I used to go to a wonderful acupuncturist who could help just about anyone with any ailment.He was also a very smart and nice man. I would often leave the office with prescriptions for various Chinese herbs many of which he compounded himself. Occasionally these prescriptions came in bottles ready made in China with English translations. My favorite one promise to cure "verve pain."
I tried to explain the word verb to the doc (it's not a common word after all) and from then on, the labels had the v crossed out. Too bad, I think we all need a cure for lack of verve.
