Are you struggling with just a few extra pounds that you can’t seem to lose? You’ve followed a fairly strict diet and workout daily. Why could this possibly be happening?
Well, those few extra pounds might be toxins! If your gut is burdened with extra pounds of toxic waste, you will have difficulty losing weight and keeping it off! Clean-eating and fitness are not the only things that go into the total weight-loss package! Your gut is one of the most important organs in your body when it comes to losing weight.
Have you completely removed all processed foods from your diet? This includes processed meats (most sausages), cereal, crisps, fizzy drinks, ice cream, french fries & chips, burger buns, pizza, pasta, most bread, and sweets! Processed foods aren’t natural. They are in fact loaded with chemicals and produced in a lab that has profit in their best interests! Junk food rewards our brains, not our bodies. The best thing you can feed your body is whole, fresh, green food. Ditch the fried chicken and tacos to-go!
Consuming processed foods at any amount can cause a gastrointestinal disruption which in turn leads to bloating, trouble losing weight, and insulin resistance. The long-term effects of processed food consumption can lead to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Why risk it?
The key is to have readily available whole foods at your fingertips. Snacking on processed foods is usually the result of not planning meals ahead of time, having convenient access to a vending machine, or eating out.
Head to your local health food store and pick up some organic strawberries, blueberries, bananas, or almonds. Plan your meals to be as raw and hearty as possible! Try adding dried dates to your dinner salad for a sweet addition that doesn’t wreak havoc on your body! The possibilities are endless! Don’t settle for processed foods. Settle for a happy, healthy life free of diseases due to poor diet. Achieve your weight-loss goals and say goodbye to processed foods today!
Your health coach,
– You can join the 5lb Detox Challenge Here –
Where you born before 1976?
…before you start any dramatic weight loss, you may want to watch my last video:
You’ll learn that fat has all kinds of unexpected disrupting effects on health, and also the surprising downside of rapid weight loss – the release of toxins.
What I don’t mention in the video is that those born before 1976 have 5x the amount of specific man-made toxins now no longer available (due to their proven poisonous nature), and when you lose weight you will release them into your blood stream.
This is why it’s so important to include plenty of protein, and toxin binders into a weight loss program…
…which is why I’ll be running a 5 day ‘5lb’ ‘toxin loss’ challenge from Jan 4th.
I’ll release more details closer to the time.
When you watch the video you may also be surprised to see just how big 5lbs of fat is.
Every fat cell creates inflammatory chemicals, and lowers your immunity
Loosing just 5lbs decreases all those risk factors.
While you wait for the 5lb ‘toxin loss’ challenge pick up a copy of my Beat Cravings Guide:
Some letters to my MP (Grant Shapps) about what I think is an appalling dereliction of duty by his governments medical advisors.

Poor nutrition killing covid19 patients and being ignored
My latest letter:
Hello Grant Shapps,
I’m still disappointed that the government is allowing covid deaths to continue, and is dragging its heels not just about VitaminD3 injections:
…But also NAC injections.
Hospitals already have both of these in supply, and are safe.
It would cost the government next to nothing and could be implemented tomorrow.
It makes no sense to let the deaths continue.
And I would really like to know what your position is on this.
Next up: Lockdown Science
You may already be aware that Sweden and Iceland did not lockdown, and have survived.
What you may not be aware of is this recent study showing the lockdowns only create problems, and solve none:
(Which is what the WHO have said).
So why is the UK ignoring the science and creating such calamity?
And finally – we should scrap the PCR test as it’s clearly part of the problem:
And the science report:
I look forward to your informed decisions and your reply when you have time.
Chris Pickard B.Sc
My previous letters…..
Hello Mr Shapps,
Do you know why the government and UK hospitals are not implementing these simple life saving steps?
It is possible that simply giving vitamin D3 injections could bring the death rate to zero, yet the evidence is being ignored.
In summary – vitamin D injections decreased ICU admission from 50% (with drugs) to only 2%. And decreased deaths to zero.
