Here’s the deal; we hurt to heal.

The sick spend up a gale when snake oil’s on sale.

Avoid extremes; too much water can kill you.

God built a zest into everyday’s rest.

We count our old by pills not gold.

The plants are medicines: we weren’t left to fight alone.

Medical billing is a like gambling; someone throws a random number on the table and another scrapes up the cash.

The physicians of the past keep us shelling out cash.

The cure that ruins one life saves another.

Minestrone trumps phlebotomy, so mothers trump medicine.

If the father at the birth is not well, give him an epidural at the base of his skull.

A conversation with the surgeon should never be one-sided; we find that out when the wrong leg is beside us.

“You can bend over the table now” ensures open spaces at the doctor’s parking lot.
