Extreme Fat

Use a total Vegetable Diet. I know one who was entirely cured of this, by living a year thus:- she breakfasted and supped on milk and water (with bread,) and dined on turnips, carrots or other roots, drinking water.

Ulcers and Sores, Carrots will heal

May 12th, 2008

“Boil carrots until soft and mash them to a pulp, add lard or sweet oil sufficient to keep it from getting hard. Spread and apply; excellent for offensive sores. Onion poultice made the same way is good for slow boils and indolent sores.” This makes a very soothing poultice and has great healing properties.
