In this article, Debra of DIY Natural shares 17 old time “Granny cures” that have been used in the southern Appalachians and Ozarks for ages. Debra explains the properties and purpose of each herbal remedy. One thing I like is that she also includes health precautions where appropriate.
For example: White Willow Bark was used by Native Americans to relieve pain and reduce fevers. “Granny healers” found it to also be an antispasmodic. Eventually science synthetically made aspirin with similar ingredients. There is a caution to not give it to anyone younger than 19.
None of the “Granny cures” in this article includes a recipe. However, Debra does share her recipe for Elderberry Glycerite which supports healthy immune function. To read the entire article, click on the 17 Old Time Granny Cures That Still Work link below.
