About Lauren

Hi there, I’m Lauren!

I’m thrilled you’ve stumbled upon my site, ForeverHealthyJourney.com. This isn’t just a website; it’s the chronicle of my personal voyage from the fatigue that once shadowed my day-to-day life, to the invigorating energy that fuels me now. I’ve been on this path since 2001 when I was told I had Chronic Fatigue.

Back then, I was told there was no cure, a statement that only ignited my determination to find relief and, hopefully, recovery. My resolve set me on a quest through the bewildering maze of medical opinions and treatments; from specialist to specialist, blood tests to endoscopies, each step brought me closer to the truth that lay hidden in my diet.

It was a naturopath who finally set me on the right road. Cutting out sugars and boosting my vitamin intake marked the beginning of a significant turnaround. I still remember the moment that changed my outlook entirely – seeing my blood cells live on a screen, struggling and unhealthy. I felt an immediate need to rescue them. It was that awakening that sparked the series of changes leading me to where I am today.

So, standing here at the beginning of ForeverHealthyJourney, I’m eager to dive into my story, and more so, into the transformative world of the lectin-free diet. Through my experiences and the knowledge I’ve accumulated, it’s my hope that this space will serve as your guide and companion in the search for sustained health and vitality.

Discovering My Path to Wellness

I remember the frustration like it was yesterday, grappling with Chronic Fatigue and desperately seeking a cure. Conventional medicine wasn’t giving me the answers I needed. I underwent blood tests, colonoscopies, endoscopies, and a seemingly endless parade of doctors’ appointments. Nothing seemed to work until I met one life-changing naturopath.

My naturopath offered a different viewpoint, a new perspective focusing on the food I was eating. Cutting out sugars and boosting vitamins wasn’t just a dietary change; it was a full-scale life alteration. The moment when I saw my live blood cells projected on a screen, they looked lethargic and different shapes (they were meant to be round), almost as if they were crying out for help. That’s when my commitment to change really solidified.

Fast forward to a critical moment in 2018; despite my improvements, I was still dealing with occasional stomach pains and energy problems. A food intolerance test revealed high sensitivities to dairy and egg. Once I eliminated them from my diet, the pains in my stomach were less frequent. It was just another puzzle piece fitting into place, proving that what I ate directly impacted how I felt.

Now, you’re probably curious about how the lectin-free lifestyle came into play. Stay with me; that’s a revelation that led to even more breakthroughs in my quest for a vibrantly healthy life. It all began with a gift from a close friend and a book that I, initially, was skeptical about.

The Lectin-Free Revolution: A New Perspective on Healthy Eating

When my close friend handed me “The Plant Paradox” book for Christmas in 2019, I’ll admit, I was skeptical. How could the vegetables I’d revered for so long be contributing to my discomfort? But I’m someone who’s always open-minded and eager to learn about health, so I decided to give the book a chance. As I delved into its pages, each claim resonated with me, creating a form of clarity I had been missing in my health journey.

I tentatively started modifying my diet, adopting a lectin-free lifestyle in phases. It wasn’t an overnight transformation – it demanded patience and persistence. But with every passing week, I felt my energy levels rising. I was no longer the person who was dictated by their next wave of fatigue. Instead, I was becoming the master of my own vitality.

In tandem with dietary changes, I began incorporating supplements mentioned in the book. To my surprise, they synergized perfectly with my new eating habits, further enhancing my feeling of well-being.

But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Dining out and visiting friends became a strategic game of avoiding lectins. That’s when I discovered Dr. Gundry’s ‘Lectin Shield.’ This supplement became my secret ally, offering me protection when I didn’t have full control over the menu.

My belief in the lectin-free diet solidified as it was no longer just about managing symptoms; it was about thriving. I watched as my relationship with food transformed from one of necessity to one of passion and, ultimately, joy.
