Carrot

Carrots are strongly antiseptic. They are said to be mentally invigorating and
nerve restoring.

 They have the reputation of being very indigestible on account
of the fact that they are generally boiled, not steamed. When used medicinally it
is best to take the fresh, raw juice. This is easily obtained by grating the carrot
finely on a common penny bread grater, and straining and pressing the pulp thus
obtained.
Raw carrot juice, or a raw carrot eaten fasting, will expel worms. The cooked
carrot is useless for this purpose.
A poultice of fresh carrot pulp will heal ulcers.
Fresh carrot juice is also good for consumptives on account of the large amount
of sugar it contains.
Carrots are very good for gouty subjects and for derangements of the liver.
