Jon has run his natural health practice in Whakatane for the last 12 years, after moving to Whakatane from Australia in 2002. He has been an active researcher and practitioner into natural health for 20 years.


Jon became interested in the fluoride issue in 2005 when he say figures that showed no difference in fluoridated areas compared to non-fluoridated areas in New Zealand. After much research he took the issue to council 4 years ago and has been actively trying to have fluoride removed from the Whakatane water since then.
