So, as promised I am writing this to catch you all up on my study progress and as it happens, 7 weeks in and I can honestly say that this is the best stuff I have ever learned and possibly something that I feel all humans should have more general knowledge about.
I have also since changed my direction from Naturopathy to Nutritional Medicine. The more I learn about the chemical reactions that occur in our bodies, the more respect I have for the importance of food and nutrition. It has become very clear to me that the saying “a way to person’s heart is through his/her stomach” may not necessarily be too far from the truth. What ever you put in that mouth of yours is a catalyst for an enormous succession of chemical reactions in that most amazing body of yours.
Just months ago, if someone had of told me that they could cure all that ails me with food and or specific supplementation I would have scriley nodded in disbelief, however as the weeks go by, I am positively more and more excited about the knowledge that I am ingesting, pardon the pun :-)
I will aim to post not only my opinions in coming months but (as my Critical Enquiry and Chemistry lecturer Mr MickyG will be very happy to read) also links (when possible) and references to published books, and peer reviewed research journals and articles. As we should all know too well by now, the internet is an amazing place to find information, HOWEVER, all information should be considered bullshit until proven otherwise or as Mr MickyG would say “Anecdotal until proven Valid”. Either way you say it, it still means the same, with references to published work YOU can then check the information yourself and feel confident with your new found knowledge.
I hope to not only share my own knowledge with you, but hopefully to inspire you to take charge of your own quest for knowledge in relation to taking care of your body and understanding what is really going on inside you. We all have this responsibility, and where our bodies are concerned ignorance is definitely NOT BLISS.
Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, in this present moment you have this ONE LIFE & this ONE CHANCE. Just to be alive is the most amazing gift and one that we all must never take for granted, for even before the moment of conception our existence has been one of the most fundamentally wondrous, bewildering and spectacular universal events and I for one want to keep on experiencing all that this life has to offer for as long as I can!
