Healing Teas Teas Are One of The Most Effective Ways to Benefit from Nature's Healing Herbs
Teas can help fight depression and anxiety, heal skin conditions and gastrointestinal disorders, regulate hormone imbalances, improve your sex life, prevent illness, and help you heal faster. Many diseases and conditions for which we turn to modern medicine can also be treated naturally with healing herbs. These treatments can be safer, less expensive and possibly even more effective than traditional methods.

Green Pharma Dr. Myklebust, MD: "Teas are rich in antioxidants called polyphenols which are plant chemicals that may help prevent cancer, heart disease, and other diseases"

Many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency

Dr. Jimmy Gutman, M.D - "Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases. Glutathione levels diminish as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency."

Magnesium Therapy

Magnesium Therapy: Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, and bones strong - "Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ system of the body. With regard to skeletal muscle, one may experience twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including back aches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction." .

Why Raw Food Diet?

Because from thirty to eighty-five percent of the nutrition in foods is destroyed in cooking. That is an average fifty percent loss! Fresh, raw foods contain the highest level of enzymes. Enzymes are the catalyst for the hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body. Cooked foods and dry convenient diets have been denatured and are devoid of enzymes- life-promoting elements. While they may maintain life they do not promote optimum health or longevity!

Malnutrition is the basis of all disease: "Man's body is a living organism, made of living cells, which require living food in order to be properly nourished and function well. When we put cooked food into our body, loaded with contaminants, the body starts to break down. It begins in the very young with colic, rashes, colds, earaches, upset stomachs, swollen glands and tonsils. As the child grows older, their may be tooth decay, pimples, the need for eye glasses, etc. Then as we enter adult life there is arthritis, hypoglycemia, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and cancers. All this and a multitude of other diseases are unnecessary and are nothing but the result of improper diet and lifestyle! Today, most people accept cooked food as the normal means of supplying the body with nutrients, not realizing that the living cells of our bodies do not take nourishment from the dead and artificial ingredients found in cooked food. And so, after a typical meal of cooked meat, cooked potatoes, a cooked vegetable and a piece of cooked bread, followed by a cooked sugar desert, their stomach is full and they think they have satisfied the nutritional needs of their body. In reality, they have given their body practically no nourishment. And thus with a full stomach, they are slowly starving their body's cells."
Raw Food by Rev. George H. Malkmus

There are two kinds of starvation: One starvation comes about because of no food at all. The second and most insidious starvation is progressive malnutrition over a period of time. The people in the third world don't have enough volume of food. In the first world there is plenty of "food" but it's empty food. The food we eat produces plenty of calories and energy but is almost completely devoid of nutrition which is vital to our survival. A good diet promotes good health and prevents the onset of disease. Most human illnesses and diseases are due to a deficiency of vital nutrients. When you supply your body with the proper nutrients, in a form that your body can use, it knows how to repair itself.

The case for B12 - In my journey into health, "How I Achieved Optimum Health After a Lifetime of Suffering" I explain how live raw foods played a huge role in my health recovery. I've been a live raw fooder for 3 decades, but I'm not a vegetarian. I eat meats that have been salt cured (still raw) such as Prosciutto, ham or gravlax salmon. I eat soft boiled eggs to keep the yolk uncooked, and occasionally I drink cultured raw goat milk known as Kefir. Although many vegan foods are said to have active B-12, few are proving to actually raise B-12 or prevent its loss. There are a variety of symptoms of B-12 deficiency, which is a danger for vegans and live fooders. The initial symptoms can include low energy, but it can eventually cause permanent nerve damage, depression, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, nervousness, paranoia, hyperactive reflexes, impaired memory and behavioral changes. What About Meat? The Myths of Vegetarianism

"The body has the inherent ability -the vitality -not only to heal itself and restore health, but also to ward off disease. Illness is not caused simply by an invasion of external agents or germs, but is a manifestation of the organism's attempt to defend and heal itself. Prevention Is the Best Cure. Health is a reflection of how we choose to live." TC Fry

"True good health is more than just the absence of disease; it is a state where you enjoy all the energy, vitality and benefits life has to offer. One of the keys to achieving good health is to use the power of healthy foods to positively affect how you feel, how much energy you have, and the length and quality of your life. There is clear and definitive scientific evidence that proper nutrition plays an important and significant role in reducing the risk of degenerative diseases, and in providing long-term health and longevity." George Mateljan

The relationship between unhealthy eating and the development of disease is undeniable. When most people get a cancer diagnosis their doctors are quick to prescribe drugs and harsh treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. All of these treatments have a harrowing effect on the body opening it up to a whole host of other problems.

Holistic health practitioners, on the other hand, will often recommend detoxification methods such as cleansing to eliminate cancer from the body. Here Allison Biggar interviews European journalist and ovarian cancer survivor Evita Ramparte about how she cured her cancer naturally without chemotherapy, surgery or radiation.

Raw Food Vs The Cooked, American Diet - The Great American Rat Experiment Excerped from the book Goldat, by Lewis E. Cook, Jr. & Junkp Yasui

“It has been found that a group of rats were fed diet of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and whole grains from birth grew into completely healthy specimens and never suffered from any disease. They were never ill. They grew rapidly, but never became fat, mated with enthusiasm and had healthy offspring. They were always gently affectionate and playful and lived in perfect harmony with each other. Upon reaching an old age, equivalent to 80 years in humans, these rats were put to death and autopsied. At that advanced age their organs, glands, tissues all body processes appeared to be in perfect condition without any sign of aging or deterioration.

