Episode 11 brings yet another truly incredible recovery story, after spending the majority of her life suffering and in chronic pain, Hermione Reeves speaks with us about how a whole food, plant based diet helped her to overcome:
- Addicted to Pain Killers
- Regular Unexplainable Dislocations
- Obesity & Difficulty Losing Weight
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- (Finally diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome)
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Hormonal Acne
- Hay Fever
Hermione's story is truly heart breaking to listen to which makes her recovery through a low fat, whole food, plant based diet (LFWFPB) even more inspirational.
Hermione speaks so honestly about her initial resistance to transitioning to a LFWFPB diet, along with her challenges, fears, misguided beliefs, challenges, etc... prior to making the change and the many, many benefits she experienced as a incredible 'side effect' of consuming a plant based diet.
Hermione went from requiring up to 6 hospitalisations per year due to ruptured ovarian cysts due to PCOS, and since adopting a LFWFRB diet has finally regulated her menstrual cycle, is no longer in pain and has had no further hospitalisations for ruptured cysts in 12 months!
After spending a lifetime requiring medication to manage her asthma, she no longer takes any asthma medication, she no longer experiences hormonal acne, she no longer experiences chronic constipation, no longer taking daily antihistamines to manage chronic hay fever, she's no longer taking pain medication for Fibromyalgia and she's lost 20 kilograms!!!
What an AMAZING story!!
If you know anyone who is suffering from any of these chronic and debilitating conditions, please share this episode with them and hopefully help give them hope that they may just find some relief through a LFWFPB diet.
Hermione also makes a line of bags made from cork which you can purchase over at:
