WHY INTEGRITY IS A FORM OF NUTRITION (The Forgotten Aspect of Holistic Health)
This upcoming Sunday, I’ll be on Patrice Solomon’s Blog Talk Radio Program “Inner-Light Radio,” to talk about several powerful subjects…check out the questions he’s sent me so far:
1. Your line of work with the brain, psychology, neuro-science etc.
2. Depression in our current society
3. Food and nutrition, being of your word, and
4. ADDICTION: a big topic, as I believe that addiction isn’t just the substance, but the chemicals induced by the brain, whether positive or negative…”
So here’s a rough-draft response to number three…
————— On Food, Nutrition & Being of Your Word ————
It’s interesting you put these concepts together, because when we think about holistic health, the tendency is to focus on mental, physical and spiritual health only – that’s usually the three-point framework we come from.

With me for instance, one of my values is “radical honesty” – I believe in tackling issues head-on and having conversations that interrogate real problems, regardless of whether or not this’ll create tension or conflict with other people.
I’ve noticed that to the extent that I don’t follow this, I feel a little less of a human being… like I’ve lost energy and fell down to a lower plane, or like I shut myself off from my own power.
Like I said earlier, this website is called “DO the knowledge,” and part of that knowledge goes beyond the simple information you have and into the realm of your sense of purpose and personal values
Values (i.e. morals) are what give you definition, and definition is what gives you purpose, direction and power…to the extent that you deny yourself of these nutrients, you set yourself up for sickness, disease and deterioration of another form…
