Ladies and gentleman,
I have been raving that I have surrounded myself with professionals who are A LOT smarter than I am, and this guest post holds true to that statement.
Over the last 8 months, I have had the opportunity to truly submerge myself into environments where positivity and personal growth is the only topic of discussion. Do you know how powerful that is? I think we often are blind to how toxic our daily environments can be, so my new direction for this website (soon to be) and business endeavors is to allocate as much of my time as possible to spending time with successful individuals. Content is sure to improve with this game plan in place.
What do I mean by “successful”…
- Successful with regard to money.
- Successful with regard to their profession (business, medicine, rehab, chiro, etc)
- Successful with regard to their thought process and outlook on life.
- Successful with regard to their relationships (business, life, etc)
One of these successful individuals I actually had the pleasure of sitting down to a deli lunch with this two weekends ago in Greensboro, NC. We talked about a wide variety of topics, and I got the opportunity to have a serious question and answer session which allowed me to get the doctor’s perspective.
In any given profession, who has more credibility than an M.D.?
Enter: Dr. DV…
Dr. DV is a unique individual, especially given his outlook on medicine and health. He is almost what I would call the “hybrid” doctor, meaning he has been able to conduct himself and move his practice forward based on timeless health principles, common sense, and integrative techniques all with little to no influence from any of the “corrupt” governing bodies (ahemmm… FDA).
Yes, the FDA is corrupt.
We often seek a doctor’s expert opinion with the thought that they are going to give us the best care possible, yet many of us walk out of the clinic with a written prescription for some medication that is a temporary solution to a permanent problem. To me, this is like kicking dirt underneath a rug. The dirt is still there, you just feel better because you can no longer see it.
As a doctor of internal/integrative medicine, it was obvious within the initial 10 minutes of discussion that Dr. DV is a profession who I definitely want to keep in my inner circle. We see eye to eye on just about everything, except for the fact that he is waaaaayyyy smarter than I am.
For me personally, it provided a level of credibility to what I have been preaching (yes I know that I preach) for years. It echoed my thought process with regard to health.
I have been looking for an individual with his credentials to get on board and bring some information and value to my readers and…
… poof. He’s arrived, and I am thankful that he did.
I asked Dr. DV to start off with a simple explanation of how nutritional supplements (nutraceuticals) can have such an incredible impact on a person’s health. Gone are the days of prescriptions. We have a new proactive defense against disease and controlling ailments that doesn’t creating further complications. I am a HUGE advocate of supplements for filling nutritional gaps. The quality of our food continues to get worse and worse, and even those who do eat healthfully struggle to absorb the nutrients from food. Malnutrition is as prevalent as it has ever been.
People don’t even know that they are operating on a sub-par level.
We have a solution that isn’t regulated in a corruptly by the government. The pharma industry is corrupt. Just google “corrupt” and “pharmaceuticals” and you are sure to find an endless amount of articles regarding how horrible this industry is, and why doctors continue to turn a blind eye to the problem. Why would you wait until you have an ailment to treat it? Why not be proactive and give yourself the best opportunity at living a life free of preventable ailments?
We have to stop sweeping the dirt under the rug. We need solutions.
So without further ado, here is Dr. DV weighing in on the topic (I asked him to start light for all of you)…
