Best Natural Old Home Remedies

Every culture has its old home remedies. The remedies came from a time when people were much closer to nature, and had a need to heal using things other than the powerful medicines of today. Part folk wisdom, part common sense, many of them worked because of the physical reactions, and some worked because people believed that they worked.

I was having dinner with a friend not long ago, when she told me about her grandfather's medicine cabinet, and his blackberry brandy remedy for an upset stomach.

It took me back to when I was a child and my mother would rub Vick's Vaporub on my chest when I got a chest cold, wrap me in towels and put me to bed.

Before we lose most of this wisdom, it would be a good idea for us to record as many of these ideas as possible. Some of them may actually work!

So this part of our project is a fun part where people get to share their old home remedies for the good of the natural health community.
