Quote of the Day - December 6th:
Our findings suggest that there may be a fundamental disconnect between how patients and physicians think about and manage asthma.

Skin Care for Sensitive Skin

By Heather Legg | 2 Comments »

The average person uses about seven skin care products per day. That is a lot, and if you are the low side, think about the people that are bringing the numbers up to seven!

Celiac Disease and Allergies

By Heather Legg | 2 Comments »

I have to take on a personal note today as my good friend, after months upon months of sickness, struggling and a myriad of doctors, just had her daughter diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
