Hey Panos, if you thing orange juice is the cure, more power to you. I hope it works for you.
What I really don't get is your need to shout from the mountaintop about your ideas, while totally discounting anything else and encouraging others to do so. Why can't we all just have our own opinions and hopes for something that works? I know you didn't always feel this way about the hydrogel since you were a moderator on the facebook page, so what gives? You're not going to change anyone's mind be being close-minded about something.
I think the board should be an avenue for sharing ideas rather than arguing about different techniques in the abstract rather than using concrete facts.. After all, don't we really just want to get rid of the scars that bother us? In the end, if scar-free healing comes we'll all reap the benefits and it won't matter who was right or wrong.
Humans have a history to healing scarring for thousand of years.
So i have the need to shout the treatments that have worked for others.Avocado is working on my 2 scars i am putting it.
So yeah i feel the need to shout for others.
We dont know if hydrogel is working.
To my knowledge there is no method, scientifically tested or otherwise, that has ever reversed scarring completely to give back sebaceous glands, hair, sweat glands and healthy skin morphology. If you think doing what you're doing works then great, heck, maybe it does.
But the human mind is clever, so clever that it can create perceptions that aren't based on a shared reality. For example, a ton of people on here have scars they think are debilitating while someone else might look at them and not even realize they're there. It's the same with a treatment that uses only the eye test. You look in the mirror and you see improvement and I think that's great. Truly. At the end of the day a person's view of their self is what's most important.
But on the other hand without a proven methodology and comparing something to a control there's no way to definitely state that avocado, orange juice or any other natural healing treatment is actually and improvement over the natural remodeling your healthy skin and scars go through over the course of a lifetime. If there's research out there that says otherwise; I'd definitely want to read it and try any method with such support. But I've looked into avocado, orange juice and colloidal silver and so far came up with nothing.
I guess the difference with the hydrogel for me is that there is quantifiable evidence to support the idea that it creates a scar-free wound healing environment (granted, in mice). There's a one to one comparison; here's how the mouse healed with this, here's how it healed with nothing added and here's how it healed with the hydrogel. Unlike any other method, tested or anecdotal, it had tangible results that could be counted and observed: hair follicles, sebaceous glands, sweat glands, skin density etc. That's the reason I'm, and many others I suspect, are excited about the hydrogel. True, we don't know for certain it will work on humans, but we do know for certain that it works on a mammal in a way that no other treatment has ever worked before. Skepticism is fine, but if we approached every idea with the point of view "we don't know that this will work" we likely wouldn't have things like flight, computers, cars etc.
Again, I really hope your methods are working for you. One question though: are you using a holistic approach with orange juice, colloidal silver and avocado? I only ask because you seemed to indicate that colloidal silver alone would give the same results as the hydrogel so I'm not sure why you would need avocado if that's the case. Anyway, good luck the healing.
