Taking Mental Note
Pentheraphobia: Irrational fear of your mother-in-law
"Those who have no time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness." -- Edward Stanley, the 15th earl of Derby (1826-1893)
Seven historical remedies for migraine headaches:
1. Bloodletting: Extracting some blood via scalpel or leech to drain the body of bad "humors" or fluids.
2. Garlic. Make a small incision in temple, insert peeled garlic, leave for 15 hours.
3. Cupping, which involved inverting hot vessels on body to ostensibly draw out poisons, similar to bloodletting.
4. Trepanation: Drilling or cutting holes in the skull.
5. Dead moles (tied to the head).
