You're a good egg Joshua :-) What a lovely response! So good to hear all of that... It sounds like you really are going to be running a wonderful clinic that actually cares :-)

Yeah, I definitely agree! I think people forget that many serious diseases have at least a partial link with the body being in a more acidic state, which is definitely affected by nutrition... Glad to hear you're passionate about what you do :-)

Truly hope everything glides along nicely for you, particularly while you're getting everything going...

All the best :-)
