Frank and I speak from years of experience enjoying excellent
health as a direct result from “going vegan.” Before learning and
changing our eating habits, we suffered for years from health problems
that we had no idea stemmed from the animal products we were eating.
And our doctors never asked us about our diets! They and we never made
the connection that our health problems were the direct result of the
animal products we were consuming!
For example, for years I not only suffered with Irritable Bowel
Syndrome (IBS), but also with the urinary bladder condition known as
Interstitial Cystitis (IC). If any of my readers have had these
conditions, you know the misery they cause. You read and hear about
“searching for cures” and they hint about “autoimmune disease” as a
cause. Why is it so difficult to admit that taking into our bodies
foreign proteins from animal products may cause this “autoimmune
disease,” and that an easy way to find out is to try going vegan for a
period of time?
Frank went vegan (no animal products) in 1987. A year later, after a
stubborn sore throat would not respond to my doctor’s prescribed
medications, Frank convinced me to drop dairy products (I had stopped
eating all other animal products). As I’ve mentioned before in a Blog,
if we had it to do over again, all dairy products would be the first to
The stubbornness of people clinging to harmful notions and avoiding
the obvious is unbelievable! It seems as though many people would rather
spend lots of money unnecessarily and keep suffering so that they can
feel accepted by their peers, rather than to think and act in their own
best interest, which also happens to coincide with the best interest of
their fellow creatures. To me, this hardhearted attitude is proof that
there is indeed a Satan – the deceiver and father of lies, as the Bible
says. Satan and his demons must be laughing up a storm at the stupidity
of human beings!
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that our becoming born again
believers in the Lord Jesus Christ happened before our change in eating
habits. We thank God that, through His Holy Spirit, He gave us the
compassion and empathy to feel for His other creatures. In turn, our
health improved, and we received many other blessings.
