There were many beliefs known through the ages that have fallen by the wayside in recent years, though they were common knowledge at one time.
For example, many of the healing methods used centuries ago are now virtually unknown. This was long before there were urgent care centers, hospitals, doctors’ offices, cancer treatment centers, and dialysis units on every major corner.
Healing was practiced by medicine men, women, and tribal shamans throughout the ages. These healers worked with healing using herbs, other plant parts, poultices and even surgery. They also were working with spirit!
From an internet search https://mountainview:hospital.com/about/newsroom/the-evolution-of-surgery#-:
6500 B.C.: Evidence of trepanation, the first surgical procedure, dates to 6500 B.C. Trepanation was the practice of drilling or cutting a hole through the skull to expose the brain. This was thought to cure mental illness, migraines, epileptic seizures and was used as emergency surgery after a head wound. Obsidian is a type of volcanic glass that was used for cutting during many ancient surgeries, including Neolithic trepanations, and still is used in operating rooms today. While modern obsidian scalpels no longer resemble flint knives, they can make much finer and cleaner incisions than steel scalpels and are rivaled only by diamond-edge scalpels.
I would never have wanted to have endured that but apparently people survived and were healed by this method in those days.

Excerpt from the Most Ancient Splints by I. Elliot Smith
“It is a well-known fact that among the ancient Egyptians excellent results were often obtained in the treatment of fractured bones, but it has never been explained what measures the archaic surgeons adopted to secure this success in the practice of their art. I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity of examining two sets of splints which had been applied to fractured limbs almost at the dawn of Egyptian history-roughly about five thousand years ago. These are certainly the oldest splints which have come to light in any part of the world.”
Tourniquets were used since about 200 years B.C. and became popular during the 18th century. Tourniquet use is still taught for bleeding injuries until the injured person can be brought to a doctor.
Are you aware that in the Old Testament of the King James Bible, Ezekiel chapter 16, verse 6, is a specific prayer that was used for centuries to stop bleeding? For a common nosebleed or wound not requiring sutures, this method can be used today!
Ezekiel 16:6, KJV: And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live: yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.
I was taught this healing verse in the Spiritualist Church when I was a teen. I was also taught to pray over the person, saying the verse three times in the name of the Divine Trinity of Spirit.
For non-life-threatening situations, I have used this, and it worked. I am most grateful I have never witnessed a bad accident or life-threatening situation.
Another old-time treatment for burns from scalds or touching something too hot, which I learned from my mom (as well as in church) is:
Pray the following as you blow the heat of the burn away from the body) and then blow frost back over the burned spot toward or into the body.
“An angel came out of the north blowing out the heat” (as you blow away from the body) “and bringing in the frost” (as you blow toward or into the body “in the name of the Divine Trinity of Spirit.” Repeat the process of blowing the heat away from the body and blowing toward the body, bringing in frost. Repeat this process while repeating the prayer until the sting and redness of the burn has abated in the sufferer’s body.
This definitely worked as I witnessed the following situation in our neighborhood when I was eight years old.
When a three-year-old boy who lived two doors down from us pulled a scalding pan of food off the stove onto himself, the neighbors ran into our house screaming for mom to “come quick, Sis, Danny is in trouble.” Mom raced down to discover the situation, with me tagging-a-long. As we went mom was telling me to keep quiet and stay out of the way. “I will talk with you later,” she said as we hurried down the street.
I don’t recall the month, but it was hot enough weather that Danny was only in a diaper and the contents of the pan were sticking to his body as he kicked and screamed.
Mom first gently removed the contents of the pan with cold tap water and then started working over the bright red flesh wherever the contents of the pan had landed on him, using the above prayer silently as she moved back and forth over him. She worked over him for longer than an hour; sometime shortly after she started, he stopped screaming and kicking, settling down, but she continued until the redness was totally gone. He never had a blister, sore or scar on his body.
Healing to the best of their abilities has always been in the minds of humans, who want to care for those around them. Infinite Intelligence has always been around us in spirit form and has worked to assist since time immemorial. Remember to use the knowledge when needed and to treat it as sacred information.
The Bible also tells us, “Do not give what is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine; lest they trample them under their feet and turn and tear you to pieces.” Matthew 7:6.
Best of success always in your work with the Infinite Intelligence of spirit or God force.
