Music Alright this is John Kohler with okraw, today we have another exciting episode for you, and we’re coming at you from the 2014 Woodstock Food Festival. I’ve met so many different cool people here at the Woodstock Food Festival and today I wanted to share with you guys one of them that I met not at this year’s, but prior years Woodstock Food Festivals, and she’s an awesome lady here, and her name is Janelle LeMoine. You can check her out on Instagram and YouTube at Mangomove. And she’s been into raw foods now for nearly two years 100 percent, and the reason why.
I wanted to bring her on the show today is because she healed a disease in her body that many people may live with for the rest of their life, and there possibly being no known medical cure for, it’s actually called endometriosis. And if you know what endometriosis is, you possibly have it, maybe you’re watching this tutorial and if you don’t, we’re going to find out what it is because I have no clue. So Janelle what is endometriosis So endometriosis is when there’s certain cells that line uterus that are called endometrial.
Cells. And instead of those cells growing on the inside of the uterus like they’re supposed to, they grow on the outside of the uterus and latch onto organs and scar, so they can latch onto your colon, your ovaries, your Fallopian tubes, your rectum, and they can just attach onto those and scar, and I had very severe contraction episodes with it. I would bleed for months straight. I got diagnosed with it through a laparoscopy surgery because they actually can’t tell if you physically have endometriosis without going inside of you and looking. So I had that done and then I was put on really heavy medication.
Living with Endometriosis NO MORE! How Jannelle Got Rid of her Symptoms
To try and control it, which was not working at all. So is there any cure from the medical system for this situation or do people live with this for their whole life or do they live actually a shortened life, because it sounds like it’s very painful, not comfortable and can cause a lot of problems. It can definitely cause infertility, that’s one of the main things I know that it can cause, but there is no cure, that’s what I was told from my medical doctor when I was.
Going to a medical doctor for this disease, and so I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life, there was a possibility of becoming infertile, so it was a pretty scary thing to feel like I had to live with for the rest of my life because it was so painful and so detrimental to my everyday life. So in what ways did it actually affect your life I definitely couldn’t go to classes and schooling or basically I would have to be bedridden all the time, and I was dealing with other medical issues at that time as.
Well, so it was definitely just another blow to my system where I would have these episodes where I just physically couldn’t leave my bed from a fetal position clenching every muscle in my body so I wouldn’t feel the pain I had to feel and when I was menstruating for months straight it was very difficult to know when I had to be prepared for that, because it would just flare up unknowingly, so that was another issue, but it was definitely very hard. Wow. Yeah it sounds very difficult. So how.
Did you turn all this around I mean you look fine and great today and healthy and all. So I came to this Woodstock Food Festival in 2012 because I knew that raw foods was the answer to help me to heal myself because I was dealing with this and another, I was dealing with chronic migraines and IBS as well. So I knew I had to come here to learn about the lifestyle I was trying to follow which was the 801010 diet, and through coming to this festival, I then went to do a water fast with Dr. Douglas Graham in 2013 in January,.
And through that fast I did 25 days on water only, and I through that fast have basically cured my endometriosis, my chronic migraines, and IBS. I no longer have any symptoms of any of those, I haven’tit completely changed my entire life, I’ve never felt healthier, I don’t have to deal with my chronic pain and sickness like I used to deal with, I had all of those issues for six years straight, it was so painful, and now I’m actually able to live my life thanks to this festival, thanks to Dr. Graham and the water.
Fast and finding out how to properly follow the 801010 diet through that experience as well. And I’m just so grateful because I’m actually living my life for the first time, and it feels really great to be able to do that. Wow, I mean, just like Janelle, I too, my life was saved by the power of raw foods and simply eating fruits and vegetables as what I eat. I had spinal meningitis which was actually caused by complement immune deficiency which is basically an immune disorder that the doctors.
Blamed on my genes, that I had a weak immune system that I could come down with any kind of illness or sickness, and because my immune system was not able to fight it off I might lose my life. So after I got through the spinal meningitis I can only say through higher powers I needed to learn how to basically detoxify my body, get all the stuff and the junk that I’ve been accumulating over the years out, so this is kind of what Janelle did with her water fast, I did it with juice fasting and colon cleansing. And then after that I got.
