Alyssa is not only an award winning singer/songer writer & comedian, she also has been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and says she felt as if she had swallowed a nuclear bomb and her insides were blown apart. She was positive that she was being punished for something she must have done in a past life or something.

Her condition fluctuated for years at times causing her to lose the ability to walk with painful ulcerations both internally and externally. While bedridden she would rely on her humor & her husband's love to survive this painful ordeal.

Alyssa took the time to uncover the triggers to her illness and after much trial and error discovered that a vegan diet, by the suggestion of a close friend Congressman Dennis Kucinich, and restricting her sugar intake would change her health dramatically.

She says: "Overcoming Crohn's is different for everyone - for me it's been about knowing when to say I need help. It's been about seeing my pattern and changing them, letting go of all judgements and loving myself, trying different healing modalities, coming to know what works for me and being ready to be well and independent, breathing, visualizations, music that makes me feel my aliveness & brings me back from despair, being in nature &, most importantly diet & eliminating sugar."
