A a life-changing experience in his early 20s that help to create what NOVO is today, the wellness and weight-loss experts.
In his own words "at age 22 I was on my way to medical school. I was quite a good athlete, running over 100 miles per week and really feeling on top of the world. By age 23 I developed tuberculosis. Shortly thereafter, I contracted liver disease. And within a few months, my immune system had tanked. I was feeling shocked, but even worse, some of the doctors I caring for me gave me only six months to live! I spent the next 4 years trying to save my life. I did everything possible and tried every crazy remedy that I could find hoping I would find the one. In case you wonder, I did make it. And I am here today to show. I am full of energy and healthy.
How did I do it? A 94-year-old physician nutritionist set me on my path. He helped me to realize that taking care of the basic nutritional needs and keeping my metabolism functioning would create a fertile environment for the rest of my body to heal. He was so correct. And I saw so many of the results he had with patients who were overweight or obese.
