    Highly recommended

    I bought this when I did the hcg injections and it was invaluable. I may do the homeopathic spray he recommends next time (I gained about 5 pounds back).

    This guy knows his stuff, "walks the talk" and is very thorough. I constantly refer back to it. You won't be disappointed.
