June General Meeting
GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN
Sir Jonn Desnoes, OMD, MD, PhD, this month’s speaker, is a 32nd Degree Master Mason, philosopher, physician, author, visionary, and former nationally-syndicated radio talk show host. He specializes in Anti-aging, Sports, and Complimentary/Functional (read, not-generally-accepted) Medicine.
Professionally, Jonn has training and degrees in Western Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Psychology, Homeopathy, and Clinical Nutrition.
Sir Jonn was knighted for his medical missionary work saving malnourished children in the West Indies. He served as a consultant on malnutrition in the Third World for the State Department of the United States (USAID) and the Government of Jamaica.
As a broadcaster, he hosted a nationally-syndicated radio talk show for 18 years. He has also served as a health and fitness consultant for national television and news programs and as an on air commentator for the ESPN Sports Network.
As a writer he has had numerous articles published in medical journals as well as popular health, and fitness magazines. His Doctoral dissertation on “Malnutrition in the Third World” was used as a reference text in Medical Schools in the West Indies and Africa.
As a physician, Sir Jonn has performed extensive research on the anti-aging and sports applications of Peptides, natural treatment of Syndrome-X obesity, exercise physiology, psychology, homeopathy, nutrition, Chinese herbal medicine and mold-related illnesses. His pioneering research on the use of amino acids for enhancing athletic performance and his magazine articles on the use of amino acids and other natural substances as steroid alternatives popularized their use by athletes and as a result of this work, he is credited with giving birth to the current multi-billion dollar sports supplement market.
Sir Jonn travels extensively lecturing on Peptides and Anti-Ageing Medicine. His exclusive practice includes professional athletes, show business personalities and celebrities, multi-national corporations, and sports teams.
Jonn is a truly fascinating and thought-provoking speaker with a wealth of information, inspiration, and international experience. This one is a “DON’T MISS.”
