Healing From Allergies, Asthma and Acne With a Vegan Diet…

Today's Wellness Wednesday Spotlight is from a long time vegan who healed her acne, asthma and allergies...all by switching her diet!

There are so many benefits to switching to a vegan diet including incredible, health transformations.  For Wellness Wednesdays I want to feature those who have healed from an illness, disease or health issue from simply changing what they were eating.

Today’s Wellness Wednesday Spotlight comes from Kathleen Kastner, my inspiring friend who has been vegan since 2002. Below is her story:

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY SPOTLIGHT

“I’ve been vegan since 2002. I was already vegetarian due to my love for animals and fish. I was having allergies, asthma and acne and was on an inhaler and nasal steroid. My doctor never asked me the four magic words, ” What are you eating?!”

I learned about the book called Diet for a New America by John Robbins and decided to go vegan to see if it would help my health issues, and it worked! Turns out I was allergic to the dairy. My skin cleared up and I got off my allergy and asthma medicine.

Once I learned about the cruelty of the egg, dairy and veal industry I became vegan for ethical reasons. Veganism is my passion and purpose in life: for the health, the animals and the planet!”

 

Thank you so much Kathleen for sharing your story with us.  If you want to learn more about Kathleen, please visit her Instagram: @Kathleenvegan or check out her Youtube channel.

  1. Yes! Dairy and respiratory issues are totally related. I had pneumonia (complicated by asthma) in February of 2016 and again in June of 2017 and nothing at all since I changed my diet in July of 2017. Bye bye, inhaler!
