People with sore joints often experience discomfort in the wrist area. There are many traditional and popular methods of dealing with such pain. Often there are people who wear a woolen thread on their wrists.
Why is woolen thread useful?
Wool thread mysteriously affects capillary blood circulation, because the inflammatory response begins with a slowdown in capillary blood flow. Also, the woolen thread serves as a source of small static electricity. You can hear a lot of stories that magicians and sorcerers came up with all this, but in fact, the use of woolen thread for pain in the joints is just a method of traditional medicine. A woolen thread tied around the wrist improves blood circulation, accelerates the healing of wounds and cuts on the arm, and helps with tendon healing. After the thread is removed from the wrist, the joint may hurt for several hours.
Wool is considered the healthiest, most hygienic and excellent thermoregulatory material. The structure of the wool allows human skin to breathe. In addition, this material also has beneficial healing properties. Even in ancient times, people got rid of toothache or headache, pain in the lower back, by applying natural unpainted wool to the sore spot. Also, in the old days, premature babies were put in sheep's wool. The thing is that the fibers of natural undyed wool, sheared from a live animal and untreated with any chemicals, are covered with animal wax. It is called lanolin. It makes up to twelve percent of the weight of the wool. Lanolin is also specially mined to be used as a base for cosmetics, creams and ointments. If you use natural wool in bed, then the lanolin contained in it, which dissolves at 35-37-degree body temperature, easily penetrates the skin. This substance has a beneficial effect on muscles, joints, spine. Lanolin relieves pain and stimulates blood circulation. The thermal conductivity of wool is slightly lower than that of some textile materials.
Protection with a woolen thread in magic
Magicians and sorcerers often use red woolen thread in their practice. It is believed that the red woolen thread absorbs all the negativity, like the evil eye. Burning it, a person supposedly frees himself from everything bad. A red woolen thread is wound around the left wrist. At the same time, a person must say: "Protect me, collect all the negative on yourself." Every three days, you need to burn a thread in the flame of a candle with the words: "You absorbed everything, protected me, now give everything negative to the fire, cleanse yourself and me, so be it." The woolen thread absorbs all the negativity that blocks the energy in the meridians of the hands. In the same way, woolen thread on the wrist helps to get rid of many diseases, both from the heart and from the lymphatic meridian on the thumb.
