Sue Ward


Sue Ward has a passion for human health and is committed to helping people lead healthier lives through better nutrition, physical activity and Natural Living. Consequently it peaked her interest when she read about Sanoviv Medical Institute in an Alternative Medicine magazine. She decided to go check it out and did the Detox & Rejuvenation Program. She found that her philosophy and the philosophy of Sanoviv was so much alike the she felt “Sanoviv was my destiny.” And true to her dream, she joined the Sanoviv family in 2009. With a brief year off in 2013, she brings much expertise and knowledge to our staff. She enjoys teaching and sharing her ‘knowhow’ with clients and finds it particularly rewarding to see positive changes and hear success stories from the people she has worked with. Sue also shares her expertise as a lecturer at international conferences.

Sue Ward’s philosophy is the “moderation” concept. Everything in excess is opposed to nature. We need to look to nature for answers to basic nutrition (and health) questions. High-quality whole foods should be the foundation of everyone’s diet.

Sue believes in giving back to the community. Consequently she volunteered with Students Run LA which is an organization that takes ‘at risk’ youth and trains them for the L.A. marathon. She also volunteered for 10 years helping the Children Affected by Aids Foundation.
