How to prepare a cabbage wrap and heal your ankles?

The procedure is very simple, and takes only few minutes.

You will need the following ingredients:

Red organic cabbage (white will also do if you can’t find red), oven pan and aluminum foil, and a rolling pin.

Wash the cabbage, and peel off its outer leaf. Use a rolling pin to squeeze its juice out, heat the leaves wrapped in aluminum foil, and place them afterwards over the affected area. Use gauze to cover and protect the spot, and leave it there for one hour max. Repeat this as often as you can, ideally three times per day.