“A companion group of rats we fed a diet comparable to that of the average American and included white bread, cooked foods, meats, milk, salt, soft drinks, candies, cakes, vitamins and other supplements, medicines for their ails, etc. During their lifetime these rats became fat and, from the earliest age, contracted most of the diseases of modern American society including colds, fever, pneumonia, poor vision, cataracts, heart disease, arthritis, cancer and many more.

“Most of this group died prematurely at early ages but during their lifetime most of them were vicious, snarling beasts, fighting with one another stealing one another’s food and attempting to kill each other. They had to be kept apart to prevent total destruction of the entire group. Their offspring were all sick and exhibited the same general characteristics as there parents.

“As this group of rats died one by one or in epidemics or various diseases, autopsies were performed revealing extensive degenerative conditions in every part of their bodies. All organs, glands and tissues were affected, as were the skin, hair, blood and nervous system. They were all truly total physical and nervous wrecks. The same condition existed in the few, which survived full duration of the experiment.

“A third companion group of rats was fed the same diet as the second group to an age equivalent to about 40 years in humans. They displayed the same general symptoms of the second group – being sick and vicious so that they had to be separated to prevent them from killing each other and stealing one another food.

“At the end of this initial period all rats in this group were placed on a strict fast, with o water to drink for a period of several days. Then they received the natural (raw) diet o first group of rats. This diet was alternated with periods of fast and within one mouth behavioral pattern had changed completely so that the now docile, affectionate, playful creatures were once again able to live together in a harmonious society and from this point on never suffered any illness.

“Several rates put to death and autopsied at the end of the initial period revealing the same general deterioration as that exhibited in the second group of rats. However, the remaining rats lived out the full duration of the experiment, to the equivalent of 80 years in humans, and when they were topside there were no signs of aging or deterioration or disease - just as those in the first group. The obvious disease, degeneration and deterioration of body parts evident in their first half of life had been completely reversed and excellent health restored.

“The same principles apply to human life as there is only one TRUTH! Thus it may be concluded that sick people may be restored to health simply by choosing the proper diet, fasting observing the other rules of health. There is no mystery. There is no external force that will help – all healing being accomplished within the body in accordance with the laws of organic life and health.”

Natural Animal Health linksHumans are not the only creatures on earth who can benefit from raw/living food A growing number of veterinarians state that processed pet food is the main cause of illness and premature death in the modern dog and cat. In December 1995, the British Journal of Small Animal Practice published a paper contending that processed pet food supresses the immune system and leads to liver, kidney, heart and other diseases. This research, initially conducted by Dr Tom Lonsdale, was researched further by the Australian Veterinary Association and proven to be correct."

Baby Greens: A Live-Food Approach for Children of All Ages

"We began transitioning our children to a raw food diet over a year ago as an experiment to alleviate the symptoms of ADD my eight year old son was experiencing. I'm happy to say that the experiment was astonishingly successful! We have been delighted at the changes in my son's behavior and capabilities, which occurred almost immediately. His moodiness, irritability and inability to concentrate were gone. His mental processes cleared, his memory improved and so did his performance in school. There are many things that come up as you change your child's diet; the special nutritional needs of children, social gatherings, disapproving relatives, school functions and sack lunches, your own selfdoubts, children who don't want to try new foods, and the attitude of other family members, just to name a few. When my son's story was published in Living Nutrition Magazine with the title Triumph over Attention Deficient Disorder Kyle Stoycoff's Story, I began getting inquiries from other parents eager to change their children's diets and needing advice and guidance. Raw Kids is my attempt to fill this need. I hope our experience can help pave the way for those wishing to improve their children's diets and quality of life."

Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
Generational Consequences of Nutritional Deficiency

Dr. Price traveled to the far corners of the world to find the most primitive cultures on each continent, and compared their traditional diets to the standard Western diet. Photo after photo in his book points up the glaring difference between the health and APPEARANCE of the natives of whatever culture nourished on their traditional diet and those whose diets had been disrupted and "displaced" by the "white diet"...a diet high in refined foods like white sugar, bleached white flour, polished rice, and synthetic fats. He also carefully laid out the guidelines for a natural unrefined diet that would be suitable for modern Americans. Too bad all that careful research and excellent advice has been ignored. Today's SAD (standard American diet) is a god-awful, unbalanced grain-heavy (65% "complex carbohydrates") piece of tomfoolery that bears no resemblance to the diet that nourished and nurtured our ancestors. learn more

Benjamin P. Sandler, M.D. The Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research

