Raw Honey and Turmeric to the Rescue! August 12, 2009

Thought  you might be interested–honey and turmeric seemed to work just fine to shrink my boil and it’s now the size of a fading pimple–no swelling, no redness, no pain or tenderness! It took about a day and a half. I used raw, unfiltered, non-heat-treated mountain honey from Sapa, Vietnam mixed with powdered turmeric to make a paste and applied it to the boil. I covered the goo with a tiny bit of tissue to keep from accidentally touching anything to the potently colorful mixture and thereby reducing the chances of staining clothes, etc. The two nights I used the paste, I also covered the area (on my nose!) with a band-aid to avoid disturbing it or messing up my linens while I slept.

I’m so glad it’s gone! Thank You Jesus!

However, around the same time I felt the boil starting, I seemed to have scratched the inside corner of my eye and must have introduced some germs there, too, without realizing it. I delicately tried applying the same paste to that area without the same success. It has now become the latest tool to humble me, as my work brings me face to face with people and this swollen eye is a distraction! I also tried a bit of Fucidin, also with little effect.

This morning I again asked my coworkers for prayer for these two afflictions, as I have the last several days, but this time I asked to be anointed with oil as it says in the Bible. (We used a dab of coconut oil!) Hopefully, I’ll see noticeable progress soon.

And in the meantime, as I always say, “The Lord knows what I need!”
