The MamaSezz Story: How Healthy Vegan Meals Saved Millie
Millie was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. She was sent home to be on Hospice Care and get her affairs in order. Her daughter, Meg, did not take this sitting down, so she started to educate herself. She was determined to get to the root of the cause and read Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease by Dr. Esselstyn. Soon after, Meg started feeding her mother healthy vegan meals. She followed a strict whole food plant-based diet and ate the meals herself too. As Millie started to heal, Meg noticed that this diet was having a positive effect on her own health as well. The mother-daughter team proved that the right foods can reverse disease. Today, Millie is in her 90's, and has normal heart function. Check out Meg and Millie's Story.

How a Healthy Vegan Diet Put 4 Autoimmune Diseases in Remission
Carolyn suffered from Ulcerative Colitis for over 40 years, along with three other serious auto-immune diseases, and her digestive health was in ruins. Because UC can make life very uncomfortable, Carolyn was on a series of medications to keep the symptoms at bay. The side effects of these medications, coupled with the pain of her condition, made day-to-day life very difficult during flares. Her doctor tired to convince her that diet didn’t play a role, but Carolyn's intuition lead her to cut out gluten. Her daughter, Caroline, who was just learning about a healthy vegan diet in college, convinced her to cut out animal products as well, and so she did! Instantly, she noticed a difference, and so did Caroline!
Today, Carolyn is off all her medications, her blood work is better than ever, and her auto-immune diseases are in remission. Learn more about Carolyn's story.
