Q and A Series: People, Products and the Health of Our Planet – Interview with Swayze Foster (Low Fat Raw Vegan)

For the fourth interview, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Swayze Foster. I never met her, but found out about her through another raw vegan foodie’s website. She has excellent FREE information to share with the public and great insight, as well. I hope we can meet someday and share some wonderful fruit-filled adventures!

To access Swayze Foster’s Website, please click on the link I have provided on the right-hand side of the page under the column titled Blogroll

Question #1: Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved
in the “health” industry?

I became interested in health and fitness fairly young, at about 17 years old. In 2006, I purchased Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s book Eat to Live. This put me on the whole food, plant-based path, but I wanted more. My health wasn’t where I had expected it to be (e.g. anemia, fatigue, restless leg syndrome, “everyday” aches and pains, and a few extra pounds) and so I went raw in 2007.

After a brief yet unpleasant encounter with the high-fat, gourmet raw way (and the promise to myself that I was done with raw), I stumbled upon the low fat, high fruit raw way via Frederic Patenaude’s Raw Secrets. My health improved within days and I was hooked.

In early 2009, I was at a bit of a crossroads career-wise. I was enrolled in university, but I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with my life. When I finally asked myself what I would do if I could do anything, the answer was simple: raw foods. I was spending so much of my time educating myself, visiting forums, and helping others—and enjoying every minute of it—why shouldn’t I make a career out of it?

So I worked hard for 3 months and on June 18, 2009, I launched my website http://www.fitonraw.com. And the rest is history.

Question #2: If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed to take only 5 items with you (they can be food, books or specific products that are all health-related), what would they be and why?

Well, I would prefer a boat, fuel, and a GPS, so I could make it back home. But I guess those aren’t food, book, or health products. 😉

1) A survival handbook
2) A machete
3) A receptacle for holding water
4) A huge bag of wheat berries
5) A huge bag of dried fruit and nuts

I figure a water receptacle and machete are health-related, seeing as you can’t live without water and a tool for exploring and building a shelter would be pretty important too. 🙂

Question #3: What one message do you want to share with the people of this world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?

Getting healthy is simple, but it isn’t easy. It will require work and there will be obstacles that you must overcome.

The good news? You’re worth it.

Questions #4: If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this moment to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?

Actually, what I recommend isn’t a product at all and won’t cost you a dime. In fact, it’ll actually save you money!

My recommendation is one 24-hour fast (water only). You’ll be amazed by how clean and clear-headed you’ll feel just by skipping a few meals. It’s also a great way to jumpstart transitioning to a healthier lifestyle.

Question #5: Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?

My website Fit On Raw: Raw Food for Practical Fitness (www.fitonraw.com) is dedicated to helping everyday (i.e. non-athlete) people go raw and get fit on a healthy and sustainable raw food diet.

I currently offer my low fat raw recipe e-book “Low Fat, Fruit Filled, High Fun Raw Recipes,” my cravings program “How to Conquer Your Cooked Food Cravings Once and for All,” and my members-only site “The Rawkin’ Raw Club”.

You will receive an automatic 25% discount on How to Conquer Your Cooked Food Cravings by clicking the link for Swayze Foster that is listed on the right-hand side of this page when you scroll down to the Blogroll section.

Question #6: What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of the people and the planet?

I hope that more people will realize that they are the true masters of their life. No physician, nutritionist, or government bureaucrat can or should supply us with the education, motivation, support, or food that we need to be healthy and happy.

It is up to each one of us to educate ourselves (read all the books you can, watch movies, surf the web), to stay motivated (write down your reasons for getting healthy, post motivational images and sayings around your house), to seek out support (www.meetup.com), and to source quality food (www.localharvest.org & http://www.pickyourown.org).

Question #7: Who is your greatest hero and why?

Ayn Rand, for her dedication to truth, knowledge, and freedom.

Question #8: Is there anything else you would like to share with the public?

There is never a right time to go raw or improve your lifestyle. It doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of winter or the peak of summer, you will always find excuses to put your goals aside.

My advice is to get started as soon as possible. Anyone can do this simply my replacing one unhealthy food choice with a healthy one each day. For instance, replace breakfast with a fruit smoothie or replace your mid-afternoon snack with fresh salsa and celery sticks.

Question #9: I know that there are variables as to how much food/calories each person consumes when eating raw vegan food (based on many lifestyle factors, etc), but is there a basic guideline you would recommend for everyone?

