What folks are saying about Shawnee Moon Sun Dance ointment!

“I cut my knee on the coral reef, while snorkeling in Hawaii. I used the Sundance ointment on the cut but the band-aid only covered part of the cut. The next morning I woke-up to find the portion covered with the ointment was nearly healed closed. The part without the ointment was red and swollen. Now I always travel with the Sundance or Kid Stuff ointment. Don’t leave home without it.” -Terri F., Missouri

“My name is Larry and I live in S. Fla. I would like to tell you about a very positive experince I rencently had concerning a basal cell carcinoma I had cut ot of the side of my nose. It was over 7 mm. diameter. The depth was 2/3 the thickness of the nasal wall from the outside to the inside of my nose. After it was cut out……it took two tries to remove it all…..I was given two options by the dermetologist/surgeon. She would either make three equally spaced cuts from 1/2″ to 1″ long toward the edge of the hole and stitch up the three flaps. This was guaranteed to leave a scar similar to a cross section of a broadhead arrow. I’m not real vain about my looks, as Hollywood doesn’t even have my phone number, but I still opted for her second option. The second idea was to keep a bandage over it for a 6 week healing period. I told her not to worry about any antiseptic as I was sure I had a jar of the magical cure at home. I packed the open hole twice a day with Sundance unguent. I saw her one week later. It was progressing beyond her highest expectation and the hole had closed to half the size. She nearly freaked but would not admit any “non-conventional” medicine could possible heal something so crucial.. When I saw her in another week it was healed and closed to within a spot the size of a pencil lead. You could barely see there was ever a hole there. It took two weeks total using Victoria’s Sundance unguent when i was told by a highly respected dermetologist it would be 6 weeks. I guess it just goes to show you can’t believe everything you hear.” -Larry W., Florida
