More About the Author

After qualifying as a doctor in London and flirting with a career in surgery, I discovered my true calling was in nutrition and wellness. For more than 20 years my clinical practice has been geared to finding the true underlying causes of illness and symptoms, and giving individuals the tools they need to take control on their own health.

I have a particular interest in weight loss, and don't believe that success here is all about 'eating less and exercising more'. Actually, as I explain in Escape the Diet Trap, taking conventional approaches to weight loss doom most of us to failure.

When I'm writing or lecturing, I always strive to take an evidence-based approach, and refer liberally to published research. I like to bring in my clinical experience too (the approaches that work in the real world with real people). I do like to drop in some common sense for good measure too!

Should you read one of my books, please do share you experiences. You can do this by contacting me at or by leaving a review here at amazon.

My blog contains more than 1,250 articles and podcasts covering all aspects of health and wellness. You can find it at

Product Description

Amazon Review

Many foods available in the average supermarket are relatively high in fat, sugar and salt, but low in essential vitamins and minerals which help reduce the risk of cancers and heart disease.

What we need to do is ensure we are getting these important nutrients and a healthy diet will almost always form the backbone of any nutritional approach to achieving better health and combating illness, according to author Dr John Briffa.

There are, he believes, several advantageous reasons why the addition of natural supplements to compliment a healthy diet may be useful.

This factfile summarises the actions, uses and cautions of different vitamin supplements and offers advice as to when they should be used and why.

The book is intended as a guide to the natural approaches and supplements that may benefit a number of conditions.

It is organised into chapters that look at everyday health, skin and eyes, the immune system and a section on women's health and pregnancy. Each of these chapters provide useful information on the factors which are thought to underlie a particular condition, as well as dietary changes and supplements that may help prevent or improve it.

This is a very useful guide into choosing the right foods and supplements which could in the long run ensure a healthier, longer life. The book does advise the reader to seek professional guidance for some of the conditions mentioned. --Louise Coyle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
