In Episode 1, We talk with Mai Gabarda to let her share her story on how she is overcoming Lupus through a plant based diet. She shares her story on how she was diagnosed with Lupus shortly after giving birth and how she was told there is no cure. To give a background, Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks normal healthy tissues. These attacks can be targeted to the joints, kidneys, skin, lungs, heart and blood cells.
We met Mai for the first time during our Going Super workshop in May 2013, right after she decided to pursue a 100% plant based diet to try and heal herself from disease. At the moment of this recording, Mai is already on remission and already recovering from Lupus. Listen to our first episode to find out about her amazing progress, how it went and how she is now.
In this episode Mai discusses
- How she was diagnosed with Lupus just after giving birth to her baby
- How she was told that there was no cure for Lupus
- How she tried a vegetarian lifestyle to cure the disease but ended up struggling with cravings
- How she adopted a 100% Plant based diet to overcome her disease
