Quality KN95 Masks at Affordable Prices – Quick Delivery!

We felt it was our responsibility to find a reliable health & wellness company that had access to KN95 masks for you to stay healthy & well, avoid expensive fines, and even potential jail time.

Accidental Fear or Valid reporting? Risk of New IBD Rises for Patients Treated With Etanercept

The Center for Biosimilars today published an article that concluded that there is a fearful risk of being diagnosed with IBD Crohn’s or Colitis for those currently being treated with Etanercept. Respectfully, I believe this study is incomplete and does not tell the full story. Though I don’t currently have access to the full study, just the Wiley Online Library Summary and the Center for Biosimilars article, until Lifestyle and Diet are factored into these studies I believe they do not tell the complete story.  20 years of clinical and cost outcomes from Integrative Medicine* have demonstrated the following results:

The Crohns Colitis Summit Changed My Life. Don’t give up the good fight! You are bringing so much healing to the world….

…that’s what Mia emailed me. After asking her to elaborate, this is what she said next: I have rheumatoid arthritis. I got diagnosed at the end of 2016, with a 4 months wait to see a rheumatologist, on state insurance because I wasn’t able to work from the pain and fatigue, and with Trump attacking the ACA I was terrorized over the idea of being dependent on the US medical system and then being denied coverage. I decided to seek further education in proactive healthcare I could rely on. I spent that time doing AIP to see if anything besides

Myth: You are one illness away from bankruptcy

Yesterday: “You are one illness away from bankruptcy” 😕 Today: “You are one ambulance ride away from bankruptcy” 😧😲 Only 23% of Americans are able to afford an unexpected medical bill that more than $2,000, yet out-of-pocket medical costs keep rising. That’s because the #1 reason for bankruptcy in America is medical bills ❌Not Job Loss ❌Not Divorce ❌Not Student Loans, Foreclosure or a Failed Business MEDICAL BILLS My last Ambulance🚑 Ride on March 26, 2017, cost me over $2,500 – for a six-mile ride from Sorrento Valley when I was living with Ipek, Craig, and Faith who were at work.

The Breakfast Of Champions

THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS “At the risk of sounding like a salesman, one product completely changed my life. I’d like to send you info on it if you’re open to receiving it. Bless you, on your path of a healer.” That was the DM I received when Juan slid into my DMs. The more I learned, the more I was impressed You see, Glyphosate, the most common being Roundup from Monsanto, is the most widely sold and used pesticide in the world. It’s used on food crops, in parks, gardens, along roads and railway tracks, and in cemeteries. Affording to
