    Mind Blown! You Have to Read This Book!

This is book three of his Wellness Code series, following The Obesity Code and The Diabetes Code. Dr. Fung is a nephrologist (kidney specialist) in the Toronto area who has deeply analytical mind for unravelling medical mysteries. He looks way past the surface of symptoms and diagnostic test results and delves deep into the root causes of disease, particularly the “chronic diseases of civilization” that are ravaging us now, but were relatively uncommon before the last hundred years or so.

    You Do You…

    In the process of writing and publishing my book, I have contracted with a wonderful company called Book Launchers to assist me with the publishing and marketing of a “self-published” book. When I was looking into whether to spend the money on this support, I looked at their other books and found another Canadian writing in the health space. Her name is Gillian Goerzen and her book, published with the help of Book Launchers, is called The Elephant in the Gym. She is a fitness trainer from Alberta who feels very strongly about the Body Positive approach to fitness and body love. I reached out to her and she graciously…
