Several memorable events were the inspiration for writing my books.
First, many patients had documented benefit from adhering to contrary 'fringe' advice. These cases led to a growing curiosity about exploring the growing list of inconsistencies. These inconsistencies should not happen if one adheres to the official view of the medical universe. Back then it was beyond my education level to explain why a diet high in cholesterol and fat, but low in carbohydrate leads to a drop in harmful cholesterol parameters. Years later I have come to understand how the different hormones, that these diets promote, leads to improved cholesterol profile. The science is all there, but it largely is presented in a convoluted and fragmented manner. The reorganization of these scientific facts is presented throughout the manual.
An additional inconsistency occurred regarding obesity. I could never figure out why no one was organizing the hormones causing obesity as they relate to one another. The science was present, but like cholesterol knowledge it was fragmented and disorganized in its presentation in the medical texts. The obesity chapter provides what science knows about gaining and losing fat.
Another learning opportunity started about ten years ago and occurred shortly after I married a pretty chiropractor named Brenda. Humility describes the feeling about my MD degree as my knowledge base was forced into the captive position. I watched with humility what a competent chiropractor accomplished with two hands following a multitude of musculoskeletal complaints. My world was rocked on its medical underpinnings. Thinking outside the box was the next logical step.
Later, I had the opportunity to work alongside naturopaths, other chiropractors, acupuncturists, and homeopaths. Each of their various educational perspectives provided me with additional inconsistencies for the toxic symptom control paradigm that I had been groomed into believing.
Over the last several years I have had time to think about what is actually known about the aging process. Early on I could only come with five reasons for cellular deterioration. In the second year, it became clear that there was evidence for a total of seven mechanisms for how the body ages.
