Veganism – Why i live and love this lifestyle
I would like to just say i became vegan for the animals only in the beginning but this would be a lie, it was a multitude of factors in the end. I first became a Vegetarian for the animals back in 2010 and i lasted a mediocre 6 weeks before i became ill and resorted back to eating a meat based diet.
So lets start from the beginning, why was i so fat, unhappy and always unhealthy well, I would eat and eat and nothing stopped me. I could go into a buffet and easily finish off 3 plates of food and go back for pudding and then ice cream afterwards. Yes i really could eat a huge amount of food back then.
Wow it makes me cringe to think about it now!!
Now I ve always suffered with weight problems ever since i left school and my weight rocketed from 11 stone to nearly 17 stone at my heaviest. This happened on and off 3 or 4 times till i became Vegan.
Being over weight already comes with it s own risks but couple that with unhealthy relationships, 90 hour working weeks and poor nutrition and what does it spell?
A coronary artery spasm triggering a minor heart attack
Yes at just 29 i had i had this awful experience that i still find it hard to believe. I remember i kept getting banging migraines and i was always tired and stressed. I went to my then employer and asked for some time off, I was a team leader for a support company at the time and my then senior manager really wasn t interested, and working her staff into the ground was her passion in life. So she quit happily refused.
This resulted in me being signed off from work and eventually quiting this company.
So just a few short days after leaving this company i remember being in bed asleep waking to what i thought was an almighty bang and something crashing through the house. I looked around to see what was happening and i couldn t see anything, i was so confused!! then it hit me, like an explosion going off in my chest!!
What on earth was happening, I can still remember that feeling now, The tightness in my chest the pain in my jaw and arm. The only thing i could think was oh no i m going to die!!
Most of that morning still remains a blur, I can remember things like Blood tests and Doctors telling me how i was lucky to be alive with the results i was showing for my BP and HR. How i was lucky it wasn t a major heart attack or a stroke.
Scary stuff to be told really when your so young.
I was told that i had Coronary artery disease and that i would be on medication for thee rest of my life… great just what i needed really. I was informed i would need to start eating healthy and looking after myself and so when i went back home i tried for a while but nothing was helping. My medication was bumped up and i remember it made me so ill, i was putting on more weight and i was having awful nightmares. Nothing i tried was helping.
My Mom had been diagnosed in 2010 with an aggressive form of diabetes and it was proving very difficult to control, at about the same time that i became ill the Doctors had told my mom she needed to start preparing for Dialysis and a possible kidney transplant. My mom outright refused both there and then stating she had lived her life. Her Kidney function had dropped to 21% and the hospital was worried at how fast she was deteriorating, So it was at that point i started googling alternative ways to help my mom become healthy and it was at this point i came across the video on YouTube (reverse your diabetes in 30 days)
Wow how this blew my mind away, Not just for my mom but also myself. i immediately told my mom that i was going veggie and so was she. Again my mom refused, i said to her well if you are not wanting to go down the route of dialysis then you can try this way.
After some persuasion my mom finally came around.
I started reading so much information about vegetarianism and started watching documentaries about how awful the meat industry is and i started to slowly move away from most animal products. It finally hit me when i came across a book called the China study. I was reading how people where reversing their CAD and a numerous host of other illnesses that humans encounter due to a poor nutritional and healthy lifestyle with just nutrition alone.
Hippocrates said “let food be thy medicine” thousands of years ago
I was amazed by all this notion of food curing people and it really hit me hard, I decided at that point i was going to get rid of my medication and adopt as close to vegan lifestyle as possible. I went and told my Doctor the plan and he told me i was crazy and said that CAD couldn t be reversed let alone cured and that i was mad stopping my medication.
I carried on regardless
In just the space of a year i went from 16 stone 7 pounds to a healthy 12 stone i was amazed as i wasn t doing any form of exercise just my care job. At the beginning of 2014 i went for some more tests to see where i was with my health and to every bodies amazement there was no sign of CAD and my HR and BP was better than it had ever been. I was so happy i had done something that i was told couldn t be done.
But i now knew otherwise!
At the end of 2015 my Mom also got some great news she was no longer in renal failure and her results went from a dangerous 21% to a more healthier 54%. The Consultant that she was seeing at the time was amazed and said she had never seen a recovery like this before. I told her about the lifestyle change that my mom had been put on but again another person who said that it could never be down to adopting a plant based lifestyle, My Moms Bloods are now more stable with no major ups and downs. She isn t falling asleep all the time and her pain levels are managed.
