Jeanne Schumacher

This episode with Jeanne Schumacher is all about what can happen when someone is chronically ill and switches to a whole foods plant based diet - and begins to heal. Listen now - take notes - and dive deep into Jeanne's journey and how it just might help save a life - even yours.

Jeanne Schumacher, who has earned her doctorate in science and education and has taught for over 30 years, is a firm believer in “walking the walk.” She is committed to inspiring people to change their health destiny through a non-toxic whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle. She is passionate about making a difference in the lives of others by teaching them practical ways to improve their health. She believes that food is our best medicine and helps us get our bodies back to a state of health when faced with “dis”-ease. She has been sharing her knowledge through motivational and educational lectures as well as on her website www.jschumacher.org.

Schumacher has followed a plant-based diet since 2009 and has become a motivational speaker and educator on whole-foods, plant-based living as well as living without toxins. Her transformation to a healthier lifestyle began with a trip to the emergency room with a 105 degree fever, deadly high blood pressure and an unknown infection. Luckily, the physician who attended her was not only trained in medicine but also in nutrition. This doctor started Schumacher on a journey that would not only change her health destiny, but her life as well.

Schumacher has successfully completed the coursework from Dr. John McDougall on the Starch Solution, has earned her Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate through eCornell - Center for Nutritional Studies and completed the Women’s Studies and Food Over Medicine program through Dr. Pam Popper and the Wellness Forum.
