Candied ginger helped my husband's sciatica so well (thanks EC!) that I want to share my family's secret "weapon" against all skin cuts - they heal faster and do not leave scars! Even those initially neglected that got infected. I wash the wound with fresh broccoli juice. I just grate some stems and squeeze juice over wound. Sometimes I keep the grated broccoli there longer. Then I forget it. Has worked thousand of times so far. Never failed.
