As a holistic nutritionist, I soon learned that…a decent % of the individuals were misled on the following. There’s no specific order here, but I’ll delineate for the purpose of this article – that, MDs are trained in the following areas:
1. Food & nutrition
3. and fitness.
Because it’s that simple, right? No. A honest MD would probably disclose that, their coursework covered little to nothing on 1, 2, and 3.
Reality: I encountered MDs with very little to no training on 1, 2, and 3.
Even so, some of them misadvised patients or the public through (fearmongering when supplements & herbs are concerned) and/or providing inaccurate dietary advice. Some doctors are clever enough to hide behind FAKE science/literature, too.
- A decent % (knowingly or not) misrepresent information.
- So, it is important to note, when I confronted the issue – some of them stated ever-so-arrogantly: “I went to med-school. I am a wellness expert.”
Again, people assume…if advice comes from a glorified (white) MD...it must be correct?!
All of them must be a wellness expert....right?!
Reality: That assumption is costing us in ways we don’t even realize.
What does that mean to the average person?
I define some MDs as a: self-appointed wellness expert (licensed drug dealer).
