I was working with a chiropractor, making a self help video video series for his Youtube channel. Each episode shared tips, stretches, and other pieces of advice.
It was going well until we recorded his episode about decreasing sodium intake.:
Client: You have to avoid salt. You see, salt is made up of sodium and chloride, and both are highly volatile chemicals.
He continued with a series of
similarly bogus reasons, while I watched on in disbelief. I didn’t really feel
like explaining basic chemistry to a grown man with several college degrees. I
tried to edit out some of his most egregiously false science in post.
I quit the following week when he started recommending coffee enemas.
