Moist heat can be used to relieve your headache and reduce any swellings in your feet instantly. Moreover, a warm salt compress is always an easy way to increase blood flow.
This treatment can be a bit tricky to understand, as you know increased salt intake causes swelling and increased blood pressure. On the other hand, salt compress has a reverse effect. It helps to eliminate toxins and excess fluid through the body acting as a strong diuretic.
Warm salt compress is also very beneficial when dealing with muscle pain. Additionally, it helps to retain the moisture in the skin cells, provides cell regeneration and detoxifies the skin.
If you are dealing with a severe headache, try this amazing compress as soon as possible:
At first, prepare a gauze lining or cotton cloth. Fold it in eight layers, so it would match the height of the forehead and the length of the head. Heat 250 ml of water to 60-70 °C and dissolve 2 teaspoons of salt in it. You should end up with a solution that’s 8% saline.
Now with lukewarm water wash your forehead, ears and the back of your head. Afterward, soak the gauze in the saline solution and gently squeeze out any excess liquid. Then, wrap it around the head, neck, and include the ears if desired. Lastly, secure the compress over with a cotton cloth.
Although you should feel relief within a few minutes, leave on the compress for at least 20 minutes. After removing the compress, rinse your forehead, ears, and neck with warm water.
Additionally, here is a similar method to reduce swellings in your feet:
Dissolve 0.5 kg of salt in 5 liters of cold water. Soak a soft cloth in the solution and gently squeeze to remove excess liquid. You need to apply it directly to the lumbar area of your back, and leave it for about 20 minutes.
Repeat the procedure every night before you go to bed, for 10 days in a row. The swelling will disappear thanks to the frequent urination, which begins soon after the first treatment.
