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.
