Accurate Health Info - No Sales Spiel
Introduction
My name is Lisa Barger and once upon a time I took the field of "alternative" medicine very seriously.  I never envisioned I would be spending most of my career critiquing the work of others but I quickly realized that someone had to step up and expose the quacks, charlatans and scam artists in my industry.

I won't tell you what to do, what supplements to take or what brands to buy what what I will do is give you the tools to make an informed decision.
