How I got into writing about nutrition.
By Joan L. McDaniel June 8, 2012 revised February 9, 2013
I am a LPN Nurse, amateur historian and Blogger. About a year ago, I was very sick and hospitalized almost too weak to even walk. When released I restarted my research of many years ago, into the holistic, naturopathic approach to health care. I wanted to know how to improve my own Immune system naturally. I used this research and ate myself back to health.
My interest in holistic medicine began three years ago when N.Y. State suddenly passed a law, forcing nurses to get the H1N1 Flu vaccine or lose their job. The flu (H1N1) had falsely been considered a medical crises by the United Nations World Health Organization. I was and still am fiercely against vaccinations especially in my own body and turned to natural cures. I was part of the group of NY Nurses that stood up to NY State and we won a stay to the forced vaccine edict.
Is the Food you Eat Making You Sick?
After coming home from the hospital I was still very sick, barely able to walk, run down, exhausted and burned out from overwork. In my attempt to get well again, I did research, asking questions about health. How to get and stay well, and did the food I eat cause my illness?
Help Your Health and Stop the Big Propaganda Money Train
In line with this form of thought, I have found some very interesting truths and falsehoods about food and nutrition promoted by what I will call “conventional wisdom.” It seems the more I looked the more corruption and propaganda I found. If I am not mistaken it is almost like the industry wants us sick to keep coming back to improve their bottom line.
Let me quote Dr. Mercola, “As most of you know, the conventional medical system tends to equate “health” with the absence of symptoms of disease. The entire industry is built around treating symptoms with expensive patented drugs, many of which are profoundly toxic and dangerous. Pharmaceutical companies now rule the entire healthcare system, and they go to great lengths to protect their profits, even if it means sacrificing patients’ health in the long run.”
The big name companies that I grew up with all to have seemed have changed and added unhealthy items to their famous products. They did not seem to want to change to a less profitable more natural ingredient. This change has taken years to develop no matter what party is in control of our government. This industry includes; the over inflated Medical AMA, big pharmaceutical, and big food, and big food distribution. The ones being taken seem to be the general public and the small farmer. Modern medicine for an example can care less about nutrition and what you should eat.
I am writing to help John Q. Public learn from my research, express his dislikes and likes using the power of his purchasing dollar. Something our conventional manufacture and their bottom line can hear – Loud and Clear.
Together we can create a strong marketing force that demands better products, even if that someone is only one more person besides me.
