Discovery Lab is where I take on the role of human guinea pig. I test what works (and what doesn’t).

🔬 How I track my results and analyse the data
I track all findings on the Wellness Plan (a detailed spreadsheet!) I created to track my autoimmune disease.

There are LOTS more Discovery Lab reports to come but I try to give each test as much time as possible, so that I can gather data and feel more confident in any findings.
