This autobiography recounts de Vries' journey so far, beginning with his upbringing in Holland - during which he experienced the "hunger winter" of 1944 - and charting the development of his 40-year career, throughout which he earned a reputation as an enduring guru of alternative medicine. What is the secret of "the man with the x-ray eyes", who sees many things that others do not. Is this an extra sense, intuition, or just the experience of over 40 years of dealing with people medically? In almost 40 books written by him so far, de Vries has shared a great deal of his knowledge with the world, which he has gathered by himself via independent research, and through consultation with his teachers. However, in this book he reveals some of the secrets that people have always wanted to know, such as how he can consistently work over 90 hours per week and manage ten clinics throughout Britain. In this candid autobiography, he shares some of the gifts that were given to him and for which he is very thankful.
Jan de Vries was born in Holland in 1937 and moved to Scotland in 1970, where he set up one of many residential clinics. He lectures throughout the world, regularly contributes to BBC radio shows and is the author of numerous alternative medicine publications.
