Country People Medicine Cabinet and Home Remedies

Country at HeartI think I've just about thought about every kind of medicine we used for sickness and illnesses. Obviously, all of the medicines in each category weren't used at the same time, but at some point, any or all of them came in handy for whatever ailed us.

I don’t remember that we had chicken pox … we may have, but I’m unaware of that disease coming to visit us.

AG, sure glad I didn't grow up in your house. My mom had some remedies but they most consisted of Vicks Vapor Rub and some concoction of onions and garlic that was either eaten or rubbed on our chest or both. The other thing that I hated most was to go to the old country doctor and get a shot of penicillin. It seemed like that was the cure all back then. No pills in the medical practice but always a shot in the bum. Just the thought of having to go see the doctor and get a shot was a cure for sure. ***** Have a great natural remedy day.
