Am i becoming a hippie?

What supplements or herbal remedies is everyone taking?

I have always been extremely sceptical of them but started Aloe Vera, Cod liver oil caps and Vit C and feel really good.

I cant decide if its a placebo, it is simply coinciding with a good patch caused by meds or they are actually doing something.

Dont worry im not gonna go all new age and stop the real medicine.

Although whale music is appealing to me!

I'm a hippie (as I pull out the flower and slip my clothes on so Joan doesn't see me- what's this a piece of bark) and not just because my hair is hanging below my shoulders.
I've done the Aloe Vera and now Janis is pushing the Mona-vie including the EMV drink. Green tea is always available in our house. Plus Omega capsules.

Hippies unit and make a better world, just don't hog the bathrooms.

Hmmm...
I don't dance wildly anymore without a cork in place.
Don't smoke anything anymore.
My drugs are all prescription.
Still using green tea, earth shoes, funky jewelry, organic food, yoga.
Does that make me a Hippie wanna-be? or a Hippie has-been?

Joni, lol that's funny, cause that's me too.

Maybe we're just older hippies that can't go back.