Actually into the raw foods and into juicing and eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. So Janelle, you’ve never had any problems with migraines or anything after changing your diet, is that correct That’s correct, I definitely haven’t. I actually had to go to a gynecologist to make sure, because I haven’t menstruated since the fast. And some people could think Oh my gosh, what’s happening, you’re not menstruating, that’s a problem, you need to go see someone. So per my mom’s request I went to go see a gynecologist and to see what was happening in here, but I felt.
Completely fine. So I got an ultrasound done to see and to make sure I was still ovulating and still fertile, and I totally am completely ovulating, I have eggs, and I’m fertile and so, it’s definitely good to see that and to know that I’m very fertile and that I’m ovulating and that nothing’s happening that’s wrong. So now you’re able to have kids one day, do you want to have kids one day At this point in time I’m not wanting to have kids, but maybe in the future. I definitely.
Experienced a lot of the pain I feel that comes with childbirth already so, I’m good for right now. But now she has the ability to have kids if she does choose to in the future, and if she would have stuck on the traditional path that the doctors had said, high probability that she might not be fertile today. So Janelle, what would you say to a lady out there that’s watching that may have this specific condition that you got over, what would you recommend to them if you were to do it again today,.
What would you do I mean to do what I did again which was that water fast, that completely just 100 percent made it so that I wasn’t struggling with endometriosis anymore, as well as following this raw food diet I believe that if you’re following a diet comprised completely of raw fruits and vegetables and nuts and seeds that you can help kick start and cure the ailments and diseases that you’re dealing with, I feel like this diet, I’ve seen it change so many people’s lives, and it’s truly.
What I think we’re supposed to biologically be eating, and so I’m very grateful for it, and to be able to have found this diet, and I really hope that if anyone has endometriosis that you can see me as an example that it can be cured, and that you don’t have to suffer with it, you don’t have to suffer with the pain and the bleeding and the medications. The funny thing is, when I actually got diagnosed with endometriosis, and then I was put on medications was then what kick started these contraction episodes and the pains and the.
Bleeding. I never had those severe episodes until I got put on medication for it, so that was something that didn’t seem right. I knew, why am I now having all these intense symptoms I never used to have So then I completely stopped my medication I was on right before I went out to fast, and I haven’t taken any one medication since. So it’s definitely, if you allow your body to heal, it will. And if you give it the energy to heal by fasting or juice feasting, it will use that energy towards healing your ailments and making you.
Feel better and giving you a better life. Wow, I mean yeah, I definitely agree, fasting can be very helpful, be sure to check my channel for other tutorials on fasting. Actually one of the things I did for my parents, because they’re getting older and they have also had some health challenges, you know the first thing I did was to send them to a fasting center that’s in their area. Actually my dad went first, probably ten years ago or something now, and he did a 30 day water fast, and then I sent my mom there, and the doctors.
Decided it was not the proper thing for her to do to water fast, so they put her on a juice fast, fully medically supervised, so be sure to check other tutorials for the episode on that. So Janelle if there’s somebody out there that wants to contact you or learn more about what you went through, do you have a blog or website where you share this process, and maybe are you going to write a book someday about this I would love to write a book one day about my healing journey and maybe some recipes.
In there. On my YouTube channel I have a vlog every day out at my water fast with Dr. Douglas Graham. I did a vlog every day of what I was feeling and my symptoms, and the recovery I had out there afterwards. And so those vlogs are on there, I just did a watermelon island, and I have all t hose vlogs, I did a 21 days on only watermelon, and I have tutorials up of my dancing, because that’s my passion in life, that’s on my channel as well and my.
Instagram I post very daily on pictures that inspire you to eat more raw fruits and vegetables with recipes that I make. And so Mango Move is my Instagram and YouTube channel name. So you can find me on there and Facebook is my name Janelle LeMoine. Awesome, she’s an awesome young lady, be sure to check her out, I’m glad I’ve met her two years ago at the Woodstock now, and she’s following the path and helping to encourage and teach others, and just simply share her story, because we all have a story,.
And it’s my true belief that if we eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and get in a more natural diet, the body literally heals itself, right The drugs don’t do that. As you heard Janelle say they caused extra effects. Now were these side effects, or were these just effects because with any chemical or thing you put in your body there’s always a reaction too. So yeah, start eating a fresh fruit and vegetable diet, detoxify, get on track, and I’m confident, so many people I’ve talked to I’ve heard testimonials from have healed.
