Kind Cures

Emily’s stomach problems cured!!

I found this success story on the site, and its such a great one for any of you who suffer from stomach issues! Check out Emily E’s great story:


“I am now 22 years old and feeling great as a vegan. However, I have not always been this way. When I was a little girl, I was a skinny little thing and ate lots of junk food. Then I grew up, and I still at junk food…but it wasn’t so cute anymore. I never became overweight but I did have body image issues. Then came the physical problems. I always had an extremely sensitive stomach and I constantly had stomachaches. Last year (right around this time), my problems got serious. I had to see a gastroenterologist and have a colonoscopy (remember I was only 21)! My dr. even told me I may need surgery! I lived with this painful problem for about one year!!!! It was terrible and stressful.

Then one fabulous day, I was watching Oprah and saw Alicia Silverstone talking passionately about her book. Alicia had also said that she had struggled with stomach issues. I decided that I would buy the book and see how I liked it. Well, I read the book and decided to commit to 30 days of veganism. 30 days has become 3 months and I have never felt better! My stomach issues have COMPLETELY GONE AWAY! No need for surgery!

Becoming vegan was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I thought it was going to be extremely difficult, but it was something that came so NATURALLY for me! My whole life has always been about food and dieting and stomach problems. For the first time in my life, I feel good…correction great! My hair is shiny and long, my nails are strong, and everyone tells me I’m glowing! And I FEEL like I’m glowing! I can’t thank Alicia enough for the amazing gift of her book and blog. It has truly changed my life.”

This is all so great Emily! I’m so happy you saw me on Oprah and got the book. This is all so exciting.
