Why is that people think that word "holistic" is, somehow, synonymous with reasonable, safe and natural -- at least that's what, in my opinion, is how the concept is accepted. Well, all I can say is that people who accept every "natural" product or concept need a crash course in critical thinking.

But then, if I suffered from chronic constipation this might actually sound like a good idea ----------nah, I don't think so.

Even just "natural" doesn't mean something is safe, contrary to advertising techniques. Some of the most deadly poisons known to man are 100% natural chemicals, such as botulin, snake venom, etc.

You know that the "butt candle" is a joke, right? It's making fun of the "ear candle," which was supposed to have health benefits.

Ear candling FAQ

But you knew that.


Right???

You mean I've placed myself in this embarassing position, risked setting my house on fire (we needed new drapes anyway) and, otherwise, made an ass of myself because I thought that "this" was a "real" therapy for nothing? Uh, of course I knew that this was a spoof all along (sigh).

I think that I would prefer the constipation or the "butt candle" to the Richard Simmons option anyday.

I would love to see the instructions and diagram for the butt candle...



step 3. place ankles behind head and light match....


you better hope the candle is inserted or you might erupt a flame like Mount Vesuvius.. explain that house fire to the insurance company.

Ya see, I was feeling pretty constipated, and sticking a candle up the wazoo seemed like a neat idea . . .


Sorry Benev, I had to ask, because the nature of bulletin threads doesn't allow me to interpret your post by vocal cues or body language. Yes, I could have assumed that you meant it strictly "tongue in cheek," so to speak.

But there are some other folk on ATS/BTS for whom this could have been a serious post. I just didn't have a clear memory of who started this thread.


Burning the candle at both ends,

Dr. SC.

I think it should have been clear it was a hoax when you see no ordering information and such.................... if it was for real, there certainly would be a price list and ordering form.
