Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Mark, I’ve been researching alternative health and testing various diets, supplements, hormones and drugs for the past 15 years. After years of experimentation and applying evidence-based information I’ve come to realize that the mainstream view of health is wrong in just about every aspect.
Currently, I’ve published 3 books and am working on more as we speak.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Red Light Therapy: Miracle Medicine is my latest book and I decided to write it because my self-experimentation with red light therapy has been so powerful that I want to help others find the same healing.
Currently there are over 50,000 published studies on red light therapy and it has been proven effective for literally dozens of diseases and conditions. After writing the book, it’s clear to me that there are probably no diseases or conditions that cannot benefit from red light. Dr. Ray Peat has said that red light is “possibly the fundamental anti-stress factor for all organisms.”
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I’d say the place and way I position my body physically while writing is definitely unorthodox. From home I used to write using my treadmill desk and that was effective for a time, but then I injured my knee and had to think of a different way.
One of the best things I’ve ever done was cancel my internet at home and begin going to the library to do my writing. Armed with my daily ‘to do’ list, this has forced me to have specific purpose everytime I turn on the computer and as a result be far less distracted and far more productive than working from home.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Many authors and books have influenced me, but some of the more influential ones as far as health goes have been ‘Catching Fire: How cooking made us human’ by Richard Wrangham, ‘Fat and Cholesterol are GOOD for you’ by Uffe Ravnskov, ‘Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness’ by Broda Barnes, and a number of books and articles by Dr. Ray Peat.
What are you working on now?
Currently, I’m proofing my latest paperback called The Cancer Industry: Crimes, Conspiracy and the Death of my Mother. It’s time to find out once and for all if these so-called treatments are helping or harming. In short, if surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are increasing survival and quality of life of cancer patients, then we should keep using them. If they’re not, then it’s time we stop using them and find safe and effective treatments with which to replace them.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yes. If you’re thinking about writing and publishing your own book or series of books, don’t think too much, just tell yourself you’re going to do whatever’s necessary to make it happen.
Publishing your own books is one of the most satisfying and fulfilling endeavor that you’ll ever undergo. Also, the process is definitely not easy, but like I said it’s worth it – and once you’ve done it once the next time will be far easier. Feel free to contact me through my form on endalldisease.com if you’re stuck on the publishing process and I’ll give you my best advice.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never compare yourself to others: It’s what prevents people from doing amazing things. Instead, compare yourself only to who you were in the past. As Earl Nightingale once said, “There is no competition; all man needs to do to succeed is create.”
What are you reading now?
Currently I am preparing for a big lifestyle change. I want to grow food and live on my own homestead in abundance. Currently, I am reading a book called ‘The Lean Farm’ by Ben Hartman.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Generally I tend to take on far too many projects at once. As a writer, my next step is to format my next book called Cancer: The Metabolic Disease for kindle and paperback. Then comes the launch!
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
I’d bring ‘Introduction to Permaculture’ by Bill Mollison, my girlfriend and a bow an arrow. What more does a guy need? 🙂
