Delicious
(NaturalNews) Susan used to have bad allergies, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, panic attacks and plantar fasciitis. The list goes on. Growing up, her acne was so severe that her siblings called her "pizza face." She was also very overweight. Her complications frequently required the use of crutches. However, within nine months of adopting a macrobiotic lifestyle comprised of whole, living foods, she says she lost approximately 50 pounds as well as a tumor that was in her back. These days, she stands before crowds telling them of her journey, free of crutches and full of life.

Susan, a registered nurse, explains that those within her profession would often gloss over her series of illnesses with dismissive "you'll be fine" comments. Not willing to merely live with and accept it, she says "something inside of me always believed in the more natural route."

Additionally, she recalls growing up and seeing family members always sorting their pills in their compartmentalized day-of-the-week sections thinking she'd "do whatever it takes to live a life of not taking pills."

Taking the steps towards better health

She discusses her gratitude for Arnold Kauffman, a raw food and wellness advocate, who helped her through her food lifestyle changes. Kauffman outlines his philosophy on his website, referencing Dr. George Schaller's book, Year of the Gorilla. While demonstrating that the gorilla is not the destructive, savage beast often believed, the book also focuses on the naturalist way of life, outlining how gorilla's don't eat other animals, not even insects or mice. Kauffman feels that humans can learn a lesson from these primates. He's also adamant about the fact that people were "born of no heating devises" within their bodies, further suggesting that a healthy diet should be void of cooking and heating.

Susan believes in his words, something that many other health-conscious people around the world obviously share as well. She says that her way of eating is a far cry from the traditional American diet that's loaded with fast food consumption, packaged and processed foods. She too, feels that people can learn from animals in the wild that live out their lives with optimal health and energy right up until they pass away.

Healthy words of advice

Her advice for those seeking to lose weight and cure illness as she has? "Ease into it gradually to allow the body to detox." She explains that will allow people to be more inclined to keep up with it, letting people get used to whole and living foods while their body flushes out the sugary, processed, toxic ones they are so used to.

Finally, she urges everyone to remember that the cells in our bodies "know only two things: love and how to be their best." Susan urges individuals to focus on the power behind that final statement. In short, every cell is always trying to be its best. Adopting a dietary lifestyle allows our cells to function at their very best will help us to overcome our health conditions and realize improved physical and mental performance.
