Traditionally cold, snow and ice we are used toTo connect specifically with the cause of many diseases. And did you know that with the help of the cold (with little or no monetary investment) you can get rid of serious diseases that can hardly be treated even by medical treatment? This is due to the fact that in response to cold exposure, The body responds with a powerful release of heat, an intensive increase in blood circulation in the affected organ, an increase in immunity.
Our ancestors still long ago by trial and error found out that the cold (snow, ice) are excellent helpers in the fight against many ailments.
In our time, snow is successfully treated with joint and rheumatic pains.
Arthritis, almost not amenable to drug treatment, is easily healed by applying a mixture of snow and large salt to the joints (sometimes in only 1-2 sessions!).
To do this, mix 2 glasses of snow with 1 glassCoarse salt with a wooden stick. Put on the joint a small piece of natural tissue and on it - a layer of snow, top - a piece of polyethylene. Hold 4-7 minutes, no more! Compress to remove, salt to shake off and do not wash the area of application.
Attention! The use of this cold compress almost always causes strong painful sensations (aches, twisting). This state of pain must be endured, such is the reaction of nerve endings to severe cooling.
Keep in mind that the temperature of the snow afterAdding salt there drops from zero degrees to -8-13 ° C and therefore sometimes you can get a slight frostbite of the skin. Do not worry, it will quickly disappear, and this is a very small payment for complete release from pain, exhausted for months or even years.
Another recommendation for the treatment of arthritis is also similar in principle to the previous one, The snow compress is used.
Make several rotational movements inKnee joints (rotate knees clockwise and counterclockwise for 5 minutes) to warm them up. Fill the plastic bags with snow (in this case, without salt!), Tie them with fabric tapes to your knees and walk with these snow compresses for about 5 minutes on your lap around the room. Then remove the bags, cover the knees with warm scarves and just walk around the room for another 10 minutes to give the joints a light load.
Exercise every day until the pain disappears. For someone it will be enough and 3 days, for someone 3 weeks.
In summer, you can scrape a "snow coat" from the freezer or use crushed ice.
