ointment use on the 2nd degree burn, as documented by a physician.
Active Ingredient: Tetracycline (3%)

Relief of intense pain and estimated 10X reduction in recovery time (12 hours) compared to typical recovery time (4 to 6 days) resulted from Bwell use on the 2nd degree burn
Diana, a 38-year-old female, suffered a burn on her thumb while cooking on 12/19/2010. The pain was intense, a “10” on a scale of 0 to 10, in her estimation. She applied an ice pack for a few minutes, and obtained some pain relief. After removing the ice pack, the pain returned. Her friend, a physician, was with her at the time and determined that the burn was a 2nd degree burn. He recommended that she try Bwell. The surprising result was that the pain subsided (from a “10” to a “3” within three minutes following the topical application of Bwell. After two hours, the pain subsided to zero.
First-degree burn: A burn that affects the epidermis only, causing erythema without blistering.
Reasons for accelerated healing of burns when using Vitastem™ ointment
Bwell ointment has been shown to be an effective healing agent when used in other applications including the treatment for diabetic lesions in a diabetic wound-care center.
A normal (without Bwell) recovery for this type of 2nd degree burn would typically take 5 to 10 times as long. This accelerated healing evidence is not completely understood, but the probable reasons for this are believed to include (1) the action of the active ingredient, tetracycline, to fight ALL the bacteria in the region of application. The human body harbors thousands of bacteria types under normal conditions, most of which are harmless under normal conditions, but may become weak pathogens in injured tissue; and (2) the dual carrier action of this product to quickly take the active ingredient deep into the injury. The characteristics of a dual carrier drug-delivery system have been documented.
The human body has 10 times more microbes than cells, or an estimated 1,000 trillion bacteria for each one of us. A square centimeter of skin can have up to a million bacteria. The vast majority of these microbes are benign, helping digest food in our gut and crowding out their disease-causing brethren. But some of these bacteria develop parasitical strategies that make us sick. Ref: http://www.hhmi.org/bulletin/spring2004/ finlay/finlay2.html
According to the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) of Maryland, we each house two to five pounds (1.0 to 2.26 kilograms) of live bacteria inside our bodies. Bacteria come in good and bad varieties, or more to the point, can be helpful or harmful. While the vast amount of attention is given to bad bacteria because of their potential for creating illness, humans share a necessary symbiotic relationship with many types of helpful bacteria. Some are crucial to our very survival. HHMI reports that the relationship between the different strains of bacteria and the human body is a dynamic one, constantly adjusting to changing conditions. Ref. http://www.wisegeek.com/how-much-bacteria-live- in-our-bodies.htm
A healthy human epidermis is colonized by roughly 1,000 species of bacteria. Ref: http:// articles.latimes.com/2009/may/29/science/sci-skin-bacteria29
From the above referenced information, three important points have been established:
- Most burns involve the skin.
- The human body has 10 times more microbes than cells. A square centimeter of skin can have up to a million bacteria. A healthy human epidermis is colonized by roughly 1,000 species of bacteria.
- The relationship between the different strains of bacteria and the human body is a dynamic one, constantly adjusting to changing conditions.
The changing conditions are dramatic when the skin is traumatized during a burn. This is particularly true for 2nd degree burns in which the formation of blisters change the physical characteristics of the burn area. Two changes are dominant -- the localized accumulation of body fluid (in the blister), and a localized increase in temperature. Both of these changes are exactly the conditions (warm, wet environment) that many bacteria need to prosper and multiply. The low oxygen concentration in the blister is presumed because the fluid is not flowing blood, and blood is the fluid that supplies life-sustaining and healing oxygen to tissues in the body.
Why does Bwell ointment appear to shorten the healing time of burn blisters?
- Bwell contains an ingredient that has been used by surgeons to promote live-sustaining and healing blood to tissue recovering from surgical trauma. This has been used in plastic surgery where accelerated healing is extremely important for the purpose of decreasing scar formation.
- Bwell contains Tetracycline-ABC which is believed to be the world’s strongest broad-spectrum topical antibiotic.
- An obvious advantage results from using a broad-spectrum antibiotic on skin that is colonized by roughly 1,000 species of bacteria.
Additional supporting case-study data
Additional supporting case-study data is on file with the manufacturer. The additional data includes 3rd degree burns. These data also show that Bwell ointment appears to dramatically shorten the healing time of burn blisters. Physicians or others who wish to review these data can request same from the manufacturer. Requests should refer to “Jennifer’s confidential report on burn case data/photos.”
Relief of intense pain and estimated 10X reduction in recovery time (12 hours) compared to typical recovery time (4 to 6 days) resulted from Vitastem™ ointment use on the 2nd degree burn, as documented by a physician. Based on this and other case study results (not included in this report), we expect similar results on similar burn injuries.
