Natural Relief from Peripheral Neuropathy during and after Chemotherapy

GINGER COMPRESS for hands and feet.  Many cancer patients experience peripheral neuropathy, damage to the nerves, as a side effect from chemotherapy. This treatment can be used during and after chemotherapy.  Grate 3 inches of root ginger into a bowl/foot bowl, add boiling water and let steep until cool enough to submerse the hands/ feet. Soak hands/feet in the bowl until water is lukewarm. Remove hands/feet and dry. This same infusion can be used again if within the next 24 hours, leave in fridge until needed and then heat in a pot (but do NOT BOIL). Discard after the second treatment. Please Note: If you are suffering from numbness, please check temperature with your elbow to avoid the water being too hot.
