So many authors stimulated my quest for better health, but it was Bill Sardi's work on the "over-mineralization" theory of aging that hit me like a thunderbolt.  

His thesis: "A Unifying Theory of Aging" (give it a google) explains how over-mineralizaton ties in with many theories of aging like: Free radical/oxidation, mitochondrial decay, calorie restriction (= iron restriction!), and break-down of autophagy in cells clogged with iron induced lipofuscin.  

My own health improved considerably (at age 57) after de-ironing my body through blood donation and I feel young again thanks to Bill Sardi's work.  


Bloodletting has historically been the most consistently popular medical therapy from before Christ walked the earth, to the dawn of the 20th Century and I now know why...  It works!

The sexes respond differently to iron; men need less of it, women need more of it.  It's important for a man to take a multiple which does not have iron.  Also, have your blood tested to make sure your iron level is not too high.

I am a real fan of Dr. Mark Hyman.  He pretty much follows the basic Paleo approach, with not a whole lot of red meat.  His writings are consistent, focused and prove to be smart.  My thinking is that there are a lot of lesser known good nutrition writers, like Mark Sisson (Paleo) and his group.  If you want the science, look at Hyman and Sisson.

No specific author has influenced my opinions about nutrients, but I respect anyone who is willing to do an accurate medical research about nutrients' effects, found on websites, like these:
- pubmed.org
- lpi.oregonstate.edu
- naturalstandard.com
- nutritiondata.self.com
- nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus

Dr. Joel Fuhrman: Eat to Live and Super Immunity. with support from Forks over Knifes and Engine 2 folks.

Changed our lives:  reversed our inflammation, safely lost 65/25 lbs. of weight over a year, great blood-work results.
It's a little hard because of cooking from scratch mostly...thankfully, I enjoy cooking. Not sure how you do this if you don't.
But we stick with it because the results speak for themselves. That keeps us motivated. Lots of great cookbooks out there and a world of new spices and flavors to enjoy.

Hi !
http://engine2diet.com/

Engine 2 is another plant based approach, developed by Firefighter "Rip Esselstyn was born in upstate New York, raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and educated at the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a three-time All-American swimmer. After graduation Rip spent a decade as one of the premier triathletes in the world. He then joined the Austin Fire Department where he introduced his passion for a whole-food, plant-based diet to Austin’s Engine 2 Firehouse in order to rescue a firefighting brother’s health. To document his success he wrote the national bestselling book, The Engine 2 Diet, which shows the irrefutable connection between a plant-based diet and good health."

They have a terrific cookbook and recipes on the website. Enjoy!

Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw. Their two books on Life Extension (supplements)

I went on to retrain as a clinical nutritionist (now 15 years) from being an accountant. 

Whilst training, Patrick Holford who was one of our tutors told us about a program/and subsequent paper he wrote on him setting up prisoners in a UK jail, getting a whole food diet and the subsequent positive changes in their behavior. I was mighty impressed that food could have such a profound effect.

How could I forget,  "The Miracle of Fasting" by Paul C. Bragg. Highly influential to me at the time I read it, even if I now concede the book does a terrible disservice to the subject it treats and Paul Bragg was overly fantastical in not only his claims but even basic facts about his own life. Water fasting beyond a day or two is downright harmful and dangerous, and one could lose a lot of health taking this book too seriously, but I'll give it credit to at least sparking an interest.
