Knowing who to trust, when it comes to your health, is critically important. Being confident that the companies, wellness consultants and medical professionals from whom you get your wellness advice are ethical, fair and well-informed is an essential component in making empowered decisions about your life.
Knowing who to trust isn’t always easy.
There are folks right now, formerly acknowledged by the Abundant Life Network and the Institute for Quantum Healing, Organic Living and Noetic Sciences as Certified Wellness Advocates, who are finding themselves in a very difficult, uncomfortable and ethically challenging position.
They’ve learned that the company with which they are associated — a company that misleads the consumers and its distribution network, by making a false claim that they formulate their own products, and only offer 100% certified organic products — may not actually offer products that are entirely safe, healthy or effective.
They’ve discovered their company lying in sales literature, and misrepresenting overpriced bee pollen, honey and propolis tablets as a “pro-biotic”.
They’ve struggled with their company’s claims that it’s safe to spray a household cleaning product, with an undisclosed amount of sodium chlorite in it, on wounds, and in the ears, eyes and mouths of their loved ones, after learning that doing so chemically releases chlorine dioxide — a poisonous compound — into the bloodstream.
They’ve scratched their heads, wondering why their company lies about all of the products being organic, when a poorly formulated, cheap and ineffective “pH drops” product’s second highest ingredient is not only non-organic, but not healthy for consumption at all. In fact, the safety data sheets on that CORROSIVE ingredient warn about how unsafe it is to expose yourself to that ingredient, as you can see on the excerpt here. (click image to enlarge)
They’ve discovered that the lies about how their alklalising “greens” product is more effective because of the ionic charge that makes it stick to the sides of the scoop and your finger (a cheap parlour trick that is produced by leaving the product in the dehydrator a little longer than necessary, so that static electricity builds up, which has zero impact on absorption or alleged increased benefits of the product itself, since that charge is lost, when it’s added to water).
And of course, they know their company has been lying to them about how much the company is struggling, since hundreds of former business owners have disassociated themselves with the company each week since last fall, over ethical, scientific and professional differences.
But those formerly certified wellness advocates are scared…
They’ve been intimidated and controlled by the company, which continues to lie, bully and psychologically manipulate them into staying, despite their ethical concerns and professional questions going unresolved.
They’re afraid to admit they were mislead and manipulated, and worry that they will lose their close-knit teams that they’ve truly worked so hard to build.
And they don’t want to lose the income they’ve slowly watched drop, month-after-month, as they realised their company’s compensation plan is one of the worst ever developed, despite claims to the contrary by the company’s owners.
So what do they do?
Well, I frankly cannot pretend to understand how or why someone would remain involved with a company they know in their hearts and minds to be unethical and dishonest. And I struggle with how I am supposed to respect such people as “leaders”, when they are taking advantage of others knowingly now.
Once you’ve learned the TRUTH about something, whether it’s discovering that a product is not being properly formulated, or that it’s a repackaged, private-labeled and obscenely overpriced version of something readily available worldwide for pennies on the dollar… or whether it’s coming to understand the science behind a product more completely, so that you understand that what you had been led to believe is not true or necessarily safe and healthy…
Once you know it, you can’t “unknow” the truth.
It’s just like the squirrelly-but-likeable character who’s represented as a member of the advisory council, and who actually lies to people, telling them he earns $10K per month, but who actually lives in a less-than-great trailer park, and earns so little that his wife has to work insane hours to keep a roof over their heads…
You might have bought the goods they were selling, because they’re effective and professional liars and con-artists… but once you learn the truth, that run-down trailer park doesn’t magically turn into a $300K riverfront condo, or a beautiful farm in the country… but once you know, if you continue to do business with that kind of person, the truth is, you’re an accomplice to his lies. Period.
Fortunately, you have a choice.
Ultimately, they have a choice too. They can say, “My personal values, guiding principles and ethics no longer allow me to associate with this company. I might miss certain products, and I will surely miss the association with some of my friends there, but I cannot endorse a company that knowing misleads and potentially harms the public health. ”
And you can choose to align yourself with qualified, dedicated and more ethical individuals yourself. If someone was willing to walk away from a significant income with a company, because of ethical and product safety issues, it’s very likely that person has the kind of integrity you’re looking for, and can be trusted to give you honest and effective product information and advice.
Knowing who to trust isn’t always easy… but it begins with listening to your intuition and applying some basic logical skills to test and evaluate the situation at hand.
That’s why people know that they can trust members of the Abundant Life Network’s “Organic Ninja” wellness consultants, including the person who shared this article with you.
They know that when they do business with a Wellness Advocate endorsed by Dr. Salvato and Dr. Brown-Cannon, they not only have the credibility of that endorsement, but similarly have access to the leadership, medical advisors, and of course, the benefit of knowing that they can rely on the Green Organics company, for safe, honest and professional advice, information and product recommendations, on-going education and wellness advocacy programs.
And those formerly certified wellness advocates are learning that they can once again be certified and affiliated with a respected leader in the field, by becoming part of our global organic wellness movement. And they can leave behind the corporate temper tantrums, the attitudes, the lies and innuendo used to attempt to distract from what’s really going on, and the other ethical issues that have been slowly eroding at their own credibility in the marketplace.
I’ve often noticed that, as my friend Steve Maraboli writes in his book, Life, the Truth, and Being Free, “The right thing to do and the hard thing to do are usually the same.”
It’s often not easy to make a decision to walk away from a toxic situation or company… especially when they do such a great job of pretending to be [sic] “toxic-free”, but when it’s time, it’s time.
[Editor’s Note: I’ve often wondered why educated people would use such a functionally illiterate term as “toxic-free”, until I realised that like much of the greenwashing and corporate lies about organic products, if they claimed to be “toxin-free”, they could possibly be held legally accountable for unhealthy, inorganic products (or ingredients that release toxins, such as chlorine dioxide)… but if they use a trademarked, grammatically senseless term, like “toxic-free” they can apply that label to a turd, and get away with it. And apparently, they do just that!]
