KENNETH PRANGE SAVED MY LIFE
One of the most kind and genuine people I have ever met, Kenneth Prange embodies the wisdom of an ancient seer with the humility of a zen monk. I have been extremely fortunate to have received guidance from Ken as well the honour to taste his cooking which is infused with years of wisdom, love and passion. Both experiences which have changed my life for good.
THE FRUSTRATIONS OF ADULT ACNE
I had been struggling with adult acne for about 10 years, and things were rapidly coming to a head. Literally. The condition of my skin was unbearable. Trying everything, I had searched high and low for a natural cure, I tested every allergy I could think of, studied Ayurveda and even traveled to India for special Ayurvedic treatments. I scoured the internet for answers only to find that acne is a mystery to most and the others only have theoretical explanations. No one really knows what causes acne, or what cures it.
I finally resolved to taking prescribed antibiotics, prescribed by a dermatologist. This helped temporarily but caused tremendous stomach bloat and sensitivity to the sun.. and then the acne came back, worse than before. I was back at square one.
Desperate, for answers I visited a skin specialist advertised as an ‘all natural’ clinic, who only ended up warning me that my skin was beyond repair and untreatable. Her advice was that I listen to dermatologists and take ‘isotretinoin’, an extremely powerful medication with a long list of side effects including liver damage, night blindness, nose bleeds, nervous system failure and birth defects (if I were a pregnant female). It works by basically turning all of my healthy ‘over producing’ oil glands into shriveled up raisins… I was convinced I could never show my face in public for the rest of my adult life.
Defeated and frightened, I decided to have the liver tests done, necessary to qualify for this controversial medication and I was nearly ready to pick up my prescription. I felt I had no other choice.
A GLIMMER OF HOPE IN MY MOMENT OF DESPAIR
Luckily, while visiting a friend’s restaurant for lunch, I was introduced to Kenneth Prange. It was a rare opportunity and he was visiting Gothenburg for a few days to see clients privately, but was fully booked. Due to a slight miracle in the form of a last minute cancellation, I was able to see him for a private consultation that evening.
My meeting with Ken lasted about an hour. We discussed my overall health. He calmly examined my eyes, face, hands, nails, took my pulse and looked at my tongue as he pieced together the puzzle of my current condition. I felt as if he saw me completely and totally. As he discussed my diagnosis, he seemed to know me inside and out. He told me I could heal my skin and that I would also start to feel a lot better overall, by following his recommendations. He said to be patient and committed. It would take 11 months.
I brought Ken’s detailed instructions and recipe sheets home and that was it. The very next day, my wife and I were all in, 100%. We bought a pressure cooker and got right to it. Lucky for me, my wife not only loves to cook healthy natural food, but is really good at it!
GREENS, BEANS AND RICE .. OH MY!
My acne medicine was plant based and delicious .. with no side effects!
We cut out all meat, dairy, sugar and processed foods… and began eating all of the foods on Ken’s Macrobiotic Lifestyle worksheets. We both started feeling better immediately.
The first thing we noticed is that we felt deeply hydrated, satiated and calm. Although my acne was still pretty bad, I was patient and hopeful. I understood it would take some time and I could feel my body healing.
After about a week, my wife and I both began to drop weight. We were losing about 2 kg a week! My wife describes her experience as ‘losing a sheath of inflammation’ throughout her entire body and felt the best she had ever felt.
I got to the point where people began telling me to stop losing and that I was too skinny. Starting to get scared, I wasn’t sure if I would ever stop losing.. but Ken assured me I was getting all of the nutrition I needed and I would stop dropping weight once my body stabilized and was where it wanted to be. And it did!
Finally, after about 6 months.. my skin was clearing up. It was working!!
THE MIRACLE OF MACRO
I have just had my 11 month follow up with Ken.. and I don’t know what was in my body causing my adult acne.. scary to think about it.. but I can safely say it is gone. My acne was showing me that there was something going on inside of me and I needed to make a change.
I have clear skin, I have lost 20 kg, (my wife has lost 15 kg) I feel full of energy and excitement about life. I also now realize that I haven’t been feeling good in my body for years!
We are now Macrobiotic converts for life.
Kenneth Prange holds the key to taking your health back, and balancing the body back to perfect health. You must be willing to do the work and have the deep desire to thrive and be alive.. but embarking on the journey with Ken as your guardian, you may just save your life and perhaps those dearest to you as well.
