Happy Friday Everyone!
There’s been a lot of deep consideration regarding the creation of an “official” group/community in the wake of what’s been going on in a particular Facebook group the last couple weeks. After weighing options and looking at all aspects of the situation, we have decided not to undertake creating and/or owning an “official” group.
There were a few factors that led to this decision, the first being that the general consensus seems to be that Facebook is the ideal forum for this. We do not agree, and will not use Facebook for an “official” group or community. While convenient and easy, Facebook has massive privacy issues and is owned by Facebook, advertisers are their clients (not you) and they have no real staff/support to speak of. So if something happens, you have nowhere to go for answers let alone recourse (this is what happened to us with YouTube!). They make their income harvesting personal information and using it to direct you to specific advertising. This harvesting of personal information takes place even within closed/private groups. And if any government agency were to ever take issue with something posted in a group, even a closed/private one, Facebook would have no compunctions whatsoever with closing the group and/or turning over all posts quickly and completely. And ultimately, the owner of a group is responsible for the content posted on a group.
Other forums were considered, but we are not willing to invest the money and manpower to create such a community on a more feasible platform if the general consensus is to stay on Facebook. Additionally, we are fully aware of the long-term effects of deciding to create and own an “official” community. Were we to discover down the road that this is something we are unable to maintain, there would be no stepping back for us. The past two weeks have shown precisely what happens when the addictive nature of Facebook is taken away, and the massive fallout that ensues.
On that note, Dr. Morse is aware of everything that was brought to us. The inmates running the asylum mentality pervading this is more than a little hurtful to us. The clinic staff loves and respects Dr. Morse every bit as much as you guys and NO ONE here would deliberately keep him in the dark about anything, let alone something like this. His stance has been based on viewing all the “evidence,” including things that were not shared on the Clinical Experience group. We have other information pertaining to this that will not be discussed or presented here or anywhere else beyond this post, because we feel it would accomplish nothing more than fueling the fire and perpetuating the negativity that has been rampant the past couple weeks. But know that there is more to this than what’s been posted in that group, and that is what Dr. Morse has used to evaluate the situation.
On that note it bears considering that no clinic staff member has ever been granted membership to the Clinical Experience group.
This week at the Health Club, we celebrated with heartfelt joy an email we received from a woman that stated she no longer had terminal leukemia. We also were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a very dear friend who has been working with us for several years. These two events have presented us with a very clear “in your face” reminder, from both ends of the spectrum, of why we do what we do.
It’s time to shift our focus back to that…all of us. It’s time to rise above the negativity, darkness and drama that Facebook seems to thrive on and return to what matters. More than ever people are waking up to the realities of this world, and are craving the ability to take their health into their own hands and regain vibrancy. They are seeking out the guidance that will help them do that, and my friends…you are it. Whether you are working as a certified detoxification specialist, just learning and sharing your knowledge, or even just working on regaining your own health and talking to friends about how you’re doing it…this world needs you.
It’s time to step out of this dark night of the past couple weeks, and return to what is really important. Shift the focus back to helping one less soul leave this world because they can no longer function in a body ravaged by the medical community. Shift the focus back to helping people send you emails of utter excitement proclaiming “I no longer have _____.” Step out of the darkness and back onto the road to Wellville.
In love, light and truth,
