Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
So, something very exciting has happened. I was visiting my Nephrologist a few weeks ago and he asked me if I was wanting to have any more children. I hadn't really thought about it because I just assumed that I would never be able to because of the medication I take to control my Lupus. He tells me that my lab work has been stable and that he doesn't see why I couldn't conceive, it would only be a matter of adjusting my medications. He then refers me to a High Risk Obstetrics Clinic where the Doctor there immediately takes me off of 2 blood pressure medications ( I was taking 3). He advises me to check my blood pressure 3-4 times per day and come back to the clinic in 2 weeks for follow up. Around this same time I started eating Raw all day but still having a cooked meal for dinner. Within that first week my blood pressure completely normalized!!!!! By the middle of the 2nd week, my blood pressure was low enough that I took myself off the 3rd and last blood pressure medication and my blood pressure has been NORMAL ever since!!!! When I went back to the Doctor and told him that I consume about an 80% Raw Vegan diet, he didn't really have too much to say but did tell me that my blood pressure is not treatable anymore!!!!! Best news ever and I attribute it totally to what I am eating!!!!!! So much motivation for me to continue with my new way of life and never look back!!!!!
On another note, I have decided that my longterm goal is to open a Raw Food Cafe and Wellness Center in my area!!!!! Currently I work as a Nurse but I want to get into Holistic Nutrition and help others to adopt a Raw Food Lifestyle!!!!! I have never felt so balanced and healthy. So much energy and vibrance!!! I have even influenced my co-workers and they are now drinking Green Smoothies everyday!!!!! We have all signed up for a 30 day green smoothie challenge!!!!
