Cabbage is great for reducing swelling around areas of:
- Superficial ulcerations
Simply slice off the spine, and remove some leaves. Steam until soft and once cool, gently squish (a rolling pin works well) to break out the juices. Since the leaves naturally fit around the body they can be apply directly to the affected area, and then secured in place by tying a towel. Keep on for at least 20 minutes; more repeats = more benefits.
Warning: I thought it would be cool to make my girlfriend a cabbage bra. She didn’t have mastitis, but dropped a cup size. Now she won’t speak to me.
