Allison Melody, host of The Food Heals Podcast and owner of Melody Productions, is an eco–entrepreneur with a passion for film, fitness and food. Through her podcast, she brings together experts in nutrition and healing to teach listeners the best-kept natural secrets to health and happiness. For the past eleven years, Allison has also directed, produced and edited documentary films, PSA’s, commercials and viral videos for clients on the topics of social justice, human rights and holistic health.
The topics she addresses through her work are powerful and heart-centered and focus on Holistic Health, Social Justice, Human Rights and Animal Rights. They reflect her passion for creating positive change in people and the communities they serve.
At the age of 26, Allison endured the devastating loss of both her parents to cancer after long and challenging battles. Witnessing her mother and father suffer so intensely and needlessly from a cure that brought more pain than the disease, Allison soon dedicated her life to finding a better way to heal. She watched in disbelief as doctors prescribed drug after drug, observed her parents’ hair fall out, their rapidly aging faces, and their exceedingly diminishing vitality. The tragedy instilled in her an unwavering passion for nutritional medicine, and propelled her into the world of holistic health and alternative healing. Allison’s firm commitment to natural health is further evidenced by her achievement of a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology.
Allison is currently in the process of directing Food Heals, a documentary starring NBA Champion, actor, philanthropist and vegan champion John Salley, director and star of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, Joe Cross, and author of I Forgot to Die, Khalil Rafati, to name a few.
Suzy Hardy is the co-host of The Food Heals Podcast and is passionate about healing the body with nutrition and holistic medicine rather than drugs after a high school injury thrust her into the world of holistic health and healing. She learned first hand at the age of 16 that western doctors didn’t always know the answers.
After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in Psychology, she decided to follow her dreams of becoming a professional actress. Along the way she also became a licensed massage therapist (because she always enjoyed working for herself) and has had a thriving healing practice while she studied acting and writing.
Suzy found her way into podcasting because she has also been doing voiceover since she was a child. She has voiced over 60 audiobooks in the past two years and her voice can be heard on the radio, in film and cartoons and of course, on The FoodHeals Podcast. As an actress, she has performed on both stage and screen, from the classics to improvisation and just completed her first feature length screenplay.
Suzy lives with her husband Michael and dog Obi in Hollywood.