Eat as much fruit as you care for, eat generous portions of vegetables (focus on greens), and limit your intake of nuts, seeds, avocados, and other fatty foods (e.g. 1-2 ounces of nuts, 1/2-3/4 of a Hass avocado). Eat the best quality produce you can find and include as much variety as you can throughout the year.

Q and A Series: People, Products and the Health of Our Planet – Interview with Diane Mahoney of Environne

For the third interview, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Diane Mahoney, owner of Environne. I met Diane many years ago at the Natural Product Expo in Anaheim, CA. We “clicked” right away (I think it is the East Coast connection). She had a booth there and told me about the product she was selling. At the time there was only 1 product (fruit and vegetable wash) and then as I would see her every year, she started to expand her line and include cleaning products. All of her products are 100 percent natural. I can vouch for them, as I personally use them. My favorite product is the Multi-Task Cleaner – I use it every day. I have even used it when I travel. I will spray down my hotel room – from the tables, faucets, door knobs, phone, tv remote, etc. Since it has natural denatured alcohol, that will kill any bacteria that might be “hanging around” from other patrons. I even tell the cleaning person not to use their products in my room because they are chemically-based. I don’t want to have to breathe it in. I have also used it when I rent a car and spray all the inside parts I will touch and the door handles. You may find other uses for it that I haven’t tried yet.

Question #1: Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved
in the “health” industry?

It was through my studies of completing a Special Education degree that I first became aware of a suspected relationship between pesticides and the dramatic increase in serious childhood disorders,including autism and learning disabilities. In my quest to find a solution for protecting children against toxic chemicals on their fruits and vegetables, I found and purchased a non-toxic formula that was PROVEN to remove surface contaminants. In the early days I was bottling the formula in a basement while while completing my Special Education degree. Shortly after the purchase, I contacted the EPA and other governmental agencies in the pursuit of mandates to assist with regulating dangerous chemicals on the foods we eat. I decided, after many frustrating and politically-charged disputes, to dedicate myself to the “David vs. Goliath” crusade by educating people about agricultural pesticides (a $37 billion industry),and by finding a way to protect children and provide families with pesticide free produce.

Question #2: If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed to take only 5 items with you (they can be food, books or specific products that are all health-related), what would they be and why?

Journal and My kids blankets for obvious reasons. Water to wash down my vitamins- cod liver oil, DHEA, Vit. D, Aloe Vera juice, Liquid Calcium and magnesium.

Question #3: What one message do you want to share with the people of this
world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?

To eat something Green everyday and of course washed with Environné Fruit and Vegetable Wash.

Questions #4: If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this
moment to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?

Cod Liver Oil for its great qualities for skin, brain function and 0ptimum heart
function.

Question #5: Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you
offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?

We manufacture a non-toxic soap designed to remove chemical residues from
your fruits and vegetables. These unwanted residues have been known through extensive research,to cause various cancers, brain developments problems and severe allergic reactions. Water alone simply is not capable of completely removing oil based chemicals that are used in the fields.

Question #6: What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of
the people and the planet?

That EVERY household is properly washing their fruits and vegetables to avoid any unwanted health risk, especially in pregnant women.

Question #7: Who is your greatest hero and why?

Never thought about it. There are many adults that I admire for their wisdom, profession and personal commitment to helping others.

Question #8: Is there anything else you would like to share with the public?

Eating and staying fit are choices that only you can make for yourself. Choosing to be healthy and to enjoy food and the benefits of staying fit through various options, will make you feel good and ready to hit the ground running in anything you choose to make a difference with.

Q & A Series: People, Products and The Health of Our Planet – Interview with Andrew Perlot (Raw Vegan Food)

For the second interview, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Andrew Perlot. I have never met him, but know him through his website that I introduced to by another raw foodie. He has great free information/articles on his site, so please do check it out. He backs up his info with research/ sources at the bottom of his articles, as well. I like his easy going style and the fact that he was able to overcome some serious health issues and looks like a shining example (at the age of 27) of living a raw vegan lifestyle the right way! Check out the before and after pictures below (ages 17, 23 and 25) – that is a great testimonial, in and of itself!

Namaste!
Chef Mindy aka Ageless Raw (low-fat) Vegan Beauty

Question #1: Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved in the “health” industry?

I spent my youth overweight and fairy sick. I maxed out at 220 pounds when I was 17 years old, and although I started getting myself into shape after that, I suffered from increasingly bad colitis in my college years, a horrible disease that was ruining my life. Besides this, I suffered from chronic migraines, backaches and other problems.

