Too many degrees?

It is sad to think that one can be accused of having too many degrees. I am forever pushing health practitioners  to take training in an entirely different healing modality.

How can chocolate be a benefit?

Another new diet that will help EVERYONE!?

I don't know about you, but I hate these kinds of advertisements...and for a few reason... Too many people believe that if a given protocol works for them - whether they devised it or bought it - it should work for everyone.  I can't believe that people are that limited in their thinking.
