I am not at all advocating not taking medication. I am a proponent of modern medicine. In fact, it was modern medicine that allowed my father to see his four grandsons. It was modern medicine that saved my mother's life last year during Christmas, so please don't think I'm advising anyone to NOT taking prescribed medications. This was simply my attempt at a "home" remedy. In a way it reminds me of some of the things my grandmother would do or suggest for different ailments. I specifically remember her telling me to rub some bourbon on my babies gums when they were teething. I don't think I ever did this, but I'll bet my parents did when they were babysitting. She also had a penchant for castor oil which I never understood. Nasty stuff. I also have a vivid memory of being dunked in an ice bath when I was about four years old. I can't imagine that would be a prescribed method of reducing fevers. Home remedies can go both ways. Some are simple and good and some are just crazy.
If you happen to have this annoying thing called Meniere's a lot of fluids could be really helpful. If you don't, but are feeling really bloated one day, here's an option. If you can stomach the Master Cleanse you are a super star and I want to shake your hand!

Any home remedies to share? Have you ever had a spoonful of castor oil and lived to tell about it?
