I've been seeing a state licensed naturopathic practitioner for about 6 weeks. I love this holistic approach to health and healing. I've had blood test for nutritional deficiencies and allergies along with lab tests for parasites and candida overgrowth. I've had vitamin IV drips including mega doses of vitamin C. Ozone therapy is scheduled in the future.This is an attempt to stimulate my immune system to fight autoimmune disease. It's been wonderful.
What I don't understand is why this holistic doctor is trying to force me to eat meat. She insists that there is no way to get adequate protein without eating meat. She wants to "compromise" and have me eat fish. This is based on her own experiences where she said she would get dizzy and weak when she tried a vegan diet. I'm not having that problem regarding my diet. I've been getting weak and dizzy for years even when I was a meat eater. I've explained this more than once, but at each weekly appointment she continues to bring it up. I told her to stop discussing the idea of me adding dead animals to my diet because it will not happen and it feels harassing and stressful. I told her I would search for another healthcare practitioner if my choice isn't respected. Well, she apologized.
It's frustrating when other's do not respect another person's choice. I can't believe that I had to go through this.
