Why Raw Food?

Raw food cured me of a debilitating arthritis in my hips that I was convinced would land me in a wheel chair. Also, I am much more stable and emotionally secure when I am eating %95 to %100 raw. Also, I have several food alergies that raw cures.

Have you ever fasted? If so, what kind of fast? How often?

I have never taken a serious fast. I have gone a few days eating raw fruit and raw juices exclusively, but never for longer than 3 days. I tend to take a very simple approach to raw that involves few if any raw recipes.

What do you believe are the miracles of raw food? What is your favorite raw food dish?

For me the miracle is the incredible lightness of being, the integration with the divine, and the amazing health benefits. I am much happier when I am consistently on a simple raw regimen. My favorite raw dish is currently mango/avocado/red onion.

How do you think peace in the world is affected by health and well being?

This can not be over stated!! I am a more peaceful human being when I am healthy, more centered, and mentally alert. I am a more conscious being, and abhor violence even when I see it on television. I can only believe that the world reflects this.


I have been studying raw foods for approximately 20 years now, and have had several lapses back to cooked foods during that time. I would like to become more consistent with my approach, and believe that a support group would be very helpful.
