A team of researchers in Petaluma has managed to synthesize and stabilize super-oxygenated water, a substance with such incredible healing powers that it has been flippantly termed "the water of life". While the benefits of this substance are many, it has been quite expensive to make, and had almost no shelf life.

While Oculosis' "Microcyn" had been used for treatment of diabetic ulcerations in trials in other countries, it recently received important FDA approvals here in the US. As a now-controlled diabetic with early-stage foot neuropathy, I find this very reassuring. Even when my sugar is well within norms, such as my current a1c of 5.1, I still have problems with slow healing of wounds. A simple cut or scrape takes forever to finally heal, and scars no matter what I do. I dread ever being seriously wounded or needing major surgery, but perhaps if it ever happens, my local hospital will be stocking Microcyn or a generic equivalent and I'll get through it okay-- the stuff has truly impressive wound-healing properties (pdf).

Searching on "electrolyzed water" finds many interesting sites, including this reasonably cogent discussion of its types and properties. Of course, take it with (ha ha!) a grain of salt, since the folks hosting the page sell equipment to make the stuff.
