Polish home remedies for cold, stomach ache, migraine?

11 Apr 2011 #31
I've been using synthetic melatonin for 7 years now on a nightly basis.

What dosage are you taking? I was using it for a while when I had trouble sleeping but not anymore. I was even going to the States to buy it as it was forbidden in Canada for many years. I read somewhere that the daily maximum is 5 mg.

Hi, can anyone help me out with the difficulties apropos of polish 'herbal remedies' ? I have seen on the net some herbal remedies like Urosan, etc.; however, these teas on the whole were priced around $ 4.95 while formerly I bought them tenfold cheaper. What does it mean? Is it an export price? Or else, in the Polish drug stores, the prices turned that fabuluous way and changed? I was particularly looking for Prostasan. Thanks.

this is actually not good. Honey is sugar and it helps the bacteria grow.

The ancient Egyptians used honey as an antiseptic and stuck in on wounds
they have found jars of it in tombs from the time of the Pharoahs and it is still perfectly edible
so sorry, no sale

the traditional Polish remedy is the juice of an onion with the juice of a clove of garlic mixed with sugar
to kill the taste

tastes revolting but works

my favourite Polish expression on colds 'if you treat a cold, you will be better in 7 days, if you do not treat it,
it will take a week'

Prostasan Fix from Herbapol (Herbapol Lublin I presume) is not the same thing as a saw palmetto Prostasan marketed in the English speaking world - that maybe the reason why you have seen so divergent prices (but maybe the importers into Britain charge that much I don't know)

Has anyone any information about the use of 'bańki' as treatment for colds or pneumonia?

ancient practice, but it's effectiveness has not been verified by modern medicine. I'm skeptical myself.

raw garlic works wonders for bacterial infections such as tonsillitis. You can even use it for Otitis media.

If you're not a fan of the garlic taste, I remember reading that it you put cloves of garlic in your socks before you go to bed, your feet will absorb the garlic goodness.

I'm not brave enough to put garlic in my socks. Vaseline on my feet, covered with socks at bedtime, is about as daring as I get.

Maybe you mean this (Polish name Skorzonera - Wężymord czarny korzeń)

To get only on some ECO shops or online.

Check the photo - it has purple flowers and attracts bees.

A quick google search reveals there are some products with comfrey for muscle pain.

Anyone have Polish home remedies for things like a cold, stomach ache, etc?

I strongly recommend amber spirit. It is good for everything, but especially joint pain or backache.

I use it regularly. Last Saturday I worked hard in the field and orchard. First I planted a bag of potatoes. Next, I moved two young fruit trees to another part of the orchard. When I woke up of Sundayl, I realised I couldn`t walk properly due to acute backache. I immediately applied amber spirit and have done so till now., The pain is almost gone now.

This stuff really works wonders.

This stuff really works wonders.

Today I worked in the field again. The first 15 minutes were a bit painful, I admit. But then the backache disappeared completely. Amazing - I truly recommend it to you - if you don`t believe, read about anti-inflammatory properties of amber.
