Natural Victorian Cures for Rheumatism

FROM 1890

Rheumatism describes any of a number of painful conditions of muscles, tendons, joints, and bones. Conditions include bursitis, tendinitis and fibromyalgia.

1) Use a flat iron and vinegar. The iron is heated until sufficiently hot to vaporize the vinegar, and is then covered with some woolen fabric, which is moistened with vinegar and applied at once to the painful spot. The application may be repeated two or three times a day. As a rule, the pain disappears in twenty-four hours, and recovery ensues at once.

2) Take cucumbers, when full grown, and put them into a pot with a little salt. Then put the pot over a slow fire, where it should remain for about an hour; then take the cucumbers and press them. The juice from the cucumbers must be put into bottles, corked up tight, and placed in the cellar, where they should remain for about a week. Then wet a flannel rag with the liquid, and apply it to the parts affected.
