So yesterday I had my first doctor’s appointment since I went vegan. As a good patient, I told my doctor because that’s usually what you do when you make a big change in your lifestyle.
I was a little apprehensive since some doctors seem against veganism, but mine was genuinely happy for me! She also noticed how my skin looked much clearer and that I looked more energetic. I also mentioned to her that my seasonal allergies have been much, much milder this year, and I was wondering if it could be due to my new diet. I was told it’s entirely possible. Just to give you an idea, last year, I suffered from seasonal allergies from March to late October. 7 months is a long time and does not feel so good. Now this year, my allergies only started at the end of July, which coincides with ragweed allergy season. It’s not too bad either, since I don’t feel miserable.
She also asked about my full-body rashes that I would get randomly. I told her that as soon as I dropped dairy off my diet, that they disappeared instantly. She confirmed that many people have an hypersensitivity to dairy products. Dairy also made me sleepy, and since I cut it out, I feel like I have more energy.
So now I can safely say that my vegan diet has officially made me healthier!
