treatments in the old days
GABRIEL BLAIS TOPIC #1
Here were the treatments 80 years ago.
Rhewnatic fever cause by sore throat, it would effect the valves of the heart. No treatments . Biggest problem with children and there were no treatments. Most children would die! Today there is penicillin to treat it.
No common ingectionwere available like they get taday . If you would step on a rusty nail you would take a horse syrum to treat it but children would get sick from the syrum. So it wouldn°«t do any good .
For a common cold – flackseed tea to drink. Today we have vick vapor rub.
Mustard plasters for chest.
Goose grease rub for the chest. Onion syrup to sooth throat.You would put onions and sugar on a plate and eat They would have asperin to bring down your tempeture. Rosin bag for cough. There was no penicillin. No antibiotic. Docters would bleed people to find out what was wrong with them.
Aspirin was good but had side effects.
People would bleed easly
Ulcers in stomach.
There was no hygene in those days, no sanitary things. There were no vitamins, no preventive medecine. They had cod liver oil as a vitamine [ATD]. That would privide the vitamine they needed. There was a lot of pyphteria and children would die from it all the time.
