Sharyn Wynters – As Actress and Singer
Born in Philadelphia, PA. Sharyn’s introduction to music began at age four. She had fallen down the stairs while playing with her doll. The doll shattered and she began to cry. Her father lifted her into his arms and sang “Smile.”
As a kid, Sharyn would dance to the music of Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand.” As a young teen, she could be seen on the set of the Dick Clark Show. At 16, she discovered Jazz and tuned into “W.H.A.T.” radio, Friday with Frank.” On Saturdays, she would listen to radio announcer Joel Dorn, who played some of the greatest Jazz she had ever heard, but Sharyn wanted to hear Jazz live.
She started frequenting Jazz clubs in Philly like “Showboat” and “Peps” where she listened to the intimate performances of Lambert Hendrix & Ross, Mose Allison, Thelonious Monk, Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter and other Jazz greats. After High school, Sharyn won Miss Pennsylvania in the Miss World Contest.
This led to a modeling, TV and film career with credits including: Cat Girl on Bat Man, The Rockford Files, Kojak, The Odd Couple, Hook Line & Sinker, Westworld and Funny Lady. At 26, Sharyn cured herself of a degenerative disease with an intensive nutritional program. Sharyn studied and became a naturopathic doctor to fulfill a dream to help others. She now lectures nationwide on the many benefits of her healthy life style program.
At the turn of the millennium and especially after 9/11, Sharyn realized how fleeting life is and how precious each moment is to us all! She was compelled to look deeply into herself and ask if there was something else she always wanted to do that had not yet been realized. The passionate answer was, “to be a torch singer of romantic standards”. With that, this journey began. She was inspired to sing about love and that has been her quest for this album.

In my practice, I focus on nutrition and education. I spend time deciphering the fears that other doctors have put into people’s heads. An important part of healing is learning to listen to your inner voice. Healing is an adventure! A person’s illness is the beginning of their journey into the discovery of what it is for them to become healthier. Illness is our body trying to teach us how to be well.
A major health problem exists today… stress! Colitis, ulcers, digestive disorders, hypoglycemia, and nervous breakdowns are just some of the stress-related afflictions that result from our contemporary lifestyle. Everything is so fast-paced; instant information. These stresses put an unusual strain on the body, causing poor digestion, muscle tension, and many related problems. There is frustration. We’re losing control. As the problems continue to rise, they interfere with the body’s normal function and we get sick.
All systems must work together for a healthy body. It won’t happen unless the digestive system, nervous system, and all mental and emotional systems are operating in harmony with each other. If any one of these systems are functioning poorly, it causes strain on the other systems.
We must think of the body as a whole and observe the interaction of all body systems. Maintaining health means dealing with the body as a whole system. For the last 50 years, orthodox medicine has treated disease with an allopathic approach. For headaches, 47 varieties of aspirin. If we get an infection, bring on the antibiotics. For cancer, try radiation, chemotherapy, or even surgery. This is the way modern medicine treats disease, by attacking the system. The natural health practitioner, on the other hand, treats health as a state of constant renewal and the philosophy of regeneration.
90% of the diseases affecting humans are degenerative diseases resulting from the body’s life-sustaining processes of regeneration not being able to overcome the modern day influences like pesticides, depleted soils, chemical agriculture, processed foods, dirty air, contaminated water, bar code convenience foods and stress. There is no virus, “bug”, or outside invader for modern medicine to conquer with drugs. The problem is within the body and the answer lies in restoring the processes of good health. We must take responsibility for our own lives and our own bodies. Whether a minor headache or a cancerous tumor, it is up to each of us to find the imbalances indicated and restore our body to overall good health. The only one that can cure us is ourselves.