The important role of enzymes to achieve/maintain optimum health

Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD - "The marine phytoplankton are Nature's gift to assist us on our journey to optimal health and wellness through balanced nutrition.. While transient sub-optimal nutrition may be forgiven, a constant diet lacking in micronutrients will adversely affect every function, structure, and detoxification functions of the human cell. Good nutrition will enhance the structure and function of all organs in our bodies. Our brains, muscles, hearts, arteries, joints, bones, skin, hair, hormones, immune system, vision, digestion, kidneys, liver will carry out their jobs much better. Metabolically, our lipids, and sugars can be optimized, thus providing more overall energy, minimize weight problems, and improve sleep. These nutrients improve mental function, and memory. They reduce depression, harmful effects of stress, and mood swings." Dr. Tennant says that marine phytoplankton contains almost everything one needs to sustain life and to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally. Marine phytoplankton has been called "the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet", containing a wide range of trace elements, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes and cellular materials, in a raw juice form which is absorbed on a cellular level to promote and maintain optimum health. Its antioxidants and unique polysaccharides can halt the genetic mutations that can lead to cancer. Both high levels of saccharides and adaptogens increase energy and stamina by improving our ability to consume and use oxygen. Adaptogens also improve cardiovascular health by strengthening the heart and circulation. Learn more about the healing power of marine phytoplankton

How Cooked is Too Cooked
Nancy Appleton, Ph.D.

There is enough evidence to show that the more food is cooked, the more difficult it is to digest and metabolize. The higher the temperature that food is cooked, the longer it stays in the gut. This makes it more difficult for the food to absorb and work on a cellular level where it needs to work. When the food cannot work at the cellular level, the cells can become deficient and/or toxic. This leads to deficiency and toxicity of the whole body making the body less able to function optimally. All food deteriorates during commercial food processing and during storage. Three different things happen to food that is overcooked or over-processed:

1. Destruction of essential amino acids.
2. Decrease in digestibility.
3. Production of anti-nutritional and toxic compounds.

It is the liver's job to detoxify toxins, but the liver can become overloaded and unable to do its job. In the bloodstream, the undigested or partially digested food (in the form of macromolecules) is in too large a particle to get into the cell to function. Undigested or partially digested food moves through the bloodstream causing havoc in the body.

When food is heated past the heat-labile point, its chemical configuration changes. Pasteurization, deep-frying, and barbecuing are all forms of cooking where food is heated past the heat labile point. The body does not understand these new chemical configurations and does not have the enzymes to digest the food easily. more

Food is the single most important factor in achieving and maintaing good health. When it comes to good nutrition the key, as in all natural living, is simplicity. "Living foods, such as fruits and vegetables, eaten in their natural state, raw, or only slightly cooked, is best to get all the nutrients they have to offer. By cooking our foods, vegetables and fruits, we lose 85% of the nutrients they provide. All enzymes are killed and amino acids are either destroyed or changed into indegestible components.

RAW MILK RAID

Police raided the Rawsome Foods organic grocery store with guns drawn in search of "raw-foods". George Hemminger (George4Title) said the battle over organic foods is heating up because large agricultural businesses and corporations feel threatened by local co-ops and have hijacked the FDA and other government regulatory agencies. "This is about control and profit, not our health," said Aajonus Vonderplanitz, co-founder of Rawesome Foods. "How can we not have the freedom to choose what we eat?"

LA Times Story 'How can we not have the freedom to choose what we eat?'

The Raw Milk Group: helping people discover the benefits, locate sources and promote the use of raw milk.
Many diseases that exist today were rarely even heard of before the 1920's when most Americans used raw milk and when raw milk was readily available nationwide. If all mankind used raw milk, from the days of Adam and Eve up to the early 1900's, yet they lived long lives while enduring the harshest of weather and living conditions, it would seem to imply that raw milk is highly beneficial to our bodies.The raw goat milk group is an Internet forum that was created to bring raw goat milk suppliers, raw milk seekers, dairy farmers, raw food enthusiasts and those who want to learn more about the health benefits of raw goat milk all together in one convenient place.

“The raw milk underground is one of the most contentious battlefields in the revolution to reclaim our food from industrialization, over-processing, and corporate control. In The Raw Milk Revolution, David Gumpert investigates in great detail the health claims of both raw milk advocates and public health officials, as well the legal tactics being employed by government agencies to stop the growing movement to obtain and supply raw milk. His comprehensive analysis effectively deconstructs and illuminates the many complex issues of health, safety, and freedom that are raised by this debate.”--Sandor Ellix Katz, author of Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods and The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved: Inside America's Underground Food Movements

Does pasteurized milk really do the body good?

During the 1930's, Dr. Francis M. Pottenger conducted a 10-year study on the relative effects of pasteurized and raw milk diets on 900 cats. One group received nothing but raw whole milk, while the other was fed nothing but pasteurized whole milk from the same source. The raw milk group thrived, remaining healthy, active and alert throughout their lives, but the group fed on pasteurized milk soon became listless, confused and highly vulnerable to a host of chronic degenerative ailments normally associated with humans, including heart disease, kidney failure, thyroid dysfunction, respiratory ailments, loss of teeth, brittle bones, liver inflammation, etc. But what caught Dr. Pottenger's attention most was what happened to the second and third generations...

Enzymes in Raw Food - The Spark of Life!

