drb 2012-05How to Obtain Optimal Health

I am Dr. Michelle Brannick, ND, DC.  I am a Naturopathic Physician licensed in Vermont, and a licensed Chiropractic Physician in Illinois. I specialize in Natural Primary Care Medicine.

Today, I am going to tell you how to obtain optimal health:

For example, MRSA is a deadly bacteria that is the direct result of overusing antibiotics. Even the most powerful prescriptions have difficulty overcoming this infection.
