Bring on the maggots! This isn't so shocking or disgusting. Maggots are very effective cleaners and go after only dead flesh while leaving healthy
flesh alone - someting most drugs and topicals can't do. It often is the difference between keeping a limb or appendage or not.
Okay, obviously someone some where has gone too far. Once we start trusting maggots to become a factor in our health and healing process, that's when
we should just stop and completely ask ourselves, "What are we doing wrong?" I don't know maybe someone else has a better opinion here. Maybe I'm
just totally off the mark. Suggestions please.
We're doing something wrong by NOT using something effective and perfectly suited for the task. I have zero problem with something effective being
used in healthcare. We use animal products to cure our ills and pamper ourselves every day. Insulin from pig pancreas, balms and salves from fat and
bone, soap from animal renderings, fish scales in lipsticks and eyeshadows, pig parts for transplant, bee venom for treating MS, leeches to
reestablish blood flow to strugling re-attached fingers... there are endless "shocking" treatments.
What are we doing wrong? We're too easily offended and disgusted and we rely too heavily on marginally effective drugs.
These maggots, by the way, are not plucked from a trashbin or found feasting on manure. They are medically cultured and sterile little jewels that
know what their job is, and do it remarkably well. I'll take maggots over antibiotics anyday
