Sugardyne-The Poor Man's Antibiotic

Warning: The following treatment is for use when professional medical care is delayed or outright unavailable due to any number of emergency or catastrophic situations. Always seek professional medical care when it is available.

In any survival or emergency situation, there will almost always be wounded. Because of this, infection control is of paramount importance. In an ideal situation, modern antibiotics and antiseptics will be available. But what about the less than ideal situation? Is there anything one can do to treat infection? Yes. All you need is providone-iodine solution (Betadine) and table sugar (sucrose). With these two ingredients, you can make a treatment called Sugardyne.

I first learned about Sugardyne when reading the book Ditch Medicine by Hugh L.Coffee. It is an excellent medical book for any preparedness library, especially for those who have emergency medical training. The book focuses on medical treatments in the field under less than ideal circumstances. It is available from Paladin Press, a company whose catalog is a must have for any student of preparedness.

Sugardyne is a mixture of granulated sugar (sucrose), the same stuff you put in your coffee and tea, and a solution of providone-iodine (Betadine). This mixture is placed directly into wounds. This product was manufactured for a short time by Sugardyne Pharmaceuticals of Greenville, Mississippi. It is my understanding that the company was forced to close by the United States Food and Drug Administration. This was supposedly done to “protect” the public. Despite the fact that we are all now “protected”, do not be alarmed. Sugardyne is easy to make.

When making Sugardine, the providone-iodine (Betadine) liquid should be added to the granulated sugar in amounts so that the sugar takes on the red color of the providone-iodine liquid, but does not loose it’s crystalline form. You don’t want to add so much providone-iodine liquid (Betadine) that the sugar turns to syrup or liquid. Why? Because of the scientific basis for this treatment. High concentrations of sugar are deadly to infectious bacteria because the high concentrations of sugar cause osmotic shock in the bacteria. In simple terms this means the sugar pulls water out of the bacteria, dehydrating them, and this inhibits their growth. So if you add so much providone-iodine (Betadine) solution that the sugar crystals go liquid, you won’t be able to tell when to put in new Sugardyne. As the Sugardyne pulls water out of the bacteria by osmotic shock, the sugar crystals become liquid, letting you know its time to add new Sugardyne.

Before using Sugardyne, the wound should be cleaned and debrided as with any other wound. After this, the Sugardyne should be placed into the wound. Again, after a period of time, the sugar crystals will become liquid. When this occurs, the liquid should be washed out of the wound and more Sugardyne crystals applied.

Warning: When the Sugardyne crystals inside the wound become liquid, it is essential that the wound be cleaned and fresh Sugardyne crystals be added. If left in or on a wound, the liquified sugar crystals will encourage bacterial growth.

Deep wounds are treated differently than surface wounds.

DEEP WOUNDS- pour the Sugardyne mixture directly into the wound. Again, when the sugar crystals turn to liquid, the wound must be cleaned and more Sugardyne crystals applied.

NON-DEEP WOUNDS-treat with gauze impregnated with providone-iodine solution (Betadine) with a layer of Sugardyne (about 1/4 inch) applied to the side of the gauze that will come into contact with the wound. Again, when the sugar crystals turn to liquid, it is time to clean the wound and apply a fresh bandage with fresh Sugardyne crystals.

If you have sugar but no providone-iodine solution (Betadine), you can use the sugar by itself. Just make sure you put new sugar crystal in the wound after you rinse out the sugar already in the wound that has turned to liquid

I want to again emphasize that this treatment should not be attempted when professional medical care is available. With that said, it’s worth noting that there have been many anecdotal reports of Sugardyne healing wounds that have been unresponsive to standard antibiotic and antimicrobial therapy.

So what should you do if you fall into that category? You have a wound that is not healing despite standard treatment. I recommend you do the following:

1. Talk with your doctor (M.D. or D.O.) about a trial using Sugardyne. If possible, go to an internet search engine like and type in the word Sugardyne. You will find a large number of articles. Print them out and give them to your doctor. Doctors are very scared of lawsuits due to predatory lawyers, so if you want them to try something new, you need to present them with some basic information about Sugardyne and the scientific basis of it’s mechanism of action, killing infectious bacteria by osmotic shock.

2. Have your doctor run some standard blood test to check for diabetes and low thyroid. Diabetes and low thyroid are two major problems that cause poor wound healing.

3. Increase your intake of vitamin C through the use of supplements. Vitamin C is the precursor of collagen, a substance necessary for proper wound healing. Take 1000 milligrams of timed released vitamin C with every meal. If you can get it, take the vitamin C in it’s non-acid form, sodium ascorbate. (When vitamin C is taken as sodium ascorbate, there is no need for the timed released form.) Vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate is available from Bronson Pharmaceuticals.

  1. I used this on myself when I had a very large 3rd degree burn on my arm . It started growing new skin in 4 days, as apposed to 14 days with other types of lotions or salves. Great stuff. It also healed my dog's skin infection when nothing else would. Germs can't live in that environment.
