Hull University and Kings College Medical school where he disagreed with the teaching. Worked under Mr John Magnus FRCS for a year after passing 2nd LRCP., MRCS; qualified DOpt., top of the class with a cash prize spent on a Tonometer, the first Optometrist in the UK checking for glaucoma this way. Mentioned daylong on BBC Radio for discovering double the expected glaucoma, even in teenagers. The first Electronic Retinal Camera in the UK brought the discovery that retinal arteriolar reflex is disease and designed a simple cure. Qualified Yachtmaster, played squash rackets to age 75; four brilliant children; attacked & vilified by Medicine & UK General Optical Council for proclaiming heart disease cure & arterial disease reversibility. "Prof Erickson's latest nutrition book fills an obvious gap so that optometrists will have to be sharp now, to avoid having their patients know more than they do!
Enhanced by Dr Bush's contribution, this was a logical development from his discovery that heart health study, via the retina, using his CardioRetinometry is the future. His Life Extension protocol is so ground breaking that it is deserving of a Nobel Prize, in ridding the world of the greatest cause of death in the western hemisphere. What better way to start with the heart, build better vision and reduce 'death by heart attacks or crippling strokes'" Dr Kenneth Walker MD., PhD. Known World-Wide as medical Journalist Dr. W Gifford-Jones MD. "Dr Erickson includes in her book the most comprehensive coverage of nutrition for vision based upon a lifetime of clinical experience. I highly recommend it to Optometrists and lay people alike. You will not only find nutrition for eye and heart health, but for total health as well. She recommends four major plans to get yourself into the best condition, as well as specifics for most vision conditions. She includes research by numerous other doctors including Dr Sydney Bush, author of 700 Vitamin C Secrets. Erickson considers the eye and vision care, a first in a series of important health concerns." Dr Stuart Richer OD., PhD., FAAO.
