Resin is useful for many diseases


You need to sing songs and compose poems about sap. The people say that this means is given to us as an inheritance. Whether we can properly dispose of it and multiply it, that is the question.

The following story can be cited about the possibility of various uses of resin for medicinal purposes. Three patients come to the doctor with various diseases, in their opinion, but the doctor does not know that they are from the same family. First the father came in complaining of a stomach ulcer, and the doctor gave him medicine. Then the daughter came in with complaints of furunculosis and eczema, and the doctor gave her the same medicine. Finally, a respectable lady, the mother of her daughter, came in with complaints of colds and coughs, and the doctor gave her the same medicine. All three of them, returning home, noticed that the doctor had given the same medicine for a variety of diseases.

Indeed, the resin has helped and is helping very many, from an early age to a ripe old age. In Russia, since ancient times and until now, it is customary to chew pine resin to strengthen teeth, gums, and disinfect the oral cavity. In ancient Egypt, pine resin was included in embalming compositions, and it was established that over the past 3000 years these balms have not lost their bactericidal properties.

The healing properties of Scots pine resin

Sometimes it has an extraordinary healing effect. For example, in case of lip cracks ("lip split") with unbearable pain, three days of lubrication with resin is enough to heal the wound. With catarrh, stomach ulcers, take small doses of it inside. With furunculosis, oleoresin is smeared on fabric and applied to sore spots. Pain relief occurs almost immediately, and after 2-3 days these procedures will lead to the complete resorption of boils. If the resin is taken in a solid state, then it can be made plastic and even liquid by mixing it with hot vegetable oil.

Many people cure weeping eczema in a few days with the help of sap, moistening sore spots with it. It has bronchodilator and anticancer effects.

In case of diseases of the respiratory system, the resin is insisted in water and a glass of infusion is drunk during the day for 3-4 doses. Angina can be cured in 24 hours by sucking on a piece of pine or spruce resin.

Purified turpentine oil, purified turpentine is obtained by steam distillation of pine sap and is used for rubbing into the skin mixed with petroleum jelly. Terpinghydrate is obtained from turpentine. It is taken as an expectorant and sputum-thinning agent for bronchitis and tracheobronchitis, but it is quite clear that the resin itself is much more useful and effective than the drugs obtained from it.

People often turn to us for help when they suffer from stomach pains caused by an ulcer. Patients complain that neither oatmeal nor almagel helps. In such cases, resin is an indispensable remedy, which is absorbed through a pea on an empty stomach, and even better during the day, repeat the procedure before eating. It helps! Moreover, it is useful for colitis, anacid gastritis, hepatitis, cholecystitis and enterocolitis. It improves the intestinal microflora, copes with dysbiosis. Gum ointment has a radical therapeutic effect in hemorrhoidal bleeding. Often there are problems in the elderly due to dry calluses on the soles of the feet. The best recipe turned out to be when a resin was applied to the sore spots on the steamed feet at night, and fixed on top with an adhesive plaster.

With a severe cold, when it becomes difficult to breathe due to a hysterical, heavy, incessant cough, dissolve the resin in hot water and mix it with granulated sugar. Make balls of this mixture the size of a pea or bean and dissolve after eating.

The most convincing example of the useful use of resin for me is my uncle, a front-line soldier, who decided to quit smoking after the war. All attempts to use a wide variety of means ended in nothing: either he took special pills, then he applied nicotine patches to the skin - and nothing! Until, finally, someone advised him to chew the pine resin collected in the forest on a full moon. The urge to smoke did not immediately disappear, but gradually, after two weeks, he felt that the urge to smoke began to weaken, and a month later he noticed that he had lost this addiction altogether.

He chewed the resin at least three times a day after meals for 15-20 minutes. At first, due to a decrease in the number of cigarettes smoked, nausea, sweating, and slight dizziness may appear, but soon all this passes. If problems arise when chewing in a pure form, then you can do it together with chewing gum, the composition is softer, the resin does not crumble after hardening. (Now in our pharmacies there is a natural taiga resin in the form of chewing gum). In addition, he recovered from chronic gastritis, teeth stopped hurting, and caries began to subside.

The medicinal properties of Siberian larch resin

Not only pine resin is useful, but also spruce and fir, but Siberian larch resin is considered especially healing. Resin contains many vitamins and minerals, it restores the composition of tooth enamel, protects teeth from pathogenic bacteria that cause periodontal disease and caries.

Chewing the resin increases the production of saliva, which helps to cleanse the mouth, strengthens the gums and roots of the teeth. An even load on the gums strengthens the chewing muscles and helps to create the correct bite, which is why it is so useful to give it to children.

A case with an ankle sprain convinced me of the healing properties of fir resin. It is known that when the ligaments are stretched, the joint swells, and acute pulling pains appear. If you melt the interior fat (pork, bear or other) and mix in equal proportion with the resin, thoroughly grind them in a water bath, add moonshine (one eighth of the total volume of the mixture), then a compress with this mixture will not only relieve pain, but also swell, as well as the associated burgundy-cyanotic spot at the site of stretching.

With attacks of radiculitis, rub the resin dissolved in oil into the sore spot until the skin turns red. Then on this place you need to put dough (preferably rye), wrapped in cloth, and put parchment paper on top and wrap the body with a woolen scarf. The compress is put on for 40-60 minutes, after which the pain is relieved.

The gum helps to heal burn wounds. For example, it happened in my childhood that a child stepped in the forest near a fire on a coal, which burned the thin rubber sole of a slipper and burned my foot. Household healers immediately figured out what to do. We took 1 tbsp. l. quicklime, poured 1 liter of cold water, insisted 6 hours. At the same time, an ointment was prepared from resin, wax and interior lard in equal proportions. After heating over low heat with constant stirring, cooled. The wound was washed with lime water, and then smeared with the prepared ointment and bandaged. The dressing was changed daily, but four days was enough to leave not a trace of the burn.

The resin, dissolved in vegetable oil (1: 4), in the form of drops, helps to treat eye diseases - cataracts, thorns. It must be instilled into the eyes drop by drop at night for two months.
