I have been accused of being opinionated, or “unduly adhering to my own opinion or to preconceived notions.” (Webster’s Dictionary) Opening the dictionary is a dangerous undertaking for me, I always get caught in seeing more than I started looking for. For example, I find that an opinion is “a view, judgment, or appraisal formed in the mind about a particular matter,” or “belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge.”
So, are the things expressed in these pages positive knowledge, i.e. facts, or are they opinions? Is it opinion or is it fact that we face a critical shortage of nutrients in our food supply? Is it a preconceived notion that our bodies need to receive nutrition from a natural substance called food? And that the greater concentration of easily accessible, naturally occurring nutrients in our food the better? Is it opinion or fact that we need to pay attention to the flora in our intestinal tract? It is fact that my health has improved by acting upon certain “opinions” I have written about in these pages.
One could argue that my outcome is merely the result of the placebo affect. But I have had many opinions which utterly failed to raise my level of health. Where was placebo when I had at least one migraine headache per week? Where were the affects of belief when the least physical effort meant I had to lie down to recuperate? Why is it that my body heals more quickly from trauma or injury at 62 years old than it did when I was 45? Why am I more flexible now, than when I was “young?”
If these are the manifestations of my opinions, I think I’ll keep them and not opt for those facts that tell me what I have done is impossible and extraordinary. It is my “opinion” that the human body is a wonderfully designed organism, capable of repairing and maintaining itself if given the proper balance of naturally occurring nutrients. I have based my actions on these “opinions” and have seen these “opinions” work not only for myself, but for many different people.
Funny thing about these “opinions,” you don’t have to believe it will work for you in order to experience the benefits. Cats, dogs, and horses don’t experience placebo effect that I know of. The only prerequisite is that you consume the various AFA algae products same as I do, and you take the necessary steps to clean up your diet and lifestyle.
If you are an absolute believer that what I have written on these pages is all bosh, you are a prime candidate to give this a try and prove me wrong! No positive interference of opinion to cloud the issue. Here is the gauntlet thrown down and the challenge issued. Are you interested in taking it?
