Donna Markussen, author, speaker, Empowerment Health Coach, is a fierce advocate for taking control of one’s own health. Donna teaches us how to summon the courage within and learn to question the conventional medicine approach towards disease and ill health. Instead of just treating symptoms, Donna teaches the awareness of the functional medicine approach that addresses the underlying cause of disease. She believes that Food Is The Best Medicine and that we must address those negative influences in our lives that may be harming our health. As a breast cancer survivor and advocate, Donna shares through her work, her personal struggles with disease, including her own battle with the autoimmune disease, chronic full body pain, and how she reversed her symptoms, therefore stopping all medications, through lifestyle changes, whole foods nutrition, and self-care.
