Thought this might be an interesting subject.
What home or Old remedies do you use for our ailments?
I got a great one.
Restless Leg syndrome and Leg Cramps.
The ones with Quinine in them like they give for Malaria.
I suffered from sudden leg and toe cramping due to other meds I take for my COPD.
I was told about Tonic Water and gave it a try.
Damn if it didn’t work.
My Daughter has always suffered from Restless Leg Syndrome until she tried it.
Little story goes with this too.
Quinine is made from a bark from a tree.
It works against Malaria and was given soldiers when they came down with it.
The Quinine is rather bitter and hard to drink down.
So the Docs mixed it with Soda Water and a citrus juice to thin it down and make it more palatable.
The Soldiers still didn’t like to drink it so the Docs mixed it with Gin.
Gin and Tonic was born!!
Soldiers had no problem swigging it down after that.
