    Will Spencer

    Wil Spencer is a Researcher, Farmer, Author, Consultant, Naturopath and Vibrational Medical Science Practitioner, licensed by the Pastoral Medical Association. He has worked with people to resolve their health issues for over twenty years. Dr. Wil has a continuing, deep rooted relationship with farming and animal husbandry as well agro-business, bee keeping, soil, air and water purity.

    In practice it became quite obvious, early on, that the problems with life on the planet are, at the core, the same problems with all of life. Life Force flows through everything living. Life Force carries the information that provides every living thing with the innate knowing of how to be healthy, how to recover from adversity and how to sustain vibrant health. The question then becomes, if the information to know how to be healthy is innately embedded, why is life declining?

    The answer is simply that life forms no longer have access to the raw materials , the microbial balance or the environment, necessary for vibrant health. Thus the information is unexpressed, skewed or incomplete. Life Force is energy, or frequency. Frequency is information and it is only information. For the information to manifest into a living system and produce quality nutrient dense food, the necessary elements need to be made available to be properly utilized.

    We can now test and correct the information and then input the required elements to sustain a living system to produce naturally.
