I just finished up my interview with Mike Adams and Kevin Gianni for The Great Health Debate online event. That had to be one of the best experiences I have had since I’ve been a involved in the alternative health and wellness world. Absolutely rocked!
When Kevin first contacted me about participating in the program, I declined emphatically. Hell no! There was no way I was ever going to be a part of an endless debate that always turns out to be a big waste of time. All I could think of was the enormous amount of vegan email I was going to get. However, when he explained that our call would be a joint call with Mike Adams about our non-dogmatic, open-minded approach to diet and health, I was all for it.
I admit that I was a bit star-struck by Mike. His website was very influential in my evolution from a Food Guide Pyramid campaigner to who I am now. I haven’t visited his site as often as I used to. I recall him being a pretty hardcore vegan in the past. And because of that, I prepared myself to engage in a disagreement or two.
It didn’t happen.
I had no idea how similar in thought Mike and I were. Listening to him speak was almost like listening to myself. On several occasions, I almost felt like I was repeating his answers. He spoke about Weston Price, the high animal fat diet of the healthy Inuit, listening to our body language, and best of all, avoiding dogma and dietary extremism. We also discussed how we go about deciding how to sift through so much conflicting science and information and find out what resonates best with us.
There was so much packed in that call! I wish it was live and you all could have been there. Be sure to GET REGISTERED for this FREE event and check out our call on Feb 12.
Who’s going to win the Great Health Debate? No one. No one ever really wins. The point is to provide the spark that impels you to become more mindful of what you consume, to help you realize that your body has all the wisdom it needs to decide what is best for you.
Arguing about food is a waste of the energy that food delivers. It’s unfortunate how food has become a religion for a lot of people. There are already enough divisions among us. Food shouldn’t be one of them.
Great way to end a rocky week! Definitely one for the scrapbook.
