A is for Attitude Adjustment


My theme is Low Carb High Fat. 
(#LCHF on Twitter)

But, that’s not all - it’s about a journey to better health. 
It is about two women. 
One at death’s door, the other not far behind.

As you follow this journey you will be surprised by what you read here. I hope it impacts you and causes you to question what mainstream medicine is doing to you, and those you love.

Here we go… buckle up.

A is for Attitude Adjustment

Over the month of April, for 26 days, I will take you on a journey highlighting what happens when you’re willing to think outside the box.

This particular box is mainstream medicine, and how it views Low Carb High Fat as a dietary option.

The two women featured in this journey are real people. One is my mother, the other is me. 

I will intertwine our stories with my research, of which I have done so much of since July 2015 that I fairly could call myself a doctor.

Given what I’ve had to deal with, with respect of medical professionals, I can safely say they are not voiced in the changes that are fast taking over how we think about modern diseases such as:

Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, atherosclerosis, asthma, cancer, chronic liver disease or cirrhosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, chronic renal failure, osteoporosis, stroke, depression and obesity.

And… there are so many more.

☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀

Let’s take a moment and look at my mom’s endocrinologist (her diabetes doc), Dr. Thompson, he’s supposedly a front runner in his field. 

Here’s a doctor that not once in all the times I have accompanied Mom to her appointments has he ever discussed the cause of her diabetes. He just writes out another prescription.

That’s right - never has Dr. Thompson discussed what actually causes diabetes.

Do you know what causes it? Well, like I said, buckle up... this ride is going to get bumpy, and scary.

Let’s look at the prevailing attitude facing patients that head into any mainstream doctor’s office, be that a specialist, or their family physician.

Ever notice how quick the prescription pad comes out and you’re heading to the nearest pharmacy to fill what amounts to a serious Big Pharma (that’s what we call those huge pharmaceutical companies) money grab.

Do you have confidence in the knowledge your doctor has regarding what he/she has sent you out the door with? 

What kind of homework is your doctor doing? 

What is your doctor reading?

I know from talking to Mom’s, and my GP, that reading is scarce, and certainly not current. I also know they are nervous to step outside the confines of what their medical association mandates. 

What’s your attitude about that prescription in your hand, the one telling you you need stronger medication to stave off your mounting list of modern diseases? 

Would it surprise you to know the real “cure” isn’t to be found in the medication you are taking, it is to be found by taking a serious hard look at what you are putting in your mouth. 

That’s right - food is at the root of most of our present day diseases. 

And I will prove it.

TOMORROW - THE RIDE REALLY BEGINS.

Question for this post - What’s your attitude when your doctor hands you a prescription? Do you take it without question?


Cheers, Jenny

    1. Hi Mason, thanks for dropping by Pearson Report.

      With what I've been through these last 2 years, with the local yokels (aka Drs) I will can safely state outside the box is where none of them even venture. They are so entrenched in 70 years of bad recommendations/teachings that we poor sods just go with the flow.

      What I will be sharing here will be quite a shock - stay tuned.

  3. Hi Jenny - I've had to pull out .. but I'm going to enjoy reading and learning from these posts ... I just don't do prescriptions if I can help it - and usually can ...

    Take care and this is great - Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary - well, I'm so sad to read you've pulled out. I hope everything is okay at your end.

      I'm so happy you'll be visiting and reading - my posts will be a journey worth riding along for. I hope you stop in now and then and take a peek.

      I'm pleased you don't do prescriptions - unless absolutely necessary… even then one needs to ask questions.

  4. I remember seeing a show years ago with people talking out our ACA in the US. They talked about how the government needed to start with the grocery shelves instead of the doctor's office. So true. And unfortunately some places it is hard to get really good quality food. That and if I could take the money I spend on health insurance and put it into food and supplements, my husband and I would be better off.

    1. Hey Ruth - thanks for the visit.

      Damn right they need to look at what's on the grocery shelves. More to the point government needs to stop supporting (with taxpayers dollars) the companies responsible for the obesity and diabetes epidemic now facing the USA. That would be the grain, sugar, potato and soy producers. They actually run the show. More on that coming…

      In 2009, 24 million Americans were diabetic - what this is doing to your healthcare cost is staggering. More on this too.

      Until B… sending smiles and hugs your way. xxoo

    1. Hi Lynn,

      Never hurts to be careful about man-made medicines… the side-effects can be almost as harmful as the ailment/disease.

