A NOVEL treatment involving honey has helped a Perth grandmother get back on her feet after sustaining leg wounds. Christine Mohr, 69, injured herself with a tree branch while gardening, with the wounds remaining three months after the incident. The retiree attended Silver Chain’s Kingsley clinic and received care from nurse practitioner Gordana Petkovska.
