Diabetes is not genetic
She was a beautiful woman. A patient who was easy for me to relate to. When she started to weep, I understood. I’ve heard stories like hers hundreds of times since the beginning of my career, back in Lake Worth in 1992. Let me tell you why I think this is important for you.

Like they already know everything there is to know. Truth is, nutrition is a brand-new science. And new discoveries are made all the time.

This Vitamin Could Save Your Life
For years, I’ve recommended that my patients take a special family of super-nutrients with the power to boost their health and save their lives in at least a half a dozen ways.

And I do it because almost daily I observe the effects of the...
