On A Personal Note

June 12, 2019

Over the years many people have asked me why I have chosen this kind of work? Did I have a calling, a passion or just an interest?

Well, let me tell you that all of the above and more have been the driving force behind my work. More out of necessity than idle dreams.

A long time ago when travelling the world for 4 years to explore the planet and its people I decided to take time out to study and live in the mountains of the Himalayas with local tribes and communities. As part of my preparation I decided to see a local doctor to be advised as to what I needed to be aware of in regards to diseases etc.

I was prescribed Anti Malaria drugs to protect me from the disease which was rampant in these mountains.

I took the meds trusting that they would protect me.

I took them for 6 months as per instructions only to find out years later that I was only meant to take them for 2 weeks….the money was surly more important to the doctor than telling me the truth.

10 years later I developed a chronic degenerative disease which nearly crippled me. In my research I discovered that the most outstanding side effect of my malaria drug was the exact illness I was subject to.

I went to see a specialist professor who after lengthy discussion wanted me to go on a cocktail of drugs including Chemotherapy.
I refused the treatment because I already knew what these drugs would do to my already compromised immune system.

I decided to take matters into my own hands and mustered whatever energy I had left to travel to countries where I could be trained and treated as a means by which to overcome my ailments.

I spent an awful lot of money and it means nothing to me today because I managed to overcome my illness sufficiently to be able to again engage in my hobbies…snow skiing, walking, horse riding etc.

Consequently I have since introduced all the different modalities I needed in my recovery into my clinical work. I thought if it worked for me there must be hope for others.
There you go. I thought I would share my story with you to let you know you are not alone and there will always be hope of some kind waiting for you.

Please let me also say that there is a place for all medicines in this world. No one has the miracle cure for everything.
I do not treat any diseases or illness in my clinic but find the most important aspect: “The obstacle to recovery”.

Regardless of which treatment you engage in if you do not remove the obstacle to recovery the problem will return.

I send you many blessings and a speedy and comprehensive recovery.
