Physician Heal Thyself

Standard

Most physicians don’t have a clue about proper nutrition and diet, yet we go to them when we are ill and look to them for healthful advice. The reality is that most of them only know what their mothers have taught them at home or what they have been fed through popular media – which may in fact be totally erroneous! Aren’t they taught nutrition in medical school? No they’re not. They might get an hour or two…or none, but they are not there to learn about eating for health. There’s no money in that! Further, doctors are totally immersed in medicine, procedures, surgeries, etc. etc.  However, some doctors are awakening to the truth and making the connection between diet & health. I love EVERYTHING about the following video with Dr. Ted Crawford, a Tuscon AZ physician. If you read this, Dr. Crawford, Thank you for sharing this incredibly important message!
