Grandma’s Home Remedies
My grandmother had all sorts of home remedies. When she had a sore throat she gargled with warm salt water. If it got worse she added a little bleach to the warm salt water. I told her I didn’t think that was wise, but she was my grandmother and she didn’t have to listen to me and she didn’t!
Grandma Knows Best
There were other things she recommended, like catnip tea for my son’s colic and rubbing meat tenderizer on a bee sting. Grandma gave my mother and her brothers a spoon full of castor oil every night before they went to bed to keep them regular and she used turpentine on their chests to help them breathe if they had a cold. I don’t know about apple cider vinegar but I know that when she was young she and her sisters were given vinegar to keep them healthy.
I had never considered taking vinegar (in any form) until my friend Annette gave me a bottle for Christmas. If that sounds like a strange gift let me explain why she gave it to me. She loves me and knows I had one problem after another with my digestive system last year and she’d read about the benefits of taking a small amount every day.
So Far…So Good
I’ve been taking it every day since Christmas and so far so good. I mix mine (about a tablespoon) with apple juice. It’s not that bad and if it helps my digestive health, then pass the apple cider vinegar please!
Did your grandmother have any home remedies? If so, what were they and did you try them?
