How To Create Homemade Penicillin. Seriously.
Usually we get penicillin as a shot prescribed by the doctor. However, there is a scientifically proven thing, that you can make your own. Oranges and simple bread are two of the most universally common household kitchen items. But did you know that oranges and bread are capable of producing penicillin simply by letting them sit around and age?
That green disgusting mold which develops on the surface of bread is actually called Penicillium. Keeping in mind that in real world cases infections can result in serious medical concerns, loss of a limb or death if left untreated, without access to modern medical supplies would you know what to do to help your partner.
- Take bread and place it in a bag or container
- Let sit until spores begin to form
- Take all the bread and break it up into smaller pieces
- Add some moisture (light misting) and place the broken up pieces back in the same sealed bag or container
- Monitor the mold growth and do not remove until the majority of the mold culture begins to turn decidedly green.
- As the mold begins to grow and develop it will take on white, blue and green stages. The green mold you see in the picture above illustrates this point.
- The green color is going to contain doses of penicillin.
As you can see the green areas are where the mold has grown the largest, essentially where it has matured. Now that you have this green mold, you can actually begin to use it as treatment.
There are a few ways to go about this
Take the bread clumps, fill up a large cup full of them and add warm water (not boiling water). Mix together and consume. Repeat as necessary, essentially as daily doses of penicillin. It is important to note that while you are growing the mold, you are most likely growing other things. Not all of the helpful. And when you consume the bread will be getting both penicillin and that bad stuff. In the scenario above, diarrhea or upset stomach are much less serious problems compared to a major infection. So it can be worth it. This remedy has been used for thousands of year in ancient cultures and has also been seen in many folk remedies around the United States for centuries.
Take your time and carefully separate nothing but the green mold from the bread. Clean the wound, take your ‘scrapings’ from the bread and topically apply them over the whole would. Dress lightly and repeat this process regularly.
If a wound is fresh and clean and infection free, you can apply honey to the area to preserve it from harmful bacteria. Believe it or not, medical grade honey bandages are still used in modern emergency rooms to this day. For home use simply cover the entire area in honey, and wrap the wound to both keep the honey in place and everything else away.
There are of course more advanced ways to make penicillin from bread and oranges that go beyond what I mentioned above.
