The Story of Best Health Naturally
As an 8 year old I remember sitting on my Grandad's lap proudly announcing that I was going to be a doctor.
That vision came to an end after discovering a few years later that the sight of blood, and hearing tales of surgery and injury made my stomach churn. Quite literally it made me sick to my stomach, and frequently resulted in fainting. I doubt that reaction was ever going to give any patients a sense of comfort and confidence...lol.
Enter Plan B - I turned to Commerce instead. But wellbeing, and a desire to help others has remained.
Illness, disease and death has surrounded me (as it does for everyone). My mother passed away as a result of breast cancer when I was 10.
We'd spent 6 months living in Rarotonga while Mum was treated by Dr Milan Brych. Surrounded by cancer patients who had exhausted all other options, death was an almost daily occurrence. I made friends with Damien, a 9 year old Australian suffering from leukemia who passed away in the room next door. It'd be fair to say that my time there has had a massive effect on me.
As far as my own health goes - I've been very fortunate. My own wake up call wasn't all that severe. A few years ago I developed symptoms of an auto-immune disease. I chose to avoid prescription medication, and after following the advice of a naturopath the symptoms soon disappeared.
Yes, we all have friends and family who have battled, and are battling ill health. The statistics are horrid.
In this modern world 1 in 3 people battle cancer, 1 in 3 heart disease, and over 40% of kids in the USA now have a chronic illness. This is largely a reflection of the fact that 92% of people have a deficiency in at least one significant vitamin or mineral.
Why is this? Well, it's a combination of fast food lifestyles, toxins and pollutants, soil depletion, pharmaceuticals,and stressful lives. A lethal combination.
These are big wicked problems that cannot be changed overnight, and not all of them are within our control.
So, let's focus on what we can do now, and what is within our control. We can pay attention to how we feed our body with good food from our own gardens and farmers markets, and quality supplements. We need to restore a healthy microbiome and immune system.
We'll bring you the best from classics and experts like Earl Mindell who wrote the Vitamin Bible which has sold in excess of 10 million copies, Dr Joel Wallach of Dead Doctor's Don't Lie, and the work of pioneers like Dr Zach Bush.
We'll do our best to put their work into plain English, and make it easy for you to follow and action. What will you do?
It's time to take back control of your health and wellbeing. Please join me, and let's see where it takes us.
Remember - It's Natural To Be Healthy.
All my love
