I'm Vegan For the Health Benefits
I had been on two medicines for diabetes, two for blood pressure, and one for cholesterol for about 1-1/2 years when I heard about a Nutrition Boot Camp that focused on Raw Foods, strictly plant-based. I went to the four-week Boot Camp and by the end of it I had lost 20 pounds and was completely off all five medicines!
I am proof that the human body can truly heal itself if given the chance through proper nutrition. Needless to say, I was convinced and have stuck with the plant based diet since then, and try to eat mostly raw foods. I continue to lose weight and my doctor is astounded that I'm off my medicines. I'm a convert for life!
Congratulations on making such a huge and positive change in your life. Your story is a great example of how much diet impacts our lives and how much more energized and happy we can feel when we're released from animal proteins.
I've heard countless stories of people who had degenerative diseases and were able to cure them by choosing a plant-based diet that focuses on whole foods. No matter what illness you have or what position you find yourself in, you can change it quickly by simply choosing to try better foods. Congratulations on going vegan for the health benefits.
