The effect of CLL on the healing of wounds is documented on many sites. I know from my own experience that cuts are now take several times longer to heal and seem to scar more than prior to having CLL.
I have seen a lot of hype about rediscovery of honey as an anti bacterial and anti microbial that helps hasten up healing. Commonly used pre war before antibiotics came along. So I was pleasantly surprised to be invited on a trial testing the efficacy of medical quality honey ManukaPharm 12+ on wound healing (available online) . The honey will be used on one of the two wounds from recent surgery for this trial.
Manuka is being researched heavily in New Zealand where most of it is produced. Clearly this remedy is of more interest to the honey producers than big pharma. Though this honey is pricey compared to table honey it is cheap compared to a lot of medication
Hopefully this will show some improvement in the healing scaring on the wound treated with honey and may give us something to help ourselves with when we get cuts and scratches. Companies are developing patches to make the process cleaner but at a big value added I am sure.
Will post follow up when the trial is completed
