#WellnessWednesday Feature...Rishon "DJ Mz Stylez" Carter


Our #WellnessWednesday feature of the week is the gorgeous Rishon "DJ Mz Stylez" Carter aka @RishonHeals. Rishon is as she puts it originally from "Yah". She was born and raised in the heart of Harlem, New York City and moved to Chicago a few years ago making it her home.

Rishon is a studying Naturopath and owner of Livit Every Day Holistic Health and Wellness which is a holistic health one stop shop on her website (www.liviteveryday.com). Rishon attended Everglades University pursuing a B.A in Natural Science/Alternative Medicine.



She states:

"I believe the herbs and veggies are for our healing". 

We definitely agree that all of the wonderful Plant Based food given to us by the creator is our medicine and what makes living the Plant Fueled Fit Life so rewarding.

When we asked Rishon what Plant Based living means to her she stated:


"Plant based living is certainly the move as the other stuff is poisonous to say the very least". 

"I made the switch when I gave birth to my son. 

"I just wanted to make healthier decisions for him than my parents made for me, further more when you know better you're supposed to do better".



She goes on to add:

"Once I started gaining the knowledge about the amazing benefits of a plant based diet there was no turning back". 

"Yet, with increased knowledge comes increased responsibility"


This is indeed true. That's what makes this a lifestyle and not just a diet fad that can be picked up or put down. 

In closing she says:

"I just want to help save my people from the ills"

So do we. This is why we featured wonderful melanated people every week.
