World of Wellness began back in 2016 when I rushed home from Indonesia to Australia to care for my 91 year old father who was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer to bone. It had spread to his pelvis, femur, spine, shoulders and skull. He wasn’t expected to see the year out.
Being a medical researcher for several years focusing on nutrition I scoured the literature for any nutritional information that would reduce his pain level and improve his quality of life.
I found there was a lot of confusing and conflicting information out there when all you want is a step-by-step plan on how to turn things around as quickly as possible.
There are upwards of 400 different approaches to curing cancer. Few of these are evidence-based and most have little credibility. But how would you know if you don’t understand the science.
Gradually the picture became clear as I dug deeper into a handful of the more credible protocols and deciphered how to apply them.
I decided to trial the Budwig Diet on my father. The prime cause of cancer is lack of oxygen in the cells. Johanna Budwig, a German scientist, author and lecturer who held a degree in pharmacology and doctorates in chemistry, physics and naturopathy, proved that electron-rich highly unsaturated Linolenic (Omega-3) and Linoleic (Omega-6) fatty acids―essential fatty acids―are the decisive fats required to attract oxygen into the cells. She enrolled over 600 cancer patients from 4 hospitals in Munster, Germany and fed them flaxseed oil (Omega 3 fatty acid) and quark (German cottage cheese). Within 3 months the patients began to improve in health and strength and their cancer tumors receded.
After 3 weeks of following the Budwig Diet my father’s PSA level (prostate specific antigen cancer marker) had dropped by over 65 %. His pain level was reduced from 8-9/10 down to 1-1.5/10 therefore he no longer required morphine-based pain killers or even a paracetamol. A universal side-effect of morphine-based pain killers is constipation. This meant my father no longer had to deal with that problem.
Together with highlights from other protocols and an overhaul of his diet I was able to turn his condition around. His health improved so much that he was able to resume driving and playing competitive bridge as well as continuing his responsibilities as the secretary of the local RSL sub-branch. His doctors and nurses were astounded at the rapid improvement in his health especially that he was completely pain-free even during a later episode of shingles.
I realized I had found the basis of a program that would help millions of people everywhere greatly reduce or eliminate pain and give them a much better quality of life regardless of their health condition.

I want to thank you because you saved my life. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The doctors gave me 3 months to live but because my son applied WOW advice for pancreatic cancer care I am alive and well today.
I regained my health and my blood results are normal. I feel great. THANK YOU WOW!Soteria T, South Australia
Sadly Soteria passed away in June 2018. She survived with good quality of life more than a year beyond the 12 weeks she was given by her oncologist.
Because I came from a family with no weight problems it was overwhelming when I picked up about 70 pounds. No matter what diet I tried, it just would not go away. In desperation I signed up with a weight loss clinic in Texas that used HCG and gave a guaranteed weight loss. Sadly, I lost nothing but hope and began to reconcile myself to being uncomfortably plump. Then my husband was sent to work in Indonesia for three months, so one day while surfing the net I found the Skinny World Diet Program. My husband encouraged me to meet with them and see what they had to offer. We were both impressed with the science of their weight loss program. In less than a month I dropped almost 30 pounds.
Weight loss alone is not the only thing that makes Skinny World special. The day-by-day counselling and encouragement was a major part of my success. It changed my life in so many ways. Let me encourage you to invest in your health because it will not only make you look and feel better, but you will have a brighter healthier future. They touched my life and made a difference.Sammie Ussery, Texas
I lost 18 lbs in 30 days. Thank you! I am so pleased with this diet. This is the easiest eating plan I have ever done. I reeeally love the clean eating and I am very happy with my weight loss and how my body has changed.
Thanks for always being here to answer my questions. Appreciate it.Julie B, Bali
I have managed HCG Diet clients since 2012. Initially I recommended another e-platform to my clients but it required a lot more of my time because it didn't have a way to share my client information with me. This made it difficult to follow their progress and manage their weight loss. Also the information about how to follow the diet wasn't totally accurate.
When I discovered Skinny-World.com - which has accurate information - it gave me easy access to my client data, educational material and a way to manage clients in real time. This improved client satisfaction and outcomes and enabled me to grow my business.
I highly recommend Skinny World to practitioners and clients doing the HCG Diet.Gail-Maree Miranda RN, HCG Diet Council USA Accredited Consultant, Sydney Australia - 0405720115
I was interested to lose weight for several reasons - my knees were hurting due to osteoarthritis, I had high cholesterol and high blood sugar for the past 10 years despite a mostly vegetarian diet, and a family history of diabetes.
I chosethe Skinny World Diet Program because I did not want a diet that starved me. I saw many friends who lost weight and gained it right back within a month of ending their diet, but the HCG Diet offered a permanent solution. Moreover, it is based on a doctor's finding plus Body Clinic was able to monitor my condition regularly.
As I went through the diet, I saw no hardship at all - my weight would drop 500g to 1kg every day and I felt satisfied with the meals which I prepared myself. By the end of the diet, I had lost 6.3kg and 10cm off my waist.
What I liked about Skinny World was they had a program of education about what made me gain weight, and what foods are bad for you. It is now 45 days after the diet and my cholesterol and blood sugar is normal, my knees don't hurt and my weight is still stable! Oh Yeah – and I look about 10 years younger.Suzy Darmawan, leading business influencer in Indonesia
I want to say a huge thank you for all your help and support whilst I was on the Skinny World Diet Program.
I was overweight and unhappy, now I feel like a new person! I could not have done it without you! To lose 20kg normally would just take too long, I knew the only way was to be strong for a short period of time, and it worked.
Even though I have completed the program, my mental outlook on food has changed forever. I am aware of what I eat and how it effects my body. Food is fuel, so if there is no nutritional value, I am almost disgusted at the thought of eating it.
I have maintained my weight and still weigh myself everyday. I truly feel like this program was the only thing that would have 'saved' me from my physical and mental sadness. I am now ready to be a happy and healthy mum and can't wait for this chapter of my life to start!
Thank you for your patience, genuine care and absolute professionalism – all along I knew you cared sooooo much, and not only about how I looked, but about the health of my body, and the happiness in my heart … I was a girl trapped by my fat, now I feel free and proud.
Thank you, thank you, thank you … my new life begins, all because of Skinny World and you!Carollynn D, Bali
I had a very positive experience when I undertook the Skinny World Diet Program by Julie Norton, a nutrition expert advisor from Australia and advisor for Ministry of Health of Indonesia.
I did the 43 days diet and got weight loss from 86.7 to 70.5 kg and now after I finished Phase 3 I am stable at 72.5 kg.
I did not feel hungry during my diet program due to the HCG (growth hormone cream) that stimulates the hypothalamus to release fat deposits.Alex Hermawanto, Indonesia
I was grossly overweight, pre-diabetic and had polycystic ovaries. No diet worked so I resorted to surgery – gastric banding – but it didn’t work either.
It wasn’t until I found the Skinny World Diet Program that I finally achieved normal healthy weight and blood sugar. Now that I’ve had the gastric band removed I no longer need to suck food through a straw.Sam J, Jakarta
I cannot believe how well this diet works. I lost 12 kg in 43 days (with a couple of cheats hee hum...) – last day weight was 79.6 kg. I’ve been very bad lately with my eating and drinking habits over Xmas and my weight is stuck on 79.6 kg!! AND my blood pressure is now permanently normal and people can’t get over how much younger I look. Thank you Skinny World.Trudie G, South African Embassy Executive, Jakarta
