From an email I just received at work. I know some of you will find it funny. Others can ignore it.

You can do the same thing for a fandom sample of Reconveyances...

She meant, of course, "random."

tamheals found out the other day (from the naturopath who diagnosed me with a dairy allergy) that she's allergic to corn. I asked if I needed to stop telling corny jokes.

My dad developed that one at age 35. Corn and chocolate, of all things. And right after his vasectomy. Lord knows how all that could be connected, but he thinks it is.

That was funny. I needed some giggles today.

I should try and find a naturopath around here, but somehow I doubt I'd be too successful. I'm really curious to see what all I'm allergic to and/or should avoid. I'm beginning to think milk, though other dairy doesn't bother me. I'm such a freak. Any input on how to go about finding someone reputable?

I'd think KC is big enough to find somebody, though I don't know about quality. If Mizzou has similar social effects on the town, you might look in Columbia too.

As for finding them, I'd check the Yellow Pages in addition to ads in alternative health sorts of publications. To see if they're any good, call them up and ask them about Western medicine. I wouldn't trust a naturopath who is categorically anti-Western medicine. There are conditions (from broken bones to surgery to genetic disorders) for which your typical doctor has the best solution. A good naturopath will look at things most doctors don't consider, like food allergies and body alignment, and use methods most doctors don't, like muscle testing and accupuncture. And, of course, they should be a licensed ND. It looks like Missouri doesn't require licensure, but Kansas does. Even in a state that doesn't require licensure, I wouldn't go to someone who doesn't meet the requirements for an ND. And don't go to anyone you get a weird vibe from.

You should be prepared to take a look at everything in your life, from what food you eat to what drugs (legal and illegal) you take to how much sleep you get to how you feel at different times of the day. The idea of holistic medicine is to solve the problems you face and then seemingly unrelated symptoms will go away.

Tamara's visit cost $350, but it was worth every penny. When I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy at age 13 my doctor visits dropped by an order of magnitude. By removing corn from her diet, Tamara hasn't needed to take psych medications. Those sorts of savings pay for the visit in a matter of months, not to mention the health benefits.
