The Youtube star of the “Genetically Modified Skeptic” channel asks
40 Questions For A Naturopaths and I bothered to answer them.
This young man is asking Naturopaths questions that are really meant for medical professionals, ie physicians or “doctors” – medical doctors. His bias comes through when he asks: “I know a few naturopaths personally, none of which hold beliefs and practices that hold up to basic scrutiny. These are basic questions many naturopaths need to confront.”
I did the best I could and answered all 40 of his questions, with a little tongue-in-cheek comments and movie clips along the way. As Alfred Hitchcock use to say: “I hope you enjoy the show.”
I have been a vegetarian 37 years. After 18 years I discovered Chlorella and Spirulina, which are 60% protein and the perfect source of protein for a vegetarian or vegan. I couldn’t believe I had never heard of them. Now they are an integral part of my diet. I have plenty of energy and my vitamin B12 is high, which you are not suppose to get from a vegan diet and certainly not from Chlorella and Spirulina.
I would recommend Magnesium L-Threonate, which has been show to increase synapses in the brain. And Mucuna, which has L-dopa, which is precursor to dopamine production. Mucuna won’t increase receptor density that I know of, but I believe the activity would help stimulate further production of receptors.
You most certain can die from consuming too much water too quickly. In fact, it’s quite dangerous to even more than 2 liters (quarts) per hour. This is why I recommend that you NEVER drink more than one liter of water per hour.
We need to consume 1 — 2 gallons of water each day. Proper hydration is the cornerstone to health. Most important thing we can do for our health is stay hydrated. Never drink more than one liter per hour. No more than two gallons per day.Fasting is the healthiest thing we can do for our health. It gives the body a chance to Cleanse, Rest and repair itself. People complain about drinking so much water. I would rather go to the bathroom 1000 times than to go the doctor’s once.
A difference in what exactly? I have been a vegetarian 37 years, and I didn’t become one so I could “make a difference”. I became a vegetarian because I don’t want to kill unless I have to. I became a vegan – no meat, fish, eggs or dairy – for health reasons. It’s much healthier to consume a plant-based diet. The video demonstrates exactly why we should not eat COOKED animal protein. Organic raw animal protein would not be a problem.
I don’t care about making a difference in the world. I care about taking care of myself and my health. A vegan does just that.
I’m a vegan and I’m not “preachy”. First, you can’t agitate and persuade people at the same time. I’m a Catholic and I’ve seen Christians on the street who want to “convert” me to the “true faith” because I haven’t checked all the right boxes on their “salvation clipboard”. As a Christian, I like what they are doing and agree with them. But they are agitating me so much I want to disagree with them even though I agree with them. Why? They are getting me upset by trying to tell me how to worship, how to think, etc. What’s next, how to hold my fork when I eat.
If you are trying to get someone to starting eat healthy, the last thing you want to tell them is that they are bad people for eating animals. Essentially you are attempting to shame them into doing something they may or may not want to hear. In the end, either you will explain why you should not kill and eat animals and they will listen and follow you or they won’t. Shaming them, or preaching to them, is not going to have much of an impact.
Me personally, I never preach. I could care less if someone want to eat dead animal carcass.
I would like a recommendation(s) or book recommendation on how to set up pre-filtration before the water ionizer. My home is a average sized ranch home and I would like to use my kitchen sink for the ionizer.
You can install a water filter housing under the counter – it requires a plumber:
I would recommend this filter as our best overall filter option, carbon, KDF, Particulate (sediment) all-in-one filter:
PP/GAC Triple Function Nano-Zinc Filter(Included)
The macromolecular technique of nano-zinc is a patented filter only available through Taiwan Filter Corporation, the inventor and manufacturer of the filter. Function
• Significantly reduces bacteria growth.
• Non cross-contamination between filter media.
• Avoid deteriorated filtration effect for the enclosure of the biofilms of the system.
• Combined with standard PP sediment or inhibit bacteria growth PP and GAC function together.
• Removes particulate and odors. High capacity particulate storage.
• High volume, low pressure capacity.
• Formed by wrapping PP-GAC without use of any binders and adhesives.
Nutridiot –Short Form of “Nutritional Idiot”
Noun – A person who is foolish or stupid regarding the subject of nutrition.A person who offers poor nutritional advice. A person(s) who mistakes junk for nutritional foods.
Note: First introduced in 2013 by Dr. Bob McCauley as a response to those who refused to recognize that certain algae are amongst the healthiest foods we can consume.
He calls algae pond scum, along with nearly every follower of Ann Wigmore including the folks at the Creative Health Institute and Hippocrates in Florida.
I happen to think that chlorella and spirulina are what most vegetarians and vegans should be using for their protein since they are 60% protein, and have the broadest array of nutrients of any whole foods.
Spirulina is an extremely pure food, 95% digestible, extremely high in the Vitamin B-complex, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids such as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is excellent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or bursitis. Spirulina is an excellent food to consume before a workout because of the explosive energy it provides to the body.
In conclusion, in short, spirulina is one of the two most powerful foods on earth and it should NOT be referred to as POND SCUM. That is, unless you want to be known as a Nutridiot.
