Welcome and thanks for visiting my blog.
The aim of this site is simple: To create an awareness of the health effects of environmental toxin exposure from chemicals and heavy metals and to explain to you the safest and most effective ways to go about eliminating these toxins to regain health.
I began writing about health and detox protocols and put my first website up back in 2004 after curing a range of chronic health issues.
It took me a very long time to restore my health when I became ill during University in 1989. For over 15 years I suffered with: Fatigue, Brain Fog, Chronic Allergies, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Digestion Disorders and Severe Cramps. I then spent a 15 years looking for a cure for all my health complaints using every conventional and complementary therapy available.
The net result: None of my G.P.’s were able to alleviate my symptoms (I was written off as psychosomatic, thanks Doc!) and I then wasted £20,000 on treatments and tests that did little to help me as they didn’t address the root cause of my illness.
This root cause was finally identified in 2000 by a heavy metals test that showed elevated mercury and high levels of lead, – the lead was quite literally off the chart. I had already had a blood test by a laboratory in 1991 but due to the misunderstanding about toxicity, the “low” levels of metals found were disregarded. From 2000 I spent a four years ineffectively detoxing the heavy metals with products that did little to bring those levels down.
Fortunately I found a detox system that did work.
As this G.P./Doctor commented:
I had suffered with CFS for over two years. I had visited every naturopath, physician, nutritionalist possible and spent well over £10 000, all to no avail.
I was at the point of giving up….it had affected my work and my relationship and i was now so low that I could no longer see a future for myself. I so longed for the days when I didn’t wake with that heavy, headache ill feeling…..hope was fading. In a last effort I started surfing the net and came across Ian’s ebook……it was like reading about myself, only this guy was better!! Living a normal life again!
I found the book very informative and knowledgeable am a medical practitioner and found it’s content well researched and accurate. Most importantly, it gave me hope….. I got in touch with Ian and saw his nutritionalist who put me on the detox and I’m feeling the best I have in years! Without Ian’s ebook, I dread to think where I might be today. I’m certainly very grateful

Looking back, I could see that all I had been doing in the past was chasing symptoms (Allergies/Fatigue/Candida Yeast/I.B.S.) and trying to relieve them when my focus should have been on effectively tackling the root cause: the chemicals and heavy metals. (I also tested positive for xylene and other chemicals). Once I started doing this detox, that used scientifically proven metal chelators, supplements, a high fats, low carb (H.F.L.C.) and high protein, diet – my health improved quickly.
I hope this site gives you inspiration to tackle your own health problems and avoid the huge amount of wasted time, relationship and career blocks and loss of confidence, that illness inevitably causes.
