Whooping Cough. Get a donkey and let two men hold you under the donkey's belly three times. Then get a bit of bread and give it to the donkey and eat what bread the donkey lets fall.

Pain in a cow's stomach. Get a lot of roots and stems of dandelions and put them into the cows feeding and it will cure it.
Toothache. Wet a piece of soda and put it into the tooth.
