I am a Healer. I am a Medicine Man. I am a Health Warrior.

My name is Misha Hyman. In the simplest of forms, I am a healer. Since I was born I have known that my purpose on this planet was to serve and to help others. From massage, to life coaching, to cooking people healthy and nutritious meals, healing has always been my calling.

Some believe that you can only heal yourself [from chronic diseases] through medication and altering your lifestyle. I agree with them on one account. You can change your lifestyle, and heal your bodies and minds through revamping your lifestyle, but you do not need medication for every single ailment that you chronically struggle with.

We have forgotten that food is medicine. To summarize my father, the 12 time New York Time Best Selling author, Dr. Mark Hyman, “Healing begins when we take off our white coats and put on our white aprons.” This simply means that we need to start healing our chronic illnesses in the kitchen and not in the doctor’s office.

From the east to the far west, and from all the corners of the world, people have been curing diseases and ailments through a myriad of holistic, and natural remedies since antiquity.

The people who gave out such medicines, or natural therapies, were the first form of healers, some would even call them the first doctors.

But there were no medical schools for them to attend; there was no training worth hundreds of thousands of dollars for them to spend their family’s earnings on. The way of the medicine man was a gift, a calling. They were healers in the purest of forms.

There was no formal education that could have taught them everything they knew. A shaman, or a medicine man passed down his teachings from generation to generation. This was the schooling of our first doctors.

I am not a doctor, nor do I play one. But I am a healer. As long as I can remember, I have been either feeding people healthy and nutritious food, and doing my form of bodywork, stretching with high heat, and a deep touch.

However, I am not just a healer. I am a Health Warrior. In a time where companies such as Monsanto try to poison us with harmful pesticides and food industry continuing to brain wash the public by wrongfully informing us about what is “good for us”, healers and “health warriors” have lost their collective voice.

Health Warriors need to band together and illuminate a path of ultimate health for people to follow while showing people that the way to optimum health is not through struggling through a myriad of diets and exercising your way out of bad food choices. There are simple rules, simple guidelines to have optimum health. A true warrior has to learn to see that, but that is why it is a war.

By creating The Health Warrior Project, I am embarking on a mission to change the way people view the battle against their health. Once you are a health warrior it becomes fun and exciting, and even easy to eat, love, and play at your highest vibration.

The path to become a health warrior is a way of life.

It is not a diet, and it is not a fad.

Health warriors have been around for thousands of years. They are the medicine men. They are the shamans. They are the people who, throughout history, have been there to help people in times of both spiritual and health crises.

My mission in life is how to teach everyone who struggles with weight issues, chronic health problems, and diabetes how to radically change their way of life by cooking food that is delicious and absolutely, fundamentally healthy for you. Once you can cook for yourself, you will begin to cook for those you love. Once I teach you to become a health warrior, your community will watch your transformation and they will want to know what your secret sauce is.

All the answers to your optimum health is within reach, all you have to do is ask for help. All you have to do is wake up and know that you have the ability to change your life forever. The fight against chronic illness and obesity is daunting, but once you have trained to become a Health Warrior, there will be nothing that can stop you. There will be nothing that can stand in the way of your optimum health.
