Healing Miracle for Burns

A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapours ignited and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming. His neighbour came out of her house with a dozen eggs and a bowl yelling, "Bring me some more eggs!"

She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks.

The neighbour woman helped her to apply the whites onto the young man's face.

When the ambulance arrived and the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.

They congratulated her and said, "You have saved his face."

By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby's skin.

Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching beginner fireman. First Aid consists of first spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced which stops the continued burning of all layers of the skin. Then, spread the egg whites onto the affected area.

One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold tap water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer. She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal colour. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.

Stir Fried Malabar Spinach with Salted Egg

Malabar spinach is in fact not related to spinach! The leaves and stems of Malabar Spinach is purplish-red or green. It has fleshy and thick leaves. When cooked, it is slightly slippery. I used to cook this veggie quite often as my girls like it. It is simple and easy to prepare; be it a stir-fry or a simple vegetable soup. No matter how you cook it, it is still tasty!

Here is one of my Malabar Spinach recipes which I stir fried it with salted egg. Hope you like it!!

Ingredients :
- a bunch of Malabar Spinach - washed
- 1 salted egg - whipped;  yolk, cut into small pieces 
-  garlic - crushed
- 1/2 cup of water
- soy sauce - to taste
- Cooking oil

Method :
1) Heat cooking oil in a wok at medium high heat. Add garlic and saute till fragrant.

2) Add malabar spinach and give it a quick stir. Add water and continue to stir another minute.

3) Add salted egg and let it simmer for a while. When the egg is set, add soy sauce and mix well. (Take note that you should adjust the soy sauce accordingly as sometimes the salted egg can be quite salty. As for me, I did not add any salt to it as I have added bamboo salt into my soy sauce).

4) Remove from the heat and serve at once.

 Hope you like this simple recipe.  Enjoy!!
