This book is largely anecdotal in nature and contains the opinions of someone who is not in the medical field. It is the story of how some people have taken responsibility for their health care and what they have learned in the process. It is not intended to diagnose or prescribe anything, to make any scientific claim, or to take the place of your health care practitioner. It is intended only for the thoughtful consideration of people who take full responsibility for their actions. If you do not fit into this category, please do not read the book.