Ignoring this is costing lives.
It is cheap, easy, much safer than the drugs being used, and it has other benefits beyond saving the lives of covid patients.
We also know that covid deaths are related to low selenium, vitamin C, vitamin K, and zinc.
(I can provide you with references)
It is also likely B12 and magnesium deficiencies play a role to, and a small hospital trial in Singapore was able to decrease ICU admission simply by giving a vitamin pill.
The more the government’s health advisors and scientists ignore this, the more people will die.
You now know this, and I believe it is your job to help save lives.
The NHS has a track record of ignoring basic nutrition, and our health chief’s ignorance is complicit in thousands of deaths over the past decade.
You now have a choice Grant.
You can either start campaigning for simple life saving measures, or you can stand by and watch the continued unnecessary deaths.
Christopher A. Pickard B.Sc
Dear Mr Shapps,
I am alarmed once again by the lack of proper health advice your government’s advisors are giving about the treatment and prevention of covid 19.
Last week I shared with you the exciting findings that simply giving vitamin D injections to patients with coronavirus may reduce the death rate to zero:
It has now also been shown that a single ‘megadose’ of vitamin D can halve the death rate in the elderly:
This means that vitamin D is already proven to be better than the hopes we have for the vaccine, and it is safe, cheap, easy to administer and available now.
There is no downside to administering this treatment as we already know vitamin D deficiency is widespread and extremely concerning:
I would like to understand why your advisors have not suggested putting this simple measure into action.
Every day you delay it is costing lives.
Christopher Pickard B.Sc

And from Facebook:
If I had lost the life of a loved one due to Covid I would be furious if I discovered that the death rate could have been halved with one single dose of vitamin D3 if the so called ‘doctors and scientists in charge’ had acted.
And now we now that multiple vitamin D injections may prevent 100% of true covid deaths why are our hospitals still allowing this?
We don’t need another lockdown, we need medical doctors who understand health to the same degree they understand drugs and surgery.
According to WHO estimates, covid is no worse than the flu.
So why the continued lock down (which is increasing suicides, and cancer deaths) ?
We know that the covid death rate could be dramatically cut to 1/10th or LESS just by adding vitamin D3 to hospital drug treatment. So why aren’t hospitals doing it? And why is so much being spent on a vaccine that my not work?
We know that doctors and and other health care workers are ignorant of their own health needs, which is increasing the strain on the NHS.
We also know that the doctors and scientists advising the government are putting people’s lives at risk by ignoring the simple scientific facts. So why are we listening to them?
It is not covid we need to fear, but the ignorance of the people guiding us.

Hello Facebook Land. This is Chris Pickard at Body in Balance in Hertfordshire. Today I’m gonna be sharing with you a new form of magnesium.
I don’t know if it’s actually new to the world, whether it’s just a new understanding of a particular form of magnesium or whether it is actually something that’s been newly made in a lab.
But his thing magnesium is an element. We need it for our bodies. It has many, many, many uses. Magnesium is needed for energy production.
It’s also needed to help you relax as well. It’s needed for your brain to work properly. It’s needed to strengthen your bones. There is a huge list of reasons that magnesium is needed and low levels of magnesium. Can lead to cramps and spasms.
Low energy. It can lead to chronic fatigue. It can lead to pain. It can eat heart arrhythmia it can lead to vomiting.
There is just a huge list.
So magnesium is something we all need it’s essential for life. So what we need okay, is we need very often to get more interest because magnesium is used up when we’re under stress on also when we sweat lots as well.
So a lot of people who exercise and don’t have an amazing diet end up becoming magnesium deficient. They have sore neck muscles. They find it very hard to recover.
Now. Magnesium isn’t the only deficiency, okay, but it’s one of the most common thing because so many people are stressed as well, so you can get it obviously from foods. We should be getting a lot from foods. For instance, all green foods contain chlorophyll which has magnesium in it.
