Diabetic Leg Ulcers: Home Remedies to Heal Leg Sores

Hydrogen Peroxide and Testosterone

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn. ) on 08/06/2014

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.

Does this also help with the swelling of the leg and foot?

When you put the peroxide on the ulcer wound, then you do the mix of the oil and cayenne pepper, massage the leg, do you put something else on the wound and cover for during the day when you are working? Can you please tell me What I need to do and get to heal my wound. Thank you.

Ozone Prevents Amputation. Testimonial from Dom Muras, a diabetic

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.

My husband developed non-healing sores (but not dangerous) on his leg near the ankle.They kept on getting bigger and were there for about a half year. He also had a bit of sugar in his blood. After going to doctors and trying many things, "Une boot wraps" is what helped heal the sores. Using these wraps was very painful the first few weeks, but they worked.

At the same time, someone mentioned seeing in a book*, a fasting program, that helps heal such sores. The Health food stores didn't have the book and the fasting program seemed hard. Other fasting programs also seemed to be a possibility. Since the sores healed before the books were bought, none of the fasting programs were attempted.

Recently, after getting a knock on the foot, the problem started to come back. There were two sores that were getting bigger. Instead of a fast, we (a few members of the family) began a mostly raw food cleansing program, eating raw fruit and vegetables throughout the day (after the first week, including figs and nuts and seeds) and eating one warm, cooked meal in the evening. The cooked meal being very simply, grilled fish and vegetable soup or chicken soup with cooked chicken and vegetables, including carrots, celery, onions, garlic, parsley root, sweet potato, asparagus and so on. No flour or corn starch was used in the soup to thicken it and no oils. Sometimes a cooked potato was included. Bread and grain flour products were also avoided. Milk and hard cheese was avoided. Unheated, unrefined olive oil was used occasionally on salads or other vegetables. This was meant to be a cleansing program, easier than a fast but cleansing nevertheless. One day a week, a variety of regular foods, including Challah, was eaten in moderation. At this point, several weeks into the program my husbands sores are almost completely gone, the sugar is completely gone, his heart feels stronger and he is able to walk more easily and faster. Thank you for letting me share this.

I couldn't tolerate the Une boot wrapping. It enlarged my first ulcer by abut six hundred percent just from the pressure and rubbing. I had to take over the case myself and worked on this thing for most of a year. I used poltices of bentonite clay and activated charcoal to clean it up and then used Manuka honey, Amerigel, bismuth saturated gauze and best of all...tamanu oil to heal the openings in the skin that did not want to close.

Hello Fellow Sufferers,

My senior Partner (She who must be obeyed) suffered from a leg ulcer for the very first time in her life recently. These things are really serious and cause extreme, debilitating pain. She is not diabetic and thinks that "something" bit her whilst working outside the house and standing on the decking.

There is a narrow gap between the top of a concrete platform and the underside of the wooden decking that has gaps between the boards. We know that some "critters" "lurk" down there, such as cockroaches and skinks (a very small native lizard) but I am wondering if one or more white-tailed spiders may have found their way there. These things are a recent Aussie import unfortunately, and are poisonous. Some people also experience additional complications after being bitten such as narc.... (whatever that flesh-eating bacteria is called?).

So... SWMBO told me that she felt this painful bite and then it quickly subsided and nothing much happened until many days later when the bite site became red and inflamed and the pain started. Then the ulcer appeared.

She was in a lot of bother and strife and attended the doctor's surgery. They prescribed an application of Mupirocin (Bactroban) as well as a Silver covering (Hydrofilm).

This was to be covered with a sterile pad and then covered again with a bandage, which she was told to keep on and DRY for four days, at which time she should change the dressing and repeat.

This worked (after a loong time)!!

I see other posters have also sung the praises of SILVER, so there you go.

Cheers from Down Under

Stop! I have the answer for leg ulcers. I suffered miserably with non-healing leg ulcers. My doctor gave up, the hospital clinic gave up, a home health nurse who had specialized in leg ulcers started applying to my leg _____ silver pads. They did hurt a little at first... But the ulcers healed. I used to cry up until the wee hours of the night due to the pain, I was even taking strong paid medication but it stopped working. These dressings healed my entire right leg that was entirely ate up with leg ulcers. Please check out this product. You can even email me... I'm a real person and I'm not selling a product. Please, stop suffering. Leg ulcers are the worse pain in the entire world.

