I am so happy to have found this amazing lifestyle. Thanks to Durianrider en Freelea's videos on youtube I was able to change my life. At that moment I was struggling with digestive issues, hair loss, extreme anxiety, depression, chronic constipation, trichophagia and many more.
Everything started to get better when in 2010 I overnight took the decisions to become a vegan for ethical reasons. It wasn't a overnight transition as I had been experimenting with vegan and vegetarian dishes due to my veggie partner then. I decided I wanted to help nature, our environment en the animals. Veganism just made sense. Immediately I could feel changes in my body and I was finally able to go to the toilet again. I was trying to follow alicia silvestones kind diet. Plenty of carbs.
2012 Fall back
After being on a vegan diet for too years I had increased the amount of oils in my food. My new vegan partner has weight issues and wanted to gain weight. I thought adding more oil would help...Little did I know what this would do to my already broken digestion and body. I got really sick again and wanted at one point beat my head against the wall.(many attacks) This was a hard winter, somehow I started looking for answers online, because I knew veganism was the truth but maybe I was doing something wrong. It was on youtube that I found Harley&Freelea. They were honest and gave simple options to eat. I started to cut down on all junk straight away, but it took me a long time to take down all of it. I felt something changing inside from the beginning. I quit my sucki job at a chocolate shop, although they had vegan options I would eat sometimes the dairy chocolates too when undercarbed and found out I am really lactose intolerant. Obviously like all humans :) The job started to give me nightmares too about stables full of mommy cows in pain. After quitting tobacco and alcohol I felt so much better. I had been abusing these substances for over 15 years. Alcohol would numb my pain, but with fruit by my side I don't need it any more.
I Finally got the hang of it. My body is changing fast. This had been a really challenging year because I got dental problems. Too of my teeth broke off after a root canal from a couple of years ago. To scared to go to the dentist and broke as hell I decided not to do anything about it. Untill I got an infection that would not go away. I thought I was going to die I was in so much pain. Something like this I had never experienced before. One day I almost got hit by a car on my way to my new sucki job because I had a fever all the time and could not focus. This was the moment I decided things have to change and I made an appointment with a holistic dentist. He told me 4 teeth had to go. Too which my old dentist had destroyed with the root canal(NEVER AGAIN) and my too wisdom teeth that had given me many pain growing out over the last 10 years because I did not have enough place in my mouth for them. I went for surgery to remove them and after spend months in bed spitting pus and being sick to my stomach from all the medication. I had used so many painkillers before I went to the dentist. But the moment the strongest ones would not help anymore I knew something was wrong.
Now things are better, my mouth is finally free of the infection I did not take antibiotics for it because chemical drugs make me suicidal and constipated. My diet is getting better everyday now I understand the idea about carbs. Harley made this great video explaining about allowing yourself to eat cooked carbs at night. I was so glad to see that video. Till that day I was feeling guilty with cooked food and did not understand why my body would still ask for vegan pizza etc. Now I know why! I was just undercarbed! Thank you guys so much. I was so bloated before because I was having cooked carbs for lunch and fruit for dinner. Now I'm following rawtill4 and I works like a #$% Definitely a huge difference having the cooked at night.
All my symptoms are melting away and it will take more time to heal I know this. But I feel alive again and without the fruit and the help of this fantastic community I would have never been able to heal myself.
