7 years of being Vegan has completely changed my life! Let me help you change yours too.
Meat Eater to Plant Based
For 30 years, I was a meat, dairy and eggs eater. I felt sluggish and tired, I put on weight easily and I had bad digestion and skin. All this changed 7 years ago when I transitioned to becoming Vegan. I had a brain tumour when I was 12 years old which caused me to suffer from Sensory Seizures. Sensory Seizures are different from a normal Epileptic Seizure in that I would feel it coming on and I would start to get tingly sensations down my right-hand side. The tingling would eventually go into my mouth and I would not be able to speak. At 12 years old, doctors thought I was suffering from growing pains. Sadly, this was not the case and after having a brain scan, a tumour the size of a walnut was found on my brain. Because of this tumour, I would have up to 7 Sensory Seizures a day until it was eventually removed. I had been suffering from these Sensory Seizures for nearly a year until I was diagnosed.
Fast forward to me at age 30. I was a mum to a beautiful 4 year old little girl, but my diet was really bad. I felt sluggish and sleep deprived. I was not overweight, but I felt bloated a lot of the time and had no motivation. My Sensory Seizures were increasing because I was eating rubbish and not the right foods for my body. At its worst, it got up to 24 Sensory Seizures in one month and I was convinced that my brain tumour had come back. Luckily, the brain scan was clear of tumours, but it kicked started me to into thinking that my life could not carry on this way. I was a mum now and I had a duty of care to her and to myself to nourish my body.
So, I started doing research into different diets to help with my seizures and time and time again, it said the same thing - Go Vegan. I thoroughly researched the Vegan Diet at this time for over 6 months. At that time not a huge amount of people knew what Vegan was. There was also not a lot of choice in supermarkets to being able to eat Vegan on the go. However, with my determination, I decided that this is what I needed to do. So, on December 28th 2013, I went Vegan overnight. I do not advise this to my Vegan Vitality clients as you obviously experience detox symptoms along the way. However, I felt it was the right thing for me. I ate clean plant based meals, drank plenty of water, exercised and embraced only Vegan food into my life.
Within a month my seizures dropped from 24 to only 2!! I lost nearly a stone in weight, I lost the bloated feeling and my skin, hair, nails looked great. I had the most beautiful glow to my skin from drinking green smoothies and I felt energised because my digestive system was thanking me.
