SPRAIN: Warmth increases circulation and healing. Cold compresses reduce circulation and healing. Therefore, to promote healing to the area, apply warm compresses over a liniment made of leek.
To make the liniment, juice 1 leek and 1 tablespoon fresh raw ginger root (or blend and strain), and mix with either 4 tablespoons of raw coconut cream, or unheated-above-96° Fahrenheit fermented coconut oil, peanut oil or olive oil. For preferred healing, wrap the sprain in thinly sliced warm raw steak. To warm the steak, place it in a closed glass jar and immerse in a hot bowl of water (not too hot).
Following the same suggestions for bruises will heal sprains (see Bruise, page 235).
