After the birth of my daughter in 1997, I found myself living a nightmare of disability and chronic pain, without anyone cluing in for over twelve years that her suffering was related to food sensitivities and autoimmune dysfunction. During that time, my greatest fear was that my daughters would be left motherless before they graduated high school.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Author of YUM: Dr. Theresa Nicassio

“COOKING UP KINDNESS”

Dr. Theresa Nicassio is an ordinary woman whose life path as a Registered Psychologist (#1541) beginning in the mid-1980’s and later as a special needs mom took a horrific turn when her health plunged into an unexpected nosedive after the birth of her daughter in 1997. Instead of enjoying motherhood as the active woman she had been prior her pregnancy, Theresa found herself living a nightmare of disability and chronic pain, without anyone cluing in for over twelve years that her suffering was related to food sensitivities and autoimmune dysfunction. During that time, her greatest fear was that her daughters would be left motherless before they graduated high school.

You will learn more about Theresa’s story from debilitation to a vitality that she didn’t know would be possible, as well as the many gifts and discoveries that she uncovered along the way that led to the creation of her game-changing “Masterpiece” that is changing lives around the globe.

Offering you simple solutions to the “ache” that you feel about your health, relationships, and the future of the planet, Theresa uses her integrated personal and professional knowledge to provide you hope in the face of despair, helping you heal from the inside-out.
