Does anyone have any opinions on reviving a diploma from here or a holistic nutritionist in general? I will have a kinesiology degree as well.

I want to avoid Antiretrovirals because the side effects are horrendous, even in 2013, and I'm pretty sure they give you GI disorders. I know at least 2 people who were diagnosed with IBS after ARV therapy. That doesn't mean the ARVs gave them... (more)

I wouldn't even describe myself as a cynical person, but at this point, I don't think it's possible to save the medical-pharmaceutical-agricultural food industry complex. I think it would be a waste of time, money and the health of people if we... (more)

As a nurse in a nursing home I can say for sure...NOPE. The system is corrupted by drug companies. Anytime a new drug comes out, it shows up first in nursing homes. Wonder why...hmmmmm.

What are your views on function medicine and naturopathy? If someone were sick would you send them to a functional doctor? What type of doctor might cause more harm for a diabetic?

I know little or nothing of Functional Medicine, but Naturopathy is 100% bunk. This link should get you started on accurate information sources: http://www.naturowatch.org/ There is a link to a paper about the man who founded Functional... (more)

I honestly don't remember the last time I visited a family physician or ingested an antibiotic because most of my common colds, stomach bugs, etc I've been able to work through on my own with time, rest, good food, and some holistic medicines. ... (more)

Some bacteria problems can be healed through diet alone. For example numerous women will tell you that just drinking cranberry juice helps their uti's. I personally tend to give whatever I'm coming down with a week with my natural remedies and... (more)

I've always researched the shots my children get and try to limit their exposure to antibiotics for example--but now I find myself questioning flouride treatments at the Dentist, meds, suggested care and of course diet suggestions. Has anybody... (more)

After i started getting interested in nutrition, i have become ever more skeptical of the use of psychoactive drugs, and a lot of other drugs for that sake. I have family who works as scientists doing independent peer-reviewing of papers on new... (more)

This subject is a pandora's box if there ever was one, so be prepared to be surprised once you open it. As someone who was taking an antidepressant and an antipsychotic daily for about 4.5 years, I believe I have researched the effects of... (more)

Beyond that needed for emergency care would you perceive your healthy lifestyle enough? Would you consider a life without testing and intervention from the medical establishment? Being that many here are quite astute on how to read studies, why... (more)

They never have been for me. Tests are fun but I'll never be a regular visitor to the dentist or doctor unless there's something wrong I can't treat myself. I diagnose myself correctly 100% of the time before I visit. My health, I'm in charge, I... (more)

What about a program like what this school has to offer? Is less medicine focused and more healing focused. http://www.jfku.edu/Programs-and-Courses/College-of-Professional-Studies/Holistic-Health-Education/Programs/MA-Holistic-Health-Education.html (more)
