I was told yesterday by my mother-in-law that I am radical in what I think. She keeps comparing me to the hippies of the 70s by the way I eat and by my views on certain subjects. For example, I don’t believe in putting medicines into our bodies to treat symptoms. I also believe the body is an amazing machine that can truly heal itself if given the correct nutrients. We were talking about the recent family in the news that was arrested for murder because they refused to give their child insulin after being diagnosed with diabetes and died because of it. This was a somewhat heated discussion. However, my problem was with her comment. I don’t think that I am radical, by any means. Although, I do agree that I do not think like the “average” person. The comment really sort of hurt my feelings.
I would like to hear others thoughts on this subject as far as being labeled something such as being radical?
