Like most people in the modern world, I took my health for granted. I spent the first 40+ years of my life abusing both my physical body and also my mental and emotional body. I went through life angry most of the time, experienced various childhood traumas and many broken relationships as an adult.

I gave up smoking in 2007, became a vegetarian and thought I was well on the road to becoming a healthy adult. What I didn’t do was look at not only healing my body but also healing my mind and my self abuse continued. I drank too much, I was still angry and probably the worst part was, I thought I was healthy.

In 2018 things became real for me and my family. After years of ignoring my bodies cries for help, the option to ignore it was no longer available. I was hospitalised several times over a period of 16 months and underwent 5 surgeries. My family was suffering, my relationship with my new wife suffered and most of all my relationship with myself crumbled. I had hit rock bottom. It was during this time I reached out to Tyler Tolman, initially ignoring his suggestions that an extended fast would help me and my health and I continued to decline both emotionally and physically all the while trying to continue in a highly stressful career.

Finally, Dec 2019 my wife and I decided we needed Tyler’s help and we would do whatever it would take to be able to follow his advice. I headed to Bali in February of 2020, after being coached by Tyler for a month leading up to this trip, I underwent a 28 day water/ juice fast (22 days of water only) and watched – with amazement – my body begin to heal. Not only was my body healing itself through the fasting but being coached by Tyler and Thor with various modalities used, my mind also began the long journey of healing.

I came home with a whole new purpose, I wanted to share this with everyone – initially even those who didn’t want to hear it! I signed up to become a Tolman coach and have not looked back. I’m not going to say it’s been an easy ride, but the personal growth I have experienced is priceless. I am a changed man, or should I say, I am the man I was born to be.
I have found my life’s purpose and will be forever grateful to Tyler, Thor and the Tolman community for lighting the path and showing me the way to true health and wellbeing.

Praise for Dean Paten

In June 2020 I had a Gallstone attack. At the time I didn’t know what the pain was, only that it was the most sever pain I had ever felt. I was hospitalised for 2 days and in this time I spoke with dean on the phone and told him of my condition. This is the beginning of my Health Story…. Dean coached me through a Gallbladder cleanse, this cleansed me of hundreds of gallstones. To say I was gobsmacked is an understatement. I went back to my normal way of eating after the cleanse, eg. Meat and Dairy and I suffered another 2 attacks in the 6 weeks that followed and another 2 cleanses that cleansed even more stones. At this time I was on the waiting list for surgery and 2 days before my surgery was due I spoke with Dean on the phone and he pretty much laid it out straight. What really stuck in my head was him saying “Once you have it out it will never grow back” He said give him 3 months and if I don’t feel great by this time then go ahead with the surgery. I cancelled my surgery that day and I have never looked back since. I had a zoom call with Dean and Tyler Tolman the following day, I can honestly say that this was the day that I committed 100% to my health and stopped stuffing around. I embraced the 7 principles of health, with Dean holding me accountable and coaching me every step of the way. I learn every day to love myself a little more and I embrace this best version of myself and smile. I truly have found health and happiness, and to thank Dean for his love, advice, knowledge and wisdom. Without you I would not be where I am today. Danielle O’Halloran Ashby NSW

I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I found Dean on the Tolman Coaches page and resonated with his story. After our initial consultation Dean designed a 3-month program to assist me in working towards better health and becoming pain free. I was taking medication for a range of health issues including painful arthritis and looking down the barrel of a future with diabetes. I began to embrace the 7 principles of health as recommended by Dean to begin my journey to becoming not only pain free but to also reverse the health issues I’d been enduring for many years now, including high cholesterol and digestive issues. While I am a work in progress, I now have the knowledge and experience to continue this amazing life changing adventure. I am loving all aspects of my life, from pain free exercise to becoming aware of what I am fuelling my body with. I live my life now with more energy then ever before along with feelings of peace and inner calm – thanks to Dean for his passion, determination, and loving kindness my future looks very bright.

After witnessing my mother turn her health around and become a shining beacon of health, I wondered if the issues I’d been suffering with for so long could be reversed. The painful monthly cycles, 3 operations for endometriosis, severe pain with my cycle was still there. I’d consume 2-3 packets of painkillers, have several days off work, and the use of a hot water bottle just to assist with sleep and to cope with the pain. My partner and I were attempting for a baby without any luck. Several miscarriages and no clear direction from the current medical system. I reached out to Dean and signed up for a 3 month program where I was guided through the process of detoxing my house, my thoughts and my life to then allow my body to cleanse and reset. Embracing the 7 principles of health and maintaining our weekly catch up accountability calls. My cycles eased to the extent there was no pain relief required. The inflammation was leaving my body! I was nurturing it and allowing it to heal and become stronger. I have maintained a healthy lifestyle which has enabled me to conceive and I now have my precious bubba, Peyton. I am forever grateful for the guidance, support, compassion and love I received from Dean. Thank you Shakara Grafton NSW
