The Amazing Powers of Cabbage Leaves: Eliminate Different Illness Including Sprains, Strains, and Ulcers

Cabbage is one of the healthiest vegetables. It is loaded with various health benefits and a main source of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin K, and vitamin B6.

It is also a very good source of dietary fiber, folate, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, and manganese.

Many years ago, older people prefer to use cabbage as an alternative medicine to different kinds of illness including, sprains, strains, and ulcers. Moreover, cabbage leaves have also been used to relieve joint pain caused by arthritis or sports injuries.

Even though the effectiveness of this treatment has not been scientifically proven, cabbage leaves have been used for many years as a cheap, natural remedy to treat joint pain and inflammation.

Cabbage leaves for Gout

People who are suffering from gout, who have tried this treatment, claim that it really helps alleviate or even get rid of the pain they experienced due to their condition. What you should do is to take a few cabbage leaves, put them in a plastic bag and store it in the freezer.


Once you start feeling pain, take the cabbage leaves, then place them around the affected area, wrap your feet with a towel and allow your warm skin to unfreeze them.

The gout-fighting chemicals contained in the cabbage leaves will enter your skin and dissolve uric crystal deposits. Even if this doesn’t happen, the frozen leaves will at least calm and relieve the inflammation.

Cabbage leaves for swollen feet treatment

Cool white or green cabbage leaves in the freezer until they are chilled but still pliable. Wrap them around your swollen feet and sit with your feet elevated for 30 minutes. Cabbage has great water absorption qualities and will draw out excess fluid in the feet.

NOTE: It is rare to experience an allergy to cabbage, but if you have any swelling or itching to the skin where the cabbage bandage is placed, remove the leaves immediately. You should consult a health practitioner if the irritation continues or worsens.
