Can’t Get Answers to Your Health Problems?

Well, you’re not alone. Not even close to being alone, in fact.

Of course, having plenty of company doesn’t make things better, but it says–loud and clear–that there’s a problem in getting help, and the problem is not you.

• A drunk driver damaged my health when I was a baby

• Doctors didn’t help so much

• And I realized it was up to me

• It took me years of research to figure it out

• Now all my research can help you

• If I did it, you can do it

“I used to work in a large medical practice and none of the doctors had any regard for JAMA. They used to toss their issues in the round file unread, saying it was full of paid research, and the results could not be trusted. But you, on the other hand, can be counted on to dig for the truth and interpret medical ‘discoveries’ for what they are. Thanks again!”

“What a treasure trove of good information and delightful writing you are. Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you every week.”

“Open up Bette it’s Arnie ! Love your emails – keep them coming !!”

“I love your no-nonsense, practical approach. Too often people get swamped with medical jargon and the ‘need’ to take medication ? I’ve been down that route! Looking for the root cause of disease and fixing that makes so much more sense and as you say, it’s usually diet!”
– Natalia Piendel
“Dear Bette, I always look forward to your mail. You have more insight than any doctor I know, and the health advice you give is of great value, at least has been so to me. Keep up the good job!”
