The First Steps

My Journey to Health

This is an exciting time for me .. I have begun a journey I think I was always destined to take .. since I was old enough to realise that I was different to my siblings in so many ways, but particularly my health .. I have struggled thru pain all my life ..sometimes indeterminate, seemingly indiscriminate and variously situated .. but almost constant pain somewhere, which I wont elaborate on here, but will put it in a side post, just as a reference. Also to document where I am coming from and what makes me tick.- and what has now improved and is healing for me.

I knew if I was ever going to be well, it would be up to me to make it happen, therefore, I have always been interested in what makes the human body tick.

How does it work? What do we need to do to get it and keep it running well? .. this goes with this, goes with this, goes with that .. Looking at the body as a whole and trying to work with it .. What has become a lifelong passion of mine, to study the basic mechanics of the body, was fanned to a flame by a wonderful High School Biology teacher, who also had a passion for her topic.

Later I learned all I could about foods and good nutrition  (I know that our Creator or Higher Being would not put us on the earth without everything we need and the means to stay well РAfter all, we are such beautifully made creatures, what would be the point otherwise?)

I truly believe that there is a food or a fruit or a vegetable or a herb somewhere, which will help to heal and repair any ailment or accident – we just need to find and learn from, those with the knowledge, which is often *old* knowledge, passed down thru the ages.

I have a girlfriend called Zophia, from Slovenia, whose mother was a renowned herbalist. Zophia has learned much from her, some of which I am fortunate enough that she has passed on to me. Some traditional and ancient remedies .. not found in books or writings, but passed down thru experience and oral history.

I have collected some old *medical* and text books which have some interesting remedies for *what ails you* .. usually beginning either with an Emetic (to make you vomit) or with an Enema or a Sitz bath, to stimulate the digestion, the colon and the bowel .. Now we know that many dis-eases begin in the digestive tract, so they were right on the money!

Another old book, *Back to Eden*, a large paperback, which I referred to and used often when my children were young, seems to have disappeared somewhere and is very sorely missed.

The journey I have now come to  is a more systematic approach to wellness Рa study of wholefood medicine and traditional remedies, re-discovered and dusted off from ancient writings and studied over many years by a man called Don Tolman, affectionately known as *The Wholefood Medicine Man*

Given access to ancient papyrus scrolls, traditional and revered tribal writings and much knowledge and wisdom from many and varied cultures, Don Tolman has learned and is now teaching, Self Care and Self Education as the keys to happier lives and vibrant health. Looking after our bodies as a temple and being responsible for our own well-being is Don’s Message .. and its spreading like wildfire.

This is day one of my journey .. I hope you will share it with me ..
