Nurse Jill - the Nutritional Supplement Heretic

I have been talking to a Nurse, we’ll call her Jill, who is experiencing joint pain and Fibromyalgia type symptoms, overall poor health and just general fatigue. It seems to us like Fibromyalgia is a catch all diagnosis for symptoms otherwise unspecified to any other disease or condition. Some of the symptoms include tender points particularly in joints or connective tissue endings; deeper pain that can be radiating or manifest itself as a burning feeling; it could be just general body aches and stiffness usually more so in the mornings; and other common symptoms include greater pain in cold or damp climates.

Okay, back to the Nurse Jill, would expect medical professionals to be better equipped, or mentally prepared, to deal in alternate treatments. However when it comes to Nutritional Medicine or an understanding of how providing your body with the nutrients and optimizers it needs to have the best immune system possible,.....well, medical professionals are often the worst at accepting this.

Hence our inter-action with Jill the Nurse who cannot fathom the fact that what you eat and the nutrients gleaned from your diet can have a vital effect on degenerative disease and conditions like Fibromyalgia. Jill stated “Nutritional supplements, and you are just talking vitamins here, are really unnecessary and are just a waste of money.”

I try not to be in the business of telling people they are wrong,...I think the saying is "love them as they are", but I was leaning forward to respond with something like “…actually I meant Nutritional supplements as in nutrients that you should be getting from food, however it is almost impossible to eat well enough to provide your body with the all the nutrients in their required high doses to ward off oxidative stress and the effects on degenerating disease.”....but I didn’t respond,......some people you just have to respect in their own ignorance.

Someone once said: “Insanity is doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different result.” I would think that a reasonable approach would be to try something different,....something with a proven track record like the highest quality nutritional supplementation.

Anyway, we’ll now call people who don’t believe in Nutritional Supplementation, “Supplement Heretics”. Here’s what the dictionary say’s about Heretics:


[n. her-i-tik; adj. her-i-tik, huh-ret-ik]


1. a professed believer who maintains religious opinions contrary to those accepted by his or her church or rejects doctrines prescribed by that church.

2. Roman Catholic Church . a baptized Roman Catholic who willfully and persistently rejects any article of faith.

3. anyone who does not conform to an established attitude, doctrine, or principle.

Hence a “Supplement Heretic” is someone who does not conform to massive amount of published accounts on how lack of nutrients increase the speed and severity of degenerative disease.
