The books Fit For Life, by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond, and the Mucus-less Diet Healing System by Professor Arnold Ehret, changed my life. After reading them, my entire perspective on the association of dis-ease and the consumption of animal proteins changed.”

Davis said: “Exercise plays a big role in my life and in my ability to work the hours I have to put in. I don’t do yoga, but my desire is to get on a really good yoga program. I love to meditate, and at some point in my day will close my eyes for even a brief moment. I love massages and wish I could have one daily. In terms of overall fitness, I love to create my own exercise challenges, like now I’m on the planks and it’s incredible to me to set a goal and force myself to accomplish it.”
