- Scar Tissue
- "Most extensive burns, as well as wounds in which large areas of skin are lost, are routinely grafted as soon as possible. This is a long and always painful process because of two characteristics of scar tissue: contraction and tenderness. In the healing process scar tissue contracts, leading to deformity and to some interference with the normal range of movement, particularly when the area involves underarms, groin, elbows, knees, or the skin of the neck. Also, scar tissue is tender and often painful to the touch. It sometimes forms excessively, becoming heaped up, red, and itchy.
- "When vitamin E is used, any scars which do appear contract very little or not at all, and are not tender. Vitamin E prevents scar tissue from heaping up, or if that has already occurred, vitamin E will take away the redness and the itchiness. Often vitamin E diminishes old, unsightly scars.
- "Vitamin E has a bacteriostatic (bacteria-limiting) action which is most useful in treating large burns and other large denuded areas, recent or chronic. For example, it allows the old, infected bases of chronic varicose ulcers to throw off the gross infection and, along with its oxygen-conservation abilities, vitamin E promotes the formation of healthy granulation tissue over which skin can grow and spread. Such healthy granulation tissue can sustain the life and growth of the skin cells falling on it from the surrounding intact skin surfaces. many such ulcers heal by this type of self-grafting.
"Vitamin E dilates small capillaries, speeding up their extension into granulation tissue, and into the edges of chronic ulcers. It also accelerates the opening up of collateral vessels around areas of major vessels, whether arteries or veins, that have become narrowed. . .
- "Because vitamin E has the ability to decrease the need of oxygen to all cells, to prevent unwanted clotting in blood vessels of all sizes, to open up collateral channels of blood supply, and to directly benefit all collagen fibers, its beneficial effect on such skin lesions as psoriasis and varicose eczema is not surprising.
- "Vitamin E cream or ointment will actually fill in acne or chicken pox scars on the face, often to the point where they are barely discernible. I know this as a father as well as in the role of clinician. While she was an undergraduate nurse, my daughter Karen had a very severe attack of chicken pox which left several scars on her face and forehead. Vitamin E ointment was rubbed in regularly and the scars disappeared entirely.
- "My wife Dorothy suffered many cuts around the face from the shattered glass of the windshield in a car accident. Her face was so badly cut up and sore that she couldn't bear to wash it. Instead she applied vitamin E ointment liberally, and within a week her face was healed. There are no scars. Incidentally, I believe that vitamin E is a must for the after-care of all plastic surgery scars.
- "I know that stretch marks on the abdomen that often follow pregnancy can be prevented or made much less obvious with vitamin E. Examples of the practical uses of vitamin E ointment, and of the oil squeezed out of capsules, keep increasing in the medical literature, as well as in lay publications. The direct application of vitamin E from the capsule is credited with clearing up such problems as plantar warts and itching scalp. Several mothers have reported that vitamin E ointment is their favorite remedy for diaper rash. One woman found that the ointment gave relief from a very uncomfortable chronic irritation caused by sweat and clothing under her large and pendulous breasts.
- "The effect of vitamin E ointment on the common moles which may be present at birth or develop later, can be quite remarkable, but persistence in applying it at night is necessary. Sometimes moles simply drop off, leaving a smooth surface level with the skin.
- "Journals Describe Response of More Serious Lesions
- The journals devoted to dermatology tell of a variety of skin lesions which respond to vitamin E therapy. Many of the contributions come from Ayers and Mihan of California, who explain how they became interested in vitamin E as a therapeutic agent:
- ". . . Milton Stout presented before the Los Angeles Dermatological Society in 1950, a woman with pseudoxanthoma elasticum, whose cutaneous and visual impairment were restored to near-normal following administration of vitamin E for a period of one year.
- "This astounding therapeutic accomplishment in a hitherto untreatable disease led us to carry out a continuing clinical investigation among our private office patients with some highly gratifying results.
