My brother gave me a book, Kevin Trudeau "Natural Cures" "They" Don't Want You
to Know About.

Anyone read it? I seen him on TV this morning.

I can tell you, some of the old Remedies of MY Grandmother (Very Polish) used
worked on me as a child, I remember specific things my mom said this is what
Grandma used to do.

And it was all Natural.

how Much does the Polish Population rely on Medical technology Vs Natural
Remedies?

I still use some of the Remedies my Grandmother used for certain things. but
sometimes, I think its a matter of Patience, and how fast things work depending
on the ailment.

I know for coughing they make a syrup with onions and sugar and let it sit for a while.
They use a lot of different types of herb teas for certain ailments.
Homeopathic medicine is all natural, and gaining popularity.

MY mom made me, as a child, use onions and lemon juice with sugar, it tasted
nasty, but I was so busy making faces, I didnt think about coughing! lol

I had warm milk with sryup, which dont sound great at first, but its actually
pretty good.

that dont sound half bad, especailly the honey part :)

Who here has had the indegestion reliever?

about a 1/4 cup vinagar, in big glass, with some water, about a 1/4, and one
tablespoon of baking soda , -do over the sink and drink the bubbles!

it foams up fast, my mom used this instead of tums or rolaids, and pepto bismal.

makes ya burp something awful! but settles the stomach.

trick is to drink as much of the bubbles as fast as you can so it will make you
burp! lol

Hot milk, honey and crushed garlic mixed together tastes a bit er...garlicy but seems to work well.

Actually an embarassing confession to make regarding home remedies.

The other night I woke up with a severe ear ache.. which i feared was a middle ear infection. Thankfully it wasn't however, the next day ear was still in pain and swollen inside. So under my flatmates missus' suggestion, i placed a piece of raw onion in the outer part of the ear and went to bed the next day. I awoke sans ear ache and no sign of the piece of onion, although my ear still felt a little thick. Never the less of I went to work. When i returned home in the evening, I felt something in my ear and remembered the missing piece of onion. So upstair to the bath room with some tweezers.

OH MY GOD..... The smelly browing piece of onion had gone into my ear.
It removed it and felt like a really smelly muppet. No wonder people weren't sitting next to me on the tube.

uuuurggghhhh disgusting.

LOL well, home remedies do work, maybe you should have squeezed some
toothpaste in your ear too to get rid of the onion breath :) lol

Kidding, had to say that. all is good.

Garlic is used for number of things, but I know one which is works really well
all by itself, it lowers blood pressure, my brother uses it all the time, and he
has high BP 's, so when he does try to take care of himself, he uses this, and gets
a A+ when he goes to his checkups.

But, the downside of it, you need heavy perfume, and or stay home till it wears off!

It's too bad that we did not pay attention to the older folk's remedies, so that we
could pass them on.
