Too Long To Be a Facebook Post
I started this off as just a quick Facebook post to upload to our sister page NO MAM. It quickly grew into something that most people (myself included) would find too long to take the time to read on Facebook though, so I’m uploading here to share as a blog post. Because this was destined to be a Facebook post, it may be a bit opinionated and will lack sources and citations. What it does contain though is a proper rant about MAM and her hypocrisy, delusion, and idiocy. Now that I type that out I realize I should have expected the piece to run rather long since let’s face it….we could find examples of her hypocrisy, delusion, and idiocy to write about for hours. Possibly days. Here, her latest examples are seen in a post she made recently to her Facebook group, Modern Alternative Mamas!
“Sometimes people ask us, ‘Exactly how much of a vitamin/mineral/active ingredient does your product contain?’ We don’t know. And that’s on purpose. Exact amounts are a Western thinking. People aren’t standardized. Their needs vary day by day."
She literally says that they purposely don’t track or test dosage amounts on the active ingredient because everyone is different and they have different dosage needs that vary day to day. Everyone has different dosage needs, so they purposely don’t provide dosage amounts to assist people in meeting their daily needs…..and she thinks this is a selling point!
“What about the fact that everyone is different? And it’s not just about how old someone is or how much they weigh, it’s about their individual metabolism, body chemistry, current nutritional status, etc.. Western medicine simply cannot account for this."
Holy sh*t! Now, she's correct that dosage amounts do vary in terms of age, weight, metabolism, body chemistry, nutritional health and such. However, this creates an even bigger need to know how much of an active ingredient people will be taking when taking her stuff! She’s literally saying, “Your dosage amounts depend on so many factors in your life so I just decided to ignore providing dosage amounts because blah blah western medicine."
“Western medicine simply cannot account for this."
When exactly was the last time she had even seen a doctor? Has it been in the last 50 years? Every medical facility has or works with these establishments called LABS. These “labs" are there to test your vitamin/mineral levels, your health, metabolism, and chemistry. These results combined with information your doctor obtained from you, such as your age, gender, weight, and other health issues, is EXACTLY that! This is accounting for such factors to best decide what, if anything, is needed and how much of it is needed. What lab does MAM work with? What blood work does she order on her customers? Does she ask them any info about themselves?
It becomes obvious that it is MAM who simply cannot account for any relevant information that should be obtained to decide what and how much of a product is necessary. Of course, if she could do this, or did do this then she’d have to do actual work and find out how much each of her potions contain of what ingredients. That cuts into Facebook fighting and feediing the ego tho…..
“We choose to trust nature, rather than pretend to outsmart it."
Yeah, no one successfully outsmarted nature, or benefitted from outsmarting nature.
MRSA? Don’t try and outsmart it with antibiotics. Just trust nature, you know, the same nature that gave you the damn MRSA!
Diabetic and insulin dependent? Don’t try and outsmart nature with insulin shots! Just trust nature, you know, the same one that birthed you with a broken pancreas.
Throat closing due to an allergic reaction to something? Don’t try and outsmart nature with an epi pen! Just trust nature, you know the same nature that causes you to have a deadly reaction to exposure of something, AND the same nature that creates that something threatening your life!
Allergic reaction and don’t have an epi pen to refuse? Don’t try and outsmart nature by allowing medical professionals to stick a tube through your throat for a more direct pathway to the lungs! Just trust nature to let you die.
Nature doesn’t have an intelligence. It isn’t a battle of wits. It also isn’t good or evil, nor does it care about anything or anyone. So you can’t trust nature to do what’s right by you, or to do what’s wrong by you. It’s also not going to punish anyone for manipulating things found in nature to be used beneficially for humans. Nature is not self aware or conscience. How do you cook if you believe manipulaiton of things found in nature is somehow wrong or dangerous? That pasta didn’t grow off a tree and that bread didn’t sprout out of the ground. Why are you outsmarting nature instead of trusting nature to just grow your meals?
And lastly, how are you on the internet? Are you outsmarting nature by using electricity that’s routed to your home and readily available through every outlet? You don’t trust nature to just send it your way on it’s own, and to do this safely?
MAM graduated as a music education major in college. She spends much of her time Facebook fighting. She isn’t not educated, trained, or experienced in health related matters, medicine, or science. MAM should stick with what she knows. Music education, why majoring in music education won’t earn you much money, and trolling ettiquete on Facebook. Stop being a danger to society by giving advice to strangers that you are’t even slightly qualified to give.
