It has been scientifically shown that aluminum foil can work as an excellent substitute for chemicals and expensive medications.
Both Russian and Chinese healers have been widely using aluminum foil for its beneficial properties, such as relieving various health issues naturally.
The fascinating method of healing has been even described by the psychotherapist Wilhelm Reich, a student of Sigmund Freud, the eminent Austrian neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis.
The extensive evidence gathered by the alternative doctors over the course of couple of years shows that aluminum foil has the ability to eliminate the following issues:
- Muscle pain
- Pain in the spine, neck, arms, knees, feet, joints,
- Postoperative scars
- Effects of inflammatory processes
According to A.V. Skvortsov, a Russian scientists,
“Special energy-structuring resources are used during healing, such as products of aluminium foil.
The human organism contains special stem cells, which continuously interact with the Earth’s energy field.
This field is deformed due to various reasons, disrupting the energy supply to the stem cells.
The foil’s surface reflects the Earth’s energy field and magnifies it several times as a huge focusing magnifying glass, which restoring the disrupted interaction between the cells and the energy field.”
First Aid with Burns
Pressing or wrapping aluminum foil over the affected area can easily relieve pain from burns caused by fire, hot water, steam, oil, or other liquids.
- First, expose the burn area to cold running water for a few minutes.
- If the skin has been damaged, absorb the water from the wound by using sterile gauze. If the skin has not been damaged, simply dry the area with a soft and clean cloth.
- Once the wound is dried, apply a thin layer of remedy for burns onto the affected spot. This prevents the gauze from sticking to the wound.
- Take a dry piece of sterile gauze and cover the damaged part of the skin.
- Then, cut a piece of aluminum foil and put it over the gauze (if the burn is open) or over the sore portion of skin (if the burn is not open). Wrap the foil around the extremities, in case the burns included legs or arms.
- Fasten the foil with a tape and let it work until the pain disappears.
Wraps against Muscle and Joint Pain
Chinese and other alternative doctors recommend aluminum foil for therapeutical purposes. This involves treating neck, back, arms, legs, and joint pain. It has been proven to be very effective in treating gout, heel aches, sciatica, and rheumatoid arthritis. Last but not least, aluminum wraps are found to help with pain caused by post-operative scar tissues.
Place the aluminum foil onto the sore spot and secure it with a band-aid or a bandage. Let it work during the day or overnight. In case the pain involves fingers, elbows, arms, knees, or arms, wrap the foil around the extremity and secure with a band-aid, bandage, or scotch tape.
Perform this procedure over the course of 10-12 days and make a one-week or two-week break. If the pain doesn’t subdue, repeat the treatment once again.
Protection against Post-Amputation (Phantom) Pain
According to some researchers, the pain which usually appears after an amputation of an extremity, also known as phantom pain, can be relieved with the help of aluminum foil. According to the study done on amputees and published in The British Journal of Pain, the pain was significantly milder in people whose limbs had been wrapped with aluminum foil in comparison to people in which this treatment wasn’t used.
All you have to do is to wrap the aluminum foil around the amputated part of the body, secure with tape, and remove when the pain subdues or disappears for good.
Treatment against Flu and Cold
The aluminum foil treatment has proven very successful in combating infections. As a matter of fact, this treatment can help you cure cold within couple of days, without the use of over-the-counter or prescribed drugs. To use this anti-inflammatory treatment, adhere to the following instructions:
First, wrap the foil around the feet in 5-7 layers and place paper or cotton between them. Let the wrap work for about an hour before you remove it. Place a new wrap two hours later, and let it work for an hour once again. Make another two-hour break and put the third and final wrap afterwards. This treatment should be performed over the course of a week.
Against Traces of Insomnia and Fatigue
Every woman wants to look fresh and rested after a sleepless night. Even though this seems impossible, the trick that world-famous makeup artists use can be more than helpful.
All you have to do is to cut the aluminum foil into strips and keep the refrigerated for a few hours. Put the frozen strips onto the areas you want to work on, such as the eyelids, cheeks, or the entire face. Let them work for a while, until you feel them relaxed.
Believe it or not, this simple trick will help you eliminate the traces of stress, fatigue, and insomnia which are usually visible on the face.
Which Side to Use?
When it comes to this treatment and which side to use, opinions are divided. Some scientists claim that for heating and keeping the heat you should use the shiny side on the inside, directly onto the skin and keep the matte side on the outside.
For protection from the heat and cooling, you should keep the matte side on the inside and the shiny one on the outside.
However, other group of scientists believes that both sides are equally effective and it doesn’t matter which side you use.
