Mom's Home Remedies

A plastic surgeon is not immune to a Mother's wisdom. I remember my Mom was always looking for ways to heal naturally.  

One book she read, as did I, was entitled “See Without Glasses”.  I wore glasses as a young kid and sure didn’t like being called “4-eyes”, but I got over it. 

She also read about the healing wonders of good old apple cider vinegar.  They say soaking a bruise with a cotton ball dipped in vinegar will decrease the bruising and speed up healing.  

Another "miracle cure" is good old Listerine.  If you have toe nail fungus, soaking your feel in Listerine can overcome this.  

They say at the first sign of a urinary tract infection ie: pain and burning upon urinating, take a couple of Alka Seltzer to nip it in the bud.  

Sore hands?  Take some oatmeal (2 cups) with one cup of water – microwave it and put it on your hands to sooth the pain.

As fascinating as these ideas may be, they do not represent medical advice. As with anything, it is always wise to check with your doctor when any health issue arises.
