It seemed like from what I remember the JW's were always looking into so many alternative medicines and fad diets. And those easy money schemes, does anyone remember these? instead of just getting a college education they spent so much time looking into job alternatives. In our family they sold mary kay, amsoil, everything but amway and the only reason they didnt get into amway was the religious connection to it. And to be God's healthy people they were always sick. My father used to purchase whole wheat crust on our pizzas and this was back in the early 80's when it wasnt cool, and they were vitamin freaks too, my dad and stepmom took probably 10 different vitamins a day yet they were forever more visiting the doctors office for one various medical complaint or another. I used to just want to ask them "why trust in Jehovah for your everlasting life, when you are trying your best to achieve this through medicine and health techniques" where was their faith? In God? or there own pursuit of a healthy lifestyle? please feel free to share some of your experiences as a JW and the various medical quackery and get rich quick schemes.
