My Recommended Movies
This is a short list of movies that I have watched, which helped me learn and heal myself after I left the hospital when I had my stroke, and in fact, watching those movies helped me heal and understand how wrong I was all these years, but I did not know better.
When I was in the hospital, the neurologist came to see me. I asked him one question: why did this happen to me. To my surprise he responded - I don't know. He later came and gave me his information so that I should go to his clinic after my release from the hospital for the follow-up. I decided - NO WAY! If he, a neurologist, cannot give me an answer to why I had a stroke, I embarked in a mission to find the answer by myself. Through my research I watched movies, read books about the ketogenic diet, listened to audiobooks and heard lectures from doctors on YouTube who are willing to share from their knowledge with people like me. Below is the list of movies that I have watched and have guided me to find the answer - and I must say - I definitely found the answer to my question - Why? Because my body wasn't a fat burning machine... (A few movies can be watched in this website for free and others can be bought or rented.)
