She watched Dr Oz and heard him say that the three things she needed to do to get healthy were to move more, eat less, and manage stress. She knew it was time to change so she did exactly what he said. She walked 30 minutes a day until the walking became running. SHe ate more leaves and greens and her “healthy lifestyle became her therapy.” She found that the more she exercised and the healthier she ate, the lower her stress was, until she no longer needed the medications.
