And you can certainly clean a wound with it if nothing else is available; it contains hormones and enzymes but no viruses or bacteria.

    Thankfully my doctor ruled out lupus, after another doctor jumped to a rushed conclusion. But having believed that i may in fact have it, even for only few days have made a big impact – provided a lesson.
