A New Way to Good Health
I am a cyclist. For twenty years I was a professional involved in this beautiful sport. I won an Olympic silver medal and two world championship medals. I was the first Polish cyclist to turn professional. I competed in the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France many times. Throughout my career, I won around 200 races. Currently I organize the biggest cycling race in this part of Europe – the Tour de Pologne, as well as many other cycling events for amateurs and professionals.
While engaged in this competitive sport, I didn’t think too much about nutrition. Back then, not much was said about the impact of food on the performance of competitors and their health. After concluding my career, I began to have health problems – I put on weight, had arterial fibrillation, and in addition Meniere’s disease and Lyme’s disease. These illnesses proved very serious and though medication helped, it did not solve the essential problem.
In 2011, together with my wife Elżbieta, I decided to visit a clinic in Mexico, which provides the Gerson therapy, i.e. the treatment of cancer and chronic diseases through natural methods. The research carried out by Max Gerson, as well as the Italian oncologist Umberto Veronesi and the American biochemist Colin Campbell, has had a huge impact on our metabolism. For three weeks I purified my body using a vegan diet. The symptoms of my diseases disappeared after just the first week.
That was the beginning of a new lifestyle. My wife, who helped me maintain the diet, decided to expand her knowledge on the subject of healthy eating and completed postgraduate studies, specializing in nutrition. Together, as recommended, we maintained a strict diet for six months and then decided to stick with it. For several years now, we have been vegan. As a result I lost about 15 kilograms and went back to daily workouts, and my condition began to improve at an unprecedented pace. I regained not only my health, but also a joy of life and a degree of fitness that increases year by year.

Eko Folwark is located in a restored palace in Barnowo dating from 1786. This majestic building is situated in the grounds of the Slupia Valley Landscape Park. The palace is surrounded by beautiful forests and fields, where you can find peace, tranquillity and inner harmony. The nearby forests are home to various species of deer and wild boars, while buzzards, hawks and eagles soar in the air above. Within a radius of several kilometres extend fields with organically grown crops, which fit perfectly into the Eko Folwark landscape.
