Interview with Olive Retreat

Why did you write the Health Guide?
It was written to support our lessons at Olive Retreat. It is focused on digestion, leaving time to talk about other parts of health. Our classes teach both body and mind health and are basically joining both modern science with ancient and evidence-based methods.
What is your reading of choice?
Everything that helps me learn.
How come you know so much about health?
I had no choice but to learn! It wasn't my career, or intention, but a series of events in my life led to my need to try holistic methods. I understood at an early stage that mainstream medicine was not healing but killing, and I needed solutions for those I love.
What are you working on next?
Now we are working on an expanded version of the Olive 8 and a book about healing where we explore and give advice on how healthy living goes beyond oneself. In this work we see the bigger picture, and how our society - in spite of its destructiveness - can provide a perfect healing scenario too.
Who are your favorite authors?
All the books that have given my insights independent of genre. I started my studies with Deepak Chopra in 1989 and Ayurveda has been very important, but I have had great insights from everything from children's books like Pippi Long-stockings, psychology and management books, Nobel Price literature like Chronicle for A Death Foretold by García Marquez, to books about Orthomolecular Medicine and Quantum Medicine.
