This graphic was posted on Facebook today and it really got my attention! Thank you Dr. Laura dot com!!
I'm not sure this is very clear when it's happening. And I don't think it would have gotten my attention except for a recent encounter I had about this very thing.
If this is relevant for you, I think the example I am going to share will help you see it.
Several years ago I spent a lot of time researching the heck out of supplements and vitamins. The result of this research ultimately determined what I would purchase and consume to try and get my health back. I ended up taking 48 different pills and capsules a day!!
I can't stress enough that I did not take this endeavor lightly.
I was desperate and committed to at least trying to heal some very broken systems in my body. Then I took it a step further and recommended many of the supplements I had decided to use to all of the students taking my Health and Wellness courses! Many of them were desperate to positively impact some of their health concerns as well. They were learning a lot about what to eat, how to make self care a priority, how to detox, and how to make small changes for big results. Everyone was seeing results from my suggestions so why wouldn't they trust my supplement recommendations?
When I was introduced to Touchstone Essentials about a year and a half ago, the education they provide about supplementing turned my world upside down. My initial reaction was not very pleasant or irenic. Honestly, I was angry. I wasn't sure who to be angry with, but I was angry. Should I be angry at Touchstone Essentials? Should I be angry with myself? What was the appropriate direction to point this anger?
Touchstone Essentials was simply the messenger. They were providing information about how supplements are really made. Information that is out there if you know where to look. I obviously did not. Somehow though, it felt like they were telling me that I was dumb! That I had made some huge mistakes in spite of my tireless researching. Believing them and buying their supplements required admitting that I had made a mistake.
I struggled with being angry at myself for a little while. This anger was because I felt like I really did drop the ball. As soon as I figured out that staying angry at myself would make things worse, not better, I allowed my anger to be properly placed. I was clearly angry at the lies that exist in this industry. The labeling laws for supplements and vitamins lacks integrity and transparency and we are the victims!
When I started sharing this truth, that changed my life, with others, I saw some similar responses. I had forgotten my initial reaction and the way people responded to me confused me. But I get it! Clinging to something we have worked hard to know is very hard to let go of.
If I had decided to "cling to a mistake just because I spent a lot of time making it", I would not have thrown all of those toxic supplements in the trash and discovered healing that can come from proper supplementing.
