We have the Right to Choose

We Have the Right to Choose

Sent by JUDY CHO | September 18, 2021

This week on social media, I shared some reasons to do your own due diligence before getting the Covid-19 vaccine. And while many were supportive of my thoughts, some were upset that the sentiment was anti-vaccine.

To be clear, I never said people should or should not get the Covid-19 vaccination.

Are there injuries with the vaccination? Yes. Are there people that are being saved from dying from Covid-19, especially with severe comorbidities? Yes.

Getting the vaccine (if you haven’t already) is a very personal decision people need to make on their own and my post was to share that:

  1. Don’t just blindly adhere. There will always be some people that will have adverse effects to diets (vegan), medications, and vaccines. You have to do the research to see how ____ will affect you.
  2. We should have the ultimate choice with what we do with our bodies and our children’s bodies.
  3. This 5-min Forbes video clip stated my POV, oh so well.

When someone writes that my words are risking people’s lives, it’s the same narrative that vegans say to me when I share about meat. (you can see what I wrote in the social media share section).

I spent weeks doing research for this extensive covid + vaccine research article. I would hope that if you follow my content, you know that I’d never put information out there, haphazardly risking people’s lives.

My posts take a lot of time and effort. It’s not something I take lightly.

Here’s an expert roundtable that has some of the greatest experts in the field that share who should and who shouldn’t get the vaccine (in their expert opinion). I have a PDF of a written summary so if you want the summary instead, you can email me and I’ll send you a copy.


They say history repeats itself.
⏳And those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Given FDA’s past (and very recent) history:
⚠️they’ve been wrong with chemicals and drugs
⚠️they likely sided with Johnson & Johnson instead of the health of the people for decades (regarding J&J’s baby powder)
⚠️they may have a conflict of interest (Pfizer-FDA relationship)

📖And in @CarnivoreCure you can read about the battle for food dyes and GMO chemicals (glyphosate).

📌So no, I don’t fully trust the FDA to have my or my children’s best interest at heart.

👩‍👦‍👦This isn’t about me staying in my lane. Since the POTUS took a stand with what parents should do with their children, I’m taking a stand as a mother for her children (and frankly, for all children).

🔎And based on my research as a mother, we should all have the right to choose if we want to participate in this experimental medicine (only one recently FDA-approved.)

⚖️Good or bad, let the individual people and families decide. People should not be fear mongered and threatened to do things or get things taken away.

🌟We all want the best for ourselves and our loved ones. And we should have the right to be allowed to make the decision for what IS best, per individual, child, and family.

👣We all want this panemic to end. But this isn’t it.
Every abusive relationship starts by giving in a little.

NwJ PODCAST: Thoughts on Insulin Resistance, Ideal Diets, Hormones and Other Hot Topics

This is a very honest episode where I share my thoughts on insulin resistance, hormones, thyroid health, and the best diet for you.

After interviewing nearly 100 different experts, I share my thoughts on some of the most recent interviews — especially when the sentiment left can be confusing as they don’t have the same take-home message.

I would hope they wouldn’t. Otherwise, we are living in an echo chamber and that’s a dangerous place to be.

  • Key to optimal health
  • Insulin Resistance and PUFAs
  • Hormones, Thyroid, Hypervitaminosis and Iodine
  • Thoughts on Meat-Only Carnivore
  • Electrolytes and Minerals
  • Root Cause Healing Suggestions

You can listen to it on podcast, here.

Liver Health:
Ever since chatting with Leanne and working with clients on mold detoxification (there’s an uptick in mold illness because we’ve been in our homes much more), I decided to share about liver function and the importance of detoxification.

If you have Carnivore Cure, in chapter 16, I explain how the body detoxes through the Phase 1 and Phase 2 detox pathways.

I’ll be sharing more posts this week about it.

Food Toxin Database:
I’m deep in the weeds with the food toxin database and it will be a lot more comprehensive than I first imagined (I imagined a PDF printout). I hope it’s a tool that can be used by someone starting the Carnivore Cure elimination and reintroduction diet, as well as a health practitioner wanting to better fine-tune food lists for sensitive patients.

With this food toxin database, I’m hoping we can ultimately stop guessing our food sensitivities and finally eat the foods that are right for us.

If you noticed, I never shared a safe plant list on my social media because there really isn’t one list for everyone. I frankly hated making the top 10 safe plant list for Carnivore Cure, and the only way I came to a decision was by adding many disclaimers with each food item. Because the truth is, there is no safe food for every single person.

And this is exactly why I’m making this food toxin resource.

Covid and Obesity in Children:
This week the CDC published a report of 432,302 people aged 2–19 years. In this cohort, the body mass index (BMI) increased by double the amount compared to a prepandemic period.

“Persons with prepandemic overweight or obesity and younger school-aged children experienced the largest increases.” (Source)

This is why I share every single one of my children’s lunchboxes (on Instagram and Facebook stories). We need to do better for the next generation. I try to feed my kids a nutrient-dense diet so that, yes, they grow to be big and strong but selfishly, I also feed them well so that I don’t have to take care of a sick child.

Aiden ran a light fever this week and I was sent back to his infant days: he slept by my side and any sudden moves would startle me to wake up and check on him. Let’s just say it wasn’t a fun night.

I don’t remember the last time my kids were sick and I don’t ever take that for granted. And I know in my heart of hearts that it starts with the diet.

with ♥️ and hope for healing,
