Next week, I hope to start working with an editor on the first draft of the first chapters of The Health-Care Survivor’s Story. I am looking forward to receiving the first feedback about what I have written, so far, but I must admit it makes me a little nervous.
Until now, My Serrapeptase Adventure has been a deeply personal journey, which I have been privileged to share, in short excerpts, via my blog, on radio, in articles, and even in someone else’s book; Robert Redfern’s, The ‘Miracle’ Enzyme Is Serrapeptase (2009). The prospect of sharing my story in more detail is exciting, but giving it to someone to edit is somewhat daunting. Read More
I hope to have a first draft of the first four chapters of The Health-Care Survivor’s Story, ready for proofreading and initial editing by the end of February 2014.
The First Four Chapters
The first four chapters of the book tell the full story of My Serrapeptase Adventure in much greater detail than is provided by the website, by setting my story in it’s medical context, in order to explain my recovery from the damage inflicted, first by cerebral palsy, then, by a toxic cocktail of prescription medication, and in turn, how my recovery enabled my improved eyesight and visual perception.
Since the allopathic medical system suggested that my eyesight and visual perception were irreparably damaged by cerebral palsy, later chapters will examine how any improvement has been possible, and why the conventional ‘wisdom’ of western, pharmaceutically dominated medicine makes doctors and other specialists so unwilling to recognise the true healing potential of the human body, when it is given the right environment and nutrition.

The Disability Maze Books is a series of books poses a number of significant questions and explores several specific answers as well as ways of thinking, which encourage innovative responses to the challenges of the positive assessment of the individual needs of people with disabilities.
When I started work on these books, colleagues and friends asked me if I wanted to replace the assessment systems with which we are all familiar, with one of my own. Many of them also wanted to know where my focus would be set. Would I concentrate on the fields of education, social-care, or the health system?
My hope is to encourage a holistic, positive, approach to the assessment of individual needs. Read More
Now that the focus of My Serrapeptase Adventure is moving towards detailed research and writing books, including The Disability Maze Books, I have decided to complete Anthony Robbins’ Get The Edge audio programme again. My intention is to give myself a renewed focus and determination to succeed.
The first time I completed Get The Edge was at the beginning of 2006, at about the same time as my adventure started. At that time, I needed to rebuild my confidence and strengthen my resolve, to take responsibility for my health and well being, after many years of illness. The result was My Serrapeptase Adventure, and the confidence to accept the opportunity and the challenge that I believe has saved my Life. Read More
Today, as part of my research for The Disability Maze Books, I visited my optometrist. My intention was to discuss the technicalities of the test procedures, used by optometrists in the UK.
As I have said before, it is often difficult to convert the scores given by visual acuity tests, into useful information for daily life. It is, of course, possible to say that a series of acuity tests show deterioration or improvement, in statistical terms, but when one tries to apply this information to daily life, it becomes very difficult to find agreement, even amongst professionals, about the best way to do this.
