In any case of pus-related diseases, said Dr. Edward Shook, such as ulcerations, acne, boils, abscesses, carbuncles, tumors, eczema, psoriasis, lupus, athlete's foot, mastoiditis, necrosis of the bone, syphilitic sores, swollen glands, cancers, sore throat, infected wounds, and various ulcers, as well as any other disease that supports that creation of pus, you should use what he called a "magic remedy," consisting of: 2 quarts apple cider, 8 ounces fresh garlic juice, 1 ounce freshly grated horseradish. Put together and let stand in warm place for 12 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove to cool place and let stand for 12 more hours, stirring occasionally. Strain and press through sterile cloth. Saturated a piece of gauze and place on affected area. It is used in sciatic and rheumatism as well. Mix with glycerine in equal parts to apply on edema.
