Dr. Nancy Snyderman, is a highly respected physician who appears on NBC TV. She made a statement this morning that not only shocked me; I was offended.
Here's what she said, "Parents, you are wasting your money if you give your children supplements. It gives them nothing they cannot get from their food."
Oh, really? I guess Dr. Nancy did not get the memo the Feds sent out in 1936: They announced that the soils in this country were depleted. I know nothing about an updated memo letting us know that the soils are now full of nutrition. I have noticed that there are a great number of genetically modified foods, but that's another blog post for a different day.
Dr. Snyderman's medical training has led her to believe that supplementing a child's diet-or an adult's, for that matter-with elements the body needs to maintain or regain vibrant good health is a waste.
Frankly, I don't know whether that is just sad or if it is sinister. Dr. Snyderman is a good woman. She has a family and successful career; she is being her best self, I'm sure. It's just that the information she has and shares so willingly is UNTRUE. The system is set up so as to mislead, misinform and misuse people, in my humble opinion.
Here is the truth of the matter: The human body must have nutrition in adequate amounts from WHOLE FOODS and to supplement those whole foods with more of the same will get you healthier and keep you healthy as long as you also drink good water and plenty of it; as long as you get enough quality sleep and exercise AND if you keep your emotional, spiritual, and social life balanced. Moreover, if you have access to ORGANIC WHOLE FOODS, so much the better.
Another facet to well being is Energy Medicine. Never underestimate the power and efficacy of energy medicine to enhance lives even though you cannot see, touch, taste or smell it! The human body is designed by its Creator to heal itself from the top down, from the inside out, from the left side to the right side and from the present to the past. The wisdom of the body to be well has been seriously disregarded, particularly by Big Medicine and Big Pharma. But Mother Connie has known this for a very long time and I know in my heart of hearts that this is true.
Please use whole foods. Buy organic whole foods if you can. Drink your water. Take your vitamins and minerals-there are a LOT of good ones available; there is even healthy coffee! Move your body, get plenty of sleep and fun and please look into Energy Medicine and see how it can improve the lives of the people in your circle. Just click here for truthful information.
