Being healthy in this crazy, busy, modern world is not easy.

For journalist Shannon Harvey, finding the solution became personal when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.This inspired a 10-year journey testing treatments, searching through 1000’s of scientific papers, and interviewing pioneering researchers.

About ten years ago Shannon Harvey faced a personal health crisis and doctors couldn’t give her a cause or a cure. As a journalist, she went in search of answers, compiling the latest research proving a connection between our mind, body and health.

She made a film which includes remarkable stories of people recovering from illnesses like cancer, heart disease, infertility, chronic pain and MS.
