Amazing New Uses for Old-Fashioned Remedies - Vicks VapoRub

November 8th, 2007

Suffering is the mother of creativity. People will do almost anything to relieve their discomfort. Perhaps that is why some folks have tried rinsing their scalps with Listerine for flaky Dandruff. Others have dabbed vodka on their itchy poison ivy.

People reach for what they have on hand, which might account for why common household products show up so frequently in strange home remedies. Who knew you could use Phillip’s Milk of Magnesia as an underarm deodorant instead of a Laxative?

Perhaps the most versatile of all is Vicks VapoRub. This old-fashioned salve has been used for more than a century to ease chest congestion. But there is an astonishing assortment of other uses that people have invented.

Seven years ago we heard from Jane Kelley, RN, a foot care nurse in Massachusetts. She told us that some of her colleagues were using Vicks VapoRub on patients’ fungus-infected toenails.

This was the conclusion according to a study published in ‘Nutrition Journal Oct 2007’.

Basically the study looked at long term users (20 years plus) of multiple dietary supplement users and compared them with those long term users who just took a standard Multi-Vitamin/mineral supplement, or, nothing at all.

‘Multiple dietary Supplements’ mean a combination of a broad spectrum of Supplements, including Amino Acids, herbal extracts, phytonutrients, and other specialty nutrients.

The researchers found that those who took multiple dietary Supplements were in significantly better overall health than their counterparts whom just relied on the standard ‘multi vitamin/mineral’ supplement. This was measured by higher blood levels of key nutrients, more optimal levels of key health biomarkers, lower levels of Diabetes and elevated blood pressure.

In fact, they determined that as a group they were 73% less likely to have Diabetes and 39% less likely to have High Blood Pressure.

No surprises here really!

A simple multi vitamin/mineral supplement just doesn’t ‘cut it’ if you want optimal health!

To make corn silk tea — put a handful of corn silk into tea pot and cover with 2 cups of boiling water. Let steep for 10 minutes. Strain before serving.

In the autumn when granny husked her corn for putting up for the winter, she’d take the time to save the corn silk before drying the husks for making corn dollys or use in other craft projects. She would spread the silk out on clean dish toweling to dry. Once the moisture was gone, the silk was stored in a brown paper bag for safekeeping to make some of her winter tonics.
