If you are in your middle years, or golden years, it’s really a prime time to be alive!

There is so much great support and information out there to help you be the best version of yourself.

There is a catch though….….

This bombardment of health info can also be confusing, frustrating, and possibly even dangerous.

With all the ‘noise’ out there, you may not get the clarity or the most effective steps that will quickly create the changes that you want.

That’s where Pete and I come in.

We have been chipping away at the coalface, seeing clients one-on-one for 20 years.

Whatever your circumstance is, whether you are 38, 99, or anywhere in between, there are 2 supplements that will help you live longer and feel younger.

Before I share with you what they are, I want to tell you a funny story.

It begins in a shoe store in Devonport.

I love shoe shops, but this particular day I am rudely jolted out of my happy trance by the disruptive energy of two women who appear by my side out of nowhere.

The older lady picks up a pair of shoes and says: ‘These are nice. I like them. Do you want to try them on?

”I turn around to be met by a grumpy look from the younger companion.

No” is the short answer.

I don’t blame her.

In a split second, I conclude that the shoe in question belong on the foot of a 60 plus, not a 16-year-old teenager.

The older lady must be delusional about the triple generation gap between her and the young girl.

“There is a shoe shop just around the corner?” the young girl suggests cautiously as she moves towards the shop exit.

“That shop is soo expensive” I hear her grandma sigh.

By now I have made up my mind that they are probably grandmother and granddaughter.

Before I can make any more deductions I hear the grandmothers’ voice rise to an ugly high pitch where it stays as the following accusations roll off her tongue: “You ungrateful little #$%&+!!!

You are just like your mum!

Always !! #$ %&!!@@!##**!!

The noise fades as she exits the shop clutching her wallet.

My hearing isn’t as good as it used to be, but I can easily fill in the blanks.

I slowly sit down with the three pairs that I have chosen to try on.

I am feeling distracted, musing over the ugly scene I had just witnessed.

This little episode was just a warm-up to the next leg of my shopping journey, the toyshop, where I had put $20 on a layby the week before on an item for the grandkids.

As soon as I step into the shop, I notice that my item is now on special.

Whereas it normally costs $300 it is now $200.

Trust me to buy it at the wrong time, I chide myself.

Oh well, what’s done is done, I just have to pay off the remaining $280 I still owe.

But hang on a minute, couldn’t I just forego my $20 lay-by and purchase today’s special for $200?

That is still a saving of $80.

I decide to spend the money that I just saved on a few Christmas items for the grandkids and get in early this year.

Armed with boxes and my lay-by docket I approach the ladies behind the counter.

“How can I help you?”, a middle-aged woman says with a smile, which fades when she hears my story.“

I want to forego my lay-by, buy the same item for $200 which is on special today, as well as pay for all these items,” I say as I make a sweeping gesture over the boxes of presents I have just plonked on the desk.

She eyes me warily and then tells me I can’t do that.

As always I am conscious of my Dutch accent so I start all over again slowly.

I explain in more detail how I paid $20 last week to lay by the same item which is now on special.

I show her the docket.

Then I explain that I still want the toy, just not the lay-by.

I will buy it today and take it home.

Simple as that.

I don’t have a hidden agenda and I am not worried about losing $20.

It makes no difference.

Every time I open my mouth I see her eyes glaze over and by the time I finish she is even more deeply confused.

All eyes in the shop are riveted on me to see how I will react.

The shoe is now on the other foot I am thinking ruefully.

It’s my turn to feel like a spectacle.

I open my mouth to explain my purchase one more time when a younger shop assistant jumps to our rescue.

After listening to her colleague she immediately grasps what I am about, settles the bill, and helps me carry the items to the car, keeping up a friendly banter the whole way.

All is well that ends well.

Unfortunately for the women in this story, there won’t be a happy ending unless they sort out their problems.

The grandma in the shoe shop needed a bottle of magnesium and a drink of water and the middle-aged shop assistant needed a bottle of zinc as well as a couple of liters of water.

From a nutrient point of view, all ‘dysfunctional’ behaviour stems from a malfunction on the cellular level.

What I witnessed in the shoe shop was a cry for Mineral – Magnesium.

All minerals perform important functions in our bodies, which we take completely for granted.

It is not until there is a blockage, deficiency, or malabsorption that we begin to experience painful symptoms.

These symptoms then become problems to be either ignored or analyzed, studied and pushed around by social workers or psychoanalysts.

This often involves a lot of money and time and yet all the while the role of minerals is overlooked.

At the end of the day your Doctor, Counselor, Psychologist or Psychiatrist can’t help you if he/she hasn’t been taught to recognize mineral deficiencies and the effects it has on the body, on your nervous system, and on your relationships.

How do you know if you are magnesium deficient?

A blood test won’t help you because only 1% of magnesium is in the blood.

The other 99% is in the bones, muscles, and tissues of the body.

The sad fact is that most of us are magnesium deficient.

Some experts believe that the average person is six months magnesium deficient!

This places us at higher risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.

Research shows that people with cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes usually have significantly lower body levels of magnesium.

Magnesium helps to relax the muscular walls of your arteries and keeps your heartbeat regular and even.

Ironically most high blood pressure medication which is meant to help you depletes your body of magnesium so you actually feel worse than you did before.

Magnesium deficiency makes you feel extremely stressed so you feel overwhelmed all the time.

Every minor annoyance turns into a major grievance, causing you to explode (or implode) placing a heavy burden on your nervous system.

Now you are trapped in a negative spiral.

The more stressed you feel the more magnesium deficient you become.

