A Useful Adjunct to Wound Healing

This is not directly associated with Colloidal Silver (yet) and my research is currently in the very early stages; however, I am putting this out in the hope that others will contribute in the “Comments” section.
I came across a treatment for Tinnitus recently which involves the use of coherent light, something I have known about for many years. The idea is that blue light calms the cells of the body and red light energises the cells. Some links follow:
I was sent a marketing letter offering this product, but the price was absurd (over 250 GBP) for what was obviously “just” a low-power red laser pointer connected to a flexible earpiece with a fibre-optic core, directing the laser light onto the eardrum. The power rating was stated as between 1 – 5 mW and 635nm laser diode (red light).
I thought about this for a while and made sure that I immediately bought several laser “pointers” in case the ignorant PTB attempt to ban their use and purchase. I now have several 1 mW (this is the standard-power laser pointer in the UK), and a couple of higher-powered laser pointers, in case power is important. The power rating for the commercial item is 5 mW.
The commercial device is a Class II medical device, and cannot achieve this designation without having a proven medical effect. As I have had good results against Seasonal Affective Disorder with home-made light boxes, I therefore thought that the concept was worth pursuing.
Starting at the lower end of the power spectrum, as the commercial versions are intended to be used for 20 minutes at a time, I shone a standard, unmodified red laser pointer of 1 mW at a small cut for about half a minute, and repeated this once a day.
To my astonishment (but I should not have been surprised, I suppose) the cut not only healed twice as fast, but the scab fell off in three days. I commend this to the readership, and I cannot help speculating that since CS in its’ ISO form is highly light-sensitive, the effects of a combination of red laser light and ISO may be interesting.
I shall be conducting further experiments and will report back.
SAFETY NOTE: Laser light, even at 1 mW, may cause eye damage; and 200 mW and 1000 mW lasers of any colour, will light a match. More power is not necessarily better in this instance. YOU CANNOT SHINE A LASER OF THESE POWER RATINGS AT YOUR SKIN for any length of time, let alone your eardrum, without SEVERE DAMAGE. A 200 mW laser burns skin in seconds. DO NOT DO IT.

Suggested Protocol for Wound Dressings with CS

My wife had to go in for an operation on her lower abdomen. This operation was completely successful, but she was left with a wound about 5 inches long, stapled shut with stainless steel medical staples. They gave her some large adhesive dressings and sent her home to recover. My wife asked me to tend to the wound, and this is the protocol I used:
Get some gauze (unsterile is fine, non-medical gauze is fine. CS is self-sterilising).
Cut a piece to cover the wound.
Either cover the whole gauze with a hypoallergenic adhesive film (the sort that medics use to stick over a wound – this was what we used in my wife’s case), or for smaller injuries, tape the gauze over the wound, allowing small parts of the gauze to show between the sections of surgical tape. You may also use superglue and strips of tissue paper to hold the wound closed if you cannot attend a hospital; I used this on a very deep knife cut, and this was more effective and neater than stitching.
If using the adhesive film, snip a small slit with sharp scissors at the top edge of the wound dressing.
Using a syringe (with a blunt needle or with no needle at all), irrigate the gauze with ISO or sugar-capped CS (gelatin-capped is not advised; cinnamon-capped does work but not quite as well as heat-reduced or glucose-reduced) until the gauze is sopping wet. I actually used ISO, 20ppm.
As often as possible in the next week, several times a day, check the gauze and re-irrigate to keep the gauze as wet as possible. Do not change the dressing unless it comes loose.
After a week, gently remove the dressing (another advantage of this protocol is that the gauze is far less likely to stick to the wound) and examine the wound. Renew the dressing and soak the new gauze if necessary, but you should see visible improvement in the healing process.
Results from the operation wound for my wife, for those interested;
BEFORE: The wound was stapled shut – badly – and small areas of subcutaneous fat (about 2-3 mm) were poking out of the wound between two of the staples. The wound was covered in an adhesive dressing, and the hospital supplied a couple of replacement dressings, which we did not need.
AFTER: On day six, I slowly removed the adhesive dressing and the gauze underneath (which was still wet) peeled off the wound. The area of subcutaneous fat was gone, the whole wound was closed, and the scab peeled off with the gauze, leaving a perfectly-clean, almost completely healed wound. We covered the wound with a dry fresh gauze pad after spraying the skin with CS. A day or so later, the appointment for the removal of the staples came along, and we just re-sprayed the wound line at intervals to ensure that no re-infection took place.
Your mileage may vary, but I would use this protocol every time. We did not see any necessity to explain to the surgeon exactly why the wound healed so fast…
