Just give it a try

Thirty six years ago, I would have died. I was only 44 years old and had just been diagnosed with severe heart disease, high blood pressure, Thyroid Cancer, pre diabetes and I was almost 55 lbs. overweight. I was an aerobic instructor teaching 25 classes of aerobics per week. I thought I was eating a healthy diet of chicken, cheese, yogurt and ice cream. Luckily for me, my then new neighbor told me about Dr. John McDougall and I read his book. I could not believe that his patients were all getting over cancer, heart disease, diabetes and all chronic diseases. I jumped right in and never went back for more radiation and now I have perfect health. I just had to change to a starch based, whole food plant exclusive diet without oil. Now, at 80 I have great health and energy and still teach aerobics.

I have been vegan 10 years and 3-4 years whole food plant based. I have lost 140 lb over the past 10 years and came off 3 blood pressure medicines and 3 diabetes medicines.

Hi Peter,
It is nice connecting with you. My journey started with a near heart attack. I was rushed to hospital and had to have a stent placed in my 95 % clogged LDA. I researched how to control my own health and googled till I found a school that taught not only health my whole body wellness. I graduated a year later from IIN. During that time my adult son developed a severe infection from the hospital where he had surgery. He was dying…I put together a health plan/diet for him and his Dr. pointed to me in an office visit with my son and said, “YOU saved your sons life…just keep this to yourself and don’t tell his don’t tell his endocrinologist”. The Dr. asked me what I had done and I gave him a nonprofessional list which he red and put in my sons folder. This led me to further studies with T.Colin Campbell, Dr. Esselstyne, reading Gregor, Ornish, Klaper, McDougle, and being accepted at Dr. Neil Barnard’s training as a Food for Life instructor. I continued to learn Plant based cooking from Rouxbe Cooking school as a Professional Plant Based Cook and Forks Over Knives Cook. Inbeteeen I heard of Hippocrates Health Institute. Having a past career in Sales/Global Dir. Of Education/Shows and Marketing…the wellness concept of health became a natural draw to me. I have taught health/nutrition to groups and will continue to spread my knowledge and expand my further wellness into facets of not only nutrition for general wellness but for individuals health making it more personal. What this will grow into and expand I don’t know…but saving my sons life, being healthy myself, lowering others blood pressure, weight loss etc. is more gratification than I expected when I began my journey in 2011. I’ve expanded from personal wellness to caring about animals and our environment. Much more to do, learn & share

Started WFPB diet two months ago. My husband joined Ar Pratiksha group and started getting her counselling. Feeling better now. Blood sugar is almost under control

Had fatty liver and poor digestive system. Met Ar Pratiksha ji in a group. Started following her advice to have WFPB diet. No tea or coffee since 1st December 2021. Feeling better

I’m the UKs only food Safety Vegan consultant. I help prepare Vegan food and drink manufacturers sell product to retailers.

I feel more people who believe in god will find VEganism remind them of the most improtant part of faith. Love.

We switched to WFPBNO during mid-2020 and have experienced remarkable transformation. I have lost 70+ lbs, reduced inflammation by 80%, cut LDL by 60%, A1C from 6.4 to 5.4 and eyesight improved from -5.0 to -3.5. My sleep apnea almost gone
