About us

About us gives more information on those who review this site.

Bernard Preston is a retired chiropractor with a consuming passion for the environment and its influence on our own well-being. He endeavours to give you up to date information on many topics that relate to wellness of the planet and ourselves; they are intimately interrelated.

We try to give a human face to the stretch we are all taking to step up to a higher plane; in particular to those foods that promote health and prevent disease.

For fifteen years we have been working hard to provide you with comprehensive content that you can rely on from topics as diverse as what is today being called real bread, quite different to what you would purchase in the supermarket, to keeping bees and planting kale.

We have nearly 500 pages of content; we are now starting to build a panel of experts to vet that material.

It's a complex and changing world. Fifteen years ago butter and eggs were out, now both are back, in moderation.
