REMEDY 2 – CAN YOU HEAL A KNEE INJURY NATURALLY? I DID! from Wendy Polisi
ESSENTIAL OILS TO HEAL KNEE INJURIES NATURALLY
Wintergreen: Contains 99% methyl salicylate, which gives it cortisone-like properties. Supports discomfort that is related to inflammation of bones, muscles, and joints. (Wintergreen should be avoided by anyone with seizures.) (Got this oil here)
Peppermint: Anti-inflammatory properties helps damaged tissues. Has a soothing and cooling effect. (Got this oil here)
German Chamomile: Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic. (Got this oil here)
Helichrysum: May help clean the blood and improves circulatory functions. It is a potent anti-inflammatory. (Got this oil here)
Lemongrass: which supports inflammatory response, ligaments and tissue regeneration. (Got this oil here)
Frankincense: which is also an anti-inflammatory and immune support that is good for general healing. (Got this oil here)
HOW TO USE THEM
I made a rollerbottle with 5 drops each of wintergreen, peppermint, German Chamomile and Helichrysum. I applied that to the area 3-4 times a day. I layered on the Lemongrass and Frankincense two to three times a day.
- You must be consistent. This isn’t the kind of thing you can do when you remember and hope for the best. If you can’t be consistent you need to accept that natural remedies may not work for you.
- Consider your diet. Diet is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL to healing. I recommend a clean diet that eliminates inflammation as much as possible. No processed food. Stay away from triggers. (Mine are gluten and soy.)
- You Can’t Skip the Exercises. Everything else can help to reduce inflammation to the point that you can rehab your knee, but you are still going to have to do the work.
