I am blessed to have grown up in Southern California. Not in a big city, but a small town where people rode their horses to restaurants, and you waved at everyone driving by. My family is supper close, always have been, and we’re all blessed with good old common sense. Throughout my childhood, as an All-American in college, and into my 40’s I have struggled with my health. Constant illness, respiratory conditions, seasonal struggles, stomach discomfort, headaches and the list goes on, along with the side effects and ineffectiveness of medications I took.
