This past summer I was wheel barrowing fill dirt and freshly cut brush
along my back fence. I am 67 but work hard and ignore little pains to get
the job done. As I pushed my full wheelbarrow what I thought was the
painful "snap" of a limb striking my ankle turned out to be something else.
I kept working and eventually took a look at a terrible itch thinking it
was a chiggar bite. The spot looked like I had two big chiggars, so I put
some Oreganol oil on it to stop the itching. Oreganol quickly kills my
chiggar bites and dislodges the critters. The next morning I examined the
bite and saw two deep and open punctures with necrosis around each hole and
completely between the two holes. I rubbed it a bit and lots of clear
yellowish liquid poured out and the pain got better. It was then I realized
I had been bitten by a copperhead snake common to our area. I reapplied
some more Oreganol three times a day and in two days, the necrosis fell off
exposing slightly sunken pink flesh. The bite area is fine but somewhat
sunken around the two puncture wounds. I am sure that had I taken
conventional medical treatment it would have left big scars and tissue
damage. I am convinced that Oreganol is a great first aid, especially for
snakebites and it seems to neutralize the poisen and promote quick healing.
Copperhead bite .WOW!
WOW, Bill! That is a wonderful testimony to the miraculous healings you can
have with Oreganol. We live in an area with copperheads and rattlers, and I
will definitely keep the Oreganol with the activated charcoal capsules, and
turn to both if we ever have such a harrowing experience.
It would more
than likely work for a Brown Recluse Spider bite, too, and my daughter
found out the hard way what an aggressive venom those nasty spiders spew.
She was bitten on the ankle, and as with most spider bites, she did not
feel anything until the venom started to eat away the flesh surrounding the
two puncture wounds. I immediately put some stabilized oxygen drops on the
bite and then opened an activated charcoal capsule and packed the bite with
it and covered it with a bandage. I also gave her the stabilized oxygen
drops in water and made her take two charcoal capsules. When I called the
ER and spoke with a nurse, I was told not to worry and to bring her in only
if the necrotizing worsened...yeah, right...
We took her to the ER the
next morning because her whole leg was sore, and it was painful to put
weight on it. I gave her more oxygen and charcoal before we left. The
doctor asked us what we used, and he had to say that it was a very
effective remedy that had stopped the venom from causing any further
damage. (She doesn't even have a scar!) He just put a new bandage on her
and sent her off to school with a crutch.
Now I have a new remedy for
poisonous bites, thanks to you, Bill. I cannot remember the brand name of
the stabilized oxygen, and we're out of it, so Oreganol to the rescue!
