Jillian Michaels Attacks Keto – Exposing Her Bias and Harmful Impact

Jillian Michaels attacks keto without really giving any concrete examples to back up her arguments. This is very frustrating given that celebrities have a lot of influence.

New Media Platform – Violet’s Practical Help is Now On Facebook

Hello everyone,

As some of you are aware, my videos are no longer being hosted on YouTube. I have been in the process of finding a new place to post my videos so that I can continue to provide you with quality content on a regular basis. I will be moving my videos to Facebook and put them in my blog as I have been doing. I am currently in the process of replacing all the broken links in my blog, which is actually taking longer than I anticipated. I hope that you will bear with me while I get my blog back up to date and then I will be able to resume filming new content to continue to help demystify psychology.

Thank you for your understanding,

Violet.
