I don't know where else to rant. I seriously just made a 20 minute video talking somewhat enraged to my camera about the ridiculousness we live in when it comes to even the 'alternative health' doctor being promoters of tons of supplements, high protein diets, antibiotics, etc... Infuriated, I realized "damn, can't use this".
So in effort to release some of the pent up frustration, I figured at least this community would understand.
I was in the grocery store (gettin some tomaters) and this guy was talking next to me to an attendant how there's "nothing I can do but take tons of pain killers". Doctors won't help him, he's living in pain with tons of illnesses, and he's next to me buying bread, packaged foods, and meat. WTF.
Seriously - we are a culture which has plenty of technology to not be so freaking dumb when it comes to taking care of ourselves. I understand the government has a lot in covering up the many alternative ways of healing and living (because dumb drones are easier to take care of)... but it's gotten to a point I think I've snapped!
This relates to my infuriating find earlier in a "wellness body" magazine. These types of magazines are the Go-to for people looking for alternative health - but what do they find? Supplements, 'natural weight loss products', advice to eat organic beef, and you can imagine everything else. It also had a special section all about how Carbohydrates make you fat. Heard of that before? Yeah - apparently any time you eat carbs, you produce insulin, thus you will store it as fat. Just like that.
It . Freaking. Pisses. Me. OFF.
Like many of you, I'm sure, the injustice one can we live in when it comes to overcoming ignorance in this country is sometimes more than I can comprehend. I drove by a McDonalds and was shocked people are still ordering Double Cheeseburgers! (I tend to stay outside of the mainstream - shocker).
Er. There's really no end to this rant. I'm just so upset and DONE with tip-toeing about my beliefs when it comes to optimal health and nutrition. Enough people have suffered, and I think it would help a lot of people if we were to own up not only to ourselves our beliefs, but share the truth (in a peaceful - non crazy person) way.
What would have happened if I talked to that gentlemen? Most likely disregarded me, but it was worth a shot. Anyone else really frustrated with this right now??
