    People sure have a long way to go before the individual Joe realize one have to quit cooking food, poisoning food, overeating food, industrialize food production, poisoning ones skin, lungs and stomach through poisons such as chemicals, medical poisons, smoking, work chemicals…. the list is long. Most people are not even taught anything relible or of common sense these days, people are both scared crows and lazy fools. Most people today are simply put stupidly retarded when it comes to health, no wonder society is overfilled with disease and sickness of all sort. People have been lead into a rabbit hole of black and white thinking containing carelessness. People believe in dogms, rules and ideas and do so little out of sheer smart capacity. People are artificial eaters, eating brands, colors, emotions and characters. People build no character and contain absolutely no soul. The typical Joe is overfilled with gauging addictions steering hands and feets, people have a root cause to inner belief of our own pedestal of awareness, we are aware of our own outspoken excellence, we believe in stupidity, people make use of a lot of fix ideas and established words of mouth containing nonsense, we believe in mass, in numbers and in eye-candy, facts leads us, into lack of common sense and breaking points in life styles, we mirror ourselves in others, mirror images distort into crude causal points, most people do not want to realize the medical doctors or anyone else for that matter knows nothing more of health than the person themselves. People rely on auctority to such a degree that people are perfectly willing to become injured, seriously hurt or even killed in order to follow the tree bransches of auctoritarian health guideline, seriously people need to let go of shitty knowledge of all sort, people need to root to their own mind, start to think and let go of shit food for one, let go of retarded life styles, instead people need to start using ones intellect and common sense in order to grab hold of what health actually means. Health is simply put simple, people need to quit laching on to all the BS out there, instead think, feel and understand life, the creation and realize that health is as complicated as the surrounding world you consume. Stop being stupid. Begin by eating real, fresh and healthy food that wants you good, do you have a like and feel for it. Take care of your body and mind. Listen to your being. If more people feed themselves with less garbage health professionals could perhaps become what the medical community is no where near to be found, today health care is all like the auto industry: cheap, repetitive, superficial, emotional, recurrent, psychopathically dependent, parasitic, dangerous, irrelevant, stupid and never ending, you are a consumer in a currency exchange and the idea is to make you into a recurrent feeding mechanic. Just saying.

    How can people afford organic???????Perhaps you should be a congressman! The congress thinks if you lost your job with the shut down you only need $1,200 for 5 months ….. Congress gave themselves $47,000 raise for life, and $1,200 to wage slaves for 5 months once!!!… Now average $900 to $1200 a month for social security checks!!! Congress gave themselves $47,000 raise for life, and $1,200 to wage slaves for 5 months once!!!… Now maybe in many months wage slaves may get another $1,200 for ????? So how can you live on $240 a month, $60 a week??? But a congressman struggles to live on $18,500 a month/ $4,269.24 a week before tips!!! "FOR LIFE", But remember grandma is bankrupting the USA with her little Social Security check $300 to $700 a month…..

    I absolutely love what Zen said the one that’s wearing the burgundy Blazer she spoke truth when she said that the parents sometimes say that their kids don’t eat certain stuff but you have control over that and what you choose to buy and put in your house that is so true I used to tell people that all the time as a RBT at my clinic when my clients would say that their children only eat certain things and not veggies and fruits I would always try to explain to them that you have control over what your child put in their mouths and I would try to encourage the parents to add fruits and vegetables in their lunch boxes when they would bring them to the clinic its definitely a major problem in America

  15. G Man on August 19, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    THEY ALL need to hit the gym and the weights, thats whats missing. I’ve just learned that life lesson looking at them all. You cant just eat good, you have to train your body with resistance exercise. I mean, just look at their bodies, I rest my case ya fat ass honour

    so Lectins, natural pesticides, antinutrients, oxolates etc does not bother any of you? Plants are toxic for humans, organic or not.

