Born and raised on a vegetarian diet, although my family did have fish and turkey occasionally. But mostly in my younger years my diet consisted of lots of salads, green and vegetable juices and as I got older- fasting and cleansing.
I was vegetarian up until I was 17, which is when I got my drivers license. I realized that I had the freedom to drive, go with my friends and get junk food. Then when I was 19 and a half I went to Knoxville TN for a service mission- there is where I indulged in the yummy food of the south. Over the course of 2 years I started noticing a few colds, sore throats and low energy. A few years after returning home, I noticed one morning I woke up and I had a strange pain in my big toe. I didn’t know what this was or what was going on with me. My folks suggested that I clean up my diet- so I did and that seemed to help. But I hadn’t quite learned my lesson, fast forward 8 and a half years later I noticed that my whole body was starting to retain fluid- didn’t know what this was about. A holistic doctor that I had been going to suggested that I take my blood pressure and the results were not pretty so I had my parents take me to the emergency room. After the doctors did some testing they admitted me to the ICU, and by the next morning they informed me that I had stage 4 renal (kidney) failure that was caused from all the years of me suffering from gout and also from having been born with small kidneys.
Right then and there as I was laying in the hospital bed- my father who has always been a strong health advocate challenged me to learn my lesson again about how important it is to follow a plant based diet is and follow a vegan diet. So it has taken time and I still have some work to do, but as I continue to see this getting well through, I do believe that eating a plant based diet is the way to go!!
