I need your help…
Those who know me well, know I’m out of the loop with “reality.” I don’t follow current trends, watch the news, listen to radio shows, nor am I active on social media. I stay in touch mostly through emails or one-on-one conversations unless I’m teaching live classes.
I read and listen to podcasts on health and business; I watch YouTube videos on Empowerment; I take online summits on farming and wellness. I pass along this information by writing you.
With health trends, I’ve been out of the loop since leaving NY 2 years ago. When I was in food service and had contact with others in the Wellness field, trends were a constant conversation.
Since moving to Maine, I’ve focused solely on research and teaching, leaving me out of the loop.
When past clients and friend’s question trends, they ask. One friend recently mentioned she saw an article that coffee causes cancer. I couldn’t stop laughing… coffee!?! Luckily, she’s smart enough to know it was a hoax. Not everyone else who read it was so lucky.
I despise fads. I research the beginnings of trends, whether they’re Fact or Fad.
It’s my father’s fault… he despised popular music and when underground music from Deep Purple or The Who became commercially successful, he stopped patronizing their music and said they’d sold out. He knew where band members came from and what instruments they played; he would “celebrate their entire collection.” (“Office Space” reference.)
Who knew what an impact that would have on my life? Happy Incarnation Day dad (December 29), your legacy lives on…
I’ve written about Facts not Fads™ for so long it’s become my tagline. I expose tidbits of unknown facts or misinformed fads throughout my book, Transformation 101. I cover the less-known, less-popular truth behind fads. Why?
Because you deserve the truth. You don’t deserve to pay hand-over-fist for trends, trading your money and health for the lies of the food industry, BigPharma, and oil companies (all of whom are in bed together).
Here are a few topics I’ve exposed:
- Animal Testing/Cruelty in the cosmetics realm
- Mental Health Stigmas
- Sustainability and Environmental Passion
- Essential Oil Safety
- Our SickCare System
- 5 Problems with Natural Products
- Are We Too PC?
- Basics about GMO and Organics
- Real Food Allergies
- The truth behind the Pandora Myth
- The dangers of labelling people
I also share downloads on food trends and medical system lies:
- Plant-Based living is more expensive
- Is Soy Bad?
- The Keto DIEt/Should Diabetics Avoid Carbs?
- Beauty for the Outside In
When I was in NY and the CBD trend exploded, I had concerns. As the craze now filters into Maine and mainstream media, I’m even more concerned. Trends lead to dishonesty and dangerous ingredients, just to increase profits for the market. A friend recently asked about this trend, so researching the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Sacred Plant now. I’ll share my findings once I finish a summit I’m enrolled in for THC/CBD and complete more research.
You’ll also see the truth behind the Impossible Burger, because my “coffee causes cancer” friend purchased it by mistake. Is it good for our planet and bodies?
But that’s not enough!
What health trend have you recently spotted? Is there a health question you’ve had for months or years? Is there a mental, physical, or spiritual practice you’d like information on? Comment below and ask!
Thank you for more than a decade of questions that have allowed me a chance to share the truth with you.
Namaste, my friend…
P.S. There was a report on NPR yesterday about a massive sugar beet crop failure. The summary included information about the U.S. importing sugar from around the world. I laughed and yelled at the same time (to anyone driving past me when I had my outburst; I swear I’m not crazy!). I guarantee these are GMO crops… the same GMO crops that we’re told will “save the planet.”
The truth? GMO crops consistently fail. You cannot create a superior product to Nature. She’s spent millions of years perfecting DNA. And then, more bad news: Farmers now have to pay their cooperatives for the beets they were unable to harvest. Yes, GMO crops cost the farmers… $343 per acre left in the ground, in fact. How does that help our food industry and the social welfare of our farmers?
If we’re importing these crops, how are WE helping the planet thrive? What about the greenhouse gases from importing sugar from all over the world?
“This is going to have a tail that’s going to last many years, for many people, trying to pull themselves out of this,” said Younggren. “It’s going to be some tough skidding, no doubt.” Seth Youngren is a farmer who will pay $170,000 for a failed crop which doesn’t include his growing costs. (I work for a greenhouse/nursery… I know how expensive the commercial growing process is.)
