A few years back I was on CTV's Wylde on Health Show with Bryce Wylde, one of the regular featured experts on the Dr Oz show, and Brendan Brazier, Canada's Ultra Marathon Champion and the founder and inspiration behind the Vega brand of products.
Bryce asked me what my impetus was for creating Voyage to Betterment. The same impetus that I had to share what I discovered with a dermatologist in 1996, is the same impetus that created Voyage to Betterment and the same impetus that fuels me today. Deep down inside, there exists an immense love and devotion to each other, and this is why so many people dedicate their lives to being of service to others...
Something felt funny in my gut when I left the office. So rather than get the prescription filled I started to do some research and experimented on myself. After two months I found the foods that contributed to my eczema. I stopped eating them & the eczema went away. I cured eczema without needing to be dependent on drugs.
I booked another appointment with the dermatologist excited to share the good news that there is a cure. I waited 6 months to see him because I felt it was my duty to share the good news with the doctor so he could share it with his patients that would obviously want to know how to heal from their eczema and psoriasis.
He walked into the room, looked at my fingers and said, good the prescriptions are working. I advised him that I didn’t take any and that I was able to heal by learning what foods contributed to eczema and eliminating them. I had the best of intentions and just wished to share my discovery for free so he could help his patients. He said to me “Young man, I have seen thousands of cases of eczema, and can assure you that there is no cure and diet has nothing to do with it.” Then he walked away, angry.
Modern medicine is focused on treating symptoms of three thousand different diseases that come from “out there”. This does not work well, because the roots of the problems remain to cause havoc in many other ways in future days. After the lesson the dermatologist taught me I began to question everything doctors told me.
My migraine headaches started in childhood. Often the episodes were so severe I went blind. The best doctors could do was give me pills to manage the pain. The consensus among all the doctors and specialists I saw, as well as the world’s top neurologists today, is, that there is no cure for migraines. They too are all wrong.
The process to cure myself of migraines was far more complex than eczema. It took me several years to learn how to effectively embrace my entire constitution of body mind and spirit to reveal and purge the contributing factors that led to my migraines. The knowledge I was gifted, in the process, modern medicine knows virtually nothing about and naturopathic medicine has only scratched its surface. I cured myself so completely of migraines that I haven’t had the slightest headache in over ten years.
The side effects of this comprehensive approach to natural healing is that I also healed everything else, including acne, ring worm, hay fever, depression, insomnia, stress, premature wrinkling, hypothyroidism, candidiasis, recurring pink eye, and constant red eyes. I also healed or significantly improved irreversible injuries, bad knees, bad hips and a bad back, also known as patella femoral syndrome, herniated disk and degenerative lower back disease. I haven’t had any back pain in years.
Rather than treat the symptoms of thousands of diseases that come from “out there”, I focused on only one thing, improving myself “in here”. As we learn to effectively and continuously improve our entire composition of body mind and spirit and correlated level of immunity we will progressively heal of nearly everything and become less susceptible to all of those thousands of diseases that exist ”out there.”
I healed myself so completely that blood tests revealed that I am in the lowest percentiles possible for ever developing cancer diabetes or heart disease. HRV tests with the Heart Math Institute technology and the Azumio Stress Check reveal that I remain in optimal states of immunity balance and coherence. I rarely even get a cold. There is nothing special about me. What worked for me ought to work for anyone.
So I tested it out on my business partner Dave. I wrote out what I did for him and provided some regular coaching. We documented with before and after blood tests that Dave’s risk of developing cancer, heart disease and diabetes dropped by over 50% in only 30 days. The lab that performed the analysis had never seen such an improvement. I scientifically proved that what worked for me, worked for Dave.
I then contemplated how I could best be of service to the world and realized I had been a teacher my whole life. Starting in childhood I was always selected by my peers and coaches to be the captain, trainer or player coach of nearly every team I played on. In business, my companies employed over 500 individuals. In business, after about ten employees, the leader’s role goes from doing, to teaching. So I just did what was obvious, and embraced teaching others to the best of my ability.
