“Your inspiration with regards to combating the disease that threatened to take your life, is nothing short of amazing. I have referred to you on hundreds of occasions since meeting you and I’ve repeated your story and sent links of your interview to many, many people who benefitted from it.
Having learned that you have been recognised as The Most Inspirational Person by Holistic Magazine, made me beam with happiness that you’ve been rewarded in some way for your incredible feat of positivity and determination. The reward of life itself, coupled with appreciating all that it has to offer has to be the ultimate ‘prize’, but how wonderful that so many people have been touched by your experience. Congratulations to both you and your lovely wife, who I know will be your inspiration behind it all!”
With very best regards,
Amber-Lauren Ballantyne-Styles and Cherry-Ann Ballantyne

“…I would like to thank Johann Ilgenfritz for successfully creating an atmosphere of health, both for himself and others, and who serves as an inspiration to us all.”
Entrepreneur, Author, Motivational Speaker
“Because I am a medical translator (English to Japanese) and I have become health conscious as I grow old, I have always been looking for a health-related English radio program that I can listen to on my smart phone and PC anytime. And I found this radio station! Fantastic radio station! It is 24 hours radio station, so I can listen to anytime here in Japan. What I like most is “Listen on demand”. It is a good service that includes lots of previous valuable programs. One another thing that I like is that commentators in your program are all health specialists. So your program is very highly convincing. I will keep on listening to your program to improve my English comprehension skills AND, of course, to stay healthy. I will surely recommend this program to my friends.”
“I have now known Johann Ilgenfritz for several years, since the launch of UK Health Radio was just a glint in his eye.
I have always found him consistently calm and completely dependable, yet commercially passionate in his own quiet way. Personally, I have huge admiration for the way in which he has used his own experience of life-threatening illness as a source of inspiration rather than a taboo topic.
As a media owner, Johann is rare in that he remains open-minded about the output of UKHR rather than making his own personal opinions the basis of all editorial decision-making. UKHR is therefore a unique source of good information on health and well-being drawing on evidence-based attitudes rather than popular prejudice.”
“These days media information is just sound bites. It is so good to have UK Health Radio (and Johann) to delve deeply into topics important to us all. These are interviews I really enjoy. I hope more and more people tune in.”

I first met Johann early in 2015 at an event that our charity Yes to Life was hosting in partnership with the Alliance for Natural Health; the ANH had called Johann in to do a live broadcast of the day. It was immediately apparent that he has a deep personal interest in health and particularly in subjects that are dear to my heart such as patient choice, natural medicines, and integrative medicine.
Shortly after the event, I approached Johann about the possibility of airing a regular show for Yes to Life and was delighted with his enthusiastic response. Johann clearly ‘got’ the message of the charity right from the outset, he fully understands both the environment we are working in and the aims and thinking of the organisation, and he has been completely supportive of every step. Joining the UK Health Radio Team has been brilliant for us and Johann has been key to the synergy between the charity and UKHR.
“Working with Johann and UK Health Radio has been a positive experience from start to end. Not only are you in the hands of the fabulous Johann who is experienced, committed and dedicated (always with a really good sense of humour) but you also get exposure on a strong Europe-wide radio platform which just talks about health. From every angle possible. Both of those are quite hard to find. I consider myself lucky to be working with them.”
