     Antibiotics are killing the delicate flora in our intestine and outside. For most bleeding wounds or infection, the best first-aid medicine is turmeric. Here is a recipe for homemade paste that you can make a use.

  • 1 teaspoon organic turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon organic ghee
  • 1 pinch bhasma/ sacred ash or vibhooti
  • Place all the ingredients in a clean dish and mix well. Wash the affected area with warm salt water and apply the healing turmeric paste.
  • Deep wounds with massive infection will take sometime to heal. Keep washing and applying, especially at night. That will give you lot of relief in a just a couple of applications.
