Welcome to our Survey

The UK population sits near the bottom of the leaderboard when it comes to obesity, type 2 diabetes and some other chronic diseases. The National Health Service (NHS), once regarded as the 'jewel in Britain's welfare crown', is in crisis. The Government still doesn't know if its appeal against the High Court's decision over the Parliament's role in triggering Article 50 will succeed. The EU is also in crisis over failing economies, migration and political instability, amongst other things. Crises however aren't all bad. They sometimes provide an opportunity for real change.

Just two things over which we have control affect our long-term health more profoundly than anything else: what and how we eat, and what choices we make in our lifestyles.

EU red tape has really got in the way of our ability to manage our health through natural means. Small businesses and practitioners who help hundreds of thousands of people each year to make better decisions about their health have been increasingly impacted by this red tape. It's killing innovation and ridding the market place of diversity that is essential not only to a flourishing economy, but also to our vitality and wellbeing.  

The questions in this survey are your chance to tell us about the things that are important to you. The things that we should include, or not include, when we're talking to people in Theresa May's Government, to Members of Parliament and to representatives of various political parties.

As members of one of the oldest democracies in the world, you need to be heard. We're looking forward to receiving your views and then working with you to make sure we all get heard.

This is not just about what happens this year or next, it's about things that will effect the rest of our lives, and future generations.

We have just 12 questions for you that won't take you more than a couple of minutes to answer. Please share this survey with others you know who also care about natural health and individual empowerment. This is the time for change.

Thanks for your cooperation.

In health, naturally...
