Here is a crash course in AP Biology, but more importantly some perspective on what the immune system really is and how immunity boosting foods help you build natural health. What is it that you need to defend yourself against foreign invaders and learn how to prevent illness whether it is the coronavirus or some other type of bacteria or microbe. Eating the right foods and nutrients are critically important, but even more important is to avoid the things that interfere with your immune system. There are specific aspects of immunity like antibodies and white blood cells, but there is also a more general whole body aspect of health and immunity that you need to understand in order to boost immune system optimally.
Supermarket Secrets is going behind the scenes again to reveal how the supermarkets are using the latest technology and science to bring us our food. In this series, Gregg Wallace and consumer journalist Nikki Fox discover how much the internet is transforming the way we shop and the food in our trolleys.

My name is Rebecca, and I have been vegan for the animals since 2009, but still continued to get very sick. I began my raw vegan fruitarian journey on October 12, 2014 to battle “incurable” debilitating Multiple Sclerosis, in addition to Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism, Hypoglycemia (pre-diabetes), High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Alcoholism, Benzo Withdrawal/Damage (as prescribed), Caffeine Addiction, Panic Attacks, Anxiety, Depression, Acid Reflux, Obesity, Pansinusitis, Sleep Apnea, and Narcolepsy. I initially lost 80 pounds, quit all medications, regained function of my body and mind, and found new purpose in sharing this healing message with anyone it may help.
My Vegan Medical Doctor: Dr. Linda Carney (Buda, Texas)
My Vegan Dentist: Dr. M. Sylvester Gonzales (Round Rock, Texas)

How to transition to the plant-based diet is to research, read books like the China study by dr. Campbell which shows the benefits of the plant-based diet. But where am I gonna get my protein Ralph? Chia seeds a complete source of protein III live, has more protein than beef. So does spirulina. So there are plenty of plant-based sources of protein but also find out why you want to go vegan. I’m doing it because I sincerely love animals, not just the dog down the road or the cat down the road. I love all animals and we have to protect animals, what is the third simple step to go vegan. Surround yourself with other vegans, people who love food, plant-based foods. Get out there, start networking, go to vegan festivals, start to realize that being vegan gives you more energy. People are happier, less anxiety, I’m one of those people and then deep divers, well you just say feels so good to be a live baby. Can I get a hello beautiful deep divers?

IBS affects over 11% of the global population, (that’s one in every 9 people you meet!!) so let’s not be embarrassed about it! I want this channel to be a safe, open and kind place for people dealing with IBS. We’re far from alone, so let’s ask questions, share advice and feel better together xx
▽ What are FODMAPs?
The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols”. They are short carbohydrates found in lots of healthy foods, which the bacteria in your intestines will break down, producing gas in the process.
For unclear reasons, some people are particularly sensitive to this and experience painful and embarrassing symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, constipation and fatigue. FODMAP restriction has been found to improve symptoms in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID).
▽ What is a Low-FODMAP Diet?
The Low-FODMAP diet usually involves carefully cutting the down the amount of FODMAPs you consume over a day and at one time for 2-6 weeks until your symptoms resolve or at least become manageable. Then you “re-challenge” each type of FODMAP individually to see how sensitive you are to them. Thankfully most people can tolerate some or all of the FODMAPs at certain levels or combinations.
▽ Is it forever?
NO! From this feedback, you can reintroduce foods in a way that won’t set off your symptoms. Your tolerance will likely improve over time, so you can always retest foods when you feel up to it.
▽ Resources For Vegan Low-FODMAPers
These are some two things I’ve found to be invaluable since starting the low-FODMAP diet.
The first is the official app* from The Monash University. It’s the easiest and most up-to-date way to check what foods are A-okay and how big your portion size can be. Measurements come in grams, as well as “cups”, which is great as a brit!
