When I was vegan, I started to believe that I could cure anything if I just ate well enough.
Kriss Carr used a plant-based diet in her battle against cancer. Dr. Esselstyn wrote about how a plant-based approach can prevent and reverse heart disease. Dr. Fuhrman suggests that you can speed up your recovery to the common cold by eating plant-based.
Every holistic person I encountered had some elaborate concoction for curing any ailment:
"Oh, are you knees hurting? You should avoid nightshade vegetables and drink cinnamon."
"You're getting sick? Take this green drink with a ton of ginger and garlic"
It felt like information overload. It felt like I was personally responsible for anything bad that happened to my body.
