Rock the Sure Shot

Mac's school offered a workshop on homeopathy for colds and flu tonight. I really enjoyed the chat with the homeopath, and although I'm not willing to turn the kids' care over to her, I think I've decided to see her for my chronic headaches.

I have considered homeopathy before, but then dismissed it because I imagined it was too expensive.

Last year, I had that crazy migraine that landed me in the hospital, as well as a few follow-up visits; so my migraines ended up costing about $3000.00 out-of-pocket.

Even if I had to go to a max number of homeopathic appointments and have periodic phone consultations, I'd be spending only a fraction of that. And surely all the Aleve I've been taking to stave off the migraines that hang out behind my eyeballs isn't good for my liver.

I think I'll go to her, and then I'll give a full report. I liked visiting and blogging about the acupuncturist, and this will probably be just as fun.

I'm glad you went. Were there many there?

I like this idea. Would you recommend your acupuncturist? I've been thinking about going.

I LOVE this idea! Check out - Michele Brookhaus is my homeopath and she give lots of tips on her website. I think you'll be very happy with this choice. I have gotten relief from a number of issues that I won't recount here! ;-)

Thanks for the support! Mols, I was the only parent at the workshop!!

Jdoc - my acupuncturist was great! It's a husband/wife team. They're extremely affordable, and they're very kind. They are at Three Treasures Community Acupuncture.

I agree with this idea! There is so much to learn about our bodies and how to keep them healthy. I am looking forward to up-dates and ideas. Will check out Martha's website.

I would like to have some acupuncture or acupressure. I need more vibrant energy.
