10 Years!

It was ten years ago today I started my path to reversing my autoimmune disease. And not one day do I take for granted. Having gone through years of pain, frustration and uncertainty, I do not want to face that again. Knowing how to treat my digestive tract, I will always remain cautious about what I eat and how I’m handling my health. I was given a second chance at my health and I want to do well with it. I hope you may find some encouragement that it can be reversed. With the right doctors, the right medication, the right supplements, the right diet and the right attitude, you can beat this too!

Forks Over Knives movie – Must See!!!

Synopsis from RottenTomatoes.com: Forks Over Knives” examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.

The film explores the separate pioneering work of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. and T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. Through a combination of scientific experiments and clinical research, they document significant health improvements just by moving people away from the “Standard American Diet” which is full of animal products and processed foods. The film follows some real life patients as they make these diet changes and see positive changes in their blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and other levels of health. One of the “patients” is the film’s writer and director Lee Fulkerson, whose dinners pre-filming used to consist of a fast-food double cheeseburger, onion rings, and a chocolate shake. “By seeing the amazing results a whole foods, plant-based diet had on the health and well-being of our test patients, my mind was irrevocably changed,” said Fulkerson in a recent VegNews article.
