  Guest: Sharon Greenspan, CHHP, HTCP, M. Ed            Board Certified Health Practitioner and Nutrition Coach

Host:   Gina Lewis

Sharon had number of tragedies in her personal life which resulted in weight gain and depression. Doctors reported that she had a tumor (and the only test for malignancy was to inject radioactive pharmaceuticals into her bloodstream. She declined. She is now tumor-free.) Research of the tumor revealed arthritis so debilitating that they thought her spine would fuse together into one piece. Through the living foods lifestyle pioneered by Ann Wigmore and carried forward by Brian Clement, David Wolfe and many others, she found relief. She released over 50 pounds and let go of useless habits and beliefs which no longer served her. She’s completed several progressive fasts and continues to learn more about this way of life. She now has a regular yoga practice and even teaches! Check out her “before” and “after” pictures:
