“Why you should put garlic in your ear before going to sleep” is a ridiculous headline heralding a ridiculous email message about lost health remedies.
There are probably thousands of books proclaiming long lost remedies and books of kitchen medicines, home-made potions to cure all ills, grand-mothers methods, ancient healing potions etc. and many will contain ideas that could work e.g. the age old remedy for indigestion is peppermint tea.
But, equally many of the old remedies are dangerous or just plain wrong. People have believed in the most ludicrous things in the past (and some still do).
This message claims:-
”the most powerful natural painkiller”
“the most powerful natural cures lost to mankind”
“when medicines vanish you’ll need this on your bookshelf”
“turn your backyard weeds into antibiotics”.
No. Better to stick with modern medicine for anything serious and be careful over which kitchen remedies you try.
The line about garlic in your ears isn’t explained in the message and I wont be buying any book just to find the no doubt strange reason behind such a practice.

Ok, so there seems to be an endless supply of scam messages based on magic cures for any ailment you can imagine and many claim to cure everything.
This latest scam message contains the usual scammer language of ‘a weird trick’, ‘scientists are baffled’, ‘no side effects’, ‘incredibly simple to use’, ‘used thousands of years ago’ etc. and it’s from an xyz Internet domain name i.e. miscellaneous.
So, what does it say?
“Once in a while a miracle happens and a little girl who was condemned to death by traditional medicine …”.
“her uncle, out of desperation, found this long lost remedy used by Kings of 2000 years ago”
Rather than specialising in magic cured for one or two diseases, this one invents a magic remedy that can cure everything, including asthma, allergies, the common cold, cystic fibrosis, ear infection etc.
It even cures smokers cough. But that is caused by smoke damage to the lungs over years of smoking and the only remedy is to stop smoking and in enough years your body will very slowly repair the lung tissue.
The magic remedy is claimed to be 3 times more powerful than penicillin but most of the ailments are viruses and hence penicillin has no effect on them e.g. the common cold.
Maybe the scammer has some useless remedy to ship out to gullible people but more likely there is nothing and the scammer just takes any money gullible people send in.
