eat dirt


last week as mr h developed an upset stomach from taking antibiotics
his doctor said that she would start some probiotics to help with the

hum i thought
i know what he needs
i told the dr
you know what he needs is a little bite of my good ole community garden
its full of all the bacteria and fungi that a person would need

ive seen ms b taking a bite of some of it
no i didnt tell her mom
what happens in granddaddys garden stays in granddaddys garden

the dr just smiled
those granddaddys and their humor she probably thought
she didnt realize i was serious

after a return to my garden i took a pinch of compost put it in a baggy
you now a pinch like the old people use to do who dip snuff
when no one was looking
i took a pinch between my thumb and pointy finger
dipped it on his tongue
well just smacked and worked his tongue real good
no he didnt fuss or seem like he didnt like the taste

one thing i noticed was
thats when he made the turn around we were looking for

i was real reluctant to write this
since i dont want to lose my mr h priviledges

you grandparents know about those right

i felt better doing this after i read this article about using dirt to fight infection
thats right
not just any old dirt
clay dirt
wonder why they didnt use compost

they used blue clay from oregon which has iron in it
it seemed to work against the two bacteria that most of us have heard of
e coli
staph aureus ie mrsa

heres proof dirt is good for you
it kills the bad germs

it was with mr h
he ate dirt
he got better

the problem is i cant really tell anyone about it

for the record
i really didnt feed the compost to mr h
i sure thought about it
i know it would have helped
