  • Fuel Matters!

    Doctors are good at treating symptoms, but the cause of disease often remains a mystery.  So what are we, the attacked, to do about this?    Research tells us that we need to eat healthy and exercise.  This combination, along with a strong attitude (wanting to fight for our health), seems like a good prescription for success.  But what happens when we don't see..

    Balanced eating. It seems like a difficult concept to grasp, but it’s really not as hard as you may think. You really just have to get a few main concepts down.
