Discovering the world of juicing and the extraordinary health benefits of eating whole-foods has had such a profound effect on my life. I was amazed to learn that this lifestyle could not only cure my Type II Diabetes, my joint problems and any other problem I had, it could also cure cancer! CANCER!! I am in awe of whole foods and the power they hold and could not wait to jump on the juicing bandwagon and get my life and health in order. I knew that it would be hard to give up my diet of two 2-litres of pops, all the processed foods and my daily meals of pasta and potatoes but I was on a mission!
Little did I know that my SAD (Standard American Diet) was actually a drug I used to ease the emotional pain that must have started back when I was a child. I was aware of my issues but I really thought I had worked through them and was... okay. However, they all came to the surface when I began juicing. Why? Because I was trying to let go of the drug that soothed me. Every emotion I couldn't deal with was buried in pasta, potatoes and cheese.
