After 25+ years of working with the world’s top immunologists, doctors of all types, vitamin specialists, herbal specialists, and the top organic skin care developer in the world, Jason has seen the effects that our chemical based world has had on adults, women, men, and most of all children of all ages. He saw it first hand in his immediate family; his step-mother in the 80’s, his grandparents in the 90’s, and his wife within the last decade dealing with breast cancer. Jason has made it his passion to transition away from chemical pharmaceutical drugs and foods to a more sustainable, life generating, way of feeding and medicating the human species. He believes we need to change our mindsets to live WITH life, not kill everything undesirable around us. Jason started the San Juan Health and Wellness Center for just that purpose, to live longer, stronger, healthier lives.
