Healing Wound – or “The dry wounds myth”
A common assumption among many people is that in order to speed up the healing of a wound, it must be allowed to dry in the air.
Also among doctors, you will find that there is no consensus on this issue, and if you ask several doctors how to speed up the healing of a wound, you will most likely get different answers, each of which will be based on each doctor’s personal view.
In practice, healing will be several times faster, and will even leave fewer marks and scars under conditions where the injured tissue is moist, rather than leaving the wound to dry.
The reason for this is that when the wounded tissue is kept moist, the blood vessels regenerate faster and without delay. This is due to the continuity of blood flow, which allows the cells to form at a higher rate, without the dryness causing a change in tissue tension and scarring.
The scars, which we know as an inevitable result of an open wound, are formed due to the dehydration of the tissues exposed to dryness during the healing of the wound.
Due to the dryness, the blood flow is delayed and layers of dry cells with a different tension are formed, which changes the texture and causes scars. This can be prevented if the wound is kept as moist as possible.
In order to understand the optimal environment for recovery, you must see the blood vessels as the torn or damaged roots of a tree, as they make their way into the soil in order to grow and regenerate.
Just as injured roots will grow and regenerate more easily and quickly in moist soil than in dry soil, so when the wound environment is moist and the tissue is soft, the blood vessels make their way to regenerate the injured tissue more quickly, and the wounds will heal without unnecessary delays and signs.
Animals lick their wounds instinctively not for their taste. Another reason for this apart from the moisture effect, is that enzymes (proteins) found in saliva, soften the flesh and help the blood vessels to grow – and regenerate faster than in dry conditions.
The instinctive tendency to lick wounds for moisturizing them also exists in humans, but it has been suppressed by culture – through manners and norms and the assimilation of fears and threats.
We are shaped by the culture of not messing with wounds, thus depriving us of a basic instinct with immense healing power.
In addition to the moisture and enzymes found in saliva, another element that helps stimulate recovery is the temperature – or energy level found in the mouth. This maintains a greenhouse environment which allows the blood vessels and cells to recover and regenerate at a much greater rate, than a situation where the wound is exposed to constant changes in the temperature of the external environment.
Balancing the acids and components of the immune system found in saliva also helps maintain an environment that prevents the development of infections – and the deterioration of the wound.
We can get the effect of moisturizing and softening to accelerate recovery, in ointments made from plants such as aloe vera, and various antibiotic ointments that contain a high percentage of moisture.
Therefore, if we choose to use an antibiotic preparation, an ointment – which retains moisture for a long time, is better than a liquid that dries after a short time.
In cases of “stubborn” or painful wounds, it is recommended to use techniques such as Reiki or Healing that give energetic support to the damaged tissues, significantly reducing the pain and speeding up recovery. If you find a good practitioner, you will see the wound heals in real-time…
The picture below shows a wound that occurred after stepping on a needle, and instead of getting cured as expected, it deteriorated for several weeks and was very painful.

After a one-hour healing treatment, the pain disappeared and the woman could step on her feet and walk normally.
Watch how nice and clean the rehabilitation is.