Yet the only thing that had changed was her diet
I now only eat a complete vegan diet, My partner Luke is also happily vegan now too. My mom on the other hand has adopted a flexitarian lifestyle and eats Meat on a Sunday only ( i have tried to get rid but she won t have it) and still drinks milk. I m just great full that i now know what i do now about health and nutrition and that when Doctors tell you that most things can t be cured – what they really mean is they can t be cured with westernized medicine.
Your body is a very powerful thing that is capable of so many things if it is provided with all the correct nutrition. Prevention is always better than cure in my mind now, and making steps towards a plant based diet or even adopting more vegan friendly options into your family and you lifestyle isn t hard and provides so many benefits.
When i look back now
I sit and think to myself now about how i used to look at a plate of meat or even a nasty kebab and salivate over it, I think now how disturbing it is seeing a dead animal on a plate and how i used to enjoy consuming it and thinking it was normal. I will never go back to eating anything from an animal. Animals haven t been put on this planet for us to abuse and eat them. I also know now that to get the best out of my life and help i have made the right decision in life not just for me but also for the animals of this planet and the planet itself.
The biggest evil of all
The animal agriculture industry is the biggest evil on this planet and contributes to so many detrimental factors not just on ourselves but also on the environment. If you want to make a positive step for your health, your children s health and the environment for today and the future the best thing you can do is switch to a vegan life style. There are so many tasty and amazing alternatives out there to eating a meat based diet, I now eat more varieties of food than i ever did whilst eating meat and i couldn t feel more happier or proud of what i have achieved.

” New Years resolutions”
So it s a new year and as i can see so many people have decided that they re going to start eating health, Posts about switching to Organic losing weight, detoxing and so on, That is all great and all and i applaud you for these resolutions your making, But we as a nation are getting more unhealthier by the day. We have one of the best health systems in the world but people are still becoming sicker.
Why is this?
We live in a nation of fast food, convenience meals, and people who work so much that they don t have time to cook a healthy meal for themselves anymore. Even more so children who only want to eat sweets and junk food We re not off to a great start, Couple this with all the medications that people take soon as they become ill Doctors will give you anything these days for an ailment. Our Bodies are just becoming more toxic.
However there are also other aspects we need to consider,
Most people really don t realize that what you put on to your body is just as important as what you put in. We cover ourselves in every potion, cream and spray that we can think of to give us that glowing skin, slow down the aging process and even to make us smell nice to mask the nastiness we have more than probably put inside ourselves. Then you have your household cleaning products, Air fresheners, washing detergents even the water you wash and bathe in can be contaminated and there are so many more. Then couple that with the pollution you absorb whilst out and about doing your daily routines.
Your all starting to see the picture right…? It ain t a great combination.
I have for one been guilty of all this plenty of times in my life, Kebabs, Junk food, Chemical laden deodorants, Aftershaves, moisturizers, anti wrinkle creams, energy drinks and copious amounts of alcohol.
So when your starting your new years resolution don t do it halfheartedly, Yes switch to Organic produce, eat more healthy clean meals, cut down the processed junk, fizzy pop and high sugar energy drinks. But remember there are so many other positive changes you can make to your body, drink more pure filtered water, start eating more fruit and veg. Look at the labels on your skin care products!! if your switching to Organic foods why not switch to organic skin care products?
There are a few companies out there now producing products with no chemicals in them from raw and organic ingredients, check out the ranges from the Opportunity company that include the ranges of Reviive , Jouve, and Priime products that are all revolutionary, organic, suitable for all the family and are never tested on animals.
These products are one of a kind!! they are free from PEG s, Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates and Synthetic Chemicals.
- The range Reviive consist of a body wash, fluoride free tooth paste and even a shampoo and conditioner these products are suitable to use on children,
- The Jouv range of skin care products are like no other you will ever use, A brightening cream that makes your skin look and feel amazing, A tightening cream that will give you results that you can see and feel in 90 seconds.
- The Priime range of oils that you can use around your house for so many different uses from cleaning to freshening the air and yes there is even one that smells great as a perfume/aftershave.
- There is the Nutrifii range of nutritional supplements to give you that added extra boost of nutrients for many different areas.
- There is the Puritii range of Purification products available such as a one of a kind water filter bottle and air filtration system.
- The Slenderiiz range is also available for those wanting to shift some weight after the festive period or maintain that slender figure.
There are a few ranges of organic deodorants that are popping up now too, aftershaves and body sprays made from essential oils that smell amazing.
All that is left now is your bathing water and showering water and there are so many different ways to improve this, A shower filter and a water filtration system are great investments.
It don t take much to make changes and you don t have to do them all at once, But remember if your going to do something do it right.
Have a great day everybody and good luck with all your goals and resolutions.
