7 stitches on the top of my hand, what I would call a deep laceration. They told me dog bites always get infected. (The one I got on my leg two weeks ago, didn't. Ha! But it was not so deep. Questions? ;-/ ) I've been told several times before I needed Antibiotics or horrible things would happen, and I've always handled it with a lot of raw garlic. But this bite was not looking good, and not progressing well. I was putting raw garlic in my food, sipping blended ACV, honey, garlic drink in water, started on GSE, began treating topically with tea tree, then honey mixed with GSE, cold water plunging, later started soaking in Epsom Salts as per the vet (smarter than a regular doc, no doubt).
If I slacked off, it went downhill fast. As long as I kept a stream of garlic going in, I felt stronger, otherwise I felt sick, like my whole body was fighting the infection. Hand was very swollen and red on top since the bandages came off, two steps forward, one back, or three back.--No I am not recommending this! Take your Antibiotics , I won't judge you!--But finally I thought of my ancient bottles of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement and activator, started applying it last night, and I can open my hand, it doesn't look like a bloated corpse with rigor mortis (after cold plunging), or angry red. Still red and swollen around the wound, but localized, and shrinking with every application, which I might do as much as every hour. Hey, I'm typing with two hands!(Probably shouldn't be.) Incredible. I was definitely out of my depth on this one, but it looks like Miracle-Mineral-Supplement saved the day, and my gut flora, from a round of Antibiotics . Stitches come out Friday, today's Tuesday already, so hopefully I'm on track.
