The Health-Care Survivor’s Story: First Draft Expected

I hope to have a first draft of the first four chapters of The Health-Care Survivor’s Story, ready for proofreading and initial editing by the end of February 2014.

The First Four Chapters

The first four chapters of the book tell the full story of My Serrapeptase Adventure in much greater detail than is provided by the website, by setting my story in it’s medical context, in order to explain my recovery from the damage inflicted, first by cerebral palsy, then, by a toxic cocktail of prescription medication, and in turn, how my recovery enabled my improved eyesight and visual perception.

Later Chapters

Since the allopathic medical system suggested that my eyesight and visual perception were irreparably damaged by cerebral palsy, later chapters will examine how any improvement has been possible, and why the conventional ‘wisdom’ of western, pharmaceutically  dominated medicine makes doctors and other specialists so unwilling to recognise the true healing potential of the human body, when it is given the right environment and nutrition.

Back From The Brink: How Serrapeptase Changed A Life

I am very grateful to Molly Allan, for the following article, in which she offers a concise introduction to My Serrapeptase Adventure, together with her own commentary upon it.

Losing control of one’s health is most people’s worst nightmare. Even when we’re ill, we hope to maintain a reasonable quality of life. Without that, life becomes an endless array of doctors, pills and desperate attempts to manage symptoms. That was the state in which Mike Tawse found himself in 2006.

Understanding The Phytochemical Power Of Turmeric

Sometimes called Indian saffron, turmeric is an ancient ayurvedic medicine that has been used for centuries throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with a long history of use both medicinally and in cuisine. A perennial plant native to South Asia, turmeric is a member of the ginger family. Some regions use the leaves or eat the root raw, but usually the root is harvested, boiled, then dried in hot ovens and ground into powder. The yellow-orange colored powder is used as a spice, a food additive for coloring, and as a dye. It is the main ingredient in curry powder, an earthy, peppery spice used prevalently in many types of cuisine, from Thai to Indian.