      I'm glad you dropped by - visit again, the ride gets a little scary over the next few posts.

      Sending smiles and hugs your way. xxoo

      Do you know it is the number one food item, on a list of Top Ten Foods Americans Are Famous For.

  7. We're not a med-taking family. However, such things like high cholesterol runs in families not matter what your diet. I know lots of people who are numerous perscriptions though.

    1. Hi Susan, don't stress about the cholesterol, it makes up a very high percentage of what our body needs to be in optimal health. Sadly, due to the push over the last 70 years to see all fat as evil we were lead to believe cholesterol is bad. I'll be dealing with this issue in later posts.

      I'm glad you are not a med-taking family, hope you can keep it that way.

      Thanks for visiting - sending smiles and happy thoughts your way. :)

  8. Great post Mom! You know how I feeling about being prescribed more pills. Forget it. I'm like you! Food can either heal you or kill you.

  9. Pfffft to the meds and shit. Doctors are pretty stupid when it comes to change. They whine about having to take a few courses to keep their license. When I know a naturopath, many of those are scammers too, who does more training and learning in a year than most doctors do in 20. If I listened to the moron doctor I had I'd be dead. Screw them lol end rant.

    1. Hi Pat - I love a good rant… so you go for it! I totally agree with your take on things. My doc gives me this lame "well, we have to follow the guidelines set out by our medical association" bull. It really infuriates me.

      I've had more help for natural nutritionists, and the countless rogue doctors that are doing their own research finding that the last 70 years of "eat no fat" and "70% carbs" is what's literally killing us.

      Great having you drop by - enjoy the Challenge!

  10. I believe most issues can be resolved with a shift in diet and lifestyle. Get active and eat better.
    Be curious to see how this unfolds. I have to admit, my wife and I eat a high carb, low fat diet, and during our latest physicals, we were both told the numbers were all perfect - for someone half our age. For our age, it was incredible.

  11. Fascinating and terrifying! I have noticed lately with my dog's heart condition that the vet sometimes does far more research and spends more time than some doctors I have seen!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Andrea,
      Yes, it really is both. And I agree re Vets - my dog's Vet has been on top of my dog's health from the start. My dog is 16 this year and I must say she's in mint condition. I avoid all wheat products with her too. After all it's not a natural food choice for dogs.

      Thanks for stopping by - hope to see you back - lots of fascinating and terrifying stuff coming up. :) :) Sending smiles and hugs. xxoo

  12. I am going to really enjoy reading these posts. Doctors often just like to hand out mess and don't even bother to check what else the person is on or what procedures they had done. My friend's mother had a major operation where they had to take part of her bowel out plus her whole stomach has shifted and they had to reposition it. The doctor gave her mess recently that is hard on the stomach! She took a couple and after feeling horrible, stopped and actually told her doctor off. My doctor is very careful in giving out any medication, in fact, I think he is a bit too cautious but that's just me.

    1. Hi Birgit - well, that's a shocking story. I can't believe how many times I've heard similar ones where docs don't even know what they've handed out. Shocking, and disappointing too.

      As to your doc being on the careful side, I'd be thankful. So many of them have the prescription pad out before you even sit down to discuss what the problem is. My curiosity is how much do docs get paid to push a medication. I'm sure there's big money filling back pockets.

      Thanks for dropping by - always a treat when you add a comments.

  13. Given certain family circumstances I am along for the ride.
    I could use some health management advice myself

    1. Hey Bushman - thanks for grabbing a seat and joining this ride.

      I think what will be revealed here will impact you, and those you love in a profound way. This advice will also be epic for your sweet little one too.

      Change starts with each of us owning our health and well-being, leaving it in the care of medical practitioners is dangerous, particularly the ones still believing the diet/heart hypothesis of Ancel Keys - more on that to come.

      Suffice it to say, by the end of this bus ride - you'll be nauseated and wanting fresh air… which I will provide abundantly, I promise.

  14. Jenny, thanks for this. Just recently got the diabetes diagnosis (no meds yet). I am meeting weekly with a nutritionist to better manage my intake. She's good and wants to help me avoid taking meds. I'm pretty informed about food and nutrition, but I eat too much. Too much of the good stuff isn't good! I look forward to this series. Thanks for the support you are giving.
