I happened upon this short excerpt of Dr. Amy Myers (a functional medicine MD) speaking at a Wellness Summit about people’s skewed view of health, normalcy, and diet. She sums up society’s problems in a few short sentences.
I addressed this in my post about functional vs. traditional, and I am still having these conversations with people. For them, it is just so much easier to take a pill than to change your lifestyle and diet for the sake of your health.
PS A friend of mine with RA was aghast that occasionally I eat cauliflower for breakfast. I believe she’s currently on 3 different meds for her condition while I remain Big Pharma-free.
