About William

William Tucker is the Vice President of D&Y Laboratories, a research laboratory that specializes in environmental and natural health technologies. As part of his day-to-day activities, he is in touch with hundreds of integrative health practitioners, through personal contact, symposiums, and conferences. In his own words, "I love the fields of integrative and natural health, and consider it a real privilege to be in touch with so many different professionals. It gives me a very broad overview into the field of health. I find that just about every practitioner I talk to gives me either a broader overview, or a unique perspective, on some aspect of health. I enjoy writing about health as I have so many resources to draw from. Working at a research laboratory also gives me a different approach from most others writing in the field of health. I have to always question the information I receive; not that I am necessarily skeptical, but I have to qualify the information, and verify the facts. If you have any questions or feedback on my articles, or would like a specific subject addressed, please feel free to suggest them to me."
