Cycling - when my body met the road
I am a keen cyclist and have taken part in several long distance cycling events, however, on August 5th the inevitable happened. Back to Top of your health online page
My competitive nature fuelled with a schoolboy belief in my own invulnerability got the better of me and as a result of an error of judgement on my part ….
I crashed out of the race. Landing on left shoulder and upper back I suffered what the medics described as multiple contusions!
X-Rays showed no fractures to the ribs but the attendant St John’s Ambulance were unable to dress the wounds to their satisfaction because of the size and position.
That evening, Aug. 5th, with clean wounds, Leslie smeared a liberal layer of Soothing Aloe Gel all over the effected area and covered it so that it wouldn’t stick to my shirt. Aloe Gel was applied 2 or 3 times per day as required.
As the wounds began to heal Skin Activator was applied and Soothing Hand & Body Lotion was used to help with improving suppleness and flexibility of the newly forming skin.
I think this is a pretty remarkable recovery from what was … I assure you, an uncomfortable injury! as the St John’s Ambulance nurse said at the time, “this is going to be sore in the morning!”
In addition to the unquestionable quality and excellence of our Outer Nutrition products I believe consistent daily use of the Inner Nutrition products also played a part in my recovery.

Skin Activator and Aloe Hand & Body Lotion take the place of Aloe Gel –
all that’s needed now is a bit of a tan!

In all three cases, the wounds can bleed.
When it bleeds the tiny blood vessels located underneath the skin are ruptured.
Platelets form clot to stop the bleeding and a scab can also form.
If the bleeding does not stop fairly quickly then the wound should cleaned using lukewarm water and mild soap. The wound should then be treated with Antibacterial ointment or with Aloe vera gel and it should be covered with a bandage.
The antibacterial ointment helps kill germs.

The bandage will prevent bacteria from getting into the would and causing infection.
The bandage should be changed everyday and the wound should be kept dry.
If a cut is very deep then you will need to visit a doctor who will assess the best was to deal with it.
The treatment may be traditional stitches though nowadays there are other options with glues and special bandages that sick on to the skin and bind the would closed. These products can, in some cases, avoid the need for stitches and give an effectively scar free healing to the wound.