- "He lists the following as responding to vitamin E: epidermolysis bullosa, Raynaud's phenomenon with gangrene, scleroderma, calcinosis cutis, Darier's disease (in combination with vitamin A), severe types of cutaneous vasculitis, subcorneal pustular dermatosis, benign chronic pemphigus, and some cases of chronic ulcers, discoid lupus erythematosus and granuloma annulare.
- "They also noted that vitamin E gave prompt relief to nocturnal leg cramps and various types of muscle cramps, exercise cramps, restless legs syndrome and intermittent claudication, and also one spectacular case of polymyositis, after the total failure of three immunosuppressive drugs.
- Vitamin E Inserts
- "The Canadian manufacturer of one of the best-known brands of vitamin E was asked if it really was good for "piles." He telephoned us long distance to ask about vitamin E for hemorrhoids and about making a vitamin E suppository. My reply was that it could be useful because hemorrhoids were really varicose veins, and since vitamin E often does help varicose veins the suppository just might be a useful product.
- "Evan doubted that vitamin E would be useful as a rectal suppository, but said he would like to see a vaginal suppository to use as a convenient way of treating altrophic vaginitis and other such conditions. He had been using vitamin E ointment to treat such problems and had found it very effective. Vitamin E suppositories -- known as "Vitamin E Inserts" -- have been on the market for years now and are really useful in both areas."

- The power of Vitamin E to treat and prevent heart disease of all types, whether coronary or rheumatic, depends upon four chief characteristics:
"Vitamin E seems to be a natural anti-thrombin in the human blood stream. It has been found by Zierler of Johns Hopkins and the U.S. Navy Research Department and Kay at Tulane to be a substance normally circulating in the blood of all men which prevents clots occurring inside the vessel. It is the only substance preventing the clotting of blood which is not dangerous. It does not interfere with the normal clotting of blood in a wound and with the normal healing process. Indeed, it actually accelerates the healing of burns and wounds.
"The second important effect of the use of Vitamin E is oxygen conservation. It is a natural antioxidant in the body. It has been shown by Houchin and Mattill, and this has been confirmed by many workers, to decrease the oxygen requirement of muscle by as much as 43 percent and makes the narrow stream of blood which gets through the narrowed coronary artery in many heart patients adequate to prevent the occurrence of anoxia (lack of oxygen), which is the trigger that sets off anginal or heart pain. Consequently, we have patients in Montreal who were once unable to walk half a block without the occurrence of angina pectoris but are now able to climb Mount Royal. Indeed, there is present in my audience today at least one such patient.
"The third major function of Vitamin E is the prevention of excessive scar tissue production and even, in some instances, the ability to melt away unwanted scar. It has been proven to function in this way in many areas of the bodyfrom the hand, in Dupuytrens contraction (Rochester, N.Y.)to urinary tract strictures (Johns Hopkins).
"It is a dilator of blood vessels. This was beautifully demonstrated by x-ray in rabbits injected before and after the administration of Vita min E by two workers in Florence, Italy. It opens up new pathways in the damaged circulation, therefore, and by-passes blocks produced by clots and hardened arteries.
"These four functions, all of them extensively confirmed in animal experimentation and human clinical work, make it the most valuable ally the cardiologist has yet found in the treatment of heart disease. It has no rivals. No other substance has this array of needful properties. This drug then becomes the first safe drug which can be given to patients suffering from the results of a clot in a coronary artery. There has been and still is no treatment at all for this type of case except two mildly useful drugs, which can be administered with great peril to the already precarious patient. Vitamin E replaces rest and reassurance, which have no authentic basis, with real help to the damaged, laboring heart itself. It is the key both to the prevention and treatment of all those conditions in which a lack of blood supply due to thickened or blocked blood vessels or a lack of oxygen is a major part or the whole story of the disease. As I have said, it has no rivals. No pharmacologist or internist can suggest another substance with all the powers and properties of this vitamin. God made it unique and we ignore it at our peril.
- From a speech delivered by Evan Shute, MD, Gynecology, of the Shute Foundation of London, Ontario, Canada. He and his brother Wilfrid Shute, MD, Cardiology, used natural Vitamin E complex successfully in treatment of over 55,000 patients during their respective careers.
