At 74 I have had a generally happy life, but that’s too much to cover in a short story, so let’s concentrate on the last 4 years of health with a few flip backs to the past, and how LCHF and liver supplementation has changed my life.

About 4 years ago my son Olaf who has studied health and nutrition for years, returned from overseas, where he among other influential people had met Dr.David Perlmutter and read his book ‘The Brain Maker.’

My wife and I thought that we always had lived healthily and made most main meals from the ground up. We’d always been aware of the importance of exercise. Olaf convinced us to adopt a LCHF diet, we didn’t go ‘cold turkey’, but bit by bit we cut out SUGAR, GRAIN PRODUCTS, and POTATOES. We added more coconut oil, animal fat, olive oil, dairy cream, butter and full fat cheese.

Looking back over the last 4 years, what has really happened? Had there been any change health wise?

Not really at first glance, BUT THEN I had suffered from 50 years of continuous migraines. For 40 of those years I had to take 1 day a week off the calendar and the day after was no good either, but that became my ‘NORMAL.’

Now 4 years down the track, I have not had one single headache for that 4 years. My sinus congestion, whereby I could not breath through my nose at night, all cleared up, no problems. My hearing that was dramatic reduced during pneumonia 7 years ago was somewhat restored.

I have never had a flu vaccination, but used to have a regular attack when the season changed, NOW I have not had any flu or any disease in the last 4 years.

Even I am in the ‘high risk group’ by age, NOT QUITE “NORMAL”

Things like niggling joints, jammed up jaw, the inability to put weight on my heels, back pain, hay fever, two hip replacements and two hernia operations, were all put down to: “You are growing old, its part of life – OLD AGE.”

But after overcoming all those perfectly “NORMAL” health conditions at 74, I feel I am as fit as ever, both mentally and physically.

The family together with a good friend has started to manufacture a unique dietary supplement based on beef liver, which has been my passion to do for many years.

I honestly believe that regular supplementing with our Liver/Kelp product, featuring B12 and Iodine, made under the banner of Grassland Nutrition, that has been trialled for a few years now is another key factor to my good health; I am now looking forward to the next 30 years at least!
