Are we really what we eat? Sequoia knows from his own experience that our eating lifestyle directly influences our health. When switching his diet some years ago, his body reacted with fourteen blood clots in his right arm, and one in his brain. As doctors were not able to diagnose the underlying problem, this ultimately led to the removal of his rib. But this story has a happy end – thanks to nutrition, smart data, and Sequoia’s curious mind, he was able to restore his health. Now, he helps others to create individualized nutrition by following a diet that is not only healthy, but that can also save the planet. Sequoia studied herbal medicine, psychology, was featured as a nutrition consultant in News Leben and has been a Forbes contributor for entrepreneurs. Now, he is also powering a circular economy by being a visionary sustainable leader and the pioneer behind a social media influencers, a software solution for healthy nutrition EONOS.
