Choosing your HEM actions wisely can have a huge impact
"On joining HEM, after dragging my heels deep into the dirt, I made a yearly checkup one of my HEM health actions. It isn’t something I normally do, but thankfully I did. My provider found a lump on my Thyroid. I wouldn’t have gone in if it hadn’t been for HEM. I hope others can find early stages of their health conditions and not too late to do something about it."  - a member