Addendum to Question #1

Did You immediately go to raw food (and was it low fat from the start or did you try other ways first, too) or did you try other things first like macrobiotics, cooked vegan, etc?

I made the first small-scale improvements to my diet in 2001, when I was 17, such as drinking more water and less soda, eating less processed foods, and replacing some deserts with fruit. Soon after this I started drinking less milk, realizing that it had a very negative effect on my digestive system.

By the age of 20 around 2003, I was eating a low fat cooked food vegan diet centered around whole foods.

I spent much of 2005 suffering from ever-worsening colitis, and after being disgusted with the answers given to me by my doctor, I started fooling around with diets with no grains or starches, and although they helped, I couldn’t find one I could eat enough calories on without eating unhealthy levels of fat, until I learned that fruit was the perfect replacement to calorically-dense grains and starches that were aggravating to my system.

I started a low fat raw food diet based around whole fruits and vegetables in 2005 (at the age of 22) to see it it would cure my colitis – it worked like a charm, and also left me feeling better and possessing far more energy than I’d ever experienced in my life. I amazed myself by how much stamina my body possessed, and by 2009 I’d logged my first marathon. Over the years I’ve developed some effective weight loss strategies and dropped down to 158 pounds, for a total loss of 62 pounds, which is like shedding the entire body weight of a six year old boy from your body.

By the end of 2005 I was on my first 30-day low fat raw food trial, and my symptoms were hugely reduced by the end of it. After 60 days, I could eat a wide variety of fruit and some leafy greens. A year later I could handle raw cruciferous and harder-to-digest vegetables like broccoli with no problems.

Up until the beginning of 2007, I ate approximately 90 to 95 percent raw, and I would periodically try to eat cooked vegan foods to see if I could find some equilibrium between all raw and cooked vegan that would allow me to feel fantastic and keep my colitis in check. I failed to find such a sweet spot, and in 2007 I decided there wasn’t one.

I’ve been all raw since, and feel fantastic.

By 2008, I was fielding so many questions from people interested in how I ate that I decided it would be far more efficient to start a website and write articles that could be accessed by thousands. My goal was to make sure that no one had to suffer, like I did, for lack of life-changing health information. Raw-Food-Health.net was born to provide free information on a wide variety of raw-related topics, and it continues on that path today. Well over 90 percent of the content I produce is free.

By 2010 the site had grown enough to provide me with a bit of income, and I quit my job as a newspaper reporter to work on it full time. As of September 2011, it was averaging 69,394 unique visitors every 30 days, making it one of the most popular raw food websites on the internet.

Question #2: If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed to take only 5 items with you (they can be food, books or specific products that are all health-related), what would they be and why?

1) An infinite bowl of Nam Dok Mai Mangoes: My favorite type of mangoes. They’re high enough in calories to support a strenuous life while being watery enough to keep me reasonably well hydrated, even if there wasn’t a ton of water around. I also never get sick of them.
2) Infinite Bowl Of Celery: I start to feel poorly and my health and athletic performance starts to decline if I don’t get some greens in regularly. Celery offers an array of minerals that fruit alone cannot provide.

3+4) My machete and a big box packed with a wide variety of low-water tolerant fruit and vegetable seeds and corms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corms): I’ve got a permaculture design certificate under my belt and a great deal of interest in growing fruit in arid environments, and my goal would be to pull a Greening The Desert (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sohI6vnWZmk) on that island and turn it into an abundant paradise. You can’t live on mangoes and celery for years and be in great health, so I’d need to diversify. If a rescue party happened to find me 30 years down the road, they’d discover my island overflowing with dates, pomegranates, figs, citrus, and gardens of vegetables.

5) My laptop and a solar charger: I’m well aware that health is not confined to what you eat and how you exercise, but dependent on a wide variety of health factors, such as sleep, managing your mind, and many other pillars. These are topics I talk about at length in The Raw Food Lifestyle: http://www.raw-food-health.net/Raw-Food-Lifestyle-EBook.html#axzz1ZWXVsQJO
One of the critical aspects of a healthy lifestyle is creative expression. There is no one right way to do it, but writing is one of my passions. There are many books I could write, and doing so would be good way to enjoy myself and stay sane while isolated thousands of miles from other human beings.

Question #3: What one message do you want to share with the people of this world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?

