The Inconvenient Truth About Health

Can You Handle It?There is one over-riding principle from which all authentic health practices spring: you are the only one who can create health. If you don’t do what health requires, it won’t get done. Only something less will result when you attempt to outsource the responsibility to any other person, or to be otherwise uninvolved.
