Jason Shon Bennett
Jason Shon Bennett is a self-cured health researcher, best-selling author and international keynote speaker whose trademark approachable, humorous and down to earth manner, has seen him lecture to doctors, health professionals, corporates, businesses, universities and the general public, on radio and TV, across New Zealand, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, the UK, Fiji, Australia and Canada.
Jason’s cutting-edge work specialises in longevity, fasting, plant-based wholefoods, weight loss, genetic expression, energy levels, and the transformation of the digestive, bowel and immune systems. Basically ‘how to live a long healthy life, free of drugs and disease’.
Jason was born sickly and two months premature to a mother suffering toxaemia. Throughout his life he suffered asthma, constipation, digestive upsets, bad skin, allergies, hay fever, weight gain and fatigue, alongside regular colds, flu, bugs and sickness. He was on Ventolin daily, regular steroid injections and Intal preventers for over 20 years. Told by his doctors that his illnesses were ‘incurable’, Jason decided to focus on rebuilding his health the natural way; through changing his diet, lifestyle and environment. Within five years of self-experimentation and change, he had cured himself. Jason has now been illness free and off all medication for almost 30 years. Jason is almost 50 years old, a very experienced father to four, and a doting grandfather to one!
Jason’s first book Eat less, Live Long became an instant hit, and has remained in the Top 5 selling Health books in Whitcoulls for over 18 months. His second book, My 20 GOLDEN Rules, is ranked as the # 1 Health/Wellbeing book and Jason as the # 1 New Zealand author in the ‘Whitcoulls Top 100 Reads of 2015/2016’.
