Cabbages are an excellent remedy for joint pain, so here is how to prepare a cabbage compress:

Ingredients
Cabbage (preferably organic red)
Aluminum foil
A bandage or gauze

Instructions:

Step 1

Place cabbage leaves, preferably from red cabbage, on a cutting board and cut out the hard stem with a sharp knife. Use a wine bottle, rolling pin or meat hammer to gently bruise the leaves, releasing some of the cabbage juices.

Step 2

Wrap the cabbage leaves in foil and place in the oven for a few minutes to warm them and make the leaves pliable. Test temperature to assure they are warm, not hot, to the touch.

Step 3

Layer the warm cabbage leaves around the painful joint until it is completely encased with the leaves. If leaves feel too hot, allow them to cool for a minute before applying to the skin. Hold the leaves in place by wrapping with self-stick gauze bandage and cover the entire poultice with plastic wrap or aluminum foil to contain the warmth.

Step 4

Leave the cabbage leaves wrapped around the joint for at least one hour, and longer if desired. Using new cabbage leaves, re-wrap the joint at a later time or the next day for continued relief. The poultice can be left on overnight.

Step 5

Unwrap the cabbage leaves when the poultice cools and discard. Hopefully, you will feel less pain in the affected joint. If this home remedy works for you, it is an inexpensive way to treat painful joints without side effects.

If you prefer cold compresses, keep the cabbage leaves in the refrigerator, and apply them cold on the painful areas.
