Meet Sarah Waisler
Sarah did a year-long juice fast to heal herself from conditions doctors told her were chronic, progressive, and incurable. By the time she was 25, she had been diagnosed with over a dozen health conditions, was living with a wheelchair, a feeding tube, had been in organ failure multiple times, was rejected from major medical centers and top specialists for being too complicated, and was ready to give up. Instead, from a single, powerful conversation, Sarah chose hope.
On November 15, 2019 Sarah started her juice fast as one person and ended it on November 16th 2020 as someone completely different. She not only healed her physical body of all of the symptoms and conditions she was told would kill her, she also healed her emotional body which is what allowed the physical healing to take place. Since recognizing the universal truth that we are all magic and that we all have the ability to heal from whatever it is that we are experiencing, Sarah has made it her mission to share this message with the world. She regularly speaks on podcasts and is breaking into the world of public speaking, she is writing a book on her story as well as a children's book, and she has developed a coaching program to walk women through their own healing journies.
