Término o frase en español: A viejos males grandes remedios
The expression in Spanish is:

"A grandes males grandes remedios" The kudoz question is a modified marketing slogan based on that expression.

I'd like to know:

1. The translation for the original expression
2. Suggestions for the marketing slogan (They don't have to be literal translations).

Thank you

Big problems need [/require] big solutions
