I was bulimic for 15 years. I had lost my talking voice almost completely. I definitely could not even attempt to sing. I have not been bulimic for a couple years now, so I am working on my vocal chord recovery. I sing to strengthen my vocal chords. I realize I am not a great singer. That is not the point. This is to document the progress.
A couple years ago, I wouldn’t even talk on the phone, because people always thought I had laryngitis. Now I’m attempting to belt out some songs. Bear with me here. For those of you who have lost your voice, due to bulimia. It does heal, but it’s a long process.
If you are wondering how I recovered from Bulimia, I switched to an all Organic diet. I eat USDA Organic only, no exceptions to that. Natural is not Organic. Be aware of the labeling. Organics are the way food used to be. It is super important for people with eating disorders to eat healthy food, so that you don’t relapse.
The reason someone starts an eating disorder, is because they want to be thin. You cannot put someone in rehab and give them unhealthy food and expect them to be okay with gaining weight. It is no mystery why rehab does not work. I tried counseling and rehab for years. It was not until I switched to Organics. That is what finally made the difference for me.
I also started consuming weed in the form of Pure CBDs and Pure THC. Weed helped me get over my food obsession. A lot of people get under the impression that weed gives you the munches. Weed gives you what you need. So if you are undernourishing yourself, then you will get the munches when you ingest weed. If you are eating healthy, then weed will do the opposite. You will eat less and focus on art instead of food.
The other things I had to do to change my diet is I do food and beverages that are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, GMO Free, Organic, Low Sugar, No Added Sugar, No Artificial sweeteners, No Caffeine and No Alcohol. This list seems really long and daunting to most. I took these things out one by one. You cannot go cold turkey and cut out everything at once. That would be miserable for you. The thing is, this list is the way food used to be. Before they started messing with our food. We are going back to the basics. The way our ancestors used to eat.
I have never felt better and more alive, since I made the switch to all the things I listed above. The two main switches are Organics and consume weed. If you are allowed in your state, I would highly recommend giving it a try. If you do not want to get stoned, then just do CBDs. Those are a lifesaver. They healed my thyroid after it shutdown from 15 years of bulimia.
If anyone is struggling with an eating disorder and needs to chat, feel free to message me. I truly understand what you are going through. I went through everything with my eating disorder. I got kicked out of my Dad’s house numerous times for being bulimic. I was living in my car, because I was spending so much money on food. It is a serious problem, that is becoming an epidemic in our society. It is a result of the poor food standards and the deregulation of the food industry.
