Many of you know that I spent 8 years in the corporate world prior to becoming a chiropractor. It was the 8-5 job with suits, dresses, high heels, schmoozing and lots of traveling. It was in the sporting goods industry and glamorous, but I was unhappy. I was always health conscious and wondered what else I could do. I ate healthy, I studied supplements, and I exercised a lot. Healthy living was and still is who I am and what I am about.
So, when Covid happened, since health was ALWAYS the message I gave to people in my office, my message never changed. But my approach to health is different than the pharmaceutical or governments approach to health. I’m not about dealing with things after the fact, I’m more about prevention and living a healthy lifestyle. It seems however, that most people don’t care about prevention, instead prescribing (and taking) drugs or vaccines seems to be the easy way out.
What if, over the past 30-40 years, instead of spending their billions of dollars developing pharmaceutical products, what if the National Institute of Health researchers (and others) explored “the links between glyphosate in food and the explosion of gluten allergies, the link between pesticide residues and the epidemic of neurological diseases and cancers, the casual connections between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease, between mercury from coal plants and escalating autism rates, and the association of airborne particulates with the asthma epidemic? What if NIH financed research to explore the association between childhood vaccines and the explosion of juvenile diabetes, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis, and the links between aluminum vaccine adjuvants and the epidemics of food allergies and allergic rhinitis? What if they studied the impacts of sugar and soft drinks on obesity and diabetes, and the association between endocrine disruptors, processed foods, factory farms, and GMOs on the dramatic decline in public health? What would Americans look like if, for fifty years, we had a public health advocate running one of our top health agencies – instead of a Pharma shill? What would have happened if we’d spent that hundreds of billions dollars on REAL science (emphasis mine), instead of drug development? Dr. Fauci seems willing only to give us diagnoses and cures that benefit Big Pharma – instead of public health – “
I can’t take credit for that last paragraph, as it came straight out of a book I am reading (and listening to), hence the quotations around it. But it is exactly how I feel and was so well written. What if we had spent all that money exploring all these associations instead of creating drugs for everything? What if we had spent billions on promoting proper nutrition and exercise? What if we had spent billions on organic foods? In my opinion we’d have a healthier society, but people wouldn’t be a rich as Big Pharma is a huge money maker for so many.
That quote above came directly from the book “The Real Anthony Fauci” which I purchased both a hard copy and on Audible (side note, there are more than 9,450 5-star ratings for the book, which says a lot). While much of it I have already heard over the years, by the time I was through the Introduction I was already ticked off. And then there were 12 more chapters to read (or listen to)! I highly recommend everyone get this book or buy it on Audible, it will be very much worth listening to, even if it takes a month to get through.
And for those of you who are still reading, 7 years into my corporate world journey, I started going to a chiropractor because I was having headaches. After 3 weeks of care, my headaches went away and I was shocked. I loved what this chiropractor was teaching me, so much so that I decided to change careers. I spent the next year both working and taking classes at a community college to fulfill my pre-requisites for chiropractic school, and a year later, I moved to Atlanta to start at Life University. That was in 1996, and it’s been a great healthy journey since then.
Stay strong my friends, stay positive, and continue to fight for freedom.