Have a look at the list of symptoms of magnesium deficiency to see if any of these symptoms ring a bell:

  • Irritability and agitation
  • Insomnia
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Poor attention span
  • Memory loss
  • Dizziness
  • Cramps, spasms, eye twitching
  • Weak muscles
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Back aches
  • Blood clots
  • Bruxism
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cold extremities
  • Constipation
  • Cravings for chocolate
  • Cystitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fibrositis
  • Headaches or migraines
  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney stones
  • Osteoporosis
  • Panic attacks
  • Accelerated aging
  • All over body tension
  • Bowel problems
  • Numbness of hands and feet
  • Osteoporosis
  • Post natal depression
  • Testosterone deficiency in men
  • Excess testosterone in women, leading to facial hair and scalp hair loss
  • Stroke
  • MS, Parkinson’s
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Heart disease
When you are stressed your adrenal glands go into overdrive and release adrenaline and cortisol into your bloodstream.

These hormones cause the loss of magnesium through your urine.

Magnesium is the circuit breaker that protects your Nervous System from blowing up.

Imagine if the grandma in the shoe store had taken a double dose of magnesium the day she went shopping with her teenage granddaughter (highly recommended).

She would have been chilled out like this: (grandma picks up an old-fashioned shoe)“Oh, look at this, I really like it! Why don’t you try it on?

”(Granddaughter) “NO!” (grumpy look)

(Grandma): “Oh, silly me, I forgot that you aren’t a little child anymore.

You have grown up so fast! (Gives her a fond smile).

Here is some money (gives her a hundred dollar note).

Go and look around by yourself while I sit across the road in the sun with a coffee.

Send me a message when you are finished! Love you!” (She can’t help embarrassing her granddaughter by blowing her a kiss as she walks out).


Now let’s move on to the lady in the toy shop who desperately needs zinc.

The mineral zinc is crucial for brain function.

We need it to be able to multi-task, to grasp abstract concepts, to be alert, to lift our mood and to keep our memory sharp.

But wait, there is more: it is also needed for language!

If my shop assistant is truly as zinc deficient as I suspect she is, no wonder she couldn’t follow my story which was explained in a strong Dutch accent while she felt pressured by dozens of other customers and probably hadn’t had a drink of water for days.

Even the hint of suspicion could be put down to low zinc levels.

I wonder if she also suffers from the following symptoms:

  • Allergies
  • Prone to frequent colds or infections
  • Abdominal pain, constipation, IBS
  • Hair loss (on scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes)
  • Low libido
  • Frequent yeast overgrowth
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Reading difficulties or dyslexia
  • Delusions, hallucinations, paranoia
  • Emotionally unstable
  • Pessimistic
  • Early greying of hair
  • Poor tooth enamel, cavities
  • Insomnia
  • Hypoglycaemia
  • Suicidal tendencies
  • Gluten intolerance
  • Craving for sweets and carbs
  • Age-related Macular Degeneration
  • Thin skin
  • White spots on nails
  • Bad breath or body odour
  • Easily offended
  • Prone to acne, eczema, or psoriasis
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Dislike of protein and meats
  • Poor sense of smell
  • Mood swings or temper outbursts
  • Anorexia /bulimia
  • Loss of appetite in the mornings
  • Autism
  • Learning problems
  • Memory loss
  • Sterility
  • Poor wound healing
  • Night blindness
  • ADHD
  • Apathy
  • Argumentative
  • More alert in the evening than morning
  • Poor ability to cope with stress
  • Sensitivity to bright light
  • Swollen glands

Apparently, 2 billion people on the planet are zinc deficient and that is a conservative estimate.

Blood tests are not accurate because the majority of zinc is stored inside the cells and is not free in the blood.

The best proof of zinc deficiency is the presence of some of the above-mentioned symptoms, followed by an improvement or disappearance after supplementation with zinc.

Again all zinc tablets are not equal.

Zinc picolinate is readily absorbed by the body and anecdotally gives the best results.

Vitamin A and D from in organic butter improve zinc absorption.

Is it worth supplementing with the humble zinc mineral?

Let’s see: zinc has ‘cured’ the common cold (sometimes within minutes) prevents mental stress and illness, improves dyslexia, is a potential cure for anorexia, bulimia, and Alzheimer, keeps your immune system in tip-top shape, keeps all the body fluids sterile, prevents autoimmune diseases, improves skin conditions and helps you multi-task!

In Australia the statistics on Zinc levels are particularly appalling: it is estimated that 90% of Australians are deficient in zinc and have toxic levels of copper.

If you have mercury fillings you need to be extra careful because one molecule of mercury blocks the action of 1000 zinc molecules.

Zinc is secreted into the intestinal fluid where it looks after your good bacteria.

High doses of zinc can correct many cases of wind, bloating and diarrhea.

Without adequate zinc, we don’t make enough stomach acid, and without enough stomach acid, you don’t absorb your zinc!

Low stomach acid levels open the door to parasites, which use up your zinc.

Taking Betaine HCL along with your zinc capsules as well as eating adequate amounts of meat gives your immune system a level of resilience you may never have experienced before. 

Dehydration, combined with magnesium and zinc deficiency causes your body to be in a chronic state of survival or ‘fight and flight’ which means that you become highly reactive and burn up excessive amounts of minerals.

What makes it even worse is that your digestion will be switched off while you are in ‘survival mode, so you won’t get the full benefits from the foods you eat.

The solution to this modern-day problem is found in a few diagnostic sessions at the Purple House.

You only need one session to find and dissolve the root cause, open up the energy pathways, boost your mineral levels and clear the blockages in mineral absorption and utilization.

The slate will be wiped squeaky clean from generations worth of mineral depletion, disrupted relationships, and destructive behaviours.

Peace, harmony, and hydration will be restored at the cell level.

If this sounds too good to be true it is time you experienced it for yourself!
