I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z April (2016) Challange.
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?
