In 1994, my family experienced an intense decline in health. Faced with our numerous incurable illnesses, (juvenile diabetes, hyper thyroid, chronic fatigue, arrhythmia, arthritis, asthma, and allergies) my mother began researching nutrition. She finally stumbled upon the raw food diet (a diet comprised of fresh fruits, greens, and vegetables). After switching over to a healthful way of eating we were able to fully reverse our symptoms and regain vibrant health. Since that time my family has been dedicated to helping people around the globe learn about natural healing and nutrition by writing books, making films, and presenting health lectures.
