A Story Of Bacon & Lard

Michael Heap & Windy Dryden (Hypnotherapy: A Handbook, 1991) wrote …

“Warts: These are viral in origin and respond to suggestions under hypnosis that they will disappear.”


So why not use auto-hypnosis?

Auto-suggestion has no strings attached.

Exogenous suggestive-persuasive treatment always has strings attached.


Jeremy Kingston (Healing Without Medicine, 1976) wrote …

“In fact, as Professor H.J. Eysenck showed in his experiments with schoolchildren, a treatment by suggestion using a magic picture of a child’s warts is more effective than the orthodox medical treatment of burning them off with acid.”


Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626) is famous for originating the “scientific method.”

Let the card-carrying skeptics explain the following.

Sir Francis Bacon wrote …

“I had from my childhood a wart upon one of my fingers; afterward, when I was about sixteen years old, being then at Paris, there grew upon both my hands a number of warts, at the least an hundred in a month’s space. The English ambassador’s lady, who was a woman far from superstition told me one day she would help me away with my warts; whereupon she got a piece of lard with the skin on, and rubbed the warts all over with the fat side; and amongst the rest that wart which I had from my childhood; then she nailed the piece of lard, with the fat toward the sun, upon a post of her chamber window, which was to the south. The success was that within five weeks’ space all the warts were quite away, and that wart which I had so long endured for company. But at the rest I did little marvel because they came in a short time, and might go away in a short time again; but the going away of that which had stayed so long doth yet stick to me.”


One of Bacon’s four Idols of the Mind was “the following of academic dogma and not asking asking questions of the world.”

    I angrily told someone, “If anyone ever tells you you’re an [bleep], you believe them!”

    Then I walked away and kicked a wooden pillar … and felt something give way down south.

    It took me a year to get rid of the anal fissures I acquired that day.

    Hi Atom,
    on ORN Dr Daniels swears by cooked ham hocks, pigs feet for connective tissue restoration/repair of skin/tissue/joint issues.
    I can’t bring myself to eat this stuff so what would your food choices be to get similar benefits/results ?