Dr. Cichoke shows how every life process depends on enzymes. He covers a broad range of subjects starting with digestion, elimination, co-enzymes, how to obtain more enzymes in your diet and through supplementation. He has a 5-step program of do's and don'ts, including avoidance of aluminum cookware, refined sugars and salt, coffee, and so on. He also tells you how and what to eat and how to prepare foods for the best utilization of enzymes. Dr. Cichoke addresses a large range of health problems from extending life to AIDS and cancer. He also covers medications that affect enzymes, including OTC drugs and prescription drugs, as well as foods that contain enzyme inhibitors. Enzymes--living substances that regulate health--work with certain minerals in our bodies to form an antioxidant system that fights corrosive free radicals. Dr. Cichoke explains how to make the most of this amazing natural partnership to speed recovery from injury and lessen the effects of back pain, multiple sclerosis, viruses, and fatigue

Enzymes are proteins that facilitate chemical reactions in living organisms. They are required for every single chemical action that takes place in your body. All of your tissues, muscles, bones, organs and cells are run by enzymes. Your digestive system, immune system, bloodstream, liver, kidneys, spleen and pancreas, as well as your ability to see, think, feel and breathe, all depend on enzymes. Systemic enzymes, sometimes called metabolic or proteolytic enzymes, are produced by the pancreas to repair the body ... to build and restore tissues. In fact, they are a necessary component of all other functions in the body besides digestion, and your body is unable to produce enough of them because we eat cooked foods.

Enzymes are delicate dynamos. Delicate because they are destroyed by temperatures over 118 degrees (some by as little as 105 degrees), which means that they may not survive even light steaming. Dynamos because they are powerful biochemical catalysts; they speed burning or building reactions in the body according to need. They are specialized proteins, often with long complicated names ending in -ase.

Professor Jackson of the Department of Anatomy at the University of Minnesota, has shown that rats fed for 135 days on an 80% cooked food diet resulted in an increased pancreatic weight of 20 to 30%. What this means is that the pancreas is forced to work harder with a cooked food diet. "Although the body can manufacture enzymes, the more you use your enzyme potential, the faster it is going to run out..." wrote Dr. Edward Howell, who pioneered research in the benefits of food enzymes. A youth of 18 may produce amylase levels 30times greater than those of an 85 year old person.

systemic enzymesThe best enzymes that I have ever taken are the Peak Enzymes from the Whole Wellness Club. (The "WITHIN" are to be take *with foods* and the "WITHOUT" are to be taken *without food", on an empty stomach. After 4 weeks of taking the the WITHOUT Peak Enzymes also known as SYSTEMIC ENZYMES, my energy level increased dramatically and the dry, leathery skin and deep cracks at the bottom of my feet completely healed into a solft, pink, healthy skin.

Edward Howell, M.D. - "Enzymes are the catalyst for the hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body; they are essential for the digestion and absoption of foods as well as for the production of cellular energy. Enzymes are essential for most of the building and rebuilding that goes on constantly in our bodies. Among the many thousands of species of creatures living on this earth, only humans and some of their domesticated animals try to live without enzymes. And only these transgressors of nature’s law are penalized with defective health. It is not surprising that dogs (and cats) have many human diseases since they are given only canned or packaged, heat treated, enzyme free food"

enzymes for health and wellnessCooked food passes through the digestive tract more slowly than raw food, tends to ferment, and throws poisons back into the body. Colon cancer is second only to lung cancer as a killer in America and is related, in various ways, to eating enzyme-deficient cooked food. Prolonged intestinal toxemia may manifest the following symptoms: Fatigue, nervousness, gasto-intestinal discomfort, recurrent infections, skin eruptions, hormonal disturbances, headaches, arthritis, sciatica, low back pain, allergies, asthma, eye, ear, nose and throat disorders, cardiac irregularities, pathological changes in the breasts, and so forth. All of these conditions have been shown to respond to therapy directed to correcting the bowel toxemia. Of course, it is important to have fiber in the diet to scrub the colon walls clean, but even more important are the enzymes which will allow proper digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients. Cooked food often passes into the bloodstream as unsplit molecules that are deposited, as waste, in various parts of the body. If it is a fat molecule we know it as cholesterol plaque; if calcium, arthritis; if sugar, diabetes. White blood cell count rises dramatically after ingesting a meal of canned or cooked foods ("digestive leukocytosis"). Elevated WBCs are correlated to bacterial infection, inflammation and depressed immunity. Raw foods do not produce this reaction. All raw foods contain exactly the right enzymes required to split every last molecule into the basic building blocks of metabolism: Amino acids (from protein), glucose (from complex carbohydrates) and essential fatty acids (from unsaturated vegetable fats).

Each of us receives a supply of enzymes at birth. The supply is NOT limitless; it must supply the organism with life sustaining enzymes for the duration of its existence. When the enzyme supply is exhausted, it signals the breakdown of the organism (the dog). enzymes are needed to run all body systems. Metabolic enzymes are used by the heart, lungs, kidneys, immune system, and for brain functions; digestive enzymes convert protein, carbohydrates and fat into fuel to maintain the organism. Over taxing the body to supply digestive enzymes can reduce the supply of metabolic enzymes. Eventually, the body becomes enzyme-deficient making it vulnerable to disease. Not suprisingly, glands and major organs suffer most from enzyme deficiency. How can one prevent the body from depelting its own supply of enzymes? Nature solved the problem for us by providing those enzymes in RAW FOODS. Food enzymes begin the process of digestion in the stomach. If there are no food enzymes, the body must produce additional digestive enzymes resulting in fewer metabolic enzymes.

"Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness." Hippocrates, Greek physician (460 BC - 377 BC)

"Dr. Alexander Leaf published the findings of his research about the oldest people in the world in the January, 1973 edition of National Geographic Magazine. He found that the three most consistently disease-free and long-lived people on Earth are the Abkhazians of Russia, the Vilacabambans of Ecuador and the Hunzukuts of Pakistan. None of these peoples suffer from Western diseases: NO obesity, NO cancer, NO heart disease! On the average these people live to be over 100 years old. The men are physically active and still fathering children at 100 years of age. The diet of all of these people consists of 70-80 percent high-water-content foods such as raw, uncooked fruits and vegetables.

Disease proliferate only where there is not enough oxygen for cells to be healthy. Raw foods contain an abundance of oxygen. In cooked foods, oxygen is destroyed.

Joel Fuhrman MD -"Following a strict vegetarian diet is not as important as eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. A vegetarian whose diet is mainly refined grains, cold breakfast cereals, processed health-food-store products, vegetarian fast foods, white rice, and pasta will be worse off than a person who eats a little chicken or eggs, for example, but consumes a larger amount of fruits, vegetables, and beans."

"We have found that many digestive systems are not functioning well and the sicker the person, the more difficult it is to digest and assimilate the nutrients in raw vegetables, because they contain the pulp or fiber.

I changed from a meat-centered, cooked and processed food diet with plenty of sugar desserts, to an all-raw diet with lots of carrot juice. I stayed on this total raw diet for approximately one year. I didn't eat any cooked food during that year ... just raw fruits, raw vegetables and one to two quarts a day of freshly extracted, raw carrot juice.

The results were spectacular! Almost immediately I started to get well! In less than one year, my tumor had totally disappeared. It simply got smaller and smaller until it was gone. But that was not all. In less than one year, every physical problem I had been experiencing also disappeared! Such physical problems as hemorrhoids, hypoglycemia, severe allergies and sinus problems, high blood pressure, fatigue, pimples, colds, flu ... even body odor and dandruff were gone! Totally healed! In the years that have followed - and I am over 60 years old at this writing - I have not experienced as much as a cold, sore throat, upset stomach, been to a doctor or taken as much as an aspirin. It is so thrilling, at my age, to still be able to play football, basketball and softball with the boys, jog five miles with ease, and have more energy, endurance and stamina than I had when I was 20 years old."
Rev. George Malkmus

"It has now been more than 20 years since the doctor told me I had colon cancer. When I first heard the word "cancer," it struck terror in me. I was scared because I knew what I was facing. As a pastor, I had sat at the bedside of many cancer victims and conducted their funerals throughout my ministry. And I had recently watched my own Mother die a slow, torturous death after her colon cancer was treated with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Refusing to subject my body to those same medical treatments that I felt had helped kill my Mom, I sought an alternative. Fortunately, I had a preacher friend in Texas by the name of Lestor Roloff who encouraged me to simply change my diet and lifestyle and drink lots of freshly extracted carrot juice! It sounded too simple, but, I took his advise... drastically and overnight changed my diet and lifestyle and almost immediately started to get well! Within one year, not only was my cancer gone, but so were all my other physical problems. These included high blood pressure, severe sinus and allergy problems, hemorrhoids, hypoglycemia, fatigue, pimples... even body odor and dandruff! "

Green juice is my lifeline

Most people who have explored the wondrously wide avenues of self-healing have heard about wheatgrass. Wheatgrass juice has been proven over many years to benefit people in numerous ways:cleansing the lymph system, building the blood, restoring balance in the body, removing toxic metals from the cells, nourishing the liver and kidneys and restoring vitality. One ounce of wheatgrass juice has the vitamin and mineral equivalent of 2.2 pounds of fresh vegetables. It contains most of the vitamins and minerals needed for human maintenance, including the elusive B12. Many of the benefits of wheatgrass juice stem from the fact that it is a living food, which is a complete protein with about 30 enzymes and is approximately 70% crude chlorophyll.

To detoxify my blood and to maintain my excellent health and vitality I drink daily 6 to 8 ounces of freshly pressed mixture of wheatgrass, parsley, cilantro, bitter-melon-vine/leaf,, and other green leafy veggies. I mix in one tablespoon of bee pollen. one ounce of fulvic minerals , one ounce of marine phytoplankton, 2 ounces of Goji juice (rich in glyconutrients) and 1/4 teaspoon of shilajit.
I also drink theVelociTea Detox Tea. I grow my own wheatgrass in flats by my windows (view instructions). Wheatgrass played a major role in my health recovery of severe lifelong illnesses.
I use the Handcrank juicer (rust proof stainless steel) specifically designed to get the maximum juice from leafy plants or grass. (most other juicers shred the grass or leaf causing a huge mess and no juice.)
Shirley detailed step by step what I do everyday to detoxify my blood and to maintain optimum health and vitality


NOTE: I recently noticed that ordinary Supermarkets, Trader Joes, and 7-Eleven stores are now selling Superfood Green Juices which contains wheatgrass and barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, blue-green algae, vegetables and fruits. Although these commercial juices such as Naked's Green Marchine or Trader Joe's green juices are flash pasteurized at 160 degrees fahrenheit (which destroys much of the enzymes and other important nutrients) and are not made from organically grown veggies, they can be a second best choice for busy people who do not have the time to drink home-made fresh green juice.

