Susan Ershler, the fourth American woman to climb the Seven Summits, sat down with us to talk about her experience in accomplishing what only a handful of people have ever done.
She began a 10-year journey of mental and physical training with her husband, and through the process overcame cancer, setbacks, and many obstacles in reaching the Seven Summits.
In the end, those 10 years were rewarded in a 25-minute victory on top of Mt. Everest.
The right diet and quality nutritional supplements can do a lot for a healthy life. However, the health of the mind and soul may be as or more important than what you eat.
Susan’s experiences will help you fine tune your mind and have the motivation to accomplish your dreams. You can also go here to check out her book, “Together on Top of the World,” which tells the story of the first couple to climb the fabled Seven Summits.
