Treat the Cause… of the Solution?

Hey Folks! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here but sometimes it takes the right influence to inspire some writing.  This idea most likely isn’t new (as at this point there can’t be TOO many new ideas), but I haven’t heard it so it must just be uncommon.  The idea is this… “Treat […]
