Sugar can help heal bedsores and other wounds when it is rubbed into it. Using sugar in wounds is a traditional African remedy and is being used in a trial at a British Hospital following a study by a Zimbabwean nurse.
The study, done by Moses Murandu, showed that granulated sugar can kill bacteria that inhibits healing and causes chronic pain. Simply pour the sugar on the wound before dressing it. In the six-month study on 21 patients, Murandu used the sugar on bedsores, leg ulcers, and amputations when wounds didn’t respond to conventional treatments.
Sugar draws out the water that allows bacteria growth in the wound. It's not painful, but actually reduces pain greatly. It’s also much cheaper than medicines and does the same thing. Mr. Murandu was give a grant to continue using sugar as a remedy on 100 more patients. He is very excited to bring relief to so many patients who have been suffering from chronic pain.
