Nicaraguan "Folk Remidies"
As part of a discussion in http://www.nicaliving.com/node/19832, I mentioned how two doctors treated an ear infection. Two people have since suggested folk remedies for it. I think these remedies deserve their own forum topic.
There are still people in Nicaragua who are a four hour walk from any sort of health care yet many of these people live a long life and are generally healthy. While not eating processed food and getting exercise are probably a big contributors, there are sometimes needs for a remedy.
Let's see what sorts of cures we can collect here.
