(NaturalNews) For the last several months, I've been collaborating with renowned author, entrepreneur and content creator Craig Pepin-Donat on a unique, high-density content program that's just been announced this week.

In this article, I review this content course and share why I think this is the top collection of immediately useful health information available today, featuring an impressive lineup of health gurus and experienced teachers.
