Posted on May 20, 2019


Fasting, is it for Everyone?   Fasting. The buzziest word of 2017, 2018, 2019, and probably for a few more years.  Or maybe it is just on my mind. You know when you are buying a car and you want a yellow car- then you start to see yellow cars everywhere. It’s not the influx … Continue reading Fasting, is it for everyone?
