my 18-minute Nutritional Dharma Talk with Dr. David Minkoff that could very possibly transform your life, and certainly – if you are an athlete – your sport performances…hang in there, the Highest Teachings are in the final few minutes… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqULDbbLKD8&feature=youtu.be&list=UUR6HYzxibSJujnjbtgRsETA&utm_source=BHFN+-+A+-+7%2F24%2F2014&utm_campaign=UA-709316-1&utm_medium=email
