Scientists: Plant-Based Diets Can Cure Chronic Diseases

A recent article in Science Daily extols the latest research suggesting that a plant-based diet can cure and prevent chronic diseases.

I saw this article from Mercy for Animals to share with you. I have personally discovered the fountain of youth is in the plant based whole food lifestyle. This is not a diet for a short time this is a lifestyle for a lifetime. I believe from my results that once fully adopted brings incredible benefits to all bodies.

Myself I had a massive uterine fibroid that grew over several years to be so big it was crazy embarrassing. To note: I thought I ate well with only small amounts of animal consumption and rare if ever fast food e.g. I have not been to McDonald’s or those types of places for many years (10+).  As much as possible I ate mostly organic foods, I did yoga, hot yoga, gym workouts, weights, circuit training and my weight kept climbing and the fibroid kept growing and my weight didn’t move much. My body wasn’t well and other elements were showing such as high cholesterol levels and weight gain.

My doctor sent me to variety of tests and options for removing this beast that had grown in me. For me surgery was going to be my last option and the final piece that fell into play was to be a Vegan to turn to a full whole food plant based lifestyle.

I kept thinking why is this growing in me, what is causing this, something has to be triggering this growth? What is it? I changed to organic chicken, turkey, beef but that didn’t help. As soon as I moved to the vegan lifestyle right away things started to change – my body cleansed and cleansed and cleansed itself for months and now today 15 months later my tummy is flat my health is stellar my skin is beautiful I feel fantastic I have lost 40lbs I have amazing energy levels and the fibroid is so tiny if not fully gone that I can wear hip fitted clothes and step out like a rock star. A whole new me emerged.

No surgery no drugs no doctors no vitamins no hormone driven foods no production line skin care no animals and no animal products (milk for example is hidden in many “products” like sauces and even potato chips????). My doctor was amazed!!

I am so happy to have this new found lifestyle I truly hope that people around the world see the vegan lifestyle and the real options for health as this lifestyle. Who wants to be in a hospital who wants to be sick who wants to be aging and going into walkers who wants all these awful diseases? I don’t think anyone does. Do it for yourself, your partners, your children first and don’t let people push you around or tease you about it. Many many changes will come and part of the change if your discipline with this lifestyle is to own the path to your health fully and always.

I took control of my own body to regain health and today at 55 years old I can do anything including cycling in the rain running on the treadmill taking the stairmaster at the gym for 30 minutes taking the stairs as much as possible wherever I go laughing and enjoying life with less stress and much more empowerment. I love this whole food plant based lifestyle.

An now – drum roll – introducing … Mimi Kirk

I just love Mimi Kirk. Mimi was my second inspiration after seeing Sanjay Gupta with The Last Heart Attack as posted previously. Mimi came into my vision in September 2011. Mimi is motivation. Just look at her. I saw this interview and she became my new hero. You only need to look and listen to her to know that she is doing something different that most of us. She is vital, fun, hip, sexy, modern, glowing and sharing her story with others.

It’s ok to be aging however old and decrepit doesn’t have to be. Aging with wellness is beautiful and sassy and people like Mimi show us the way to a fabulous life after 70 that doesn’t involve being feeble and sick. IT’S THE FOOD!

Mimi Kirk is amazing and I have a link on my blogroll to her website Young On Raw Food that is so worth checking out.

Mimi Kirk – thank you for being you and inspiring so many. You are rare however your flock of followers is growing and again I can’t stress this enough IT’S THE FOOD.

You will want to share Mimi with everyone as she just blows you out – IT’S THE FOOD. I have had the same transformation all from the change in the food. WOW!
