Talk about sprained necks and we all know how immobile the necks become once they get sprained. Not only is movement inhibited but the pain is unbearable. A sprained neck does not need to spoil your day any longer. You may be able to get rid of it and the usage of painkillers and pain relievers is not being advocated.
This is why, to the rescue come the carom seeds. Highly beneficial in relieving asprained neck, the carom seeds are known to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. A hot compress by the compress pouch can be hugely beneficial to ease out the condition.
How to make the hot compress?
Take a clean and germ free cotton cloth and add a heap of carom seeds to it right in the center. Lift the loose ends and tie them up making a pouch. Place this pouch on a thick bottomed pan and heat it to bearable temperature.Lightly press the compress on the affected area letting it radiate the heat and the warmth in the pained area.Compressing two to three times can ease the condition in a day without you having to waste the day and not consuming medicines. And the best part is that the carom seeds used do not have to be wasted atleast for this turn. Once cooled you may just want to reheat itand use it again. Cooling in between the compresses does not hamper the healing properties of the seeds in the pouch.
Carom seeds have been used in alternative medicine for a long time and have other medicinal properties. Used for common remedies for treatment of common cold and pregnancy related issues, carom seeds are also used naturally to increase lactation in new mothers. The best thing about carom seeds is that they are completely natural when consumed and do not cause any allergic reactions whatso ever. Over consumption of carom seeds may cause bloating and constipation but that is a case only when too many have been consumed.
An active ingredient of Indian cooking, carom seeds are too effective as immune boosters and hence proactively used.
