Someone recently said to me, you are writing this blog, but you’re not a doctor, are you? I told her that I am not a doctor nor a medical specialist.
I am a orthomolecular nutritionist.
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s medical schools taught a lot of different things. There were homeopathic schools, osteopathic schools, naturopathic schools, it was all available. There were different ways of thinking and learning.
In 1910 the Flexner Report was published. Abraham Flexner was hired to write this report supported by the Carnegie Group. The basis of the report was that it was too easy to start a medical school and that most medical schools were not teaching medicine.
Rockefeller and Carnegie began to donate millions of dollars to medical schools who were teaching drug intensive medical courses. After donating the money they appointed someone from their staff to the board of directors within these health colleges. Once that was done, the curriculum of universities or healing centres swung completely in the direction of pharmaceutical drugs. And that is the way it still is today.
By 1925 most herbalists were out of business, chiropractors were prosecuted for practicing quackery and all homeopathic medical schools were closed.
Therefore, todays MD’s know little about natural healing. The medical field is pointed in the direction of pharmaceutical drugs that can be patented and which produce great profits. Anything that comes from nature is excluded.
History has made the medical profession into what it is today. I think most physicians do an amazing job. We need them! But there is so much more information out there. Things your doctor isn’t able to tell you.
Our body is a very complex, self-healing organism. We still don’t know exactly how it works. But what we do know is that in order to grow, heal or defend itself it needs nutrients; more nutrients than we gain from simply the food we eat. We need supplements.
Based on scientific research, a nutritionist advises on matters of food and nutrition and their impacts on human health. In this blog, I would like to share my knowledge with you. I will tell you about the scientific outcomes in the use of megadoses of vitamins. I’ll also tell you my personal story including how, since changing our lifestyles, my family and I never suffer from running noses or flu any more.
