90: To Vaccinate Or To Stay Healthy

Anyone who heard yesterday’s edition of The Power Hour will know that I have made a firm, personal, decision not to accept the swine flu vaccination. Although my reasons are a matter of personal choice, I believe that they are based upon logic:

  • My Serrapeptase Adventure has freed me from the ‘toxic cocktail’ of prescription medication, so it makes little sense to me to accept a vaccination that is not compulsory
  • I am not convinced that the risk of swine flu is significant enough, to merit unnecessary medical intervention
  • I am concerned about the potentially negative impact of some of the individual ingredients, listed in the vaccines offered in the UK
  • I am most concerned that it will not be possible to determine the long-term effects of this vaccination until it has been in long-term use, but there are a growing number of reports of adverse reactions among people who have been vaccinated
  • Since I do not have any means to independently evaluate all the available scientific data, I have decided that I will not take a vaccine, the benefits of which are at least as uncertain as the risks

As always, I will continue to be happy to learn, if any conclusive evidence becomes available, but I am as sure as I can be that the choice I must make is to vaccinate or to stay healthy. Read More

89: The Power Hour: Serrapeptase And The HealthPoint

Today, I had the pleasure of being invited to join The Power Hour, to update the show’s regular listeners with my progress and to introduce new listeners to Serrapeptase and the remarkable story of My Serrapeptase Adventure. Later in our conversation, Joyce Riley and I welcomed Robert Redfern, to discuss the HealthPoint. Robert also answered listener’s questions.

88: Feeling Fantastic At 40!

FantasticAt40Wow! It is July 2009, I made it to my 40th birthday, and I feel fantastic!

In the final few months of 2005, leading up to the beginning of My Serrapeptase Adventure (January 2006), I was surviving on a day-to-day basis, and I was surprised each time I survived another week.

Now, more than halfway through the fourth year of My Serrapeptase Adventure, as I look ahead to my fifth decade of life and beyond, it still amazes me to know that I have a future. I am sure that it will be a future filled with opportunities and challenges. I look forward to continuing to learn from the fantastic people who have enabled and inspired My Serrapeptase Adventure, so far, and to meeting new people in the months and years to come. Read More

Natural Health: Taming Nature’s Fury!

Today, I was narrowly missed by a lightning strike, which hit the ground about 30 to 40 yards away, but it seemed far closer to me. Once I recovered from the shock of such an enormously loud sound, and a bright flash, I realised that even this drama was another opportunity to learn more about my improving health.

It is difficult to imagine that there is anyone who would not have been shocked by such an experience, or that they would not have jumped. I, of course, was no different. Cerebral palsy still makes me prone to jump (spasm) in response to unexpected sounds, or suddenly changing light levels, so, of course, I jumped at least twice… and it hurt for a few seconds.

86: Understanding Optometry

Following the unexpected results of last month’s eye test, and my optometrist’s suggestion that the remarkable, and continuing improvement in my eyesight and visual perception, which are among the most precious gifts of My Serrapeptase Adventure, would make an interesting subject for research, I contacted The Institute of Optometry.

Today, I received a reply to some of my questions. Although The Institute is not able to offer specific advice about my condition or to comment upon the details of my adventure, the information I have received does include some very useful recommendations for further reading. Read More

85: The Unexpected Eye Test

Today, as part of my research for The Disability Maze Books, I visited my optometrist. I intended to discuss the technicalities of the test procedures, used by optometrists in the UK.

As I have said before, it is often difficult to convert the scores given by visual acuity tests, into useful information for daily life. It is, of course, possible to say that a series of acuity tests show deterioration or improvement, in statistical terms, but when one tries to apply this information to daily life, it becomes challenging to find agreement, even amongst professionals, about the best way to do this.

My own experience suggests that the testing procedures, commonly used by psychologists in the fields of health, education, and social care, are prone to the same problem. Read More

84: Curcumin: An Ancient Gift For Modern Health

I have been writing about Curcumin, since February 2006. The astonishing effect it has had upon my eyesight continues to be among the most joyous gifts of My Serrapeptase Adventure, and my continuing journey towards good, and improving, health.

Although most of the questions, sent to me by those who read my story, or who have heard it on the radio, will probably always be about Serrapeptase, among the people who know me personally, I am much more often asked about Curcumin. This is, perhaps, because the improvements in my eyesight have been among the most unexpected of all. It is for this reason that now in 2009, I am still learning about Curcumin. Read More

83: Medication Is A Distant Memory

MedsTToday, February 18, 2009, is another milestone in My Serrapeptase Adventure. It is the first full day of my fourth year, free from the ‘toxic cocktail,’ popularly known as prescription medication.

I continue to be inspired by the fact that Serrapeptase began to free me from my symptoms within hours, and then, within weeks, from the medications, which I now believe may have been known and expected to cause, or worsen them.

I still have so much to learn about how The ‘Miracle’ Enzyme, Serrapeptase, is able to have such a wide-ranging impact upon my health, but I am enjoying the challenge. As the memory of medication becomes more distant, I continue to replace it with older, happier memories, and I look forward to continuing to add the new ones, which come from a future filled with opportunities and enthusiasm for life.

82: Day One, Year Four: The Second New Year In One Week

Today, January 3, 2009, is my second chance to celebrate a brand New Year in the space of one week. Today is the first full day of the fourth year since I took Serrapeptase for the first time.

Regular readers will know that the quality of my life has been improving, ever since the beginning of My Serrapeptase Adventure. I am sure that the improvements will continue, and that new and exciting challenges will bring me a future to which I can look forward with confidence. It is a future, which I will be happy to share with you, through the pages of this blog.

As always, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people, from around the world, whose support continues to inspire and to enable My Serrapeptase Adventure. Read More

81: 2008: The Unexpected Becomes An Accepted Part Of Every Day

At the beginning of a bright new year, I found myself looking forward to the opportunities, which lay ahead, and to the challenges through which I would continue to learn on my way towards reaching them. 2008, was a year in which the unexpected became an accepted part of every day. It was another year free of toxins… a life to be lived and not just survived.

January 3rd 2008 was the second anniversary of the first time I took Serrapeptase, or the first day of my third year of adventure. This was a day, which, just a few short years ago, I could not reasonably have expected to see. My Serrapeptase Adventure has shown me repeatedly, the thrill life can be when predictions are proved wrong, and the unexpected becomes an accepted part of every day.
