Don’t fall into the ploy that over-the-counter meds and drugs are the only way to get out of your sick rut! I mean if you just ate well, got off of the diet soda, salty chips and sugary candy/cookie processed food diet, you may feel (and look) like a million bucks. It’s CLEARLY NOT rocket science friends! So get with it. Be cool. Eat well, be well, live well. xxck
