Where this can become fun is if their cure is just a placebo, but they tell people that it will certainly work for anyone who isn't secretly a pedophile.  Now every client becomes your best salesman -- either it works for them (placebo, not worrying about it) or it doesn't (Oh, tiny gods!!! I can't tell anyone it didn't work!!!).

Until some poor sod doesn't have i work for him. His wife will know it doesn't work, and then everyone wonders if it worked, why has she just left him and taken the kids with her? This guy is not going to be your best sales man!

Ah.  Good point.  Can't get the Emperor's New Clothes effect unless she is somehow also to blame...

pixie dust?

mineral baths? perhaps in a sacred spring?


pine oil is an ingrediant in vaporub... with vaporubs penchant for increasing circulation, that might actually work, though I am sure the nubile attractive slave's massaging wouldn't go amiss either.

(actually wouldn't the unicorn horn be, uh.. more for the wife?  ;D)
