    So... your massage therapist used jazz hands on you for 4 years and now you're less toxic? Cool story.

    green tea.. liquorice root tea.. lemon tea and apple and cranberry juice. Recommended by my Docs.

    let me guess you go to a naturepath ...??? or whatever they are called/spelled...

    srs question. Is that the same as a homeopathic?

    Naturopaths usually practice homeopathy, as well as a lot of other pseudoscientific practices. My sister-in-law saw one who hooked her up to a machine that he claimed would shoot energy through her body and allow the spirits to tell him what was wrong with her. So. :indifferent:

    Ahh- thank you for the explination...

    ....And I really hope it wasn't a high voltage of electricity... :#

    Did you know that high voltage is less fatal than low voltage? Low voltage shocks are most likely to cause defib of the heart, which is very difficult to correct since your heart is still beating, but not well enough to keep you alive. High volt shocks are more likely to temporarily stop your heart, at which point your heart is more likely to resume natural rhythm on it's own. Learned it in my one electrical engineering class and I was shocked (get it)! Note: I'm not talking lighting strikes here...

    This doesn't bode well for my future of frequent Repetitive Nerve Stimulation diagnostic tests. :s

    :laugh:

    Either way, I think you'll want to avoid pretty much all (accidental) shocks since all can be fatal haha. Except static electricity caused from rubbing a balloon on your hair or your feet on the carpet. That's just funny shiz. Especially when you do it to your 2 year old nephew who isn't sure you're a fun person. He learns that you ARE a fun person BECAUSE you made the balloons all stick to his head.

    And um.. obviously if it's administered by a real doctor, you don't need to be concerned. I was talking about accidental shocks.

    I think the Reiki "healers" are some of the most derpiest of the holistic, alternate "medicine crowd."

    Let me put my hands on you and heal you.

    lulz

    My MIL is a Reiki Master..... she sends her healing energy to me long distance, from NJ to Alabama.
    :s:p:p:p
    As long as she stays up north, I'm good. B)

    Lmao! That made me LOL!!

    Honestly, I'd be hiring a new MT. It took her FOUR YEARS? Criminey.

    It could have been mercury due to thimerosal, lead due to acid dew, and PCBs from flouridated water!

    heh.

    Not very much since the toxins "had gone down." Down, but not "out."

    The fleecings will continue!

    You people need to brush up on your history. In much the same way as your village doctor was also your barber and your dentist was also a religious interrogator in medieval Europe, a masseuse and nutritionist were combined professions in North America in 2011. Eventually, those fields separated into differing professions with separate skillsets – I think this happened in mid-2012.

    so you regularly get medical advice from a massage therapist??
    Woosh!

    :smiley:

    Yep.

    I'm just going to go ahead and post this for the lurkers, about the essential oils thing and doTERRA specifically.

    http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/doterra-multilevel-marketing-of-essential-oils/

    Guilty -- I've been lurking. New here, but not to losing weight. I love this thread. I love this crowd. I usually hate internet forums because of the B.S. people buy into. I usually end up saying something that gets the moderator after me. So I'm just snorking at your snarking. Please don't ever let me respond to a post about Drs. Phil or Oz.

    I would have ESC ESC ESC right out of here if this group had taken the toxin flushes, high colonics and naturapathy stuff seriously. You all ROCK. (Well, most of you.)

    Thank you <3 That's the Super Mega Colon Cleanse killing off all the toxins for ya.
    I can say without a doubt in my mind that if a bunch of zombies came after me... my colon would cleanse itself quite nicely and very quickly.

    You go right ahead and respond to Drs Phil and Oz posts, (especially because you are smart enough to know how to pluralize those nouns.) I have a hunch you will find agreement here.

    Well, I do use a mix of peppermint and rosemary essential oil when I soak my feet in epsom salts. Does a good job of keeping the stink away. Of course I buy mine from a company that sells soap making ingredients so I get them really cheap (well except the rose essential oil, that stuff is $30 for 1/4 oz. Good thing I only need 2 drops in each batch of cold cream I make).

    Health benefits? Maybe tea tree oil because it is a known antiseptic but I don't use it because it irritates my skin.

    Peppermint oil is great for keeping ants away. I mix up my own cleaning spray with vinegar, Dr. Bronner' s peppermint soap, and few drops of peppermint oil and spray my counters down with it.

    I put a few drops of tea tree oil in my kids shampoo, it's supposed to keep lice away, and our grammar school is a breeding ground for those suckers. I don't know for sure if it works, but it doesn't hurt anything and we haven't had lice yet.
