athletes and experts quoted about eating plants

I don’t preach about the -isms. I don’t talk about or embrace words like raw foodist, vegetarian, or vegan, even though I do teach to eat a high-raw, mostly-plants diet. I leave it to you to figure out whether you want organic, clean eggs, cheese, milk, or meat as a small (5% or less) part […]

beautiful and young at age 70! three ageless examples show the value of good nutrition!

I often hear people judging the raw vegan movement, or its credibility as a lifestyle, because a particular raw vegan doesn’t look good.  In fact, it is often debilitating health conditions that started the person on the path to raw/vegan in the first place. So they may have a long way to travel out of […]

Vegetarians’ favorite question

My daughter Emma, 16, and I had a convo the other day about how every vegetarian gets sick of the question, “How do you get your protein?” (I bet we hear from some of them here!) I often point those asking that question to my report HERE called “Protein: Are We Deficient? Or Overdosing?” A […]

Libby Goes Vegan

You know I don’t   promote any “isms”–vegetarianism, veganism, raw foodism.  I’m secretly a fan of all those movements. But I don’t adopt them as extremist positions because I think they send most people running for the hills. And I believe that sticking to the idea of eating MORE PLANT FOODS wins more converts. But […]

Oasis of Hope, Tijuana (Contreras Clinic)

Oasis of Hope in Tijuana is inpatient, with all meals served to you. It is very much a hospital—not a medical spa like in Irvine, or a detox retreat like Creative Health Institute or Hippocrates Health Institute. It’s a small hospital, but they have an emergency room, a pharmacy, radiology, the works. The food is […]

Two great recipes and an awesome new ingredient!

If you’re following my cancer travels, I hope you won’t get mixed up. Last month I was at Oasis of HEALING in Arizona, and this month I’ve been studying at Oasis of HOPE—both the Tijuana hospital and the Irvine outpatient clinic run by two docs, Contreras and Connealy. I’m writing some of the high points […]

I love the Pacific Northwest!

We’re just back from a whirlwind tour speaking in Boise, Kennewick, Portland, and Seattle in just over 48 hours! (Photo is in Kennewick.) Besides a stop along the Oregon coast to buy an armload of the most fabulous blueberries that have ever been in my mouth, we SAW nothing and DID nothing besides teach and […]

my last post on the anti-China-Study Mercola newsletter

Related to questions received from yesterday’s post— I don’t know if anyone has critiqued the China Study who isn’t associated with the Weston A. Price Foundation. All the criticism I have read has been. I’m not sure who financed Denise Minger, a 23-year old college student and “professional sock puppeteer” who is paid to write […]
