HAVE YOU BEEN TAUGHT TO BELIEVE A DIAGNOSIS IS INEVITABLY THE END OF THE LINE? ARE YOU TIRED OF DIETING AND HEARING EXPERTS SAY IT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE LAZY AND DON'T DIET ENOUGH THAT YOU CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF? Have you been told "We don't know what is causing your illness, but we have a pill you can take for a lifetime"? Do you believe all food is the same and has little or no effect on health? Do you wonder why so many people are sick? "The 180 Degree Wellness Revolution includes the story of Tara's return to health.

It provides the background, the research, and the motivation that can place anyone on a path to prevention and recovery. But best of all, the reader will know they can do it too!" Sharyn Wynters, Internationally recognized naturopath and author of The Pure Cure. At the age of 28, Tara was disabled. Diagnosed with late stage Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Chronic Pain Syndrome, Autoimmune Thyroid Disease, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and Chronic Fatigue, Tara was wheelchair dependant for almost 5 years with little hope for recovery. The medical system offered medications to mask her symptoms. Unfortunately, the medications created more symptoms. Devastated, and resigned to her fate, Tara never imagined the gift she was being offered. From the depths of despair she was inspired to do her own research— to take charge of her own circumstances and to find her own way out. Thus began her journey from despondency to triumph. Over the years, Tara’s self-discovered and self-guided process has helped her to rebuild her health, reverse many symptoms and ditch the wheelchair. She is an example of the healing that is possible when a person begins to address the root cause(s) of illness. Tara shares her discoveries, her research and the experiences that brought her back to a joyful and fulfilling life.