On the biggest difference between chlorophyll, which is green, and haemoglobin, which is red, is that haemoglobin has iron in it and chlorophyll has magnesium in it.
They’re probably some other differences as well. But that’s one of the big basic differences. So anything green is gonna have lots of magnesium in it so this is why I love things like dynamic greens because it’s not just got magnesium from chlorophyll, and it’s got lots of other things in it that make it much more absorbable.
That’s something you do need a magnesium supplement because they need more. They need lots of magnesium and those things, like magnesium citrate, magnesium malate, calcite, oxide. They will have slightly different uses, and some are much better at purging the bowels. So if you really blocked up, it can really help push things.
Through but generally all forms of magnesium at the higher days can actually cause your bowels to really loosen and sometimes a bit too much. It can be a problem as some people need huge huge dosages of magnesium, but they can’t absorb it properly.
So there’s a problem and people that you can do enemas too absorb it into the body as well. But there’s a new form. There’s a new kid on the block.
I can’t where is it, in fact, because I still can’t flip the camera. Okay, this month I’ve been on youtube and I’ve looked out to do it the little wand doesn’t appear. It’s now a different one from the wand videos, and there’s no there’s no write backwards that says magtein but it’s called magnesium l-threonate so writing backwards so bare with me magnesium l-threonate you can you possibly even see that magnesium?
Magnesium l-threonate can you read that? Yes. Magnesium l-threonate.
So this form of magnesium is really massively absorbable so it means that you can get a really good dose inside your body at a low level without it going through you but there’s something else that they found out about magnesium l-threonate it is also readily absorbed into the brain, which is fantastic, cause other forms of my needs aren’t but magnesium has put it in the brain, so it must get into the brain somehow.
But I think they were just looking at the supplemental form and to get extra magnesium in the brain. Magnesium l-threonate is fantastic. What does it do when it’s in the brain?
What? It helps the synapses is of your brain. The little connections between the nerves fire better and improve communication. Because magnesium has a really good relaxing a calming effect. It doesn’t make you tired but it just calms things down. It gives clarity and clearness.
Yeah, I’ve been using this now for not quite a month. Uh, on yet I think it really is actually helping. I am fired up a little bit more hard to believe. I know, but I’m fired up. There’s more.
There’s a bit more oomph to me, and I’ve also started taking you a bit more before bed to see if I have a deeper sleep. Well, I have a deep sleep anyway.
But I’m just seeing if there’s anything that’s going to make me want to go to sleep, because the problem is at night, I have loads of energy.
I have loads of energy all the time. Maybe I should. Magnesium can help calm you and it’s very absorbable into the brain helps calm down the brain, which can then help calm down neurons. I was speaking about explosive synchronicity synchronization in the brain.
Magnesium will help calm that down. We’ve got things like fibromyalgia, chronic pain very sensitive to pain. This is a good thing to start taking, so on that note let’s talk about something else.
Magnesium is also really, really, really needed to make your bones strong. So most people know about calcium. Okay, some people have heard about vitamin d3 if you can see that it is d3 vitamin d three with vitamin k two and vitamin d three. Help get calcium into your blood from your bowls.
Vitamin d3 also has massive anti-inflammatory properties off its own but then vitamin k 2 helps the calcium get into your bones. And when you take magnesium, vitamin d3 and k2 all together in the right amounts, it can have tremendous effects on arthritis.
So if you know somebody with arthritis tell about magnesium l-threonate and get them to have the right amount of d3 and k2 together this is why use these because three of these and 15 drops of this is a really good concoction for arthritis.
So thank you very much. If you know anyone that would like to have their brain fired up, then suggest magnesium l-threonate to them. Share this video if you know arthritis.
Share this video with them. Give us a call on 01707 662 704 if you like to come in and meet or book a consultation. If you have any questions, just write them down underneath the video okay. Thank you. And live young and prosper.

Video Updates November 2020
Thought on ‘90% Vaccine Effectiveness’
If the Government and the NHS told us this, would we even be looking at a vaccine?
