Introduction I spent the long winter of 2007 feeling sad and depressed... and no wonder...eating junky foods and drinking a silly amount of beer, gaining a bunch of weight, and experiencing all sorts of physical and emotional manifestations of pain. I was so ready for this life change! After a long and dark 5 month period, something in me finally said ENOUGH, and that is just what I'd been 'dying' to hear. Through support, determination, and a whole lot of reading and researching, I managed to transition painlessly into healthy living, returning to the (mostly) raw lifestyle I was enjoying before I rudely interrupted myself. I've so quickly shed everything from asthma to anxiety, depression to joint pain...just by eating live, enzyme rich raw foods! I am a firm believer in nutritional healing, and believe our bodies already possess everything we need for glowing health.
