Now weighing the same as his seventh-grade self, and free from his depression, joint pain, and hypertension,he eagerly helps others through their own medical peril.
After a full decade of combined schooling, rotations, and clinical experience in the nutrition field, Steve has accumulated vast amount of experience in tailoring condition management to a person’s lifestyle, culture, schedule, and preferences.
