I stopped eating meat, and started eating cabbage everyday, yes gas is part of what is expected, but my bowel movement is now regulated, my system is cleansed, stool is no longer dark and there is no unbearable smell. my weight is going down. And most of all I feel better physically. I juice 8 oz twice a day. And eat 1/4 pound per day. Basil and Fennel and black pepper for flavor.
re: cabbage for PMS symptoms -- Each month when my breasts become sore I use cabbage leaves in my bra over night and the next morning the soreness is gone.
I can recommend cabbage leaves on engorged breasts as a wonderful nurse in the Maternity, Annexe, suggested this odd remedy after the birth of my child, when my milk came in, and my breasts tripled in size! It really does work.
I used raw cabbage juice to cure my stomach problems many years, and now and then should i ever have stomach problems of any kind, i have some cabbage juice, that takes care of the problem.
Eating Raw Cabbage for stomach pain. Also used the cabbage leaves to relieve the pain in my breast after my baby was born, and to dry up the flow of milk. It stopped the stomach pain from fibroid tumors. I believe it will completely heal my stomach if I continue to eat both the red and green cabbage raw. The Lord told me to do this to relieve the pain and it worked! I never knew about the extensive healing properties found in the cabbage before.
I eat about 1 cup of raw Savoy Cabbage a day with a meal. It relieved my roller coaster episodes of diahrrea in one day...and constipation for the next week. Also it helped with PMS. I can think more clearly, I have a higher energy level, my mood is improved, and I feel really healthy.
Raw Cabbage salad has cured my dry, flaky skin and fatigue : ). I started having raw cabbage salad every morning after exercise for the last few weeks and I wasnt feeling tired the whole day and to top that my skin started glowing & feeling smooth .... !! I sure do love cabbage and now its like a ritual for me to have a bowl of raw cabbage salad every morn`!
Cabbage helped decrease the swelling in my breasts due to engorgement. Nothing else worked. So, years later I decided to try it for breast swelling after breast augmentation. It also helped for that...though not as noticeably.
A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with GERD and I suffered from acid reflux and heartburn. The medication prescribed by the doctor rather worsened my situation and I suffered a number of side effects from it. I came across a site suggesting that drinking raw cabbage juice cures acid reflux and other problems related to the stomach, such as ulcer.I did further research to confirm this and decided to give it a try.
The general suggested daily dosage is about a quart [800ml] of raw cabbage juice to be taken about 4 times daily. I found that rather too much and I started with 400ml [100ml x 4].I noticed great improvement and after one week I reduced the dosage to 300ml [100ml x 3]. After about 3 weeks of the whole therapy, I decided to take only 200ml a day. Those with stomach ulcers or acute cases of acid reflux might need to take the full dosage.
I have stopped drinking cabbage juice since about 10 months now and I haven't had any serious reflux problems. For those who would like to try it, PLEASE NOTE that it is said to have strong impact on the thyroid glands [the more reason why I never consumed 800ml a day!]. Not to mention the stench - it is better stored in an air-tight water bottle and kept in the fridge. Good luck to all, and thanks for the great site.
Raw cabbage and cabbage juice relieves joint pain and swelling in my hands, and it works fast.
I had a huge hematoma on my left shin from a bad fall last year. My Physiotherapist said it was the largest hematoma he had ever seen and was not responding to treatment as it should. He then suggested to me to go home and buy some big fresh dark green outside leaves of a cabbage, smother my hematoma with Voltaren cover over with the cabbage leaf and then wrap in plastic or glad wrap as we call it here. I did this every night and it shrunk in size amazingly everytime I did it. Only at night when you go to bed though it does not work as well during the day but could try it. I must tell you the doctor who sent me to the physio was absolutely amazed how this worked on my hematoma when traditional methods had failed and also can I say saved me from an operation where I would have probably been left with a rather large dent in my leg!!!
