I’m a 51 year old vegan who started this journey over 25 years ago. Over the years people have asked me why I became a vegan. Well, it wasn’t initially for health reasons or for animal rights or anything such as that. It was because of vanity!
I sought medical help for my flaky, discolored skin condition. After more than a decade of going to different dermatologists and receiving no relief, I accepted it was just something I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life. But then something really bad happened; I started to lose my hair…but only in certain sections of my head!!
I went to see Dr. Sebi about my conditions as a last resort. After his guidance and herbal treatments I had a full head of hair within one month! My skin condition had reversed itself. All within one month!
Energy levels? Out of the roof. And I had a mental clarity I had never had before. It was like a fog had been lifted off of me. I’m still not sure how to convey this experience in words but it was like I discovered a new way to see the world.
I experienced first hand what a simple and proper change in diet can do for you.
I went from not being able to do a single push up to quitting smoking, becoming involved in the martial arts, gaining a first and second degree black belt, training with the worlds’ best self defense instructor and learning that system to become an international instructor myself, and a nightclub security professional. I can perform push-ups with someone sitting on my back (not recommended), workout regularly and uncover the joys of body weight exercises.,,all because of what I now use to fuel my body, which is plant-based.
When I read Diet for a New America by John Robbins, that was the first book where I was able to see a tie between natural resources, diet, animal rights and what we collectively call “race”. I had always been aware of the issues of race because my mother exposed my brother and myself to such giants as Dr. John Henrik Clark, Dr. Ben, Dr. Ali Mazrui, and Professor George Simmonds. It wasn’t until I read this book, however that I saw how this dietary thing really affects every aspect of our lives and the lives of our people in a direct and indirect manner.
