Green Juice: Can It Be Yummy? I’m in Arizona to Find Out!

I’ve just checked into An Oasis of Healing to study what Dr. Thomas Lodi, M.D., does to help people. One of my readers, Inge, read what we’re doing and wrote about how much she loves Dr. Lodi, who has been helping her. She wasn’t the only one of our readers to write telling us they’ve […]

Creative Health Institute, part 3 of 5

Here’s a video of Ed and me. He makes a living selling processed food, and he came to CHI because his mom paid for it and told him to go. He had no idea what he was getting himself into. I told him, “That’s because if she told you about the wheat grass implant, you […]

Creative Health Institute, part 2 of 5

Here’s a video of our teacher, Madeleine, talking about Rejuvelac, and a great idea for green smoothies—and the “banya” by the Coldwater Creek that is my favorite part of the CHI experience. If ALL you got at CHI was any two of the following things, the experience is well worth the money–and of course, you […]

They can even happen—on a much milder scale—when your engine is very clean because you’ve completely transitioned to a high-raw diet and eat 5% or less processed food and animal proteins.

The Rest of the Story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 2 of 2.

I don’t buy that baloney. (In more ways than one.) If you eat hot dogs and soda on a regular basis, you’re almost certainly spending lots of money on doctor bills.

Jennie: “I want to go back to that raw restaurant”

My friend Jennie was a total junk food addict. Although she’s smart, well read, and has an advanced degree, she was also shockingly ignorant about nutrition (once I wrote about how she thought Jell-O was a food group).

p.s. to yesterday’s blog

I had this phone convo with my dad yesterday: Me: Dad, remember how you sprayed pesticides in your grampa’s cherry orchard when you worked for him, and a few times you got sprayed right in the face with no mask? Dad: Sweetheart, I got sprayed many, many times in the face, not a few. Occasionally […]
