nature has some oil in it. The waterproof 3M bandage comes in a lot of different varieties. My favorite is called Tegaderm because it is big and I can cut it to size. They also come in a box like regular Band-Aids in three different sizes (for your entertainment some of them even have pictures on them).
THE BOX MUST SAY 3M WATERPROOF TO KEEP WOUND SECURED.
Everyone is different some skin cannot take adhesive, in that situation, I would use no stick pads then use gauze to wrap around and secure the bandage on. Change 2x daily, using colloidal silver 500ppm each time.
ALL THE BEST! Remember proper wound care means less scars! Using these methods I have avoided scars 90% of the time!
DO SCARS EVER POSE A PROBLEM FOR THE FUTURE?
Yes, it is possible that they can become “active” again after months or years, and may need some additional attention. This is another reason why periodically getting your nutrition checked makes perfect sense. That way potential issues can be caught before the affect your health.
Scars! It is important to find out if you have any scars on your skin (including your scalp and in your mouth) that are active… If they are active they can cause your nervous system to go haywire!
Hi my name is Shannon and I have been observing scars and their effects on the nervous system for over 20 years. I do Nutrition Response Testing and find that scars can keep you from healing!
Scars can make your heart race out of control…interrupt your sleeping…cause you to wake up many times in one night.…negatively impact your digestion…. sometimes they can even impair your hearing, vision or flexibility!
Oh yes… scars can also throw a wrench in your process for weight loss or necessary weight gain!
Let me explain. Your skin is your largest organ and if not attended to it can be the cause of a lot of stress. This is because as mentioned earlier, our skin is actually an Organ!!! We take our skin for granted because we can see that it heals on the outside but what we don’t know is that it is not always completely healed the way that the body wants it to be healed! Unbeknownst to us, our body has its own ideas of what is “completely healed”.
Scars on the body can sometimes result in interference to the communication pathways from organs to the brain. It is estimated that about 80% of our sympathetic nerve fibers are in the skin. If these scars are acting as a roadblock to these communication pathways (think of an overturned semi-tractor backing up all lanes of a freeway), then health can be adversely affected by causing interference to properly function.
The meridian is the freeway of our body. When scars cross a meridian or lie along its course, the scar impacts the energy flow throughout that meridian. Even small scars (especially around the midline of the body) can have a weighty effect. C-section, episiotomy, circumcision, vasectomy scars, and even the navel are examples of scars in the midline that cross the midline of the body.
Holes in the body such as pierced navels, nose rings, pierced ears, and tongue rings can behave like scars. Navel rings almost always have a deleterious effect as they not only cross and disrupt the energy flow, but because they are metal, they can have an electromagnetic effect. Usually this jewelry must be removed and the piercing treated as a scar. Tattoos, stretch marks, and burns can also have this effect.
The security guard or gatekeeper of the body’s internal functioning are the adrenal glands. Adrenals should not be concerned with our skin unless we are bleeding out. Unfortunately even if we only have a cat scratch, the adrenal glands reaction has the same excitability as if we were in a sinking boat. It can seem so strange how over reactive the adrenal glands can be about a minor scratch! When the adrenals get the information that the skin has a scratch, it immediately throws them into a tizzy! They think that we are going to bleed out!
Therefore it is important to put a wound treatment on as soon as possible to secure the area. In turn, this action sends a message to the adrenals that we are not bleeding out. It is important to keep the wound covered until it is not active anymore.
Some scars are white while others are red or purple. As a scar heals, it will turn colors and then become close to our skin color again. Even old scars can usually become the color of our normal skin again. It is critical to rub your scars until such time that they become deactivated or you are well inside and out.
The process which I describe is the easiest way, probably the most affordable way and sometimes the only way to get your body to calm down enough to heal. Whether it is ringing in your ears or a back ache that just won’t stop, sometimes the only remedy that will work is rubbing your scars with organic sesame seed oil for four minutes each, twice a day.
SOME SCARS ACT CRAZY by sucking your healing energy up because they want to heal. So when they are treated, you can feel strange fireworks tingling all of your body. Don’t worry slow down and keep breathing you have just experienced stored energy being released. It will pass! Then be sure to stretch out where you felt the fireworks/tingling/electrical zinging.
If the scar is tender -just lay your hand on it and breathe. Once the scar is less tender then it is ready for treatment.
HOW TO RUB SCARS AWAY FOR FAST TRACK HEALING:
OR organic sesame oil
organic black currant seed oil
2 times a day, four minutes each.
(Organic oils are found in the cooking oil section in Sprouts & Mother’s – oils are sensitive to air so keep bottled and refrigerated)
Chinese cupping and Cold Laser therapy are two additional treatments for scars. Chinese cupping therapy is a favorite for helping scars that are keloided to flatten out. Cold Laser is a high intensity light (or energy) that operates at a specific frequency to increase the blood supply to the scar area. The increase in blood is used by the cells to facilitate the repair of the injured tissue. The application of 4-5 minutes to the scar may need to be repeated anywhere from 4 to 7 treatments.
It is estimated that the high quality oils and Chinese cupping alone will handle 50% of scar problems. Cold laser therapy will affect 70%. And the two applications combined will handle about 90% of scars. In a small number of cases, neural therapy may be necessary. This therapy injects the scar with a healing substance by needle.
