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.
