(Under no circumstances is this article meant to replace medical treatment of any kind and it may not be seen - or dealt with - as such.  No responsibility whatsoever will be accepted for the ignorant application of the same.)

The science of “Diffusion” and “Osmosis” is used to treat septic wounds and ulcers. Not medicine.

Two important terms and conditions are used in the videos below - “Hypotonic” and “Hypertonic” - and are explained beautifully and practically. The processes that must be accomplished with the natural treatment within the wounds.

It proves the condition of the wound where clean water is used. Secondly, it explains the process of diffusion and osmosis when using natural remedies such as sugar or salt and why the processes are used to treat the wound in a natural way.

Finally, the concept of active transport:

(Biology – diffusion and osmosis)

Wound preparation

Soak the wound in a mixture of water for 20 minutes: 2 tablespoons salt, 2 tablespoons baking soda and 2 tablespoons Epsom salt in 4-5 liters of lukewarm (previously boiled) water. Move the water back and forth over the wound by hand like a washing machine - it loosens the bacteria inside a wound.

The above mixture (baking soda) affects the pH of the wound. Salt promotes osmosis and diffusion in the wound and the Epsom salt also promotes magnesium absorption. After about 20 minutes of active washing and stimulation or massage of the wound area, there should be a condition where better circulation is present to and from the wound.

  • The wound should be dried. Can be done with a sterilised paper towel and/or patted dry with a hygienically clean towel.
  • Then pack the wound with a thick layer of treacle (dark sticky brown sugar).
  • Next place a thick layer of gauze dressing on top of the sugar and wrap it with a bandage.
  • Such that it will deprive oxygen from the wound.
  • Glad Wrap can also be used in certain cases.

Treacle sugar as medium, is used to effect the process of osmosis in the wound. The processes and operations are explained in the videos. Sugar causes an osmotic process in the wound.


Osmosis means that moisture is moved from one place to another through the process of osmosis. An easy explanation would be that moisture from one place, where there is a

high pressure (hypertonic environment we now create with sugar) where moisture is forced through the wall cells and naturally moved to a position where less or no pressure exists.

The experiments with eggs explain what happens

(Egg Osmosis – hypertonic solution)

In the case of wounds, the harmful body moisture and bacteria which have settled in the wall of the wound, are forced through the wall cells by the process of osmosis in the tissue. 

  • This means that a forced penetration from the tissue of the wound occurs, to a collection point outside the wound where there is less to no osmostic pressure.
  • Everything in life, in this case body moisture, naturally follows the path of least resistance.
  • Which means that the body moisture collects in the front of the wound. It is then deliberately absorbed by the gauze.





















Oxygen-dependent and non-oxygen-dependent bacteria in Aerobic and Anaerobic conditions

  • In inflamed and infected wounds, millions of harmful bacteria are oxygen dependent. There is also bacteria that is NOT dependent on oxygen.
  • So no matter what bacteria there is, the bacteria must have a substrate or medium to which they attach and must survive.
  • It is therefore important in wound treatment that bacteria's habitat should be disrupted.
  • There are bacteria that can survive without oxygen. A healthy immune system will be able to deal with it successfully.

(Demonstration of Osmosis using an egg)

4.       Bacteria in wounds

Good and harmful bacteria are described in the literature as unicellular organisms that can multiply very rapidly under favourable conditions. The video below explains the increase.

What it does not explain, but implies, is why wounds should preferably be taken care of 2?3 times a day.

(Bacteria growth)

4.1      Factors of importance with bacteria

Factors that influence the successful existence of a wound are:

  • Temperature
  • The pH of the wound
  • Oxygen
  • Osmotic pressure
  • Bacteria, like all other forms of life, are dependent on water

4.2 Treatment of wounds

Wounds are treated by the ideal conditions in which the harmful bacteria that thrive and propagate within the wound, are naturally disrupted with biology and science.

Methods - individual to the wound's unique conditions - must therefore be chosen to destroy and disrupt the ideal habitat of the bacterium as mentioned above.

All other forms of life depend on water. Bacteria too. It is therefore necessary to implement tactics and practices that will not only cut off harmful bacteria's oxygen, but also disrupt their ideal temperature and eliminate their necessary water needs and dependence through a process of osmosis.

