Hello my lovelies ♥ I hope you’re all doing great! Today I came across something so beautiful and inspiring (it even brought a few tears to my eyes) and I just had to share this with you all. Below is a picture of Maya, the beautiful daughter of @dehappy5_mama on Instagram. Ullenka (the happy mama!), her husband and their three kids have been following a raw high carb low fat vegan diet for the last 6 months and have experienced some truly remarkable results. Maya had previously suffered from severe eczema as well as leaky gut caused by candida overgrowth. After only a few months, Maya is completely healed and is looking absolutely gorgeous and healthy.
This before and after made me somewhat emotional today and really tugged on my heart strings. As you may know, I’ve had my own on and off struggles with my skin, and I’ve seen plenty of dermatologists over the years. During every consultation, I’d ask them about diet and if it’s related to my skin issues. I’d ask them if there are any foods I should be avoiding, or foods that may be disrupting my hormones (thus causing the acne). I’d ask them if the health of my digestive system could be linked to acne, or if stress / exercise had any impacts. Every doctor looked at me with a smile and said no, acne is caused due to bacterial growth on the skin and diet / lifestyle habits has no impact. Then they were always more than happy to prescribe me an antibacterial cream, face cleansers and medicines. It just never felt right. I was so happy when I discovered this lifestyle and read about all the positive transformations from people healing themselves of all sorts of diseases and health complications. This lifestyle is so empowering and set us free from the never ending cycle of pharmaceuticals and medicated treatments. “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine by thy food” – Hippocrates.

I hope this can help others who might be dealing with similar conditions. I have more info in my videos and under the “Health and Diet” category, as well as under the “Vegan Plant Based Lifestyle” page. Never be afraid to follow your instincts and listen to your heart, especially when it comes to taking care of yourself. We live in such a crazy (yet beautiful) world – we can’t let ourselves fall into the marketing trap of the pharmaceutical industries. It’s a never ending cycle of medicines and magic potions. True health and healing starts from within, and mother nature knows just how to do it! ♥ Wishing you all a beautiful day! XOXO
