Bill Evans, Author at Applied Health | Anti-Aging Begins Inside

About Bill Evans

As an early adrenaline junky, Bill Evans learned the harsh lessons of pay-back, as his body eventually rebelled with daily reminders that the thrills of "fast times" are fleeting, and the baggage of payment is heavy. In 1997, he began Applied Health in an effort to develop nutritional products for former athletes who were wrestling with the frustrations of aging, and were unwilling to give in to the echos of, "You're too old for that, now."... In other words, products for people just like him. All these years later, he is still enjoying most of the activities he once had to forfeit due to pain and immobility, but, this time he is a bit wiser.
