Stop Being Confused About Health (sbcah) is a concerted effort in understanding the deepest truths about health, in a time where modern society, despite advancements in medicine and technology, is more confused than ever about health.
When cholesterol, a component of our cell membranes, requisite for the production of reproductive hormones, is attacked by the pharmaceutical industry, and when the FDA deems that alternatives to those drugs are illegal to research, the people see that they must begin to take health matters into their own hands.
When doctors only know how to write prescriptions and serve industry, we see that they don’t possess the health knowledge we seek. When even “naturopathic” doctors choose to prescribe selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), compromising on their values for the sake of business, we must turn elsewhere.
When only a pharmaceutical company like GlaxoSmithKline can formulate a fish-oil supplement (Lovaza) that can obtain approval for the treatment of a condition (hypertriglyeridemia), but an Amish farmer marketing supplements the same way is thrown in jail for seven years, you see the effects of corporate power firsthand.
When you are labeled as a pseudoscientist when you claim that your child was neurologically impaired for life after vaccination, you sense the brainwashing endemic to being a product of corporate funded education.
We are products of corporate America. We are advertised to constantly, by everyone. Thus, learning what to ignore and what to pay attention to is an art form. Learning how to read, interpret, and understand knowledge presented to us is part of this art as well.
Sbcah’s mission is to educate you on this art form, in order to help you discover the truth. Sbcah does not claim to understand the truth yet, but it’s mission is certainly to do so, by studying health from a variety of angles, treating modern science and voodoo with equal legitimacy until having reason to do otherwise.
In particular, honoring the wisdom and knowledge of indigenous people is an important part of sbcah’s mission. The capability of our minds, as humans, away from society and immersed in nature, cannot be understood by the modern city-dweller. The indigenous mind has a lot to teach us about health, medicine, and sustainability.
The age of the internet and social media has made considerable progress in elevating the consciousness of health-enthusiasts. It seems that more and more people are interested in taking care of themselves and can see through the deceptive advertisements from the medical industrial complex.
Numerous problems exist with health information on the internet however. For one, there are many perspectives, and secondly it’s somewhat jumbled. The clickbait sites often make it to the top of the google rankings, and deliver nothing more than superficial information. Next, much of the information simply isn’t very educational. It’s an easy read, and you won’t really learn anything from it. It will capture your attention for some time, generate some ad revenue, perhaps have you sign up for an email newsletter where you will receive various promotions, etc. This is all necessary, when health information is controlled by corporations, but it introduces a new layer of confusion…confusion that didn’t exist before modern times, when we lived in tribes or villages, obtained our food ourselves, and knew about the medicinal applications of plants in our territory.
In order to truly stop being confused, we must bridge this gap, by educating ourselves, while connecting to the source, nature. At least, this is sbcah’s perspective.
