This has been the third year since I’ve started this blog and it all started out of the simple frustration of working a traditional healthcare job. In my daily experiences I come across countless patients who could make such big improvements in their life by taking making simple lifestyle changes through diet and nutrition. This site has continued to grow in popularity and I thank you all for that and everyone who stops by and regularly visits reads by blog. We had some very popular posts this year and in case you missed them, here are some of the most popular health topics from the past year.
