Sugar is not just candy and pastries, the soda and loaded coffee drinks you order each day; it’s also found in many other foods — foods, in fact, processed by their manufacturers to force your body into addiction. Refined sugar is made similarly to heroin and cocaine, but triggers the brain’s receptors 8 times more than cocaine. It’s a serious issue, because refined sugar is found in +80% of grocery store foods. No wonder we find it impossible to stop eating it, even though we know it’s killing us!

The Sweet Freedom Summit can help!
Join us to learn more about:

  • How “non-food addiction” can lead to a serious and painful death
  • Impacts of poorly processed foods on your emotional state
  • Educating your family to be supportive and healthy
  • Why diets rarely work long term (and the strategy that does!)
  • Creating nourishment in your heart, mind and spirit!
  • And, so much more...

Two decades ago, your host, Sherry Strong, was completely addicted to sugar. She was obese, sick and depressed to the point of wanting to die. All of that changed when she removed sugar from her diet. If you are struggling to give up sugar or even if you simply indulge periodically — whether a health professional, busy mom or career-driven person — this event can help you, finally, improve your health and your life.
