Hi! My name is Bobbie and I am a 34yr.old wife and mother of two. I have been a vegan/vegetarian for 3 and 1/2 weeks now and am starting to see the benefits with my appearance. At first there was some dry patches on my face and my hair looked horrible, but now the change is amazing. My hair is growing back, my complexion is glowing again. My eyes...uh....my husband has always loved my eyes. He says my eyes are just so much more beautiful than ever. I chalk it up to the fact not only that I cut out animal products, but also that there is a calmness inside me now. I love eating this way.
I was trying so hard to feel better. For three years, I felt like death walking. Literally! My mind, my body, everything was just falling apart for me. I went to doctor after doctor to find answers. They all wanted me to take anti depressants and anti anxiety meds. They made me feel WORSE! I finally got a doctor to listen to me. She sent me for some blood work. My estrogen levels were so high and my progesterone levels were extremely low! HORMONAL IMBALANCE? I am too young for menopause, so what's this all about! ? She says to me.....FOOD. What you are putting in your body.....all the pesticides from the foods I eat and many other stresses cause this. She told me to start buying organic. So I did! Simple! I began changing the way I ate (and the way I cook..family doesn't even realize it..lol) and also started to research our foods and what is in them. I was shocked at all the things we are consuming and our govt. is making it happen! I stumbled across Alicias book and it helped me get started. I am now reading the China Study! GREAT BOOK full of info. I still mess up with cheese, but everything else was easy for me! LOVE MY NEW LIFE>>>THX ALICIA!
Thanks for sharing your story! I know what you mean buy feeling like the walking dead. I don't think I detoxed at all because I felt so horrible that all I could do was feel better! I went vegetarian on new years day of this year, and am still working towards vegan ( I slip with the dairy and occasionally egg beaters, yuck, I know!) I am ten years older than you, and wish I had gotten a clue at your age. Congrats on your success!
