Best prescription ever?

I saw my doctor today and she told me to eat some chocolate every day for the next month.

Now that's advice I'm more than happy to follow!

Anyone else have some examples of enjoyable medical advice?

(For anyone who wishes to have the same diet, the downside is you have to first be on the slender side, get very stressed and loose 6kg in 3 months causing you to become rather underweight...)

I was pretty ill during some examinations, and I was prescribed an hour's nap in the middle of every exam.

I took all my exams in an empty student's room, and somebody invigilated me even whilst I slept

Re: Best prescription ever?

I was told to eat dark chocolate when I was pregnant to boost my iron, the same woman told me to eat fortified cereal, I pointed outvthat it is fortified because maize inhibits iron absorbtion so is actually iron neutral, she gave me a bad look, but I said, don't worry, I'll follow your advise on the chocolate side.

Pleanty of pasta, pizza and good solid carbs will do the job too.

Re: Best prescription ever?

Dark chocolate is apparently helpful if you have a tickly cough.

Not me, but my mum.

For each of 3 births, she was admitted to hospital early because of blood pressure issues and low iron levels.

Whilst there, she was "prescribed, every day, a bottle of Guinness - which she hated, but it explains a lot, in my case.
