Stefan was immediately subjected to a heavy regimen of drugs and pain pills.  Knowing there had to be a better way to live, he conducted an exhaustive search to uncover the most effective ways to overcome the health challenges that faced him.  Eventually, he was able to ditch some of his big-pharma products and wanted to share what he’d learned about the honest solutions and simple habits that can improve anyone’s health.
