When I was a kid and something ailed me (or my siblings) I think we got better faster because we were afraid of whatever cure my grandma was gonna pull out of her purse.
Here are a few that I remember, the thing is, they all worked.
Athletes Foot Remedy
Use Garlic & Olive oil for Athletes foot, just mince a few fresh garlic cloves mix them with 1/4-1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil and then apply liberally to the affected area.
For Migraine Relief
Wash a potato then slice it thinly. Apply the slices over the eyes, forehead and temples. Let them set for 15 minutes. This alleviates headaches rapidly.
Cure swimmers ear by slightly diluting white vinegar with distilled water and applying 5-10 drops into each ear, 3x’s a day until the affliction is gone. The acidic properties of the vinegar kill the bacteria.
Relief from Bugbites
Apply plain peppermint based toothpaste to bugbites to instantly relieve the itch and burning.
Poison Ivy Relief
Use the inside part of a banana peel for instant relief, just rub the inside area of the peel on the affected area to relieve itchiness.
Crush some fresh ginger and fresh basil leaves together into a paste, add a touch of honey and drink the concoction every 2 hours to relieve a fever
