Prof. Dr Jürgen Vormann

Professor Doctor Jürgen Vormann who has been publishing papers on Magnesium since 1983. Publication list.

He is considered a leader in the field of Magnesium research. He has collaborated internationally in many studies to show how vital Magnesium is in general health. He has coined the term “The forgotten mineral” – because research has shown how vital magnesium is for health – yet because it is so plentiful in nature it has been forgotten in healthcare even when the data seems to be so strong and immutable.

Professor Jürgen studied Science of Nutrition at the University Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany, where he also earned his Doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology of Nutrition. He achieved the Habilitation for Biochemistry at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, University Clinics Benjamin Franklin, Free University Berlin, where he has the position of an extraordinary Professor.

His main work areas are:

  • biochemistry and pathophysiology of pharmacologically active food ingredients
  • acid-base-metabolism

Professor Vormann is head of the Institute for Prevention and Nutrition (IPEV) in Ismaning/Munich, Germany.

Peter Ochsenham N.D., D.B.M.

Peter’s early life was dedicated to the delivery of low invasive therapy to individuals for healthcare with his practice being booked out months in advance. He is trained in all facets of Natural Healthcare, including Nutrition, Herbal Medicine,  Body therapy including Myofascial release, Dry Needling, as well as NLP, Hypnosis and Breathwork. However, he would say his most important tool in practice was his whiteboard!

Peter’s mission is to provide a platform for “patients” to be given self-empowering options and messages for their healthcare. The healthcare practitioner is the “promise” for the future of every person they see – and the message they give holds the invitation to enhance the life,”power” and responsibility of the individual. Peter realizes this journey is unique to each individual and is as much about mindset, beliefs and empowerment as it is about physical activities.
