LYNN WIESE SNEYD, AUTHOR is a freelance writer focusing on health and parenting issues. She earned a B.A. in English from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. In 1998, she received a writing fellowship at the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, Illinois, where she began work on her recently published book Holistic Parenting: Raising Children To A New Physical, Emotional And Spiritual Well-Being.
Lynn became interested in Holistic Medicine as a result of her husbandís degenerative nerve condition. After he endured seven years of unsuccessful conventional medical treatments, she decided to explore the world of Alternative Medicine. As she learned, she gradually incorporated changes in her familyís lifestyle. A pantry of organic foods, a kitchen without chemical cleaners and a microwave, and a medicine cabinet full of herbal and homeopathic remedies have become her familyís norms. In addition, her children no longer receive vaccinations. Her eight-year-old daughter has never been on an antibiotic, despite having childhood bouts with ear infections, sore throats, colds and flu.
After experiencing the simplicity and effectiveness of a holistic lifestyle, Lynn decided to write Holistic Parenting. The book explores such topics as Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine, Ayurveda, Organic Nutrition, Environmental Toxins, Vaccinations and Holistic Dentistry. She currently is co-authoring another health book with Holistic Practitioner David Russell.
Lynn resides in Tucson, Arizona with her husband and 2 children. She is the Community Relations Manager at the Barnes & Noble store and enjoys arranging booksignings with authors in all genres and promoting literacy within the community. She may be contacted by phone at (520) 575-8302 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lynn will speak with David Russell, Ph.D. on Holistic Parenting And Cancer Prevention.
