Re: Post op swelling and discomfort. Your experiences


All throughout history, honey has been used to treat/heal wounds, but in the second world war when Antibiotics were discovered/invented, the medical and pharmaceutical companies decided that honey should no longer be used (made it "old fashion") so that they could sell Antibiotics .

There is a disease that comes from hospitals these days called MRSA (it can resist even the strongest Antibiotic Methycillin). The U.K. hospitals have had alot of success with Manuka honey from New Zealand (specially strong for MRSA).

A clean washcloth that doesn't have any soap residue on it should help cover the honey you use. Don't use it too dry or it will just dry out the honey, spray the cloth with a little distilled water, but check the cloth often to make sure it's not causing inflammation or infection (maybe use soft flannel fabric with no dye and not bleached).

When heat builds up in the groin area and there is infection, the first 24 hours, the heat will help kill the infection, but when there's no infection, the heat is just overheating from the intestine. Leave/press a cold container to the skin to cool off (relaxing muscles, when heat is excessive).
