Sick kids sometimes call for desperate measures. We'll try anything to give our adorable, miserable little snot-factories some relief from cold viruses that always seem to strike exactly 2.3 weeks after the first day of school. You'd be stunned at some of the wacky, alternative things parents have tried feeding their kids to terminate germs, like, er, um, animal blood. Yes, real uncooked plasma from the veins of creatures from the butcher. 

It was this mom's comment about the animal blood that got us wondering about some of the other strange things moms have given kids when they were sick

Important note here: This post is NOT meant as medical advice. While some may be valid alternative remedies, please for goodness sakes use your sense and don't force any of these on your kid without checking with their doctor first. (Except 1, 6 and 7. And you probably should take a dose of #3 yourself.)
