How did you get into nutrition?

I have been asked this question a few times and my reply sounds a little something like this:

I was in school to become a doctor but started to realize that I wanted to help people more than most doctors do.  I wanted to take my time and get to know people.  I did not want to become a slave to the pharmaceutical companies (from my knowledge, many doctors get put though school with their aid).  As I was in school, I worked at a vitamin store where came across and helped many different people use alternative supplements and vitamins to help with their ailments.  Most of supplements actually worked better than the prescriptions with far less side effects, if any at all.  I decided that the last thing I wanted to do was to go to school to be able to prescribe those medications that I had been working so hard to get people off of.  Not to mention that its crazy expensive to go to med school.

The one on one counseling experience that is got at the vitamin store had a great deal to do with my choice to change my major and career choice.  I changed to nutrition because eating the right food is the best answer for good health.  I started to understand that vitamins were a gateway into educating people about changing their health through eating the right foods and supplements.  I found out and that the foods people eat are either making them worse or making them better.  Its sounds too simple to be true right?  Wrong…people make a decision for health or sickness every time they put something in their mouth or on their skin.

These finding have fueled me to help more and more people through my knowledge of supplements and foods to get people to feel their best.  Most people don’t even know what it feels like to not have any pain or inflammation inside the body.  This inflammation can show itself in many different ways such as allergies, feeling bloated, having irregular bowel movements, tiredness, lethargy, joint pain and so many more.
