Abstract:

Paul Bennett was a fit, staunch young man with the world at his feet. He was a top New Zealand surfer. He was also a party animal with fringe gang association, who lived a life of hard-core drug and alcohol abuse. On the outside he may have given the impression he was a staunch, carefree Maori warrior, but on the inside he was sad, angry and empty, and that ended in 1999 when he was given two months to live. Through a course of events, Paul fought the conventional medical system that had given him no hope and he found natural therapies that had him on the slow road to recovery. With the healing of his body came the necessary (and sometimes painful) healing with his family, Maori heritage and the mainsteam system.
