In my youth, I was very sick. I was told countless times how my illness was ‘incurable’ and how I had ‘bad genes.’ Now, I am very well. Don’t buy into the cynical diagnosis that your only option is disease and drugs. Most modern diseases have nothing to do with genetics. You can change how your genes express themselves. You can change your health; you can feel better, lighter, healthier and more alive. You could add 40 happy years to your lifespan. You can live longer. You can transform your life and feel reborn. You can keep up with your children and grandchildren and play, play, play … The only questions are: do you want it bad enough, and are you willing to do what it takes?
Sick, sick, sick
I know what it is like to be sick, really sick. The kind of sick where you think you are going to die and just getting through the hour, or the day, is all you can focus on. When you get that sick it takes over your life. It means that everything you do goes through the ‘Can I do it?’ or ‘Will I be okay?’ filter, until you get to the point where you question your ability in almost all areas of your life. Your experience of being alive is dominated and limited by your sickness.
When you are sick to the point of it being a disability, you are busy trying to stop dying, rather than busy being alive. Your ability and potential is dulled, and the cost of the illness dominates your creativity, energy, expectations, experiences and choices. Everyone has some health issues, be they minor or all-encompassing, but when you are as healthy as you can be, then you have the ability to do anything.
Someone once said that people want more money, time or prestige. What I offer is more health. Being genuinely healthy is the single most important thing there is, as it gives you the freedom to be anything you want to be, to do anything to which you set your mind and to travel anywhere you want. To come from my level of sickness and medication to the health I have now shows what can be achieved through commitment and consistency to simple dietary changes. It also shows the incredible healing power of the human body. My experience with extreme poor health and my return to extreme good health has given me my focus in life, my passion (apart from my love of family, friends, fun, music, movies and mayhem!), and my calling.

My way is just one way
The process I propose is one way to get your health back. I do not profess for a moment that my way is the right way, or the only way. It is simply a choice. It has completely transformed my health, cured me and made a dramatic, positive difference for thousands of people I have worked with over the last nearly 30 years. The smallest changes to your daily routine can result in the most profound and powerful improvements to your health. This is where I can help. My aim is to educate, elucidate and inspire you to see foods for what they are: the immediate and most powerful solution to all your health issues. Foods are the single most influential factor in your energy levels, your skin, your vitality, your aging and your longevity. Charles Remington said, ‘Food is not the problem, food is the solution.’
So, how did I get started down this road? Well, let’s go way back to the year that The Beatles (The World’s Best Ever BandTM) launched an insignificant album called Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band …
Everyone is weird once you get to know them, and I am certainly no exception. I was born by caesarean section, two months premature, as my mother had developed toxemia. I was a very weak and sick little boy. The policy in those days was to leave all smaller babies at hospital until they weighed at least six pounds (which in my case, took six weeks), so my mum would express milk every day and Dad would drive it to the hospital for me. When they took me home I was still so small Mum and Dad wrapped me in a shopping basket designed to carry two pounds of butter. I developed asthma and many other health problems and this continued until I changed my diet and lifestyle and cured myself in my mid-20s.
