Sanity & Reason

We apply sanity and reason to make a sense of the contradicting information on health and nutrition out there providing you in-depth articles and practical advice on how fasting, diet, and sustainable lifestyle can help you heal and feel your best in years.

I question everything until I find what I consider to be the truth. You may feel confused and need some trustworthy answers from somebody who puts their name on it. Read on, here is what I found.
