Broken bones and bruises and how to heal them

Comfrey has been used as a topical medicine for over 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the Middle Ages, comfrey baths were very common. Comfrey is actually one of nature’s greatest medicinal herbs according to herbal compendiums around the world. Comfrey leaf is one of the best additions to a poultice for healing wounds and broken bones. Folk medicine calls it “knitbone” for its ability to speed the healing of broken bones. High in Calcium and Vitamin C, comfrey simulates healing activity. With its naturally high concentration of allantoin, it is also a powerful anti-inflammatory on top of any bruise, scrape, sprain or other injury. Do not take comfrey internally and it is not recommended for use during pregnancy. I used it on my shattered collar bone a while back and it completely healed in about 4 weeks with no residual problems – and I was 50 at the time!

Yes, that is my shattered clavicle.
