Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

 

I was a dancer in my younger years through adult years.

By age 18, I was diagnosed with pre-arthritis in my knees.

✿  I was living on fast food, canned foods, processed foods, doughnuts, etc.  The dancing probably helped me keep the weight down, but lots of exercise did NOT keep every ailment away.

✿   In the last 10 years, the arthritis grew very menacing!  The pain spread to my neck, back, legs, feet, etc.

✿   We definitely have a winter season here in Chicagoland, and the pain was the worst in winter, from November to March or April.

✿   I initially took Ibuprofen to mask the pain, until we were trying to get pregnant.  Then the doctors told us to stay off of Ibuprofen, because it could hinder fertility.

✿   In 2010, I began my raw food diet, eating mainly gluten free and dairy free as well as raw food.  Very quickly, ALL arthritis symptoms were gone gone gone!

✿   In 2012, I became raw vegan.  The healing continued.  

✿✿✿✿✿   I'm OFF all medicines now for arthritis and everything else!   ✿✿✿✿

Thanks Nathalie!  Yes!  I agree!  It's amazing what the not so raw, not so healthy food can do and so quickly!

This is extraordinary and i am so pleased for you. I have arthritis too and yes, when I fall off the wagon it comes back quickly, harder and worst and back on a raw food-no crap way of eating and it is like a miracle the pain goes away. Isn't it amazing what (bad) food does to us? And because it is addicting we do it sometimes but aren't we silly sometimes?

I am really really glad for you, pain is a life killer that's the nly thing we have in mid and the solution is here!!!

Good luck!