Update as of September 2020:
The first trial on giving Vitamin D supplements to coronavirus patients in hospitals has just been completed in Spain.
The results where –
High dose Vitamin D supplementation reduced need for intensive care by 98% (compared to only 50% for current medical/drug care) and nobody given vitamin D died, while 7% of those using only current treatments did.
To be clear, both groups of people in hospital received the drugs, but those given D3 in addition did remarkably better.
It seems likely that vitamin D by itself is pretty effective (and safe).
If you add this to the earlier hospital trial in Singapore using low dose vitamin D, B12 and magnesium for just 5 days, AND all the other data looking and nutrient levels then it would strongly support the hypothesis that all we need to do to safely and dramatically decrease the threat of covid is take a good multivitamin and extra D3.
…and this is without having to improve diet or exercise – so it’s easy for everyone.
The dose of D3 given in the Spanish trial was the equivalent of 30,000 IU a day for 7 days, then about 7000IU per day after that. (This was for treatment of covid – see below for my thoughts on prevention)
A possible prevention strategy using the information above:
Vitamin D3 1000 IU
Vitamin B12 500mcg
And from the D3 study it would seem wise that upping the D dose to 5000IU per day could be preventative (which is what I usually recommend for everyone through winter to help stay healthy).
A couple of extra points…
Taking vitamin K2 with vitamin D helps prevent vitamin D toxicity, and also confers many other health benefits.
So, you would take just 2 of the 3 supplements at the Singapore levels (or close), such as:
And higher dose D3/K2
However, as many people are deficient in a range of vitamins and minerals known to be important for immune health, I prefer adding a multi to the above – OR just take a multi, and the high dose D3
If you , or someone you know has a health condition of any kind then I would suggest seeking advice from a nutritionist before taking any supplements.
If you know someone who has particular immune issues then they can learn more from me here:
Now back to the vaccine….
One thing I constantly worry about is ‘How long is this all going to take?’
And are we really going to have to sit and wait for a vaccine?
Here’s some facts I dug up about vaccines.
Good vaccines that have taken 20 to 30 years to develop and have gone through multiple upgrades still fail to create antibodies 2-10% of the time.
Vaccines against the flu fail between 40% to 90% of the time!
Vaccines made for previous coronaviruses failed between 25% and 86% of the time.
Maybe we will have better luck with C19?
Do we really want to wait 18 months though, only to fail?
Some good news though:
A study from China showed that patients who received both hospital medicine AND traditional herbs chosen specifically for them had a death rate 27x lower than those who just got medical care alone.
Many medical doctors in the USA are finding novel ways to treat the virus, including Dr Miriam Rahev in New York, and I really recommend taking the time to listen to this interview with her after you’ve finished reading this post, especially if you think there is nothing we can do if we get symptoms:
And a reminder about what the lockdown is about
C19 death rate amongst those with:
Now, are you ready for this?
Most of the population do not have a healthy lifestyle – ie they fail in at least one area of eating, exercise, stress, sleep or smoking.
So only 3-5% of the ‘General Population’ are actually fully health and immune optimised.
And amongst that group of people… the C19 death rate…. 0.00014%.
That means that the top 3-5% of the population are 1428 times more likely to survive.
This means that despite what the media has been spewing there are many health strategies you can start using today that will help your immune system (and REALLY save the NHS).
And this is without factoring for another major contributor to covid deaths – air pollution! (which you can protect yourself against)
So my mission at the moment is quite simple.
1) To work with people who have cardiovascular disease and diabetes to gain better control over their health, lower their mediation needs, and lower their risk.
2) To work with those in the ‘General Population’ that want to become part of the truly ‘Healthy Population’
3) Work with those in the Healthy Population ‘detox’ from air and other pollution and become even more robust and energetic.
Have a think about which of those 3 categories you may be in. I’m currently working with a select group right now, helping them walk through a Health Action Plan, and helping them apply some specific strategies for their situation.
