- Shift To Raw7 y
Shift to Raw
by author Michael Hermiston
My fear of doctors was the result of a plethora of childhood illnesses, hospital stays and operations. As I entered my 20s, this fear prevented me from taking any action when I developed a series of nagging pains in my back.
In hindsight this was foolish. These pains were kidney infections! They eventually passed and for the next 20 years, my life was mostly free from illness. Little did I know that my kidneys were deteriorating due to the scarring of the infections, high blood pressure and my ongoing excessive protein intake.
My childhood ... read more

- * Raw Scandal *7 y
This Thread is quite revealing for people in the raw community and for people who conduct business in general. Check out the R’ed post and go to the allegedly taped converstation of a customer with High Profile raw community web owner/author Alissa Cohen’s husband.
There was an edit made on the tape where the customer could have gotten him riled up but even so, that is no excuse to react in that manner. If that were the case, hang up and block her. Is she manipulating them? Possibly. This is one for the courts.
No matter what was going on, this may not be the best way to react w ... read more

- Raw Tongue7 y
An excerpt from Hooked on Raw by Rhio
”When switching to a more natural diet it may take time for the tongue to catch up to the new taste. This is because the tongue has been ”pickled” by all the heavy salt, refined sugar, corn syrup, white vinegar, MSG, nitrates, saccharin, Nutrasweet, and other chemicals you have been ingesting. It takes approximately two to three months away from all of these things to get your tongue back to normal. Once you get through the initial phase, then you will start to appreciate the true flavors of the fresh fruits, vegetables, sprouted nuts, seeds, legume ... read more

An excerpt from Hooked on Raw by Rhio
”In every system of health maintenance there is always some controversy. Remember however, that while the controversies my rage on and on, you, as an individual, can decide what works best for you. People become confused when they hear opposing viewpoints; once says black, the other says white, yet a third advocate says gray. My advice is to pass all information (including mine) through the filter of your own intelligence and reach your own conclusions. You do not have to wait for the final word to proceed.” visit the page

- Detoxifying Blood7 y
An excerpt from The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe
”Within a few hours of eating food, the quality of the blood is changed. Dr. Michael Klaper, in his video, A Diet For All Reasons, shows an example of thick, heavy blood drawn from a person on the standard cooked meat and pasteurized milk diet. Surgeons know that the blood is almost immediately thickened by eating heavy foods, making it dangerous to operate, that is one of the main reasons they will only operate after the patient has fasted on water for at least 8 hours. Eating raw plant food thins the blood, as does fasting ... read more

An excerpt from chapter 1 of 12 Steps to Raw Food by Victoria Boutenko
Life and Energy
”When people talk about raw food they usually talk about enzymes. Enzymes are energy. Enzymes are life. We cannot see enzymes with our naked eye, but we can see the life and energy that is the result of enzymes. For example, if I take two almonds, one raw and one roasted, and plant them in the soil, within 3 weeks the roasted almond will have disintegrated into the soil. The raw almond will remain where I planted it. In spring the snow melts on the mountain and flows down to water the soil, inhibit ... read more

Understanding and Handling Cravings
”... We have tolerances in our body that have been developed over years from foods that we eat that are highly toxic. Its just like drugs. If you take a drug into your body the drug is poison, but at the same time your body rises up to fight this poison so you develop a tolerance. Then if you remove the poison you still have the tolerance Your body is still pushing against that poison even though the poison isn’t there anymore and you feel that. And that tolerance is what you feel when you feel a craving. You want to bring that poison back into your b ... read more

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cake (its really raw carob, not raw chocolate, shhhh)
Grind up 1 cup of raw organic almonds (don’t soak them) in the blender on high for about one minute until they are a fine powder. (Best is the Vitamix blender, using the pummel to push the nuts down as you blend)
Keep grinding until they start to get a little doughy due to the oils being released
Add 2 tablespoons of raw carob powder
Add 1 and a half tablespoons of raw unfiltered honey
Continue to blend (and push with pummel if available) for one minute.
Use a spatula to remove from blender and roll ... read more

