Wanda Knows First-Aid

by Wanda H.

March 2006

I just wanted to thank you for your quality products. I notice that your herbs are much fresher than those I get elsewhere and much more economical.

Two items I now keep in my first aid kit are the Plantain leaf and Bentonite clay.

My 5-year-old burned his finger while camping. I didn't have any hot water handy to soften the Plantain leaf, so I just put some in my mouth and chewed until soft. It wasn't very sterile, but I applied the softened leaves under a bandage. Immediately, he looked at me with surprised relief, "It doesn't hurt any more!" The finger didn't blister, and he discarded the bandage the next day.

I keep a ziplock bag with about a tablespoon or so of the Bentonite clay mixed with distilled water. Whenever someone gets a festered place, pimple, infected sore, etc., I plaster some of the prepared clay onto the area and cover with a bandage. The clay draws out any infection and speeds healing. This works well for infected paper cuts on hands as it provides a protective covering for the area and keeps it from painfully breaking open before it has time to mend.

Thank you again for all you do.

I am a Registered Nurse, and have always believed that there was a better way to treat my children. My husband and I have always been very leery of antibiotics because I have seen and knew the overuse of them. You have given me a wonderful way to treat my family and to show them I love them. I am just now getting started and the first thing I did was to treat my 5yr old's sore throat with garlic "tea". She only drank a little (because she said it tasted bad) before bed. When she woke up the next morning, her sore throat was GONE!!!!! Again, thank you so much!! God Bless You.

Did You Know?

The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
