Witnessing her mother and father — in short succession — lose their lives to cancer, Allison Melody endured significant trauma in her 20s.
Why did their bodies fail them? Why did the doctors have no answers? This tragic loss instilled in Allison an unwavering passion for nutrition and propelled her into the world of holistic health and healing. She vowed to honor her parents’ memory by dedicating her life to finding a way to heal the body naturally. After interviewing hundreds who have healed themselves of chronic and degenerative diseases for her film Powered By Plants and podcast Food Heals, Allison now firmly believes that the body has the ability to heal itself when given the tools it needs to do so. The intimate and uplifting true stories in this book are a must-read for anyone who is dealing with disease, stress, or any health imbalance and is looking for motivation, education, and inspiration to take their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being into their own hands. ---------- PRAISE FOR FOOD HEALS ---------- “Stories of healing, like those shared in Food Heals, give hope and encourage the reader to tap into their own personal strength.
