Fast Patch
« on: August 18, 2009, 05:45:22 PM »
I fractured my foot in the early spring and its still pretty sore after a long day in the arch of my foot. I've been wanting to try a fast patch which are natural herbs etc. in a patch you put over the affected area and it speeds healing. Well i dropped a 4 inch thick large wood cutting board on the top of my knee the corner of the board whacked the top of my knee. Its really sore today so i got two patches one for my knee one for my foot lets see how they do.

the patch helped my knee out almost overnight there was a huge difference in my recovery.   Alot of the soreness in my foot has gone down but its hard to tell if its from the patch.  I have good days and bad with it. My normal days im up early on my feet all day and work a 10hr shift on a concrete floor in a kitchen and its by the end of the night that there is some soreness.

there is so much more also like elderberry,  always get a field guide until you know what your doing and what plants because it does get very overwhelming when you get in the field. peterson field guide makes a good book with color pics, and there are so many others tom brown jr's, wild edible and medicinal plants tells stories of the plants that he has used in his life and adds a more personal touch to the normal scientific books.  there is also a website www. mountainroseherbs.com that sells alot of the herbs and also the seeds so you can grow them at home.  the webpage will give you the plant and the uses.
