Hair, a testimonial
My name is Stephanie and I began my vegetarian journey when I was
18 years old. Looking back, I guess I was not a very healthy vegetarian. I cut
out meat but ate tons of carbohydrates and sugars. I also ate tons of fruits and
vegetables but could not supplement enough protein to sustain this lifestyle. Not being aware of any of these issues, I had 2 children in my early 30's, which is
enough to make any strong immune system show its true colors.
By 35, I could tell my hair was breaking off on top of my head. Not
knowing what was causing this, I maintained a vegetarian diet and continued to
deplete my protein levels. When I turned 40, many changes happened. Among
the most important to mention is that that was when I met Dr. Dena Mendes.
Dr. Dena began by teaching me that what you eat affects every aspect of
your life and your future. By cleaning up my diet, my whole life changed. She
got me off of anything that turned to sugar in my body and got me off of unrefined
sugars. She also put me on a digestive enzyme to help my body absorb as
many nutrients as possible, instead of allowing everything to just run out of my
The second thing was to begin eating organic, grass fed, real protein, a
real biggie for me! It took me several years to begin eating a healthy amount of
protein. Last, but certainly not least, Dena began giving me vitamins, mainly
one that started allowing me to grow my hair again. They say it takes 7 years
to grow healthy hair back and I am here to say that that is about right. Now, at
48, my hair is noticeably longer, thicker, healthier and not breaking off. You
have to be patient, but Dena's diet and vitamin recommendations are single-
handedly healing the world! I am so lucky to have found her!
