16 Hilarious Home Remedies

16 Hilarious Home Remedies

Joint/Knee Pain

We have all heard of magnet therapy for joint pain which has some physiologic truth behind it because the magnets supposedly attract the iron-ridden red blood cells to the area for increased healing. However, people have gone to the extreme of drinking metal compounds (silver) for severe pain. NOT RECOMMENDED. This can lead to seizures, kidney damage and many other ailments worse than the original. Another suggestion to treat knee pain? Sleep with a bar of soap under your knee- one guy even said it had to be a specific brand or he wouldn’t bother.

Toenail Fungus

Soak your toes in Listerine. The next time you go to swish your mouth with Listerine, I know you’ll be encouraged…

Too Much Ear Wax

The latest trend to extract ear wax has been those ear candles where you light one end of a hollow stick and seal the unlit end to your ear, in hopes of sucking out the ear wax. This is actually dangerous to your ear because the creation of the vacuum in the tube can rupture your eardrum. Alternative? Put olive oil in your ear instead. It breaks up the wax and allows it to run out. Yum.

Bad Case of the Runs

Drink a packet of powder jello and chase it down with a cup of hot water. This concoction will “stick” to your intestines and slow the process down.

Bug Bites

Sit in a tub full of vinegar. You will probably ward off bugs and people for a while after that endeavor.

Jellyfish Sting

I have heard many reports claiming that if you get stung, get out of the water immediately, track down a person (preferably somebody that you know, so it doesn’t get awkward) and have them pee on you where the sting was. Have yet to try this one out, hope to never have to.

Halitosis

Case of the bad breath? Try chewing up coffee beans. I’m guessing this only works if the people who are smelling your breath enjoy the smell of coffee.

    I don't know about all the rest, but the ear candle and olive oil worked wonders for me as a child who was always having earaches. My immigrant Italian grandmother would make the ear candle, administer it to me and immediately, I felt better. Then she'd put a drop of olive oil in the canal followed by a cotton ball plug. Worked every time. I've been a nurse for 41 years and I still see it as a wonder, as long as the admistrator is careful. Yes...I am a BSN...but I know what I know...

    MY grandmother used the candle in the ear trip on me when I was a child. I was prone to ear infections so I got many a candle therapy...and it was the only thing that took away the pain. Then she'd put a drop or two of warm olive oil in my ear and capped it with a cotton ball. I thought my grandmother was a natural born healer. When I would sprain one of my limbs, she'd rub salt and olive oil over the area then wrap it with a clean white rag. This worked, too. There is something to be said for some of the old ways.
