Julianna and I stopped at Borders today to pick up a book called Prescription for Nutritional Healing, which is approximately the size and weight of Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance.
Side note: You may be wondering why such a healthy family would need what sounds like instructions for recovering from an obscure dietary disease. Explanation: in science this year, the highschoolers are studying natural medicine – from my observation, the program appears to be “How to Solve Any Medical Problem Using Only Contents of Your Spice Cabinet.” If MacGuyver were here, he’d be great at this, producing his mortar and pestle at the drop of a hat to make dangerous looking mixtures for curing any ailment. The building block of “spice” remedies is, in case you didn’t know, CAYENNE PEPPER. It’s true… this simple red powder is equivalent to a miracle drug. (It probably cures cancer, but initial tests have proved inconclusive.)
We’ve entered a new phase at home of strange and unusual treatments. I won’t go into the details here because:
1) you’d be concerned about our *mental* health, let alone physical.
2) you’d be terrified of getting hurt while visiting here or even mentioning an injury at our home for fear of what might be produced from the spice cabinet.
3) most likely you wouldn’t believe me.
This is only the beginning… now that we have the Prescription for Nutritional Healing, who knows what could happen. As long as there’s no Windex involved I think we’ll be fine. 😉
