This week, History Buff, Citizen Scientist and Wall Street Tech Guru Tucker Goodrich shares how he healed himself of diverticulitis, irritable bowel Syndrome, and stroke-like symptoms all by changing his diet. Getting little help from contemporary medicine, Tucker decided to focus his professional problem-solving skills towards his personal health issues.
