One of the best remedies to heal dangerous leg ulcers happens to be activated charcoal. Sprinkling activated charcoal (mixed with water) directly onto an ulcer will start the healing process immediately.
My companion had a very bad ulcerated leg, we believe the cauce was from a fall that damaged his ankle, resulting in a plate and several screws years ago. It happened so fast at a time when he very busy having a large barn being constructed. His calf swelled to 2-3 times normal size in a day, and the skin became open and raw, about the size of a tennis ball. We couldn't get in to see our naturopath until the next day, so we found info on the internet about charcoal/flax poultice.
I was covering a large area, so I took 16'' x12" piece of clean cotton sheet, mixed 1/3 cup food grade activated charcoal with 1/2 cup ground flax seed and enough water for paste that you can spread on the cotton cloth. I would take that and wrap it around his calf. Then wrap saran wrap around that, and then wrap an ace bandage around that and pin it on for the night, 8 hours. You don't want it exposed to air, or it dries out. It takes the pain away in about 20 min. You can do it 3 times daily, but leave time to air out. And Keep the area Very clean, spray peroxide often.
We did this daily for 5-6 months. At first it drained liquid out, a LOT of liquid out. After about 4 months he showed his Dr. They panicked, did a lot of tests, nuclear bone scan and others, sent him to specialist. That Dr. came in looked at the calf, felt the leg, went back out checked tests, came back in, felt the leg for 10 min. checking for temp. We told him what we we're doing, he said, "did a lot of stuff drain out?" I said, "oh ya", he said the leg has no infection or problem he could find. After a total of 5 months we stopped the wraps, and the skin started peeling off, layer after layer... And every so often it gets to acting up, and he'll do another poultice. For the most part he only had poultice on at night.
I used the charcoal early on in the process of healing my leg sores. It did clean them up very nicely and then I was able to go on to things like the tamanu oil to stimulate cell growth.
After using very strong corticosteroid on my infected leg ulcers, my skin became thin and easily damaged, not to mention, it is more prone to infection (impetigo). I started applying fresh aloe vera gel from a cut leaf and I see it slowly regenerates.
I have a new leg uler which developed after a bleed. It is on my interior ankle. Extremely painful. Can feel the swelling where the damage was done. I was told of a method using bread, bicarbonate of soda on the bread and water which makes the paste bubble. Does anyone know of this method. Surelly there is some native bush remedy out there. Indigenous people have cures for all their needs which they have used for years. Modern wound clinics just put on a bandage and say see you nexst week. One year later you are still doing the same thing.

I have used Colloidal Silver to disinfect leg ulcers with a spray, use one or twice daily. Use Serreptase once or twice a day of 40,000 to 80,000. This will close the emerging ulcers and established ulcers. A white cream made with colloidal silver for dressing the leg ulcers and surrounding the ulcers will heal these wounds.
My 80 year old mother had horrible looking sores on her legs. She asked me to pick up some everclear.(190 Proof). I was skeptical but she had heard of it somewhere and within two days her legs And foot looked better than they had for months and it did not BURN!!?? We just poured it over her legs first then we patted with washrag. I was amazed but it worked.

Do NOT use honey for skin ulcers - despite the claims that bacteria can not grow in honey, using it for a leg ulcer gave me a horrendous infection that swelled my legs to the size of telegraph poles, after which I lost all of the skin below my knee. Two years later the original leg ulcer still hasn't healed. Honey can apparently carry heat resistant spores for some really nasty diseases!
My father had a large leg ulcer which he had for some years. I bought him some manuka honey which he put on the ulcer everyday. It completely cured the ulcer and has left no trace of a scar. This took 6 months.
Hello, My name is Omar, and I am from Saudi Arabia. First of all I'd like to express my appreciation for such valuable rich site. What I want to share with you is about using honey on the skin of a diabetic. As you know, an injury could be very fatal for a diabetic. My father developed a very late stage of diabetes. Once he had an injury in his hand, and the wound developed very badly. The doctor put him under a very strict diet with daily dressing for the wound, by water and salt. We know from our relegion that Honey is a cure, in general, and for specific health problems like dierea. So we tried to apply honey, after washing the wound and surrounding area with water and salt, on the wound(externally on the skin) that had 1.5 cm height full of buzz. We did this every day, continously for 10 or 15 days. We were amazed to see the wound noticably decreased in height and buzz material started to disappear from the first day of application. The wound was completely healed with no scars or a trace that there was a wound in that area.Thank you for readig and hope this was useful. Omar, Saudi Arabia.

