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 was tired of being tired, so i switched to a plant based an diet & i feel great!

As a Vegan even Covid 19 can’t shake my immunity and positively thinking neither can any other variant be it a usb kick box it can’t dim this switch. I even feel my Melanoma can all be cured if one lives day by day on a fruit and plant based diet. I eat a plant based diet and most of all this brings me a sense of good Karma, I respect life and all sentient beings as being equally entitled to life. And as a person of faith Human dominion over Animals means for me, as we should interpret it….we must nurture and care for them when they require it by being their care takers and for me this means being anti-specism. I do not eat mammals as a mammal myself for me that is likened to cannibalism. I prefer to mangey leaf.

I had pretty high blood pressure but I was refusing to go on medication for it. Went plant based in 2015 after watching “Forks & Knives” on TV. In 2016 tightened it up better by following Dr. Joel Fuhran’s Nutritarian eating plan to forever protect myself from cardiovascular disease. Never felt better at the now age of 75 years young!

I’m 65 and I find that I still have a lot of energy. I do vigorous hiking and I still love competitive sports.

We are both in our 80’s & all about healthy aging with a whole food plant-based eating lifestyle! We have two stories to tell.

Fran’s story …

In 1992 I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis & told that it was incurable, I’d have to be on drugs for the rest of my life, and that my lifespan would be shortened. I was prescribed prednisone & Mestinon and was told that there wasn’t much else that could be done.  I suffered from severe double vision, had difficulty with my speech and swallowing, and at times I was extremely weak.

Over the next 14 years, I saw 11 different neurologists! Not one suggested a change in lifestyle, including diet, as a possible remedy.

Then, in 2006, I heard a nutritionist speak.  He explained that eating animal products compromise the immune system and recommended that patients with any autoimmune disease switch to a whole food plant-based diet.  I immediately did so and in just a few months I was off all medications and no longer had any symptoms!

It is now 15 years later and I feel safe in saying that I no longer have this ‘incurable’ disease and take no medicines at all!

Bob’s story …

In 2006, I learned that I had a small tumor on the outside of my left kidney.  My urologist advised me to have it removed asap. I had cryoablation surgery, a procedure that froze the tumor off. Unfortunately, it turned out to be malignant.

The surgeon said he got the entire growth but explained that this type of tumor has been known to return. He never brought up the idea of changing what I ate could help prevent a recurrence of my cancer.

I also adopted a whole food plant-based diet as a means of prevention and have been cancer-free for 15 years! WFPB is the way to go!

Our Book:

I have been plant based for nearly eight years. I previously had high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, I was 80 pounds overweight and had four heart procedures. My blood pressure is normal, my lipids are now excellent and I lost 70 of the 80 pounds. My type 2 diabetes is much better controlled and my life is much better than it was when I gave up animal products.
