Accelerate wound healing Safely and effectively

One of the major problems with being diabetic is how slowly any wound heals. Initially I accepted this as everyone, including the hospitals told me it was a known problem, without a solution.

I had a major operation on my foot recently due to Charcot Foot, in which various bones were re-assembled in a better order, but it left me with a very large wound which was reluctant to heal.

My wife was chatting with a retired senior nurse, who like me had a lot of faith in very old fashioned herbal remedies and she gave me a fool proof formula that would help rapidly.

By now you will be thinking “Oh no another crackpot remedy with no chance of working”, but give it a try, you have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Now follow the formula exactly and do not be tempted to shortcut, otherwise it will not work.

Take 4 unwaxed plump lemons and zest each of them. This means only the yellow zest not the white pith which has no value.

Juice each lemon with a hand juicer and add to the zest. Do not use proprietary lemon juice only the juice from the lemons you are working with.

Pour the zest and juice into a plastic beaker with a lock top. Add about 25% bottled water (can be fizzy or still, but not tap water which has too many added chemicals) then add about teaspoon of honey to take the bite out of the raw juice. Shake really well to mix everything thoroughly. With the top locked it will keep well in the fridge.

Divide into 4 portions and drink one each day, preferably downing in one go as this equates to one lemon per dose.

Now how does it work ? The short answer is no one knows. I worked with essential oils for decades and know the zest contains upwards of a dozen different essential oils any one or combination of which can be the active agent.

We may not know exactly how it works but we do know it is highly effective.

I was talking about this to my dentist, who was really interested but he did suggest you drink it through a straw to prevent the acid eroding the tooth enamel.

With my foot after 2 months of constantly changing dressings and no weight bearing I tried the lemon remedy with no great confidence. On my second visit to the foot specialist a couple of weeks later they took one look and said “Wow what have you been doing”. Three weeks down the line it is almost completely healed.

As a bonus I have also found that my stoma, after seven years, has stopped bleeding and my skin has improved enormously.

The foot specialist is now unofficially recommending the treatment to patients with difficult wounds.

It’s a bit of a pain preparing it and zesting lemons but the benefits are astonishing, but as I said don’t try and shortcut it otherwise you are wasting your time.

Dear teaches12345

Hopefully your friend will find it helps. My huge wound has now closed completely with no more bleeding. I'm on the verge of being discharged by the hospital after 6 months and all the healing has taken place in the last 3/4 weeks after using the lemon.

kind regards Peter
