    Default apitherpy for foot ulcer and toe ulcer

    Hi Everybody,
    My dad has an ulcer on the side of the foot and third toe. He is going to the wound doctor; one doctor says the ulcers are arterial. The other doctor is much more hopeful. The wound doctor says ordinary honey is dangerous and the only safe honey is medi-honey. The current treatment is betadine with a dry dressing and the goal is status quo. The wound doctor says honey will not work with this problem. Of course we have used our own honey to treat skin tears.. with great results. Has anybody used honey for ulcers?
    Thanks so much,
    Linn

    This is a bad idea.
    Don't put honey on foot ulcers.
    Listen to the doctor.

    Hey linn,
    At our May Beekeepers meeting we had a guest speaker Dr. Frank Steel from Valdese, NC. He is a General Surgeon and wound specialist. He has had great success treating osteomyelitis. These are the types of wounds a lot of diabetics have. He started out using our local sourwood honey but now uses medihoney which is from New Zealand. It is pure unpasteurized honey, just packaged for medical use. It is approved for a dressing but not as a prescription. He sometimes uses polarized light with the honey to help healing.
    I might should add that osteomyelitis are wounds which are deep infection in the bone or tendon without blood flow and or a lack of oxygen.

    My sister has problems with her feet often. She has used honey with some success, but there are different types of wounds and many of her wounds need to keep dry and use a different type of pack all together. I would love to say that honey heals all wounds but it isn't so. Listen to your doctor.

    Hi Everybody,
    Thank-you for replying to my thread, My dad saw a doctor today and he will get a referral to a vascular surgeon. Perhaps the vascular surgeon will be able to open up the blockage and increase blood flow to the foot. We will listen to the doctor on this one, and use betadine and a dry dressing on the foot and toe. We also have used honey with great sucess on other types of wounds like abrasions , a skin tear on the hand .... I think it is also good to eat a little honey every day.

    Thanks again,
    Linn

    I would get a opinion from a doctor who is not afraid of natural remedies. I HAD osteomyelitis and got rid of it trough natural remedies including apitherapy. My Surgeon, Doctor Kyle Jerey of Greenville SC, put in his remarks "continue using natural remedies as directed." Referring to my homeopathic Doctor Roger Jaynes of Greenville SC who put me on Pleo Not, a naturally produced penicillin . I am deathly allergic to chemically produced penicillin. I was told by my dentist in 1983 that if I got a shot of penicillin I would be dead before I got to the door. I used bee stings, raw honey on the surgical wound and the antibiotics prescribed by Doctor Jerey, 4 in total all of which I was allergic to but the last I could tolerate. My last blood test showed infection levels better than normal. Doctor Jerey was elated and called me twice to tell me how pleased he was. He daid he never saw anyone get rid of Osteomyelitis so fast as many times you have it for the rest of your life! This worked for me honey is even mentioned as a remedy in the Bible as a wound dressing. Remember the Good Samaritan?

    Dear seamuswildflower,
    I am going to look up about Pleo Not. I am very grateful for your help. I went back and read the story of the good Samaritan. That was interesting about using the oil and wine as an ointment. We have been using raw honey as a dressing for various issues. Sometimes we mix up a little olive oil with a few drops of tea tree oil as an overall skin lotion. We are really grateful to The Lord for the bees. My dad is doing well. Thank-you for sharing about your treatment and your recovery. My mother Helen also had osteomyelitis.
    Thanks again,
    Linnea and Helen

    Hello! Thank you for this information. However I do not know yet how apitherapy is being done. Can you please let me know about it? I have many questions about it on many illnesses. I will ask you later. Thank you. Cristina

    I couldn't agree with you more, Seamus. There is no reason to avoid local raw honey. It has antiseptic/antibacterial properties.
