If you're living with Lupus, more and more people are discovering their bodies recover significantly once they remove saturated animal fats from their diet and switch to a diet high in plant foods. 

Marie Zeal is one such story but you can also check out Episode 30 with Joyce Hale who is another incredible Lupus success story. 

Marie had been living with Lupus for 7 years prior to discovering a plant based diet and her transformation, every muscle in her body aching constantly, along with chronic and debilitating joint pain. Marie was surviving on a cocktail of medication when she stumbled across the documentary Hungry For Change which changed her life over night. 

These days Marie loves juicing, working out, travelling and living her life to the fullest, free from the medications and symptoms that had been plaguing her life, in fact she hasn't even caught a cold since changing her diet!
