August 29th, 2012Lessons Learned From Two Emergencies
by Anita Call, MH, Dip.H.Ir.
The first emergency happened to me. I sliced open my thumb with a knife. The wound was fairly deep and bled quite a bit. I called a couple of my children to go and find me some herbs and essential oils in my bedroom. Needless to say, they couldn’t find the items I needed for my wound. I bandaged my thumb firmly to stop the bleeding, and went to look for the items myself. I found the items needed to prevent infection and put them into the wound. X-Ceptic and Essential oils are great to prevent infection. I began putting on the Beauty Facial Cream several times a day (or use the Complete Tissue and Bone Ointment) and within ten days the wound was completely healed with no scar.
Dr. Christopher has shared several accounts of using plantain to heal. He states “We had a man come to us for help who had blood poisoning. Red streaks were running up his arm; he had a large lump under the arm pit, and he was in extreme pain. His fingers were swollen so large that his hands were spread wide. We simply bruised some leaves of the plantain herb, made them into a poultice and applied it over the entire arm. Within twenty-four hours the fingers were normal, the lump was gone, and the tell-tale red line had entirely disappeared. The herb had drawn the poison completely out.” [SNH p.54]
The lesson learned from these two experiences is to always have ready an Herbal First Aid Kit along with the book, Herbs to the Rescue by Kurt King. When there is an emergency, we can be prepared to respond quickly instead of scrambling around looking for the items needed to help in the emergency. My children will be able to find the kit and use it. We will be ready for whatever emergency may come our way!
