"I read about everything: nutrition, raw food, juicing, kombucha tea, herbal medicine, yoga, Hulda Clark and Max Gerson and other alternative healers, ozone therapy, chelation, hypnotism, psychotherapy, the I Ching, and countless other therapies and schools of thought. For the most part, each group presented persuasive arguments to support their point of view. The raw foods people said that because we evolved from apes we should be eating only raw vegetables and fruits. The blood-type people said that your diet should be designed to work with and support the characteristics of your blood group."

"That is the main reason why I don't encourage people to go beyond the Optimal raw Diet outlined in Chapters 9 & 10. The smaller our cells, the more sensitive we are to damaging environmental toxins and inconsistencies in diet. When someone goes beyond a Liq-uidarian diet and is practically living on air alone, it's almost impossible to fathom how sensitive and refined that being becomes. In the long-run, their cells would become so extremely small that the gas pressure caused by adverse environmental conditions could have a detrimental effect on their health."
- Matt Monarch, Raw Success (Get the book.)

"Awareness is the First Step For long-term raw Success, it is important that we accomplish the tremendous task of developing control over our emotions. Nervous tension is a common trait among humanity. How many times have you seen someone with bouncy legs, fidgety movements, and nubby fingernails? Negative pent up energies affect our enjoyment of life and relationships, not to mention our health and digestion. Not staying calm often causes indigestion, noxious gas, and releases corrosive hormones caused by stress."

"Fasting can be wonderful; however, it is a crisis-causing situation. If a raw Food Eater is disturbed because they are clogged with toxins, fasting may just exacerbate the problem. Eliminating all food completely will throw the body and cells into even deeper cleansing. Fasting in this case adds more fuel to the bonfire, whereas Colonic Irriga- tion would carry the poisons out of circulation and relieve any discomfort. Can't I use some other healing method and get the same results? While other cleansing methods are helpful, they are not nearly as effective as Colonic Irrigations."

"Hair loss SIGN OF THE TIMES may also be a telltale sign that you eat lots of raw eggs—eating too many raw egg whites, or foods containing raw egg whites such as mayonnaise, mousse, steak tartare, or Caesar salad dressing, can lead to a rare condition called biotin deficiency (aka egg-white injury syndrome). Other early warning signs may include dry skin, rashes, and fine, brittle hair. If untreated, neurological and intestinal problems can develop within weeks. So if you love to eat egg whites, be sure to thoroughly heat them first."

"As a result many people are not comfortable with eating large amounts of raw garlic, or drinking garlic tea. This drawback has been overcome by the development of odourless garlic capsules or tablets, although some herbalists feel that these are less effective than the fresh clove. Capsules are widely available at pharmacies and health food shops, where you may also find garlic combined with horseradish, which is one of the best safeguards against colds, influenza, asthma and respiratory problems."

"Contraindications: Do not regularly eat raw soybeans, soy flour, or protein powder made from raw, un-roasted, or unfermented beans, because they can damage the pancreas over time (see Safety Issues with raw Soybeans).40'41 • Drug interactions: None known. Safety Issues with raw Soybeans For years, soy skeptics have been discussing two potentially harmful components in soybeans that may interfere with protein digestion and mineral absorption. raw soybeans contain trypsin inhibitors, compounds that interfere with the metabolism of protein by the pancreatic enzyme trypsin."

"Eat 'em raw or just-cooked. Cooking food can draw out a lot of the vitamins and minerals, so whenever you can, try to eat fruits and vegetables in their natural raw or unprocessed state or minimally cooked. Try fresh fruits, raw or steamed vegetables and salads. Don't boil. Boiling draws out more minerals and vitamins from foods than other cooking methods, says Grabowski. "The less time spent in the oven, on the stove or surrounded by hot water, the better." She recommends steaming or microwaving. Store smartly. Exposure to air can rob food of vitamins and minerals."

"The raw foods people said that because we evolved from apes we should be eating only raw vegetables and fruits. The blood-type people said that your diet should be designed to work with and support the characteristics of your blood group. Dr. Max Gerson claimed you have to load your body with vitamins from organic fruits and vegetables and detoxify your body with enemas. Acupuncturists declared that your governor meridian had excess yin. Psychologists thought you are refusing to let go of your past."

"Somewhere in the raw data, Targ believed, separated out from the dogma of the times, lay the truth. Elisabeth agreed to collaborate with Sicher, even though privately she doubted it was ever going to work. She would put distant healing to the purest test. She would try it out on her patients with advanced AIDS, a group so certain to die that nothing other than hope and prayer was open to them anymore. She would find out whether prayer and distant intention could cure the ultimate hopeless case. She began trawling through the evidence on healing."

"Eating habits ?Fletcherizing, overlapping, overeating, etc. 0 Stress & Environment All these points mentioned above can produce excessive gas if they are out of balance. The less we eat and the more optimal our lifestyle, the less fermentative gas we have. Less fermentative gas means reduced obstructions in our bloodstream. Conversely, a clogged bloodstream slows down cellular detox because the tremendous gas pressure against the cells is too great."

"Rodriguez reported nine sterility failures and bacterial contamination in the facility environment, its equipment, and raw materials from 2001 to 2003. "In five instances, the bacteria were identified as Propkmibacterium acnes, Staphylococcus and Bacillus pumilus. The Propionibacterium was found in environmental samples of the manufacturing areas, in the equipment and in one of the raw materials. Bacillus pumilus, was found repeatedly in environmental samples of the manufacturing areas."

