e-Health, a new concept in
nutrition, was founded by Allan Wohrnitz. Allan has a BSc in
Mechanical Engineering from the University of Natal, Durban.
Allan has always had an interest in studying and the humanities,
and has pursued these interests as a part time activity until
now. With e-Health, he has been able to delve into the area of
health and nutrition, and bring about greater awareness to this
area, reviving information that has been available for decades,
but which has been gradually suppressed, and is now not
generally known to the man on the street.
How did you get involved in the
area of nutrition, seeing that you were trained as an Engineer?
My interest came about when my
son was ill (asthma and chest infections). It appeared that only
option open to us was to take him to the doctor each time. The
symptoms were being treated with drugs (expectorants,
antibiotics, nebulising). No logical answers were available as
to the true cause of the illnesses. This was when I started
researching and questioning to find the cause of illness and
what the workable natural remedies might be. I am not in favor
of drugs, and had to find an effective alternative.
Why did you opt for nutrition,
why not some other alternative practice?
Nutrition is defined as the
study of building and maintaining health and preventing illness.
Based on this definition, it was clear that a knowledge of
nutrition and its basics was the key to ones health and it
proved to be exactly the case. In applying the basics of
nutrition on my son, he no longer suffered the symptoms.
Indications of the illness were met with an immediate increase
in foods, vitamins and minerals to prevent the illness reaching
alarming levels. I applied my knowledge to my wife who suffered
a few migraines and regular arthritis. Both were resolved with
proper nutrition, not drugs. I mentioned these positive results
to friends and family, and every single one of them had an
ailment to be resolved. The research continued extensively,
along with suggested nutrition advice. I have experienced
success after success, with an abundance of testimonials sent in
by people who have improved their nutrition and thus their
health and well being.

e-Health was formed to make the
data known broadly. The suggested recommendations are
personalised, and the data published broadly to make others
aware that the handling for restoring health and recovery from
illness is through nutrition, not drugs. I have found that the
vast majority are not in favor of drugs. We know drugs are
harmful, being legal does not make them less lethal. Knowing
this, more and more people are seeking alternatives, not only to
improving health, but also for solutions to getting off drugs
and treating ailments naturally. I maintain a personal touch,
researching each case and making recommendations based on what
the situation is. I do follow ups to ensure that the person is
doing what he is supposed to and to assist if he is encountering
I believe you have written a
number of articles. How do you make these known to people?
With each topic
researched, I have written articles, based on the publics
needs. I have published these widely, so that others can receive
the benefits of the knowledge I have uncovered. Some of these
articles have been published in local newspapers, but I have
also made them available to many people via e-mail. All articles
written thus far are available on
in the Article section.
Any other services you provide?
What are you working on next?
I do talks on the subjects Ive
researched, and this is usually due to public demand. I am
currently researching cancer, one of the biggest misunderstood
subjects of the 21st century. Im collecting data from numerous
sources, and investigating the different natural remedies to
treat and cure cancer. I will be having talks on the basics of
cancer, remedies/ treatments and preventative nutrition. Dates
and venues will be advised in "Whats Happening".
Allan has been appointed as the
Natal agent for Sunshine Vitamins (a Johannesburg based company)
who manufacture a range of vitamins and minerals. This he does
to fund his activities, continue the research and to make the
data available at all times. Trade enquiries are welcome
