Despite ongoing medical treatment, no course of action relieved the inflammation that caused shoulder pain which plagued him for more than 10 years. In April 2012, he was introduced him to Juice Plus+, a whole food based nutritional supplement, and within two months, the shoulder pain disappeared. A shift in his thinking about the relationship between nutrition and disease occurred, and now his passion is to inspire healthy living around the world by educating others about the benefits of eating whole foods. Currently, he lives, studies, writes and swims on Galveston Island, Texas. Listen to Mick’s interview with Anya Sophia Mann.
