Elizabeth was happily shocked when her lifelong crippling menstrual symptoms disappeared
Ever since I had my very first period at the age of 14 the pain, and accompanying symptoms, were so agonizing that it was borderline traumatic. The pain was so unbearable even prescription pain medication did not help. In addition to the pain, I had shivers, sweating, vomiting, fainting, you name it. I missed several days of school and work as a consequence.
After the first month on Eat To Live I still had discomfort, but I noticed all I needed was a few OTC pill for the pain. After four months, I was shocked when my period arrived and I didn't even know it had come. For me, this was revolutionary!
When I had my annual checkup with my gynecologist a few months later, she asked me how my severe dysmenorrhea was and then asked if she should refill my pain prescription. "Actually," I told her "I don't have menstrual symptoms anymore."
When she asked how that was possible, I told her that I had stopped eating all animal products, and instead ate more fruits, vegetables, and healthy foods. To my shock she laughed and brushed me off and told me that "becoming a vegetarian is not a cure for menstrual cramps." It is too bad that doctors are so undereducated when it comes to nutrition and its effects on the human body.
I want to thank you, Dr Fuhrman, for literally changing my life and making it better.
