On the Hippie Side

I went to a talk on medicinal eating given by a local herbalist turned MD. Coincidentally, they are involved in the cultural shamanic tradition I was associated with via my parent's marriage into a rather elite, whack-a-doo family. (Yes, there are jet-set shamans out there. At least one.)

I can't tell if that's a good or bad sign.

However, the last pulmo was also involved with this culture and they were fabulous. So it could be good.

I'm a little superstitious at times, in case you haven't noticed. Always trying to read the tea leaves.

And yes, I had a strange childhood. Shrunken heads in the linen closet and all that jazz. Christian minister on one side and indigenous shaman with a PhD on the other. Psychedelic.

So, while I disagree with this alternative MD's advocacy of vegan raw foodism and they don't like low carb, it might be interesting to see what they have to say about my situation.

Maybe there's an herb for that.

PS: Feeling better today although the asthma is all over the place for some reason. I had to break out the albuterol even.
