The Magical Linament for Trauma with Rene Ng

Jul 29, 2015 05:09PM

In addition to being a favorite drink, wine is also the primary ingredient used in linaments that treat injuries, trauma and pain. These linaments are especially good for bruises and for treating ankle and other sprains. Oftentimes, these linaments are soaked in with a variety of herbs to treat different forms of injuries, swellings and pain.

Generally, the best wine for these linaments is Rice Wine, but your basic red wine will also suffice. The linaments are primarily used topically. To treat a bruise or a sprain, apply a little of the linament onto the affected area and gently massage the area. Repeat this for about 15 minutes each time.

As always, it is suggested that you consult your personal physician before attempting to perform treatments on your own.
