the importance of fibre


as the body ages, a lot of things slow down or don’t work so well. the gimcrack’s recent gastro outbreak loosened quite a few ageing backed up bowels in a most unpleasant manner but that’s all behind us now.

unfortunately, some patients have once again found themselves in a clogged up state despite our nagging to drink more fluids and eat more prunes and above all to stop straining as it aggravates those nasty haemorroids. I’ve even threatened them with using this:


of course, it will only help the milder cases. when there is no alternative left nursemyra books them in with Dr. Faustus who uses an ancient and effective instrument with 100% success. but please, take nursemyra’s advice, eating fibre is a lot less painful
