Lc discovered the benefits of a plant-based diet in 2020 when searching for a solution for her cancer, endometriosis and her husband's high cholesterol . The proof was in the lab work, her husband’s cholesterol numbers dropped to the point that he got off of his meds and she was endometriosis and cancer free since then.
Inspired by her personal experience and similar stories of others around the country, Lc became a Food For Life Instructor in 2022. In addition to offering Food For Life classes in the Northeast Delaware area, she also offers private culinary coaching in the comfort of people’s homes and personal chef services for those who are too busy or unable to prepare meals themselves.
I always had a fear of losing my husband at a young age, since I lost my dad to a heart attack when he was only 37 years old.
Having said that, I was always trying to find a way to keep my husband and myself healthy.
In the beginning of 2020 before the pandemic started, I was suffering with so much pain in my abdomen , the pain was very sharp and unbearable. I got my diagnosis of endometriosis and the course of treatment was a surgery to burn those lesions.
The surgeon tried to clear the area with surgery, however, she said that most of the lesions were in a very sensitive area and the best course of action was to have hysterectomy. This made my husband and I very upset since I was only 35 years old.
Prayerfully we were trying to find other alternatives, which the doctor said there were none. Right around the same time that I was dealing with that pain and discomfort, my ENT doctor asked me to get a biopsy on my thyroid, since the nodule that I had around my thyroid for the past 4 years had grown. After my biopsy, they informed me that I have thyroid cancer and I would have to have a total thyroidectomy.
We were in total shock! In the back of my mind, I thought we were eating healthy and following a good diet. You see, going back to 2019, I was introduced to ketogenic diet and I was losing weight on it which was amazing, since I always have had an issue with my weight management. I thought I found the answer, however, one year later I was diagnosed with cancer and endometriosis. I was wondering why? What is the cause of these diseases if I am eating so “healthy”?
As I mentioned, prayerfully my husband and I were asking God to show us alternatives, especially for the hysterectomy part. That was when one of my husband's clients told him about the power of plants and how eating healthy will help us to reverse most of our diseases. We decided to give a plant based lifestyle a try and see how that goes.
The hardest part for me was dairy, especially CHEESE. We watched so many great documentaries and started reading the book written by Dr. Neal Barnard called The Cheese Trap. That was when my eyes were opened up about the truth hiding behind all the lies we've been told.
I went through with the thyroidectomy. After my surgery we changed our lifestyle and became 100% plant based. While I was recovering from thyroidectomy, I noticed that my endometriosis pain was getting much better to the point that I was not feeling any pain. That was when I went back to my OBGYN doctor and was wondering what just happened. She said that I am totally endometriosis free, the same doctor that said it is impossible to get rid of it without surgery. That was when we truly believed in what Hippocrates, the Greek founder of western medicine, said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
At the same time, my husband's cholesterol went totally down to the point that he came off of his meds after being on it for 5 years. His diabetes got better and his blood pressure came under control, as well as, his kidney dysfunction was totally reversed.
This is my story and I will stick to it.
