The Four Humors
~ by TPO ~
The Four Humors :===> Fire, Earth, Water, Air
Quartet of liquids: ===> yellow bile, black bile, white phlegm, and red blood
The key to good health was thought to be an ideal balance among the four humors. Danger arose if one predominated, so periodic voiding was crucial. For the most part, the body took care of this naturally: black bile, yellow bile, and phlegm were expelled through excrement, sweat, tears, and nasal discharge.
“I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion, and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.”
