From the Author
Shawna Coronado says, "This is the book that truly addresses the passion I feel about finding wellness and how I changed my life by significantly reducing my chronic pain. I give tips on nutritive values of vegetables; how to grow your own herbs and vegetables; how to use tools to garden; how to use yoga, walking, and green activities to move you towards wellness; and most importantly, how to use all that information to help reduce chronic pain. My osteoarthritis pain levels were off the charts - I could not sleep or walk upright - until I began using diet and exercise to truly make a difference. I now have 80% less pain than I did when I was diagnosed and I feel better and strong. I bring that successful story of wellness directly to you with this book. I tell you how I reduced my pain and improved the quality of my life - if I can do it, you can do it too!"
