Khale, I love your advice-- beautiful. Thank you. I resonate completely with everything you're saying. I'm sitting here listening to some really angelic music-- bell sounds-- while responding to this thread, and the music is so full of love and tenderness, and this is what healing is supposed to be about.

Honey, don't despair-- you just got 'new age blamed,' big time. I'm sorry they did that to you. I have been in the same situation before on a few occasions, and it's bewildering, confrontational and scary. I remember in particular a 'healer' who (having never met us before) came up to my partner, who's blind, and told him that the reason he was blind was because he didn't love his mother, and

Hi pakd4fun, Hey, thank you!-- you just did me a great service with that nice post about my 'honey,' Jonathan. You see, he's blind (has retinitis pigmentosa, the congenital disease), and he doesn't quite know what a magnificent looking guy he is. I just read your message to him and he liked it. It's so much fun being with a guy who looks like a movie star but has the humility and wisdom o

Hi Suvine, We could hang out in the sunshine, make beautiful tropical fruit smoothies and drink our blues away! I like that you accept yourself when you have the blues and don't try to judge or deny-- that's one of the secrets, I think. Just like clouds, sad moods come and go. If we deny them or feel bad about having them, they may hang around indefinitely.

Kate-- Codex Alimentarius is a massive committee of delegates (mostly pharmaceutical reps) representing most of the world's countries, that is creating transnational directives (laws, basically) that will become mandatory for any country that wants to participate in world trade. The Codex directives will supercede our own laws. Most or all of Europe is already under Codex. It eliminates vitam

Hi Kate, This is a subject that I think about a LOT-- thanks for bringing it up. It grieves me to no end to realize that organic farmers are treating the migrant workers who work for them exactly the same way the conventional agri-biz farmers do: abysmally. I've just recently applied for a local garden plot (I live in an apartment, so I can only grow sprouts) so I can grow some of my own

This article is very relevant to raw food lifestyle, and I hope the administrators won't move this to the 'off-topic' area like they did other relevant articles like the one on the die-off of the bees. We need to be talking about these issues, not ignoring them, or we will have to grow all our own food in our backyards in the future. **************************************** How Food Beca

I'm wondering why they consider it off-topic at all. Irradiation is something every vegan raw foodist should be concerned about. Why isn't it valid to talk about that on this board?

That's wonderful-- congratulations! I wish you all the best with your farm. I live in the city on the east coast, but am getting a small plot in one of the local public gardens so that I can grow at least some of my own food, for reasons probably very similar to yours. (That plus the fact that we have probably just about the most expensive food prices in all of the U.S. here.) I can't keep p

Hi Nisolu, I agree with Fresh and Bryan-- depends on a lot of different facts, and where you are in your detox too, no doubt. I sometimes eat a lot of fruit and other times I will eat more vegetables. I just got off a long fast and had almost NO desire for fruit-- I was so surprised! Now I'm eating some fruit again, but vegetables predominate. A good thing to keep in mind is that sometimes

Guys, This is what I've been talking about: America is the #1 force behind CODEX, and this is just a foretaste of what's coming: mandatory pasteruization and/or irradiation of things like produce and nuts, and lots of other nasty, nasty things you don't want to know, but you need to in order to get outraged and fight back. Yes it's horrible, but we've got to face it and DO SOMETHING!!! Please

I've never herad of the raw food diet alleviating cavities unless one ate massive quantities of sugar before they went raw. It's quite common for people transitioning to complain of cavities cropping up.

What keeps me on a fast more than anything else is the knowledge, based on past experience with fasting, that I will be profoundly healthier and I will look and feel much better if I keep fasting. ;-) What also helps is doing my fast (if it's a water fast) at a time when I con't have a lot of obligations and I can rest a lot. What also helps is deliberately pretty much cleaning out my refr

Yes, I had to take tetracyclene once for a tooth abcess while I was raw about 20 years ago, and it was devastating. I didn't feel good; had to really build myself up again after that. I'd never take antibiotics now if I could help it. I will say, though, that my reaction was probably worse than yours will be, because all through my childhood I was given antibiotics over and over again, and by

I remember Dr. Walker said they were caused by an imbalance or lack of minerals and nutrients in the system. How 'bout trying a juice fast and looking up juices specific to your sumptoms? That might help. No doubt stress can be involved, because stress robs us of nutrients.

<I do believe high fruit is good for some. I do believe high fruit is not good for everyone> Rawrr, I agree with you that eating too much fruit can be real bad for some people-- myself included!-- and I support you in what you need to do and finding the percentage of fruit that keeps you healthy. I don't think there is a one-size-fits-all ideal raw diet. Your innate instincts are more

Hi Sunshine! Don't give up on fruit! I think ultimately you'll find you're not in the category of people who can't eat fruit, and you'll find that it's your friend. ;-) However, you can't take Zeolite without drinking MASSIVE amounts of water-- it dehydrates you like crazy. In fact it's undoubtedly very dangerous to do so, as it's a very potent compound. As to the malapsorption/int

Wow, KelBel-- You are right on. I felt a little bad after I wrote a snarky message on this board-- I think it was on this thread too-- a few days ago. We really have to give people the space to speak about things we might not agree with.

This subject is very interesting to me. I currently think-- suspect-- that as we get more and more detoxified and healthy, we can more readily assimilate prana, at which point we need less calories. (Notice I didn't say NO calories-- the only true breatharian I have heard of is Giri Bala.) That's a hypothesis of mine, anyway, and seems to be borne out by the experience of the few successful long

Love the Gandhi quote, Veronique. I'm on day 4 of a water fast, and I'm having similar experiences. Fasting is a wonderful gateway into the inner realms, and the great side effect is that it heals your body and makes you more grounded in the material world at the same time. Thank you for keeping us posted on your progress. ;-)

You might want to cut back on citrus-- too much can cause tooth problems. And getting plenty of greens with your fruit is really beneficial to the teeth. My understanding is that fruits eaten alone don't have so many of the materials our teeth need to stay healthy and mineralized, and greens help because they contain lots of minerals and vitamins.