Got health problems? So did I. I was once miserable, fat, depressed, sick, and convinced these factors were outside of my control – I was just a bad throw of the genetic dice, I believed. When I learned to control my mind, eat a healthy diet, and take positive actions in all areas of my life, my situation changed dramatically. Today, I find my life is joy. I love my body, because it does everything I ask of it. It never gets sick, carries me through the activities I enjoy with grace and ease, and frankly looks a heck of a lot better than it did when I was trashing it at every meal. This is a far cry from the hatred I once had for it when I believed it a curse I could not escape.

If you think you’ll never get free of your challenges, know that there are ways forward.

For general health, the most effective diet I’ve ever found is simply consuming more ripe fruit than I’d ever considered normal or optimal, tons of vegetables, and relatively little fat. Ignore the salt, beverages (other than water) spices, supplements, vitamin pills, and other useless junk people try to sell you.

It works like a charm for me and many of those who read my website, and it can work for you.

Questions #4: If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this moment to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?

Considering that I spend so much time talking about diet, it would seem likely I’d choose something food-related to recommend, and there certainly are some great books in that category. But I think it’s naive to expect a single product to be all things to all people.

Everyone is at unique stages of development in the different areas in their life. For some, their diet or exercise routine is floundering or nonexistent and they feel the need to really boost that up. Others have their diets down pat and don’t need any help. Some are depressed, allow their mind to run rampant, hate their job, are in ridiculous relationships, or have some other weak point they need to address, all of which are factors playing into their health.

I prefer to suggest a product which offers a meta-solution, so to speak. It doesn’t address diet or exercise directly, but recognizes that improvement is the constant goal, and suggests a new way of looking at the world. If you start working on your life in the way that it suggests, health improvement will simply be one of the areas you embrace.

This audio program was suggested to me when I was a Freshman in college. After listening to it a few times I started getting a handle on why, although the weight loss and easing of my depression I’d experienced earlier had been great, I didn’t really see the connections so I could recognize why I’d had improvements or how I could build on them further. As time has gone on, I’ve come to appreciate this ground-level introduction to smart thinking and realized it’s a scaffolding from which I’ve gone on to learn more advanced ideas and formulate my own.

The material is actually quite old, but timeless in value. The speaker, whose deep gravely voice I initially found off putting, but which I now enjoy, is Earl Nightingale, who was famous in the 1950s for his motivational speaking.

“Lead The Field,” (http://www.nightingale.com/prod_detail~product~Lead_Field~audio~2144.aspx) The audio program I suggest, is from the 1970s, and was a synthesis of his many ideas in one compact form.

What I hope health seekers will get out of it is an understanding that having the most ripped abs in their town will not make them healthy if they don’t know how to think and solve problems creatively, a trait most people never develop. If your mind isn’t growing, you’ll never be at your best (note, you want the audio program, not the book by the same name).

Question #5: Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?

Raw-Food-Health.net exists to provide free information that people can use to revolutionize their health and understand the cause of their disorders and maladies. I want people to know that the vast majority of diseases and disorders humanity suffers from are caused our actions, not our genes, which are, despite what people like to think, of little importance in the grand scheme of health (http://www.raw-food-health.net/Genetics-And-Disease.html). This viewpoint may be annoying for those who like to blame outside factors, but I find it incredibly empowering, for it means that we have the power to improve our lives dramatically.

I also offer a one-on-one coaching service (http://www.raw-food-health.net/Raw-Food-Coaching.html), and two e-books for sale through the site.

The first is “Savory Raw Dressings And Sauces,” (http://www.raw-food-health.net/Savory-Raw-Dressings-And-Sauces.html). I created this e-book because so many people have no idea that you can make healthy dressings that avoid the oil, salt, vinegar, spices, and other unhealthy foods that people normally ruin their salads with. When you avoid these items, you can still have a tasty finished product that will delight your taste buds. Eating well does not have to be dolorous.

All you need is delicious raw fruits, vegetables, and herbs to make amazing salad dressings. I explain how in the book.

The second is “The Raw Food Lifestyle,” which tries to emphasize that while diet can change your life, food choices alone won’t take you all the way to health anymore than just exercising will. The book goes into detail about managing your mind, living in a cooked food world as a raw foodist, exercise, sunshine, sleep, and many other topics critical to health and happiness on this planet.

Discount Code: RawsomeRawLifestyle
The first 25 buyers of The Raw Food Lifestyle purchased by itself using this discount code will receive 25 percent off the purchase price. Code expires November 23, 2011.

Discount Code: RawsomeSavoryAndLifestyle
The first 15 buyers to purchase The Raw Food Lifestyle and Savory Raw Dressings And Sauces together will receive 25 percent off the purchase price. Both books must be in your cart at the time of checkout for the code to function. Code expires November 23, 2011.

