Grandmother's day remedies for known ailments

  1. An onion next to your bed if you have a cold, a cotton ball in your ear for motion sickness or put toothpaste on burns; tips for ailments from grandmother's days can be very helpful. In this article you will find 'old-fashioned' remedies for fever, burns, colds and diarrhea.

General information

  1. This article contains a number of tips and remedies from grandmother's time. For example with a fever or a cold. The remedies are suitable when the health problems are not serious. For example, a runny nose can be very harmless but very annoying, or a small burn after a few drops of hot water have been spilled. The tips and remedies are not intended for people with serious health problems; these are advised to contact a doctor or general practitioner as soon as possible. Even when in doubt, a phone call to the doctor can provide certainty.

Burns

  1. You can make a paste from flour with a little cold milk. Gently spread the paste on the burn and remove it after a while; the pain will diminish. You can also put a (fresh) potato peel on the burn; this prevents blistering.

Heartburn

  1. There are many things you could eat to relieve heartburn, including: a pickle, a bowl of vanilla custard, a raw potato, raw oatmeal, or a basil leaf. Incidentally, there are also a number of 'drinks' that could stop heartburn: vinegar, chamomile tea or warm milk.

Diarrhea

  1. With diarrhea you could eat a spoonful of cinnamon with a little sugar to stop it. Or drink a few glasses of coca cola. Bananas also seem to help with diarrhea (these can sometimes be clogging), as do rice or oatmeal flakes. A remedy from Turkey is to eat a spoonful of yogurt mixed with half a bag of tea (loose tea).

Cough

  1. A wet (wrung out) cloth can help against coughing. Tie the wet cloth around your neck; this helps against a sore throat and coughing. For tickling cough, syrup (the syrup for the pancake) can be mixed with half a tablespoon of black pepper; take a generous spoonful of the mixture every so often. A good tablespoon of salad oil also seems to help with coughing; like a sugar cube or a cut onion.

Headache

  1. Put your feet in a tub of warm water; this can relieve the headache. Or drip some peppermint oil on the temples. Parsley can also help; boil a bunch of parsley in water and drink the liquid. Simply eating sugar can also be good for headaches; headaches can be caused by low blood sugar.

Fever

  1. For children with a fever, it can help to mix lemon with a little water and dip the socks in it. Put on the socks on the child and the fever will leave his head. Socks can also be dipped in vinegar and put on in children to help lower the fever. Taking a warm shower or bath can instantly lower the fever by 1 or 2 degrees.

Colds

  1. A well-known remedy for a cold is the use of an onion. For example, it can be cut open next to the bed at night. What also seems to help is to drink the juice from the onion; you get the juice out by sprinkling brown sugar on it and letting it sit for a while. Rinsing your nose daily can ensure that your nose becomes blocked less quickly; do this for example with a cup of warm water. In America they even sell special nose rinsing instruments.

Car sickness

  1. Put a cotton ball in your ear (if you are on your left in your right ear and if you are on your right in your left ear) to reduce or prevent motion sickness. It can also help to stick a plaster on the rock bone (part behind the ears). Wearing dark sunglasses during the ride can also help, or swallowing a tablespoon of thyme syrup.
