I needed to change my lifestyle. I needed to regain my health. The diagnosis of the dreadful auto-immune disease was going to be my downfall unless I did something and FAST. So I did a 360 degree turn.
I had lost 10 lbs. in three weeks, hardly had any appetite and zero energy to do the things I loved. This is when the passion for juicing was born.
2014 wasn’t my best year. After a lot of doctor visits, blood tests, and a biopsy from one of the few scabs that I had started to notice on my skin turned out to be dermal/skin Sarcoidosis. DEVASTATING!Even as a nurse for over 20 years, this diagnosis name was new to me.
All those years of home cooking, I knew it all! So I thought. But was I wrong!
Treatment would be composed of very lethal medicines which included steroids, even oral chemotherapy and inter-tubercular (TB) pills. I chose to delay treatment so I could do my own intense research. Meanwhile, I opted for topical creams.
And so the idea for juicing was born! Daily juicing in conjunction with healthy eating created a fire in me. In fact, my next doctor’s appointment 6 months later was great news. You guessed it! No trace of Sarcoidosis or its symptoms.
Almost 5 years to the day, I have become a juicing fanatic. And because of my amazing health transformation, I urge you to join in this journey with me! Let’s remove toxic chemicals from our bodies from processed food's life and environmental stressors to decrease inflammation.
LET’S GET JUICING and PREVENT versus REACT!!
I call this "simple life for a healthier You". Your health is your responsibility.
