About the Author

Dr. Cheryl Rock is an Author, Musician, Martial Artist, Metaphysician and Professor as well as a Food Scientist who specializes in Nutritional Biochemistry. Her areas of emphasis are the studies of (1) Ethnomedicine and (2) Phytonutrients and their effects on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), Colon Cancer and Type 2 Diabetes.

Additionally, she specializes in martial science; an integration of internal Martial Arts from a dietary approach, with principles of Food Science, Martial Arts philosophy as well as Bagua Metaphysics. Specifically, she utilizes the Bagua Energy Map and the Five-Element Theory as a framework to educate people of how Eastern (i.e., Bagua) and Western (i.e., Food Science – Nutritional Biochemistry) concepts intersect through diet.

Her philosophy of life is to help others experience holistic health and wellness practices in their daily lives through transformation and self-mastery. She seeks to help others achieve this goal as a result of her own personal experiences and principles as a practitioner of Korean Martial Arts (Hapkido) (1st Dan Black Belt) as well as Brazilian Jujitsu.
