I always thought of myself as special. Growing up, I felt that I was different. Set apart from others because of my faith, and my ability to research ways to cure myself. My diet was meat rich. And how I loved steak, shrimp, chicken and lamb. I looked forward to steak in the morning with eggs smothered in cheese and bacon, with a side of pancakes and a large coffee. I would consume 3 or 4 coffees each day and a case of coke. A fast food lunch was all my busy schedule would allow and a meat centred dinner would be the norm. To round out my day, sour cream and onion potato chips, popcorn and chocolates while watching television before going to sleep. I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day and drank often. I had no drinking problem because I had no problem drinking.
As I got older, I started having the aches and pains that other people that I thought weren’t as special had. It seemed that at 40, everything changed and I started falling apart. The glue that held everything in place and kept everything working perfectly started to loose its stick.
On my way back from a road trip to Calgary, Alberta in 2011 I listened to a seminar by Leo Schreven that brought a Biblical health message to light. In some ways it was a radical change from my day-to-day diet however it made sense. At the end of that road trip I quit smoking and drinking alcohol and made a few other adjustments.
I still have a long way to go as I try to eliminate meat from my diet. You can imagine how difficult that will be. However, eliminating milk and practically eliminating cheese from my diet was easier than I thought.
