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.

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.

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 “The Unexpected Eye Test”

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.

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.

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 “Day One, Year Four: The Second New Year In One Week”

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 have expected to see. My Serrapeptase Adventure has shown me repeatedly, how thrilling life can be when predictions are proved wrong, and the unexpected becomes an accepted part of every day.

Learning The Essentials: Essential Fatty Acids, In Combination

Since January, I have been learning about Essential Fatty Acids. For almost a year now, I have been trying a number of Essential Fatty Acids (in the form of oils) and learning about the individual value of each of them.

Over the next few months, I will be combining the two oils which have given me the best individual results so far – Hemp Seed Oil and Eskimo-3 Fish Oil.

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp Seed Oil (Cold Pressed) is unique with an almost perfectly balanced profile of Omega 9, 3 and 6. Uniquely among common seed oils, it also contains GLA (Gamma-linolenic Acid) and even more uniquely, raises circulating GLA.

Joyce Riley: The Power Hour — Inspiring Change And Mike Tawse

From its very earliest days, My Serrapeptase Adventure has been as much about the kindness and inspiration of people from around the world, as it has been about my continuing search for good health.

Joyce Riley and all The Power Hour team have been, and continue to be, a constant source of information, encouragement, and inspiration. It was Joyce’s interviews with Robert Redfern, which gave me the information I needed, and the confidence to try Serrapeptase for the first time, in January 2006, long before my eyesight was good enough to read the information for myself.

It is for this reason that I am in no doubt that without The Power Hour, my life would have been very different, and I may not have survived at all. Read More “Joyce Riley: The Power Hour — Inspiring Change And Mike Tawse”

Winter Cold Meets The Sunshine Of Olive Groves

Winter has started early this year with October snowfall, in some parts of England, for the first time in decades. Although my health is better now than I ever thought it could be, I am still prone to coughs and colds. The good news is that they do not seem to have such a dramatic effect on me as they used to do. Unfortunately, it still seems to take me longer than most people to fight them off.

With this in mind, I have been keen to find a natural and safe way to boost my immune system, which would complement Serrapeptase, Curcumin, and everything else, which has helped me so far.

Since learning about Blockbuster AllClear, I have been interested in the potential of olive leaf extract. Read More “Winter Cold Meets The Sunshine Of Olive Groves”
