Old-Fashioned Bladder Treatment

Another unique and unusual treatment for bladder infections is to take a teaspoon of pure garlic juice. This is said to be effective in killing off the bacteria responsible for many bladder infections. This simple treatment can be repeated as often as needed.

Poison Ivy Treatment

Use equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water. Dab on the affected skin areas allowing to dry. Apply as often as needed for relief.


Apply apple cider vinegar, just as it comes from the bottle, to the skin area where the shingles are located, four times during the day and three times during the night if you are awake. The itching and burning sensation in the skin will leave usually within a few minutes after the vinegar is applied. Many old-timers swear by this treatment declaring that the shingles heal much more readily from the regular use of apple cider vinegar.

Muscle Cramps

An old time remedy for muscle cramps is two teaspoons of honey with meals. If this is done on a regular basis, the cramping will usually diminish within one to two weeks. It is recommended that the honey be taken on a regular basis to prevent the muscle cramps returning once you get them to stop. This has proven to be effective in cases of cramps in the feet and legs during the night.

Canker Sores

Make your own canker sore treatment by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda in a half cup of warm water. Use this mixture as a mouth rinse several times a day, especially after meals and before bedtime. This should give you some relief within 24 hours and they will usually clear up totally in about 3 days.

Headache Treatment

A unique suggestions for a headache is using an ice-cold piece of cooking foil on your forehead. This is said to be perfect for curing a headache. One doctor who has been studying headaches for years says the foil cools the blood and the headache disappears in about two minutes.

Indigestion Reliever

In case of indigestion, prepare a mixture of one teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drink for immediate relief. It is normal for this to cause a burping or a belching reaction as the relief takes place. This is also recommended for heartburn. You can use this remedy a couple of times a day if necessary for temporary relief. If the problem persists, of if there are any other symptoms, be sure to consult your doctor.

Old-Fashioned Cough Remedy

You can make a simple cough remedy by boiling one lemon slowly for approximately 10 minutes. This will soften the lemon so that it will be juicier, and it will also soften the rind. Cut the lemon in two parts and extract the juice with a lemon squeezer. Put the juice into an ordinary drinking glass. Add two tablespoonfuls of glycerine. Stir the glycerine and lemon juice mixture well, then fill the drinking glass with honey. (Glycerine can be purchased from your local druggist or pharmacy.)
