About Shirley Potasz by


Shirley Potasz, M.A.
Certified Nutrition Consultant
Producer, seminars

Shirley is a vivacious educator - holding workshops, hosting speakers and publishing videos, newsletters plus a web-site - - in the field of nutrition. Her specialties include natural food preparation, skin care, changing one's lifestyle and public relations.

Medical doctors request her to organize their conventions in complementary medicine and serve as PR director. She constantly learns the latest discovery and builds on her lifetime of experience.

Her career began on TV, included a nutrition show, then progressed to co-anchor a radio show, teach self-improvement classes, win talent and beauty contests, such as “Miss Catalina” and 2nd at the Los Angeles Regional of “Miss Universe.” She earned teaching credentials in multiple subjects: pre-school to high school plus adult, and produced “Nutrition for Kids” and “How to serve the Elderly.” While her natural product center soon dawned, her novel research on nutrition and lifestyle for patients of Lawrence Badgley, M.D. led to producing health education materials and a video, “Life Begets Life.” It earned her a master degree in educational technology. She went on to earn certification as a “Hippocrates Health Institute” instructor; was elected to the National Health Federation board, and worked to improve the group and its conventions. As Chapter President for San Francisco, she organized monthly meetings and special dinners, where she spoke about state and national, health legislation. For each event she also arranged for a foremost researcher in nutrition to lecture. Recent videos and audios are “Living Foods, Healing and Longevity” and “Simple and Easy Raw Food Prep.”
