Food Not MedsCarol’s Book

“Food not Meds” is the story of a “journey” through the healthcare system trying to find solutions for John’s heart disease . What was learned and how this couple came through it all taught them more than they could have imagined. The journey was tumultuous, and at times is heart wrenching, but it ends with a profound message of hope for those afflicted with heart disease and the people in their lives.
