“Surviving in a body that wants to destroy you??

It ain’t easy trying to survive when you’re physically destructing from inside out”.


One reason that steered me fanatical to pen down this module happens to be that it greatly affects large section of population and causes irrevocable damages. The time is not far that it will become common like Diabetes and Hypertension but the incurred damage would not be easy to reverse; impacting the persons’ lifestyle, mental and physical health.
