The Health Guides
Welcome to my MelioGuide Health Guides series. You can use these to navigate through the variety of resources and information posted on this website.
Each of the individual health guides is focused on a specific health topic. I have tried to make each guide as comprehensive as possible and have provided links to each of the blog posts related to that topic and identified other resources such as free online courses and books that I have published.

The Inspiration for the Health Guides
I hope you find this Health Guides series comprehensive, educational and useful. And please signup for my regular newsletter so that you keep posted on my new articles. I regularly publish articles on health topics that matter to my clients and my readers.
I started this blog several years ago for my clients. They had many questions related to their health — even after their treatment sessions— and wanted regular access to up-to-date health information that they could use in their day-to-day lives.
Today there are over 300 blog posts (and growing), three books on Amazon, and almost 400 videos on my YouTube channel.
Almost 700,000 people have viewed my videos on safe and effective osteoporosis guidelines, core strength, activities of daily living, and many more health topics!
That’s a lot of information for people to wade through and finding information on the site can be a challenge. And this is why I have created these health guides so that you can navigate through the site and find the topic of most interest to you.
Today, you can find almost anything you want to know about health on the internet. I am not sure if all of it is very good and I probably would be careful with some of the recommendations. I try to be careful about generalizing my recommendations since every person has different health needs based on their personal health challenges.
As a result, I stay close to evidence-based recommendations and encourage individuals to consult a skilled health professional for their personal needs.
