Home Remedies and Herbs for Gangrene

What is Gangrene?

Gangrene is a condition that causes the affected area to develop a loss and death of tissue. Usually, gangrene forms on the extremities, such as on the limbs, toes or fingers. Gangrene can also form internally and affect muscles and organs.

People with underlying conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arteriosclerosis or poor circulation are more likely to develop gangrene due to constricted or damaged blood vessels.1

 


What Causes Gangrene?

 

Gangrene causes occur when an underlying condition is affecting the ability for blood to circulation. When blood flow is restricted to a particular part of the body, then the tissues in that area start to die off because they don’t receive oxygen for cellular regeneration. As these tissues die off, it causes gangrene symptoms in that area due to decaying tissue.1

Gangrene can also occur due to an infected wound or ulcer that hasn’t healed. If the wound doesn’t heal quickly enough, then the tissues around the wound will start to die off and decay.

 


Gangrene Symptoms

 

Gangrene symptoms on the external body are quite noticeable. Usually, you will notice a numbness or tingling, which are the initial signs that gangrene may form.1 As the tissues further die off, you may experience the following gangrene symptoms:

  • Skin discoloration that produces black, purple, brown, blue or red skin
  • Blisters and swelling in the affected area
  • A noticeable division between the living and dead tissue
  • Leaking sores that emit a foul odor
  • Cold or cool skin
