Cheryl, a concert violinist, shares her history with cellulitis: “I am now fifty-seven, but some time ago I began to develop cellulitis on the shin of my paralyzed leg [from polio]. The skin would become fiery red and very sensitive. Because sepsis can set in and attack the whole body, cellulitis can become a deadly infection if left to run its course. In fact, on one occasion it did land me in the hospital. It had been bothering me for several years, but the doctors could only recommend stronger and stronger antibiotics. However, the antibiotics seemed to work less and less effectively, and I was afraid they would become ineffective if I ever really needed them.
“At the time, my husband was practicing at a California hospital, and so I finally went to the orthopedic surgeon and asked if there was anything he could recommend. He directed me to a vascular surgeon. On my first visit to this specialist, based on his brief examination, he said, “I don’t know why you don’t just get it cut off!” referring to my leg.
“So much for that. I continued taking antibiotics, but I also began to ask around for some alternatives. Three years ago, when I was visiting near Wildwood Hospital in Georgia, I was directed to a doctor who worked there. I asked her how I could keep the cellulitis from flaring up again.“It is so simple!” said Dr. Robbie, MD, “All you need is two buckets, two thermometers and some hot and cold water”. She then showed me how to give myself hot and cold soaks to the leg, and how to apply a charcoal poultice over the affected area overnight. Within a couple of days I had my healthy pink color back again. For the past three years I have not been bothered with the cellulites. I have found that at the first sensation of it coming on, if I immediately begin to give myself the hot/cold treatments (seven changes), with the charcoal poultice overnight, the cellulitis never develops.” CharcoalRemedies.com page 141
