It's best to start the warming socks treatment on the first day of the illness and continue for three consecutive days. This technique is even more effective when on a treatment plan including proper hydration, rest, nutrition, and herbal supplements.
One pair of thin cotton socks
One pair of thick wool socks
Sink or bucket filled with very cold (or iced) water
Tub or bucket filled with very warm water
A warm bed
Step 1: Get ready for bed
Step 2: Put cotton socks in a sink of very cold, or iced, water. Soak for a minute to saturate the socks then wring them out so that they do not drip.
Step 3: Place your bare feet into a tub or bucket of very warm water.
Soak your feet as long as you want, but make sure the water stays warm and so do your feet.
Step 4: Dry your feet with a towel and put the wet cotton socks on your feet.
Step 5: Immediately pull the dry wool socks over the wet socks. You want the wool socks to completely cover the cotton socks.
Step 6: Go to bed right away. Make sure your feet stay warm.
In the morning your feet will be warm and dry. Symptoms of your cold and head or chest congestion will be diminished or gone.
