Tandy recently helped me to wean myself off medication that was making me feel ill, by introducing me to tissue salts Nos 6 and 11. To hasten the eradication of the residual toxins left in my body by these medicines, my friend Sally introduced me to charcoal capsules, which absorb toxins in the body and flush them out. A word of warning: charcoal capsules will reduce the efficacy of any drugs ingested, so use with caution if you are on any chronic meds or are taking birth control pills.
A while ago, I popped into a local photographer’s studio and found the man – uncharacteristically – lying on his sofa, instead of being at work at his editing suite. I made a snide remark about the joys of a life of leisure and he responded by removing his sock and showing me his gangrene-blackened foot. He explained that his condition arose out of ignoring bad circulation. His foot was actually rotting, but the timely intervention of a specialist had made the prognosis for saving the foot a good one.
I was deeply unsettled; my own feet were often badly affected by bad circulation, especially when I stood at my stove for long periods. I also have the worst habit ever: I cross my legs while sitting at my desk and this makes my tingling feet a ghoulish shade of purple. I resolved to stick to an exercise regime and to seek out a natural aid to increasing circulation. This, I found, was to be found in Tissue Salt No 1 / Calc Fluor. Hey presto, a rapid improvement and a spring in my step, I no longer feel like a snail when I walk.
On the subject of snails; From Scientific American, July 1911:
“Snails are now being sold in Paris, the only genuine part of which are the shells. It is said that the imitation of the real article is so close that many epicures have a high opinion of the sham product. Snail-shells, it seems, are brought from the dustmen and rag-pickers, and after being cleaned are filled with ‘lights’ or cats’ meat, the soft flesh being cut into corkscrew form, so as to fit the shell, by a skillfully designed machine. The receptacle is then sealed with liquid fat, and the escargot is ready for the consumer. The secret came out during a lawsuit brought by a man employed at the snail-factory to recover damages for a finger mutilated by one of the machines.”
Eeeeeeu! Escargot, anyone?
