Steve McKoy – Founder of The Raw McKoy
At just 6 years of age, I lost my father to cancer when he was only 47 years old. This early experience highlighted to me how devastating the impact of ill health can be.
Some years later, I again experienced first-hand the impact of chronic illness when my mother was diagnosed with alzheimers disease, became blind from glaucoma, whilst also suffering from heart disease and diabetes.
As mum’s health deteriorated and I became her full-time carer, my curiosity around natural health grew and whilst I had qualified in the areas of Fitness Training, NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) and Life Coaching, I also became an avid ‘Health Explorer’, searching for genuine and reliable information on natural alternatives for chronic illnesses. This information will have undoubtedly contributed to extending the length and also quality of mum’s life.
Eight weeks after mum passed away one of my dearest friends was diagnosed with breast cancer and after being offered the only option of a mastectomy decided that she wanted to pursue an alternatively natural approach with my help. It was to take us both on an amazing journey of exploration and discovery and we were overjoyed when she was officially given the all clear thirteen months later.
During my ‘exploration’ I realised that as well as great information there is also some amazing work being carried out by highly qualified individuals in the world of natural health to address chronic illnesses, which many of us seem unaware of. So, I became extremely passionate about creating a space where this information could be shared, you could be empowered and at the same time provide options and support if ever you should need it.
