First two frames are from the Movie ‘Hunger Games’ produced by a number of production companies including Lionsgate.
The first of the franchise movies depicting our soon to be dystopian future, one in which parallels one that seems apparently real life, Hunger Games ‘Tells’ us that there is a cure for 2nd if not 3rd degree burns.
(Click to enlarge): Katniss recovers in a single night after applying what is believed to be a synthetic analog of the natural treatment for burns. All trees are beneficial in one way or another and it is the Tepezcohuite Mimosa tenuiflora tree that addresses the issue of skin burns. It is mostly known for the general health of the skin and hair. This substance is what you’d look for in a Palm Springs rejuvenation salon, clinic, or resort.
The protagonist Katniss Everdeen is attacked by Panem’s command center that controls ‘The Hunger Games’ Colosseumesque recreation of gladiators fighting to the death. They fear that she is too far from the ‘game’ and to steer her back, they project fireballs in which she narrowly escapes, but without consequences. It’s not debilitating, but does require more healing power than what is available in the wild. So, they send her what you’re to believe is a synthetic modern miracle of medicine to aid in her recovery. What they send is unclear, but it is a jelly like cream that when applied, heals the burn area during the night and Katniss is ready to explode with more fight power than ever before.
What was this stuff they sent by parachute?
We’ll never know the answer to that, however, I’ll tell you that it wasn’t Neosporin. There is, however, an incredible answer in the area of natural healing medicine.
It is known at the ‘magic skin tree’
Tepezcohuite Mimosa tenuiflora (Jurema, Tepezcohuite) is a thorny perennial evergreen tree or shrub native to the northeastern region of Brazil and found as far north as southern Mexico (Oaxaca and coast of Chiapas). The Mayans of Mexico have used roasted Mimosa tenuiflora “tepezcohuite” bark to treat lesions of the skin for over a thousand years. Powdered Tepezcohuite bark contains large amounts (16%) of tannins, which act as an astringent, making the skin stop bleeding. This helps protect the body from infections, while the skin builds new protective tissue. Tepezcohuite is particularly effective in treating burns.
DMSO, or dimethyl sulphoxide, is also a tree product that can be used to dissolve extra scar tissue from skin injuries and surgeries as well as burn scarring. It helps with freshly formed scars when Tepezcohuite was not applied during the body’s healing period. Women who elected to avoid secondary scar tissue removal surgery after cesarean sections would opt for the application and treatment of the non invasive DMSO solvent method. In this way, over time the body makes a full recovery while the damaged scar tissue is being slowly eradicated from the area of injury.
Tepezcohuite is also a pain reliever.
Pain relief is important when treating severe burns or deep cuts and scrapes.
Considered to be an antiseptic, analgesic and promoter of cellular regeneration. Tepezcohuite is said to protect first and second degree burns, helping to prevent the loss of fluids. It’s claimed to aid the prevention and formation of cheloidal scars and help regenerate hair follicles. Dermatology Tepezcohuite helps prevent wrinkles and acne, as well as treat psoriasis, herpes I and herpes II and to treat chicken pox scars. Traumatology For traumatic injuries, it is believed to protect exposed bone and help regenerate soft tissues. Cosmeticology In addition to the above effects, Tepezcohuite may protect and stimulate the generation of collagen and elasticity.
An explosion of gas in a Mexican gas factory injured five thousand people. Because of the extent of the numbers of people, they turned to Tepezcohuite to treat the burns and was classified as part of Mexico’s national heritage.
I use it liberally
I’ve used Tepezcohuite on a really bad burn I got messing around with my kitchen range top. Ooooo was that smarts. I applied the ointment right away and by the following day, there wasn’t any noticeable reminders of all the swear words I screamed the day before. The stuff does what they say it does. Isn’t it interesting that people die in droves when treated in special burn wards? Hmmmm.
I use it on spider and ant stings because it eases the itching which turns to scratching which ends up being painful. Paper cuts hurt more than auto accidents. In my experience, the pain completely goes away when a little of the Tepezcohuite is smeared on the finger tip. It’s edible and I know this when after I really burned the tip of my tongue sipping too quickly on a scalding cup of cappuccino. I slathered that stuff on my tongue – forgot I almost killed my tongue the next day. That’s how effective the miracle tree is. I’m testing it now on a liver spot to see if it goes away. I’m using DMSO as a carrier solvent that takes the ointment deep under the rancid fat which a liver spot is. This is what happens when one suffers from a ‘fatty liver’..
