What home remedies, treatments, etc.. do you have for illnesses?

I just read about a family that believes in the "onion method" for the flu. You chop an onion in half and place it beside your head at night. It's supposed to take the flu from you. LOL... Ya never know, I guess.

What do you believe in?