Question #6: What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of the people and the planet?
1) That people will realize the vast majority of illnesses are a choice, and that they can just as easily choose health, vastly changing the world.
2) That our streets will be lined with fruit trees, and food forests will replace the soil-destroying mono crops of annual plants that stretch across most of this world.
3) That polluting factory farms will disappear.
4) That because fruit orchards produce more calories per acre than animal husbandry and any other vegetative crop, that we can allow more land to return to wilderness, so the rest of the animals and plants on this planet can have a place to thrive, and the critical rain forests can return.
5) That one day, you’ll be able to eat 20 peaches in public without anyone blinking an eye, because it will be seen as the natural, responsible, tastiest way to eat.

Question #7: Who is your greatest hero and why?

I certainly respect many people, primarily pioneers, inventors, explorers, and others who have pushed past doubt and adversity to go after their dreams, but I can’t say I’ve ever embraced anyone as a hero. No one has ever fit my ideal mold closely enough, so I’ve tended to follow the beat of my own drum, which I find more rewarding.

Question #8: I know that there are variables as to how much food/calories each person consumes when eating raw vegan food (based on many lifestyle factors, etc), but is there a basic guideline you would recommend for everyone?

It’s true that caloric needs will vary greatly depending on size, activity level, and other factors, but the basic ideal diet for a 60-year-old sedentary house wife, a 25-year-old body builder, and a 40-year-old marathon runner are the same.

The only real ideas you need to embrace are to eat only whole, ripe, raw fruits and vegetables and to keep your fat intake under 10 percent of calories consumed. If you do so, you’ll find your protein intake is automatically in the ideal range of less than 10 percent of calories consumed, and your carbohydrate intake is automatically in the ideal range of at least 80 percent of calories consumed.

There are many caveats and individual questions that need to be answered, which I address on my site, but that’s the simple overview that applies to all. If a diet is too complicated, there’s probably something fishy about it.

Forget pills, supplements, and “cures.” Whole, raw, ripe fruits and vegetables are all you need to thrive like never before.

Q & A Series : People, Products and The Health of Our Planet – Interview with Rama – Paradise (Raw Vegan Food) Diet

For my first interview in this series, you will have the pleasure of reading insights from Rama, who in his own words, and I quote, said “everything I wrote was spontaneous and tailored to your questions and your audience.” I have not met him personally or talked with him on the phone. I made the connection with him through the website of another person who is following a raw vegan lifestyle. His pleasant voice (listened to some audio interviews he has done), kind demeanor and warmth resonated with me immediately. I also like the fact that he went out on his own to discover what is good for his physical body and otherwise. Rama, to me, is a very deep spiritual person/being who has some great information to share with the world and wants to help you to heal yourself. Ultimately, YOU are your own greatest Healer!

To access Rama’s Website, please click on the link I have provided on the right-hand side of the page under the column titled blogroll

Namaste!
Chef Mindy aka Ageless Raw (low-fat) Vegan Beauty

Question #1: Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved in the “health” industry?

My goal is to empower people!

As I learned more and more about how to heal myself from the inside out, by studying Nature and my own body, I wanted to share what I was learning with others.

I feel it is everyone’s right to use their Infinite Power to become who they want to be, and to heal and beautify their bodies.

As I learned simple techniques through Self-exploration and bodily evolution, I naturally wanted to share those techniques with others for their benefit.

I do healing work for people, but the main goal of my healing work is to help them to heal themselves.

As I help people to heal and empower themselves, then we can all work together on a massive scale to cause global and Universe-wide transformation.

Question #2: If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed to take only 5 items with you (they can be food, books or specific products that are all health-related),
what would they be and why?

I wouldn’t take anything with me because I don’t need or want anything other than my own body.

Assuming the desert island was warm enough and had a sufficient supply of coconuts, I wouldn’t need to bring anything with me

All my techniques are centered around the fact that your body is your personal Eternal playground, and as you play in the body you find there’s nothing better

So I would be having fun in Nature playing with my body from the inside out, learning how to levitate and turn my body into crystal and gold, while “stranded” on the island.

Question #3: What one message do you want to share with the people of this world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?

You follow the flow of joy in all that you do, this is my one rule for all of life: “Follow the Flow of Joy.” The means more than to just do what you think you love, following the flow of Joy means listening to the voice of your Soul, your Highest Self, your True Nature, and only ever doing that which is in accordance with the Divine Plan.

