Subject: re engorged breasts
cabbage leaves are brilliant for any inflammatory condition...ie. hot and painful.
they reduce the inflammation very quickly, try them around sore throats and swollen inflammed joints.
if your breasts are engorged but not actually inflammed try drinking garden sage (salvia) tea, cold in large amounts. thius tends to dry up your milk.
sage tea is also the best treatment for painful, lumpy breasts....*but avoid it during pregnancy, except with expert advice.
