Today’s episode deals with a sensitive issue. Our guest is Lyle Haugen, a fascinating man who overcame a life threatening injury and won his battle against Diabetes 1.
Our topic is sensitive because Lyle took control of his own health when the medical advice he was following was not helping him improve his quality of life. He took bold steps and went beyond diabetes.
I’m not a medical professional, nor do I give medical advice in this episode. That would be irresponsible. I do encourage people to explore every avenue that may lead to optimal health. We all have freedom of choice.
