Hemorrhoids and varicosities are not, in general, fun to talk about or to experience. Yet, hemorrhoids and varicosities are a common occurrence for many folks, so we might as well take the best care that we can of our bodies and ourselves when they are a bit out of balance and stressed. One of the best environments for healing to take place is one of honest humor, so that is why our Spritz has such a silly name – our body feels like it is crawling with spiders and we’ve got a case of the piles! Honest and funny all at once or at least a slightly more interesting way to talk about uncomfortable condition. Examples follow:
“Honey, I’ve got spiders again!”
“A bit of the piles today it seems!”
