Dr. Janet Shefts has been a successful chiropractor for 25 years. An elite athlete in college, she was able to combine her passion for sports and wellness into a satisfying livelihood.
When she began facing debilitating pain from prior sports injuries and rehabilitative surgeries, she sought resources that would help her nutritionally and organically.
She first became interested in the healing properties of chocolate when she found it helped her own health and rehabilitation.The Journal of Nutrition paper “Food of the Gods: Cure for Humanity? A Cultural History of the Medicinal and Ritual Use of Chocolate” offers a history of the the medicinal use of cacao, or chocolate. When she found a specialty cold-processed dark chocolate with strong antioxidant benefits, she tried it herself. Her successful experience led not only to her improved health, but to a business opportunity that enhances and enriches her professional life.
