G’day and welcome to my site!
Knowledge is power and that’s especially true of your health. 80% of the conditions which ‘knock us off the perch’ before our time, are preventable.
There is so much information but it’s hard to find information which is based on strong evidence so you can adopt it so the changes can be incorporated into your life style and be part your health plan. Your individual health plan is vital in understanding how your body works and allowing you to plot your progress if things go wrong.
Let me be your broker in that search for healthy facts and allow me to join you on your journey to health and well being. To read my latest posts click on What’s on my mind or if you are interested in listening in to Health Matters or Health Check you can also find the links above.
