My journey into the health education field began in 1975, when at age 17 my robust health began to gradually decline. A heavy eater of meat and junk food, my physical and mental energies deteriorated over a period of six months, then I experienced incessant diarrhea. After a few weeks of medicine treatment, I showed little improvement, so a colon examination was done. The diagnosis was ulcerative colitis, and I spent my 18th birthday in a hospital, taking prednisone and azulfadine drug treatments. The symptoms subsided, temporarily, but the drugs further ruined my health and had a devastating effect on my mental abilities.
Within a few months, feeling sickly and very weak, I experienced a recurrence of the diarrhea and additional symptoms, including cramping, bleeding, and this lead to further physical deterioration. What ensued were eight tortuous years of colitis flare-ups and off-and-on drug therapy. At,age 26, I was reduced to a weak, sickly shadow of my former self. I was having gastric explosions every time I ate, up to 10 painful bowel movements a day with mucus and blood. My nervous system became shattered as I was toxic, debilitated by the medicines, and severely demineralized. Life became a dying hell, but I never gave in to the medical doctors' advice to accept my illness and just be patient until their impossible "miracle drug cure " came along; I desperately wanted my health back and doubted that the doctors were able to help me.
In 1984, I had the great fortune to find a Doctor of Natural Hygiene, Laurence Galant in Staten Island, who introduced me to the concept of self-healing and eating a natural plant-based diet. At first I thought the idea of eating raw foods while I was having non-stop diarrhea was crazy. Yet, I studied Natural Hygiene and slowly cleaned up my diet. I was attached to eating chicken and other favorite cooked foods, however, and was still having colitis flare-ups and relying on medicines.
In the fall of 1984 I had a colonoscopy exam which confirmed that I had advanced ulcerations throughout my sick colon. Surmising that I had been chronically sick and was not getting better, the gastroenterologist recommended that I either try his experimental drug which knocks out the immune system, or have my colon surgically removed. Upon hearing this, a heavy decisive thought entered my mind: I have had it with this medical nightmare - I'll be dead soon if I don't find the answer myself! My life was a gradual descent into hell and now I had to climb out now because I sensed it was almost too late.
Then one amazing night while studying T. C. Fry's Life Science/Natural Hygiene course, I beheld a healing vision and it all made sense. I understood that I was eating a harmful diet which was not compatible with my digestive physiology, and that I needed to eat a plant-based diet with plenty of raw fruits and vegetables that would allow my body to purge itself of the wastes that were poisoning my colon and preventing me from regaining my health, and would also help me overcome illness and create excellent health. I was ecstatic knowing I had set myself free! The next day I threw away the medicines, divorced myself from all medical intervention for good, gave up all meat and dairy for ever and started a 3-day juice cleanse. By the second day I was coming back to life. On the third day I was feeling better and better and my enthusiasm and joy drove my family and friends crazy! My gut was feeling soothed and I was rejuvenating. I set myself free of illness, doctors and medicines for good, and my bowels were working better and better!!
I adopted a diet with plenty of fruit - that harmonized best with my mind/body/spirit. And with that my energies continuously increased as I detoxified and began rebuilding. Within about six weeks I felt that my colon was completely healed up. I was able to enjoy eating and life again, as my bowels were functioning better than ever. I began a new healthful lifestyle.
Over the next few years I diligently worked at rebuilding my depleted body, incorporating daily running and yoga, all the while studying the life sciences and all of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual factors which determine our health. It took several years of total dedication to build robust health. In 1993, after a year of study and training at the Institute for Educational Therapy in Cotati, California (now known as Bauman College in Penngrove, California), I became certified as a Nutrition Educator and began providing nutrition and healing consultations. In 2006 I earned Ph.D. in Natural Health and Healing and Hygienic Doctor degrees from the University of Natural Health. I later earned Naturorthpathic Doctor and Hygiophysician degrees from the University of Natural Health. In 2010, I relocated to Maui, Hawaii. In 2015 I founded the online Vibrant Health & Wealth Academy, for which I serve as the Dean and Program Co-Director with my wife Annette Davidsson.
Healing, I teach people, is easy if we understand and apply the principle that it is the body that does the healing - - when we remove the unhealthful aspects of our diet and lifestyle and step out of the way, the body will do the healing work automatically and naturally.
Is living healthfully difficult? No! Living healthfully s the easiest and most joyful way to be! And I'm glad to help health seekers get there and feel that for themselves. I love to help health seekers discover the way to heal and build superior health for themselves!
