“When I was just two days old, I came down with a fever. My parents took me to the physician, and he gave me two spoonfuls of brandy. I’m told it knocked me right out and voila: I was all better!!”

 

That’s a true story told my a grandmother near and dear to our hearts!

 

You’ve probably heard similar stories from your grandparents or great-grandparents, but do those old remedies (usually involving alcohol) really work when you’re coming down with something?

 

GreatistĀ breaks down some classic homemade health remedies and gets into some of the science behind why they were so tried and true for so long.

 

Enjoy and stay positive and well!
