Customer Reviews

A personal breakthrough! by Carl A. Dixon
I have lived with chronic pain for the last three years. I am old (58:) and very active physically. I have suffered pain that would normally be associated with having severe lower disk problems or maybe a pinched nerve - plus my low back muscles have been very painful. I work out carfully every day. I have had 4 MRI's in the last year plus a bone scane. I have seen a Neuro Surgeon, chiropracter(s), Orthopedic surgeon, family doctor, spinal surgeon and two physio thearapists. All of them have been helpful in some ways but no one can really help me or tell me what my problem is. My disks are fine and I have no pinched nerves. I purchased this book along with Framework. I read 3 Minutes 1st and started the exercises. I am completely pain free! I still find it hard to believe. It is over three weeks and I awake every morning wondering if my pain is back. I do the exercise for atheletes and have added a lower back exercise plus one for elbows. The total time is 4 1/2 minutes. I should mention I always warm up on my bike 1st so my muscles are able to accept any stretching. Plus the reading of FrameWork has helped in my weight workout. I have already recommended this to a friend and he is having similar results. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star report is that I believe he should have said more about warming up 1st and the book would be as good as FrameWork if he had added to the content to help those of us who are very athletically fit. But it is a great book and you will not regret purchasing it.

This book made me a believer by Madeline Weinstein
Seven months ago I experienced a very painful episode with my left knee. I was not aware of any causative event, but suddenly I could barely walk. I tried every treatment and product imaginable. I had an MRI, consulted two orthopedic surgeons, and briefly considered surgery as my only option. This was after spending hendreds of dollars on products (knee braces, heat and cold wraps, herbs, ointments, etc.), and trying acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, and a host of other therapies. I was unable to exercise, gained weight, and began scanning Modern Maturity magazine for walking aids! Then, my daughters gave me a copy of the book, "3 Minutes to a Pain-Free Life", and I started to do the six therapeutic movements outlined in the book. I've been doing them daily now for a month and I have regained considerable mobility. I was able to start an exercise program and I'm amazed that I can now walk and exercise without pain. I even had my back go out on me, and I immediately did the specific stretches the book recommended. By the second day I was able to stand tall and move without debilitating pain. Another bonus of the book is that it is a highly readable layman's text of Anatomy and Physiology. I learned a lot about my body in the process of healing it. I plan to buy this book for everyone I know who struggles with chronic pain.

Good advice despite the over-hyped title. by Caponsacchi
Hardly a "revolutionary" program for those who have read anything about the muscular-skeletal structure of the human body, the interrelations of muscles and joints, and the importance of keeping the muscles stretched. But the author does offer an inviting, simple, and feasible set of six exercises which, if done religiously every day, 30 seconds per exercise, can prevent further abuses and damage (the title's apparent promise of restoration or a "cure" seems a bit exaggerated). Compared to the impossibly long list of tedious, often painful and exhausting exercises given me by my PT, Dr. Weisberg's program is cause for a sigh of relief.

Well over half of the book is devoted to anatomical discussions, motivational talk, and testimonials rather than the program itself. The heart of Dr. Weisberg's advice is the familiar "use it or lose it." The author practically demonizes the chair and the unnatural "C" shape that it encourages. The idea is to align the body to its natural center of gravity, producing the "S" curve. Anyone who finds it excruciating if not impossible to assume the squat position (maintaining balance on the heels is the challenge) or the split (only in my dreams) may be frustrated by the book's program of exercises. Still, anyone should benefit from these 6 exercises, even if some are not implemented to perfection (I'm structurally incapable of bending over and touching my toes--unless permitted to bend my knees).

So far, so good by Daisy
My problem: hip bursitis and piriformis syndrome. I'm three days into the stretches that this book recommends. Already I've received more pain relief than I ever got from anything I tried before, including physical therapy, acupuncture and a cortisone injection. I'm very hopeful that I will soon be pain-free.

