ONE OF THE WOMEN I KNEW HAD A CURE FOR CRAMPS.
SHE USED TO GO ON THE STREET, WHERE THE HORSES
JUST WENT BY PULLING CARTS.
SHE WOULD TAKE THE HORSE'S MANURE AND SQUEEZE IT OUT.
SHE THEN MIXED THE DRIPPINGS WITH HOT WATER AND DRANK IT.
SHE CLAIMED IT ACTUALLY WORKED.

Submitter comment: INFORMANT (I.E. COLLECTOR) DOES NOT BELIEVE THIS CURE.