Returning to Our Roots: Research Supports a Plant-Based Diet
- from Veggies in Motion News: www.detroitmeatout.org
Obesity, heart disease, stroke, and most cancers are all on the rise in the United States and are
clearly related to diet. With our continued failing health, as a society, maybe it’s time to look at our behavior for
some important answers.
Think back to the last time you saw another human run down a squirrel or rabbit; jump on its back and
sink her teeth into its neck and crush its larynx. Maybe you just missed those super-human feats of athleticism and

Heck, just trying to eat like any true carnivore - or even an omnivore - would probably have us in a hospital before the day was out."
- Raw food healing/Percentage7 y
If you are healing from a sugar-related condition such as diabetes or candida and you are not 100% raw then even fruit sugars should be avoided and green juices be substituted instead. But amazingly enough a woman with type 1 diabetes went on the OJ Diet recently and emailed me that she was able to cut her insulin out completely by the end of the two weeks. She went back on a 100% raw food diet and found that because of the foods she had to increase the insulin just slightly (still she’s down to 4 units instead of 30 previous to the OJ Diet). She was also re-diagnosed with type 2 diabetes ... read more
- Here is a 2 part newsletter that Jinjee shared concerning fruit/raw food and diabetes as well as candida overgrowth. She echoes what I am hearing by so many people that have experimented with varying degrees of raw food percentage intake. It seems to take a commitment of 100% raw foods to bring about effective healing. Even 1% cooked is enough to hault the healing effects of raw food in some conditions and people.
- 100% RAW and Candida7 y
by Jinjee Talifero.
In answer to all the emails about how I cured my candida here is my candida story. I’ve been on and off the 100% raw vegan diet for 13 years now. Before I went raw I ate a SAD (Standard American Diet) and I had really bad candida (a sugar related condition). When I went 100% raw it became worse at first but then went away entirely. Then I went about 75% cooked vegan and 25% raw vegan and my candida symptoms returned. When I went 100% raw again, the symptoms again got worse at first but after a few weeks went away completely again staying away fo ... read more

- Fruit/Candida7 y
I have candida or a yeast infection. How can I eat so much fruit?
Excess fat is the culprit in candida, not sugar, per se. When fat levels in the blood rise, so does blood sugar, because excess fat inhibits insulin from performing its function of escorting sugar out of the bloodstream. The excess fat lines the blood vessel walls, the cells, insulin receptor sites, the sugar molecules themselves, and the insulin with a thin coating of fat, thus blocking and inhibiting normal metabolic activity.
Too much sugar in the blood is as life threatening as too little and can result in ser ... read more

Essential Fats and the Organic Athlete, Part 1
Contributed by Dr. Rick Dina

Whereas fats have traditionally been considered primarily as a source of calories and for their insulating properties, more recent research has uncovered a myriad of important functions in which fatty acids play a critical role. These includes such functions as hormone regulation, cell division, creating smooth and soft skin, creating stable heart rhythms, reducing platelet stickiness, regulating inflammatory processes, and becoming major parts of our cell membranes, which surround and ... read more

Omega 3 and Omega 6

The assumption that fat is bad has permeated our society for twenty years. Fat phobia may be even more prevalent among vegetarians and vegans. Overwhelming information exists to show this is a serious flaw in our thinking.
Don’t rush to fill your ice-cream bowl, wolf down some tempura, or consume a breakfast of eggs and pancakes, however, because the types of fat eaten still remain at the root of our health problems.
However, in our rush to throw ... read more

Life Changing Results
My philosophy is this, “If we look to the earth, the natural flow of our bodies, trust our bodies and learn their language then we will never be lead astray in our own health.”
I believe humans have the knowledge within them to be stewards over their lives and health. We have forgotten that knowledge. If we put forth a little effort we can remember it or relearn it. We have given our power over to many other people, governments and institutions. We have lost faith in our own ability, our bodies and lives ability to heal.
