Susan used to have bad allergies, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, panic attacks and plantar fasciitis. The list goes on. Growing up, her acne was so severe that her siblings called her "pizza face." She was also very overweight. Her complications frequently required the use of crutches. However, within nine months of adopting a macrobiotic lifestyle comprised of whole, living foods, she says she lost approximately 50 pounds as well as a tumor that was in her back. These days, she stands before crowds telling them of her journey, free of crutches and full of life.