Update: five months later, my piriformis syndrome is very much under control. I'm back to working out on a stair-climber, back to long walks with the dog, back to being able to sleep w/o pain killers. I still get twinges of pain, and must continue the stretches, but I'm so much better.

How Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods and Ionized Water Can Make You Healthier than You Have Ever Imagined In 90 Days or Less.

The Seven Components of Natural Health

By Bob McCauley

With a Foreword by Peter Ragnar and Introduction by Dr. Gabriel Cousens

2nd Edition, November 2011
Paperback, 232 pages

"This book is a winner." Gabriel Cousins

Health books require medical disclaimers because if you don't provide them you become liable in every way. But I don't have any problem stating that I know almost nothing about medicine and have no formal training in the health field. But then, what does it take to understand how to Achieve Great Health, a doctorate or a few letters behind your name? More than anything it takes understanding through experience and that is what I have done. These are simply my observations about how I became healthy. Anyway, medical disclaimers are necessary so here is mine:

This book is not intended in any way to serve as a replacement for professional medical advice. Rather, it is meant to demonstrate that aging can be slowed and even reversed and that great health is achieved when the most fundamental nutritional needs of the human body are met. If you feel the need, always consult a doctor or another medical professional when you have an illness or disease of any kind. We admit to knowing little if anything about medicine and therefore would never offer medical advice to anyone for any reason. Medicine is in one direction, health is in the other. The author offers health advice that is his personal opinion only.


What if you could tap the treasures of health wisdom from the world's experts? Imagine if you could ask them anything! Yes, anything and everything about how you could Achieve Great Health. Now, wait! This is more than just getting rid of diseases like cancer, heart problems, diabetes, arthritis, stroke, and silly ailments like the flu. This is about Achieving Great Health!

Very few people have ever had that privilege. My friend, Bob McCauley, is one of those rare people. As a talk show interviewer he has asked the world's experts everything you ever wanted to know about health.

After years of testing, using his own body as the laboratory and observing the results, Robert discovered the hidden formula. So, not only do you have a distillation of the Greatest Minds of Natural Healing, you have it in a simple form that you can use. Yes, you can Achieve Great Health in 90 days or less!

I certainly, don't mean to imply that all these great teachers agree on every point. Even Robert and I have a minor difference or two. But, what is presented within these pages is so important to your personal health that it's vital for you to get started today.

I feel so strongly that you will Achieve Great Health by following my friend's advice that I jumped at the humbling opportunity to write this forward. Please, don't let another minute pass without making a decision to Achieve Great Health.

With you in Achieving Great Health, Peter Ragnar


Achieving Great Health in 90 Days or less is one of the most inspiring live food and health book primers that I have seen. Bob McCauley distinctly understands the mystery of creating optimal vibrant health. He shares it through the medium of his own experience, which is the real foundation of healing.

He has isolated the fundamentals of health: becoming alkaline, raw foods, the use of super foods Spirulina and Chlorella, adequate hydration and ionized water, probiotics, exercise, and a positive mental attitude.

The power of healing is about the broad strokes, rather than the details or obsessing about health. This book is excellent for those making the transition into live foods. It helps people wake up into the practical reality of living a live food lifestyle. His discussion of live foods and the use of chlorella and Spirulina is one of the best I have seen. I personally also use the E3Live in addition to the other algae. The E3Live has the much needed long chain omega 3 DHA and EPA which is not available in the vegetarian world except for golden algae for DHA and purslane for EPA. It also stimulates stem cell production, and has an intensity of neurotransmitter precursors, which makes it particularly powerful for enhancing brain function.

