Fight a fever with onions. Origin: Unknown - possibly North America. When a child has a high fever, some parents reach immediately for the medicine cabinet. Others simply rely on cool baths and forehead compresses. But a small portion of parents will reach for an onion and and old pair of socks. This remedy promises to lower a childÂ’s fever within hours if you put slices of an onion on the bottom of his feet and hold them there with socks. The onion is said to draw the fever out of the body. And you thought your kids had smelly feet before.
Use meat to rid yourself of warts. Origin: Europe/United Kingdom. This treatment is ancient, but still in use in many parts of the world today. When ugly warts appear on your skin, simply take a piece of red meat, rub it on the wart, and then bury it in the ground. The wart slowly disappears as the meat rots away in the groundÂ…or so weÂ’re told.
