My Vegan Experiment

TELEMMGLPICT000138591023-xlarge_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqaHd6X3lW3lGv45Ug3tlONf_OGHOsQ32iExBHnajUJiwIt all began with pain in my liver/gallbladder area.  I went to my medical and my naturopathic doctors, and they didn’t find anything amiss.   Since I had my gallbladder removed 20 years ago, I knew that it wasn’t gallbladder disease.  I suspected that I wasn’t processing fat efficiently in my body as a result of that lost gallbladder.  I also felt I  wasn’t absorbing the nutrients in the food I was eating.

My intuition first guided me to start drinking celery juice every morning and to cut animal fat out of my diet.  I thought, all right.  I’ll experiment with this new way of eating and see how things go.  At first, I was eating a ton of raw foods, and even though I felt energetically lighter, I became incredibly bloated because my body could not process that many raw veggies.  So I started to research and eat an ayurvedic diet according to my body type, and I began to feel better.

Here we are a month later, and the pain in my liver has reduced by about 90%, and I am happier than I have ever been.  I have dropped a few pounds and am feeling better in my body.  I am not as stiff and sore as I once was either.  My skin looks better, and my hair isn’t as oily.  I find I am having a great deal of fun eating this way because I have to think beyond my usual go-to foods like meat, dairy, and eggs.

As long as I keep feeling better, I am going to keep eating this way.  If my intuition guides me otherwise then I may, once again, include animal proteins back in.  But, for now, I like this new me.
