About Us

Updated July 15, 2016


At OneStopHealthGuide.com we are committed to helping you live a healthy life. We provide information, tips and useful links to support your healthy lifestyle. And we assign our own independent ranking of the information on each topic:


A five apple rank is something we think is trustworthy, useful and worthy of your consideration and further investigation. As the number of apples declines, we will give you reasons why we think the item might have some problems.


Of course, there are also some “rotten apples” we want to warn you about. After all, they can lead directly to poor health or indirectly cause it by keeping you from pursuing a more potentially fruitful path.
