Burning feet and pain in the legs...

Crumble four blocks of camphor into 500ml methylated spirits. Camphor is available from pharmacies. Shake the mixture well and apply with cotton wool to feet or legs.

Feet must be rubbed DOWN from above the ankle and never up, the old people believed you rubbed the disease into confusion! The same applies for the legs, start above the knee and rub down.

Raw Honey

Having been consumed for centuries, honey is probably the oldest and most natural sweetener of all. In it’s raw form, honey is packed full of nutrients including amino acids, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes.

The medicinal properties in honey can prevent and treat allergies. Honey is also one of the best topical treatments for burns.

Honey in its raw form is best because heat can destroy the nutrients. I do caution the overuse of honey though, as it can raise your blood sugar. A couple teaspoons of honey a day is adequate.

“Feed a cold and starve a fever.”

Or…is it, “Starve a cold and feed a fever?”

I’m sure you’ve heard both versions of this old saying. However, which one is true? Does either one even have an ounce of validity?

what are the best things to put in your body to help fight off a cold? I believe that staying hydrated is of the most importance — even more important than eating food.

Bed sores and wounds that don't heal
Gifbol plants look like the leaves of an onion. The bulb itself is poisonous and should never be used. Tear the leaves from around the bulb and place on bed sores - it keeps the wound dry and drains excess fluid around it. The wounds should preferably be treated three times a day. Place a blob of petroleum jelly (Vaseline) inside the wound if it has formed a hole because it is the body's attempt to 'fill' the hole that causes the fluid to build up, which in turn slows down healing.

Hair loss
Take four branches of rosemary, length from the elbow to the wrist. Pour the oil of a middle size bottle coconut oil in a small pan. Strip the leaves from the stem, add it to the oil and fry on medium heat until the leaves brown slightly. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool down. Don't let the leaves become too dark since it will affect the fragrance. Pour the oil through a sieve so that the leaves stay behind. Massage the oil into the scalp for five minutes. Bind a plastic bag around the head for 30 minutes to generate some heat. Wash the hair and rinse with rosemary infusion - take five branches of rosemary, boil in two litres water and cool down. Use this combination of oil and infusion every week for four weeks and once a month thereafter. Coconut oil is available from pharmacies and certain chain stores.

Gout and arthritis
Pour a litre water in a pot, cut (don't use a garlic press) one kilogram garlic into it. Boil on medium heat for 30 minutes and remove from stove. Add 250 grams of honey and one litre cane spirit to the warm water. It is important that the cane spirit is poured into warm water so that the alcohol can evaporate. Let the mixture cool down and pour through a sieve into a glass bottle and keep in the fridge. Drink a tot three times a day. Use the bottle until it is finished, wait seven days and then make another bottle. Although you may start feeling better after about three bottles, really good results are experienced after about eight bottles.

People often think keeping all windows and doors closed help keep the warmth in... It does when needed, but please people ventilate your homes and cars...

Germs breed...
