Ginger poultice for joint pain arthritis
By Wayne Leo
1. Grate fresh ginger onto chux.
2. Fold the chux into a square shape making sure the ginger is in the centre of the chux and does not fall out of the cloth.
3. Apply to the aching joint.
If you have an aching joint, it will feel like your skin is burning, but the ginger will not burn. The skin might get very hot, but that is because the ginger is pulling all the debris out of the joint and assisting to get rid of it through the skin. The joint stops aching because of this anti-inflammatory action of the ginger. When the inflammation is reduced out of the joint, the pain is reduced.
