Struggling with an unbearable herniated disk pain? I don’t know the feeling how hard it is, until I saw my aunt kneeling because she couldn’t bear the pain anymore. Now, she follows a precise medication accompanied by exercises and a natural remedy given by my grandma. What can I say, she looks better!
There are several types of hernia, with several degrees of severity, and while some patients feel no pain, others complain of severe pain.
If you are among those struggling with severe herniated disk pain, just like my aunt, you can try the next remedy based on vinegar, clay and cabbage leaves. Each ingredient has multiple anti-inflammatory properties, helping you to ease the pain.
To prepare this hernia remedy you need the following ingredients:
- 5 tablespoons of clay powder
- 2 tablespoons of vinegar
- 1 glass of water
- 2 or 3 cabbage leaves
The amounts depend on the area affected by the inflammation. You can double each ingredient, but keep the proportions.
Method of preparation and application:
Mix the clay with vinegar and water in a glass or ceramic pot. Beware of plastic or metal utensils, as this neutralizes the properties of the clay.
You will get a creamy paste. If it’s too liquid and flowing, add some extra clay, and if it’s too thick add a few drops of water.
Before applying the paste, dip the cabbage leaves in boiling water for a few seconds, for kneading.
Apply the clay and vinegar mixture over the painful area, and put on top of it the cabbage leaves after they have cooled.
Leave the remedy to act for about 30 minutes until the clay dries.
You can repeat the procedure 2-3 times a day until the pain gradually slows in intensity.
