I Love Helping People, But This Is Ridiculous

As a nutritional counselor, some days I just wanna throw in the towel.

I just received an angry letter from someone I tried to help a few months ago.  “Your advice – and the advice of the entire ‘alternative medicine’ community – is bogus”, it said.

This man had stomach ulcers.  I put him on a Phase One Diet, along with intensive probiotics, a licorice extract called DGL, and digestive enzymes – or, I should say, I TRIED to put him on that plan.

But instead of changing anything, the man continued to eat poorly, and take only a few days worth of enzymes.  Guess what?  His “change nothing” attitude didn’t work, and he still has a hole burning through his stomach.

But instead of recognizing that he changed NOTHING, he blamed me - and the entire alternative medical community - for his failure!

I am way behind in answering e-mails.  Part of the reason is because I’ll answer e-mails for free, giving my best advice that I can legally give in a short paragraph; But what ends up happening is the invariable follow-up e-mail exchanges, telling me how the person isn’t going to change his/her diet, and won’t take the supplements I suggest, but asking for more and more advice about their “change nothing” plan – which usually includes expensive infommerical-type protocols they’re convinced will work.

I’m going to say this as nicely as I know how:

I know that carrots aren’t as tasty as chocolate.

I know that sitting is more fun that running.

I know that moving hurts and that sleeping feels good.

I know that cooking your own meals takes more time than going to the drive-thru.

I know that taking a handful of prescription pills somehow is easy to remember, but taking a handful of dietary supplements is nearly impossible to remember.

I know that doing nothing is easier than doing something.

I know that it would be cool if the expensive-but-easy strategies actually worked.

I have a son, and I know that he’ll hate some of the things he’s supposed to eat – same as with your children and grandchildren.

I know, I know, I know.

But here’s the deal:  You gotta do something.  You have to eat well.  You have to take good supplements.  And you have to exercise.

Fair warning:  The scope of my advice is limited to what you eat, what you supplement with, and how you exercise.  That’s all I’m legally able to talk about.  Plus, I’m morally bound to only give you advice that I feel has some chance of actually working.  I don’t sell supplements and I don’t know of anything that’ll allow you to eat whatever you want and lay around, and still get you to feeling better.

If you get my advice, and it includes diet, supplements, and exercise, you’ll have to actually implement those strategies before they’ll work.

Don’t be angry. 

Just put the cereal and the sugar and the toaster strudels and the Valentine’s chocolate (and the nasty e-mails) away, and go for a long walk.  Followed by a nice blueberry smoothie…. And maybe some chlorophyll and some extra magnesium…..
