Cabbage Leafs help to relieve swelling

Mar 24, 2016 3:06 AM

So I had to try it. I am recovering from having 9 Titanium screws put in and my foot straightened in January. I am still really swollen and read about putting cabbage leafs on the area. And omg it works! I am so totally blown away!!! I have only done it twice but I am very happy with the results!!! There are videos on youtube that have instructions...try it!!!

Omg. I don't have any cabbage. The first thing that went through my mind was "I'll make a coleslaw poultice for the back of my neck!"

I don't mean to make light or be flippant in any way, shape or form but because I had that image of my own self and a poultice I'm sharing it in hopes it may bring you a wry giggle over a crazy lady's antics (meaning me).

I don't have any screws or surgery or anything an my heart goes out to you. I am SO glad you got relief with the cabbage leaves and hope it works for others as well. Sometimes the mysterious "old" medicine has a firm foundation in results!!

Love and prayers for your continued recovery!

GrandmaD, ALL Crazy people are welcome!!! Laughter is a wonderful drug all by itself. That is why I am trying to get the administrators to set up a chat room so we can chat in real time and be able to keep up and speak to those we want or need to. It's a blast!! I love to laugh. I get my peeps together in chat and we laugh so hard that we cry. It's fun. It does get serious from time to time and we all take a swim in our pity pool from time to time. However, we need to do our best to get out, dry off and let the sunshine warm out shoulders and out hearts. Find a reason every day to smile at something or even someone. (Just be careful who that someone is because they may think you're wacko..LOL!!😜) I thought the coleslaw poultice was hysterical.. .. Have a great day GrandmaD, from one crazy lady to another.{{Hugs}}💕😂
