Clay is one of the oldest remedies in the world. Believe it or not, clay has been applied for centuries to multiple conditions to calm and naturally reduce inflammation.

Clay is very beneficial. After all, it absorbs water and toxins. Plus, it provides a large amount and variety of minerals through the pores of the skin.

  • Clay is used very simply. Just mix with water or some liquid and then apply to the skin.
  • Leave it for enough time for it to dry and then remove it with water. Don’t reuse it, since it absorbs toxins.


White vinegar

Vinegar, especially if it’s from apples, is a liquid that regulates the pH, stimulates circulation and reduces inflammation.

For this reason, it facilitates the recovery of an injury or discomfort that you may have when you apply it to your skin.

Plus, its nutritional value, including a large number of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, also makes it a very beneficial food for your diet.


cabbage water

Cabbage is a very humble vegetable that hides a lot of healthy properties. Among them, we highlight its anti-inflammatory and analgesic virtues. These help to calm many discomforts and inflammations, such as those caused by hernias.

  • To benefit from its healing power, you have to facilitate the extraction of its phytonutrients.
  • You can crush or blanch the leaves, or prepare a juice to apply through poultices.
  • If you combine this with its consumption, you’ll  multiply its healing properties.

Preparation of the remedy


To prepare this remedy for reducing hernias, we will need the following ingredients:

  • 5 tablespoons of clay powder (100 g)
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar (30 ml)
  • 1 glass of water (200 ml)
  • 2 or 3 cabbage leaves

The amounts will depend on the size of the area affected by inflammation. You can vary the quantities of this remedy as long as you keep the proportions in this recipe.

Preparation and application

To prepare the remedy:

  • Mix the clay, the vinegar and the water. Use glass and ceramic utensils and containers, not plastic or metal ones, so as not to remove the properties of the clay.
  • Then, you’ll get a creamy mass that’s ready to apply. If it’s too runny, add a little clay. If, on the other hand, it is too thick, add more water.
  • Just when we’re going to use the remedy, blanch the cabbage leaves (put them in boiling water for a few seconds).
  • Then, apply this remedy on the entire inflamed area. Place the boiled cabbage leaves over this. Be careful not to burn yourself.
  • Let it act for either half an hour or until the clay dries.
  • You can repeat the application two or three times a day until you notice an improvement.
