Everyone has them. Something out of
the ordinary, but it works.
My family, it was sugar and water for
hiccups. It was taught to me by my
favorite old Aunt Em. And it worked and
still does. You put a teaspoon of sugar in
our mouth and drink a glass of water fast.
Of course in this day and age with sugar
being a no no, and the principal I would
believe, is that you are holding your breathe
as you drink down the water to get rid of the
sugar, is why it works. So just holding your
breathe would work too. But not as comforting.
Also have tried the Vick for everything. And that
works. Put it on your feet, and you will stop coughing.
Of course we all had it put under our noses as kids.
Or on our noses. But a friends swears by it, and I
can attest to it working on sores as well. Sure cure an
infection I had on my finger. Kind of reminds me of
the father in My Greek Wedding, who used Windex for
everything. But I am telling you, it works.
And I know that eating coconut will stop diarrhea.
Saw a booklet in my mail when is trying to get me to
buy their book, and get 3 free, of cures. Some of them
I really have to laugh at.
Gin soaked raisins cure for aches and pains. Well,
you mix 1 pint of gin with a pound of raisin, heck
yea, you are going to feel better, or no pain anyway.
Nothing else either.
Oh yea, forgot the Russian one... You mix vodka with a
nutrient (you have to send $29.95 to find out which nutrient)
and it will grow hair on your head. Probably you are so drunk
you think you see hair up there.
Then there is the garlic and Cognac cure. For the bird
flu. Well, after that, who cares if you got the flu or not.
My grandfather in the 50's said that Gerital was the
best. It made him feel so much peppier.. Then I read
several years later, it had a great deal of alcohol in it.
So yea, he feel good. lol...Who made these up? Alcoholics
Then there is get rid of warts. You take your old dishrag,
and buried it in your neighbors field and two days later
your warts are gone. That and no headaches with tomatoes
on your feet for 2 days. Got to love those old remedies.
I heard that there are 3 things that will sell easy.
1. was something to grown hair on a bald headed man.
2. something to increase a man's manhood.
3. something that will have you losing weight with in weeks.
Use to be 4.. that one was to make women's breast bigger,
but since implants that ad doesn't do so well.
So what is your family home remedy?
