Snobsville Mums Online – The Hippy

Gemma Smith:

So, I wanted to talk about something really serious today and see what everyone thinks. I’m a bit nervous, you know, because normally we stick to polite conversation about prams and stuff but today I wanted to talk about something super serious. Natural Therapies. My integrative medical naturopathy specialist has recommended a 12 day detox and a course of 6 months worth of anti pro biotics. She thinks I’m full of toxins. I drink Combuccha every day, how could I have let this happen? Has anyone else had this experience? It looks expensive, but thankfully she has all the products at her practice. Oh, she also thinks I may have re-sprained my subluxations so recommends a chiro for a few weeks. Her husband is one, and luckily he can fit me in.

Marley Jackson:

Oh Boy. Can’t we just talk about circumcision instead?

Tiffany Beau Gahn:

Don’t be too hard on yourself darl. What does your GP say? Too complicated for me! Are you feeling okay?

Gemma Smith:

Yes, fine. Just a bit tired. I don’t go to a GP unless I have to. I find them a bit too clinical, and you know… medical.

Phillipa Francis:

I don’t know about all that. I hedge my bets. I see a doctor, a chiro, a kineisiologist and a psychic once a month just to be sure. It’s a bit like religion. I don’t really believe any of it but I go to church just in case. They all tell me different things, but I try to follow everything.

Marley Jackson:

Wow Phillipa, that must be exhausting! You must be cranky and tired all the time. Actually it explains a few things.

Elizabeth Hartley:

The only specialist I consult is my sommelier. He provides me with all the medicinals I need.

Gemma Smith:

Oh, I don’t drink. I’m on an alkaline diet and my nutritionist/reiki therapist says its too acidic.

Tiffany Beau Gahn:

Really? I kind of thought you were hitting wine o’clock early each day. Just based on your posts, I mean.

Gemma Smith:

Yeah, I get kind of spacey on the days I fast. And I’m not sure, but my home fermenting kit may have actually fermented something it shouldn’t have last time. My latest creation smells like vodka.

Marley Jackson:

Huh. I thought you were just stoned all the time. Anyway, I’d recommend you see a GP – like a qualified doctor – to get your iron levels checked if you feel ‘spacey’.

Gemma Smith:

My Naturopathic Iridologist is medically trained in alternative medicine. And isn’t iron a toxin? (PS, I do indulge in delights of the herbal kind once in a while. Its natural though, so she’s happy.)

Marley Jackson:

No, iron is kind of important. Do you eat any red meat? If you have a diet deficient in iron you may need to supplement.

Gemma Smith:

No, I’m a strict vegan and I only eat foods that are fermented or raw.

Tiffany Beau Gahn:

Jim Beam is fermented. You can drink that.

Elizabeth Hartley:

Too much sugar in spirits. The best bet is to calorie restrict during the day and drink champagne. Less calories.

Gemma Smith:

So no one has suffered from toxicity? Or sprained subluxations? I don’t understand, I do everything I’m supposed to for my health. I’ve never even heard of this, how is this possible? There’s so many pitfalls around in our lifestyles today. Did you know, a friend from my Organic Vegan Mummas who Babywear group was told by her alternative health specialist that she suffers from dihydrogen monoxide toxicity? Sounds terrifying! She has to sleep with a Salt lamp on and bathe in organic epsolm salts mined from an underground salt depository to flush her system.

Marley Jackson:

Um, Gemma do you know what dihydrogen monoxide is?

Gemma Smith:

No! And I don’t want to. Makes me want to go on an all liquid detox diet just thinking about it!

Marley Jackson:

Well, I’d still recommend a doctor. You know what they say, if it works its not alternative, its medicine.

Gemma Smith:

I prefer not to be tied to stereoptypes, or what the ‘government’ tells me is good for me.

SMO Admin:

We don’t allow medical advise ladies. You’ve all been warned.

Marley Jackson:

Really? I wasn’t offering advice I just suggested she see a doctor.

SMO Admin:

We’re pretty strict on that Marley.

Tiffany Beau Gahn:

Well then you’d better head over to the circumcision post. That’s going off with ‘medical’ opinions!

SMO Admin:

I’m shutting down comments. Look ladies. I’m drinking something fermented myself, (thank you Margarita) and I can’t be bothered to police this post. Plus the circumcision post is way more entertaining. Peace out.
