6,000-year-old track record for healing leaky gut
When I was traveling in India, I had the privilege of studying Ayurvedic medicine with traditional Master Healers.

Tips For Managing Chronic Pain For A Better Life

You may find it more difficult to do basic household chores or to find the energy to exercise; it may be harder to concentrate at work or school, and you may be more at risk for depression and anxiety.

They occur when your own immune system becomes overactive and attacks your body instead of diseases and foreign invaders. The standard mainstream treatment for most autoimmune disorders relies on Big Pharma drugs that cover up symptoms or suppress your immun...
