Sick, tired, overweight, obese, taking aspirin, taking medication, unhappy, lethargic?
You have limitless potential.
Raw foods give the gift of life. If you plant a fruit, nut, or seed in the ground, you will grow a tree or plant. If you plant a burger and fries or a slice of bread, you will get mold.
On our coaching call for the Total Wellness Cleanse the other night, we talked exclusively about allergies and how they come about. After the call, I was thinking – no wonder people develop allergies to even raw foods – in my case it’s pineapple and eggplant that give me extreme problems. Over years of abuse from cooked and processed foods, not to mention loads of sugar to feed the eager beaver yeastie eaters (Candidiasis), my digestive system was in such turmoil that my immune system responded unfavourably toward undigested raw foods as well.
Once the intestines have been irritated so much, undigested food particles obtain access to the blood stream, and the body launches all out war against the alien particles. Antibiotics, sugar, wheat, processed foods, etc. open the door for disbiosis, altered balance of the gut microflora, and consequently a yeast problem in the gut. Once this happens, allergies present themselves. And I’m not talking about just the life or death allergies, but food intolerances that make you feel slow, tired, brain foggy, and simply tired all over. And you may not even know about them!
All you can do at this point is continue to feel lethargic, or you can turn your life around and GO RAW NOW!
Everyone agrees that we should eat more fruits and vegetables. But they think I’m some weird granola child when I tell them that I don’t cook my food! What gives? Maybe they are jealous. Maybe they think they could never live this life. Maybe they are too bogged down by cooked, processed food to open up their minds to the idea. Or maybe, just maybe, they are sick and tired enough to see the light. You can feel healthy and vibrant. If you think you can’t, you can’t. If you think you can, you can. Every single person has it in them to feel their best ever. And the best thing is – it’s your choice. You can change your life right this second. What’s it going to be?
One thought on “GO RAW NOW”
I just discovered your blog. Wow, well done, it’s an awesome site! And congrats on your progress with raw food, the transformation is totally visible and it’s great that you’re feeling so good about it!
I have been vegan for almost 1 year and have recently (12 jan 2009) changed to raw foods after a failed attempt last November (didn’t have enough information, eat too little during the day and ended up binging on nuts and anything else in sight at night).
I have been seeing the same transformations that you describe, I lost over 4lbs within the first 2 weeks (glad to have gotten rid of those Christmas pounds), my skin feels better, my belly is less bloated (I blame wheat for the bloating even though I’m not intolerant). I feel totally energised, happy, light, floating above the ground, sleeping well, totally in sync with my environment :-).
So, I will keep following your blog because it is awesome and I love reading raw food blogs.
All the best on your journey!
