MANAGING BURNS

Managing Burns
Henceforth a selection of options that are available to you in consideration of the degree of burn you’ve experienced will be outlined. Once given the chance, there is no limit to what Nature can do in terms of regeneration of bodily tissue – including complete regeneration of third degree burns without scarring as profoundly demonstrated by the Amish healer, John W. Keim, through the application of his Burn & Wounds Ointment (link) and ample use of scalded burdock leaves wrapped around the skin.
First off, familiarize yourself with Aloe Vera, Burdock Leaf, and Burdock Root. Both aloe vera and the burdock plant are powerful rejuvenators of skin tissue.
Aloe Vera has splendid soothing, healing and skin renewing properties. It does have a drying effect, when taken internally, so it is not advised to ingest large quantities of it – however – applied topically, it is a superior tissue healer. Burdock leaves are high in calcium and supportive of kidney tissues. Burdock root is a powerful regenerator of the liver and a great blood cleanser.
It is recommended to always having a bottle of either of the following flower essences: (1) MOONSHINE YARROW; (2) EMERGENCY RELIEF; or (3) FIVE-FLOWER FORMULA.
… in the medicine cabinet, in order to mitigate acute stress responses (shocks) and trauma.

FIRST DEGREE BURNS

First degree burns generally result in redness of the epidermis (top layer) of the skin. Usually, the skin will feel warm and painful to the touch.
First degree burns include:
* Hot water burns
* Contact with hot stoves or ovens
* Sun burns
* Oral burn from hot food (especially soups)
* Etc.

Managing First Degree Burns:
You should start off with cooling down the burn with cold water, immediately.
This degree of burn is normally easy to remedy in a timely manner. Most often, the pain will subside on its own within one or two days. To speed up the process, one may apply fresh aloe vera gel to the affected area. See instructions for wrapping the skin with aloe vera further below.
Aloe vera baths are also superb, but requires a lot of aloe vera gel or juice, which most people don’t have access to in times of need.
Slippery elm baths are a good alternative to aloe vera baths, due to the anti-inflammatory properties and mucilaginous quality of the herb. If it’s only a small area that has been affected, you may mix some slippery elm powder with a little water until a paste-consistency is achieved, then apply it as a soothing poultice.
Raw honey can also be applied directly to the affected areas of mild burns.

Lavender oil (only the lavandula officinalis variety) is an excellent essential oil of which can be applied directly on the affected areas. This oil does not require to be diluted in a carrier oil. Combine it with aloe vera gel for extra regenerative power.
A Heal-All Tea baths is another excellent option. Written instructions can be found further below.
Jown W. Keim’s Burns & Wounds Ointment  is a powerful formula which is utilized for all degrees of burns. Although a formula of this potency is not necessary for mild burns, it’s still a great option, if you have it.
As part of an emergency kit, you can purchase and store Burnaid burn dressings.

SECOND DEGREE BURNS

Second degree burns are exemplified by red, blistering skin of which the epidermis (top layer) and dermis (second layer) have been affected. The person is usually in very significant pain, and may go into shock.
Second degree burns include:
* Burns from contact with hot liquid
* Burns from fire (open flames)
* Chemical
* Etc.

Managing Second Degree Burns:
You should start off with cooling down the burn with cold water, immediately.
Second degree burns are more serious but can very easily be managed at home in most cases. Be sure to keep a bottle of the aforementioned flower essences on hand in case the victim experiences shock. Keep in mind that the shock can occur several hours after the accident so it may be advisable to ingest the flower essence to avoid or mitigate this. Do NOT hesitate to seek professional assistance, if needed.
These are cases where aloe vera juice baths and wrapping the skin in fresh aloe vera, is highly recommended. See instructions further below on wrapping the skin.
As part of an emergency kit, you can purchase and store Burnaid burn dressings for use on first and second degree burns.
Alternatively, if you have burdock leaves, you may also wrap these around the skin. Tinctured burdock leaves can be taken internally, while burdock roots brewed to tea (and also tinctured) can be ingested as well.

THIRD DEGREE BURNS

Third degree burns are burns that have completely incinerated the layers of the skin. Any leftover skin from the burn will normally appear either black or white. The nerve endings in the area of where the most damage has been done will likely have been completely destroyed – meaning that the person may only experience pain in the adjacent areas. A person is very likely to go into shock from a third degree burn.
Third degree burns include:
* Burns from electricity
* Chemical (acid) burns
* Burns from fire (open flames)
* Etc.

Managing Third Degree Burns:
With burns of this severity, do NOT attempt to cool down with water.
With third degree burns an important decision must be made quickly. The victim is either going to go to the hospital emergency room, and be treated the medical way, or you immediately seek the professional assistance of a naturopathic physician, or herbalist, who knows how to properly deal with third degree burns and is able to help you.
You would be well advised to contact Robert Morse, N.D.’s Herbal Health Center at (941) 255-1979 as soon as possible.
Recovering from third degree burns, Nature’s way, requires extensive use of aloe vera juice baths, dressings of aloe vera or scalded burdock leaves, as well as ample consumption of tinctured burdock leaves and burdock root. The Burns & Wounds Ointment (link) is highly recommended. This combination of some of Nature’s finest skin rejuvenators can produce total recovery of the skin with zero scarring and comparatively minimal pain – and in most cases voiding the need for skin grafting – but requires your trust and faith in Nature which many people, unfortunately, may lack.

Allopathic treatment of third degree burns will produce a certain degree of recovery, but with extensive scarring. The procedures utilized (e.g. skin grafting) can be very painful, and ample amounts of pain killers and anesthetics, which in and of themselves can produce damaging effects, will have to be employed. This is the most uncomfortable and painful way of managing and recovering from third degree burns. But in most cases it’s the only option people have.

Aloe Vera Skin Wrapping
Acquire several fresh aloe vera leaves and follow the instructions outlined. 1) Cut the leaves at the base.
2) Slit the stalk horizontally, exposing the gelatinous interior.
3) Using the thickest, juiciest section for the burn, cut a piece large enough to completely cover the burn and its surrounding tissue.
4) Place the entire piece on the area (gel and peel, gel side toward the burn).
5) Cover the aloe with roller gauze and surgical tape to keep it firmly in place.
6) Leave on overnight or, if burn occurred early in the day, cut a fresh piece of aloe to make a new dressing and leave on overnight.
7) The remaining stalk of aloe may be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight.
8) In the morning, cut a new piece of the refrigerated aloe to make a fresh dressing.
9) Repeat applications twice a day until area is healed.