Bob has a wonderful way with words to present the issues people face when they choose to be healthy. “Everyday when we awake, we do one of two things: improve our health or encourage disease.” The power of his health wisdom comes from his direct health experimentation over the years as well as from his role as a health talk show interviewer, which allowed him to tap into the wisdom of many of the worlds leading experts. With his background as a layperson, he as been able to beautifully distill this wisdom down into some simple principles that allow them to be grasped by the general public. The basic principle is that when we flow with nature and follow the natural laws the tendency toward disease will diminish. According to Bob, optimal health is the point where the body is totally regenerating itself, each organ is functioning to capacity, and biological aging has stopped or reversed. Disease cannot take root in a vibrantly health body and mind. A high functioning body in which the energy is freely flowing creates the preconditions for the light of the Divine to awaken.

I appreciate this book so much because he has summed up how to create high level wellness in one sentence and then simply, but eloquently takes the rest of the book to explain this one message. As he unfolds his message, we are treated to a delightful sharing of practical tips and insightful quotes that he has gathered over the years. He has simplified his approach into six components, which naturally detoxify and alkalize the body.

1. Hydrate the body

2. Introduce Spirulina and chlorella into your diet

3. Introduce probiotics

4. Introduce raw foods and build slowly until one reaches 100% raw

5. Minerals & Our Health

6. Daily exercise

7. Develop a positive mental attitude

I highly recommend this book to anyone starting out on the journey to health and look forward to carrying it in our Awakened Living Shoppe at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. This book, like Bob McCauley, is a winner.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens, MD, MD (H)


“Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”  ~ Mark Twain

If you are sick it is because you allow yourself to remain sick. By that I mean that the human body is capable of curing itself of any disease. Unless you are terminally ill, the average person can Achieve Great Health in 90 days or less. In most cases, even those diagnosed as “terminally ill” can turn their health around in several months if they are determined to live at any cost.

We get sick and prematurely age ourselves by turning our bodies acidic. We turn ourselves acid by living on a primarily cooked-food diet, not properly hydrating our body, consuming substances such as processed foods that barely resemble anything nutritious, while at the same time doing almost nothing to alkalize ourselves. When we become acidic we are wide open to disease of any and all kinds. If we are sick, our bodies are acidic. If we are seriously ill, our body pH is dramatically lower than it ought to be. This is a dangerous, sometimes life-threatening situation that cannot be ignored. But it can easily be remedied if we become resolute about changing our health.

The protocol for permanently ridding the body of disease and living in true health is quite simple. We should only consume Spirulina and Chlorella , Raw Foods , Ionized Water and probiotics. We must also exercise regularly and maintain a positive mental attitude . Health is as simple as that. The following pages describe exactly how we can Achieve Great Health in only a few months time. This protocol can be followed by anyone, regardless of your current health situation. The better shape you are in, the easier it will be. All it takes is the desire to do so and the determination to see it through.

I have not by any means attempted to answer every question about health in this book, nor cover every conceivable health topic. Rather, this book paints broad strokes about how we can be as healthy as we can possibly be. Although the details of how the body actually works are nice to know, it certainly is not necessary if we only want to be healthy. The details are provided merely to support the arguments I pose in this book. How many of us would drive if we had to learn to dissemble and repair a car? Mechanics would be our chauffeurs if that were the case.

To be healthy, we only need to know what belongs in the body and what does not. Once we have implemented the simple lessons outlined in this book, true health will most certainly follow.


“For most men life is a search for the proper manila envelope in which to get themselves filed.” ~ Clifton Fadiman
When I wrote my first book, Confessions of a Body Builder, Rejuvenating the Body with Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods and Ionized Water (COABB), I was aware that I had not said everything about health I wanted or needed to. But I knew I had laid the foundation for the true road to Great Health. What I want to accomplish with this book is a further exploration of exactly what we need to do to Achieve Great Health, Perfect Health. The premise of writing this book was that I wanted nothing more than to seek the truth about how to be healthy; the following pages describe what I found.

Profound lifestyle changes are not easily implemented and that is what's required. Most of us are fundamentally resistant to change even though it is change that keeps us vital and invigorated, more than we ever realize.

