Grandparents' Health Advice Highlights Folk Medicine And Common Sense

Posted: Updated:

While most of us have medical doctors from the time we're born, grandma and grandpa often play an important role as "health consultants" -- passing down folk wisdom, common sense and advice.

And while the suggestions range from research-based (aloe gel for burns; ginger ale for an upset stomach) to pretty out there (we're not naming names), they are all said with the astounding, over-the-top love that only a grandparent can give. Read on for the greatest hits from the progenitors of HuffPost staffers and then add your own!

Nota bene: The following suggestions are not doctor approved -- just bubby approved. Healthy Living doesn't endorse them as medical remedies.
