Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by BetterHealthGuy.com.  Having suffered from two serious and chronic illnesses in my life (or likely one very long one with a reasonable remission in the middle), I wanted to create a means for sharing what I have learned with other people.  Equally important, I wanted to create a vehicle for learning even more about health and wellness from all of you that stop by.  

I've been diagnosed at one time or another with so many different conditions over the course of my bouts with chronic illness that I have lost count.   The list of things that I have been told I may have had includes: mononucleosis, chronic Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/CFIDS), Fibromyalgia (FMS), severe food allerges, Leaky Gut Syndrome, parasitic infections, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), heavy metal toxicity, Candida, Western Equine Encephalomyelitis (from a mosquito bite), Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, Bartonella, Babesia, HHV-6, and others.  If only I had gotten a T-Shirt for each of these diagnoses, I'd be clothed for life.
 
At some point, you don't know where to turn or what to do next.   Doctors often fail you.  The health care industry is driven by the almighty dollar.  No one seems to know what to do, and you have to take things into your own hands and do everything you can to improve your situation.  If there is one thing I have learned through this, it is that there is always hope.
 
I don't want to imply that solving the puzzle is easy, but I do think that everyone is capable of notable healing given a solid course of action and the right people on your healthcare team to serve as guides for your own self-healing to emerge.  I have learned so much on my journey towards Better Health, and I hope that you will take something useful away from your visit and maybe leave something useful in return.

If you are fortunate enough to have good health, my hope is that you will learn some things here that will help you maintain your health as long as possible.  If you have a chronic illness like I did, then I hope that we can learn from each other as we continue our journeys to Better Health.  Please share your thoughts and ideas for products and approaches for solving chronic health problems.  You can always reach me via the Contact Me page.  I look forward to hearing from you!
