Superbugs, stronger than any antibiotic we can throw at them, are spreading faster than we have the capacity to fight back. 2 million people will be infected in the United States this year alone. 23,000 will die.
OMG it has been so crazy lately. Check this out. I am working to create a video to teach "how to treat infections without using pharmaceutical antibiotics"...
A good thing, right? With all those super bugs and stuff.
Ha, ha, - or you know in those apocalypse movies how the hero lives through the hordes, the famines, the pestilence, etc.. Only to die in the end from an infected cut on his finger?
Even the World Health Organization is saying "hello Houston, we've got a problem".
Anyway, there are really effective techniques that have been used by humans forever... We sort of dropped these methods because antibiotics are so much faster (and cheap).
But I know you've been watching the news and you know this is antibiotic resistance a serious thing, right?
So I've got a great master herbalist with decades of experience and excellent presentation skills, and we shoot the video all about these ancient techniques.
But the real cost in producing a film is in all the editing.
So I am trying to use crowd funding to raise the extra money that is needed.
We read all the rules, and go through all the hoops with Kickstarter, and then in the last moment before going live, Kickstarter review team tells us they won't allow our project.
Because we claim to "treat" ailments. They came back to us saying "could you re-word your campaign, and we will consider your amended request?"
Imagine that! A real solution to a very big problem and they want me to say it... how?
I tell them "No! we can't re-word... - this is a serious problem and this is what we are about".
So we jumped over to Indiegogo and re-did all the work. Indiegogo didn't even blink.
So we are live!

Here are some photos of a dog bite that we treated with raw steak and raw honey and it healed in 2 weeks with no infection. 1/8-1/4" of raw steak, not previously frozen, large enough to cover the area. We used about 1/4 tsp of raw honey and then covered it with steak and bandaged the hand to keep the steak in place. We changed the steak, rinsed the area with a damp washcloth and then reapplied fresh honey and steak only once every 24 hours. The steak and honey kept the wound moist. The tooth made a jagged wound that angled under the skin to the fat layer, but not through the muscle, as far as I could see. It healed up so nicely!
I've also applied steak to an existing infected paper cut and a broken blood blister. The infected paper cut was about the size of a pencil eraser and under the pad of my friend's thumb. It healed in 24 hours. The puss was gone and there was no more soreness. The blood blister had ruptured (with a bit of flesh sticking out of the hole) and was about 1/2" in diameter. The steak cleaned out all the old blood out of the wound in 24 hours and it never got infected.
Has anyone else used steak on a wound? I should probably move this post to a non-herbal medicine centric thread. I'm enthusiastic about treating infections naturally, when at all possible. I got inspired by all the horrible photos of infections on Marjorie's video, haha!
