CHEAP RIDE AT A BAD CARNIVAL

I have the wonderful opportunity to speak to so many people about their overall health and one area I always talk about is sleep because I didn’t realize the importance of good sleep.  I don’t think most of us do.  With Dr. Huizenga’s help along with one of The Biggest Loser’s sponsors, Philips Respironics, I began […]