Healing Colon Cancer with RAW Food
A personal account Excerpt from God's Way to Ultimate Health By Rev. George H. Malkmus

"The year was 1976. I was 42 years old and I was told I had colon cancer. A tumor about the size of a baseball had been found underneath my left rib cage where the transverse and descending colon come together. I was devastated! I asked, "Why me Lord?" I didn't understand!

* "What was I to do?...as a pastor for 20 years, I had sat at the bed- side of so many people and watched the devastating effects of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery experienced by others in the treatment of their cancers, I had also conducted the funerals for many of them."
"...he advised me not to go the medical route of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, as mom had gone... BUT TO SIMPLY CHANGE MY DIET TO RAW FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, AND DRINK LOTS OF FRESH CARROT JUICE!"

Overcoming lifelong chronic illnesses and dramatic weight loss with natural/raw/living food diet
By the author of this web site---Shirley

"...The Naturopahtic doctor gave me a homeopathic remedy and made me switch my diet from the SAD (Standard American Diet) to eating mostly RAW organically grown fruits, nuts and vegetables; I eliminated meat and dairy products and cut down drastically the starchy stuff like grains, pasta, and breads.

In 6 weeks, the lumps were completely gone. In 12 weeks I had lost 60 pounds effortlessly and my energy level and stamina improved dramatically. My overall resistance to infections became excellent and I'm proud to say that in the past 14 years I have not had a cold, flu, ear, throat or breast infections or any other infections. Raw food and homeopathy also strengthened my weak back and I have not suffered from back pains since. My eczema condition improved dramatically (after an initial aggravation or healing crisis which lasted several months) but was never completely cured. (see A light at the end of the tunnel)for a currant update on my eczema/psoriasis condition which is successfully being treated with Foods That Heal by Bernard Jensenflax oil, evening primrose oil, herbs, raw vegetable juice and an Edgar Cayce program).

I'm not a vegetarian. Strict vegan diets often lead to health improvements in the short-term but in the long-term they are often disastrous.*Beware of long term strict vegan diet. When I eat animal products, I try to always eat it in a raw form: smoked or salt-cured meats or fishes, raw or soft egg yolks, and raw butter and cheese made from unpasteurized cow or goat milk from organic farms. Why I leave the highly refined, rapidly absorbable carbohydrates alone; cane and beet sugar in all forms and guises, all cereal flours which means breads, pies, cakes, spaghetti, macaroni, etc., all refined cereal products such as cold and hot breakfast cereals, the quickly absorbable carbohydrate vegetables, potatoes, corn, and rice, and all sweet soft drinks.) I never microwave anything and I never use the following in my diet: sugar-free products, canola oil, and soy products.

Foods That Heal : A Guide to Understanding and Using the Healing Powers of Natural Foods



The Raw Life: Becoming Natural in an unnatural world by Paul Nison

"Food, by itself, has no healing power. Your body does the healing. However, raw foods and a proper environment give your body the raw materials it needs to detoxify, to create energy, and to rebuild. Your body knows how to heal itself and is always trying to heal. The instructions
for self-healing, in fact, are encoded in the genes of every cell in your body. As Dr. Hereward Carrington stated in his book "Fasting for Health and Long Life: Nature alone cures!" All that anyone can do is to assist her efforts, and permit her to repair the damage." Trust the intelligence of your body and allow it to heal."

"Most people have yet to touch the surface of good health. Clean and detoxify your body and you will become healthy. What doctors call a cold or an illness is simply your body working to get rid of waste. It is the effect of your body cleaning out all the unusable foods you have taken in, through overeating, consumption of poor quality foods and bad combinations.Learn and understand what detoxification is. That way you will be prepared to experience it and its tremendous benefits, physically and mentally."

"When I was 15 I started my battle with weight and overeating, a battle that raged continuously for 11 years. I had gone from being a person who ate whatever I wanted to living on a diet consisting exclusively of raw fresh organic vegetation! I still ate large quantities of food and enjoyed eating as much as ever if not more, but I lost 20 pounds in the first two months and another 22 pounds over the next three months. I'm holding now at my ideal weight of 135 pounds. I work out strong and hard every day. The intense pleasure of good health just gets stronger all the time and I'm finally enjoying my youth. At 34, I look better than I did at 26.

The Story of My Journey Into Health
By Shirley, the author of this web site

I was once a victim of the never-ending flow of propaganda from the medical establishment (which I think of as the "disease" establishment because they focus on disease rather than on prevention and wellness) who wants to maintain a monopoly on the word "cure" and who wants us to believe that we have no control over our own health and that our only hope to get "well" is with drugs, surgery and radiation. Learn how I achieved optimum health without drugs, surgery or radiation. "First do no harm..."

