Facing Failing Health as a Vegan

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“As a committed ethical vegan, I never imagined that I would doubt the safety of my diet . . . until I got sick.” Sayward’s experience of facing failing health as a vegan, of the subsequent guilt and shame and anger she felt while being a sick vegan, and of eventually regaining her health—while staying vegan!—has given her a unique perspective. None of us plan to get sick, and luckily, most of us never will. But some vegans do, and as fellow vegans, it's important that we are able to offer a supportive, non-blaming or -shaming community. So let's talk about that!
