How to Heal a Cut Fast


Hey, guys, Dr. Axe here. I want to show you
how to heal a cut fast and this is something that pretty much everybody
in their life is going to get a cut, a scrape, a burn somewhere. I know
just recently actually I got a little paper cut opening something. And again, it
can happen all the time, and so what you want to do immediately after you
get a cut is clean the area so you can actually just rinse water over the
area, clean it with a dry towel, or if there’s any sign of infection or dirt
buried within there, you can actually use a little bit of hydrogen peroxide
at the very, very beginning after you get a cut or, let’s say, a scrape
or burn of some sort. Now three key ingredients in helping you heal
a cut fast, and the first one is tea tree oil, also know as melaleuca. Tea
tree oil has powerful anti- bacterial and anti-microbial benefits, so
this is one of the things you’ll definitely want to do in your homemade salve
you’re going to make. The other thing you want to do is lavender
essential oil. Lavender has powerful healing abilities. It’s probably the number
one thing you could use to naturally heal a burn. And last, but not least, is raw honey. And
not just any honey, again, raw honey that contains pollen. Raw honey has
powerful anti-bacterial properties. It also helps paste, kind of create
the paste that stays over the area, because if you’re just using essential
oils by itself, a lot of times those will go into your skin and body
immediately when you actually want them to stay localized on that area. So, what you’re going to do is you’re going
to clean the area like I said. You’re going to take a mixture, and you can
actually get a little tin and put about a tablespoon of raw honey along
with about 10-15 drops of lavender, 10-15 drops of tea tree oil. Mix
them together. Go ahead and take the salve. Put it right on the area wherever
you’ve damaged or have that cut, and simply then put a Band-Aid over it
or some sort of bandage over the area not allowing anything that can cause
any more further infection in there as well. So again, you want to heal a cut fast. Three
key ingredients, tea tree oil, lavender essential oil, and raw local honey.
If you do that, you’re going to see your cuts, any scrapes, any injuries
you have are going to heal very, very quickly.

  7. Diet plays a huge roll too. Maximizing your natural testosterone will drastically increase the speed you heal. Keeping the wound clean is a given, body chemistry is just as important though. If you are a skinny person make sure to increase your calorie intake. Also make sure you have fats in your diet no matter what your body type. Most importantly…. SLEEP…. You should be getting atleast 10 hours a night if you are injured. If you feel like you can sleep even more, do it! Sleep is extremely underrated and helps with all aspects of health. If i had a recent surgery sometimes ill sleep 12-14 hours a night for a week straight, and I ALWAYS heal up in faaaar less time than the surgeon expects. Ive actually had 7 major surgeries so ive gotten healing down to a science. My last surgery had an estimated 6 month recovery time because it was cutting into muscle tissue. 30 days after surgery I had my first check up and my surgeon was in disbelief. He had to recheck his charts to make sure i had actually had surgery because he couldn't even tell where the incisions were made. He ended up cancelling all my follow up appointments and telling me I was back at 100%.
