There’s a lot to learn or organize regarding on-line marketing –

  • writing compelling content
  • developing newsletters
  • SEO optimization
  • affiliate marketing
  • advertising
  • guest bloggers
  • social media coordination – FB, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn

The autoimmune space is not packed.

There are a few sites dealing with the science. Our offering will differ in that it will:

  • translate the science into terms the lay person can appreciate
  • emphasize the functional aspect of our recommendations – listening to one’s body, as opposed to blindly following the instructions of others
  • be fun

As to repeatability – new research comes to light every day, new health recommendations, etc. This site will evaluate such claims in relation to autoimmune conditions.
