Today we are talking to a woman who is passionate about helping people heal with plant-based foods. Alison Tierney’s mission stems from having her mother, grandmothers, and grandfather all endure a battle with cancer during her college years. After graduating with a degree in business she made the tough decision to start over, follow her heart and return to school to study nutrition. Now she’s a registered dietitian who has gained knowledge, not only through textbooks and research, but also through personal experience. In addition to helping others, she has put her knowledge to the test for herself. After switching to a whole-food plant-based diet she was able to overcome infertility and successfully manage polycystic ovarian syndrome. In today’s episode we talk about all of this, cancer fighting foods and more.
