To everyone that suffers from pain in their hands due to carpal tunnel or arthritis pain, and probably even more. All YOU NEED ARE 1 to 3 leaves of this humble and amazing plant. Rinse and boil them until they turn pink. The water will probable turn green, depending on how many leaves you are boiling. When leaves are pink, pour the water in a bowl and put your hands above the bowl, (Your hands are going to receive the steam, DON'T PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE BOILING WATER. YOU'LL GET BURNED!). When there is no more steam coming out, just throw the water away.
WOW, My grandmother always had this plant in her home. And we never had any idea that it would help with hands pains. she suffered for a lot of years with arthritis and didn't need to if we had only known about this plant Thanks for sharing.
I wonder if you could wait for the water to cool enough that you could touch it safely & make compresses to use on other areas of the body like knees & backs. Everybody has back problems it seems. Wouldn't hurt to try it I suppose.
Thank you for this information. I knew wandering jew had to have a medicinal use; just didn't know what it was. Now I do. Thanks again and Happy Holy Days. Theresa
I wonder if you can take a picture and show me the Jew plan, thanks a lot.
Also known as "inch plant".
