Healing Home Remedies
Successful bed sore protection and healing needs internal and external solutions. Unfortunately, the treatments you read about on Medline, WebMD, Mayo Clinic and other “official” sites will focus on pharmaceutical solutions. These agencies are sponsored by and promote pharmaceutical products. You will not read about healing oils, vitamin and mineral supplements, ionized alkaline water and other safe and effective treatments. Native healers from around the globe and grandmothers have been healing the sick for thousands of generations before the AMA and the FDA came into existence.
Is it possible to find natural, safe products that both heal and protect against skin breakdown?
Yes, but a word of caution…
you must do your own research and only purchase goods from reputable sources. Here is a summary of great products you may consider.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree Oil is Nature’s disinfectant. And not just for the body, but for many household uses. This means you can stop buying wipes and sprays that contain bleach or chemicals that warn you to wipe down food preparation areas after using the product.
If you do not own a water ionizer that produces acid water for cleaning and sterilizing, Tea Tree Oil is your next best bet.
Use a few drops in purified water to clean your patient’s delicate skin. Download a simple formula that is a safe and effective skin cleanser.
Eat clean food
Change your patient’s diet to organic produce and grass-fed (or wild caught fish) meat and eggs. Buy fresh vegetables and fruit when possible. If fresh is not available buy frozen produce. Choose lean, minimally processed meats, organic eggs, chicken and fish. Prepare meals simply, lightly steaming vegetables and leaving out heavy sauces.
If your patient is unable to eat and has a G or J tube, choose an organic enteral feeding formula. Fuctional Formularies has a few organic foods to choose from. They are Medicare approved with a letter from your doctor.
To fill any gaps in the nutritional needs of your patient, consider giving him a quality vitamin and mineral supplement that is made in an FDA-approved lab in the United States. These supplements will be more potent and bio-available for the patient than a supplement purchased at a mega-mart for the cheapest price.
Vitamin C and Vitamin D3 are both excellent for building and maintaining immune system health. Vitamin D3 is safe up to 10,000 IUs per day. Use drops and put under the tongue for best absorption. Vitamin C can be taken in divided doses during the day. Generally, between 500 and 1,000 mg is a well-tolerated dosage.
Ionized Alkaline Water
Water becomes ionized when it flows across electrodes and either gains or loses an electron. The water then becomes either positively charged (acidic) or negatively charged (alkaline). The electrodes are a key component in a water ionizer machine.
Alkaline water is rich in antioxidants that hunt down cell-damaging free radicals and destroy them. Free radicals attack your nerve tissue, brain tissue and cell walls, accelerating the aging process and age-related disease.
Your skin is naturally acid, ranging between 4.5 and 5.5 pH, so using a mildly acidic water can optimize the natural balance of your skin’s “mantle”. This mantle is a thin barrier that protects your skin (and you!) from viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants. This is the reason mildly acidic water is helpful to patients at risk of or suffering from bed sores and babies from diaper rash.
Natto is a fermented soy product popular in Japan and is the reason why cardiovascular disease in Japan is very low. Natto reduces the fibrins in the blood to a level that allows your blood to clot naturally, but does not let dangerous clots form in the body. The risk of stroke from a blood clot is gone! The supplement is Nattokinase and it repairs damaged arteries, making them flexible and allows the heart to easily pump blood, and removes cholesterol buildup and calcium deposits from arterial walls. Unlike dangerous medications, Nattokinase cures atherosclerosis.
Blood clotting is a natural occurrence and usually a good thing. However, too much clotting and the body forms a clot that can travel to the heart, lungs or brain and cause death. Our blood contains fibrins that create the clotting effect. Think of them like tiny spider webs flowing throughout your body. The enzyme plasmin keeps the fibrin from growing out of control. Too much fibrin and the blood becomes thick and the heart must work harder to deliver blood to all regions of the body. Poor circulation becomes noticeable in the extremities first—tingling in the fingers and toes. And the risk of blood clots increases. With age, plasmin production begins to decline while fibrin production continues.
Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra has a great solution. He explains the power of Nattokinase as a superior, all natural supplement that reduces the number of fibrins in the blood. It also repairs damaged, ridged arterial walls (arteriosclerosis, which causes stiff and thick arteries) which allows the arteries to pump blood as they were intended to do. Blood pressure is reduced while circulation is increased to all areas of the body…even those tingling fingers and toes. Cholesterol buildup in the arteries is eliminated as are calcium deposits.

Curcumin has more than 700 proven health benefits documented in more than 8,000 research papers and clinical studies from around the world. Curcumin is an active ingredient in the spice turmeric and because it is a natural product, pharmaceutical companies cannot patent it nor make money selling it. In support of the pharmaceutical makers, the FDA continues to discourage the use of curcumin and denies any health benefit from using it.
Dr. Al Sears, an anti-aging specialist, travels the world searching for safe and effective products used by native cultures for centuries to cure hundreds of diseases. He created a powerful curcumin supplement that is bioavailable.
