About this Speaker

Lauretta and Sharon Gavin are sisters who alongside their comedy double act, have a passion for healthy plant-based food - without being hippy dippy tree huggers! Sharon was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease just before her son was born over 7 years ago. She was covered from head to toe in a chronic rash and at times was wheelchair bound. After she split up with her husband, she was unable to look after her son alone so moved in with her sister who was also a single Mum. On a concoction of very toxic drugs and steroids Sharon decided she needed to find another way to get her health back and Lauretta was determined to do everything she could to help her. After extensive research and a lot of trial and error, Sharon found a high raw vegan diet with lots of fruits and vegetables made a life changing difference to her health. She is now completely rash free, is off all drugs and back running. In fact, she feels better than ever and has absolutely defied the doctors. Lauretta decided to go along for the ride and support her; She retrained as a natural vegan chef, focusing on plant-based food and nutrition. They are passionate about others finding their mojo too. So, in 2018 they set up The Detox Barn; a monthly yoga retreat with their homemade vegan food to inspire others. Set in the Suffolk countryside with open fires and idyllic country walks, this is the perfect place to get away from the demands of everyday living. The Detox Barn has been a huge success achieving five-star critically acclaimed reviews across the board. It has been featured in Good Housekeeping, Psychologies Magazine, The Evening Standard & Metro.
