The bounty of nature

“I know about that stuff you just told him about … ”

She tried to recall the name and pronunciation of Echinaforce. I was sitting with her in her office, discussing finance for a car I had just bought. .”Echinaforce is the name of the herbal medicine I was telling the salesman to take to keep well through autumn and winter.” I helped her to remember. “Yes! That’s it! Ag! I use it all the time. Very good. It gets rid of any sniff or sneeze in a day or two!” she enjoyed telling me. Her big, brown eyes lively and shiny. This was  another  way  for  her  to  bond  with  her  prospective  customer,  I  thought!  The  salesman  was  listening  to  our conversation, standing in the doorway.

“Yes!” I answered, and walked to the A Vogel range of medicines. “You need to start taking Echinaforce daily for a long time. This herbal medicine was the flagship product in Dr Vogel’s Swiss clinic. People came from far and wide to  get  hold  of  a  bottle  of  this  preparation  made  from  fresh  plants.  Even  today  the  Bioforce  company  prepares Echinaforce according to the recipe of A Vogel!” I told her with conviction.
