ALUMINIUM FOIL FOR BURNS
Aluminum foil is able to ease the pain caused by burns which are result of fire, hot water, oil, steam and other liquids.
In case your skin is unharmed, you can dry it with some soft, clean towel.
In case the skin is damaged, you will need to absorb the water from the wound with the help of sterile gauze.
Then you will need to smear a thin layer of ointment, but make sure that you have dried the wound well, in order to prevent the gauze from sticking to the wound.
Cover the burn with sterilized gauze.
In case the burn is not open you should put aluminum foil over it. But if it is open put gauze first and then you can apply the foil. At the end you will need to fix it with a bandage.
Don’t remove the foil until the pain is reduced.
FLUE AND COLD TREATMENT
Some people want to avoid antibiotics when they have a cold, so aluminium is the right solution in fighting infections. This foil treatment can help you get over a strong cold in a just couple of days in a completely safe and natural way.
Wrap your feet with 5 to 7 layers of foil before putting a cotton or paper between the layers.
Before removing it, leave it to stay for an hour.
Repeat the procedure 2 hours later using a new wrap.
Again leave it for an hour.
Repeat the same procedure another time after 2 hours brake.
Continue this treatment for seven days.
Which side to use?
Both sides of the aliminium foil are used just in different ways. For warming and keeping the heat in the body part you are treating, use the shiny side on the inside, directly to the skin, while keeping it the matte side on the outside. In the treatment for cooling and heat protection, chage the sides of the foil.
However, many health practitioners believe that both sides of aluminum foil are just as efficient so it makes no difference which side you use.
