Cori Brackett, author, producer, director, documentary maker. Howard Straus’ guest on The Power of Natural Healing, Monday, July 1, 2013 Cori Brackett loves life and celebrates every moment. She understands the expansive power of love and is devoted to helping individuals empower themselves through knowledge, wisdom and personal choice. Discovering the ability to listen to one's own body as well as gaining access to individual intuition, is what she believes, ultimately, can create amazing healing effects within the body and the spirit. After having been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2002, Cori Brackett found herself falling into a deep pit of doctor's appointments and medications, while continuing to get worse. Eventually, she found herself in a wheelchair with double vision and slurred speech. Slowly, she learned to maintain the balancing act between pushing herself to get better and having the patience to accept her then-current limitations. Hungry for knowledge and a clue to her symptoms, she stumbled upon some information linking aspartame to MS-like symptoms. As she had been a fairly heavy consumer of aspartame and aspartame-containing products (an average of a six-pack/day of diet soda for twenty years) she thought there might be something to this and proceeded to investigate. What resulted from her investigation was the searing and heart-stopping documentary, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, its sequel, Sweet Remedy: The World Reacts and her multi-media memoir, Through the Shadows. Today, she lives a happy, healthy and authentic life and enjoys speaking to groups around the country and shares her knowledge through guests on her regular radio show who can help you envision a better world, as well as providing the tools need to discover that better life.
