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 oil, it also contains GLA (Gamma-linolenic Acid) and even more uniquely, raises circulating GLA. Read More

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

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

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 sport 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, in order to make sense of the game. Read More

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. Read More

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 certainly 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 learnt 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

Time To Get Fit Again!

I have always known that maintaining good health means much more than simply being free of disease and prescription medication. It is equally important to achieve and to maintain 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

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.
