About: Bernard Preston



Dr Bernard Preston DC has been in practice as a chiropractor for nearly forty years in both South Africa and the Netherlands, helping people from every walk of life from tiny children to folk in their nineties achieve better health.

Brought up in a family with a long heritage of striving for better health he is passionate about simple living and slow food, made fast. Growing organic vegetables, rearing chickens both for meat and eggs and keeping bees is all part of that fervent and oft frenzied lifestyle.

As a physics graduate he has built his own solar farm; harvesting rainwater is part of both his commitment to the planet and his family's health. Are we really sure chlorinated water is only toxic for bugs and not us too?


Author Bernard Preston has two bachelors degrees, one majoring in physics and chemistry, and the other in education. He also has a one year diploma qualifying him to teach physical science at the high school level.

Further, he has a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois.

BSc. University of Kwazulu Natal, 1970.

BEd. University of KZN, 1974.

DC. University of Health Sciences, Lombard, Ill, 1980.

Semi-retired, he still practises part-time.
