Detox Month

aum mani padme hum

I recently returned to the States after 3.5 months of post-med school backpacking through Latin America. During this time, I learned about indigenous remedies, explored a wide variety of healing modalities, and connected with colleagues I met studying tropical medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health a few years ago. It's been a luxurious week of clean running tapwater, abundant TP, comfortable beds (the same one every night!), native language, back relief (from not carrying a pack), plenty of indulgent food, and celebratory adult beverages with the family.

Health Tips

Quotes from Gandhi's Health Guide

"The world is compounded of the five elements- earth, water, air, fire, and ether. So, too, is our body. It is a sort of miniature world. Hence, the body stands in need of all the elements in due proportion- pure earth, pure water, pure fire or sunlight, pure air, and open space. When any one of these falls short of its due proportion, illness is caused in the body."

"The Universe within reflects the Universe without."
