Born To Be Wild is an evolving approach to human health centred on how we move and eat, one that's more aligned with our innate Nature.
Creatures of Habit
We are fascinating beings with endless room for growth, which is only realised when we’re healthy in body and mind.
In discovering our full potential we must develop habits that enable us to see, think, and act clearly.
Move daily, eat natural, minimally processed foods, and make sleep your priority!
It’s all too easy to get distracted in a society built around instant gratification and consumption; Dopamine hits are cheap, cheerful, and readily available!
Highly palatable processed foods, the addictions of technology, and other readily available substances give us instant rewards with little to no effort, but often there’s negative consequences lurking.
There are no quick fixes! Use your time, energy and money wisely to invest in your long-term well being.
The consequences of the fast paced consumer culture we live in are clear for all to see.
We are, as a species, becoming physically and mentally sicker by the day!
Technology (when over used) is leaving us physically redundant, whilst also impairing our minds. It’s hampering our ability to get a restful nights sleep, and the addictions of social media are creating many mental health issues.
The foods we gorge ourselves on are becoming less nutritious – causing all kinds of aliments – whilst placing a huge strain on the planets resources, yet we still throw away one third of all foods produced globally whilst 800 million of our fellow humans struggle to feed themselves.
Is it a coincidence that as our collective health deteriorates, so does that of our beautiful planet? ?
Rediscovering Our Roots
Our redemption from the reality we find ourselves in lies in moving forward and rediscovering our intimate connection with nature.
Our physical and mental well being can be improved by spending more time in Nature, helping us realign with its cycles and rhythms.
Education in understanding that our individual health and that of the planet are mutual interdependent will be the greatest assets in us moving forward towards a brighter future.
We Are Nature
We, and everything encapsulated within the planets biosphere, are a giant super organism that relies upon the mutual interdependence of all living things.
We should treat ourselves, and everything on planet Earth, with the upper most respect, for we didn’t come into this world, we came out of it!
We Are The Solution!
I believe the solutions towards a more sustainable and realistically attainable future for us all will arise from we, the people. They can be simple, pragmatic and accessible for all – that’s why I curated Born To Be Wild.
I see it as a vehicle to help us guide each other towards moving, eating and sleeping more in accordance with our Nature, bringing with it long-lasting health, that will see us thrive rather than just survive on this extraordinary planet.
Hello my fellow humans, I’m David, and I am passionate about human health, and our role in nature and keepers of planet Earth.
As a qualified Personal Trainer for seven years, and Nutrition Coach for two, I’ve had the pleasure of helping hundred’s of people improve their well being through individual and group training.
I became a student and teacher of human health purely through my own health struggles. At the age of 18 I developed epilepsy, which had consequences for both my physical and mental health. Insomnia (my epilepsy is nocturnal in nature), anxiety and depression riddled my health. I found conventional medicine wasn’t the answer, so I turned to nature.
I sought a solution through a holistic approach that involves;
- Moving daily in ways I find invigorating
- Eating a diet based around whole natural unprocessed foods
- Developing good sleep hygiene
- Ancient practices and medicines (many now being studied and proven to work)
- The latest robust peer reviewed science
These became the corner stones of my life. My seizures have now ceased without the need for further modern medical intervention.
In my continual experimentation with new ideas I look to develop pragmatic solutions that are accessible to all. Something as simple as a 5 minute morning flow routine can bring a great return when consistently done, both physically and mentally.
I’m also a keen gardener, growing as much of my own fruits and vegetables as possible. The are numerous benefits, but above all the food is far more delicious and nutritious than anything you can buy at a supermarket.

I believe each of us has an unlimited potential to tap in to – All we need are the tools and techniques to unlock it. My mission is to help you on your path of discovery!
Yours in love and health,
