AND IF YOU WANT THE WHOLE STORY...
It all began on a farm.
Edwin grew up in the Netherlands in beautiful lush green countryside on a big dairy, beef and vegetable farm just outside Amsterdam. As you can imagine, he has a very good handle on where our food comes from and how it comes about.
From a young age, he wanted to see something of the world and decided in 1996 to travel to Australia which he has been calling home ever since.
Then Edwin started questioning the status quo.
In 2002, Edwin had several profound experiences that became the catalysts to learn more about accessing profound states and how to use our minds. Edwin was very fortunate to study behavioural science with the co-founder of Neuro Linguistic Programming Classical and the New Code, Dr. John Grinder from the US.
Edwin studied some more.
Studying with Dr. John Grinder gave him incredible insight into how to manage and influence his emotions at will. He developed an incredible set of skills that he could start using to help others who wanted change in their lives.
Edwin also started to observe that what he ate and drunk had a significant effect on his mood, energy levels and concentration. So he decided to study at eCorrnel University with Dr. T Colin Campbell. Dr Campbell is specialist in plant based whole foods and the correlation between food intake and disease.
It was time for a fresh start.
During this time in his life, Edwin wanted to do a major cleanse to start fresh. He was particularly interested in water fasting and the healing power of water. After months of studying this subject and talking to different people, he decided to do a 40 day fast. Edwin drank water for 18 days, juice for 14 days and then water again. He gained incredible clarity and further insights into the healing power of water and cleansing the body. Edwin experienced some incredible changes in his body including old injuries healed, twitches gone, regular bowel movements and no more mucus!
And the hydration information quest began...
Edwin then set out on a quest to learn everything that he possibly could about the healing properties of water. He studied the work of professors, scientists, doctors, inventors, foresters, biologists, researchers and many more. And then Edwin came upon the work of a man called Clayton who for the past 40 years had lived with many different tribes from all over the world. Clayton had discovered a very important secret about water that Edwin learnt all about.
The AHA moment arrived.
But Edwin still had a burning question as to why there is so much confusion about how to achieve optimal health amongst scientists, doctors and health gurus. And then the answer became clear. Edwin's persistence and thousands upon thousands of hours of researching, scrutinising and testing had finally paid off. It was a massive AHA moment in Edwin's life and he believes it is the key to true health and well being. What he has learnt he wants to share with you. Edwin's wisdom is not the status quo and you will never hear it from your doctor, scientist, nutritionist, dietitian or from your health guru.
Now it's time to share with you what he's learnt!
Edwin can now see with absolute clarity how we can restore our confidence in how to be healthy. How to trust our senses and apply common sense in ways he could have never imagined. It is so simple, yet so profound.
Edwin is very confident that his mentoring and coaching program will not only improve your health, vitality and energy but will also bring more awareness, confidence and happiness into your life. He wants to show you how to be your own ‘guru’.
