Healing from physical illness and emotional pain isn’t easy but transformation IS possible. You are never alone in your struggles and there are so many great resources to support you through the process. I am so excited to bring you this conversation with my friend Tara, because she knows about this kind of healing first hand.

Tara Mackey is the founder and CEO of The Organic Life, a successful holistic and sustainable living platform, and is a widely recognized activist with a tribe of over 1 million followers. She founded the organic skincare company Genetix and is the #1 best-selling author of Cured by Nature and WILD Habits.

Mackey, who has a background in psychology and genetics, left a coveted position at Weill Cornell Medical College in 2011 to travel to California to explore natural healing, yoga and meditation. That same year she began utilizing holistic techniques to heal her chronic illnesses, going cold turkey off of fourteen daily medications, and healing herself naturally. She has been Rx-drug free for nearly a decade and has been on a conscious quest to move humanity in a more sustainable, healthy, and holistic direction ever since.

Tara has recently launched her own original music, and taken her motivational speaking and music career worldwide. She has been a featured guest at many events, podcasts, blogs, TV, news and radio shows.

Mackey was named “an accomplished musician” by Forbes and “a powerful voice in the smart, sexy, sustainable movement” by Coco Eco Magazine. Tara’s been recognized with numerous awards and nominations for her activism and entrepreneurship by giants like Oprah Magazine, Teen Vogue, Women’s Health, ABC, CBS, the United States Senate and many more.