What this looks like in practice is doing what you truly love and enjoy, even if it’s not always what you intellectually or even emotionally think is best.

There is something higher than intellect and emotions, it is your Flow of Joy.

Fortunately for all of us, the flow of Joy can be felt in the body as the various messages and feelings your body sends you.

So if your womb hurts when you think about someone or something, that means “no, don’t do that” or “avoid that person.”

If your whole body relaxes when you think about doing something, that means “Yes, you should do this”

So following the flow of Joy means listening to your body!

Because She (your body) is always right!

Questions #4: If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this moment
to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?

My whole point is you don’t need products, you need your body. I would only recommend people to purchase that which they know will further their Self-empowerment process, and that is different for everyone but each person must decide “Yes, this product or service will help me become more Me and achieve what I want in life by showing me how to use my OWN power”

When you find such a product or service, that is what you should use your hard-earned energy/money on.

Because only that product will yield even MORE energy that what it costs, by helping you to access your own energy/power Source.

Question #5: Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?

I offer telephone sessions, remote/long-distance healing sessions, recorded .mp3 audios, as well as email sessions.

I also teach a 3 month course that is done by phone on the subject of Self-empowerment, personal healing, and starting a healing business.

At my website, http://www.evernewjoy.com, you can get access to 45+ hours of complimentary (no cost) music, audio information, videos, and interviews that will give you a very clear understanding of exactly how I think and what my system of healing is and how it can help you to empower yourself.

So rather than extensively explain my healing methodology here, I recommend you check out the large quantity of free information on my site that is in a variety of information mediums.

If you are completely new to my material, I recommend you check out my music first.

It is all composed, recorded, and played by just me by myself:
Rama’s Complimentary and Self-created Music
http://evernewjoy.net/?page_id=65

Question #6: What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of the people and the planet?

It is my wish that the entire social structure of the planet be changed so that it supports its own members (the people) and also the planet Herself.

Toward this goal I run my healing business to help people become empowered so they can do their own Soul missions and participate in the healing of the planet and the Universe.

Question #7: Who is your greatest hero and why?

I am my own greatest Hero because I have achieved more in this lifetime than all my past lifetimes combined, toward the betterment and Beautification of Creation.

Question #8: Is there anything else you would like to share with the public?

If you have read this far into this article I’d like to ask you “what do you find different about my message and my material?” I do think you’ll find it is my emphasis on YOU.

YOU are the one with all the power you are seeking, all the beauty and all the health you are wanting.

YOU are the one who will change the world and make yourself as you wish to be.

So use these very moments to focus on YOU instead of me, as that is my goal with all my healing work, to help you to be YOU.

So try deeply feeling the top of your brain.

Focus on feeling your body, at the very top of your head.

This is the part of your body that helps you connect to your Higher Wisdom and will help you to understand everything I am saying in a whole new way.

I am serious, please do this now, for about 5 minutes.

See what sensations you notice as you do this!

Question #9: I know that there are variables as to how much food/calories each person consumes when eating raw vegan food (based on many lifestyle factors, etc), but is there a basic guideline you would recommend for everyone?

I have my own raw food diet system called the Paradise Diet which is much more well defined than just “the raw food diet.”

In my system you cannot just eating anything you want, whenever you want, as long as it is raw.

In my dietary system, everything must be raw, and it must also not be dehydrated or powdered, it must be a fresh whole food.

In the Paradise Diet there are three food groups:

1. Fruits/carbohydrates
2. Vegetables/proteins and minerals
3. Nuts and seeds/fat source

In my dietary system you must have a proper balance of these three food groups in order to be eating a healthy diet.

No Mixing

Also in my Paradise Diet, I do not recommend people mix the food groups.

You should eat each food group by itself, at the time of your eating cycles when you want that food group the most.

Listen to Your Body

You must follow your flow of joy (see above questions and answers) to know how to eat my Paradise Diet correctly.

In other words, you must put the Goddess in charge.

You must put your body in charge of your nutrition acquistion.

You must eat according to your own body’s wishes, rather than your intellectual thoughts or even your emotions.

You must listen to the Higher Wisdom of your physical body, and She will tell you which food group you should eat and how much.

I do offer telephone sessions and email sessions on helping people to understand diet and ultimately the principles of my Paradise Diet.

My Paradise Diet is for everyone because it is designed to help you align with your own specific nutritional needs.

I do not provide numbers or statistics and tablespoons and caloric values, I ask you to tune into the wisdom of your body and eat as the animals do, and as Nature does.

🙂

Victory to You!
Rama
