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:
“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.
