Yesterday I sliced my hand to the bone. Well, my right index finger, really, which pretty well incapacitated my right hand. I mean right to the bone. Blood was pouring as if from a tap. I held it under water and could actually see blood gushing out with every pulse of my heart. I wrote that a knowledge of herb and mushroom lore saved me from a trip to the hospital. These are powerful ancient lores and I am going to share with you how it worked.
Immediately after cutting myself, I snagged two sprigs of yarrow on my way to the bathroom to rinse the wound. One sprig I quickly chewed up and swallowed. That thickens the blood and greatly increases its ability to coagulate. I rinsed the wound and chewed up the other sprig and pressed it directly onto the wound. Bleeding stopped in 10 seconds. How bad was it before I applied yarrow? There was a trail of drops all they way to the bathroom.
I left the yarrow on for an hour and once I felt it start to pinch (it will actually feel like it’s trying to pinch the wound closed) I rinsed it off. Then I sprayed the wound with iodine and drank a liter of chaga tea for the antibiotics, because I had cut myself with the hatchet I was using to butcher chickens and it had chicken blood on it. Chaga tea is rich with powerful antibiotics and antivirals and anti-carcinogens.
After it was dry I went to the yard, found a small, young leaf of plantain, chewed it up into a paste and pressed it onto the wound. This I packed in place and then I bandaged it. Plantain greatly accelerates healing.
How effective was this? Today, less than 24 hours later, I can type again, so you judge.
