What is Body Language all About?

Body Language is a collection of the signs and symptoms the body is portraying. It's a sort of 'early warning system' that tells you something is wrong. 

It may seem something relatively trivial like 'Have you become sensitive to bright lights? but this is actually indicative of deficiency in Vitamin B2 which is essential for lots of really important functions in the body. To ignore the signs could affect your health, but if you understand the signs you can deal with the deficiency, simply, cheaply and quickly.

Aren't these just Old Wives' Tales?

Our bodies are constantly giving us clues about our health.  Many GPs and eminent, forward thinking people in medical diagnosis have known this for many years and use these kinds of signals on a daily basis to help with their diagnosis.

There’s nothing new about them, they have been used in medical diagnostics for many years. All we’ve done is to collect them together from various sources and introduce them to the public.  

We have looked into the reasoning behind these signs and symptoms and have come to appreciate how powerful they are. Most are obvious when you start to look into them. And many are fascinating in their own way, with their own 'but of course; why hasn't anyone ever realised that before' factor. All we've done is put the scientific facts behind the signs people have used intuitively for generations.

Who invented Body Language?

In terms of the philosophy, no-one really invented it, the signs and symptoms have always been there.  Jim Campbell and Dr Graham Cope came upon the idea of putting these signs and symptoms together, as an educational tool to teach people how to look after their health. In future we predict that healthcare will be much more about preventing disease and much less about treating the symptoms.

Why has no-one published this kind of advice before?

The subject area is well covered if you know what you’re looking for and actively seek it out.  Of course that is no good for most people outside the scientific community.  There has been a growing amount of information on this and related topics on the internet, but we feel this is still an emerging topic and needs greater exposure. 

When you’re working at the sharp end you tend to think everyone knows about it, so it is not surprising that these consultants have never made a song and dance about their methods. The most important thing is that we felt the need to let people know about the concept of Body Language.

Is a 'healthy diet' all we need then?

You might think that a ‘healthy diet’ is all that we need.   

Not so.

Scientific research has shown that meat, fruit and vegetables contain only a small fraction of the essential minerals that they contained 50 years ago (soil depletion). Each time we pick an apple from the tree, in effect we’ve removed minerals from the soil the tree grows in.

Farmers put nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus fertilisers on the soil to improve yield, but never replace the forty or so essential trace elements that have become depleted.

In fact, many experts now believe that we tend to overeat because foods don’t give us the trace minerals and vitamins we need. This causes a chronic condition of "hidden hunger" which overeating demineralised food fails to satisfy.

Many people ask their doctor ‘what can I do to prevent a recurrence of my problem’ simply to be told ‘eat a healthy diet’ which in the light of scientific research is clearly inadequate. But this is hardly surprising when nutrition hardly features at all in your doctor’s training.
