Inflammation of the Bowels, Excellent Remedy for

March 25th, 2008

“First bathe the abdomen with warm salt water, then lay over the navel a piece of lard the size of black walnut. Hold the hand over this until it softens; then rub well into the bowels. This often relieves when pills and powders fail.” The massaging brings about action of the bowels without a cathartic usually. Sweet oil or olive oil, instead of lard, will do as well.
