A Modern Day "Einstein" of Self-Care & Self-Education...
Don Tolman has been referred to as a modern day "Einstein".
When you experience his raw genius for the first time and the
brilliantly captivating way in which he delivers his profound
message, you'll see why.
Don will take you on a truly amazing journey of discovery by
introducing two major revolutions that are upon us - Self-Care and
Self-Education. The centrepiece of his powerful message is an
understanding as to how you can live a life free from disease by
embracing the 7 Principles of Health.
Don has worked with some of the world's most prestigious cancer
institutes throughout his journey. Called in by Doctors to provide
alternative perspectives to traditional treaments and therapy, he
has guided countless patients ‘written off’ by the medical system
back to full recovery.
Don is also an expert in creating applied pre-imagined curriculums
of accelerated learning where he teaches adults and children to
maximise their learning, creativity and achievement through
Known to thousands as a brilliant public speaker, Don has travelled
the globe delivering his unique and empowering presentations. He
has been a return guest on the Donahue Show, Entertainment
Tonight and ABC Talk Radio in the US and Mornings with
Kerri-Anne in Australia. TV talk show host, Phil Donahue, stated
upon Don appearing on his show, “Like what he says or not; it’s
people like Don Tolman who, in their own unique way, will impact
His revolutionary discoveries in the field of whole food nutrition
earned him the right to speak at some of the world's leading health
and technology organisations such as the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology (MIT), the Health Research Academy at Cornell
University in New York City and the prestigious Johns Hopkins
Hospital in Baltimore.
Don’s commitment to learning about health and the human body is
evidenced by the fact that he has completed a 40 day, water-only
fast, 3 times and has also inspired many others through this
incredible, ‘health-transforming’ experience.
In 2006, in Australia he jammed switchboards after appearing on
Channel 10 and in New Zealand a planned 5 minute TV interview
on The Good-Morning Show extended for 35 minutes, such was the
interest in what Don had to say.
Don is a distinguished communications facilitator and
vocabulary-enhancement trainer. He has studied in-depth, areas of
applied behavioral and cognitive science, as well as neurology,
semiotics, operant conditioning and Gestalt Theorem.
Through his experimentation with nutrition and extended fasting
and his experience in applying the 7 Principles of Health to many
terminally ill patients over many years, Don has also made it his
mission to inform people about how to de-mystify disease and live
a healthy life full of happiness and vitality.
In 2006, after 3 years in the making, Don released his much
awaited, 1,600 page, 2 volume, encyclopedia of wholefood
medicine, the Farmacist Desk Reference. Today, Don travels the
globe sharing the wisdom of Self-Care and Self-Education with
thousands of people through his events and programs.

We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be — which takes care of everything. Even if you don't have reason to be happy — make it up. Fantasize it. Make a decision that you're going to be happy one way or another — no matter what. "No matter what, I'm going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody; if I have to never watch television again; if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I'm going to be happy. If I never have to see that person's face again, I'm going to be happy. If I have to see that person's face, I'm going to find something to see in that person's face that makes me happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy."

Everyone Can Become Great
“It is within the power of every man to become great.” ~ Wallace D. Wattles from The Science of Being Great
Do you think you can become great? Coupla things on that: 1) EVERYONE can become great; and, 2) As per Ford, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
Too often we look at those we admire and think it must have been their destiny to achieve greatness. Something in their genes or astrological chart or just sheer luck.
Huh? That’s just a REALLY weak excuse for us failing to step up to our own greatness.
As Wattles says, ““It is within the power of every man to become great.”
And the great Paulo Coelho echoes that when he says, “I learned the most important lesson of my life: that the extraordinary is not the birthright of a chosen and privileged few, but of all people, even the humblest. That is my one certainty: we are all the manifestation of the divinity of God.”
YOU HAVE SEEDS OF GREATNESS IN YOU!
I hope you already know that and I hope you have enough strength to work on yourself till you manifest it and most fully give yourself to the world. Why? Well, we need it. But, more importantly, YOU need it! As Abraham Maslow states: “If you deliberately plan on being less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that you’ll be unhappy for the rest of your life.”
You might be thinking, “Oh, but me? I can’t possibly be great. You should have seen how I was raised.” Or, “Not for me. I’m in prison.” Or, “Me? blah blah blah blah boring story blah.”
Whatever. You only need to look at so many people like Oprah or Malcolm X or 50 Cent (OMG. Former thug drug dealer turned artist turned future billionaire simply rockin’ his greatness!) to anyone else you wanna pick who had way worse circumstances than you and turned it around.
Of course, the STATISTICS will tell you that you won’t do it. But who gives a *%$# about statistics? If one in a million make it, those are great odds. How many of you are there? Just do it. :)
So, I’ll pick up my megaphone one more time: “IT IS WITHIN YOUR POWER TO BECOME GREAT!!!”
*stops yelling and sets the megaphone down* :)
