Tithonus’ Mistake – avoiding a slow death

Michael didn’t go for career counselling, which might explain why he’s a medical doctor, an executive film & TV series producer, a renowned presenter, a health-tech entrepreneur (co-founder of Hello Doctor), a global speaker, consultant, author and most recently CEO of TruthTV.
Michael makes health simple to understand & practical to apply so that you can stop fretting about your well-being and start enjoying it – because, as he often says: “Life’s so much better when you’re healthy, and being healthy is so much easier than you think.”