I wrote this book for everyone, especially the average person who lives on a meat and potato, junk-food, fast-food, processed-food diet or perhaps likes to barbecue on the weekends. Many of us don't realize that the world of true health even exists, that it actually is a place you can take your life to if you chose. True health is found in the raw , not cooked world of food, and it is one seldom visited by most people.

As for the health conscious community at large, this book will make perfect sense to most of them because their minds are already open to new possibilities. Everyday when we wake, we do one of two things: improve our health or encourage disease. The choice is always our own.

Many questions have arisen about my health protocol since writing COABB and I have tried to answer them in this book. One of the most common questions has been: If I go with this protocol, how long will it take till I am healthy? The answer is 90 days or less, depending on how badly you want to be healthy. This can be achieved regardless of how sick you may be at the moment, short of being rived with some disease that has placed you at death's door. If you do not properly hydrate, detoxify and alkalize your body, you will never be healthy. It is simply impossible. Only algae, raw foods and Ionized Water can achieve this quickly, especially if you are an adult with a lifetime of accumulated toxic waste in your body that has completely acidified it.

What I mean by Great Health is robust health, the kind of health that only a few of us will ever experience. Simply moving to a Raw-food Diet will allow your body to remain healthy. But without the incredible rejuvenating, body-building nutrients of Spirulina and Chlorella, along with consuming Ionized Water and Probiotics , exercising daily and developing a Positive Mental Attitude, Great Heath is not possible.

This book is the culmination of my knowledge and experience with human health and how to get there. I am not a formally trained medical, health or nutritional professional in any way. What I know of health is what I have read, experienced and spoken with others about. I offer in these pages no medical advice, but rather guidance and ruminations about health. I know almost nothing about medicine because medicine does not lead to health. This book is essentially one person's opinion, that of my own. However, I challenge anyone to find flaw with the basic tenets of my health philosophy, which is that water and raw foods rule .

My Journey to Perfect Health

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” ~ Robert Frost

I got my first warning sign that I was heading for physical ruin in 1992 after a stressful move from New Jersey to Michigan . I became quite ill over a 12 hour period and had to be taken to the hospital. It was likely a kidney or gall stone, but they never determined exactly what it was. It happened again one year later. I was on the road to the demise of my health. I was a lacto-vegetarian; I consumed dairy products , but no meat at all. I understand now that I was destroying my body with a cooked-food diet that was not providing me with any rejuvenating nutrients and was slowly acidifying every inch of me. I was dying prematurely as does everyone who lives on a cooked-food diet.

Most people don't make it to 50 before they're on some kind of medication, which is the first white flag they throw up as they surrender themselves, piece by piece, to disease, premature aging and unnatural death. Once you submit yourself to medicine, medical procedures, surgery and allopathic doctors, you are giving up and allowing yourself to become a health lemming. Your friends and family have diseases just like yours; thus you assume that disease is an inevitable part of life. Everyone else eats cooked foods, goes to a doctor and gets pills, so if you don't something must be wrong with you.

The truth I have discovered over the last eight years is that when you flow with nature and do the things that nature demands of all living things, disease does not exist and the idea of living a “long life” of only 90 years will disappear. Science tells us that the human body is built to live at least 120 – 150 years, yet it is rare for anyone to reach that age. If we can indeed rejuvenate ourselves at a cellular level, meaning that our cells are constantly provided with sufficient water and nutrients, the body itself can theoretically live indefinitely. There are many intriguing notions and possibilities in considering this principle. I will leave it to you to speculate on what those possibilities could mean for you, but the conventional notion of a lifespan will seem silly to you by the time you've finished reading this book.

I am in my forties and have the body I had in my twenties. I can run like I did when I was in high school. I have gotten stronger and more limber since moving to this health protocol . I have more stamina and endurance than anyone I know who is my age or older. I look like a person ought to look for my age, i.e. youthful, not what we are accustomed to seeing in people my age. All these things are quite special, but I am not special. Anyone can do what I am doing. Anyone can take their life to the next level and beyond. Anyone can stop putting walls in their path if they chose to.

