"And adventurer so damaged [damage equal to or more than twice HPs] from
a blow is in a shock, and can do nothing until healed. He can try to
Heal himself."RQ 3 Standard Rules Book, p.19

I know this is not very clear again but I sounds to me as the adventurer
could do nothing but heal himself (or at least try it). Maybe this is
something like an instinct.

Then I would like to make a small experiment in Glorantha. I wound
miself with a knife deeply in my leg. Now I take dirt found in an
Orlanth temple and put that stuff into my wound. Then I heal my wound
with the dirt inside. After a while what has happened ?