At the beginning of this year (1996), the doctor told my husband that he had cancer of the lung. He refused surgery/chemo, etc. Instead, I immediately began to treat my husband raw vegetable juice, herbal remedies. Over the months, doctors have continued to monitor my husband's tumor with CAT scan and PET scan. The tumor has completely stopped growing and to this day my husband is doing fine




Kim's Testimonial - "I'm in my 8th year of a natural cancer treatment for pancreatic/liver cancer. I drink nearly a gallon of freshly extracted juices daily and am currently on a 100% raw diet (which includes some raw animal products). My husband and 6 children are mostly raw as well. I've enjoyed your information and have used it to encourage others. My Facebook profile is basically for sharing what we have learned through my natural cancer treatment, in hopes it's a blessing to others." Kim

We live in a society where $33 billion dollars per year is pumped into advertising unhealthy processed foods, fast foods and junk foods - and a large percentage of that advertising is aimed right at your kids – and it works. The processed food industry has successfully changed what we consider to be “normal” in terms what we eat and what we feed our children. The processed food, junk food, and fast food industries are serving it up, Americans are gulping it down, and wide spread obesity and chronic disease is the result. From there, the masses are driven into the "waiting hands" of the highly profitable drug companies. We're offered pills that alleviate our symptoms while the simple underlying causes are ignored. Every dollar that the drug companies spend on TV drug ads result in over $4 in drug sales and there’s no end in sight. more



Alkaline Food and Water Supports Optimum Health

It has been determined that an alkaline body is more conducive to health and well-being than an acidic one. An undesirable pH can lead to a variety of negative health effects. A body that tends toward acidity heightens the risk for infections from bacteria, yeast, parasites, and viruses. All of these seek out and thrive in an acid environment. Not only are you more susceptible to infections such as colds and the flu but also degenerative diseases like cancer, arthritis, heart disease and osteoporosis are promoted if your pH is consistently acid. Furthermore, populations of bacteria, fungi, etc. may be thriving throughout your body without causing acute disease, yet producing copious acid waste products. These stealth infections may underlie a variety of degenerative conditions. Bacteria are found in arthritic joints, arterial plaque, and many other places. If disease is to be prevented or successfully managed, an acid pH must be overcome.

Body acidity is quickly becoming a focus of research in the prevention of many illnesses that result from an increased acidity within the body. Scientists have found that healthy people have systems that are alkaline. Optimum alkalinity at the cellular level equates to optimum health. A healthy person's pH level of their body fluids should be between 7.1 and 7.5 An imbalanced pH can negatively affect the physical health of almost all body systems and lead to diseases including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, kidney stones and many more. Because the modern diet is so high in acid-forming foods, most people are exposed to heightened levels of acid on a daily basis. The cells of the body in health are alkaline. In disease the cell pH is below 7.0. The more acid the cells become, the sicker we are and feel. We can remain in health by consuming a diet that is 70-80% alkaline and 20-30% acid. Most raw-foods diets are predominantly alkaline forming foods.

What about meat? Beware of long term strict vegan diet

"In spite of all the rhetoric from vegan diet teachers, there has never been a civilization in the entire world that has been able to survive on the vegan diet. Every culture depends on some type of animal products to a degree, be it eggs, milk, cheese, or meat (even insects in third world countries). This includes the Hunza people who are often falsely represented as vegan even though they eat dairy and some meat." Greg Westbrook

THE MYTHS OF VEGETARIANISM
by Stephen Byrnes, PhD, RNCP

Along with the unjustified and unscientific saturated fat and cholesterol scares of the past several decades has come the notion that vegetarianism is a healthier dietary option for people. It seems as if every health expert and government health agency is urging people to eat fewer animal products and consume more vegetables, grains, fruits and legumes. Along with these exhortations have come assertions and studies supposedly proving that vegetarianism is healthier for people and that meat consumption is associated with sickness and death. Several authorities, however, have questioned these data, but their objections have been largely ignored.

EXAMPLE OF ALL-RAW PRIMITIVE DIET, WITH ANIMAL PRODUCTS
An Interview with Aajonus Vonderplanitz

I continued eating raw meat once or twice weekly, and my health gradually increased. Whenever I experienced detoxification, healing was always a progress toward better functionality. I did not deteriorate as most people do on cooked foods or meatless raw foods. I knew I was on the right track by eating raw meat, but I could not set aside the bacteria and parasite phobias. I was especially concerned because the vagus nerve to my stomach had been severed in surgery for stomach cancer. I had no hydrochloric acid to dissolve and annihilate bacteria and parasites upon entering my body. Science and medicine put me in the category of octogenarians who they say, are in danger of death from bacterial and parasitic invasion from lack of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. I continued to eat meat anyway.

After I learned about the tremendous properties of raw fats my successes reached 60%. After I learned about the fantastic healing characteristics of eating raw meat, my successes with disease rose to 75%. After I learned the techniques for amounts and particulars that certain foods had, my successes reached 85% and better, depending upon the disease.

Why eat uncooked food," you might ask. Well, a better question to ask yourself is, "Why eat cooked food?" The truth is that there are a great number of of reasons to eat fresh, raw foods. There is growing evidence that raw foods are much easier for our bodies to digest and assimilate. As we cook or otherwise process fresh raw foods, nutrients are altered and damaged, making it harder for our bodies to optimally use the food we consume. Gradually changing to a diet rich in raw foods, including raw animal foods, can facilitate very positive and lasting health benefits.

Why Go Organic?

Ten reasons why you should go organic. Certified Organic does not just mean chemical free, it’s about the whole system; Soil, Plants, People and the Environment. The organic movement began at the same time as industrialised agriculture. It evolved through the 1950s and 1960s with the launch of such books as Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, which exposed the toxic bio-accumulative effects of pesticides. The world’s first certified organic skin, body, hair, oral and health care. Developed in Australia, the ONE Group range of products is independently certified by Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to the highest international food standards.

