- San Diego, Ca
- I am just a regular guy who is learning the importance of happiness through diet and exercise. I am in school for sociology and psychology, I do not have a formal degree in nutrition or fitness. I do all research on my own time through books, internet, friends, documentaries, and school. I believe in basics, and I want to clear through the smoke surrounding a lot of nutrition and fitness claims pushed to the public, and find the one's they try to hide.I also like to discuss other topics related to happiness.

A Pill for Every Ill
The medical community is run by tyrants. You have substantial evidence of simple vitamins and minerals curing diseases that no medicine can, or without the harmful side effects that come along with medication. There are medical cases as far back as the 1950's of doctors prescribing extremely large doses of Vitamin C to cure diseases, but the files have been sealed and are not filed in the public medical libraries. Rumors get spread to deter the use of these cheap alternatives, such as 'Vitamin C causes kidney stones'. There is not a single shred of scientific evidence to prove this by the way. Another example is Zinc, zinc has been found to help cure and/or prevent all types of diseases when given in large doses. Bill W. , the founder of AA, found extremely good results with the use of niacin many years ago in dealing with depression. But doctors made statements that too much zinc or too much vitamin C are bad, but they fail to provide evidence to prove this. They instead prescribe a fancy pill to get rid of your ailments. Well, did you know that new drugs are tested on only a few hundred and sometimes maybe a few thousand patients, and then distributed to millions? Also, in order to be approved by the FDA they need only show that they worked better than an alternative in two different trials. The scientists can hold 600 trials where they use their new drug with an existing drug or method, and if the data leans in their favor just 2 times of the 600 trials, it can get approved. There is way too much money to be made in prescription drugs, so like many other areas, the truth will always be buried by greed. They fail to mention the vitamin c trials, or the Niacin trials that were able to get a 100% reclusive, depressed woman who sat staring at the wall all day every day, to sit and converse normally at the dinner table. The doctor of six years (that had gotten no results thus far with medication) told them it was dangerous and to stop, with no medical evidence. The family did this, and she went back to how she was before. These are real clinical trials, they are just not mentioned to you by your doctors. Nature and the human body is made to heal itself, but the toxins must be removed first through healthy diet and exercise. These vitamins and minerals exist in our foods for a reason. You don't always need Prozac if you are depressed, two handfuls of walnuts also contain the same amount of pyrazine as Prozac, and have been found to boost serotonin. Fitness has had many trials to show it's effects on depression. Instead of solving the root of our medical issues, the medical industry wants to simply cover the problem with drugs that are expensive and have severe side effects. Some of those with diabetes have completely eliminated it with proper diet and exercise alone, and no longer take medication. Heart disease and cancer (two of the most profitable disease for prescription drugs and also most expensive for the country) are almost 100% preventable. They are diseases that only exist because of the Western diet and the chemicals we incorporate into our crops. But telling everyone how to get rid of them wouldn't be profitable at all. You may think this sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, but all this information is out there, yet the medical industry and food industry do their best to keep it from you. When you do find out about it, the doctor will tell you why their medical care or their drugs are much better and safer than these natural human processes, without a shred of evidence. Cash is King, that is absolutely true. I used to take an anti-depressant drug for years, and never did it actually make me feel better or normal. I have not had any anxiety or depression orders for the last 3 years now. This is because I changed my outlook on life to a positive one, quit putting toxins like alcohol and crappy food into my body, and exercise regularly. I do not believe that all pills are useless, and I know some are necessary, but 90% of the prescribed medication today would not be needed if the public was educated and followed a healthy lifestyle. Prescription drugs are a market, and the medical industry treats it just as such.
