In the early 1970s, the late comedian George Carlin observed how programed our society was becoming to finding a quick fix to nearly every ailment with a couple of pills. “Are you feeling low? Pop pop!” he would cluck into the microphone, “you need these. Have a headache? Pop pop! Then you need these.” Anyone looking at the shelves in a pharmacy can see just how much the weight loss industry has taken this idea to its heart! To be fair, if there was a genuine quick fix for the common problems or irritations of life, then we’d all be happy to use it. In most cases, of course, a quick fix turns out to be, at best, a partial fix, and at worst, a simple placebo. Sometimes, though, the quick fix, if looked at from a slightly different angle, can deliver significant benefit.
