Sorry to my readers for my long hiatus. I was was getting a little discouraged trying to get things set up the way I wanted to and then life just seemed to get in the way and a year and a half passed by in a blur. However, I never stopped collecting more health stories to tell, in fact I have so many now it is overwhelming, but I don’t want to forget the things I have learned and if I don’t record them now I know I will forget them. So this first one is a short simple one and it is one I learned a long time ago and had forgotten until my confidence in running a half marathon made me stupidly dauntless in running down a mountain where my coordination failed. After limping home holding a bleeding scraped arm and hand and hurting all over after having scrubbed and disinfected with hydrogen peroxide, I wished fervently I could find someway to stop the pain. I tried aspirin, Tylenol and antibiotic cream but nothing seemed to relieve the pain. Then after a sleepless night I remembered a coworker I had had many years ago that had been in a motorcycle accident without a helmet. He had used pure Aloe Vera on his face day and night and had come out completely scar free. I also remembered I had done the same thing for my daughter when she was run over by a 4 wheeler and had road rash all over her body. She also was mostly scar free, only 2 small scars were left on her arm and knee. So, I pulled out my Aloe Vera and smothered my scrapes, now I had forgotten that at first it can sting a little bit but the soothing relief spread instantly down my arm and I have not really been bothered with it since. Oh, my arm is still tender and I am careful not to bump it but the relief from the pain I felt was immediate and truly dramatic.
If you haven’t ever used pure Aloe Vera I highly recommend it, it has been used for burns with amazing results for years and now you can add relief from road rash to it’s list of benefits. I would recommend buying it from a health food store but if you can’t find one look for bottles in regular stores that say 100% Aloe Vera, they have other ingredients but they can still be helpful.
Something more to think about.
