PHONE CONSULTATIONS (Available Thursdays Only 10am - 2pm)
According to current scientific research, less than 10% of all cancers are genetically based, leaving the remaining 90% to lifestyle and environmental factors. Have you maybe already been through one or several conventional treatments and feel like you’d like to focus more now on those lifestyle and environmental factors? Perhaps your doctor or nutritionist has already recommended adding wheatgrass to your diet and you would like more specific information about wheatgrass before proceeding. Let me help you sort through some of the confusion.
As a professional grower with over 10 years of experience working with healthcare providers and their patients, my own specialty happens to be wheatgrass and plant-based nutrition. In addition to providing research-based information on wheatgrass and the benefits of adopting a whole foods, plant based diet, I can also help you to make the right juicer purchase and suggest ways for you to get the most out of your fresh wheatgrass purchase.
Telephone consultations are free.
