 Who among you believes you will suffer the indignity of
Failing health, Cancer, Diabetes, Stroke, Heart Attack or Cardiovascular disease?
 Anyone?

Am I a Luddite?

Has Medicine Become to Modern?
Could my appreciation for the cause and affect, for declining or failing health, and associated natural remedies have so colored my thinking that I failed to grasp the possibility that technology had turned me into a dinosaur?

A New Perspective

Who is Responsible
For Keeping You Healthy?
Sounds like an easy question, doesn’t it?  Hold on!
Before you answer, take a moment to describe your “happily ever after”.
