Family sugar remedy tested for healing people’s wounds

handwoundA trial currently underway in Birmingham, England, is exploring the use of sugar to heal wounds. BBC news reports that Nurse Moses Murandu, originally of Zimbabwe, is running this trial on the basis of a traditional family treatment for wounds and is excited about the results so far. There are only 35 patients in this randomized, controlled trial who have received this treatment measure, but the trial is still in process. This method of wound healing is believed to be achieved by the sugar’s ability to halt microbial growth by removing water from the site of the wound. What other natural substances have you used or would you recommend to your patients for wound healing?
