  1. The vintage ad with the woman holding the forked stick thing reminded me of someone who dowses for water by walking over an area with a forked stick and when it dips down, there's water below, underground. I used a French translation site and it appears the woman was advertising the power to heal by dowsing, "whatever your case" (quel que soit votre cas). So she appears to think she can heal diseases by dowsing?? Very strange!

  2. Thanks Nancy....very interesting! It cracks me up all the things people tried back in the day to cure common problems.
