Racial Injustices Affect Health and Healing: My Duty to Promote Anti-Racism
Updated: Aug 11
This isn't a political issue in my opinion. And it certainly isn't any more political than our government nutrition guidelines. #nutritionispolitical
Race is a factor in health.
Emotional health is not my specialty professionally; but if you have ever worked with me on nutritional therapy, we probably acknowledged how emotional health, trauma (including generational trauma), and stress can affect your physical health. It can manifest as autoimmune conditions, digestive issues, hormone imbalances, and inflammation to name a few.
Bottom line: I am a healer*. Injustice makes people sick. Therefore, I have a duty to promote anti-racism.
This is me holding myself accountable. I'm going to speak out against the racial injustices in my field and seek out curriculum to better serve Black and POC communities #bioindividuality
* I am not a doctor and do not claim to be a doctor.
