What is a Wheat Bag
Have you ever wondered what a Microwave Wheat Bag actually is? Here I am to tell you everything that you need to know from what materials are used to what it can be used for.
From the name, you can obviously tell that a wheat bag is made out of natural wheat grain – this allows them to be heated in the microwave or cooled in the freezer. They are an excellent method of pain relief as you can buy them in different shapes and sizes and place them in the area that you need them to be. As the wheat grains are individual grains, this allows them to be heated quickly and release the warmth slowly to last as long as possible so heating them in the microwave for a couple of minutes can last you a long period of time! And don’t worry, you can use these wheat bags over and over again – just make sure that you read the guidelines given for the best way to maintain and use your WheatyBags before use.
You can use your wheat bag hot or cold, either method will still allow natural movement of the grains as they begin to settle around the area of your body making them comfortable as they help to ease the pain that you are feeling. The heat therapy dilates the bloody vessels inside muscles, which allow you to increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle, to help the damaged tissue heal. Wheat bags are often seen as a much more safer product than a hot water bottle. If you choose to use your wheat bag cold, this slows down the inflammation and swelling which may occur after an injury – this is a great way to help pain instead of using a bag of frozen food from your freezer! A wheat bag is a fantastic natural therapy, which is non-invasive and drug free.
