How do you feel?: I had so many health problems I overcompensated with success in other areas such as academia, culminating in digital nomadism. Now that I’m addressing these problems head-on I feel empowered.
Which therapies did you try before?: Regular chiropractic for pain relief. General health and neurotropic advice such as that on the BulletproofExec.com
