Don't Tell Me To Wear a Mask Unless You Want Me to Tell YOU to LOSE WEIGHT!
Over the past six months, I have been furious at the complete lack of health advice from our Public Health Officials, the so-called experts in the medical field, and the ones in charge of the COVID narrative at the Mainstream Media Headquarters. While people will repeat phrases like, "listen to the experts," I think they have no clue as to just how many experts there are in The Health and Healing Industry. And for every medical theory, there is always a contradictory one waiting to be discovered and then the old theory gets thrown out and a new one adopted. There is no one size fits all perfect approach to health and healing. The common denominator when it comes to human IMMUNOLOGY 101 is how the individual patient responds to treatment and no matter how a study clumps a group of people together they are limited in scope as they can't take into account the millions of human variables and unknown components of the gut and brain that we are just now getting a glimpse of. We are an intricate combination of trillions and trillions and trillions of particles, cells, nanoparticles, water, and some strange element that some call the soul that keeps us alive.
While we can appreciate the Doctors and Medical Health Professionals doing their best to keep people alive, to give anyone person or institution our blind faith and our unwavering trust is to ignore all of the evidence that says we should approach everything with an air of healthy skepticism and critical thinking. So, the next time someone insists that we listen to only one Doctor, or says, "LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS" it is perfectly acceptable to say, "Which ONE?" And, then, to offer a counter from another reputable expert in the same field. It's important to keep in mind that, Allopathic Medicine is the third leading cause of death. In fact, "According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer." - Feb 22, 2018 CNBC. Furthermore, studies make a case for getting a second opinion. This is straight out of Yale Medicine, a legit source, "In 2017, a study showed that 21% of patients who sought a second opinion at the Mayo Clinic left with a completely new diagnosis, and 66% were deemed partly correct, but refined or redefined by the second doctor." And, one doesn't have to look too far to see how many times the United States Surgeon General, Our State Officials, Our Public Health Officials, and the Mainstream Media have contradicted themselves, changed stances and updated recommendations and guidelines since March. It's like watching a Ping Pong Match with "First NO MASKS," Then, "Maybe Masks," And, finally "Wear a MASK or PAY a $1000 fine." I am equally skeptical as I am forgiving. I often have to remind myself of Alexander Pope's words, "To err is human; to forgive, divine." If I didn't feed myself that daily reminder I would surely have to bury myself in a sea of cynicism.
So, here I am.
"No, I am not a Doctor." I don't have to be a DOCTOR to understand the Immune System. I don't have to be a SCIENTIST to understand the science of health. And, now that the Schools, including Colleges, have all gone online, they have downgraded their prestigious academic institutions proving that apparently, we can get a Medical Degree on Google now. So, forgive me if I want to determine for myself how to ensure the physical health and safety of my children and forgive me if after studying Kinesiology, Psychology, and working in the Health and Healing Field as a Personal Trainer with advanced training in Management of Chronic Inflammatory Diseases if I have an opinion to share. For over 22 years I have dabbled in all things as it relates to the health, healing, and spiritual evolution of the human mind, body, and soul. My bookshelves do not have one Romance Novel on them for I find my entertainment in reading books on Gut Health and Neuroscience. That's my jam! So, what have I done to get so much backlash from people I once considered friends? Let me tell you. "I dared to actually talk about how Chronic Diseases make people susceptible to COVID and the fact that most Chronic Inflammatory Diseases are due to lifestyle choices."
