Natural Remedy to Reduce Swelling
This is an effective natural remedy that reduces swelling by drawing excess fluids out of the tissues using soda crystals (sodium carbonate). Use to reduce swelling and promote healing after an injury to the knee, ankle, elbow, or in most other joints where an injury has been sustained.
When purchasing soda crystals ensure you buy the crystalline form, rather than washing soda (the pre-ground powder-like form). In Australia they are available online, just Google "Bexters Soda Crystals". For those outside of Australia you can purchase Thrasher Hydroponics sodium carbonate from Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/Sodium-Carbonate-Washing-Soda-Crystals/dp/B00HETS7LE
Just wanted to tell you about how much the swelling on my father's knee has reduced after using the soda crystal method. Its gone right down, should of taken some before and after pics for you to see how much." Cheers, Paul
*** Precautions ***
If you have a skin condition, or sensitive skin in general, it is not recommended that you use the soda crystal pack as suggested in this video as it could be an irritatant to your skin.
Washing soda packs can be applied every other night but no more than 3 times per week, until the swelling is reduced or removed.
Washing Soda is recommended for use where there is swelling without heat, bruising, tenderness or redness.
IF BEING USED ON A JOINT, NEVER REPEAT IT TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW, ALWAYS DO IT EVERY SECOND NIGHT. THE DRAWING EFFECT OF THIS PREPARATION IS SO STRONG, IF DONE EVERY NIGHT, IT MAY DRAW THE LUBRICATING FLUID FROM THE JOINT.
