Fountain of Health
Regain Your Health, Happiness, and Lose Weight. A Revolution in Health for Everybody
Manuel R Moran, M.D., Ph.D., J.D.
While working as a surgeon over the last few decades, it became increasingly frustrating to Dr. Manuel Moran the obvious increase in diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and many other health problems. The lack of preventative support to his patients by the official medical establishment prompted Dr. Moran to write a one-page pamphlet with instructions on how to stay healthy, which he gave to his patients. Later those instructions became two pages, three pages . . . and finally this book, Fountain of Health.
Drawing from his decades of experience, Dr. Moran has compiled practical information to prevent and even reverse these common conditions. Follow the advice included and you too can remain healthy or regain your health and happiness.
