What kind of Puerto Rican traditonal home remedies their for being sick?

Doctors always recommends plenty of liquids when kicking a cold. They probably didn’t mean tequila shots, but surprisingly, many Mexican doctors in the 1900s recommend the fix to sick patients. Apparently, a combination of tequila, agave, and fresh lime juice can do wonders in fighting off colds and sore throats.

Nothing cures evil eye better than uncooked eggs. Many Latinos believe that people can give their children evil eye or an eye full of joy. Different cultures have different cures for the evil eye, but almost every cure involves uncooked eggs. One version involves rubbing the uncooked egg all over the body of the inflicted child for three straight days. After each day, crack the egg into a glass of water to see determine much evil still remains.