If you would like an individual Health Action Plan to move you to a new, higher level of health and survival, then message me and I’ll let you know what to do next. (there is no cost or obligation)

Here’s the article (I’ll be adding in more info and references later)
High Blood Pressure Significantly Increases Your Risks With Covid-19 – This Is What You Need To Know NOW To Protect Yourself!
Millions of people in the UK and across the world have hypertension, a condition that, without proper management, can contribute to the risk of heart disease and stroke. We now also know that people with high blood pressure are also the most at risk from dyeing with coronavirus.
Dr Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist, recently disclosed on Sky news – “the people who are most vulnerable to severe complications from this virus have chronic metabolic disease”
So what is the link between high blood pressure and coronavirus death?
The immune system.
Dr Malhotra went on to say in the Sky News interview, “if you have high blood pressure, if you’re pre-diabetic or type two diabetic and you have a dysregulated immune system, your white cells are not functioning optimally.”
For a number of years scientists have suspected the immune system has a role in protecting us not just against bacteria and viruses, but also heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Then last year, researchers led by the University of Edinburgh discovered a particular cell that is part of the immune system, called the macrophage, was directly related to high blood pressure. They found that by altering the diet of mice, macrophage levels decreased, and blood pressure went up. When the scientists restored macrophage levels blood pressure normalised.
We need macrophages to fight bacteria and viruses.
So how do we raise macrophages in humans?
It has been known for a long time that just treating high blood pressure and heart disease with drugs is inadequate and diet improvement and the correct type of exercise is needed. There is a big problem though – doctors don’t have the time to learn or teach what is needed.
A truly heart healthy diet will include many of the nutrients we need to lower blood pressure and improve immune function, but today’s modern diet is very deficient in these vital nutrients.
The right amount and type of exercise is critical for immune function, but too much of the wrong type can cause problems which increase blood pressure.
Another big problem is environmental heavy metals. Various heavy metals like lead and arsenic have been indicated as causes of heart disease and high blood pressure, and are more common than most people realise. The problem is that many of these metals build up slowly from sources like water pollution, second hand smoke, car fumes, foods, and even medicines.
One more problem is air pollution. Air pollution disrupts the proper regulation of a chemical called nitric oxide in your lungs, then through your whole body. Nitric oxide is needed to keep your blood vessels to relaxed, your brain to function properly and is vital to fight bacteria and viruses. If nitric oxide production is not regulated properly it turns from something friendly, to something potentially deadly.
Drugs fail to offer a real solution because although they can lower blood pressure, they do not tackle the underlying dietary or exercise issues, and certainly not problems with macrophages, heavy metals or nitric oxide regulation. This is possibly why those with high blood pressure are at such risk with Covid-19.
While medicine is currently inadequate it is possible to make dramatic changes to your macrophages in as little as 10 days. Functional health specialist Chris Pickard B.Sc provides online training programs that take you through a step by step approach to restore nitric oxide regulation, lower heavy metals and improve macrophage health. It starts with a 10 day ‘blood pressure blitz’ – a dietary, nutritional and specific exercise approach designed to rapidly address the underlying causes of poor health.
“It is important that you stay on the medicine your doctor has prescribed through this process, and only lower it once your underlying conditions improve and your doctor says it’s safe to do so” Chris points out.
“I first became interested in natural approached to high blood pressure when my father’s diabetes became so bad his doctor was going to put him on insulin injections. This was despite being of normal weight, being moderately active and following the NHS guidelines on eating.
My father however, refuses to have injections (even at the dentists!) and was determined to improve. So he asked me what else he could try. Without going into detail I put him on an intense detox.
Within a few days his system started to improve. Within 2 weeks his blood sugar and blood pressure where normal, and within 3 weeks he took himself off his medication.
Since that time I have studied with and learned from top functional medical doctors around the world who specialise in fixing the true, underlying cases of chronic disease like high blood pressure and diabetes”
