Myriam Masihy, originally from Chile, is a consumer investigative reporter for Telemundo 51 and NBC6 South Florida. She has dedicated her 21-year television career to addressing viewers’ concerns and working to solve problems in the community. In 2017, she was diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder, and she underwent immunosuppression therapy. Despite being told by her rheumatologist that changing her diet would have no effect on her disease, Myriam decided to make lifestyle changes after doing her own research. Two weeks after switching to a plant-based diet, her inflammation markers and triglycerides had dropped to normal levels. As she improved her sleep and quality of life, she added exercise and stress management to her daily routine. In September 2021, she began shooting the documentary series Comida Como Cura. The first documentary in Spanish is now available on Telemundo 51’s streaming channels, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV. An English version will be available shortly on NBC6’s streaming channels. She is a graduate of the Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate Program. Follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
