The Award Winning Author
The author is a trained Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who has been active in the field for almost thirty years. The BMS model was ingrain in him through the exemplary life of his paternal grandmother who lived for 115 years. Incredibly her only known visit to the hospital was in the months leading up to her death. She was never a participant in the vices of common living, always maintaining even to her death a BMI of 23 and She had an unyielding faith. My light bulb moment came in my biochemistry PhD class as I learnt how food was used. Throughout medical school, I tested my hypothesis on my peers. The BMS model was born and every experience solidified within me the belief that the recipe for a long active life is based on addressing the needs of the three components of the triune. Their nourishment, environment, and impacting factors.
