"Thank you for your interest in Phoenix Rising. My name is Unita and I am the Phoenix Rising. I am passionate about plant based eating to nourish and heal the body. Ten years ago I was a junk food vegetarian on 10 daily medications. Now I am healthy, strong, and medication free. Like the Phoenix I have risen from the ashes. Let Phoenix Rising help you do the same. (view my photos to the left)

Phoenix Rising was born out of my passion to help others achieve optimal wellness. Prescription medication can be eliminated in most case by following a plant based nutrient dense diet. Do you want to transition to a clean Whole Foods diet? Would you like help incorporating more nutrient dense plant based food into your diet?  Let Phoenix Rising  help you on your journey to optimal wellness". Unita Cheeseman

Dear Phoenix Rising Health and Wellness

Phoenix Rising Health is the Best Doctor in Town

"For 4 years I'd suffered with debilitating muscle and joint pain, crippling fatique, fainting spells, and embarrassing emotionalism. Three different doctors and a 5 day hospital stay resulted in me being told it was in my head, something I was doing to myself, I need a psychiatrist. One visit with Unita solved every symptom. I am ecstatic, I finally feel normal again. Phoenix Rising Health gave me back my health and my life. Thank you, Unita!"
