Well well well. The AMA (Australian Medical Association) has once again tweeted that I am putting people's lives at risk....WHY? Because I encourage the following which has shown numerous times to help improve peoples overall health including reversing type 2 diabetes and lowering some medications. Lets take a look at what they think is dangerous advice shall we....
We promote an organic diet of small to moderate amounts of well sourced seafood and or meat from land animals, an abundance of colourful vegetables and fruit, (lower carb preferably as the majority of your intake) and good quality dietary fat as opposed to the criminal low fat movement.
We also encourage breast milk as the number one food for babies.
We also talk about respecting the sun and not getting burnt and choosing a non toxic sunscreen and making sure to get adequate vitamin D exposure, as so many people are lacking this.
We encourage people to ditch the dairy as a marketed health food from the dairy association for 3 months and see how their bodies feel without it.
And finally, we encourage people to drink the most natural, clean water they can source without a known neurotoxin in it.
Shouldn't the role of the AMA be to help prevent illness and reduce medications through lifestyle changes?
Tony Bartone is the Vice President of AMA and has also added his well thought out tweet!
Is the AMA in the pockets of the pharmaceutical industries and are they in the business of helping people get healthy?
I have many friends that are doctors and they do amazing work, just like I have friends that are dietitians, however are their governing bodies representing them the best way by tweeting their personal opinions of a chef promoting the above information?
And if anyone has ever watched my videos or talks or read our books we also encourage people to work with healthy health professionals when changing their diets and encourage them to get the blood tests done so they can track their progress. This information we share is coming from some of the worlds leading doctors, scientists and researchers that are having massive success in helping their patients!
How much nutritional training does the AMA provide for their doctors? Remember "you don't need to be qualified to have common sense!"
Paul Dillon, the alcohol/drug expert in this article is a friend of mine and very sensible and experienced. He and the author are saying parental lack of backbone is creating great risk for kids. We need to do our job - set boundaries that kids can't set for themselves. Of course, boundaries without also having a warm and connected relationship don't work very well. The article doesn't mention that aspect. Generally parents who are close to their children also set boundaries well. We had a third of a million views on this article overnight on my two pages combined. Teen drinking is falling worldwide, but a subgroup are getting worse. So its about making sure your kids are not in that subgroup. And working with the mums and dads who share your values.

Australians have taken to social media to throw support behind independent Senator Jacqui Lambie after she made an emotional plea to Government to reconsider welfare cuts, speaking of her own struggles as a single mother on the disability support pension for seven years.
New South Wales detectives have made a major breakthrough in one of the state’s longest mysteries - the abduction and murder of toddler, Cheryl Grimmer, at Fairy Meadow Beach in Wollongong, 47 years ago.
Strike Force Wessel investigators travelled to Frankston in Melbourne and yesterday arrested a 63-year-old man over the three-year-old’s abduction in January, 1970.
The child was visiting the beach with her parents and three older brothers when she was kidnapped.
Detectives from the Wollongong Local Area Command, working with the State Crime Command’s Unsolved Homicide Team, re-examined the case late last year, focussing on witness accounts and the evidence gathered in and around the local surf club almost 50 years ago.
Around 1pm yesterday (Wednesday 22 March), Strike Force officers, acting on fresh information, took the suspect into custody, with the assistance of Victoria Police.
He faced Frankston Magistrates Court where police successfully sought his extradition to New South Wales.
The man is being taken to Wollongong Police Station and will be formally charged later today with Murder and Detain for Advantage (abduction).
He is expected to appear in Wollongong Local Court on Friday 24 March 2017.
