How to treat burns most effectively limiting scarring and speeding up recovery time dramatically could all depend on whether you have pure aloe vera gel handy or not. Our mothers and fathers probably told us to put our burns under cool water. It gives us instant relief but doesn’t fasten healing time or reduce scarring.
As a matter of fact if you ask survivors of ancient civilazations such as the Native Americans about natural treatment of burns they will probably all introduce you to a mature aloe vera plant squeezing the healing gel out of a leaf. Native Americans also used aloe vera gel to protect their skin against insect bites
Aloe Vera and sunburns
We probably all know aloe vera gel best for its ability to soothe the symptoms of sunburn. Aloe Vera Gel contains over 200 natural compounds which speed up the healing of a sunburn. One reason why aloe vera promotes fast healing is the fact that it increases cell renewal. And since it has a cooling effect on the skin it calms down the burnt and hot skin. But Aloe Vera Gel isn’t just a remarkable natural remedy for sunburns. Even other types of burns can benefit from pure aloe vera gel.
If you are suffering from a sunburn, take some pure aloe vera gel, either out of the leaf of an aloe vera plant or out of a tube (high-quality-aloe-vera-gel) and rub it onto your skin. Apply it as often as you wish especially after the shower.
Aloe Vera and other burns
Any type of burn can be treated with pure aloe vera gel. Squeezing the gel out of a leaf and applying it gently on top of the skin can reduce the severity by at least one degree. Pure aloe vera gel contains over 200 active healing compounds including very important mucopolysaccharides. These mucopolysaccharides could possibly be the main reason why aloe vera gel speeds up the healing process and reduces scarring far better than any other natural plant or medicine out there. Aloe Vera Gel is also an anti-septic protecting the wound from infection. When applying pure aloe vera gel ontop of your burn, the gel seals off the injury site keeping foreign invadors out of the wound.
A study conducted with burn victims
During a study how to treat burns measuring pure aloe vera gel against vaseline gauze, 27 patients with partial thickness burn wounds participated. They were treated with pure aloe vera gel and the outcome was compared to burn victims treated with vaseline gauze. This revealed that the wounds treated with aloe vera gel had healed up in approximately 11 days while the wounds treated with vaseline gauze took 18 days. This study was conducted in 1995 in Bangkok, Thailand.
Did you know that…
If you cut off the leaf of an aloe vera plant you will notice how quickly the plant seals itself. So when we apply pure aloe vera gel ontop of our burns or scrapes and cuts, it is as if we were to put a see-through band-aid on top of it. It seals the wound pulling it together and keeping bacteria and parasites away. Pure aloe vera gel or an aloe ver plant should for that reason be part of every household.
