All Sorts Of Wrong

PIG_OUT

This is the top portion of a sign that a local business was promoting an “ALL YOU CAN EAT” BBQ BUFFET to raise money for Parkinson’s Disease.

You might imagine what happened, when I saw this pull up on my news feed this week.

Yep. I flipped.

Now let me just say, I know in my heart these people are only wanting to HELP. Which I commend – however, it makes this all the more sad. They’re going about it – ALL WRONG.

Most fund-raisers that involve healthcare causes in general – are NOT beneficial because they’re lacking nutritional education as THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY to healing and they’re claim is often a search for a cure.

People often think they’re raising money for “cures” – which is purely assisting the drug companies in their attempt to create another medicine that they can turn around and sell BACK to you. Not to mention, do they REALLY want to cure these diseases that bring them so much money? If they did – they would have cued in to healing nutrition and natural supplements a long time ago.

But the fact is – they would make NO money.

So while I’m picking on this ad specifically, this is one of MANY I see regularly.

It’s NOT right.

Let me share the top two reasons why this specifically is all wrong:

1. All you can eat buffet. What is this promoting towards someone who is struggling with an auto immune disease?

2. BBQ sauce – one of the top offenders for gluten, and MSG – BOTH toxic for anyones diet, let alone Parkinson’s Disease

So… low and behold – I posted this in their comments:

“Are your products gluten and MSG free?”

No comment.

The reply later given, was an apology that they would be serving “sliders” instead and they no longer mentioned a buffet.

I’m not sure how THAT was better (?) But perhaps they are made without their sauce or something? I’m not sure.

I’m just hoping it made SOME ONE think – something about “Pig Out For Parkinson’s” was wrong.

Diet should ALWAYS be considered first and foremost as THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect in healing the body – {in ANY health/disease/injury from inflammation/mental/ hormonal/cancer/etc. issue going on}.

I used to struggle with a heart attitude of being right for the sake of being RIGHT. I was RIGHTEOUS in my right-ness.

*Gulp*

That is, until God convicted me that being RIGHT with Him, was more important than being “right”… just for the sake of “being right”.

Humbling.

So now I struggle…

Share what I KNOW is right? Or keep it in not to offend people?

The question came down to – would I want someone to tell ME the truth?

I care about people. A lot.

We are each created with a purpose, and designed with an eternal soul… so we SHOULD care about one another.

I know if people can avoid what I’m experiencing, if they head off their toxicity level before it creates some irreversible problems, or be knowledgable about their options regarding choices in healthcare and options in medicine – they too, can be healthy for Him.

So, know that it is through Him, that I share with you what I’ve learned, and what I struggle with. It’s not to brag, to promote myself or to gain anything really – it’s to simple share with you – so that you might be able to gain some health benefit with the information. If you choose to do nothing with it – that’s fine too – but my heart is lighter, knowing I at least shared what I know to be true.

Enjoy this clip from Chrisbeatscancer.com. He has an amazing blog and story of how he over came stage 3 colon cancer through diet, and detox – refusing chemotherapy. Truly inspirational and right on the mark. My favorite comment from him – is about the hospital foods following his surgery – because it’s SO true. It’s CRAZY that in a place you go “to be made well” – their emphasis on nutrition is non-existent. Sick.

“The LORD sustains them on their sickbed

and restores them from their bed of illness.”

Psalm 41:3
