What a wonder you are. I read what you said and thought it was the craziest thing. I tried it and my knee, which had been horribly swollen for months, had immediate pain relief and within a week, all of the swelling went down. I forgot to write a thank you (this was about a year ago).
Well, this week, I hurt my ankle. I did the usual (ice, elevation, immobilization, etc.) then I remembered Cabbage leaves. Put one on there, wrapped it up, and Bingo! The pain subsided in 20 minutes and I was pain-free all night. I don't know why it works, but it does!
Thank you for sharing. I DID say, "Oh my Goodness!!! "
Oh My Goodness! Cabbage is fabulous in keeping arthritis out of your knee!! Just pile the leaves on your knee - front and back - after you have taken the spines out of the cabbage and used a rolling pin to release some of the juices. Then wrap it up with saran wrap - you might need two sheets of about 15" long. After you do that, wrap the whole knee up in a scarf and go about your business or go to bed. In the morning you take it all off - your cabbage will be wet which is a good sign - and your knee will not be swollen nor will it hurt and you can walk without any pain!!! Try it for about 10 days straight and you will be saying "Oh My Goodness!"
