Now retired from teaching, she counsels people on nutrition through her business, Her writing now consists of health blogs on her website, where she remains committed to helping others heal. Her thesis is entitled Interstitial Cystitis as a Comorbidity of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. Great work, Patricia!
