Felicia avoided a litany of prescribed medications and invasive procedures to treat her blood disorder; following Super Immunity her platelets are normal for the first time in 30 years
I was suffering with a rare blood disorder that caused me to have high platelets for over 30 years. I finally got an official diagnosis in 2016 that it was JAK2. The doctors at the Number One Cancer center in American began giving me a long synopsis of what my future would look like; bone marrow biopsy, bone marrow transfusion, high powered toxic drugs, possibly chemotherapy. I literally thought I would pass out when my doctor began explaining what I needed to do. Out of all this information I heard him say " depending on how your immune system responds."
I refused the "treatments" and began my quest to find out how I could boost my immune system naturally. I promise, it was divine intervention. I came across Dr. Fuhrman’s book Super Immunity. I read it and re-read it. With the knowledge that I gained, I began to adopt a 100 percent whole food plant- based life.
My results in one year. My platelets are now within normal range for the first time in over 30 years! I used to see my oncologist every 3 months, then every 6 months. Now just once per year. I told my doctor exactly what I did (adopting a whole food plant -based diet) to begin healing my body. I thought he'd be excited. He was like okay and he still tries to push prescriptions on me just “in case." I just refuse and tell him "I got this." I sure wish excellent nutrition was the number one prescription for all patients.
More of my results in one year. Blood pressure was 152/74 now 106/68; overall total cholesterol 110; A1C is normal 5.1 (it was borderline before); lost 68 pounds (I'm at the half way mark now); was borderline anemic, no longer anemic. I take zero medications. I walk a minimum 7 miles per day. I ride my bike 30 miles a week. Now I consider myself almost 58 years young.
I read Dr. Fuhrman’s book and listen to the audiobook every six months to keep my knowledge fresh. I've given away over 20 copies and keep several in my trunk at all times to share with others.
Sorry my story is so long. I'm just so darn happy and wanted to share.
