In 2014 my life was flipped upside down.

Within two weeks of each other I found out that I lost my job, and that I had a brain tumor. To say the least I was devastated. I had no idea what to do, plus a millions things were running through my brain all at once like: How would I support myself? How would I pay all my medical bills? How in the heck could I have a brain tumor?  Why me?

My family and friends told me not to worry about those things, and that all my focus should be on my health. So, that's what I did. I focused on my health.

Then I made a decision that would change my life forever. I agreed to have my brain tumor surgically removed. (I know you're wondering how that would change my life. Don't worry I'm going to get to that soon). If I didn't proceed with the surgery my doctor said that I would likely go into a coma, and eventually die. He estimated I had the tumor for at least 10 years because of how big it had grown. But there was one thing my doctor said that gave me a lil hope in a situation that seemed so bleak. His words were, "wow you must be a healthy girl because you'd be dead by now."

ABOUT ME

4 yearsHey there! My name is Kisha, and like many of you that are visiting my blog today I needed a lot of help transitioning from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to a Plant Based Diet (PBD).  Okay, I have to admit it was very difficult for me in the beginning, because I didn't want to give up my cheese burgers and french fries. But something was motivating me to take the plunge into the health world. 

What was that? My skin! Yup, I had acne well into my adult life, and I couldn't find any product that would help me get rid of all my breakouts and flareups. 

Until one day, late at night I discovered Kevin Trudeau on an infomercial

 

He was talking about his book called  Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know About .  I had seen his infomercial several times before, but this time I decided to actually listen to what he was saying. He talked about healing diseases with simple natural remedies.

I thought to myself, "if natural remedies could cure diseases then for sure it could help me heal my acne"!

 

So, the next day I headed to Barnes & Nobles and bought his book. To say the least, reading that book changed my life, and I've been on a health journey for over 18 years. It's evolved during that time, but what I'm certain about is this:

Sticking to a plant based diet has help me in so many aspects of my life, and it's helped me become a better person as well.

 

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  Thanks for reading!
