Witnessing her mother and father — in short succession — lose their lives to cancer, Allison Melody endured significant trauma in her 20s. Why did their bodies fail them? Why did the doctors have no answers?

This tragic loss instilled in Allison an unwavering passion for nutrition and propelled her into the world of holistic health and healing.

She vowed to honor her parents’ memory by dedicating her life to finding a way to heal the body naturally. After interviewing hundreds who have healed themselves of chronic and degenerative diseases for her film Powered By Plants and podcast Food Heals, Allison now firmly believes that the body has the ability to heal itself when given the tools it needs to do so.

Tune in to Part 2 of Ask Alli to hear:

- Why her ex used to call Alli "Country Club"

- What Multiple Sclerosis is and how it affected Alli's mom

- The horrible teen experience that caused Alli give up red meat for good

- The "cure" that killed her mother before it killed the cancer

- Is it true that "Time Heals all Wounds?"

- Why a patchouli smelling doctors "office" did not cut it for Alli's baby boomer dad

- What losing both her parents to cancer taught Alli about disease, life, and love

What does it mean to cleanse? For many, the word throws up images of green juices and fasting. But that’s not quite accurate. You might be surprised to learn that you can cleanse in a gentler way. But you also need to go beyond diet if you want to really reset your body.

Elissa Goodman looks 20 years younger than her age; you might think she’s been blessed with great genes. But, she was not the healthiest child. She had a low immune system and was always sick. She got every type of virus, digestive issues, tonsillitis, chickenpox, chronic fatigue - you name it, she had it. To make matters worse, she felt unworthy compared to her high-achieving Type A personality parents.

Fast-forward to adulthood, Elissa went to college, got into advertising, and climbed that corporate ladder because she was determined to make her parents proud. But she wasn’t following her passion or purpose. She just worked. And got sicker. And one day she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

She knew that this was because she’d been sick most of her life and that her lymphatic system was full of toxins that she’d been unable to clear. But she hadn’t thought of the emotional aspect. The doctors she saw first just talked of chemo and freezing her eggs. But one of them was different. He sat her down and asked: Are you happy? Are you doing what you love? It was a turning point.

Elissa realized how miserable she’d been in her job and how much she disliked herself. She knew something had to change. She went 100% vegan, she started doing yoga, she went into talk therapy, and do emotional release work. She got rid of her cancer, but the radiation caused hypothyroidism. Then she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and celiac (two autoimmune conditions). And then her husband died of cancer. It was like a cascade of traumatic life events. That’s when she decided to go back to school and learn about nutrition so she could help her daughters stay healthy.

And that was it - she never looked back. She became a cleanse expert to help as many people as possible get healthy the easy way. Like her 1-week soup cleanse, which contains 45 different vegetables, is totally vegan and free from anything processed or GMO. She helps her clients to reset their body and brain so they can rejuvenate, re-energize, heal, and maintain a new, healthy lifestyle long-term.

Here are some of Elissa’s tips to reset your body:

  • Juicing - a fantastic way to get all those vitamins straight into your cells
  • Smoothies - packed with healthy fiber which helps cleanse your digestive system
  • Vegetables, vegetables, vegetables - the more the better (especially dandelion greens, cruciferous veg, and celery)
  • Take a good quality superfood powder

Mae grew up in Northern California, learning many of her life lessons in her parent’s organic garden. She believes health and vitality- the ability to nourish our bodies, minds, and spirit begins with our simplest daily choices. Because of this, Mae enjoys designing rituals from routines, finding wonder and presence in nature, and doing challenging, meaningful work.

Mae graduated from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo with a BS in Animal Science and Nutrition. As an R&D scientist, she studied temperature monitoring to improve animal wellbeing, decreasing the overuse of antibiotics in the dairy industry and within our food system. This work led Mae to study human health and change psychology 3 years later, ultimately meeting Drew Canole in 2010 and Djamel Bettahar in 2012 - the founders of organifi.

Now serving as organifi’s CEO and a member of the founding team, Mae brings over 15 years of experience in the agriculture and health industry. Since being founded in 2014, she has played a key role in organifi making INC. 5000’s fastest growing companies list and being awarded Forbes Great Places to Work more than 4 years in a row.

Mae lives in San Diego, California with her husband and loves playing pickleball, paddleboarding, birding, discovering new local coffee shops, and the amazing foodie culture.
