Mike Tawse And His Amazing Journey — The Power News Network: Spring 2008 Edition

I would like to thank Joyce Riley, and all at The Power Hour, for their continued encouragement, and interest in My Serrapeptase Adventure. Recently, I received a very generous gift, from Joyce and the team, including several fascinating and informative books, covering a variety of natural health related topics. Also included, with the books, was a copy of the latest edition of The Power News Network, which contains the following article.

In December 2005, in a small ground floor flat near Manchester University, 36-year-old Mike Tawse was sitting in his wheelchair — as he had done for the previous ten years — and wondering if he was to have (or wanted) another year of life.

Olympic Eye Opener

Another Olympics is over, and the Great Britain team has its best results for one hundred years (since the London games of 1908). I am not a great sports fan, so what does this have to do with me, Serrapeptase, Curcumin, MaxiFocus or any other part of My Serrapeptase Adventure?

Like many people, who do not think of themselves as dedicated sports watchers, I take more interest in the Olympics than in any other sports event. One reason for me never having taken much notice of sport before my eyesight began improving, in late 2006, is that I literally could not see well enough to follow many sports. It was always particularly difficult to focus on more than one person, or object, to make sense of the game. Read More “Olympic Eye Opener”

My Core-Muscle Strength Has Improved, Immensely

Today, during my regular gym session I was allowed to use one of the abdominal toning machines (for crunches), without having someone standing next to me, for safety. This is a clear sign that my core-muscle strength has improved, immensely, which has positive implications for good health.


OxySorb: Breath Of Life!

Like many people who have spent a lot of time in hospitals, I thought I understood the importance of oxygen saturation. I am used to having my saturation level monitored and measured by doctors, nurses and paramedics. Although I first heard about OxySorb some time ago, I have only recently started to learn about it in any detail.

Today, I have taken OxySorb (a formulation of Oxygen Absorbing Enzyme (OAE) from Norwegian Kelp) for the first time. I will be happy to learn more about what OxySorb (OAE) can do for me. The following is just a small part of what I have discovered so far.

We breathe approximately 5000 gallons of air a day, but what if you could increase your oxygen intake by 2-3%, enabling your lungs to put more oxygen into the bloodstream with every breath. Read More “OxySorb: Breath Of Life!”

Time To Get Fit Again!

I have always known that maintaining good health means much more than merely being free of disease and prescription medication. It is equally important to achieve and to support the best possible level of fitness. Once again, it is time to renew my gym membership, and I hope, this time, to be able to sign up for a full year, subject to any medical approval, which may be necessary.

I am looking forward to my continuing progress towards improved fitness and even greater good health.

The Fitness Story So Far

Following a conversation, off-air, with Joyce Riley (The Power Hour), in September 2006, I decided to contact Ronnie Natali, at WeCanTogether for advice. Read More “Time To Get Fit Again!”

From Wheelchair To Cartwheels: By Jenny Pulling

Regular readers will know that I am happy to report what other people are saying about My Serrapeptase Adventure. I have just received the following article, written for Naturally Healthy Publications, by Jenny Pulling. Jenny has given her personal view of the first two years of My Serrapeptase Adventure, which continues to this day.

Naturally Healthy Publications: June 2008

‘Ripples on water, the myriad shapes of leaves and plants: because of my poor eyesight I never expected to see these beauties. They were limited to my imagination based on friends’ descriptions. Now everything has changed, I am seeing the world with fresh eyes.’ This poetic description of Mike Tawse’s regained sight marks the latest chapter in his Serrapeptase Adventure.

In The Picture: The Photographer’s View

Mike Tawse V Our Stairs: Some Things Are More Important Than Rules

Matthew received a call from Mike Tawse requesting a photo shoot in his studio for an upcoming book. Mike has cerebral palsy and so the shoot posed a few challenges, not least a flight of stairs! Sadly, Mike had received the cold shoulder from other studios he had contacted…

“…What with health and safety it’s more trouble than it’s worth…”

Having already agreed to accept the commission, and hearing about Mike’s experience with other photographers, Matthew was even more determined to assist. Mike’s a thoroughly nice chap and together we proceeded to break every rule in the health & safety manual getting him up and down stairs… but ya know what, it was the least we could do, particularly for such an inspirational guy who has overcome so many obstacles throughout his life.

Learning The Essentials: Hemp Seed Oil The King Of Them All!

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.

Research around the world has shown that hemp oil (as can all essential fatty acids) boosts the body’s natural ability to heal and boost our immune systems.

The Essential Fatty Acids in hemp are renowned for their ability to improve cell growth and organ function, vitality and mental state.

Extensive studies have shown that many common illnesses (e.g., Eczema) are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body, in particular, Omega 3, 9 and 6. Read More “Learning The Essentials: Hemp Seed Oil The King Of Them All!”

In The Picture

On Monday, I had some photographs taken for my websites and some other forthcoming projects, by a local professional photographer. I have added pictures to each of my four sites.

For many people with spastic forms of cerebral palsy, it can be challenging to get good quality photographs taken, because of our tendency to flinch and to blink in response to camera flash and to camera noise. The solution, it seems, is persistence and a little ingenuity. I am grateful to Matt (Matthew Seed Photography, Manchester) for having plenty of both.

Matt’s first idea was to use constant background lighting, which was bright enough to make the flash less noticeable. Read More “In The Picture”

From MaxiFocus To Minute Detail

At last, I think I have made sense of the multitude of measurements, which I have been given during recent eye tests.

It looks as though the smallest print size that I can actually read (outside test conditions) is 4 point. For those of you who prefer traditional measurements, this means a print size of 4/72 of one inch.

Of course, I will keep you informed of any further progress, but for me, the most critical question to answer is what has led to this remarkable improvement, which has developed since November 2006?

I am still trying to find a definitive medical opinion, and I will be fascinated if one ever emerges. Read More “From MaxiFocus To Minute Detail”
