Gayla was at the top of a career she loved. She was working as a teacher and principal when her health began to quickly decline. She suffered with shingles week after week for years. She was hyper-allergic to many things, and had to carry an EpiPen with her everywhere she went. Finally, she quit her job because she was scared she might die in front of her students.
Her body was slowly shutting down, and even the best doctors couldn’t help her. One afternoon, she saw Forks Over Knives, a plant-based lifestyle documentary. Out of desperation, this Texas girl gave up cheese and all other animal products for 30 days. The results were truly life-saving. Now, Gayla is here to share the obstacles she’s overcome and the tricks she used to thrive on her whole food, plant-based lifestyle.
