The Wet Sock Treatment: A Natural Remedy for Cold and Flu
It may sound like a very bizarre treatment, but it works! It triggers the body’s defenses, according to Jamey Wallace, ND, Clinic Medical Director at Bastyr Center for Natural Health.
What You’ll Need
A pair of thin cotton socks
A pair of thick wool socks
What To Do
Step 1. Soak the pair of thin socks in the bowl of ice water. When the socks are completely wet, remove them from the water and squeeze out the water.
Step 2. Put your feet into a bucket or bathtub of hot water to warm up your feet. Soak them for about 10 minutes until they are hot.
Step 3. Remove your feet from the hot water and quickly dry them off. Immediately put on the cold wet cotton socks, then cover the wet socks with the dry wool socks.
Step 4. Go straight to bed. Make sure your feet are covered at all times, otherwise the treatment will not work.
If you wish you can massage your feet with rosemary oil for added benefit. Rosemary oil will help greatly with circulation.
