Natural Remedy to Reduce Inflammation – Chickweed

This story happened just a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes it is needed to get little sick to remember that natural medicine is all around, growing literally under our feet. We are glad to share effective folk prescription, recently successfully tested by beautiful Russian fairy-tale maiden. Margarita’s story:

Once I caught some kind of virus that caused a cold and then an otitus… I woke up at night from ear pain and then I couldn’t sleep. I didn’t know what to do; I never had such inflammation before. I can get to the ENT specialist only in 4 days… I didn’t dare to do alcohol compresses, as the temperature began to rise. And then the second ear became inflamed. My mother-in-law, who grew up in the country, advised me put chickweed to ear. We have enough chickweed in the garden. Best time to pick up chickweed is morning, when there’s dew. You need to wash the roots and do not rinse dew. Take a small bunch and turn it into small chaplet – that size would be convenient put to ear. Take a square of cotton fabric (10-15 cm), make a slit in the middle for ear. You need to put the chaplet on the fabric and put on the sore ear with chickweed to the skin. Then put on a headscarf. Also on top you can tie a woolen scarf. But I dispense with it. Just half an hour of wearing headscarf, I felt that the ringing in my ears and most importantly the pain is gone. And I slept the night in peace.

After 4 days I went to the reception, the doctor sent me for a blood test to understand the degree of inflammation. The analysis showed that inflammation is almost out, so even the antibiotics are not prescribed. I just washed nose with water & salt and wore a kerchief. A week after one of the disease ears began to hear and later the second one.

Mother-in-law also told me that she used to treat the thyroid through chickweed. Only three days – goiter has passed. Chickweed also relieves different swelling, tumor, “bumps” on the joints. It’s not just grass, but a real miracle.
