Some Thoughts on Nutrition
Those who know me, know
that I am health conscious -- I do what I can to be as healthy
as I can be... and that includes eating right, exercising and
doing all I am able given my own limitations. I will be
holding chats on health-related topics and things you can do
to feel better living with pain, depression and anxiety.
However, because I am this sites administrator, and a
Juice Plus +® whole food nutrition,

promote my own personal business.
Juice Plus +®
Provides the nutritional essence of 17 different fruits,
vegetables and grains in a convenient capsule form.