Changing your life in a fundamental way begins with self respect. If you have that, you have the intelligence and integrity to realize that our many appetites put us in a painful, early grave and we only cheat ourselves out of God 's most precious gift, our health and therefore our lives.

The cure for all disease is found at your local supermarket in the produce section. The cure for any disease will never be found in a laboratory and that is hard to accept because science has always dazzled us; and for many has become the answer to all our problems. Three things must be accomplished if we expect to cure ourselves of any disease. We must hydrate, alkalize and detoxify the body. It is the recurrent theme of this book because it is the recurrent theme of health. This book will tell you exactly how to accomplish this so that regardless of what disease you may have, you can rid it from your body.

Attaining my current level of health has been difficult, although I can hardly begin to describe to you how wonderful I feel each day. I have come far, but my journey to perfect health continues because there are always areas of our lives we can improve on. If you have not heard of the raw food lifestyle, then come with me and discover the incredible world of fresh foods and raw dishes that will at first seem alien to you, but will one day become your close friends. Open your heart and hear the message of perfect health that nature offers us. You will not be disappointed with the results.

Perfect health is the point when the body is totally regenerating itself every moment, when biological aging has stopped completely and each organ of the body is functioning to its capacity. Few of us ever truly achieve this. I am not there yet and still have far to go. But considering where I was and how I felt then compared to how I feel now, this sure feels like perfect health. I can't wait to experience the real thing.

Summaries of Achieving Great Health

Raw Food Summary
Book Summary

Water Summary

“Water is a colorless liquid that enables us to see the colors of the rainbow. It has no form but gives form to everything. It is billions of years old but can constantly rejuvenate itself. It is at the beginning and end of every cycle of life and history. It provides a constant interchange between the Earth and all the other planets in the cosmos. Every drop is a microcosm of the universe, carrying information from ancient eras and from worlds that we cannot yet understand. It is a liquid, a solid and a vapor. It is everywhere and in everything. It holds the key to our health, and we hold the key to the health of water.”~ Charlie Ryrie

You need to hydrate your body because there is nothing more important regarding human health than a properly hydrated body, which translates into sufficiently hydrated cells throughout the body. If the body's cells are not healthy, we cannot be healthy. Cellular health equals human health.

Ionized Water has four qualities that are perfect for the body's health: Antioxidant , Alkalinity, Hydration and Detoxification. Start slowly and increase the potency of the Ionized Water you consume until you are drinking 1.5 – 2 gallons per day. Drink it all day except around mealtime. An extra trip or two to the bathroom is an extraordinarily cheap price to pay for your most precious possession: your health. You are the only person who can consume enough water to start on the road back to the health you were born with, that which God intended you to have, not the body you have transformed it into from a lifetime of eating primarily dead foods that are acidic, dehydrating and void of any rejuvenating properties.

Hydration is the first step toward reversing chronic illnesses and strengthening the immune system . It is our first defense against disease and the very keystone of human health.

There is a certain calm and stillness that only water offers. It is impossible to sit by tranquil waters and not feel at peace. Herman Melville mused that “ Meditation and water are wedded for ever.” He could not have been more right. We came from the sea.

Spirulina and Chlorella Summary

“They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea.” ~ Sir Francis Bacon

The most powerful foods on earth are Spirulina Pacifica and Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. They compliment one another in many ways because they are completely different foods with different nutrients. Spirulina is an extremely pure food, 95% digestible, extremely high in the Vitamin B-complex, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids such as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is excellent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or bursitis. Spirulina is an excellent food to consume before a workout because of the explosive energy it provides to the body.

Chlorella has incredible anti-cancer properties. Its unique fiber is great for the digestion, as well as heavy metal and synthetic toxin removal. It has large amounts of nucleic acids (RNA/DNA ), which, along with amino acids (protein), are the building blocks of our cells. Chlorella can even be used topically on cuts, scrapes, infections, even serious wounds, as can Spirulina .

