The response was incredible. Dozens of people described how they no longer needed drugs, some of which they had been taking for years or decades. Here is my ...

Were You Diagnosed with Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac Disease by a Doctor or Did You Figure It Out on Your Own?

Staying Focused on Thanks!

As we approach Thanksgiving, I encourage you to spend a little time each day reflecting on what you are thankful for.  It’s easy to get caught up in our life challenges and to start focusing on unfairness and negativity.  We often discount the positive and over analyze and give importance to the negative.  Even when struggling with life’s challenges, if ...
