  • Gandhi

    Ghandi was a very spiritual man that traveled all over India. He walked everywhere he went, and since he had no shoes, developed tremendous callouses on his feet. He also meditated and fasted regularly. This fasting, coupled with the rather poor food when he did eat, had a profound negative effect on his health. In addition, the combination produced very foul breath. So, what did all this make Ghandi?

    A super-callused fragile mystic, plagued with halitosis.


    Husband has HCM.
    3 kids - ages 23, 21, & 19. All presently clear of HCM.
