Summer Walker Talks About Her Vegan Transition.

 

Written By : Shayla Cunningham

 

As we all know singer and songwriter Summer Walker is a spiritual person who prefers natural remedies rather than using medine. During her pregnancy she’s given us clips and pictures on how peaceful her journey is as a single mother. After Walker decided to open up on some of the negative things that’s happened in her first trimester such as her break-up with producer London On The Track. She stuck with remaining positive, and focusing on things that will protect and keep her baby healthy. Summer met up with Iam_lifewave also known as Hayah Mit’wal on instagram to focus on her health journey. Hayah explains that the vegan life is a healthy life, especially while being pregnant. Mit’wal highly recommends the Vegan lifestyle to provide your baby the proper nutrients.

A Herbal lifestyle is how you actually detox your body and maintain proper health. Mit’wal states “Stay away from baby food & formula. The formula has all kinds of toxins and metals in the food causing brain deterioration which can also cause the baby to cry more due to possible headaches from the metal that’s in baby food. Breastfeeding is always the best way to feed the baby. Breast Milk consists of a medicine called “Colostrum” that is really good for brain development and also raises a baby’s IQ.”

Summer explains “The vegan transition is hard but worth it, I try to stay consistent daily, so I am doing the best that I can which is the key, to try and don’t give up.” Once you become vegan you will not continue to stress & worry, it will relieve your anxiety and depression as well. A couple of natural remedies Mit’wal bought & recommended for Summer is Sea Moss & Elderberries. Sea Moss helps the body reduce inflammation, people take it to lower their risks of infections. Elderberries are also good because they are packed with antioxidants that can boost up your immune system. Elderberries can also help tame inflammation, lessons stress, and can protect the heart as well. Prior to Summer’s pregnancy, she has always remained spiritually connected by reading Chakra Handbooks, writing daily affirmations, taking notes, doing yoga and collecting spiritual crystals. Her fans love and support her because she is, if anything herself, an influencer people look up to, providing pure love and positivity. She is respected because her music and her personal life is one, the same Summer you get in the studio is the same Summer you get outside the studio.
