Connection – Discover How You & Your Health are Connected to, well, Everything!


After over a century of reductionism in medicine we need to relearn how our health and wellbeing are connected to the functioning of our body mechanics, the food we eat, the way we breathe, our mental state, our family and community life, the environment we live in and much more. We need to restore “Wholism ” or “Holism” to our teaching and practice of medicine if we are ever to have a sustainable health service. “Connection” by Michael Lingard gives a brief insight and practical advice as to how we can start to regain a deeper understanding of health and sickness that goes beyond “Pill for Every Ill”.

Visit our website for more information and details of “The Real Health Assessment” as a pdf to download HERE . This Health Assessment is aimed at checking the key factors that lay the foundation for your health: your body structure, your diet, your breathing and your stress unlike standard Health Assessments that are designed to identify pathologies; you can usually get the medical tests from your doctor if necessary free of charge on the NHS.

Doctors: Transform your practice from “disease” care to “health” care.

Plant-based Nutrition Quick Start Guide

Designed to serve as a road map for patients or clients desiring to exercise greater control over their health through their dietary lifestyle, the PBN Quick Start Guide is filling the void! Many doctors in the USA & Canada are saying that this is “the best” educational resource they’ve ever encountered for their practices! Click here for PDF copy.

The study of disease, or pathology, has been the mainstay of modern medicine and we have become very skilled in identifying and naming more and more diseases, most of which could be eliminated or at least less prolific through the study and application of health promotion or ethology. The evidence is now available to show this is true. Remember the evidence that tobacco was a killer was available for decades before the medical profession accepted it, do we need to wait another fifty years before everyone is aware that diet and lifestyle are the main factors of health or disease?

Much of this information has been gathered on the TotalHealthMatters! website: HERE

Health Without Medicine!

Nothing is new in this world! The great question that we all have to address today is a life changing question:

“Is there really a pill for every ill or can we all learn how to live a healthy life with the right guidance and support?”

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease. “- Thomas A. Edison. 1847-1931

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” – Albert Einstein. 1879-1955

” Example is not the main thing in influencing others; it’s the only thing.” – Albert Schweitzer 1875-1965

” It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” – Albert Einstein 1847-1931

“The most powerful way to restore health is often to do nothing- intelligently.” – Dr. Alec Burton 1930-2016

“There is a Ministry of Health, and the Department of Health. Surely, in the long view, this should be The Ministry, and Department of Public Happiness?” – Lord Horder 1871-1955

“One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient, is in caring for the patient” Dr. Francis W Peabody 1881-1927

I am just one among the many thousands of individuals, either medically trained or general members of the public interested in enjoying a long, active and healthy life who are trying to take more responsibility for their own health and well being.

My small contribution is based on trying to distill the essence of many great minds who have studied health and its origins in the past; much of this is on my website HERE that I hope will be of value to others on this quest.
This year we have launched “The Real Health Assessment” Download a pdf leaflet HERE

The Real Health Assessment

Most health checks are focused on pathology, screening for diseases or markers for possible future health problems and little information or advice is offered the client on health promotion and possible therapies that would help them.
Our Health Assessment is primarily designed to identify areas of your lifestyle that you can change to improve your health and fitness and to reduce the chances of serious diseases in the future.
Doctors are not trained in health promotion; most of their training being devoted to pathology and medical treatment with drugs or surgery; it is this neglected area of healthcare that we focus upon.
“Health promotion” is about far more than simply the prevention of disease or sickness. It seeks to give individuals the kind of health and zest most of us only experienced when we were very young.
There is a widespread view that we should all feel less healthy as we get older but this is not necessarily true, some of my “youngest” patients are in their eighties!
So what is so different?
We check your mechanics, the Body Connection.
We check your diet, the Food Connection.
We check your breathing, the Breath Connection
We check your stress, the Mind Connection.
You then will receive practical advice in a report as to what you can do yourself to improve your health and reduce the risk of future serious diseases based on the best research information currently available.
