True 'HEALTH CARE' is a working combination of body, mind and spirit. When a patient makes every effort to enhance all three, they will thrive. Time and health are the two greatest commodities God gives you, and neither should be taken for granted. Empirical evidence and wisdom suggests that when one 'follows the rules, no one gets hurt.' For the most part, to flourish, a human needs four things; Clean, filtered H2O, organic, whole, nutrient dense foods, sunlight, and vigorous activity. Blood flow equals healing, always.
Healing and winning in life simply requires a little knowledge, a little effort, a little prayer, and the will to move forward.
After the Covid-19 fiasco, frustration in 'the system' is at the forefront. The so called "Healthcare System" is broken. There are many reasons for this, and I would like to share my clinical experiences with you and yours.
Like my very self, this site is always under construction. So please check back as I share with you my experiences and what I have learned from others.
