Many of the herbs that are available to the general population are beneficial to our health and well-being. In some cases these herbs are useful in preventing illness and in other instances they are useful in helping promote quick and efficient healing of our bodies. Consider the use of holistic medicine in combination with your doctors’ medical advice when suffering with everything from arthritis and broken bones to tendonitis and puncture wounds.
Cayenne Essential Oil – Cayenne essential oil is a natural pain reliever and works to effectively heal bones. It can be used straight from the bottle or combined 50/50 with either olive oil or coconut oil. It is then applied to the skin on the reflex area that coincides with the break of the bone.
Lavender Oil – Lavender essential oil is effective in treating skin lacerations and other flesh wounds including dry skin, rashes and eczema.
Wintergreen Oil – Wintergreen oil offers a sweet and minty scent. It is also a favorite flavoring for many products. It is beneficial to the muscles as well as being an excellent way to soothe tension. Wintergreen oil promotes healing, soothes pain and is useful when used under the tongue to help alleviate the pain associated with childbirth.
A combination of Lobelia, oat straw, comfrey and horsetail, when taken as a tea provides the bones, arteries and nerves with the organic calcium that is essential in healing.
Vitamin D – Vitamin D works to speed up the healing process.
Comfrey – Comfrey heals the body at a cellular level. This ingredient creates new cells. Comfrey quickly heals wounds including bruises, sprains, burns and cuts. To improve its results, use in combination with Goldenseal or other antibacterial herbs.
Horsetail Grass– Horsetail grass contains silica which easily converts to calcium in the body. This herb not only provides calcium that is essential for bones and teeth, but also helps ensure healthy eyes and skin, eases cramps and helps ensure that pregnancies are successful.
Anytime a bone is broken, it is best to start with a cast or a splint before using any of these holistic approaches. This will allow the bone to be properly set by your physician.
