Hi, I’m Dr. Galit Goldfarb, and my passion in life is educating people to heal themselves by helping them make better eating and lifestyle choices while caring simultaneously for our planet.
Here's a little about myself and how I have come to find my passion:
My passion in life is to be happy, healthy, and fulfilled and to help others do the same. Success for me involves succeeding in all walks of life including being healthy, both mentally and physically, living in good relationships, being financially free, and having peace of mind.
Here is a little about me and how I have come to find my passion:
I have always been enthusiastic about writing, nutrition, and helping others, and this helped me throughout my university studies, which later became a 28-year career in the field of medicine. My career started while I was searching for help to conquer the bulimia I had been suffering from since the age of 16. I went to the local library to gain as much knowledge as I could at the time about nutrition. At age 21, I moved to London, where I earned a Bachelor's degree with honors in Biochemistry & Nutrition from the University of North London with research performed at The Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition in collaboration with The Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine in London. I then studied for a postgraduate degree in Immunology and Toxicology at the University of Hertfordshire.
At the time, I also experimented with alternative medicines and gained diplomas in healing, Chinese medicine, and alternative nutrition while giving health lectures at Hi-tech companies.
During my studies, my life took on a downward spiral with the birth of my eldest mentally challenged daughter when I was just 23 years old. One and a half years later, my second mentally disabled daughter was born, and my marriage was torn apart. After the divorce, I had no money to feed my children and was still in court issues with my ex, especially regarding their treatment. The lawyer who worked with me told me that if I would not get my act together financially, my children could be taken away from me. At this moment, I decided to become financially independent. I read and learned all I could about the subject and soon began business as a real estate entrepreneur.
While building my business as a real estate entrepreneur, I never actually left the field of health and nutrition. I simultaneously continued to study at the Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv, Israel, where I earned a Master's degree in Medical Science and in Physiology with a research project involving stem cells and physical activity at the Neufeld Heart Research Institute in Sheba. I later opened a private coaching practice in the field of Nutritional Medicine and also worked as an emergency medical technician (EMT) for the Israeli ambulance service - Magen David Adom.
That period involved much personal development for me as I delved deeply into changing irrelevant and non-beneficial beliefs and behaviors that I held. I studied deeply the power of the subconscious mind and how we can control our thoughts to increase self-esteem and succeed in life. The methods I found during this period changed my life completely. Through a strong desire to care for my daughters, my businesses succeeded, and I became well-off and financially independent. The methods I learned helped me to reach my true potential in other fields of life as well, including conquering bulimia, becoming happy irrelevant to external conditions, becoming fulfilled by working on my life purpose and being part of a great relationship. I share the knowledge I gained during this period of my life HERE
To help all who are interested in reaching their true full potential of becoming fulfilled, financially independent, happy, and fruitful, I have also written a five-book series titled: Rejoice Every Choice - Skills To Achieve Success, Happiness, and Fulfillment Series which includes:
Book # 1: The Basics Everyone Needs to Know
Book # 2: How to Create Peace of Mind
Book # 3: How to Create Optimum Health
Book # 4: How to Create Great Relationships
Book # 5: How to Create Wealth & Abundance
This book series was written to help the reader quickly master the necessary changes to reach these goals by learning and gaining the tools to succeed.
At that stage in my life, I thought that perhaps the importance of nutrition was all in my mind and presumed that if I ate as I wished but believed I would be healthy, then I would be healthy. But I was certainly in for a surprise. I changed my diet and followed the typical western world diet. I stopped eating only whole foods and began to conform to society. I started eating hamburgers for the first time in my life, as well as white bread, white rice, and white pasta. I ate whipped cream, cheesecakes, and all the rest, although not extensively. I thought that if everyone was eating these foods, I might be the crazy one not to be eating them.
After two and a half years on the average Western World diet, I was diagnosed with pre-uterine cancer and was operated on to remove the affected cells. But I still did not understand the connection between my diet and my health until a second surprise showed up after four years into the typical Western World diet in the form of thyroid cancer with diseased lymph nodes. I was operated on twice, and I finally understood that my diet was what had made me more susceptible to cancer.
It was then that I began devoting my time to researching the ideal diet for human consumption that supports health and longevity as well as a fit physique which I have happily gained in the process.
The outcome of this intense period of research came to my next book: The Guerrilla Diet & Lifestyle Program, which became a #1 International Bestseller and won the silver award for best health and fitness book in 2016 and the gold award in 2017 by Readers Favorite and also Bookvana, and received a five star Kirkus review.
By following the Guerrilla Diet myself, I have, without any added effort on my part, reached my perfect weight, gained plenty of energy to fulfill my life purpose, and became cancer and addiction free. This diet has indeed changed my personal life, but that's not the whole story. All of my clients have lost weight and healed or found remission from many disorders and diseases. Also, my eldest daughters have reduced the frequency of their epileptic seizures and feel much better.
At this time, I was invited to give a TEDx talk on my research into The Ideal Diet For Humans, which has now reached over 4 million people.
But even following the revelation of this diet (which does include some animal products) and watching The Guerrilla Diet's immense effects on human health, I personally decided to go completely vegan after watching Gary Yurofsky's lecture titled: "The best speech you'll ever hear." From that day, I never looked back.
The key to maintaining health while also becoming a vegan was to make the change in the right way and with the right tools and knowledge, which I gained from my research into The Ideal Diet For Humans. I made this change correctly to support my health, and now I not only help people heal from disease and lose weight through the guidelines of the Ideal Diet For Humans, but I also help people interested in veganism make the change in a healthy way following the principles which I discovered in my research.
I understood that since I am caring for my health, my children's health, and the planet's health, I also need to care for the animals with whom we share the world.
I have completed my doctoral research on “Sustainably Feeding 10 Billion Healthy People” and was invited to talk at the United Nations Global Entrepreneurship Initiative in June 2018 about food choices.
I currently live at my home in Caesarea, Israel; I exercise regularly outdoors in nature and indoors with my treadmill desk when I write my articles, and I maintain a healthy vegan lifestyle with the correct supplements. But most importantly, I am healthy, happy, spiritually awake most of the time, and fulfilled due to the choices that I make daily, moment by moment; and I wish the same for you.
