  • Could you use a transformation?  Have you lacked some in taking good care of yourself? 
    If you do need one, please read the following experience.  This man survived something that almost killed him and has transformed his life as well as his entire body.
    Recently I had an appointment in Little Rock.  My son took me, and afterward we went to Whole Foods.  I love that place.  It has such of variety of so many health producing— produce and products.
    This time I noticed a large display for Vita-Mix.  Vita Mix is probably the best blender/food processor in the world.  I had one for about 30 years and would love a new one.
    Anyway, after gathering some produce I went over there.  The Vita-Mix person wasn’t there, but soon he came back and began setting up for his next demonstration.  He was putting fruit and even vegetables in his Vita-Mix and explained nutritionally why he put each one in.  He was quite knowledgeable.
    I asked him some questions, and he began to tell me his experience.  Nearly 3 years before he was 50 pounds over weight, was eating a terrible diet, and his wife kept telling him he was going to have a stroke. 
    One day he did.  He said it was like someone made a line completely down the center of his entire body.  On the right side he became very numb.
    He realized he was having a stroke, which he was, a massive one.  Fortunately, for him it didn’t kill him.  But it did give him the opportunity to make a change—a real transformation.
    He did.
    Now he eats lots of plant based raw whole foods.
    I asked him if that meant he was a vegetarian.  He said no, not completely because every once in a while he wanted and had a rib eye.  But, the majority of his diet is plant based whole foods.
    When asked if he had any residual effects from his stroke, he said yes.  He does have some residuals of it.  His right arm has some numbness, and if he was stopped by the police and asked to walk heel to toe – showing he had good balance, he couldn’t do it, as he doesn’t have good balance.
    This gentleman has undergone a total and complete transformation.
    He is a tall man, and he doesn’t look as if he has an ounce of extra fat on him, since he lost his extra 50 lbs.  His blood pressure has gone from 280/150 to a healthy 128/60.
    Page 2 of 2 - It is very possible to have a total transformation.  You could too, if that is what is needed, but don’t wait until you are at death’s door to make your change.  You may not get your second chance if you let it go that far.
    The gentleman uses his Vita-Mix every day, making wonderful smoothies, total juice, soups and many more plant based recipes. 
    He didn’t tell me, but I assumed that his wife was happy and breathing much easier now.  Maybe she has made a transformation too.
