30 Bananas a Day!

Hey guys!

I'm gonna make this a rant post, a 'talking to myself' kind of post cause I'm really upset right now. I've been 100% raw for 2 months now, and about 75% raw a few months before that. Point is I feel fantastic. Before starting this journey I had high triglycerides (at 25, turned 26 this week) because I've been on the pill for 5 years. Two months after going raw all my blood tests came back normal, I'm feeling great, I've been surrounded by people with the flu and I didn't catch it (I always caught it before going raw, somehow sooner or later it would get to me when there were so many sick people around me). I took no supplements the entire winter, which is also a first.

Anyway. My mum has been and still is extremely sick. She went from one disease to another since January. She has taken a HUGE amount of meds including some very strong antibiotic, which apparently didn't help at all cause she probably didn't need it (but yes she was advised by a doctor to take them). Her cholesterol and triglycerides are super high, she feels bloated, tired, depressed, she's gaining weight each day. I tried convincing her to change her diet. Give up the freaking meat. The eggs. The dairy. Get more fruit, more veggies. I'm not saying go 100% raw over night. But add more of these. Maybe they'll help. They helped me. Her answer? I'm young, at this age the body heals easier, it's not my diet it's just the age it won't work on her. How the fruit do you know???!!! Just try, please. Maybe the bloat goes away. Maybe you lose all these pounds you've put on. 

But she is just convinced on not listening to me. I know there's nothing you can do to help, I just needed to rant. I'm so angry and sad cause I love her and I hate to see her so sick. I hate to see that she just won't believe that a diet change could help. You'd think after so much time and so many meds that she's taken she would start seeing that they aren't always the solution, that sometimes they can do more harm than good. 

Oh, as a bonus, I forgot to mention that my doctor (the same one treating my mum) did NOT believe me when I told her I didn't take any meds to lower my triglycerides. She didn't believe I'm eating HCRV and I don't have any deficiencies without taking supplements. She just did NOT believe. She even asked me why I won't tell her what I took, did I see another doctor, she won't be angry at me? Seriously, I was speechless.

Hey Lydia, I'm so sorry! :( sometimes you cannot make people vegan. They have to want to be healthy first. 

Try to talk to your mom. If she's religious, tell her the Bible says that fruit and herbs and the designated food for humans. If she's not, show her this guy


An armenian who went vegan at 50 or 60.

Wow, your Doc is so brainwashed! I don't know how this has happened but many people have beliefs that are strongly imbedded in their minds and cannot think outside of them. It's very strange, especially because they are false! Crazy thought paradigms... I don't know how I escaped them

i can relate to your situation on so  many levels.

sad that to many.. or most people.. dr's are gods, omniscient, not to be questioned.. until it dawns on them that their dr's are mere humans and are only "practicing medicine"...

what about  making your mom a smoothie, or offer her stuff when you're eating.. 

as for you dr. ,

wow. kinda insulting, isnt it. 

 mine was that way too when the PE ( blood clot in my lung)  disappeared after 2 years..

no thanks to him and innohep shots, followed by warfarin , but thanks to my  going off that poison and putting myself  on nattokinaise.  whatever.  they will hear when and if they want to. 

but hey- awesome your tryglyceides are down :-)  maybe your mom has taken note of that and its relation to your lifestyle

I would try to get your mother to sit down with you and watch a film or youtube lecture sympathetic to the cause.  Your mother may not be ready for HCLFRV just yet, but she might be much more amenable to the low fat vegan diets espoused by people like Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., or Dr. John McDougall.

As to your Doctor, tell her to read the China Study if she really wants answers.
