Janie Says

When I created the STTM website, it was done to counter lousy advice I was seeing on the internet on certain websites—advice that was keeping patients sick. Its goal was to educate the patient who in turn could take that empowering information into each and every doctor’s office and demand change…or find a much better doctor. But…patients were clamoring for a book.  And it was ideal, since a book can hold even more detail than a website without being overwhelming.  People wanted something right in their hands to learn from, and to take into their doctor’s office. So, I finally created the STTM book, and added a great deal more, as mentioned above. It has now been sent to over 31 countries, besides the vast amounts sent to the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK. Below are just some of the comments I’ve gotten, which I hope helps you in deciding if you need the book, as well.”
