Printed Phone Book Use, I Found One Use, A Relief

Michael wrote about how useless printed phone books are. I agreed.

If anyone is interested, Michael (Michael’s Blog) may still have the printed phone book for sale – Phone Book for Sale! Back in January, Michael wrote about how useless printed phone books are. I agreed.

Not too long ago, we received another printed phone book at our door, and probably everyone in Aurora did too. Chris Watts (from Temporary Insanity) had a nice commentary in his post, “They printed the whole internet into a book…and it’s free?” I did not object.

But then I think there is still hope for the printed phone books.

On the weekend, I visited Nature’s Emporium in Newmarket to buy some natural lollipops. Matthew is going through candy mania, and we are trying to avoid anything with colours and artificial flavours.

On my way out, I picked up a free magazine, Alive, Canada’s Natural Health and Wellness Magazine, the September issue.

How can a printed phone book possibly be healthy for you?

Later that day, I started to read. I hit the Ask the Experts page. A whole page to answer this question: “I’m suffering from constipation. How can I deal with it naturally?

We are getting closer.

Caroline Farquhar, RHN, specializes in natural digestive care, detoxification, and internal cleansing. The answer is coming from the expert. She had nine natural remedies.

Remedy one … blah blah blah. Remedy number nine – read on.

Position yourself correctly when using the toilet. Keep your feet raised on a step-stool or phone book for proper eliminative posture (knees above the waist).”

Disclaimer: Consult your physician or other health care professional before using to determine that the thickness of your phone book is right for you.

How funny, Kelley started to do this a month ago after reading something similar. She uses a footstool we now keep in the bathroom for this purpose. It serves double duty for the children to access the sink.

Yes and you can also use to raise up children at the dinner table so they can reach a good food. Seems like phone book health benefits out weigh the advertising benefits.
