Shameless Endorsement


Go to almost any high-profile, health and wellness website and you'll it bloated with the same spammy ads you'll see on almost every other health and wellness site. Perhaps a few of the products advertised actually live up to their claims and certainly those ads are making money for the sites that show them, but I just don't want any part of that whole network. At the very least, I feel exposing my readers to this kind of junk marketing distracts from the message I'm trying to communicate.

The challenge, then, is to distill what's left into something more approachable. That's the goal, anyway, so let's get started.
