Understanding the truth about the medical industry is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
It’s right up there with what your nutrition, supplements, and exercise. But you’re not going to learn this in school, and you’re definitely not going to learn about it in medical school.

Brilliant video Lauren – thank you. I’m totally with you. It’s time for the truth to come out about this.
Thank you for the kind words, and I agree — NOW is the time for people to understand this!
Thank you for your excellent synopsis of the history of medicine (healing). At least throughout the world there are still medicine women and shamans and healers around.
My German grandmother was a country doctor, homeopath and herbalist with whom I used to make house calls to her patients in the village and surrounding countryside when I was a young child. And I observed her ability to listen, give comfort when there were tears, hand out herbs and homeopathic medicine. sometimes do a massage but when all was said and done she finished with a hug and some humor and when we were ready to leave, the patient was smiling. Usually the next day there would be a pie at my grandmother’s door.
Although I was trained in the allopathic system, I switched to alternative medicine and then became a psychotherapist focusing on self-fulfilling prophecy since we are what we believe, think, say and “eat”. The biggest challenge in therapy is to have people become responsible for what they do, accepting responsibility for their lives is hard in a culture that promotes the victim mentality.
We, that is I and my peers, have been talking about what you are talking about for over 30 years and I know that many in the generations before us have also tried to address it. It is my wish that you and others like you can finally succeed and “turn this ship around”. Please include me in any program that you initiate to create balance in medicine and our acceptance of nature.
Happy Holidays to you and yours,
Hi Dr. Karla! Thank you for sharing your story, and what a wonderful gift to learn traditional healing from your grandmother. You might like my flower essences at Floral Song — I’d love to have you as a wholesaler if you’re interested in using them in your practice, and it’s great to be connected! https://floralsong.com
Dear Laura Geertsen,
I want to thank you for all your sound nutritional and herbal advice, thanks to your generosity and work you share through this page, many of my friends and family and myself have overcome things like candida,and are dealing with our food intolerance. Also I want to comenzaremos your bravery speaking out about the reality of the human suppression being experienced at the moment.
We all must follow our conscience and you have been so generous, I must say I agree with most of the connections you made about natural medicine, except when you mention the middle ages and thus the catholic church to blame for the loss of intuitive medicine and for the suppression of women. I’m afraid that is a great black legend, which is hard to beat with the present corruption being experienced by SOME individuals, not all , and I can’t help feeling that you and many will be missing out on great health traditions if just like ( ironically) herbal medicine has been shunned as quackery, to shun the great legacy of Christianity in terms of health,women’s rights and freedom.
To sum this up and not to turn this in to a religious debate I conclude by mentioning that while Christianity has been cataloged as a fear inducing institution, I would beg to differ,this is the image portrayed by the media and the experience of skin deep Christians.
If we take a deeper look we are warned of the disease caused by not listening to our conscience and going against love( which respects freedom,is truthful, is not vindictive, forgives etc), just as you a health practitioner might warn anyone about using big pharma, about the experimental vaccine we are being terrorized in to accepting.
I invite you to research on Saint Hildegard Von Bingen and the great legacy she has left to natural medicine and the bridge she makes between spiritual health and body/mind health.
I will end on a note, I am the daughter of an ex-shaman,grandaughter of a warlock, I am a Catholic convert, no one bullied or terrorized me in to believing or do I feel inferior as woman.
Also I would recomienda reading St.Therese of Avila another champion of the Middleton ages, doctor of the church.
I wrote this great love and gratitude.
Hi Nathalie! I so appreciate your kind and thoughtful comment. I do realize I painted the church with broad brushstrokes here. There are many aspects of Christianity which I value and love, and I understand that there are many complexities around Christian values vs. how some branches of Christianity were used to exert control and domination (which obviously out of alignment with true Christian values). And I have much admiration for the mystics and healers St Hildegard Von Bingen and St. Therese of Avila.
I have followed your path for many years now, (maybe 10 or more ) starting when you were blogging about your health and writing about food and your discoveries and then you went to nutrition school. I just want to say, BRAVO 👏🏼 for speaking out so bravely about topics that are literally getting smart, highly knowledgeable individuals censored or completely kicked off social media. What you talked about in the video about how our current model of medicine and pharmaceuticals started is totally accurate. I took a deep dive into that this summer. I’ve learned to read research papers ( harder still to find them) and dig into validating what I read or hear about from the world of naturopathic, Holistic, and Functional medicine. One thing I think would be helpful is to list the articles and research that led you to the topics you brought up so someone who is listening who may be skeptical could read for themselves and continue their own deep dive. Also mention the search engine , Duck Duck Go, because often Google will not allow you to find certain papers or stories. I mention this because we are in a time now where many people don’t know who to believe because much of what your average person is aware of comes from the news they watch everyday. Keep up your truthful good work, you are on the right path.
