Thank you Grow Network and great advice on natural antibiotics
Thank you Marjorie Wildcraft for all the work you do and all the knowledge you and the amazing people part of this group contribute. The Home Medicine Summit was fantastic, I have learned so much from you and this wonderful community. I had a Crohn's attack this week to my face and muscles / sinews and it has been a rough one. No need for a Halloween mask basically and it has been hard to move my right hands and fingers at all and some other parts of my body too. It's like I went as "the Mummy" this year super low budget costume. Also, the disease acts systemically and so it is like having a very strange and serious kind of flu all over.
I used the aloe on some of my facial lesions and it works terrific thank you!!! I also used to some of the lesions on my face that felt a burning sensation some St. Johns Wort oil I made, as this has been used traditionally to treat burn type lesions and it worked amazing so I wanted to share this with you. Also Wound Honey worked tremendously. This is another one super easy to keep in your home medicine cabinet and actually won't spoil. Anyway, not only did these regimens work in a localized way, they also brought my entire system back to wellness and I can feel I'm kicking the attack now. Also, I kept eating pure bits of mushroom / porcini sea salt, may seem weird but my body craved it and I swear it helped.
Previously I had tried to use aloe with a Crohn's attack (internally last time) that I bought from the store and it hadn't worked at all. Now, I'm thinking, I don't even know that was really aloe, or, if it was, how much real aloe it actually contained. Now, I grow my own aloe and I literally want to grow it all over the house. I am thinking how much I have changed for the good largely due to the Grow Network. I also grow my own St. Johns Wort and want to really grow a lot of that too.
If anyone has aloe growing tips / experience in addition to growing St. Johns Wort I'd love to hear it. Thank you!
