Morning Session

Do you ever wonder as you wander through the grocery aisles and you come up to the vitamins and supplements and wonder, should I be taking something? Do you listen to Dr. Oz and The Doctors show? Do you also read health magazines and in the end you find yourself totally confused? This course will separate the truth from the hype. You will learn exactly what your body needs, and what supplements to use. Learn to not throw away money on useless supplements and only focus on the ones you should have.
