A Word From Annie Kay

The science of health is filled with mystery, but the basics of a healthful lifestyle can usually make things better. First, aim to understand what's going on white your health, then as compassionately as you're able, ponder the distance between where you are and where you want to go. I've seen many a sticky health issue improve greatly with ongoing mindful experimentation and small changes practiced over time. Please keep going.
