Professor Bordier’s cure for the common cold

Electrifying the nose to cure the common cold. The electrification would continue until "the patient finds it difficult to bear the treatment."

If it worked, I would use it to get rid of a cold. But I'm pretty sure the best it did was to temporarily relieve symptoms.

Reminds me of "The floggings will continue until morale improves."

There is a saying about cures for the common cold. They all work: they will reduce the length of your cold from one week to seven days.
