I've heard of two ailments that dill pickle juice can possibly remedy.
1) a mild tummy ache
2) muscle cramps
With a mild tummy ache this morning I took a small shot of dill pickle juice. While the tummy ache eventually went away, I think this helped with causing me to burp so may aid in heartburn relief. One try is not enough to make any conclusions.
Taking a small amount (2.5 oz) of dill pickle juice is reported to speed up relief from muscle cramps. If you have a medical condition that limits salt, check with your doctor first. Be sure to check out the links for more details.
From the Original White House Cookbook, 1887 edition ... under 'Health Suggestions' ... it mentions on page 495: "Nervous spasms are usually relieved by a little salt taken into the mouth and allowed to dissolve."
Yea or Nay? What do you say? Do you have an old time remedy for a tummy ache and/or muscle cramps/spasms?