Processed food and fast foods are depriving us of even more essential nutrients. Many scientists believe that commercial farming, which burns out nutrients and adds poisons to the soil, as well as shipping foods "green" to ripen upon trucks, are major contributors to ill health. Many corporations continue activities harmful to our health to increase profits at the cost of our ecosystem and food chain. They do not the public about the true extent of the problem created by toxic substances and harmful additives in our foods nor about the environmental pollution generated from their manufacturing plants. A movie released a few years ago, A Civil Action, depicts this lack of accountability in the corporate arena. Finally, according to research scientist named Andreas Hartman "A class of broad spectrumantibiotics in drinking water is causing toxicity to human DNA!" Given these harsh challenges, one might seriously ask how can we best protect ourselves and optimize our health.

"Organic" Crops Raised with Pesticides?

The USDA has now stated that as long as the farmer and the organic certifier don't know the specific ingredients of the pesticides applied to the "organic" plants, the crops can be sold as "organic". To make matters worse, it is not required by law for pesticide companies to list the ingredients on their products (it's considered proprietary information), so the farmers rarely know what the specific ingredients are.

Raw Food Basket Certified Organic? Think again

Perchlorate, the explosive component of rocket and missile fuel, contaminates more than 500 drinking water sources in 20 states, serving well over 20 million people. Among contaminated sources is the Colorado River, which provides drinking water for Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas and other cities. Perchlorate can affect the thyroid gland’s ability to make essential hormones. For fetuses, infants and children, disruptions in thyroid hormone levels can cause lowered IQ, mental retardation, loss of hearing and speech, and motor skill deficits.

Trophology: The Science of Food Combination
Western physicians advise everyone to take 'a little of everything at every meal', jumbling together such disparate ingredients as meat, milk, starch, fat and sugar. Such indiscriminate consumption of food is no different than pouring a combination of gas, oil, alcohol and sugar into the gas tank of your car. These blends will not burn efficiently, will provide little power and will quickly clog up the engine so badly that the entire system grinds to a halt. learn more

"Many people believe that salt is harmful to the human body."
"The truth is we cannot live without salt (sodium chloride)" Dr. Jeffrey R. Cutler

An eight-year study of a New York City hypertensive population stratified for sodium intake levels found those on low-salt diets had more than four times as many heart attacks as those on normal-sodium diets – the exact opposite of what the “salt hypothesis” would have predicted.

Refined Salt: the problem with salt is not the salt itself but the condition of the salt we eat! Major producing companies dry their salt in huge kilns with temperatures reaching 1200 degrees F, changing he salt's chemical structure, which in turn adversely affects the human body. An abundance of the ingredients in unrefined, unheated, real salt are as synonymous with life today as they were a billion years ago before single cells appeared here. Lack of them is synonymous with birth defects, organ failure, decay, diseases, premature aging and death at a young age.

Vitality with Quality Bee Pollen

"Bee Pollen is often referred to as nature's most complete food, containing all of the 22 elements that the human body requires to function, provides you with 135 essential nutrients, a vast array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more. Human consumption of bee pollen is praised in the Bible, other religious books, and ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. It has long been prescribed by traditional health practitioners-including the fathers of Western medicine Hippocrates, Pliny the Elder, and Pythagoras-for its healing properties. Bee pollen rejuvenates the body, stimulates organs and glands, enhances vitality, and brings about a longer life span. Bee pollen's ability to consistently and noticeably increase energy levels makes it a favorite substance among many world class athletes and those interested in sustaining and enhancing quality performance."

Fulvic Acid: Nature's Miracle Molecule

Fulvic Acid and Shilajit are involved in complex biochemical reactions in living plants and animals, which directly influence the very metabolic processes at the cellular level. Fulvic acid is a humic substance or extract. Humic substances are found in rich humus soil in trace amounts and are considered nature's own best medicine for plants, animals, humans, and the Earth itself. To the science of living cells, fulvic acids are vital in bringing substantial amounts of nutrients and minerals into water solution and delivering their living energies to the living cells. Fulvic acid assists every stage of cellular metabolism and is the most powerful, natural electrolyte known. It restores electrical balance to damaged cells, neutralizes toxins and can eliminate food poisoning within minutes. Shilajit in Sanskrit means "conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness". It comes from the rocks in the lower Himalayas and is the most important natural remedy of Ayurvedic medicine. The active principle of shilajit is fulvic acid. Traditionally considered a panacea and a strong kidney tonic, it increases the core energy responsible for your sexual and spiritual power, the same force that is withered by stress and anxiety. “There is hardly any curable disease which cannot be controlled or cured with the aid of Shilajit.” - Famous Indian Vaid Charak (1st Century A.D. It is used by the indigenous system of medicine in India, Hakims and Vaids and traditional healers, in a great variety of diseases: genitourinary diseases, diabetes, chronic bronchitis, asthma, gall stones, jaundice, painful and bleeding piles, epilepsy, enlarged liver and spleen, fermentative dyspepsia, digestive disorders, worms, renal and bladder calculi, nervous debility, sexual neurasthenia, hysteria, anaemia and in bone fracture.
