Rock Your Health: How to deal with a dilemma

Recently I was faced with a decision to compromise my belief over yielding to conventional thinking that I now know is in question.  For example, we now know that cholesterol is no longer the cause of heart disease. Inflammation is.  But conventional thinkers may not have changed their thinking on this issue because new information takes time to catch up with everyone.

Because it is my job to educate on health issues and keep people informed with the latest scientific evidence, it is not always readily acceptable to the masses. So the challenge is – do you yield to the old paradigm or do you take the risk of telling the new truth and standing out on a limb?

I remember when I entered the field of wellness and when I tried to educate about it in the healthcare system one physician said to me “there is no such word as wellness.” But I of course forged ahead and now look where we are with wellness – front and center!

So how do you handle this? Please email me your comments to carol@carolebert.com.