I had a leg ulcer about the size of a half dollar with a deep crader that I been battling a year. The doctors in the US could do nothing, but my wife and I started eating about 4 horse chestnuts a day, and within a month it cleared up. If you look online it says they are hazardous, but if you cook them they are edible. Now you can buy them in a powder form, and add to juice, or use creams on your legs with horse chestnuts. We found out Europe uses them for ulcers, venous disease, varicose veins, and Hemorrhoid.
HI U GOD FEARING PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , , , ,
Got diabetes myself and know this problem is coming one of these days . I know personally that Hydrogen Peroxide IV has cured this problem for several people in my chelation group.
One of my medical news letters had another remedy. This doctor healed his dad's leg ulcer by rubbing natural testosterone directly into the wound. He also gave him injectable testosterone . His stage 4 ulcer , which went to the bone, was healed in 6 weeks. I have no clue.
Was I a nice person this time or not?

My husband had really bad ulcers on his lower leg, which had lasted about 9 months. Every evening, he was in so much pain, he couldn't sleep. He tried every remedy - both natural and allopathic - that he could think of, with only minor improvement. People kept commenting that perhaps he was diabetic, but he refused to go and get tested. Thinking along these lines, I devised a treatment for him, which we applied morning and night.
First, I applied a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide to the actual ulcer. (It fizzes and foams for a minute or so).
Then I mixed a small amount (maybe 2 tablespoons) of extra virgin coconut oil with a pinch of cayenne pepper, and massaged the entire leg with it, especially the foot. (Be sure not to massage it onto the actual ulcer, as it will sting like mad! ). The idea behind this is to bring circulation, warmth and blood flow to the limb, to speed up healing.
Within a couple of days we could see an improvement. The ulcers were noticeably smaller. It took about 2 - 3 weeks for all the ulcers to be completely healed over.

My friend, Dom Muras, used the bagging technique with Ozone (O3) on his painful foot which was turning black starting with the toes.30 minutes twice per day with O3 hose inserted in plastic bag tied loosely around foot.He used very warm water first to open pores. Seemed to get worse at first -- But no pain from O3 therapy.Took 3 weeks to start showing visible results. Took two months to return foot color to normal. He used the portable O3 generator from Del Industries (DEL ZO 103)
Diabetic Avoids Leg Amputation
Around the 1st of January 2002, Mr. Gene Crockett, an electrical engineer, came to see Dr. Cathryn Kolker (a chiropractor inIrving). He came for chiropractic care but when he showed her the large oozing ulcers on his legs she suggested that he try ozone therapy. He said that his medical doctors could offer no solution except amputation..
His legs were both swollen. At first they broke out in blisters, which broke open and grew to about 2 inches in diameter oozing puss, which dripped down his legs.
He used a portable ozone generator from Del Industries designed for water purifying. Following Dr. Kolker's directions he put a large plastic bag around his legs one at a time and inserted the ozone hose. He did this twice a day for about 30 minutes.
In 3 to 4 days his ulcers stopped oozing and within a week they had shrunk to less than an inch in diameter. By the end of January the swelling of his legs had reduced substantially and his ulcers were almost gone.
He used the portable O3 generator from Del Industries (DEL ZO 103)
NOTE: Ozone is used in German and Swiss clinics to cure gangrene.