Julia Schoepick devotes an entire chapter of her book, "Honest Medicine, " to Silverlon. Her husband was suffering with a brain surgery scar that would not heal until she brought some Silverlon in to put on it, and the next day it was finally starting to heal. I think her website is www.honestmedicine.com. I'm not sure where you can get some but she may be able to answer that. Good luck!

If you can't find the silver pads you might want to try colloidal silver topically. You might also be interested in a homeopathic mixture that promotes healing called Traumeel. I gave some to my neighbor when she had a dog bite that wasn't healing and the results were amazing. You could literally see a day to day change in the bruising and healing of the wound.

Here is the link to Silverlon. You can read more about it in Julia Schopick's book, "Honest Medicine." Her husband's doctors had been trying to heal his head from repeated brain surgeries for over 8 months without success, and she found out about Silverlon and brought some into the hospital for him. He skin was healed over night. Best wishes. http://www.silverlon.com/silverlon-us

Please remember folks that IF you use Colloidal Silver in any form other than with water, it will deteriorate in 10 days to 2 weeks. That being said, I will never forget how well silver nitrate salve worked on my mother's near gangrene leg; the hole, the sore was brown all around.

Try using a paste of sugar and antibiotic ointment on leg sores that will not heal! Bacteria will not grow in sugar and it will heal the sore fast!

Try this treatment for a DIABETIC ULCER that refuses to heal: Take a piece of gauze large enough to encircle the ulcer site and liberally coat it with vaseline, roll the gauze into a cigarette-like roll configuration and encircle the ulcer. This sticky-treated gauze is used to make a "dam" around the wound. Next, fill the inside of the gauze encirclement with ordinary table sugar about 1/4" deep, place a covering of gauze over the sugar and the encircling sticky gauze and then gently bandage over the wound area. The sugar will accelerate the healing of the wound, absorb the drainage, and prevent infection. I believe you will like the results. It sounds simple--and it is, but it works. Honey can be substituted for the table sugar, but some folks find it to be more messy to use than sugar; however, it's your call. The entire dressing will need to be changed every 2-3 days.

Dear Nara,

People apply Tamanu Oil straight to wounds. I used it on my daughter this week for a skin irritation and the results were pretty impressive. It was my first experience with it.

Tamanu is native to Malaysia, so you should be able to find it where you live, but it may be called something else. This website has some information and includes some alternate names.

https://www.mountainroseherbs.com/learn/oilprofile/tamanu.php

Activated charcoal is also really good for diabetic leg ulcers. Here are some encouraging stories.

http://www.charcoalremedies.com/diabetic_ulcers

Both of these remedies could be used together.

Wounds will heal best if you are also getting plenty of water, have a nutritious diet, and your body is eliminating regularly. If you would be able to add fresh vegetable juice, like carrot, to your diet, that would be very helpful.

I hope you are able to get your ulcers healed soon!

I am using tamanu oil to finish healing up a leg ulcer that has taken nine months to heal. This oil is the best thing I have used I think. Everything had its place. I used poultices of activated charcoal and also bentonite clay when the staph infection was active. I used everything from oxygenated olive oil to Amerigel, coconut oil, bismuth impregnated gauze, Manuka honey (very strong and effective on infection)... but the oil seems to be bringing it all to a nice end.

The only thing I did not use was colloidal silver. I just never got around to it and had a hard time seeing the use of it.

I had leg ulcers but now healed. Healing left me with three new scars with new skin a white color, like baby skin. No problem, very happy I healed. But skin around some of the area on my ankle is discolored and looks like a heavy tan….I still put lotions to moisturize the area.

When healing, I put on a lot of Vitamin E oil which I have had tremendous success over the years with several scars….that disappeared. I am going to use Vitamin E oil again. I have been using 100% aloe vera oil lately. I am hoping the discoloring will fade in time. Any suggestions? will be much appreciated….Harv

HI U HARVEY,,,,,,,,,,,,

my experience is that wounds that do not heal are due to lack of oxygen or circulation. You can do a Hydrogen Peroxide IV or to start...... spread ozonated oil on the wound. Go with the best first and that is the IV.
