Welcome to The Wholistic Research Company's
Health Information Pages. Our mission is to give you real
information written by Health Professionals who are working
with real patients every day. They have great amounts of experience
and they want to share it. They feel the same way I do, which
is that despite a big booming interest in alternative and
complementary medicine, most of our patients and clients do
not understand the differences in the ways that their Doctor
and their other practitioner(s) think and make decisions.
This usually means that they know very little about the choices
that they themselves might make in determining their own future
health and ways that they can create a better future for themselves
and the people they care about. Since very few Health Professionals
really practice and teach Health Promotion and Prevention
as part of a way of thinking about life, the result is lots
This confusion is stirred up by the marketing
of many health products. Marketing information does not often
clear the confusion in the mind of someone who is genuinely
concerned about their own and their family's future health.
Yet more confusion is introduced by the marketing of many
products and techniques that are not really aimed at health
at all, but at beauty and image.
We believe that the solution to all this confusion
is reliable information from people like us who have qualified
to know what we are talking about [by doing it successfully
for many years] and who do not have a hidden marketing agenda.
Most of the material on our Information Site has been written
by friends and work colleagues who I have known for up to
20 years. They are not journalists and they have not been
paid to write. The rest comes from similarly qualified and
experienced practitioners of Health Care who also want to
put their special knowledge into the public domain.
In this way I hope that it will not be possible
for the truth to get in the way of a good story, and that
you can find help, interest and inspiration in these pages.
We believe that this site is unique. Most health sites that
I visit are actually vehicles for marketing nutritional supplements
and we are definitely not that. If you smell anything on our
pages that sounds like marketing information to you then please
let me know immediately.
Finally, a word about our sponsor, The Wholistic
Research Company. Since 1981 the WRC has been providing objective, unbiased, straight information about health equipment and
non-consumable products. They are very respected for this
in their field and they sell a range of really good value
and best-quality products. The Company's purpose in sponsoring
these Information Pages is related to their goal of conversion
from a garage-based mail-order business to a 21st century
socially conscious institution. Being also able to provide
the same quality of information about health care and healthy
lifestyle, straight from the horse's mouth so to speak, is
part of that transformation. However, and this is important
in your quest for real information, WRC does not exercise
control over the content of the Information Site. That is
up to me. There are a few links to their trading pages within
these information pages, in case you do find yourself wanting
to know more about a particular product or book, but they
are not intrusive.
