The Gift of Raw Food

Happy Tuesday, my dear readers!

I found a special video that I'd like to share with all those who know someone suffering with diabetes (and who doesn't?). It was very inspiring to us, because we are seeking to heal AnnaMarie of "incurable" Type I.

We have tried to be high raw (about 80%) for about two years now (she was diagnosed in 2006), with variable success. It's been a little difficult for poor AnnaMarie to transition from potatoes every day (Hey, we live in Idaho, right?), and pasta when she wasn't having potatoes, to lots of vegetables (She wouldn't even eat salad at the beginning, which she's learning to love now). I've seen firsthand a fulfillment of the "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink" proverb! Here is the video, see what you think!

I'll talk more about raw foods in another post (the garage is calling me)-

The Lord bless you today,

Marqueta

  2. Dear Marqueta,

    Thank you for sharing this. I look forward to watching the video. I am so sorry your daughter has diabetes. I am sure the organic raw living food will help her.

    The Lord bless you!

  3. Several years ago, I started reading "The Sugar Buster" and Dr. Atkins Diet Book. It was a real eye opener! This information should be common knowledge, but how surprising that so many people with diabetes are not being told that they are what they eat. Thank you for putting this clip up. It was a great reminder to me.

  6. Thank you everyone, for your comments! I wish everyone could be exposed to this, on tv and in magazines, etc., to counteract some of the brainwashing we get from advertising.
