I've been interested in these kind of little herbal and such remedies for a while, but I don't know nearly as many as I would like. So, lets screw modern medicine! When you have aches and pains, what do you do? I'll start with one I picked up recently. A good remedy for a tooth ache or pain in the gums is to get a clove, and just press it against the area of pain. if it starts to wear off, just bite it and quickly put it back in place. the stem works better than the bud.
