Cheryl Sanders, also in her 50's, grew up in Pensacola, Florida the only girl in a family of 5 brothers.

She segued her world title into a successful movie career, becoming one of the top stuntwoman in the world in the late 1980's and 1990's. A "hover-board" accident and near death experience on the set of big-budget cult movie "Back To The Future, Part 2", opened her eyes to the world of natural health and nutrition.
Cheryl was accidentally dropped from a cable 22 feet above the concrete and suffered a critical concussion and five subsequent reconstructive surgeries to her face, arm and hand. These injuries and operations left her desperate to regain her health. Cheryl's accident led her on an intensive natural health search on how to detoxify and rid her body of drugs, anesthesia and poisons, balance her pH, and fortify and regain her health. Her research literally altered her life path to include natural health, wellness, going back to school and becoming a certified nutritionist and subsequently helping others through nutritional education... Through her own tragic accident and road to recovery she uses her story to inspire others.
