Chasing Antelopes is about how we manage our lives - and our health - in the modern world in the face of strong institutions, including the medical profession and -big pharma-. And, it is also about the role played by academic research in our lives, and just how coherent and robust this research sometimes actually is.
The author, Robin J. Willcourt, is a leading anti-aging expert currently residing in Australia. He has had a long and illustrious career, in both the USA and Australia, as a medical doctor specializing in obstetrics and gynecology.
In Chasing Antelopes, to illustrate what is really going on and to explain -why all this caused all that-, the author explores current, relevant - and sometimes controversial - topics including evolution, the human genome, obesity, cholesterol, the Paleolithic diet, hormones, sex (between humans and between certain chimpanzees), the ice age, and global warming.
For example, current medical practice says that if you don’t sleep well, or if you have a low sex drive, or if you are feeling a little off color, you must be depressed and therefore need to take anti-depressants.
Frustrated at seeing mankind’s once vibrant curiosity and willingness to question potentially misguided thinking virtually stamped out, Robin J. Willcourt, in Chasing Antelopes, takes us on a journey - using fully documented sources and peer reviewed published academic research - that challenges our thinking and encourages us to adopt new strategies to better manage our own well-being.

Why All This Caused All That
About the book
At a critical point in his long and distinguished medical career, Dr Willcourt became alarmed at the increasing resistance of the medical profession to the new ideas, as the institutionalization of medical dogma - proclaimed by paid experts - took hold. As a result, medicine today barely escapes the definition of being a racket.
For many readers, Chasing Antelopes: Why All This Caused All That is going to be disarming. While the author does not try to be controversial for the sake of argument, he does want you
to see how we are being manipulated by the governments and industry giants to swallow the ‘opium pill’ and sink into a state of blunted unquestioning consciousness about so many
health and many other facets of our lives is, in fact, malignant rubbish.
For example, current medical practice says that if you don’t sleep well, if you have a low sex drive, or if you are feeling a little off color, then you must be depressed and so you need to
take anti-depressants, at the very least.
What a rubbish! The writing of Chasing Antelopes was driven by the author’s frustration at seeing the once vibrant curiosity and willingness to try out new ideas for disorders that didn’t
fit stock standard criteria become senile and fossilized and therefore ignored - or worse, actively stamped out.
Let’s begin this journey now together to search for ways to change the things that we can control, and to develop effective strategies for protecting ourselves from the ones we cannot.

About the authors
Doctor and leading Anti Aging expert Dr Robin Willcourt challenges the way we think about what we eat how we live and the path to destruction our modern diet and lifestyle is leading towards and the very real and serious threats to your health and well-being from events outside your current awareness. Robin Willcourt reveals the blatant lies and deception that Drug companies, eminent scientists and the Agriculture industry have used that have shaped our beliefs about the foods we eat and drugs we accept as normal. He challenges us to change our ways before it brings about a devastating decline physically and socially. This is an epic and groundbreaking journey into our rapidly receding past and and unanticipated and bleak future. In Chasing Antelopes, Dr Willcourt reveals how the last remnants of fewer than 1800 ancient hunter gatherers and the forgotten wisdom of our very distant ancestors offer an extraordinary window into how we can survive a coming catastrophe.
Drawing extensively on over 4 decades of experience as a Doctor in the frontline of health and working in cutting edge restorative health and anti aging medicine, Dr Willcourt explores how these rapidly vanishing tribal societies show us the path to superior health, performance and long-term survival as a species that is totally at odds with what we’ve been programmed to believe. He unearths remarkable findings - from the reason why modern afflictions like diabetes, obesity and heart disease are virtually unknown in tribal societies. Vast in scope and implications Chasing Antelopes provides you with a guide map to restore your health, vitality and sanity.
