Number 5

The number five has become quite important to me. A few years ago, I had a lingering cough. It was a nuisance during the day and at night I would wake up choking, gasping for breath. I had tried every cough remedy I could find but nothing seemed to appease it. At the time we didn't have any pets so there seemed to be no explanation for it.

Every time I went out shopping I would scour the shelves looking for a cough treatment that I had not yet tried ... then one day, whilst in a health store, I came across a display of tissue salts. At the time I had never heard of these before. This was my first introduction to homeopathy. The tissue salts contain a minute amount of something which allegedly acts on the body similarly to an inoculation. I picked up pot after pot and eventually found 'New Era Biochemic Tissue Salts Number 5' in my hand.

The little tub bravely declared "A biochemic remedy for minor respiratory ailments and for coughs, colds and children's feverish ailments" with 450 moulded tablets.

I purchased the pot and placed four of the small pills in the centre of my tongue as directed. The tablets were tiny and sweet and dissolved slowly. When first taking them, if the complaint is severe, the directions advise that the process should be repeated every half-an-hour until symptoms subside ....... amazingly, the tiny tablets worked. I have been a fan of tissue salts ever since.

One Christmas, a long while ago, my husband treated me to a bottle of Chanel No 5. I sprayed it onto my neck and wrists and sucked in it's fragrance ... I don't know whether it's my imagination but deep within its smell, I fancy that I can smell the faintest suggestion of daffodil. Since that very first application I have never used any other perfume ... I just adore its soft, sweet, haunting, feminine smell.

So you see ... the number five has become quite important to me.

What affinity with the number 5. Glad to hear that your are not longer having the cough. I used to have a friend who is having chronic cough too and sometimes when he was coughing, it seemed as though he was having much pain.

Hi Polly,
I have never heard of these tablets before. They sound just fabulous. I wonder if we have them over here in the states?

This I will definitely look into.

And well as for the perfume. I love that fragrance also. I love everything about their brand.

I even love all of the movies and books about her life.

I just love Coco and everything about her and her brand.

I hope you have a fantastic week end.

Love and hugs,

Just a little note Shinade - but it is alleged the the Queen takes a full range of homeopathic remedies with her whenever she leaves the shores of Britain for another country.

I am sure that they will be available throughout most countries in the world as they are now a recognised cure for a wide range of aflictions. Their doses are so infintesimal that it is truly a wonder that they work but it is said that it tricks the body into repairing itself. I have tried quite a few of the range and every time I try a new one I say to myself 'there is no way that this one will work' but each time I have been proved wrong. At least up until now - they have them for all kinds of problems so it's worth taking a look.

I daresay that they will be available in pharmacies/chemists but if some of the range is on this website: http://www.superliving.co.uk/pharmacy/new-era.html

This link is to one of my favourite sites: What Really Works and this gives you an idea of how they work and other information regarding them: http://www.whatreallyworks.co.uk/start/Homeopathy.asp?article_ID=1390

I hope that this will be a help if you feel that you would like to find out a little more about them.

I hope that you too have a marvellous weekend. I think I will have to try and catch up on some of my posts including a meme and some awards but I have been out Christmas Shopping the last few days ... not bought much but at least I have made a start. lol

Great information here, Plyy my friend. I never heard of this, too, not until I've read your post. Thanks for sharing. I always have cough and making matters worse when I have asthma attacks.

Thanks so much for this great info. Hope you are better now.

have a fab weekend!
