What Will It Take For You To Believe You Can Control Your Health?

Have you just resigned to do nothing more about your health, because you think that what you are doing is all you need? What if your sugar, cholesterol, or CRP or homocysteine levels will not normalize. What if your A1C is way over the normal range?
