1. Spiders!!

Arachnophobic , you’ll not even need to read about this cause it’ll give you chills!

in the dark ages of the United Kingdom,

the so called doctors back then were not of that much of scientific knowledge,

If any patient wanted to know a way of how to cure common cold ,

they would simply ask them to collect as many spider webs as they could,

and then squeeze them in a tablet form and just make them swallow it.


Just be Careful, if you tried to use this way that the web doesn’t have anymore insects clinched to it!

They even sometimes asked Malaria’s patients to eat the alive spider itself to cure them from such a deadly disease.
