Documentaries

earthlingsWhen I first tried to go Vegan back in 2008 I didn’t end up being successful in grasping the full concept of veganism. At the time I was working A LOT and did not have the time to educate myself properly. With the few hours I had when I got home needing to be for sleep I didn’t have time to watch documentaries and read etc. Plus I honestly did not know where to start or what to look for.

This time I went vegan and went full force on finding things to watch and read/ participate in. I needed to open my eyes to the reality.  I can honestly say that this will be the lifestyle I live for the rest of my life, after educating yourself and watching videos and seeing whats going on first hand to these animals and what your doing to yourself and the environment you really cant see any other way of living.

I read an article one day about 4 documentaries that a guy watched on a long flight and the first he saw was “the best speech you will ever hear by Gary Yourofsky.” Instantly I was intrigued as I love good speeches, let me tell you that this is an Amazing speech! I watched that for starters and then I just couldn’t stop myself. I watched every documentary on Netflix that had to do with food or health, and the Tedtalks as well. Then I moved on to Youtube and then to documentaries that were to be purchased. I have found many that I feel are truly wonderful to watch and in order to make the learning process as easy as possible I will post them below

In no particular order

“The Best Speech You Will Ever Hear by Gary Yourofsky” – (not technically a documentary but good enough to be in this category as well) Extremely Wonderful speech really an eye opener to at least get you to see the other side of things  and maybe get your mind to make a shift to a Compassionate Lifestyle. It gets you to at least think about doing the research behind the info that he gives as it is shocking and true. He is very intriguing and you wont get bored watching this speech.

“A Delicate Balance: The Truth” – This is a true eye opener about the effects of meat and dairy on the body and in the environment. It does cover a bit of animal cruelty at the end but it is more about health and the environment. Really great watch about the balance of life and how we all connect.

“Glass Walls by Paul McCartney” – A 13 minute Video on abuse and reality in factory farming.

“Earthlings” – This is a really hard watch and I understand if it takes people a couple times to fully get through. as long as you see it all and make yourself aware of the horror that the animals in our world face. PLEASE OPEN YOUR EYES! These are beautiful innocent living beings who feel pain and suffering. and all they want is to be loved and experience life like we do. Its time we give them a fair chance!

“Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 days” – This is a wonderful watch for anyone battling diabetes type one or type two or anyone who is at risk of getting or worried about other sicknesses that come along with diabetes.

“Vegucated”– A documentary about 3 individuals with totally different background chosen to go Vegan. Through this documentary you see these people go from meat eaters to plain old angry about what they have had their eyes opened to. Very interesting.

“Diet for a New America” – Talks about how to eat healthy, being aware of what you are eating everyday and being your own doctor.

 

 

 

fokThese are all trailer links below as they are not available on youtube

 Average Joe on the Raw” –  Great little documentary about an average 30 year old man who decides to make the change for his health and go raw for 60 days. This is his full experience and its really great to see how many different things he goes through on this lifestyle in such a short time. I fully believe in the spiritual benefits you gain on this lifestyle and this documentary really captures that.

“Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” – This documentary is available on Netflix for free but here is the trailer for a preview. This is an interesting one to watch as well, even if I don’t personally recommend juice fasts it is still informative and opens your eyes to a lot of the health problems we face.

“Forks over Knives” – This is an absolutely MUST SEE also available on Netflix. Health wise if you haven’t watched any other health based documentary watch this one. very very informative.

“Food Inc” – Watch this! Reality of the food companies and the farmers regulations etc and how many lies are hidden from us. (available on Netflix)

“Hungry for Change” – Documentary about the secret and addictions we have with sugar, sodium and junk. How they want to sell us products and make money of our misinformation and greed. (available on Netflix)

“Food Matters” – How food matters and the tricks they are using to make money from us, how we are poisoning ourselves. they talk about GMOs and doctors prescriptions etc oppose to going out and curing yourself internally. They talk about the lifestyle we need to take! You are what you eat.(available on Netflix)

“Maximum Tolerated Dose”– Goes into detail about animal testing practices and what goes in behind the closed doors of these laboratories.

“Skin Trade”– This is an extremely important documentary of the fur industry and which animals are actually being used for your “fashion needs.” (more info on this in my animal welfare section)

“Ghost in our Machine”-following a photographer around the world for a year as she documents several animal stories in parts of Canada, the U.S. and in Europe. Each story and photograph is a window into the reality for global animal industries: Food; Fashion; Entertainment and Biomedical Research.

 

There these should get you started on your road to informing yourself about the lies we are told daily. Time to start opening our minds and making our decisions after we are well informed.  I remember reading a quote once “I have never met an intelligent man who when presented with the facts didn’t go vegan” its true when you get yourself to open your mind enough you gain a different aspect of intelligence one filled with compassion and that intelligence wont shift if you focus on the animals.
