Okay, okay, don't panic. I 'm really not into voodoo dolls or anything crazy like that. BUT I am seeing a Naturopath. Don't I sound all hip and California? "I am seeing a Naturopath!" Well, he is really a chiropractor who also does naturopathic healing. The reason I think it is hip is because my older sister who does live in California and IS very hip, happens to have her own Herbologist which is similar to a naturopath! Therefor, that makes it HIP and I like my new hipness! Is that kinda like peer pressure?
Anyway, the reason I am seeing this naturopath is because I have a big canker sore problem. My mom says they come from lying but I'm getting older and I'm starting think maybe she made that up! So, I've had chronic cankers for about a year now. It isn't a ton of fun and when one of my friends and I counted 23 in my mouth the other day she called a doctor that she worked for for ten years. He is the naturopath. He told me to come in and see him and we would get rid of them. He did muscle testing on me (that is what he refers to as the VOODOO!) and found out what minerals I am deficient in thus causing the cankers. This all started when I was pregnant with Meg causing the deficiency and the minerals were never able to regenerate in my system. I have been going in for shots that is a cocktail of all the minerals that I am deficient in. Interesting huh?
So, here is a funny little story about getting one of the shots. The shot happens to be in my, uh rear end. Sorry if that is too much information but hey that's the truth! ( I wouldn't want to fib and get anymore cankers!) So, as the doctor was giving me the injection he was singing the country song that was on the radio. Every time he didn't know a word he would replace it with, "bum bum bum." This cracked me up considering the location of my shot. My thoughts to him were, "Maybe when you are actually giving someone a shot in their bum, you should come up with a different word to hum." He laughed and agreed. He said he would work on that for next time! We'll see what he comes up with.
By the way...I am not sharing whether I think the shots are working or not yet. I'm so afraid to jinx it. I'll let you all know in a week or so! Wish me luck!
