"So please keep that in mind"

I'm tempted to delete this course every time she says "so please keep that in mind", but I'm forcing myself through it for some reason. I'd make a drinking game out of it, but this is a nutrition course...

Episode 19: vitamins

While I am not a nutritionist (hence listening to these podcasts), I found this intro to vitamins lecture to be good and I did learn a few things I hadn't known. However, this lecture suffers from poor editing - the first 13 minutes is the instructor blathering on about results of exams, schedules, etc. that should have hit the cutting room floor. So, if you listen to this I highly recommend fast forwarding to minute 13 or a few seconds thereafter to start your session.

Working together with my Doctor Educate me

More Doctors should be trying to educate their patients and patients should be trying to correct a bad path and have their saliva tested as well as blood and union and do a skin test to stop the imbalances in a resins body
