Amy S. Y.
For most of my life I struggled with problems with digestion and elimination. Even as a toddler, I had difficulty digesting a variety of foods and was misdiagnosed with Celiac. As I grew older, I continued to experience bloating and severe abdominal pain after eating. I was given a host of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications to remedy the problem but to no avail. Almost a decade ago I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Again, I was given new medications that were also limited in their ability to rectify the problem.
Approximately two years ago, my dear friend Vincenzo Granata began talking to me about a plantbased diet and lifestyle. At his suggestion I read The RAVE Diet by Mike Anderson and The Digestive Tuneup by Dr. John McDougall. With little to lose, I changed what I ate and I slowly adopted the new lifestyle. In the brief year and a half that I fully embraced a plantbased diet, I found the results to be nothing short of miraculous. I no longer experience bloating or constipation, and I longer need any medication to remedy the problem. I have increased energy, my skin is more radiant, and my hair is stronger and shinier. It is a tremendous relief to be able to live my life free of the discomfort and pain I previously experienced on a daily basis. Now a grandmother, my only regret is that I waited this long to experience the amazing benefits of a plantbased lifestyle.
Type 2 Diabetes, Headaches & Colds
Hippocrates said, “Let food be your medicine.” Like most Americans, I failed to recognize the connection between food and medicine. I ate the Standard American Diet and continued to suffer from the Standard American Medical Problems, depending on pills for cures.
By the time Dr. Allen suggested I try a plant based diet, my Type 2 diabetes was out of control, I had daily headaches, I was tired all the time, and I got colds regularly. I thought that these ailments were simply a consequence of aging, and I was reluctantly looking forward to my quality of life continuing to deteriorate with age.
The results of changing to a plant based diet were amazing and immediate. My diabetes was reversed within two months. My blood tests were better than “normal.” I haven’t had a headache or cold in two years, and I have more energy than I’ve had in twenty years. Plus I lost thirty-six pounds effortlessly! I’m 70, and I now wear a size smaller than I did in high school!
Most Americans continue to swear by a diet that is the unhealthiest in the world. I constantly hear, “I could never give up cheesecake/steak/chicken wings.” I gave them up and have never looked back. I plan to dance at my grandson’s wedding!
Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bursitis, GERD, Gout & Hypothyroid
My story starts with some back ground information. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 12 years ago, and have been on disability since. Some of my other health issues are: arthritis, bursitis, GERD, gout, under active thyroid, high cholesterol, neuropathic pain in the left foot. I have been seeing Dr. Allen now for 8 years. Before that I had 6 specialists for my problems. Dr. Allen has changed my life several times for the best over these years. Now after attending his seminar one month ago, my life has really changed for the better.
I have lost 8 pounds and several inches off my body. This was all by just eating what was on the plan. I did not exercise at all, just starting to cook for myself started out taxing enough for my poor body. I have not had this much energy in decades! That is not even the best news, it just all happened without trying. I have been on 10 medications for many years, and today Dr. Allen has taken me off 5 of those. That is half of what I had been taking! This is such wonderful news for me. I have not been this excited in a long time. This all happened after just one month of changing what I ate!
Once I knew what to eat and what not to eat, it was pretty simple after that. Once I started cooking this great food for myself, food started tasting better to me. I was lazy and ate processed meals for so long, I forgot that food is not suppose to taste like cardboard! After 2 weeks, I was able to add back spices and foods I have not eaten for 30 years. My metabolism has increased, and I eat a lot of the right food. I am so excited now to decide what I am going to cook, and look forward to eating it. I am never hungry, but instead I am full all the time.
So imagine eating all the right food you want, getting energy and strength, losing fat, and getting healthy enough to go off medications! With the great results I have gotten after just one month, I can not wait to see how much better I will be going forward. I really recommend this plan for everyone that wants to feel better and be more healthy. I decided at the seminar that my life was worth doing it for!
