About me

I was introduced to The Natural Way about 5 years ago when my children decided to go from a vegetarian to a vegan lifestyle. I was an asthma sufferer until I was 23 years old and have been on cortisone treatments as well as antibiotics for a great part of my life. I also had a hiatus hernia which caused major digestive problems.When I started juicing and eating The Natural Way my problems gradually disappeared and I can say that I am totally free of any illnesses or hormone imbalances.

The Natural Way brought about a major change in my Christian Counselling practice, as I began to realize that diet plays a major role in Bipolar Depression, as in any emotional disturbances.I run a Home for Abandoned babies where all our babies are put onto an excellent, dairy-free, diet. So many people comment on how well our babies look and how peaceful and calm the Home is.

They usually sleep 11-12 hours per night due to their diet, we believe!

About us

In 1991 Mary-Ann and Mark Shearer opened their first shop in Craighall Park, Johannesburg. It was called “Mary-Ann’s Wholefood Emporium” – It started out as a health food store supplying preservative-free dried fruit and light vegetarian meals and the dream was to have a place filled with ‘natural’ foods, clothing, furniture, energy-saving gadgets and a whole host of eco/natural lifestyle products. .. .
