Encyclopedia of Folk Medicine: Old World and New World Traditions (Google eBook)
"For the first time, Encyclopedia of Folk Medicine compiles in a single source the ailments, remedies, and sometimes outlandish prescriptions that have characterized folk medicine in Britain and North America from the sixteenth century to the present. Within the 220+ A-Z entries, readers will discover such fascinating facts as: mice, burned to a cinder, powdered, and mixed with jam, were given to children in Sussex to cure them of bed-wetting; to avoid "catching" epilepsy, an amulet made from the backbone of a rattlesnake was worn as a precaution in California; in Roman times, the ashes from the burned genitals of an ass were mixed with urine and rubbed on the scalp to prevent baldness; and potatoes were carried in the pocket to ward off rheumatism in twentieth-century Norfolk.".
