Oxytocin is a neuromodulating hormone which is involved in childbirth, bonding, social behavior, trust and wound healing. Oxytocin is thought to aid in wound healing by reducing inflammation by decreasing certain cytokines in the blood. There have been several studies which show increased positive social interactions and increase in oxytocin levels. Oxytocin administration has also been shown to increase trust and decrease fear responses.

The Ancient Romans had a lot of strange beliefs, but I guess they were pretty successful for a while. I really wonder how they came up with that though… What led them to believe that animal excrement of any kind would have healing properties? The stuff the animal expended as waste. I suppose there are other instances of poop being used for things, though. Cow poop especially. True story. Aren’t people… Fascinating?
Chewing on willow bark does work. I remember this from scouts, a while back. That’s one less thing to worry about when you’re lost in the woods! …Assuming there’s willow.
-If you have any sort of sore in your mouth and you’ve sucked out the venom, the venom will more than likely get into your blood stream.
-Don’t ice down the wound either. It makes it difficult for the device (not person!!) to suck out the venom later.
