A bowl of brown sugar.Yes! Definitely so true! Brown sugar can actually cures wounds and bruises. If you have been lately in an accident, like falling from a bicycles or falling from trees, and you get bruises and wounds, you can immediately apply brown sugar.


Just a tap a small amount of water just to make sure the sugar stick into the skin where there is the wound or the bruises. In just 2 minutes, you can't feel the pain on the area where it is affected. The blood will stop pouring on the affected area and the bruise will be prevented. It's so safe!

That's an awful strong statement, Joan. Bruises are caused by cellular damage beneath the skin surface where topically applied sugar wont reach.

'Cure' is a word even doctors are reluctant to use. I don't think brown sugar can cure anything. An ulcer is a type of wound usually not caused by external factors. Sugar has been applied to ulcers for many years, not because it cures ulcers, but because it creates conditions under which the body can better do the actual healing.


The body cures itself, not what you put on it or in it. All any medications or home remedies can do is make conditions more favorable for the body to heal itself.

In your favor:

In one study, 1980, involving 120 patients, it was found that
: (1) treatment with sugar destroys bacteria nonspecifically, (2) sugar's action is controlled by water activity, (3) sugar treatment draws macrophages toward the wound, (4) the action of sugar treatment promotes cleansing of the wound, and (5) sugar acts as a remover of edema and a local reducer of inflammation in wounds.
