I had to laugh. I received the monthly flyer from PESI. It’s a continuing education company for those in the mental health field. I usually toss the brochures without paying attention.
Today, the words, ‘Food and Mood’ caught my attention. I have talked about food and mood long before it was a trending word. Same with ‘leaky gut.’ I have a two-hour training on Food & Behavior I’ve been giving for over ten years.
I dropped out of all the online mental health groups because they lambasted me every time I suggested diet to help their clients. They were not even interested in hearing what I had to say. I even offered a FREE training.
Now, PESI is offering an all-day training.
Maybe now I will be able to find a college open to looking at my proposal for the two-semester class I designed on the topic of Food & Behavior.
It made me think:
- I was ‘country’ when country wasn’t cool.
- I was preparing way before preparedness was a household word.
- I educated on food & behavior before it was trending.
- I educated on leaky gut before it was trending.
And they thought I was nuts.
Goethe said “In the sciences, people quickly come to regard as their own personal property that which they have learned and had passed on to them at the universities and academies. If someone else comes along with new ideas that contradict the Credo and in fact even threaten to overturn it, then all passions are raised against this threat and no method is left untried to suppress it. People resist it in every way possible: pretending not to have heard about it; speaking disparagingly of it, as if it were not even worth the effort of looking into the matter. And so a new truth can have a long wait before finally being accepted.”—
Sometimes I want to stop being a broken record.
Now, if only the truth regarding the GERM THEORY LIE would become trending…..
