Thanks for stopping by and visiting my health secrets blog. Before I make any specific posts, I wanted to take a few moments to let you know the purpose of this blog, what you can expect from me, and also what you won’t see me doing.

First, the purpose of this blog is to help you break through all of the clutter you see online and to help you separate marketing hype from the actual facts. I spend a lot of time online looking at different sites that are supposed to be helping people lose weight or getting healthier, and as I’m sure you’re well aware, there’s a lot of mixed messages out there.

healthyI decided that using a blog platform would make it easy for me to update this site since if you’ve visited before, you know that in the past, I haven’t updated very often. Since it’s really easy to update a blog, you can expect me to post new articles and information a few times a week, probably not daily, but at least once a week. One hobby I have is making videos, so from time to time I may start adding videos or podcasts, but one thing you’ll always be able to count on is some good old fashioned text.

One topic that you’re going to see from me frequently is the topic of weight loss.

healthyWhy? Well, considering how many Americans are currently overweight or obese, and the amount of health problems being overweight causes, I think that any site that’s going to spend time talking about optimal health ought to spend a considerable amount of time talking about how to lose weight. But for those of you who are already in good health, don’t worry, there will be plenty of information that you’ll want to read as well.

You won’t see me pushing the latest fad diets here and you won’t see me promoting every new supplement that hits the market. There are certain diets that work, and there are certain supplements that I’ve had good results with that I recommend, but I won’t recommend anything that I think is unproven or unsafe just to make a few extra bucks.

This site is supported by advertising, so if you do see an ad for something that I don’t recommend, then don’t click on the ad, and the ad being there is certainly not an endorsement by me. This site is also not like some of those magazines that you see that are nothing more than ways for drug companies to push their products as the way to stay healthy.

My take on drug companies is that while they do serve a purpose, ultimately their mission is to make as much money as possible, not keep you as healthy as possible so if you’re looking for an alternative to drugs and medications, I’ll try to provide as many as I can.

My disclaimer: I am not a doctor. I don’t play one on TV. I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. I’m simply one person who wants to live a long and healthy life, and I want to help others do the same. So please don’t take anything I say here as gospel, and when in doubt, consult your doctor.
