We are about you ...
You care about your health and want the best products to help you and your family attain and maintain good health, vitality and well-being in our health-challenging modern world. You may feel confused by all the conflicting information regarding which are the best products to use. You want a well-established, trustworthy, approachable company with long-term experience that you can rely on to offer only those products that are effective and will serve you best without wasting your hard-earned money. You don't want that company to just take your money and avoid its after sales responsibilities, or to disappear overnight leaving you without after sales care and support. We are dedicated to being the kind of company that we ourselves would wish to deal with - one that offers value on reliable products, personalised advice to help you choose what's best for your requirements, and considerate, responsible after sales care and support.
If you should ever require a repair (whether during or after the warranty period), we aim to make it as easy as possible for you - we won't make you jump through lots of hoops. For non-warranty repairs we do our best to keep your costs as low as possible. For instance, our engineer's labour is charged in blocks of only 15 minutes, not full hours, so you will only be charged for the actual time it takes to repair your equipment. You might be surprised how little it costs to keep your expensive juicer or distiller working for you for many years, or even decades. Certainly we might make more money out of you if we encouraged you to throw the old one away and just buy a new one, but we'd rather help if possible, and not contribute to our throw away society.
Wholistic was established over 30 years ago to promote a whole body-approach to a healthy lifestyle based on a blend of nature and genuine science (not pseudo-science). The wide range of health products we provide help you to make healthy eating and drinking choices with fresh living foods and juices, to purify your drinking water and the air you breathe, to keep your internal body clean and detoxified, to protect you from ElectroMagnetic Radiation and other negative energy, to make exercise truly effective and fun, and to treat various health conditions in a natural way. We think you'll see and feel the difference in your improved energy levels, your strength, your boosted immunity and how much better you look.
We have sourced a unique collection of health products of the highest quality and integrity from around the world. Wholistic was the very first company to introduce the world-famous Champion Juicer to the U.K. Its build-quality, power and durability are a shining example of the standard of products we prefer to sell. We have chosen only those products that we are happy to use ourselves. We also provide a number of helpful educational books, charts and DVDs from some of the leading pioneers and experts in their fields to help guide and inspire you.
We want you to feel secure when buying any of our products that each one represents what we feel is the 'cream of the crop' within its price range, and has our personal recommendation. Our PRICE PROMISE (details in terms and conditions) ensures that you will pay the lowest price or we will refund the difference, even a month after you have purchased from us.
As a well-established company you can feel confident that we will still be here to take care of your after sales needs long after you buy from us. We provide spare parts and servicing to help ensure the equipment you buy from us will serve you well for many years. Many of the juicers, rebounders and water distillers we sold in the 1980's are still in use today.
Founded in 1981 Wholistic Research Company has its roots in the study of natural science, iridology, herbalism, polarity therapy, yoga, natural food for optimum health and other allied subjects. The products have sprung from the personal lives of all those at Wholistic. We all use in our own lives items from all the product categories offered here. They all have our personal recommendation. They all help towards the problems of living successfully and maintaining good health within our modern, polluted world.
Here you will find products and books that tackle how we can deal effectively with water pollution, the vital nourishment we need to help prevent and fight disease, internal cleansing, modern exercise, subtle energies and the biological effects of TV's, computers, mobile phones, Wifi and electricity power lines. This wide range of healthy lifestyle products suggests a pattern of living that will bring science and nature into harmony.
The word wholistic, also spelt 'holistic', conveys the idea that the whole is greater than just the sum of its parts. In health, it means considering the 'whole' person - their lifestyle, habits, constitution, physical and emotional stengths and weaknesses and their environment. The wholistic-minded therapist, practitioner or person therefore considers the whole person, when giving treatment, advice and help. The derivations of 'wholism' and 'holism' are of interest. It seems likely that the word 'holism' was first coined early in this century, having as its root the Greek 'holos' meaning 'whole'. The word 'whole' comes from the old English 'hal', first acquiring a 'wh' in the fifteenth century, and being the same root for 'hale' and 'health'. 'Wholism' was a later variant of 'holism', which gave it a parallel derivation and, in fact, a mildly different flavour of meaning. 'Wholism', is actually 'holism' as applied to health.
We have only ourselves. Whatever we may consider that self to be, it definitely has body and mind wrapped up in it somewhere or somehow. And if that body is not healthy, it is more difficult to be happy and to feel fulfilled. If we spend so much on television sets, cars, washing machines, refrigerators and the like, in order to make the running of our lives smoother and more pleasant, then we definitely owe it to ourselves to look after ourselves as well as possible, to give ourselves a better life. In addition, we also have to deal, in some way or another, with the many aspects of environmental pollution and psychological stress engendered by our modern way of life. However, as a friend once commented 'Most people would rather die, than spend £5 a week on their health'. With the current upsurge of interest in Natural Health and the increasing individual desire to take responsibility for one's health and well-being, we hope he is not correct!
FIVE HOUSE FARM
Wholistic Research Company was originally based near Cambridge in the UK. It is now situated in the rolling countryside of North East Hertfordshire just South of Cambridgeshire. Our premises were converted for us from redundant dairy buildings at Five House Farm. The dairy cattle are long gone now, but there are herds of fallow deer in the local area which we often see when walking the green lanes behind our office. We feel very fortunate to be situated in such a lovely setting so close to nature.
Our planet needs care and love if it is to survive as a reasonable place in which to live. And we too need to love and care for ourselves and one another if we are to be genuinely happy. As well as treating our customers with kindness and respect, we aim to be a green and ethical company. In keeping with our mission to help clean up the planet our stationery is made of 100% recycled paper, most of our own records are printed on the back of scrap paper, clean waste paper is shredded and used for internal packaging, and we use recycled boxes and packing materials where possible, including second-hand materials that come into our warehouse. As well as healthy lifestyle products we offer some green and humane items. We do our best to offer best quality and value to our customers.
CANCER - Far too many people have been diagnosed with this dreaded condition. A recent study of ancient Egyptian and Neanderthal remains showed that cancer was almost non-existent in ancient times. In 1900 (well after the Industrial Revolution) about 1 in 80 people used to develop cancer, but by the year 2000 that number had increased to around 1 in 4! As cancer seems to be one of the main indicators of how our modern way of living is damaging our health, Wholistic is involved with a number of cancer charities and organisations who are trying to help reverse this trend, and it makes donations to them every month. If you or someone you know has cancer, and would like to find or study some complementary and alternative treatment options other than relying solely on standard medical practices, please have a look at our links page (click on the word "links" on the green bar above). We encourage everyone to educate themselves so they can make the best choices to protect their health and improve their outcome.
Origins of the Wholistic Research Company
In 1984, he finally relinquished his University commitments in order to devote more time to developing the Wholistic Research Company and to writing. Since 1987, he has completed more than a dozen books, including a series of six, demonstrating the compatibility of science and mysticism.
In 2000 John retired and moved to Worcestershire with his wife Lucie. He has continued writing and in recent years he has developed a website www.self-helpcancer.org to provide clear and unbiased information on complementary and alternative cancer treatments that are supported by positive and independent research data. It is a privately funded website with no commercial ties, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for intelligent information on dietary, herbal, mineral, chemical, therapeutic and proprietary product options for treating cancer, and also for links to more cancer help sites.
