I was comparing notes awhile back with a friend, about some weird home remedies we were raised with and how often they do work. What I was wondering, did you have any of these in your family and if so, what were they. I will give you a couple of examples of my own.
For a cold, my mom would mix lemon juice, whisky and honey and warm them up and we would drink this as a home made cough syrup.
For headaches, I was always taught to place on palm of my hand on my forehead and another on my back lower neck.
For hang-overs, tomato juice, a raw egg, and some tobasco. Taste terrible when your hung-over, if you get it down though, within a few minutes you feel fine.
Waiting to hear others.
