Burns

 

Most burns are not serious and can be managed with simple care at home. Soothing herbal ointments such as Aloe Vera or Calendula can be applied to mild burns. In addition a number of vitamins, minerals and other supplements can be taken orally to promote healing and prevent infection.

 

Burns are most commonly caused by scalding water, hot oil or grease, hot foods or over exposure to sun. More serious injuries may result from fire, steam or chemicals. Electrical burns, usually occurring from contact with faulty or uninsulated wiring, can be deceptive; skin damage may be minimal, but internal injuries can be extensive.

 

How supplements can help

 

Self care is appropriate for mild and some moderate burns covering a small area.

Once the burn has cooled apply Aloe Vera gel, a dressing soaked in chamomile tea or lavender oil directly to the injured are to relieve pain and inflammation and soothe the skin. Then use infection fighting Calendula cream or Goldenseal cream on any raw areas and cover with a light dressing.

During the healing process the body needs extra nutrients which should be taken for a week or two, until the burn heals. Taken in conjunction the herb Gotu Kola (which stimulates the growth of connective tissue in the skin), vitamins C and E and the mineral Zinc all work together to boost the immune response, repair skin and tissues and prevent scarring.

 

Did you know?

 

Butter is an old folk remedy for burns- but don’t use it. Like other oils or greasy ointments, butter traps moisture slows down healing and increases the risk of later infection.

 

Drink plenty of fluids while your body is healing.

 

Avoid exposing your burnt skin to hot showers or the sun.

 

Aloe Vera gel greatly speeds up healing.
