We’ve saved the best for last!

This is actually the “blog-iest” category of our blog, where we just follow up any area of interest, be it material to more completely explain what we do to the “health keeners” amongst you, something we stumble across in the course of research on patient cases, “deeper dives” into laboratory assessments or natural medicines we’re keen to learn about (or re-visit), commentary on health policy, or just “stuff” (this links to an article on natural hangover remedies, so you may want to follow it up).

If you enjoy what you view, please share, and follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see our posts at their most relevant.

Enjoy!
