Does that make me weird?
Actually it's a piece of banana skin as I have a verruca, I cannot use a normal verruca treatment because of the position of the verruca, I'll try this for a few weeks & let you know how I get on.
Many years ago a friend of mine's 5 year old son had problems with warts, his hands were covered in them & the other children in his class were teasing him & refusing to sit near him. My friend is a charismatic evangelist & so was not keen when I suggested buying the warts from her son, eventually after trying many other treatments & many visits to the Dr's she agreed. I gave her son 50p & explained that I was buying his warts, he was worried to start with as he thought I was going to start cutting them off but I reassured him. By the end of the following week all the warts had disappeared.
DD phoned a couple of days ago, she has mastitis, I suggested a cabbage leaf in her bra, it is quite a well know remedy.
I always prefer to use a natural remedy whenever possible, honey to help heal wounds, clove oil for toothache etc.
The reaction of one of my colleagues shows why, many years ago, old ladies who had a lifes worth of country knowledge were burnt at the stake!
