Grandparents' Health Advice Highlights Folk Medicine And Common Sense

While most of us have medical doctors from the time we're born, grandma and grandpa often play an important role as "health consultants" -- passing down folk wisdom, common sense and advice.

And while the suggestions range from research-based (aloe gel for burns; ginger ale for an upset stomach) to pretty out there (we're not naming names), they are all said with the astounding, over-the-top love that only a grandparent can give. Read on for the greatest hits from the progenitors of HuffPost staffers and then add your own!

Nota bene: The following suggestions are not doctor approved -- just bubby approved. Healthy Living doesn't endorse them as medical remedies.
