Never binge again. Really.

Evan Brand is a nutritional therapist and functional medical practitioner who got passionate about healing chronic fatigue, obesity, and depression after his own hard-won battle. He shares how he got healthy, why functional medicine matters, and why parasites and bacterial infections are a huge piece of the puzzle:
