The Magic Of Saliva
According to old Malay folks, there are a few tips
concerning the use of saliva as medicine. It is said that if a new born baby
has a fever, then the mother or father must lick the crown of the baby, its
palms and soles. The licking should start on the left side of the baby. If this
is done, then the body temperature of the baby will gradually come down.
Besides that, saliva also always used to cure minor cut
wounds. If a finger is accidently cut or bruised, then one should quickly put
the finger into his/her mouth. However, if other part of the body is wounded,
then one should wet one finger with his/her own saliva then recite Selawat 7x
then apply the saliva onto the wound.
If a child still cannot speak at 3 years old, then the child’s
tongue is pulled out and a ring is rubbed against the child’s tongue. The old
folks say that this will stimulate the child’s saliva so that the saliva will
be produced naturally and not hold stagnant in the mouth. Consequently the
child will be able to speak fluently thereafter.
The most awkward tip to our modern ears is that if a boy has
a small dick, his mother will be asked to such the boy’s dick once. According to
the old belief, this is for stimulation only and not meant to do incest or
erotic act. However awkward it sounds, the old people are quite confident that it
is a very effective way to increase the size of the child's dick.
Many old folks also lick their own the painful part of their
body because according to them, by doing so their pain will quick to recover.
This is probably a copy from some animal behaviour that they observed such as
cats and tigers.
Of course, if one is still following above tips now-a-days,
then people will think that there is something wrong with this person because
saliva may carry many bacteria and may cause disease to spread. Spitting is
also considered an offensive act when it is done in front of general public.
More so if we are to spit into the face or the body of another person. This
type of action can cause conflicts because spitting is a sign of contempt and
challenge to the person being spitted at.
