I see this was started over a year ago, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.
I’m a 26 year old full time college student at the University of Colorado at Denver. I am double majoring in political science and psychology, because with all the things I want to student, I couldn’t pick just one. Even so, I can’t help feeling that I SHOULD be majoring in nutrition, because I find it very interesting and I share a personal struggle with finding the right information.
Nutrition should not be as confusing and difficult to understand as it is today. But, our focus on money (capitalism) in western society has taken away from the true focus of nutrition – health! I think most of the people in our country are in some kind of national social trance or hypnosis keeping them from reality. Those of us who are awake and struggling, are lost in the mess trying to sort everything out against those who are so carelessly profit driven.
The biggest challenge I can see is getting the correct information. There are so many sources of information, even among those who are serious and not profit driven, and many of them conflict with one another. My best resource has been Whole Foods Market, which I am fortunate enough to have here, but ever there, many people are confused and mixed up. The questions are complicated and there are so many different opinions out there. I am searching for a higher truth in the midst of our very superficial society.
I am not bitter or angry; quite the contrary. I am realistic and very happy to be awake. I love and embrace opportunities to help others waken from their trace, and seek with them the higher truth.
I have joined this community hoping to find truth in nutrition for health, and ultimately for life. I believe we are here to create ourselves in the highest thought of who we want to be and to know ourselves through experience. For some reason many of us seem to ignore poor nutritional experiences, and therefore fail to learn from them and make changes. And we wonder why our lives are being adversely affected.
I am excited to learn and share with you. I am very open minded, but subject information to facts a rationalism – we cannot afford not too in this complicated world of nutritional misinformation.
Thanks so much for having me,
