  • Im having some problems...how do I do this?

    I lnow your questiin was asked some time ago, but I am nee to this community.  I am married to a vegan and I care for my mother who is not. Some days the temptation is truly there,  so I feel your pain. I use to be an emotional binge eater, and I constantly would break from the healthy lifestyle I desired to have. 

    I have gastroparesis (my stomach processes food slowly, making it difficult to take meds, and often times my stomach hurt after meals. I would have distant bloating, I was a type 2 diabetic, high blood pressure and cholesterol and I am a cancer aurvivor of 2 years. 

    One day I just got tired of being sick. Fast forward to one month of clean eating and no cheating, the results have been phenomenal.  

    The Dr. Told me months ago I had growth in the area in which cancer had been removed. Imagine my fear. I refused to get biopsied and started my RAW Vegan journey. 3 months since being told of the growth and 1 month RAW the growth is gone,  Im no longer diabetic, my blood preasure readings are normal, awaiting my next cholesterol check, I am now able to eat salads and more fruits/veggies (I could barely eat anything, a banana would make me full and make my tummy ache a little - it didnt take much), my appetite has actually increased and Im able to eat more. 

    Make sure you are filled up with what you need for self bedore cooking. The temptation will not be as great. If you are not able to drink a smoothie or munch on fresh fruit while cooking.  It can be challenging, but IT CAN BE DONE. Always remember your WHY? Why did you start? NOTHING tastes as good as HEALTHY feels. Just remind yourself of this ALWAYS. You've got this.  If you fell off by time you read this, start again. I'm rooting for you. We all need a cheerleader, Ill be that for you. laughing

  • Why am I suddenly getting headaches?


    Ive been RAW for one month now. Ive only been consuming fruits, veggies, grinded seeds and nuts in the form of dressings and nut butters. Due to my slow digestion I find its easier for me to not eat nuts and seeds without breaking them down and not eating them straight out of the bag. I have not gotten into sprouting lentils, etc... as of yet. (I want to give a bit of history of my diet. Question: I have woken up with a headache for the past 2 mornings.  I havent been able to immediately check my blood pressure. Any suggestions as to why Im suddenly gettinfgheadaches? Ive been fine up until now.

    Thank you kindly!
