Years ago (probably about 20) I visited a new doctor for the first time. Yes, she was a new doctor and yes, it was my first visit. I won’t reveal her name, just Dr X is what I’ll call her. She was located in Howard County and I’m guessing she still practices here, too.

Dr X was delightful and announced very defensively that she believes in pill therapy and believes in 100% prescribing a drug for every ailment and symptom. Dr X wanted to know if I had a problem with that. I hate to use my age as an excuse for my naivete, but that is probably what it was. I didn’t realize at the time that this would be detrimental to my health. I didn’t realize that I was agreeing to putting sometimes harmful chemicals into my young body.

Now, many years later, I’m a firm believer and devout member of the club of holistic body folk who use alternative modalities to heal and prevent illness. If you’ve seen any of my posts, you’re aware that I’ve been getting acupuncture since about 2011 when my Dad died. At the time I begun treatment with my friend Barb who was still in school (then call TAI Sophia now called Maryland University of Integrative Health) If memory serves, I was her graduation project. I could go on and on about the high jinks and hilarity of those first years in acupuncture treatment, but I digress.

Ok, one quicky, I wasn’t aware that I wanted to quit smoking. In fact, I had just purchased a brand new pack of smokes. I walked into the treatment room and announced that maybe one day I was gonna quick. Barb promptly tossed the whole, new pack into the garbage and gave me treatments to quit. I haven’t smoked much at all since then… pretty cool.

So everyone always asks…do the needles hurt? That’s also a conversation for another day. The quick answer is, no, they don’t. For goodness sakes the needles are thinner than my hair, but when they hit a point that really needs it…sometimes it’s a zinger!

Ok, on with the reason I’m writing.

Since the earlier days I’ve now learned that I can create my own medicine chest! If I simply attend some casual and fun evening sessions at Sage Health Centre (only 30 bucks a pop) I can learn how to heal myself! I wouldn’t be so adamant, but I use essential oils for everything! Plus, Theresa Girolami is now my acupuncturist for the last 3 or so years (she’s Barb’s friend and mentor so it’s ok) and she’s an herbalist and teacher.

For an evening of fun and something to heal you, too, I suggest going see Sage Health Centre and taking a class. It’s fun, it’s safe and you’ll go home with a healing souvenir, too! Call them or visit their website at sagehealthcentre.com 410-544-5155 and tell them Julia sent you.
