245. Expert Interview: The State of Health in America Today, or the Lack Thereof
Too many Americans are putting their health at risk by following myths and misconceptions, says naturopath Rosanne Lindsay. She learned this truth when she faced hypothyroidism head on, turning her back on so-called experts.
Rosanne Lindsay, ND, is a naturopath, writer, health freedom activist, and author of the book, “The Nature of Healing: Heal the Body, Heal the Planet.” Rosanne came to healing through her own journey of reversing Profound Hypothyroidism naturally from which she discovered her gifts as a healer. Her mission is to guide others on their journey to heal themselves.
The State of Health in America Today, or the Lack Thereof
“The true state of health in America—if we go to the internet and do a Google search on the latest studies—is that we’re sicker than previous generations. We’re at the bottom of the list of industrialized nations in life expectancy, and we’re the Number One spender on health and medical care. Most of us know that we are sicker than previous generations, but we don’t seem to care about it too much, we’re basically in denial. We just plod along, see our doctors, get our prescriptions, and just live our disease. Shift your focus away from disease-based medicine and toward health.”
Why Is This Important?
“Our natural state is health. Energy flows where attention goes, so if we’re focusing our attention on disease and on disease-based medicine, how are we going to find health? The first thing I’d love for people to understand is the contradiction of treatment versus healing, and what we need to know to heal ourselves. Our bodies naturally want to come into balance, if they’re given the tools that they are looking for. We need to go beyond labels and symptoms and find the causes of our illness, our dis-ease.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
Take responsibility for your health, beginning with using the internet and good judgment to find accurate information, Rosanne advises. “Stop listening to the prevailing wisdom and the status quo information out there. We need to start thinking for ourselves and going directly to sources. Reliable studies are out there. Shift your focus away from disease-based medicine toward natural health and wellness.”
