I have written on an earlier occasion how people of my parent’s generation seemed to be obsessed with ‘inner cleanliness’ and indigestion. They used to take Beecham’s Pills and Andrews Liver Salts, both laxatives, and available over the counter. Half a spoon of the latter would have a cup of water fizzing furiously. I loved to lean over the cup and let the bubbles envelop my face.
Andrews Liver Salt is a powder that relieves upset stomach, indigestion and symptoms of over-indulgence. Still available today.
