We strongly support the role of able, licensed physicians. Unfortunately, many of them are not well informed nutritionally and do not know how to prescribe the makings of a sound lifestyle. On the other hand, many worthy doctors are informed and vow that 90 percent of our ailments would go away if we simply did what we know we should do.
Yet somehow we do not do what we know we should do. We pass off this advice, preferring immediate solutions over those which require a lifestyle change. We hope that “a good night’s rest” helped along by a sleeping pill and a couple of aspirin will take care of the situation–now!
Many otherwise honest doctors are certain that in order for their practices to survive they must give most people a “quick fix.” They know that we don’t want to face the consequences of our actions. We will do it for our cars and our pets, but not for our bodies.
Most of us have better sense to challenge the law of gravity because if we jump from a cliff, we know that the results will be immediate disaster. But since there is in most cases a delay in the natural laws of our bodies, it is easy for us to think, Never mind, it won’t happen to me.
