Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by BetterHealthGuy.com.  Having suffered from two serious and chronic illnesses in my life (or likely one very long one with a reasonable remission in the middle), I wanted to create a means for sharing what I have learned with other people.  Equally important, I wanted to create a vehicle for learning even more about health and wellness from all of you that stop by.  

I've been diagnosed at one time or another with so many different conditions over the course of my bouts with chronic illness that I have lost count.   The list of things that I have been told I may have had includes: mononucleosis, chronic Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/CFIDS), Fibromyalgia (FMS), severe food allerges, Leaky Gut Syndrome, parasitic infections, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), heavy metal toxicity, Candida, Western Equine Encephalomyelitis (from a mosquito bite), Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, Bartonella, Babesia, HHV-6, and others.  If only I had gotten a T-Shirt for each of these diagnoses, I'd be clothed for life.
 
At some point, you don't know where to turn or what to do next.   Doctors often fail you.  The health care industry is driven by the almighty dollar.  No one seems to know what to do, and you have to take things into your own hands and do everything you can to improve your situation.  If there is one thing I have learned through this, it is that there is always hope.  Read More
