Cabbage is a vegetable that believe it or not possesses numerous healing properties. You may or may not have heard about them, but one thing is for sure. Cabbage leaves pull out diseases from our bodies, just like they are some type of magnet. They are a great ingredient in different meals and salads, but they are also very beneficial for the treatment of certain conditions such as thyroid gland issues, headaches and other.
Natural remedies are commonly used nowadays and are sometimes better than medicines. The best thing is that these natural medications mostly don’t have any bad side effects.
Cabbage can be mostly found in salad plates. But, did you know that there are other uses of cabbage other than food consumption?
Cabbage leaves can actually pull out the issues from our bodies just like a magnet. Here are some of the most famous uses:
Pain due to breastfeeding
It’s a very familiar natural remedy among breastfeeding mothers. When they feel a strong pain because of breastfeeding, they put compresses made of fresh cabbage leaves onto their breasts and the pain disappears. They immediately feel relieved after that. This can be done throughout the day and at night.
Rinse the leaves with cold water carefully. Then cut the stem from the center of each leaf.
Try fitting it to your breasts but without covering your nipples.
Place the leaves inside your bra.
Let the leaves stay for about 20 minutes or until they become warm. You can repeat the process if you feel the need.
Thyroid gland issues
Thyroid gland causes problems in many people around the world, but especially in women. This gland is exceptionally important because its hormones help the growth, metabolism functioning, and the functioning of the organs in the digestive system. If you have a problem with your thyroid gland and look for a solution to heal it, put some cabbage leaves on the place of your throat where the gland is located.
Cover these leaves with a bandage or a shawl, so they don’t fall. Sleep with the compress and remove it in the morning.
Sometimes you could hit your hand or leg and the place starts to swell immediately. Just wrap the area with fresh cabbage leaves. It is very important to tighten them with a bandage, so they don’t fall. The same goes for your ankle or if you have problems with swollen legs. Sleep with the compress if you want to achieve the best possible results from this treatment.
Apply a compress from fresh cabbage leaves onto the temples and onto the upper part of the head. Put a cap or a hat to keep the leaves from falling.
Never forget to consult a doctor before you decide to try natural remedies for any of these conditions!
