Spices for healthy living

About Us

Dr. Lois Kehl and Mark Kryzer are the co-founders of “Spice Your Life.”  They both share a passion for fine food and for the foods of the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, and the spices that make them so delicious and healthy.

Mark has lived and worked in the Middle East and South Asia for 15 years managing foreign aid and development programs. He has always had a love for the people, culture, and cuisine of the many countries where spices uniquely define the foods that characterize each culture. Mark continues to travel to the region and its many spice souks (bazaars) to discover and bring you the healthy spices offered on the “Spice Your Life” website.

Lois is a TMJ & Orofacial Pain Specialist and neuroscientist who has spent a lifetime researching and treating common pain conditions. During her academic career as an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota she published her research findings in a variety of peer-reviewed journals including Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Pain.  She currently treats patients  at Minnesota Head & Neck Pain Clinic in St. Paul. Dr. Kehl has a strong interest in health and nutrition and wants to share her knowledge of how spices can be used to improve general health and well being. Modern research supports the health benefits of spices, many of which are offered on this website.
