Nutritional Experiment -Outcome based learning
Why don't you start by
telling me what your reasons and hopes are for being here? This is where the experiment begins.
scientific nutritional experiment must always be accountable to the original motive
for seeking care, so the results of the experiment may tell plainly whether it
is possible to achieve the original intention.
Most people vastly underestimate the body's ability to successfully
achieve change and improvement, and part of the purpose of this nutritional approach
is to teach people it is safe to experiment.
when experiments are well run people become comfortable with trying new things
and applying previously unknown technologies.
This is good to learn so that when we arrive at serious challenges in
our lives we have learned to innovate and experiment, until we find what works
and improve our lives and the lives of our loved ones. Oftentimes the experiment in normal
physiology that is explored in this office becomes a possibility for others in
our lives because we have discovered answers that might work for them as
well. This is especially true when
someone discovers that nutritional interventions work for themselves and also
consider their children's health challenges or their parents or spouse.
learn as much from what works and from what doesn't work. For example, when we support the adrenal
glands regularly yet find no improvement with insomnia we discover that
mechanism is not in issue. The
scientific way is to then move on to another physiological mechanism and
experiment to see if that will affect the quality of sleep. A well documented experiment will teach a
great deal about exactly where the issue lies, and then this discovery will
exist for years as information about how a person's unique biochemistry works.
is important that the nutritional therapeutic modality be viewed as an
experiment, so that we remember that each person is a biochemical individual
that is uniquely complex. Most of the
nutritional principles and science we employ today have been derived from
empirical data collected over generations.
It is called ancestral knowledge, since in fact our ancestors were the
ones who collected the data and showed the patterns that have proven to be science.
a person smokes cigarettes over a period of time and develops cancer no one is
surprised by the outcome of that experiment, nor by the effect of
cocaine/drugs, decadent lifestyles, excessive stimulants, junkfood (Super-size
Me). These are experiments of what doesn't work at all, and in fact damages the
body. These activities cause stress and
premature aging. Likewise our effort to
improve nutrition is an experiment in the other direction, wherein perhaps the
body can be strengthened, we may achieve youthful aging, and stress can be
famous poem says it well, "Every
moment of loving is an act of living
every moment of hating is an act of dying
our moments add together, like the digits in a sum
tell us plainly whether life or death shall come"
Let the experiment we were born to
continue. Let us learn the way things
work best, and then let our lives contribute to the collective discovery and
wisdom of how to live powerfully on this planet. Nutrition works! Learn how. Teach others by telling them how
your experiment turned out!
