About Dr Sandy
|You know how a lot of families today have a hard time dealing with kids that are overweight, sometimes even obese. Well I help families like that, by teaching Moms (and the occasional Dad), what it takes to correct the underlying bad body chemistry, which is packing on the pounds.|
One of my earliest family memories, involved me overhearing a conversation. In the conversation my Aunty described OUR family.
Everyone in the family was a 1, except Sandra (that’s me), I was a O.
1’s were tall and skinny and Os were very round and dumpy.
Life as an O
I spent my childhood living and feeling like an O.
The history of A BRAIN
I went to university to be a zoologist – somewhere along the way, I fell in love with chemistry, specifically biological chemistry and switched tracks, completing a BSc degree majoring in Chemistry and Microbiology in 1990, a BSc(Hons) in Pharmacology in 1991 and finally a PhD in Pharmacology in 1996.
A break down
Spoonful of Science
I founded, Spoonful of Science, an organization dedicated to provide a variety of customized resources for organizations and individuals seeking to maximize their performance through better body chemistry.
The information that we provide is :
- Scientifically sound
- In plain English, not scientificeese or marketeese
The Heffa-lump generation is one of our flagship programmes, primarily designed to help fight childhood obesity.
The stats are frightening, it is estimated that
- 22 million children under the age of 5 are obese
- 17 % of South African adolescents are overweight, 4.2 % are obese
But the problem is bigger than just fat kids, today’s children are anything but healthy and happy – they’re suffering from asthma, allergies, autism, ADHD etc. The situation reminds me of a practise carried out by the early miners.
The miners took a carnary in cage down into the mines. The reason, the little birds were more sensitive to changes in the air quality – if the bird dropped, the miners knew they would be next, if they didn’t get out of the area smartly.
The kids of the world are those canaries. Following the standard advice is not working……
If you want to help your little one, you have to get to the route of the problem. It has nothing to do with energy in or energy out. It cannot be fixed by eating less and exercising more.
If you’re RAISING A HEFFA-LUMP ………… there is a body chemistry problem, brought on by a combination of “BAD” genes, “BAD” neighbourhoods (environment) and “BAD” advice.
You can’t change your genes, but you can get better advice, which will help create BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY.
