Happy Earth Day 2017!

 
✌️🌍HAPPY EARTH DAY🌏✌️

Don’t think of yourself as insignificant when it comes to taking care of our planet. We make the choice 3x a day on what we eat…choose the compassionate, cruelty free way and not only save the animals lives & the planet, but improve your health as well! 💚🐥🐷🐮🐠Here’s a few statistics to put it all in perspective…

​Changing your diet from a meat eating diet to a vegan one reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year! 🍒 The meat, egg, and dairy industry produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions. 🍊 A meat eating diet creates 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diet of vegans. 🍌 It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 lb of meat VS. 1 lb of wheat using 25 gallons. 🍉 1 calorie from animal protein requires 11 TIMES as much fossil fuel as one calorie of plant protein. 🍍 A vegan diet requires 300 gallons of water per day VS. a meat eating diet which requires 4,000 gallons per day! 🍑 You’d save more water by not eating 1 lb of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 MONTHS. 🌽 Raising animals for food uses 30% of the earth’s land mass…that’s about the same size as Asia! 🍇More than 260 million acres of the U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals. 🍐 The equivalent of 7 football fields of land are bulldozed every minute to create more room for farm animals. 🍎 70% of grain and cereals grown in U.S. are fed to farm animals. 🍋 It requires 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat!​

Random Question… Who else hasn’t shaved their legs in forever because of healing eczema?? 😂😂😂 It’s literally been YEARS for me! At one point my legs stopped growing hair all together because of terrible flares, as it’s healed the hair has grown in more and more. I found no reason to bother shaving because A. I didn’t want to irritate the skin more even if it was healing nicely & B. I wasn’t showing off my legs like that anyways, just too self conscious at times. I was noticing just yesterday how smooth my legs are becoming, barely any flaking, even the thickened “elephant skin” is smoothing out…and I said to myself, “wow I might actually be able to shave soon!” 😂 Gotta love the little victories in this healing process! I think I’ll actually be looking forward to shaving once I’m comfortable enough. I pray you all are well today, staying strong and keeping the faith in your body’s natural ability to heal 🙏 I know how aggravating and lengthy this process is (I’m 5 years TS free! So BELIEVE me I know!) but hang in there…each day is a step closer to healing and a day more that you’re free from the bondage of topical steroids! Celebrate the mini victories and give gratitude for each day, good or bad. Trust in your body, it is your temple, it knows exactly what it’s doing! My sayings are “this time set for healing is truly only a fraction of your life” and “it didn’t take overnight for the toxicity to accumulate, so it won’t take overnight to heal…but it WILL heal!” Keep those things in mind and always have patience.

Peace & Love to you all 💜✌️
