"For those seeking answers, this course fills the void that I found exists when confronted with a diagnosis. Books seem to be overwhelming on the subject with no solutions or specific programs. Family doctors don’t always offer a course of action but instead, a means to cope.  

This program hits on all issues we have encountered and are anticipating... Having text and videos helps to absorb the matter depending on my mood.  

One of the most helpful things from this course was realizing that we’re not alone and help exists other than drugs.  My biggest Aha! moment was learning of blood testing and supplements that can help."
