A brief summary of my treatment plan:
Although the garlic by itself may be sufficient, as a hyper-mom,
I used steps 2,4, and 5 when confronted with a poisonous insect bite
on my 6-year-old’s forehead, repeating these three steps
5-6 times until symptoms had all disappeared.
This entire process took six hours.
Seven years later, now that I know about these other steps,
as I am equipped, I plan to execute all of them for maximum, speedy relief.
1. Rinse the wound with a mild salt water solution if necessary.
2. Chew a small segment of garlic and pack this into the wound. (If garlic is not available, you might try a bit of raw onion, or even a radish – any vegetable with a high sulfur content.) This de-activates the poison at the source.
3. *** Although I heard of this next possibility just days earlier and have not tested it, it may be helpful—if garlic and onions are not available—to apply the juice and/or pulp of a fresh tomato to the entry would to de-activate the poison. ***
4. Have the victim eat some fresh garlic to begin internal detoxification.
5. Create a juice drink containing “massive” doses of Vitamin C and calcium, and have the victim drink a couple of sips. You may blend greens with citrus juice, blend yogurt with citrus juice, grind up vitamins and blend them into raw fruits and vegetables. – Pray for wisdom to use whatever you have handy.
6. Check the victim’s breathing.
7. Begin documenting treatment methods in case medical professionals end up needing to be consulted. Write everything down.
8. Check for development of symptoms.
9. If victim is taken to a doctor or hospital, tell everyone there exactly what you did to attempt treatment. Have several copies of your notes to share with doctors.
10. Create a cleansing bath of lukewarm water laced with a cup of white vinegar and half a cup of white salt.
11. Encourage the victim to eat three heads of iceburg lettuce or as much watermelon as he can choke down, especially the white part near the rind.
12. Repeat garlic externally and internally, repeat vitamin C and calcium drink, and repeat cleansing bath as needed.
13. As symptoms disappear, repeat treatments less frequently.
14. Flush puncture wounds with Epsom salt rinse
15. Pack wound with raw honey to guard against infection. If you want to keep a scar, then do this for only a few days, then allow the top of puncture wounds to scab over for an interesting, conversation-provoking scar.
16. As always, in all situations, seek Jesus! His goal is your peace.
