Tina Shomburg is simple on the surface. She tones down her natural beauty with light touches of makeup, quiet clothing and uses a gentle voice when speaking. But do not be deceived, inside of her an entire universe is under constant expansion where worlds collide and explode only to be born anew. Her energy is all driven inward where she cultivates and harvests life force to fulfill her vision during a second chance at life. Nearly five years ago, at the age of 21, Tina was diagnosed with cancer. A crazy lifestyle with 60 hour work weeks, fueled by horrid nutrition and a professional thrust for achievements, led to her collapse. Tina lived a life of unbalanced eating, stress filled routines with a complete disconnection from family, friends and nature. Tina shares her story of approaching dis-ease from a “different” perspective. Today, at 25, her cancer is in full remission, she runs a successful software development firm, she spearheads two health awareness movements, she has reconnected with her family and has deep rooted personal relationships…and…she has gotten back in touch with nature. In Tina’s own words, “After I was diagnosed with cancer, I felt that there was a huge lack of education! No one taught me what causes cancer, what to eat and drink to strengthen my immune system, or how to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy. I had to meducate (to become educated about medicine) myself! I learned how to take charge of my own health and that was a very powerful feeling within a normally helpless situation.”  Two years of holistic cleansing, radical changes in habits including quitting cold turkey cigarettes and alcohol and six months of chemotherapy to overcome cancer prepared Tina to help others. Through Meducated.org and  live group events, she empowers young adults with cancer to explore the journey of self discovery this experience can offer. It is her personal belief, “nobody has to be a victim.” She also believes the system which immediately pops up around you when first diagnosed gives you no time to think and ask questions. Tina advocates for discovering the true root causes for cancer in a person’s life. The conditioning of school and work deny our ability to play and reach our inner child. Taking time to organize your life and prioritize what is most import for living happy is a key part of healing in her opinion. Building your own network of  people in your life who are there to support you emotionally, mentally and physically is critical according to Tina. The process of healing can become much like a war and the fun of living through the healing process is lost. Tina now sees the importance of reclaiming fun as part of healing, she aims to help others be able to do the same in their own process. Tina Shomburg transformed her life from seeking worldly accolades to manifesting her true dreams through a journey with cancer. Listen in as she tells us how she gets it all done today with a joyous smile and passionate laughter.

Linda Lizotte is the founder and director of Aging More Gracefully, Inc. (AMG), the number one nutraceutical company in the United States. Their core belief is, you are what you absorb. This has led Linda to create plant based solutions for chemicals such as sunscreen, skin moisturizers, body scrubs, etc. She openly speaks out against the limited training chemist receive when it comes to using natural sources as solutions instead of synthetic chemical ingredients which poison humans and kill our planet. Linda is a leading voice for cosmeceutical development using only ingredients which actually enrich the user. Exposing the ugly side of beauty where profits far out way health issues and long term impacts on the user’s health and DNA and the planet is where Linda invests most of her time. At AMG they promote the benefits of plant ingredients with no animal testing beauty products, plants do not change hormones or dna of the user, plants do not create biowaste and hazard to the environment. It what can be said to be a lifetime of research on skin toxins and how they destroy human health Linda found one ingredient in the amazon which catapulted the quality of her product ahead of anything else in her industry. She is a woman with a start up concept in a world of billion dollar titans; most of whom are men. By looking to serve the customer first she has cut a huge niche for her company and is continuing at a Hannibal’s pace towards more market share. Her story of focus and success is a case study for any entrepreneur looking to make it. Linda also believes we can better deal with emotions and gain spiritual awareness by becoming aware of our skin. To her a detox without bringing attention to the skin is not a complete detox. Chemicals reach the brain and the bloodstream directly through the skin because the skin has no liver to help filter the toxins. Skin is the largest human organ and it is too often ignored. The fundamentals behind Linda’s’ philosophy of “you are what you absorb,” could change how you select what goes on your body especially the Sunscreen you use. Linda does more than administer a successful company she works to expose what the big cosmetic industry is not telling you about the beauty chemicals found in streams, oceans and our blood. With a very responsive newsletter list Linda reaches thousands of loyal readers. She is dedicated to sharing awareness and tools to empower everyone for better decisions especially label education for skin care and topical applications products. Join us and Linda Lizotte, female entrepreneur, business mastermind and social activist who is taking on a huge industry by offering a superior alternative with real world health benefits.
