The True Nature of Disease

One of the most fascinating aspects of studying natural health, and especially the science of Orthopathy (or otherwise known as Natural Hygiene), is the search for the true meaning of disease.

The Raw Food Approach to Well-Being

At 37, my health almost collapsed. I had been in the music business, travelling the world playing gigs for over two decades, and my DJ lifestyle had taken a serious toll on my body – physically and emotionally.
