Maya suffered with a severe form of eczema since she was a young baby. At the age of one, red, flaky skin broke out all over Maya’s body forcing her mother to resort to the conventional doctor-recommended treatment for eczema, steroid cream.
As supplemental advice, Maya’s pediatrician also recommended removing cow’s milk from her diet and replacing it with goat’s milk (about 15% of infants experience a dairy protein allergy, with common allergic symptoms manifesting on the skin). After doing so, Maya’s mother noticed that it had worked, but this only lasted for a short while.
It wasn’t long before Maya began to experience constant colds, a side effect Maya’s mother figured was due to the steroid cream. Steroid creams have a remarkable skin-penetrating ability which can flood the bloodstream and kill the cells which provide immunity against pathogens. Maya’s mother worried that the cream was only covering up the problem, rather than solving the root of the issue.
At the age of 4, Maya’s eczema returned with a vengeance. Her mother had already decided not to use the steroid cream, and resorted to a naturopathic approach. She cleaned up Maya’s diet by cutting out milk, gluten and refined sugars all together, a tactic which proved beneficial as she watched her daughters eczema disappear yet again.
When Maya turned 7, her eczema flared up again worse than ever before. This time however, Maya was also found to have candida and parasites. In desperation, Maya’s mother went to her diet once again, this time cutting out meat and eggs as well as sugar. But her efforts were to no avail, as symptoms seemed to be getting worse.
After months of playing with Maya’s diet, her mother could see that she was ill from all of their efforts to rid Maya of her candida. She was losing weight rapidly, which her mother attributed to Maya’s gut’s inability to absorb nutrients. It was at this point that she was considering putting Maya back on drugs in fear of losing her daughter.
Once Last Effort To Save Her Daughter
Maya’s mother had tried everything she thought she could, and her daughter’s condition wasn’t getting any better. Right before she decided to put Maya back on drugs, she came across a vegan community on Instagram which posted about how a high-carb, raw vegan diet was showing success in treating candida.
Although this sounded ‘wacky’ to Maya’s mother, she had no other option at that point. She tested out a 10-day banana diet before giving it to Maya, and she noticed she felt fantastic during the program. She immediately started her family on a diet that consisted mainly of fruit, leafy green and healthy fats from things such as avocados, nuts and seeds.
For the past six months, Maya’s skin has completely cleared up since going raw vegan, with only a few tiny dry spots left on her skin. Maya is finally at ease, and her family is feeling the benefits as well.
Today Maya and her family are happy and healthy, traveling the world and documenting their experiences on their YouTube channel, deHappy.

What they learned...
While a definitive consensus about whether or not a plant-based diet is the most beneficial dietary lifestyle is still undecided, many physicians have begun to recognize the health benefits of such a diet.
In 2006, after reviewing data from 87 published studies, authors Berkow and Barnard reported in Nutrition Reviews that a vegan or vegetarian diet is highly effective for weight loss. They also found that vegetarian populations have lower rates of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. In addition, their review suggests that weight loss in vegetarians is not dependent on exercise and occurs at a rate of approximately 1 pound per week.
Another study found that vegetarian diets are nutrient dense, consistent with dietary guidelines, and could be recommended for weight management without compromising diet quality.
The Adventist Health Studies found that vegetarians have approximately half the risk of developing diabetes as non-vegetarians. In 2008, Vang et al reported that non-vegetarians were 74% more likely to develop diabetes over a 17-year period than vegetarians.
The only way to decide whether or not a plant-based diet is right for you is to try it out. A great way to start out is by reducing your meat and animal by-product intake gradually, such as limiting them to 4 days a week. Try switching out your traditional breakfast with a smoothie. Or if you really enjoy eggs for breakfast, try scrambling in some sauteed veggies such as spinach or kale. Analyse how you feel after making these small changes, and if you notice you feel more energized then begin implementing more plant-based recipes into your diet.
Reducing your meat and dairy consumption only a few days a week not only will benefit your own health, but it will also have a massive positive ecological impact on our plantet. Try it out and let us know how it’s going in the comment section below!

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
