Elissa Goodman – 25-Year Holistic Lymphoma Survivor

Elissa is a 25-year holistic Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, nutritionist, and author of the book Cancer Hacks: A Holistic Guide to Overcoming Your Fears and Healing Cancer.

Elissa took an integrative holistic approach and reversed her cancer, then a few years later her husband got cancer and did everything the doctors said, but did not survive. :(

Elissa has done a number of remarkable things over the years including creating cleanse programs for restaurants in the Los Angeles area: Café Gratitude, M Café, and Erewhon Market. And she even has menu items named after her at Café Gratitude called ‘Elissa Goodman’s Thyroid Juice’ and a salad she created called ‘I Am Cleansed’.

Elissa has a fascinating story and so much valuable survivor wisdom to share. I know you are going to love this interview. Enjoy!
