substitute for harmful and expensive drugs.
Russian and Chinese healers have been using its
beneficial properties to relieve various health
problems simply and naturally.
psychotherapist Wilhelm Reich, a student of the
famous and respectable Austrian neurologist and the
founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, referred to

According to the experience that alternative
doctors have gathered over many years, aluminum foil
can successfully and quickly eliminate:

The Russian scientist A. V. Skvortsov described its
"Special energy-structuring resources are used
during healing, such as products of aluminum foil.
The human organism contains special stem cells
which continuously interact with the Earth's energy
field. This field is deformed due to various
reasons, disrupting the energy supply to the stem
cells. The foil's surface reflects the Earth's
energy field and magnifies it several times as a
huge focusing magnifying glass, which restores the
disrupted interaction between the cells and the
Wraps against muscle and joint pains
According to the Chinese and many other
alternative doctors, aluminum foil should be used
externally for therapeutical purposes. This
treatment may alleviate various ailments such as
pains in the neck, back, arms, legs and joints. It
is also effective with sciatica, rheumatoid
arthritis, gout and heel aches. It has also
been proved to relieve the pain on the
post-operative scar tissues.
Lay the aluminum foil on the sore spot and fasten it
with a bandage or a band-aid. Leave it for the
entire day or overnight. If the pain involves arms,
elbows, knees, legs or fingers, you can wrap the
foil around the extremity and fasten it with a
bandage, band-aid or a common scotch tape. Apply
the therapy for 10 to 12 days and then make a one to
two week break. If the ailments persist, you may
repeat the therapy.
Treatment against flu and cold
Aluminum foil may be a great ally in the fight
against infections. A treatment with aluminum foil
can help you overcome a strong cold in just a couple
of days without the unnecessary use of harmful
Perform the anti-inflammatory
treatment in the following way: Wrap the foil
around the feet in five to seven layers. Put cotton
or paper between the layers. Leave the wrap in
this place for about an hour and then remove it.
Two hours later, place a new wrap and also leave it
for an hour. Follow up with another two-hour
break and finally place the third and the last wrap.
The treatment should take seven days.
First aid with burns
The pain from burns caused by fire, hot water,
oil, steam and other liquids may be very
successfully relieved by pressing or wrapping
aluminum foil over the burnt spot.
Procedure: Expose the burnt part of the body
to cold running water for several minutes. If the
skin is not damaged, dry the area with a clean, soft
cloth. If the skin has been damaged, use a
sterile gauze and use it to absorb the water from
the wound. After drying the wound, apply a thin
layer of an ointment for burns on the affected area.
This will help prevent the gauze from sticking to
the wound. Cover the damaged part of the skin
with a dry piece of a sterile gauze. Cut a piece
of the aluminum foil and place it over the sore
portion of the skin (if the burn is not open) or
over the gauze (in case of an open burn) and fasten
it with tape. If the burns involve arms or legs,
you can wrap the foil around the extremities.
Leave the foil until the pain subsides.
Protection against post-amputation (phantom) pain
Some research suggest that the pain which
appears after an amputation of an extremity (known
as phantom pain) may be relieved by aluminum
foil. The British Journal of Pain
published the results of a study performed on
amputees. It confirmed that the pain was far
milder in the group of people whose limbs were
wrapped by aluminum foil compared to the group in
which such a therapy was not applied.
this treatment, wrap the aluminum foil around the
amputated part of the body, fasten with tape and
remove when the pain subsides or disappears. Against traces of insomnia
If you wish to look fresh and rested after a
sleepless night, try using the advice of
world-famous makeup artists. Cut aluminum foil
into strips and place them in a freezer for several
hours. Place the frozen strips on the areas you
want to refresh – your face, cheeks or eyelids.
Leave them there for several moments, until you feel
they have relaxed. The traces of insomnia,
fatigue and stress which usually reflect on the
facial skin should soon disappear.
Which side to use?
Opinions differ regarding which side of the foil
should be used in this treatment. Some scientists
advocate this procedure: for heating and keeping the
heat place the shiny side on the inside, directly on
the skin, while keeping the matte side on the
For cooling and protection from the
heat – the matte side should be on the inside, and
the shiny side on the outside. Still, other
scientists claim that it doesn't matter which side
you use, since they are equally effective.