"This constant energy demand makes the heart especially vulnerable to even subtle deficiencies of the raw materials contributing to ATP generation. In metabolic cardiology, we encourage the heart's enzymatic energy reactions in a preferential direction as opposed to the pharmaceutical approach that blocks enzymatic reactions. We do it with CoQIO, L-carnitine, and D-ribose. They feed the enzymatic production of ATP in the mitochondria. Angina patients have gone beyond a critical metabolic threshold. They have burned off their CoQ 10 and L-carnitine and ATP precursor pool."

"Cholesterol is a basic raw material that enzymes convert into vitamin D, steroid hormones (such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and Cortisol), and the bile acids needed for digestion. You need cholesterol to construct the semipermeable membrane that surrounds your cells. You also need it to regenerate damaged endothelial cells. The liver produces this fatlike waxy substance—about 800 mg a day, enough to cover your body's needs. You may also get cholesterol in your diet if you eat meat, eggs, and dairy such as milk and cheese."

"That's because the vitamin serves as an essential raw material for the manufacture of strong collagen—the structural protein that makes up connective tissue, including arterial tissue. With little vitamin C in the system, collagen's ability to maintain and repair tissue suffers. The tissue that comprises blood vessels, both large and small, becomes weak and more easily damaged. Pauling felt that Lp(a) evolved to serve as a temporary patch during periods of vitamin C deficiency."

"PC is a vital raw material for the transmission of nerve impulses and processing of cholesterol. Although your body makes choline, a primary constituent of PC, you still have to consume some in your diet to maintain health. The most common source of choline is lecithin, a special kind of fat called a phospholipid that is found in egg yolks, liver, peanuts, wheat germ, cauliflower, milk, and soybeans. As a heart-healthy nutritional supplement, lecithin was wildly popular about twenty-five years ago."

"Inulin is found in onions, chichory root and dandelions; oligosaccharides are found in artichokes, leeks and asparagus; beta-glucan is found in seaweed, oats and barley; pectin is found in apples and apricots; and resistant starch is found in raw bananas, potatoes and beans. Research has shown that eating prebiotics can improve the growth of lactic bacteria in your intestines, especially Bifidobacteria. Prebiotics also help to inhibit the growth of a variety of undersirable microorganisms."

"Certain foods, known as goitrogens, can actually block thyroid hormone production when eaten raw or to excess. Examples of goitrogenic foods are turnips, cabbage, mustard greens, soybeans, cauliflower, peanuts, pine nuts, millet, and cassava root. If you have thyroid problems, usually not more than one of these foods daily is recommended. Fermented soy (tempeh or miso) does not cause any problems and can be eaten freely. Generally soy should be limited to 30 to 60 mg a day (5 to 8 oz of soy milk contain 30 mg of soy isoflavones)."

"In addition, infection can occur after drinking raw milk and after swimming in or drinking sewage-contaminated water. Based on a 1999 estimate, 73,000 cases of infection and 61 deaths occur in the United States each year. Infection with E. coli often leads to bloody diarrhea and occasionally to kidney failure. Once digested, E. coli attaches to the host epithelial cells and causes detrimental changes to them. Probiotics can positively change the cells that line the intestines so that bad bacteria such as E. coli cannot live there."

"Others tell me that eating makes them feel insulated and protected instead of vulnerable and raw, which is like being held close to your mother's chest. You use food, whether consciously or unconsciously, to numb the mind so you don't have to deal with issues you'd rather not confront. I call the altered state of mind where food transports us a "food trance/' something I'll expand upon later. It's a very important factor in the story of compulsive eating."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Include a raw vegetable salad (and fruit) every day. AVOID: broiling, frying, hot-oven roasting, grilling, barbecuing. LOSE WEIGHT, FEEL FULL, LIVE LONGER Feeling full or no longer feeling hungry—also known as satiety-—by eating nutritious, lower-calorie foods is a very effective way to lose and manage weight. Maintaining a stable and healthy body weight is a key component of not only diabetes prevention but also diabetes management. In fact, we have observed several patients who no longer needed blood sugar—reducing pharmaceuticals after they lost a sufficient amount of weight."

"A person's identity is thus equated with the raw "meat" of their brain such that when that organ is injured or even reduced in size, so is their humanity. A mind-set of fatalism sets in, causing us to write our loved ones off and lament their progressive decline as we understand their condition through the loss-of-self metaphor. As I expressed earlier, cognition and rationality must not be equated with personhood. This viewpoint, which the late Tom Kitwood called the "malignant social psychology" of dementia, often precludes the empa-thetic engagement that persons who are aging deserve."
- Peter J. Whitehouse and Daniel George, The Myth of Alzheimer's: What You Aren't Being Told About Today's Most Dreaded Diagnosis (Get the book.)

"In midlife there is an observable decline in everyone's raw mental agility—the ability to recall lists of objects, group objects into classes, and replace words with numbers (or vice versa). The speed of reaction to the world is also compromised. As the brain grows older in our latter decades, it undergoes complex biochemical, molecular, structural, and functional changes that are poorly understood by modern science."
