I love writing about health and wellness because I believe it's important to become an expert of your own health, whether you have a specific condition or are trying to stay educated on the latest research, recommendations, and news. I hope to be able to help readers break down and understand the topics that are important to them, so they can get (and take) the best possible care of themselves.
