Motorcycle Accident: I purchased Complete Bone and Tissue ointment (BF&C) this summer because I bought a season pass to the pool and was told it would work great on sunburns. I've had super quick results healing sunburns within a 24 hour period. It's most dramatic results are on the baby and 3 year old. Well I recently got to put it to the test. My husband went down on his motorcyle and the skin on one palm came right off down to the meat as well as a pretty bad scrape on his arm. He put up a little bit of a fuss when I insisted on packing a bandage with BF&C ointment and applying it to his wounds at least twice per day, but he stuck with it and by the 4th day after the accident you could see amazing healing taking place after each 24 hour period. I wish I had taken daily pictures! Nice, pretty pink skin starting coming back and it looked like someone had taken an eraser and erased the ugly scratches. Before 2 weeks, he had skin completly regrown on every wound. He told me to order more and I'm constantly finding new ways to use it! - rdwelch 8/11/05
Concerning the warning label on the Complete Tissue ointment:
The FDA is requiring all the herb companies put a warning label on any product that has comfrey in it. The label says the following:
Warning: External use only. Consuming this product can cause serious liver damage. This product contains Comfrey. Comfrey contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which may cause serious illness or death. This product should not be taken orally, used as a suppository, or applied to broken skin. For futher information contact the FDA at http://www.cfsan.fda.gov
It is true that there are pyrrolizidine alkaloids in comfrey. Dr. Christopher taught and believed that herbs should be used in their entirety. He believed that the body is able to deal with small amounts of toxins in the herbs when the whole herb is used. Whole herbs are used in the formulas. No research was done by the FDA concerning the use of whole herbs - only that pyrrolizidine alkaloids alone cause liver damage.
