Mom Was Ready With Tried and True Treatments
It was many years ago when Mom used
her homemade remedies for my childhood ailments. Mom’s tried-and-true treatments
consisted of a mustard plaster and a milk poultice, which were used frequently
since we very rarely visited a doctor.

treat a chest cold or any unknown reason for a deep or painful cough. The milk
poultice was placed on and pressed against the source of an infection.

with her healing treatments. Each time they were applied, we got positive
I don’t have the formulas for Mom’s
successful cures, and I wish I had asked for them so I could have secured this

in raising five children, and even now in my older years.
