  1. Dear Dr Seyfried. I wish I would have heard of you three years ago. I lost my sister to breast cancer almost a year ago. She was 37. She had two young daughters, who are now 6 and 4. I watched in agony as the drugs that were supposed to save her, were actually what killed her in the end.
    Thank you for what you do.

  2. I watch videos featuring Dr Seyfried and while it is true he covers much of the same ground each time I always learn more with every video. Thank you Dr Seyfried and friends.
