We had the good fortune of connecting with Monica Hershaft and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Monica, how does your business help the community?
During this time of fear over our health and people feeling so powerless, the work I do is so important because it teaches people how to protect their health and how their body becomes vulnerable to taking on any illness whether it’s virus, bacteria or anything that impacts their body’s ability to function normally! It’s so important for people to feel confident that their body can handle anything and can do its job properly to protect its immune function. We don’t have an owner’s manual so when we don’t understand why we get sick, it can be very scary! Having the right tools and education to know what steps to take to keep our bodies working properly is the very essence of living your best life. 

What should our readers know about your business?
My “super power” is the strength to never give up. I help chronically sick people with mystery symptoms get REAL repair and recovery so they can get their health back and keep it by addressing the underlying cause with a customized health repair program including nutrition, supplementation, and toxin elimination to restore and repair inflammation, digestion, sleep, fatigue and fix the body’s immune function. The goal is to remove the interference and then your body can do its job properly so you can get and stay healthy and symptom free! What Makes Us Different This program has a beginning middle and end with 3 distinct phases. Other holistic programs require you to have to keep going back endlessly for the rest of your life to manage your symptoms. We identify and address blocks to healing so the body will respond properly and heal. If the things that are blocking the body’s ability to respond to treatment are not addressed, nothing you try will work properly! That’s why so many people aren’t able to get results with other programs. We explain and teach you why and how we are doing everything that we do here. You will understand everything by the end of the program and we provide digestible information every week to help you learn and absorb how and why you got symptoms, how we are addressing it and how to maintain it long after the program ends and into the future. We overdeliver. She Knows How You Feel Being plagued with her own mystery illness for 10+ years after participating in a popular detox program, Monica knows first-hand the frustration that chronic symptoms and an improper diagnosis can create for those struggling with their health. Having this personal experience has allowed Monica to not only heal her clients physically, but to understand them on a deep, personal level.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Since we are on lockdown, everything is closed at this time but I would take them down to the beach in Santa Monica to walk around!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My dad never gave up on me when I was so sick for those 10 years and his support and help got me through during a time when I never thought I’d be OK again!
