Gap ulcers on the 63-year-old foot of a diabetic man are cured by COFFEE powder that is rubbed into it every week for three months
- A doctor at Paditas University in West Java, Indonesia wrote the report
- The man refused to amputate his foot despite his deeply infected sores
- Surgeon Hendro Yuwono said that coffee is a & # 39; perfect & # 39; and & # 39; cost-effective & # 39; dressing was
Maggots are already being used by the NHS to heal wounds, while the ancient Egyptians believed they were cutting honey.
And now doctors in Indonesia have revealed another unusual way to treat the skin with gashes – pouring coffee powder on them.
Ground beans were used to treat a 63-year-old man with three diabetic foot ulcers after refusing to undergo an amputation.
The doctors rubbed arabica coffee into the man's open wounds, bandaged his foot and three months later the injuries were completely healed.
A 63-year-old man in West Java had three diabetic ulcers on top of his right foot covered with powdered coffee by doctors after he refused to undergo an amputation
Doctors at Padjadjaran Universities in West Java, Indonesia, poured 100 g (3.5 oz) of coffee onto the swollen foot of the suffering man.
The team, led by Hendro Sudjono Yuwono, called it a & # 39; cost-effective & # 39; way to treat the infected abscess on the man's right foot.
After pouring the coffee powder into the wound and wrapping it in a dressing, the doctors replaced it once a week.
A thin layer of powder was left on the broken meat at all times to prevent the new growing cells from being disturbed.
& # 39; The coffee solution is reliable because coffee has the capacity as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and highly antibacterial & # 39 ;, said Mr. Yuwono.
He said that various chemicals in coffee, including caffeine, could keep the wound cells healthy and help them heal faster.
& # 39; The coffee powder is a perfect wound dressing for wounds, & # 39; Mr. Yuwono claimed.
Doctors were confronted with treating the infected foot ulcers of the man who had emerged as a result of his diabetes – leg ulcers are a common problem for people with the condition
The man's foot was connected to the coffee on his wounds and both the powder and the dressing were changed every week
After three months the stomach ulcer was healed (photo) – the doctor who wrote the case, Hendro Yuwono, said that coffee & # 39; was a perfect dressing for a wound & # 39;
An additional advantage of using coffee, Mr. Yuwono said, was that it could quickly obscure the smell of an infected wound with a much more pleasant aroma.
& # 39; Ground coffee put directly into the wound (was) the most suitable for reducing odor & # 39 ;, he wrote in the report.
& # 39; The coffee powder has a unique aromatic scent that removes the stinking wound in an instant. & # 39;
In summary, the physicians suggested that it was preferable to use coffee in modern contexts that & # 39; repeatedly soak and rub & # 39; and wound up the wound to lead to a longer, more painful and more expensive healing process.
Diabetic foot ulcers, which develop when nerve damage and poor blood supply stop healing, are common but can lead to serious complications.
If they get too big or too deep, people may need to have their foot amputated to prevent a deadly infection from spreading through their bodies.
Mr. Yuwono's article was published in the American Journal of Medical Case Reports.
HOW CAN COFFEE POWDER BE Wounded?
Doctors from the Padjadjaran Universitas Surgery Department in West Java, Indonesia, claim that coffee powder is the & # 39; perfect wound dressing & # 39; is.
They said that since 2004, more than 200 registered cases of coffee powder have successfully healed wounds without complications.
A doctor, Hendro Sudjono Yuwono, said that coffee contains chemicals that act as antioxidants and antibacterial agents.
He mentioned caffeine, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, cafestol, kahweol, trigonelline.
He also said that a layer of coffee that turns into a film over the exposed meat can protect it from further damage through friction or washing, allowing the cells to heal faster without being disturbed.
And the powdered beans can also protect against common hospital infections, including MRSA and E.coli, he added, by producing hydrogen peroxide when it reacts with moisture in the wound – this can reduce the ability of bacteria to reproduce.
