I have an exciting announcement for all my longtime friends and followers!!
When I was in my early 20’s, I used to diet like crazy, consume tons of protein, and kill myself at the gym. By the time I was in my late 20’s, I stopped working out altogether because I had no energy and felt like shit!
I went to several doctors and was diagnosed with IBS, then ulcerative colitis, then Crohn’s disease. I swear I don’t even think the doctors knew what was wrong with me, but they wanted to cut me open and I refused!
Instead I decided to drastically change my diet and lifestyle. I went completely raw, vegan overnight and ate nothing but organic fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, cold pressed oils, healthy fats, and superfoods. I did a green juice fast, parasite cleanse, and heavy metal cleanse.
I incorporated probiotics, kefir, and cultured vegetables into my diet. I started practicing yoga and stopped taking all prescription drugs.
Within 6 months I had completely reversed my symptoms and adopted an entirely new outlook on what was healthy for me! I stopped counting calories and most importantly, ate CARBS! (The good kind, not the white, refined stuff!!)
Now here I am in my 40’s and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for choosing NOT to have surgery and investing the time to truly heal my body instead. It took EFFORT, and it wasn’t convenient, but I did it and I’m so grateful to have energy and stamina to enjoy life, even now in my “prime!”
Although I’m no longer a 100% “raw vegan” I am still a vegetarian and try to stick to an organic, all-natural diet without pesticides, GMO’s, or food made in a factory! I cook most of my own meals, and make superfood shakes almost every morning. It’s fun to prepare food that fuels your body and makes you feel incredible!
I’m FINALLY writing a book about my healing journey, so I can share my story with others! Thanks to an amazing editor who is pushing me every step of the way, I will finally have this project complete before the end of this year! I can’t wait to share it with you all!
