Have you healed yourself? What I mean is, have you ever used what you have learned on-line or via reading and been able to heal what ails you? I am on trial #2 of trying to heal myself without medical intervention. I know what it is and the normal cure is to go the Doctor, get some antibiotics and medicinal cream. But if this was post- SHTF, there would not be doctors or I would not be able to afford them so I am trying to cure this on my own. Yes, some would say do not be stupid just go to the Drs but I am in this survival thing to win and thrive. I have a skin condition so it is not life threatening, I know that. Currently I have eliminated all manufactured soaps and lotions. After trying a couple of different natural suggestions (coconut oil- fail, teatree oil- nope, and apple cider vinegar- that hurt), I am just using water and putting colloidal silver on the area. Things have stopped spreading and are drying but not yet healed. In a few days if not cured, I will try true from the plant aloe. Knowing how to treat things and administer your own medical treatment is worthwhile knowledge. When we have illnesses in our family, I will research and even print off natural healing methods or old-fashion remedies. We try many of them in our home but often we are forced to seek medical care. Some people are fortunate to have nurses or doctors in their family but I do not. Some of the info on the internet is garbage so these trials of trying to heal myself are helping me to eliminate the crap resources. *** please note: I am not promoting that people do not seek medical help.
