Description: Akin Olokun is a Los Angeles-based Herbalist, Holistic Living Educator, Vegan & Living Foods Scientist, and the founder of Earth's Healing Cafe—one of the first all-organic juiceries and herbal farmacies in Chicago, Illinois. Over the past decade, Akin has helped hundreds of people bring their bodies into homeostasis (balance and harmony) through the use of natural and indigenous healing modalities. Akin was born on farmland in the beautiful mountains of Southern Poland. His grandfather was a beekeeper who cultivated medicinal plants, flowers, and fruits. Akin spent his childhood playing in the garden, climbing trees, and picking berries and other native foods. At 16, he relocated to the United States. Four years later, while residing in Oakland, California, he started an herbal company that served as an outlet for over 30 of the therapeutic herbal compounds that he had developed. Soon after moving to Chicago, Illinois, the company evolved into Earth’s Healing Cafe, becoming one of the City’s first establishments to carry raw, organic cold-pressed juices, superfood smoothies, living food, and a wide assortment of botanicals from all corners of the world. In 2014, the company grew to two locations–on Chicago’s North Side, and in the heart of the busy city. Earlier, in his late teenage years, Akin had begun an inner journey of Self-Discovery which led him to the path of Advaita Vedanta/(Sanskrit:"Non-dualism"), and eventually, the realization of the meaning of Life. Akin shares the message of Natural Health and Hygiene, Simplicity, Mindfulness, and Intelligent Living through various outlets including social media and direct interactions with individuals.
