Honest Medicine

A comment on my blog has prompted me to mention Julia Schopick’s website, Honest Medicine, http://www.honestmedicine.com/.

On her website, David Brownstein, MD says, “I recommend Honest Medicine to all who are open-minded and looking for safe, effective therapies that have a sound biochemical basis behind them.

As someone whose serious health issues went undiagnosed and unresolved for decades until I went to a naturopath, I appreciate your approach to chronic illness. A simple blood test started me on the road to recovery, and sometimes the best medicine is the simplest.
