How a Vegetarian Resolved Underweight and Rosacea Problems
August 27, 2003
Since the 1980s I was sick and extremely thin. I suffered from malabsorption,
debilitating headaches, protein deficiency and rosacea.
I heard about Dr. Mercola on a radio station and finally
came to see him when my headaches got so bad that I couldn’t
think. After starting Dr. Mercola’s program I felt better
within three weeks!
I had been a vegetarian, close to vegan, for 14 years and
had also tried eating macrobiotically, which consisted of
a high-grain, no-sugar, mostly raw diet. However, I found
out through Metabolic
Typing that I am a Mixed Type and needed to add meat to
my diet. I also added raw
eggs, which I had not been eating previously, and fish
Dr. Mercola recommended that I cut grains from my diet as
well, and start juicing green vegetables. Although I had juiced
in the past, I had been using a lot of carrots in the juice.
The improvements I felt after implementing these changes
were amazing! After I cut out grains and made the other changes
my headaches were gone, the rosacea improved and, most importantly,
I gained much-needed weight. I went from 97 pounds to 107
pounds, which is a huge improvement for me.
After my great results, I recommended that my husband, who
has high blood sugar, reduce grains in his diet, and he also
improved after doing this.
The program was not difficult for me to follow, although
I am naturally a disciplined person when it comes to diet.
I did use EFT when I had
a craving for bananas, and it worked to get rid of my craving!
Although I’ve always been a high-energy person, I have
even more energy after starting Dr. Mercola’s program,
and it is something that I can live with and improve upon
in my life.
This program has truly given me my life back!
