Nikolai Ubushaev, About Dairy Products and Healing Methods

Change log


Terbish, Baasanjav 


Nikolai says that in his childhood Kalmyks ate a lot of dairy products including cheese, butter, milk and so on. Thanks to this healthy diet many old people of his generation still have good teeth. Accoring to Nikolai, toothache can be treated by chewing something that is tough such as dried bread crust or wood. A person who has appendicitis should lay down and lift his/her legs; in this position the pain will diminish and the condition heal by itself.
