Pett: Hi. This is Wendy Pett. Director of Sales and Marketing for Bronze Bow Publishing. I am here with KC Craichy. How are you today?

Craichy: I’m doing great, Wendie. How are you doing?

Pett: Good. I’m so glad you could come out to Minneapolis and join us for this interview. KC, before we get rolling I thought it would be a lot of fun for our listeners to learn a little bit about you and tell us a little bit about yourself.

Craichy: I can go back to were the root of the passion came from and that would be when I was in high school. I was an overweight child. I had no idea why that was the case. You know, kids are cruel. So many people can relate to being overweight and the struggles that are associated with that.

Pett: Mm-hmm.

Craichy: At the time nutrition wasn’t a real big deal. So, when I discovered nutrition a light went off in my head. I studied ever major diet since the 1970’s, actually implemented them as well. You learn the ins and outs. I learned what did work and what didn’t work for me and worked with many others in the same regard and so in the mid 80’s I, having been an entrepreneur right out of the shoots even when I was in school I owned companies, but, in the mid 80’s I bought my first health club. That was what got me into the fitness side of health. From there in the late 80’s I made an investment into a medical device company and took that company over because they didn’t do what they needed to do. Through running that company and then getting involved in alternative medicine, and then, having some health challenges in my own family.

Pett: Mm-hmm.

Craichy: Particularly, my son Kyle was two years old and he had ear infections to the point he couldn’t hear and they gave him antibiotics and they said he needed emergency surgery.

Pett: Mm-hmm.

Craichy: We discovered through meeting with a medical doctor who practiced nutritional medicine that he didn’t need emergency surgery. In fact, all he did was change his diet and within a week he got his hearing back and never had another issue with that. That grounded me in the need for clinical nutrition. I made a vow at that point I was gonna get this information to the world.

Pett: So, that was your turning point in your life that you said, ‘Hey, I need to devote my time and my energy into changing the system.’ So to speak.

Craichy: Exactly.

Pett: And, helping others.

Craichy: Yes. Changing lives one person at a time…

Pett: Yeah.

Craichy: …really was the mission. And, that hasn’t changed at this point. I’ve gotten very involved in clinical nutrition at that point and studying nutrition, understanding nutrition, and understanding what the clinical literature said. Not only about nutrition but about lifestyles.

Pett: Tell us at waht age should a person really get started and learn about physical culture?

Craichy: The studies show you that really if you eat a lot until you reach maturity and then go on towards nutrition. It would really be the best of both worlds. But, you know, when train up a child in a way he should not go when he’s old he’s not gonna want to part…

Pett: Right.

Craichy: …so to speak. We get used to eating Twinkies and sugar and sugar now is a staple.

Pett: Right.

Craichy: Fifty years ago the average sugar intake was five pounds a year and it’s grown to 170 pounds a year now in the average. Someone’s eating my sugar. The net of it is that if you practice sound nutrition as a child they can eat a lot but eat a lot of the right things. Right from the time that their in the womb…

Pett: Start.

Craichy: …the mother should practice good nutrition. From the time their a baby they should practice good nutrition and as they learn those things as they grow up their gonna avoid all kinds of diseases and heartache.

Pett: So, don’t start out feeding your baby the pears and the bananas. Start out with those green veggies.

Craichy: Amen sister. What happens is that you go to the grocery store, even the organic isle, there’s mounds of choices, all or rice or potatoes or sweets or pears or apples. The mother wanting to please the child or the dad who is buying the food wants to buy something the child is gonna really love…

Pett. Love.

Craichy: …so they pick the things that taste the best and they feed that to their child. Unfortunately, you’re locking them into the sugar cycle that most of America is on today.

Pett: Absolutely. You look at the grocery stores. The average grocery store you go into if you take your child shopping with you it’s not a lot of fun because these marketing people really have it down. They’ve got all the sugar cereals down on their eye level. They’ve got all the pop tarts, you know, what have you. They put all these fun super hero’s on the packages.

Craichy: The companies right now are legally fighting to keep the right to advertise to your children.

Pett: Right. Right.

Craichy: That’s a pretty scary process…

Pett: Very scary.

Craichy: …because they know the power of the kid’s influence on the parents for what they’re gonna eat.

Pett: Absolutely. Thank you KC.
