|Are you or someone you love looking to lower your cholesterol, get off high blood pressure meds, or reverse diseases such as autoimmune, heart disease or type 2 diabetes? I reversed my heart disease by following a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle and now I want to show you how easy it is to be healthy.
This way of eating reverses most disease states because it eliminates inflammation, the root cause of disease. I am very excited to offer a class through Well Elephant that will teach you how to ACE plant-based eating on March 14th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 P.M. It will take place in my home in Austin. ACE stands for AMEND the recipe, COOK without oil and EAT out. If you can master those things, you can be a plant-based pro. You’ll also leave the class with meals and those “weird” ingredients like nutritional yeast.
I’m offering the class to the public $199 but because you are a loyal friend and subscriber, I am offering the class to you for only $99! There are 8 spots in total and only 6 spots are left! This is an incredible offer because you’re going to get about $50 worth of food and the class. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that you’re a subscriber to reserve your discounted spot and fill out the survey. I want to make sure we cook things that you will love! Feel free to reach out with questions. Sending you healing and healthy vibes.
I hope you are doing well! As I said in my very last post, I have been working on my passion project, teaching people how to reverse disease by eating a whole-food, plant-based diet. I reversed my own heart disease by following this way of eating. I have dropped my cholesterol over 110 points, changed the shape of my blood platelets from hard and small to big and round; a sign of reversal and I’ve dropped 20 pounds, all without medication. If you haven’t done so already, please follow me at https://www.wellelephant.com/ a pop-up subscription will come up if you stay on the page for about ten seconds.
I have been doing behind the scenes work for the past months; re-doing my website (almost finished!), creating an online course curriculum (getting there) as well as an in person course (finished!). I am going to send you a special offer to my In Person class tomorrow. Be on the lookout because my friends who have subscribed to Well Elephant and/or My Non-Toxic Life are going to be in for a huge gift tomorrow. I appreciate you and I am thinking of you still and always.
There is no shortage of information out there telling you that you should be eating olive oil and coconut oil. I used to believe that. I also used to be on the verge of having full blown heart disease. Anyone who knew me would have said that I was a clean eater. That’s because we are truly misinformed about what clean eating is.
If you have been following this blog from the beginning you will notice an evolution. I used to eat occasional meat, eggs and dairy. I gave that up. I now eat only a plant-based diet. On top of that, I have also given up oil and avocados. I have dropped my cholesterol 100 points without using any cholesterol lowering medicine. I VERY RARELY have nuts or seeds, they are my big splurge.
Read Dr. Furhman’s article that tells you emphatically why oil is not a health food.
Olive oil is not a healthy fat; it is not a whole food—it is a fattening, low-nutrient, processed food, consisting of 100 percent fat.

It is important to understand how the organic label is being diluted. It is also imperative to understand the implications of the DARK Act that was just signed into law by President Obama.
The most harmful thing is this bill preempts any state labeling laws and reverses the Vermont GMO labeling law that was in effect for a matter of days before being reversed.
Living MaxWell is a great blog by Max Goldberg. He explains what this bill means to consumers. Please read and share.
California wines contain poison. According to Moms Across America, 100% of the wine they tested were positive for Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Round-up weed killer; even the organic wine.
For this reason I recently switched to mostly French and Italian wines. The French wines take some getting used to but are completely worth changing your palate. I’ll take less drinkable over toxins any day.

We have a major health crisis in the United States of America.
Think about all of the families you know. I would venture to say that there is at least one person in each family who suffers from a chronic disease such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, auto-immune disease or gastrointestinal disease.
If they do not suffer from those maladies they may have a condition such as infertility, asthma, allergies or ADHD.
From the Center for Disease Control and Prevention: “As of 2012, about half of all adults – 117 million people- had one or more chronic health conditions.”
From the NIA (National Institutes of Health): “Approximately 69% of adults are overweight or obese, with 78 million adult Americans considered obese.”
Also from NIH: “Fifty-nine percent of adults used prescription drugs in 2011-2012. And 15 percent of them took five or more prescription drugs.”
We have come to accept this as normal. It is not. How can we accept that half of us have chronic disease, 59% of us are on prescription drugs and 69% of us are overweight? Continue reading “Take Back Your Health”
