The Wellness Garden is Shawna Coronado’s sixth book on wellness. Inspired by a medical diagnosis which devastated Shawna physically at the prime of her gardening and photography career, she took the advice of her nutritionist and doctors to entirely change her lifestyle and find a better way to live.
Shawna’s passionate about the book and helping people discover their health:
This is the book that truly addresses how I changed my life by significantly reducing my chronic pain while teaching you how to reduce your chronic pain as well. In the book I give tips on diet and the nutritive values of vegetables; how to grow your own food; how to use tools to garden; how to practice 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 full color ‘how to’ book, telling you how I reduced pain levels and improved the quality of my life – if I can do it, you can do it too!”
