About My Guest

My guest for this episode is Maryam Henein. Maryam Henein is an investigative journalist, activist, filmmaker and entrepreneur. She directed the documentary "Vanishing of the Bees" and is founder of www.HoneyColony.com.  Following a near-fatal pedestrian versus car crash that dragged her for 49 feet, which broke her leg, vertebrae and several ribs and necessitated a titanium rod for her recovery in 2002, she researched issues of health and nutrition to help her in her recovery and became aware of colony collapse disorder.  Henein directed the 2010 documentary, "Vanishing of the Bees" narrated by Ellen Page.  Since the release of Vanishing of the Bees, Henein has become an outspoken advocate of bees and bee colonies, non-GMO foods, and the release of pesticides into the environment. She is the founder of HoneyColony Inc., a member supported online magazine that hosts a number of optimized-health and investigative writers called "Hive Advisers" and aims at empowering you to be your own best health advocate.  She continues to work on projects involving bees and contamination of the food supply.  She recently released her eBook titled "Learn How One Digital Nomad is During Her Autoimmune Disorder" available on Amazon.com.  She has written hundreds of hard-hitting articles over the span of her 20 year career. She is also a yogi, dancer, health nut, and voracious bookworm.
