Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

In 1900, 1 in 100 people got cancer.  By the 1960's, it was up to 1 in 20.  Today, the numbers shock my pants off: 1 in THREE women in the US will get cancer, and 1 in TWO men will.  

Regarding heart and vascular disease, the numbers are equally grim: 1 out of TWO men and women will die of heart and vascular disease.

Besides just stealing your health, cancer and heart disease also steal your money.  Even with insurance, long term care and surgeries bankrupt families and leave them with horrible options.

Disease devastates and exhausts families.  It steals away the people you love.  It changes who you are.  It steals your joy and kills your future.

Can there be any ray of hope in light of these horrible odds stacked against us?  The answer, hallelujah, is YES.   

In fact, WE are the only hope.  Only we can save ourselves.  Only we can get the word out that all this suffering is OPTIONAL.  We alone hold the fork, knife and spoon.

In this election year, think of every meal as a vote.  When you eat a high percentage of live food, when you say no to animal products and yes to kale, when you say no to sugar and yes to carrots, you are voting for HEALTH.  

We are the people we've been waiting for.  We must save ourselves, we must spare our families the pain and grief, we must be there for them in sound bodies and minds.  Vote for health with every sip and every bite.

Live long and prosper.  And may the stats be with you!

I had no idea the statistic were so crazy...off the charts. You are right, each bite is our choice, we should make each bite/vote count!

Heather is in 'da house! House of Representatives, 'representin' the real raw way to health and well-being and I vote YES to that! with every meal I am fully celebrating this vibrant life. Many (many) members of my family of origin have experienced the 'C' diagnosis and have made their journey into the next life. So many in fact that whenever I provide intake information for any kind of medical exam (rarely) I kind of get a raised eyebrow.

I was a self-proclaimed vegetarian in my teens, but was not supported in my family. As an adult I have been vegetarian for 24 years and fully raw for 2 years now. I am so grateful for this community and the rich resources that we share. We are shining a light on a new path and it is good!
