Building Health by Design

Show Details HostLearn how it is possible to improve and maintain health by working with the design of the human body. Our goal is to empower individuals to take control of their personal health care and to provide sound information about the body’s ability to deal with disease, development and aging. We especially stress the dangers of treating symptoms with medications rather than addressing the underlying cause of those symptoms. Achieving optimum health is a matter of choice, not a matter of chance.
