Well, after receiving this e-mail last evening I just couldn’t help myself. It brought tears to my eyes so I just had to share it with you. Diabetes Type 2 has become so common that I fear people assume they simply have to live with it. I will certainly not ramble on about everything you already know about diabetes. Today I merely wanted to point out a couple of things for you to consider when it comes to health and wellness. First and foremost many people assume, since I am the founder of a health and wellness company, that my thoughts and ideas regarding health are extreme.
Here is the reality, there are instances where in rare situations we come across people who are very ill and at that point we may recommend a vegan lifestyle for two to three months simply as a “detox” to get on the road to recovery. Here is the simple truth of the matter, you do not have to make drastic changes in your life to experience quick results. As you know, since most of you are on the program, you can eat most of all the foods that you desire such as meat, fish, poultry, carbohydrates; and still stay on the path of great health. For the majority of people good health does not require a “detox”. Good health will simply mean the deletion of a few poisonous items from your lifestyle. The big no-no’s of course are the items that we consider to be poisonous such as the chemicals in processed foods. In fact my friends, if you make just one minor change, for instance substitute water for soda; that will even change your life dramatically.
Without further ado I would like to share with you, the e-mail that prompted the blog today. Please bear in mind that what is so remarkable about this e-mail is that this woman began our program barely two weeks ago. Additionally, this is not intended as a promotion for our program, but more importantly to promote what I consider to be my mission in life and that is my goal to strive for “a poison free world”.
“Thanks so much for working with me. I was so excited yesterday because it was the first time in a very long time that my sugar level was in the 90s with no medication. I contributed this to the new way that I am eating and yesterday I finally included exercise into my day. I walked for about 40 minutes. Of course this will be my motivation to continue down this path.
My sugar level is doing so much better. It continues to come down.
To tell you the truth Vicky I was very discourage about my diabetes. I was not checking my sugar level on a regular basis because it was mostly in the 200 range and I didn’t really want to know how high it was. I was abusing my body and this was having a negative impact on my life overall. I was always tired and didn’t feel great. I thought I would be unhappy changing my choices of the foods I just loved (potatoes chips, soda, processed and sugary foods). However, I am actually really enjoying my new foods such as oatmeal, fish, brown rice, home made salad dressing, and lots of great vegetables. I can’t leave out how happy I am that I haven’t been drinking sodas. Drinking water now feels so right to me. I feel so much better! I really look forward in the near future of being totally off of my diabetic medication.
A big thanks to Jack who initiated the conversation with me about Studio V and connected us together. Please feel free to share my excitement with others who may benefit from my experience.”
