Don't try this at home

Now here is one I bet you have not tried !

I was reading yesterday about some aspects of folk magic amongst different cultures in regards to shamanic type healing. Fascinating stuff that is mostly removed from reality, but occasionally a thread of truth could be found that fits in with modern medical understanding. A lot of stuff that is amusing to the modern mind, such as writing a letter to the mice infesting your home to leave and so forth. Many strange uses for onions and eggs in regards to ills stemming from bad relations with fleas , ticks and faeries as well ( attacks of arthritis used to be attributed to "elf-shot").

As I read through, I found a very interesting remedy for weight loss. Take an egg, tell it to take your extra fat away, rub it all over your body and take the egg to a crossroads and bury it. No counting points, no need for a heart rate monitor, no hours in the gym, just you, an egg and a quiet intersection of two dirt roads. What was Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and The Biggest Loser thinking when they created their programs when the solution is clearly a lot easier than estimated ???

Well - it certainly won't hurt! It often makes me smile when I read about the history of health and the discoveries everyone thought were "true!"
