As the daughter of a surgeon, I've always been a huge fan of Western medicine. This doesn't mean I don't dig yoga, or reiki healers, it just means that I'm happy to suck down a z pack if I have phlegm in my throat or a UTI (and of course I dig fake titties, peels and eyelid surgeries).
After my most recent trip to India, I noticed something pretty dodgy. My gut was distended all the time, I had been constantly exhausted and no amount of sleep or diet was helping. Then my boyfriend Dr. Oz did an episode about friggin worms in your gut. What the??? GROSS, but I had all the telltale signs. (no worms were NOT coming out of my brown star) What did you think this sexy western surgeon suggested? 1000mg of garlic a day, papaya seeds with a tablespoon of honey and a cup of wormwood tea a day. If that isn't a hippie remedy, I don't know what is. I've been doing it for a week and I swear to teenage Jesus ( I stole that from Kyle Neven) I'm better!
Now that I'm a hippie, I hope my hygiene doesn't go next. On that note, I'm getting in the shower.