5.       Sugar in wounds, in summary

  • Sugar or sucrose in a wound significantly affects the ability of bacteria to absorb water.
  • Through the process of osmosis, sugar disrupts the ability of bacteria to absorb water. It therefore inhibits the growth and multiplication of bacteria in the wound.
  • As mentioned, all bacteria need moisture in a substrate such as the inflamed tissue or skin to live and/or reproduce. Sugar prevents bacteria from absorbing water or moisture sufficiently, which is why sugar is used in wounds to cause bacteria to die off in the wound.
  • Sugar also has several antimicrobial functions. So it doesn't matter if the bacterium is resistant to antibiotic ointments and/or medication. They are deprived of basic life needs and these are:
  • moisture
  • oxygen
  • pH environment and
  • where moisture is disrupted, the ideal temperature for survival is also disrupted

6.2      Emphasise

Thus, due to the osmotic process that sugar causes in the wound, the moisture of the wound exposed to the process is forced through the walls of the wound to find the path of least resistance. To a place where no pressure or osmotic conditions are found.

The moisture is then absorbed by the dry thick gauze packed on the front of the wound as it is let out of the wound.

7.       Cleaning of the wound

  • Always work with clean hands and preferably surgical gloves.
  • Use saline solution (9 grams of salt in 1 liter of clean boiled or distilled water) in a clean spray bottle to clean wounds and do not touch the wound area afterwards.
  • 3% Peroxide Vol 10 can be used in some cases but only where no exposed bone is present.
  • At the beginning of the treatment the wound, as it exists, will continuously moisturise with the addition of sugar, which will reduce systematically.
  • It will therefore be necessary to replace the gauze on the wound regularly. May even be required 2-3-4 times a day in the beginning.

8.       The gauze that is removed should preferably be burnt. It contains literally billions of bacteria. The new wound:

  • Will show over time that the infection and bacteria count is less
  • That healing and tissue granulation itself is taking place
  • It should have a healthy red colour
  • The wound's walls should show no signs of bacteria

9.       How is the wound managed?

The popular belief is that it is medicines and/or pills of sorts, also ointments and antibiotics, that heal a wound.

That it can make an important contribution is true and is not denied.

  • However, the most important healing factor is the various important reactions of the immune system.
  • This is what heals the wound with many biological effects.
  • In addition to sensible hygiene and wound cleaning practices, it is the immune system's ability to form new cells for the skin, tissue, nerves and blood vessels that bring about the healing process, as well as antibodies to the remaining bacteria.

10.      Colostrum

In more than 3,000 Articles, published in Medical Journals, Colostrum from dairy cattle is proven to be the most complete superfood known to man for the immune system.

(Colostem explained)

11.      Important

So it is not the person or the doctor, nor the person treating the wound, nor the medicine that heals a wound.

  • The most important role player in any human and animal’s body is the person's immune system to overcome disease and prevent disease.

12.      In addition to successful wound treatment, briefly the following

  • Adequate absorption of magnesium into the body. One method is to smear an Epsom salt mixture (Aqueous cream and ordinary Medical Grade Epsom salt with magnesium in a 50:50 ratio),
    twice a day all over the body (not on any wounds) to increase magnesium uptake.
  • Pure Epsom salt can also be sprinkled into shoes and with ladies it can be put on a panty liner in their underwear, also in their bra's to promote absorption of magnesium.
  • Essentiale and other natural foods should be consumed to help the liver function in producing bile, breaking down toxins and depositing it in the colon.
  • The broken down secretions of the body should come out. A person with wounds or a disease may not be constipated because then all the broken down cells and wastes circulate over and over in the body.
    Deposit somewhere in the body's cells the wastes that develop into sores.
  • Movement and the promotion of blood circulation is a critical necessity.
  • The poor management of circulation can cause waste to not secrete in all the positions of the tissue.
  • The lymphatic vessel system will also not functionally drain lymph and other waste. It will be deposited with tissue deficiencies somewhere in the tissues that will infect the bones and elsewhere.
  • Distorted hormonal development and delivery can affect several organs.
  • Activated charcoal in the morning and evening will neutralise waste and other toxins that collect in the stomach and digestive system.
  • .The herbal mixture of cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, red pepper and also black pepper - which improves the absorption of turmeric by almost 70% - to detoxify or detox the body, can be taken daily. Mix it with yoghurt or honey or encapsulate it.
  • Cut out sugar and starch as far as possible to eliminate any fungi that a wound may have .
