I wish to thank my two boys, Hayden and Eitan, for letting me sleep through the night most of the time and for all the joy and laughter they add to my life; my mother, for always being excited to hear what I have to say about nutrition and applying it right away in her own life; my brother, Dr. Dan Rudé, for providing his chiropractic expertise with regard to wellness; Kim Stakal, a superb organic chef, for providing her expertise in recipe consulting; The Livitician Network staff, for all their assistance in teaching my Livit philosophy to the thousands of patients who walk through the door and for helping the first Livitician book become a reality; and last and most important, my patients, who continue to fuel my passion to spread the word with tips for achieving optimal health. Thank you!
