Questions and Answers about
Creating Health... Yourself


InfoReviewsOrder Now

Q: Is good health only about diet?

A: No. In fact, if you want to create good health the first thing you shouldn't do is to go on a "diet". "Going on a diet" implies a short term program that will eventually end, and then what? You go back to the old habits and end up putting on more weight than before! What is needed is a lifestyle change in your eating habits. Something that is 'achievable' and won't make you miserable! Also good health creation is about managing stress. Your attitude to life and happiness and keeping reasonably fit. My book covers all these issues.

Q: I am overweight so I guess the most important issue is to eliminate all fat from my diet?

A: Also if you want to lose weight you must examine the issue of fast releasing sugars.

Wrong. Some fats are not only good for you, they are essential. Whilst the Western diet has seen a dramatic increase in the consumption of that fats that kill (i.e. saturated fats from the animal kingdom and polyunsaturated fats that have been altered by heating) the essential fats such as Omega 3 and Omega 6 have been almost eliminated.

Sugars that are released into the blood stream too quickly result in extra fat and cholesterol and an imbalance in your blood sugar levels. Imbalanced blood sugar leads to a dramatically lower metabolism. So instead of going for a walk you sit and have a coffee instead!

Q: Cow's milk is a very good source of calcium so I should drink it everyday?

A: Cow's milk contains a considerably high amount of calcium. The only problem is that your body cannot absorb calcium without its partner - magnesium. Cow's milk has no magnesium. Cow's milk should be avoided as you can obtain sufficient calcium from plant foods and calcium-magnesium supplements.

By reducing the amount of animal protein and acid-forming foods in your diet the amount of calcium lost through 'leeching' is reduced significantly so the main issue is not so much how much calcium you consume but how much is lost.

Q: I currently drink 8 cups of coffee a day and eat a lot of beef and take-a-ways. I've decided to stop eating or drinking any of these foods as from now! Will this help?

A: Of course it will but remember don't become a 'fanatic' about your diet. Be 'passionate' but not fanatical. Most fanatics are in a grave or sitting around home feeling so miserable that they wish they were in a grave! So start slowly and set realistic goals.

Q: Should I be taking nutritional supplements?

A: Unquestionably yes!
Recent studies confirm that we simply do not get enough vitamins, minerals and enzymes from our food supply. Let me give you an example. One orange supplies about 70 mg of vitamin C. The R.D.I. (Recommended Dietary Intake) for vitamin C (for a middle-aged male) is 40mg per day. But this is to prevent diseases such as scurvy and rickets, not degenerative disease. Most people should be consuming at least 1000 mg of vitamin C daily. Therefore providing you eat around 15 oranges daily, you do not get enough vitamin C from your food!

Q: Is it true that prior to being diagnosed with cancer in 1993 you also had sufferred from arthritis, blood pressure, high cholestoral, sinus and hay fever? What is the current status of your health?

  • Cancer - Full remission
  • Arthritis - Gone
  • Blood pressure - 115:75
  • Cholestoral - Below average
  • Sinus/hay fever - Nil
  • Drugs used to cure the above - Nil
