I wouldn’t wish or want anyone to be bitten by a snake because it’s not a good experience at all because it is so painful and hurts so much.
But then… we might be victims which is why we should know the right thing to do in order to extract the poison and prevent it from spreading round our body.
Snake venom is very deadly and poisonous and it is capable of killing someone in hours if nothing is done.
Our forefathers back in the days made use of some natural herbs to get themselves healed of anything be it sickness or whatever and it worked just fine on them which is why I will tell you about a natural stuff that can extract snake poison.
Have you ever come across or heard about that stone called Jerusalem black stone? It’s black in colour and somehow small in size. It can be used to extract the poison gotten from any bite including snake bite.
Let me tell you how to use it.
When someone is bitten by a snake, get the stone and ask the person to sit down. When the person has sat down, place the stone on the area that was bitten.
Due to the sticky nature of the stone when placed on a poisonous surface, it will only fall off after it must have extracted the entire venom.
Once that happens the person is good to go.
You may have heard about first aid practices such as applying cold compresses or electric shocks, cutting and sucking out venom by mouth or with a store-bought extractor, wrapping a tourniquet, or even making a poultice from the snake’s head. Here’s the thing—none of these remedies work, and they often cause more damage.
“There’s only one viable treatment currently, and that is going to a hospital and getting antivenom,” Hayes says. The longer the venom is in your system, the more damage it can cause to your tissue. That means the sooner you receive treatment, the better.
So the best tools to keep on hand are the ones that will get you to a hospital as quickly as possible: a cell phone, a good friend, and a set of car keys.
If a snake strikes, first take a good look at the culprit (or even snap a smartphone photo) so you can help doctors identify the species, but don’t delay or try to track the animal—an expert should be able to diagnose your attacker from the bite itself. This will tell the hospital which type of antivenom you will require. Next, arrange for a ride to the hospital, either by ringing up a rescue unit or having your friend drive you at a brisk speed. En route, you should call ahead to the hospital so they’re ready for your arrival.
