There is no way any health advisor, of any medical profession, can neglect the statistics that vegans and vegetarians live longer, healthier and slimmer. If they do, they have simply not done their home work. If it is not evident by just looking at a vegan compared with a carnivore we have known this fact for about 40 years now. Just try it, or if eating more plants seem unthinkably hard for you, you might want to see some research, so continue reading below.
It’s simple; aging is oxidation caused by toxins becoming free radicals, which you probably heard of. Oxidation is like ‘rusting’ and as iron turns brown, we turn grey haired and wrinkled at sight, but our organs ‘rust’ too, even if you can’t see it. More in detail this oxidation or destruction of our cells is happening as our mitochondria (the ‘power station’) in our cells where food that we eat is converted into cellular energy together with the oxygen we breathe. If it can’t produce energy the cells die, causing aging or a disease on their way to death. To stop this we have an enzyme called SOD (superoxide dismutase). This enzyme activity is much larger if we eat plants. Whereas if we eat animals we get more toxins for the fewer SoD’s to deal with.
To stop this cellular death we have two choices; stop the intake of toxins, and for those that we can’t avoid we can eat more antioxidants and vitamins and minerals to produce more SOD. There is enough toxins in our environment to cause this oxidation so why willingly put more in us if we have a choice? Now, to the point… A large body of science have showed that a plant based (vegan) diet is helping the cells stay healthy and live longer. And when we study death it is a very clear result, either you are dead or alive, and there is no doubt. What I found over the years is that vegetarians and even better vegans live 17 – 35 years longer than the population in general.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
