- BSLM Director & Patient Voice
On Christmas Eve 2015, Nick’s life, and that of his family, changed forever. After 4 months of inexplicable symptoms he was diagnosed with aggressive prostrate cancer that had metastasised all over his skeleton. Whilst accepting the care from a wonderful palliative nurse team and the gold standard in conventional treatment, Nick decided that grim statistics and the explanation of broken hereditary genes for which there was no correction, was not for him. An engineer by training, Nick’s logic suggested to him that his irresponsible, indifferent and ignorant lifestyle approach had created a body that was in a state of dis-ease with itself. His thinking was that, if he worked hard enough on correcting his entire approach to life, then he would give his body the best chances to manage his condition. And so began a journey of leaving no stone unturned in researching and personal experimentation in conventional, complementary and lifestyle medicine.
