Like many of us, through the years you have heard of or have a family member with diabetes.
In February 2015, after being sick, swollen ankles, passed out, and after several doctor’s appointments…a change was needed for my survival! The doctor informed me that I did not have diabetes, but I needed to change my diet before I become diabetic. My A1C was not the best, but no indication of a diabetic person. Moreover, my blood level was low…almost anemic, but no. So, one could see my health was on a decline.
I told my husband I will not be a recipient of diabetes and a diseased body. Thus I began my journey to cleanse the internal part of my temple [body].
I began my voyage by using Queen Afua natural products. Then, essential oils, and Chinese herbal teas for 21 days. My life has not been the same.
I began my passage to educate, empower and change ME first and then extend assistance to others.
Mentally, I was concerned, because of how diabetes run rapid among my immediate and extended family. I have seen the effect of this disease called DIABETES: swollen legs, amputated parts of the body, protrude lips, vision, etc. The death toll does not make it any easier. I thought there must be a way to survive and halt this thing called DIABETES.
I visited the doctor one month later after being discharge from the hospital. He was encouraged by my progress and asked to see me again in a week. He suggested that I read a book Fork over Knives on Netflix and consume a Low Glycemic Index meal plan. What I found to be truth is…it’s a “lifestyle change”. Eat veggies, whole grain foods, legumes (beans), lean meats [not at all or once a week], exercise and fruits….pretty simple right. Avoid non-whole grain breads, potatoes and FRIED foods.
I studied under Queen Afua Wellness Institute and certified aromatherapy program and became certified in both fields. This is my life now, to inspire, educate, and empower others.
