While the internet is a wonderful place full of free information and all sorts of useful things, it also requires the ability to evaluate what you find. Search engine any subject and you will discover learned people discussing the real issues and providing real solutions side by side with people who sound like they know something but are actually passing on hearsay and misinformation. Worse yet this misinformation is often passed on by good people who simply have not taken the time to evaluate or study the facts and are passing bad information without even realizing it.
We recommend that you always evaluate your sources and look for validated results of the application of their knowledge. Looking for validated results will help you identify things that are workable, which in the final analysis is what you want; something that works. So if it works with the majority of cases, than it is probably a valid piece of knowledge and worth knowing.
If you are still having trouble finding information on your particular concern you can always come in for a free evaluation and we would be happy to answer questions educate you about the specific issues and pain you are experiencing and help you find a solution.
