Ginger water as compress for treating rheumatism and arthritis
Since ancient times, ginger has been used to heat the body when someone has a cold or flu. Ginger is still used for treating, as an effective antithrombotic agent, rheumatism, sciatica, arthritis and similar conditions, and is very effective.
You can use ginger in two ways.
The first method of using ginger is to make ginger water, take half a tablespoon of minced ginger and place in 150 ml of boiling water. Allow to cool and drink twice a day for a month.
If you want to use ginger as a compress, then we suggest you make wraps that are excellent for the treatment of rheumatism and arthritis.
Grind about 30-40 grams of dried ginger or about 100-140 grams of fresh ginger and put it in the cloth bag. Place the bag in a pot of boiling water and leave for about 5 minutes. When you apply a compress of ginger water, the water should be warm. Soak a cotton cloth in water, squeeze out excess water and apply to the affected area. Wrap with dry towel to keep it warm. Replace the lining of ginger water every 5-10 minutes for a maximum of 3 times. You can use the same ginger water to massage the painful area, which will improve circulation.
Ginger water compresses helps with rheumatism, arthritis, back pain, menstrual cramps, toothaches, stiff neck, kidney stone pain and asthma.
