A lot of women in European and American countries use this incredible and very efficient method. YES, that’s right – they place cabbage leaves on the breasts.
Did you know that the leaves from cabbage can reduce the swelling of your breasts and alleviate the discomfort and pain that can be caused by breast feeding? Also, the method is really helpful in alleviating stress and pain caused by wearing uncomfortable bras.
• How it works –cabbage leaves and magnets have the same properties! They can pull out all ailments and diseases from the body.
• Studies confirm that if you are breastfeeding and you place cool cabbage leaves on the breasts, they will not only soothe the pain, but they will also help you alleviate the swelling.
How to Use Them:
This is what you should do – first, put the cabbage in the fridge for about an hour. When it becomes cold enough, peel the outer layers and throw them. Next, pull two inner leaves for use. Then, you should wash the two leaves in cool water. Make sure they are clean and free from residue, dirt or pesticides.
Then, cut the stems of the leaves so they can fit on the breasts properly without covering your nipples. Put the clean, cool cabbage leaves on the breasts. Wrap them around the breasts, but let your nipples stay exposed. This will help the skin around the nipples stay intact and dry. Let the leaves stay on for twenty minutes or until they are warm. Next, remove the leaves from the breasts. Repeat if you need to.
And DON’T FORGET– if you are breastfeeding and want to use the cabbage leaves to reduce the swelling, stop the treatment once you see that your breasts are better, and the swelling is eliminated.
