Now, cure your earache royal-style with loaf of bread
London: A newly unearthed 17th century book, which was written by King Charles II's personal physician, Dr. William Sermon, has revealed that ancient royals used to put a loaf of bread in their ear hole to cure an earache.
The book, titled 'A Friend To The Sick, or The Honest Englishman's Preservation', explained that taking a loaf made with one part of caraway seeds, cutting it through the middle and applying it to the ears was an easy cure for earaches.
The book, which sheds light on some old home remedies, also claimed that rubbing watercress into the gums was an excellent cure for toothache, the Daily Express reported.
Sermon also advised in the book, which is expected to fetch around 500 pounds when it goes under the hammer, that tobacco ash is of excellent use to cleanse the teeth and to make them white.
The book was found during a house clearance in Derbyshire.
