Natural Remedies for Boils

I know that a lot of folks may think this is kind of crazy, but after reading all of the treatments that people posted for boils, one treatment that stood out was from the Bible. A fig poltice for boils (Hezikiah - 2Kings: 20:7)

I was desperate. I had what looked at first like a small pimple start next to my anal area that, after a few days, grew into a roaring, angry, large hard boil. This wasn't the first time I had been thru this. I had one in my armpit that had to be lanced when I was 17 years old, and one in the same general area as this one 2 years after my last daughter was born (that was 17 years ago - she is 19 now and in college).

Embarrased? OMG - You bet! Nothing worse than having to go to your doctor to have a boil lanced in the most embarrassing place you can imagine! I did NOT want to have to go thru that again! I scoured the Internet looking for remedies. Earth Clinic is a Godsend!

Someone had posted that in Biblical times they had suffered with boils and that God had instructed that figs be used for 3 days.

I'm here to say - it works!

Never in my wildest dreams did I EVER think I would place a slice of a raw fig over my boil. But I was desperate and can honestly tell you it works! It did take more than 3 days because I could only use the fig at night time. But today - the boil is just a small raised dot that causes me no pain and if it wasn't for the fact that I am OCD about keeping it covered and clean - I wouldn't even know it was there!

I'm posting because I prayed that God would bless me as he did Hezikiah, and that if He did, I would share my experience with others.

So please, if you are at your wits end - have tried it all and nothing is helping - give Gods remedy a try. I know it sounds crazy - but I am living proof that it works!

I recently have battled with boils. My mother told me about boils mentioned in the bible and how God told someone to treat boils with Fig. I have been eating Fig and taking the seeds out and putting the skin of the Fig under a bandaid. It seemed to work for me so far. They aren't totally gone, but they don't seem to be so bad. I also wipe the area with Wet Wipes. Have been taking Echinacea, Zinc, Vitamin C.with Ester. The highest dose possible. And also putting Hibiclense on and letting it stay on my skin for 15 min. before taking a shower. I am allergic to some of the antibiotics given to me and the others didn't work. Like I said so far this works better than anything else I've tried. Hope this helps. Going to try turmeric along with everything else. SS
