It works, it's natural, it costs nothing!
Warming Socks are right up there in my top 5 list of cold bustin' home remedies. This ol' time home remedy has helped myself and my family countless times to get us back on our feet faster. It helps us sleep better when we are sick and congested, and helps our bodies move through a fever more efficiently!
Between the socks and homeopathic remedies we have never had to take Tylenol for a fever - these work like a charm especially when you use them right away. (-:
Why do it?
- Warming Socks promote healing by directly activating the immune system. If you do it early (first sign of run down) you can stop many illnesses in their tracks. It is the category of "hydrotherapy" and this one works by increasing lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. The lymphatic system is a key component to our immune system and overall wellness. It is like the body's sewer system taking care of the body's waste products. Supporting the lymphatic system is a big help in getting you through an illness (viral or bacterial) with more ease.
- Effective for: sore throats, earaches, colds, congestion in sinuses, throat and lungs, teething pains, insomnia.
How to do it ...

Step 1: Make sure your body and feet are warm first.
Step 2: Wet cotton socks to ankle height in cool tap water and wring out till damp.
Step 3: Put the damp socks on warm feet, cover with wool socks(one or two pairs- you want it to be snug with cotton socks fully covered), go to bed and sleep tight.
