74. Using Nature to Take Health Back
Anthony Gucciardi is a natural health and self-development author, speaker, and activist whose writings have appeared in USA Today and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling books and top 100 websites. After creating the website NaturalSociety.com in 2010, Anthony’s writings on health and wellness have reached tens of millions of readers worldwide.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Diagnosed with Lyme disease seven or eight years ago, Anthony followed his doctor’s orders until the megadoses of steroids “made me feel 100 times worse than before.” He passionately plunged into a search for natural remedies. Soon he felt “radically better,” and he launched his deep dive into natural health.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Summoning the courage to think for himself, rejecting college and ignoring warnings he couldn’t succeed, Anthony set out on his own path. “I think it reflects this idea I’ve always had: that there’s no other option than living with passion and doing what I want to do.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“I’m on a mission every day in my life — and I believe everyone should be. I’m obsessed with the idea of giving value instead of just taking and absorbing. It’s so simple, once you live with a purpose, helping someone, you’re going to have a better quality of life.”
On His Bookshelf
“All of Tony Robbins’ materials are great for one simple reason: they actually make you think. He just brings you out of the box a little bit,” Anthony says. He also draws inspiration from Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Work Week and creator of the podcast, “The Tim Ferriss Show.”
