Here are the two home remedies for cervical spondylosis from the Danube Valley people.
2 Home Remedies for Cervical Spondylosis
1. Hay Bath Cervical Spondylosis Remedy
In old folk European medicine, the cure for cervical spondylosis was alternating hay baths and herbal cataplasms with oat straw baths and cataplasms. Let’s start with the hay baths remedy. For this, you need 2 handfuls of freshly cut hay.
- Add the hay into a pot with boiling water, and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the fire and strain it well (leave the hay infusion aside).
- Put the used hot hay in a cotton gauze bag and place it over the painful areas on your neck and back.
Add the hay infusion into your bathwater (at 36°-37°C). Take 30 minutes baths every other day. Crushed cabbage leaves poultices are just as good as the hay ones, especially if you don’t have freshly cut hay available. Alternatively, follow the oat straw remedy. To prepare this remedy add one handful of oats straws to 10 liters of water and simmer for 30 minutes. Strain the decoction and pour it into your bathwater (at 36°-37°C). Use the hot and wet oat straws to make cataplasms that you apply on the areas that hurt.
Follow these simple home remedies for cervical spondylosis for 10 days straight, by alternating the hay baths and oat straw baths, and cataplasms. Alongside these remedies, you can also do the infused oil massages, by following the steps below.
2. Cervical Spondylosis Remedy with Herbs
This remedy is also good for all types of rheumatism, sprains, or luxation. This simple treatment doesn’t just soothe the pain but also heals the core of the problem. So, this is what you need to do is combine together the following dried herbs:
- 30 g of marjoram
- 30 g rosemary
- 30 g of St. John’s wort
Put the herbs in an amber glass jar/bottle and pour 500 ml of virgin cold-pressed olive oil over them. Seal and leave the jar to soak in a sunny place for a whole month. If sunlight is not available, place the bottle nearby a heat source. Strain the infused oil using a clean piece of gauze, pour it into a bottle, and store it in the fridge. Use the oil to massage the sore areas affected by cervical spondylosis daily.
