It happened to Supa Nova Slom, a holistic practitioner known as hip-hops Medicine Man, whos penned The Remedy (Wellness Central), a detoxifying health guide out Wednesday (Apr. 7).
Slom was raised a vegetarian, but that lifestyle wasnt exactly cool in his urban neighborhood.
He was constantly teased by other kids and recalls, I got beat up for bringing my sprout sandwich and veggies to school.
Slom fought to stay healthy but a serious addiction to candy as a teen derailed his efforts.
One day, he decided to kick his sugar habit by detoxifying, so he put every green he could find into a gallon of water and drank the potion.
Hes been clean and on the green juice ever since.
Hes now on a mission to change health habits in hip-hop culture and mobilize urban youth into an army of wellness warriors.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