    I love this. Very very good information. I never grew up much meat and i finally decided to eating no meat but go back to nature and drink lots of water and eat fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. Doctors are surprised regularly when they realize that I have no medical issues. I am on no meds and have never had a surgery. God is good. Thanks be to God.

    the label organic is a lie, its just a gimmick

  30. carol randazzo on August 19, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    Nice to see the general perspective is eat unprocessed and chemical free food thus eat better. Many years ago the saying was "You are what you eat." Finally this is beginning to become a reality. Game changers….they are all very well informed and speak of a promise of healing by doing what we all love and need….eating.

  31. Phillip Erskine on August 19, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    He needs to practice what he preaches darn what a double chin

  32. Eye on art on August 19, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    You really want to lose weight and keep it off. Stop eating out. Eat organic. Stop buying processed food. Stop drinking milk, yogart and butter. Buy grass fed and finished butter. Grass fed and finished beef. Buy organic veggies they are not sprayed with Monsanto Weed Killer. Organic fruit. But cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and extra virgin coconut oil. No other processed oils that clog arteries. Buy einkorn flour no processed flour. All my craving stopped no more depression no more breakouts. No more hard bowel movements. I never felt better in my life. I was not trying to lose weight but slowly started losing excess body fat as a by product of eating right now i do not miss eating out at all. And the food has so much flavor. Hamburger tasts like hamburger. Veg have flavor. Fruit is sweet. Stop buying food that is made to kill you off early. Diets do not work. This is a life style that works. No tying of stomach. Walnuts, brown basmanti rice, avocados, do not buy any packaged organic food that has added unorganic ingredients. Maple syrup, raw honey, stevia with nothing added to it.

  33. MISS3V3LYN on August 19, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    It is sad that ancient Indian and ancient Chinese way of treatment are the ONLY ways mentioned in healing. What about the African way, which precedes all these other ancient ways? People don’t even talk about Hippocrates having learned all he knew from Africans, the ancient Egyptians, not the present Egyptians who we all know are NOT the descendents of the ancient Africans who occupied that area and influenced the whole of Africa, and the world, with their unprecedented knowledge. Nobody talks about that anymore. Sad.

  34. Seven Ellen on August 19, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Why is there a bottle of oil right there?! Seconds in, and the image is already confused. Fats should only be consumed in foods when they’re whole states, like nuts and seeds (I’d say avocados from a health perspective, but not from a green one. They have to travel too far to reach too many customers, so they’re best left alone). Loving all the veggies though.

  35. Deez Grid on August 19, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Hypocratis learned from the Africans not the chineese

  36. Len Hanley on August 19, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    Big Pharmaceuticals fears natural medicine. Look up what oil of oregano can do.

  37. thinkin outloud on August 19, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Oh boy, big fat women telling us how to eat.

  38. Daisy Hall on August 19, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Very good quote

  39. Rose Baharally on August 19, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Very good insight and understanding to the hypothyroidism. Thanks for sharing

  40. knittingknut on August 19, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Interesting however many people with food issues are going towards pure carnivore and eliminating vegetables and fruits and nuts and grains with excellent results. Extremely simple and beneficial. Carnivore is the ultimate elimination diet. If you’re looking at this video because of food and digestion issues then consider the carnivore diet. A simple diet of meat and water is extremely nutritious and nutrient dense and very well tolerated by many people. Meat heals despite the common misconception that meat is inflammatory. After experiencing the healing of a pure carnivore diet, you can then re introduce other foods one by one. Many people don’t bother though because they find that the carnivore diet is all they need.

  41. Ace Glen Garcia on August 19, 2020 at 11:19 pm

    Organic fruits and vegetables doesn’t mean pesticide free.

  42. OBI UCHENNA FAIRWEATHER LAING on August 19, 2020 at 11:19 pm

    Hippocrates also learned from Imhotep

  43. Francis Mausley on August 19, 2020 at 11:19 pm

    Glad some Doctors still have deep respect Hippocrates. (“Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.”) "Medical science is only in its infancy, yet it has shown that our natural diet is that which grows out of the ground. The people will gradually develop up to the condition of this natural food." ~ Bahai Faith

    Endocrine disruptor’s come from many many, many sources. Food, whole plant food based is very very important. Look for those grown organic, and those that are nutrient dense from well managed soils–regenerative agriculture which is even beyond biodynamic.
