Gary Null has helped countless Americans inprove their diets and their health with his natural approach to healthy living and scepticism of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.

As an alternative, Null offers "The Tao of Chow," in which he recommends countless natural alternatives that can easily be made at home—recipes included—and which can prolong and improve your pet's life.
