We are delighted to welcome Agi Masta to Team Barannes! Agi is working part-time covering our busy times of the day at either Broad Street or Colomberie. Agi is now a writer and public speaker and the rest of her weeks are spent speaking and preparing for her forthcoming book launch.
Agi was first introduced to Barannes over 2 years ago, not long after having one ovarian surgery following diagnosis with an aggressive form of cancer. Since that time Agi has transformed her life and cured herself of cancer naturally. Her book 'Juice your Cancer' tells the story. We are proud to be part of Agi's journey and to have played a small part in her recovery. It is also fantastic that Agi is now part of our small team and can help others who find themselves in a similar situation.
Agi has always led a healthy vegetarian life, she is a non-smoker and doesn't drink. You can imagine the shock of discovering she had cancer. Being given a 50% chance, Agi decided to take her treatment into her own hands. This was started by a meeting at Barannes with a friend who introduced her to juice, particularly wheatgrass. From that point Agi started an extreme detox, starting with wheatgrass and then introducing carrot, beetroot, kale and other vegetables. After 12 weeks her scans and blood tests showed a remarkable improvement. This was 2 years ago and she has been cancer free ever since.
Agi's aim is spread the message about how vegetable based juicing can transform your life. You can read Agi's full story in her book, which is being launched on 26th July 2018 in Jersey. Pre-orders of the book can be placed here. We will also be selling the book at our shops when it becomes available. You can also find out more by following Agi Masta on Facebook.
Agi is supporting two local charities; Macmillan Cancer Jersey Support and Londoloza Trust, and HGiving in London. They will each receive a donation from all books sold during pre-launch and will benefit from the raffle being held at the book launch event, at the Club Hotel and Spa.
