Sure enough, bring a bunch of my age group together and the talk gets around to healthcare. One of my farfetched theories is that one just feels better when one talks about it.
Doc Gellenthien, my country doctor father, always had “the cure” for whatever came along, stashed away somewhere. Not all of these cures came out of a medicine bottle. In fact, many of them were a part of our everyday life. I assisted him a time or two when we had medical emergencies with our animals.
