Ice Cold Wet Sock Treatment
Say goodbye to migraines! Or perhaps you have a cold or flu? Does healing without drugs, shots or vaccines that destroy your immune system sound good to you? If so, read on!
And nope, this solution doesn’t require any healthy supplements, juices or hot toddies either. 😉 Although those can be supportive too.
This treatment however, does tap into nature’s powerhouse to rally your own body defenses to work FOR you to combat the sickness or eliminate the migraine.
It’s FREE too.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 pair of very thin cotton type socks
- 1 pair of thick wool socks
- 1 bowl of ice water
Seriously. Tried and tested by yours truly.🙋
How does it work? It stimulates your immune system, helps you to sleep 💤 and makes the migraine go away! As crazy as it sounds what have you got to lose by giving it a go? You don’t have to tell anyone else what you did. LOL
It works because your body now has a new job, to heat you up, so it shifts focus (forgetting about your migraine) and increases blood circulation, which also stimulates the immune system. Viruses stand no chance against an immune system that is ready to go!
By increasing the circulation it also decreases congestion. Congestion, runny nose and sneezing are the top reasons cold sufferers hit the medicine cabinet for those over the counter drugs that numb you up, right? You can’t breathe and that’s a mite important. Challenge with those over the counter drugs is they numb you up and block your body from doing it’s job to heal you. Runny noses and sneezing are beautiful things! They get the junk OUT of your system.
Another bonus is the amazing sedating effect, you’ll find yourself dosing off 20 or 30 minutes after putting the wet socks on. Perhaps because the pain is going away, you can breathe better, the fever is working itself out, or because your body is busy working and knows you heal better when resources don’t have to be spent keeping you up and about…either way, sleep is a wonderful thing.
Here’s how to do it:
- Soak the pair of thin socks in the bowl of ice water.
- Soak your feet in a hot bath for 10 minutes. This is very important for treatment to work, the hotter your feet and the colder the ice water, the better. If you’ve already been cozy in bed and your feet are very warm, you are set 👍🏼
- Wring out the soaking socks so they do not drip.
- Place ice-cold wet socks on feet.
- Cover with thick wool socks.
- Go directly to bed and relax. Do not pass Go! and do not collect $200.
You’ll fall asleep in 20 minutes or so and wake up headache free. Or be well on your way to relieving your ailment.
*If you have a cold or flu wear the socks overnight. During the night, you may wake up with your whole body wet from sweat. Fever is a great thing! It’s how your body fights off invaders. Simply change into dry PJ’s, leaving the socks on. The wet socks will be dry in the morning.
Repeat daily for colds and flu as needed. Start using at the first symptom to get a jump start and lesson the overall severity of your ailment.
I keep a few pairs of socks always on hand for whenever they might be needed.
Random side note: If you have dogs, I recommend keeping old socks on hand for them too as they are the best for wrapping injured paws and preventing licking. 😉 They have been a lifesaver for me.
I don’t wish a migraine on you by any means, but…I hope you’ll keep socks in mind the next time and share your results!
