Get Metaphorically Naked with the Green and Healthy Author of Gardening Nude!

Warrenville, IL (PressExposure) January 05, 2009 -- Gardening Nude is a common sense guide as well as a motivational self-help book written by author Shawna Lee Coronado; a writer who is passionate about greening and healthy-living. Coronado’s mission is to inspire the world to get healthier, happier, and greener.

In explaining her book title, Coronado says, “The term, ‘gardening nude,’ is a metaphoric expression which means to strip away the negative excuses and feelings, get off your fanny, and get out into nature to improve your health and lifestyle. It is all about living life happy and to the fullest.

“My goal,” Coronado says, “is to touch as many lives as I can in a positive way – showing people that they can make a difference in their communities and for themselves by practicing a green, healthy, and less-stressed lifestyle.”

For more than ten years, Coronado lived with severe stress and acute health issues. Coronado’s constant pain, allergies, and asthma led her to take more than a dozen prescriptions per day. Miserable, ill, and desperate, Coronado took on the medical establishment and built the Get Your Green On Healthy Philosophy in hopes of finding a way to improve her own mental and physical health. The more she practiced her green philosophy, the more apparent it became that her plan is a miracle cure for an unhealthy lifestyle. Coronado now takes only three medications per day and feels better than she ever has.

Gardening Nude features the Get Your Green On Healthy Philosophy, a three-part system which includes a Health Plan, Greening and Conservation Guide, and Building A Green Community Plan. This philosophy shows that becoming mentally and physically healthier is a snap when you are living a green lifestyle. Gardening Nude teaches readers how the combination of reduced stress, green living, and building relationships can create a positive mental attitude at work, at home, and in life.

The guide book includes features about real-life people and corporations who are living the life and setting a green example for the world to follow. Quoted in Gardening Nude are authors, medical, and conservation experts such as Andrew Weil, M.D.; David Edelberg, M.D.; Nirmala Arora, M.D.; Al Gore; and Richard Louv, Ph.D.

As a special and challenging surprise, Coronado includes a mysterious hidden message in the book. Clues to the secret message can be found on the cover of the book. Coronado challenges readers, “I have hidden a secret message within the book for all to discover - find the message and get started on healthy living.”

Coronado's heartwarming story, energetic personality, and educated guidance encourages readers to build a healthier and greener lifestyle.

Coronado lives with her family in Warrenville, Illinois where she “gets her green on” by spending her summers outdoors gardening with her little black dog, Harry the Pug.
