Treating Decubitis Ulcers (bed sores) with SBT Seabuckthorn healing SeaBuckthorn Seed Oil and Sea Buckthorn  Fruit Oil.

The following account was submitted by Jean Dunlop of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Canada. She is writing about her mother Nellie and the successful treatment of a persistent ulcer on her leg through the application of our SBT Seabuckthorn Seed and Fruit Oils. We are grateful to both Nellie and Jean for this encouraging and important testimonial on the exceptional healing properties of our SBT Seabuckthorn Oils.

"I talked to my mom and she gives her permission to use the pictures of her lovely gam (leg). if you wish and you can use my words if you want. In case you folks no longer have my original e-mails from February, I would like to give you a bit more background information.

The story really begins in March of 2006 when my then 91 year-old mother was spring cleaning and fell off the step stool she was using, badly bruising many spots along her right side. The worst bruising occurred on her lower right leg, outer aspect. Her doctor feared the spot would eventually break open and referred my mother to the Wound Resource Nurses with Home Care. They began treating it with very tight compression bandages which were to help keep it from breaking open.

Unfortunately, it did break open and was considered to be a decubitus ulcer. They continued with the compression bandages for a number of weeks on 2 occasions, used silver nitrate dressings to try to promote healing, and then kept Tegaderm bandages on it for months, changing them weekly. The area would develop a thin membrane of skin over it, blister and reopen, or skin would be pulled off in removing the Tegaderm bandages.

The Wound Resource Nurses indicated that spontaneous re-openings would be a problem that would go on for the rest of my mother's life. (I should also add that my mother has chronic lymphocytic leukemia which likely complicates healing). All the while, that area of mom's leg was very red and inflamed looking. This continued until February, 2007 when I took over the care of mom's leg and decided that to continue doing the same thing was clearly not productive.


SBT Sea Buckthorn Oils heal bed sores.  I truly believe that using SBT Seabuckthorn oil made most of the difference."

The above photo was taken after several months of treatment with the SBT Seabuckthorn Oils. While the skin is still slightly discoloured it is evident that the wound has fully healed and the skin is intact.

Decubitis ulcers or bed sores as they are commonly known; are a very serious condition that can ultimately involve all the layers of skin, muscle, bone and even internal organs. 

It was at this point, while using the Fucidin to clear up what appeared to be infection in it and wondering what I would do next, that my nephew showed me an article in the Saskatoon Sun about the use of Seabuckthorn for decubitus ulcers. I am so grateful he did. 

I began using Seabuckthorn oil (a mixture of 10 drops of seed oil mixed with 4 drops of fruit oil gently rubbed into the affected area). I kept it covered with a gauze wrap held in place by one of those stretchy mesh tubular bandages to avoid any adhesives on Mom's skin. Within a few days of starting the Seabuckthorn oil, the redness faded significantly and soon disappeared. The new skin that had formed over the open area gradually changed from being very thin and fragile looking to looking much more like normal skin.

After four months of using the Seabuckthorn, when mom returned to wearing her own compression stockings, much more progress had been made than during the preceding 10 or 11 months of traditional medical treatments. And in the 3 1/2 months since then, the skin on her leg has continued to be healthy looking and problem free. I truly believe that using Seabuckthorn oil made most of the difference."

Omega-3 plus vitamins may prevent bed sores in hospitals
"Bed sores, which afflict up to one-tenth of hospital patients, may be prevented by adding key supplements to a standard hospital diet, reports new research from Israel. The treatment of pressure ulcers, caused by pressure, friction and moisture, is estimated to cost as much as 3m per year in a typical 600-bed general hospital, and an annual 1.4bn to 2.1bn across the UK - equivalent to 4 per cent of total National Health Service (NHS) spending."
