Step Away from the Tylenol!

7th Annual Alternative Health Fair

Via MorgueFile

When some of us get sick, we down several Tylenol with a swig of Mountain Dew, rub some Icy Hot on our aching, old muscles and binge watch HGTV shows until we pass out for half a day. Others prefer more alternative and less chemically inclined methods of treating their ailments. Mama's Minerals (800 20th Street NW, Suite B) once again teaches us how to take care of our bodies without clearing the pharmacy shelves at Walgreens. Their 7th annual Alternative Health Fair will take place on Saturday, Aug. 1, from 10am to 3pm. It's free, and everyone and anyone is welcome.

The event hopes to introduce and encourage alternative practices to medicine and health, like kinesiology, massage, aromatherapy, yoga, chakra balancing, energy psychology and healing crystals. You don’t have to know jack shit about alternative medicine to be interested in it and learn how it might benefit you. And if you think that stuff is for “hippies,” you’re kinda right, but who wants a life sentence of chewing up Tylenols? Give it a chance; you might be surprised by how much better you can feel!
