Cure Food Quotes

“Pistachio nuts, the red ones, cure any problem.”
Paula Danziger, American author


“And Tom brought him chicken soup until he wanted to kill him. The lore has not died out of the world, and you will still find people who believe that soup will cure any hurt or illness and is no bad thing to have for the funeral either.”
John Steinbeck, ‘East of Eden’


“Sage helps the nerves and by its powerful might   Palsy is cured and fever put to flight.”
French saying


“If one consults enough herbals...every sickness known to humanity will be listed as being cured by sage.”
Varro Taylor, Ph.D. (herb expert)


“There are two reasons for drinking: one is, when you are thirsty, to cure it; the other when you are thirsty, to prevent it....Prevention is better than cure.”
Thomas Love Peacock (English author)


“Oh, that miracle clove!  Not only does garlic taste good, it cures baldness and tennis elbow, too."
Laurie Burrows Grad


“Sage cures Everything!!!     "Good for diseases of the liver and to make blood. A decoction of the leaves and branches of Sage made and drunk, saith Dioscorides, provokes urine and causeth the hair to become black. It stayeth the bleeding of wounds and cleaneth ulcers and sores. Three spoonsful of the juice of Sage taken fasting with a little honey arrests spitting or vomiting of blood in consumption. It is profitable for all pains in the head coming of cold rheumatic humours, as also for all pains in the joints, whether inwardly or outwardly. The juice of Sage in warm water cureth hoarseness and cough. Pliny saith it cureth stinging and biting serpents. Sage is of excellent use to help the memory, warming and quickening the senses. The juice of Sage drunk with vinegar hath been of use in the time of the plague at all times. Gargles are made with Sage, Rosemary, Honeysuckles and Plantains, boiled in wine or water with some honey or alum put thereto, to wash sore mouths and throats, as need requireth. It is very good for stitch or pains in the sides coming of wind, if the place be fomented warm with the decoction in wine and the herb also, after boiling, be laid warm thereto."
‘A Physicall Directory' by Nicholas Culpepper (1649)
