A little bit about me:
Dr. Ron Ehrlich, or ‘Dr. Ron’ as he is affectionately known, is one of Australia’s leading holistic health practitioners, educators and a dentist.
Dr. Ron graduated from Sydney University in 1978 and is the founder of the Sydney Holistic Dental Centre in 1983. He has undertaken research at UNSW, written papers and articles, appeared on radio and TV, and is a contributing author in “Complimentary Therapies in Dentistry” (Nutrition Chapter).
He gained his fellowship in 1996 and is a board member of the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (ACNEM).He is currently Chairman of their Advocacy Committee.
He is board member & co-founder of Nourishing Australia, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to informing, educating and inspiring people about the critical importance of healthy soils, nutrient-dense foods and sustainable farming,bringing together principles of holistic healthcare and holistic farm management for the health of people, communities and ultimately, our planet.
For over 30 years he has explored the many connections between oral health and general health, and the affect of stress on wellness. He has presented his courses, workshops, keynotes and lectures to health practitioners and the public in the UK and Australia.
We are what we eat. It’s taken us 2 million years to get to where we are. Its taken us about 50 years to get into the current health mess we are in with heart disease still no.1 killer, cancer no.2, and auto-immune diseases, diabetes and obesity skyrocketing.
The lessons from the past, from communities that have enjoyed excellent health, free of degenerative diseases on traditional diets should inform our choices.
I believe a more primal/paleo approach is a great starting point form health and wellness.
