I just received this newsletter from the Holistic Medical Centre in Auckland, New Zealand, that I go to. Reading this, I couldn’t help feeling angry at how your average doctor is not trained for and misses the basics in people’s health problems – simple nutrient deficiencies. Like Vitamin D, B12, magnesium. How come the average doctor misses this? Because their medical training is all about treating illness with drugs and surgery, and their nutritional training is almost non-existent. (In a particularly appalling example below, one man had seen 11 previous doctors, all missed his vitamin B12 and D deficiency.) Read this from final year medical student Anastasia in Australia “I am a final year medical student and I have a confession: I know precious little about health….” (And check out the rest of her blog – it’s great)
I also love the stories in this newsletter because it shows how replacing missing nutrients and changing diet can have such profound effects on people’s health. Many of us who work with clients – using nutrition in line with our genes and adding supplements if needed – see this. More stories here from the Health Centre.
Changing your diet, and correcting deficiencies changes lives profoundly, often eliminating health problems completely. Success stories
