A medical / dietetics / nutrition degree is actually an impediment to understanding best-practice health optimization.
Most practitioners unable to question what they have been taught or come to terms with the fact that most lifestyle advice guidelines are plain wrong.
When empirical reality collides with their beliefs (say a patient reversing diabetes with animal-foods keto) too many tell the patient to STOP doing whatever worked and reduce meat/increase grains and seed oils.
Medicine is broken. Corporate profit and pill prescription are prioritized over healing.
We desperately need a paradigm shift. This is how.
#RootCauseMedicine is an attempt to reverse the modern tsunami of chronic disease by addressing and correcting its fundamental dietary and lifestyle root causes.
It is built on the following set of theses...
1. Homo sapiens, like all other living organisms, has evolved homeostatic mechanisms that naturally and spontaneously trend toward health in the absence of medical intervention or injurious environmental insult.
What happened in the early 1970s to trigger the obesity and chronic disease epidemic?
A short thread
Change of US farm bills 👇
Rise of industrial plant agriculture (esp. corn) 👇
Marketing of nutrient poor plant foods👇
Introduction of processed additives (high fructose corn syrup) into the food chain 👇
A key facet of the argument against enforced population-based interventions (mandated vaccination, masks, lockdowns) for virus suppression is the degree to which severe disease susceptibility is influenced by individual lifestyle choices, independent of age
- Physical inactivity
- Vitamin D deficiency
- Metabolic syndrome/obesity
- Food addiction to refined oils/sugar/carbohydrates
- Avoidance of nutrient-dense animal foods
It is unethical to impose such a heavy burden of compliance to coercive and restrictive population-based interventions onto individuals whose deliberate lifestyle choices place them at low risk.
Translation: I am working with a bunch of un-elected shills of multinational Pharma & Ag companies to continue pushing the dietary dogma of past 50 yrs that advocates seed oil + grain-based harm while demonizing ancestrally appropriate animal fat and animal foods.
...and silence any dissenting views that are not supported by reams of nutritional epidemiological research funded by the entities who profit from the positive findings of these biased studies...
...I'll also turn a blind eye to the growing body of evidence showing effective, long term reversal of chronic metabolic conditions by patients following a dietary strategy which is the exact opposite of what I advocate...
The consequences of insufficient Vitamin K2 during gestation, infancy and childhood are visible for life
- under-developed mandible
- narrow mid face with pinched nostrils
- crowded, crooked teeth (needed orthodontic work)
Obvious corollary is that any vegetarian/vegan pregnancy/upbringing is more likely going to result in a child looking like the bottom example.
So few realize that dietary choices (as pregnant mother + family) affect the physical facial development of the children.
Not to pick on the vegans. Any diet rich in polyunsaturated vegetable oils and processed foods will reliably produce the same outcome of sub-optimal facial structure. There is an impending epidemic of poor children destined for a life of mouth breathing and orthodontic work...
"T deficiency is thought to be associated with a broad range of undesired effects including diminished well-being and quality of life, mood changes (depression, irritation, moodiness), loss of energy, cognitive disturbances, interference with optimal sexual function...
...declining muscle mass and strength and lowering of bone mass and bone density"
These effects are likely to be inconsistent and highly individual. Some may suffer all, some may suffer few, others may not be affected.
We are in the process of re-discovering the health blueprint for humanity. These are the most URGENT areas of investigation.
