Sharon realized a lifelong dream in 2002 when she opened the doors of The Essence of Health in Duluth, Minnesota. Her interest in natural healing took root 25 years ago as a result of years of perpetual candida infections that traditional physicians could not heal. Taking it upon herself to find a way to cure the candida, Sharon began a lifelong journey that gave birth to a passion for the study of nutrition and natural healing. A former teacher and business consultant, Sharon was able to begin to follow her dream when she was granted the opportunity to manage a natural foods store. Finally the opportunity arose and The Essence of Health was born. Sharons passion is to bring education and information to the public so that we can each take control of our health and well-being.
