40 Questions For A Naturopaths: ANSWERED

By Dr. Bob McCauley

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.” :)

How Can I Eat A Good Amount Of Protein Everyday If I’m Vegetarian?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

How can I eat a good amount of protein everyday if I’m vegetarian?

My Response:

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.

Are There Any Natural Ways To Increase Dopamine Receptor Density?

By Bob McCauley

Quora question:

Are there any natural ways to increase Dopamine receptor density?

My response:

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.

Can You Die From Consuming Too Much Water?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Can you die from consuming too much water?

My response:

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 Picture 3366drink 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.

Why Should An Individual Adhere To Veganism/Vegetarianism When Their Abstinence Isn’t Likely To Make A Difference?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Why should an individual adhere to veganism/vegetarianism when their abstinence isn’t likely to make a difference?

My Response:

A difference in what exactly? I have been a vegetarian 37 years, fruit-saladand 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.

Why Are Vegans So Preachy?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:  Why are vegans so preachy?

My Response:

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 preacherworship, 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.

What Can Spirulina (Pond Scum) Do For Your Health?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

What can Spirulina (pond scum) do for your health?

My Response:

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.

The world is full of Nutridiots, the nutritionally challenged who run around misinforming us as to what foods are healthy and what foods are not. Dr. Robert O. Young, M.S., Shave and Grooming Made Simple., Ph.D. is right on some things, but a Nutridiot when it comes to the subject of algae.

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. :)
