Should we be taking Multivitamins?

By |June 13th, 2018|Vegan|0 Comments|

Hi, Wild Heart!
The week i went vegetarian (at 11 years old) was the week i began heavily supplementing.

I would take up to 13 supplements throughout the day to “really make sure i was getting what I needed.” Because, you know, I’d decided to be vegetarian, and if you were vegetarian you couldn’t get enough […]

Hey Gorgeous, soon to be Glowing Creature!
We all care about our internal health, of course—immune system, gut, blood, etc. But we don’t see these things every day.
What do we see? External indicators.
Wrinkles. Or smooth skin. Dryness. Or a glowing, soft complexion. Sagging. Or tone and vitality.

Well, that “rice diet” was intended to treat kidney disease, so Dr. Kempner modified it to see if it couldn’t be a weight loss solution too.

“You have to get it done, Donna. Your mother and grandfather have skin cancers cut off every year!”

Their reasoning? “White meats” are supposedly less hazardous to cholesterol levels and heart health.