The second step in Achieving Great Health is to add these superfoods to your diet. Start slowly, gradually increasing them until you reach a dosage of at least eight grams of each daily. (See Appendix: Spirulina, Chlorella & Water Dosages .) You can never consume too much Spirulina and Chlorella as long as they are raw and their enzymes are intact. As you increase your dosage, gradually reduce your intake of protein from traditional sources, such as meat , fish, eggs, soy and dairy products . Algae is best consumed with each meal because of its high protein content, the highest percentage of any foods known with 18 different amino acids that are in the proper ratio to one another. Protein must be consumed with everything you eat for proper digestion and nutrient absorption. Most vegetarians lack sufficient protein in their diet.

Great Health will be nearly impossible to achieve without these two powerful whole foods at the center of your diet.

Raw Food Summary

"Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go."  - William Feather

Only a raw foodist has the ability to Achieve Great Health, perfect health, the kind of health most people only dream of. If you remain on a cooked-food diet, you will never truly be healthy even though the outward symptoms of disease may not manifest themselves for years to come. Disease always resides in the body of the cooked foodist whether the symptoms are there or not.

Everyone wants to be healthy. No one wants to be sick or even divulge they ever get sick. Sadly, most will remain sick because of their refusal to leave the cooked-food world behind and start putting in their body what naturally belongs in it, that which can only make them healthy. Only what comes from nature will ever make us healthy. There is no substitute for nature because it is God 's ever-moving hand. And no matter what man creates to try and make himself healthy, it will only end in failure. God's temple can only be properly served and maintained by the raw foods that are produced by God's creation, that which we call nature .

Book Summary

“The credit belongs to those people who are actually in the arena . . who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions to a worthy cause; who at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."~ Theodore Roosevelt

The body can cure itself of any disease. If you are sick it is because you allow yourself to remain sick. Hydration, alkalization and detoxification are the three keys to preventing and curing us of any disease. Nothing is more important to the body than water and there is no better water for the human body than Ionized Water . It is a powerful antioxidant, as well as extremely alkalizing, hydrating and detoxifying. Fasting with water is the healthiest thing we can do for the body.

Spirulina and Chlorella are the two most powerful whole foods in the world. They are perfect proteins and have the broadest array of nutrients of any foods. We should replace our traditional animal protein sources, meat , fish, eggs and dairy with these two nutraceuticals, which, like all raw foods, provide the body with the proper nutrition so the body can heal itself.

Probiotics ( acidophilus and bifidus ) are friendly bacteria that help the body assimilate nutrients and keep the digestive tract clean and alkalized. They are crucial to human health and should be consumed with everything we eat.

All cooked foods are acidic, poisonous and addictive. We eat them because we like their taste and because we have been conditioned all our lives to believe they are healthy for us. Raw foods are alkaline and rejuvenate the body by providing the body with nutrients that have not been either destroyed or chemically altered by cooking. Cooking is the greatest destroyer of our health. Raw foods contain enzymes which are responsible for every movement, action or thought of the human body and mind. Without enzymes, life would not be possible.

Regular vigorous exercise is essential if we wish to achieve robust health. We should work each of our 650 muscles every day. Cultivating a positive mental attitude is also critical to our health. Self-doubt can destroy your efforts with the force of split atoms. Have faith in yourself and what you can achieve and a hero that others will want to follow will appear in your mirror one day. Great Health gives us confidence, vigor, purpose and even more importantly it gives us hope.

Advice On Dying: And Living Well by Taming the Mind

By Dalai Lama XIV
Paperback, 240pages
Publication date: 6 May 2004

In this ground-breaking book, the Dalai Lama advises us to gain familiarity with the process and practices of death so that, when we are physically weak, our minds can still be focussed in the right direction, and in the right manner. Advice on Dying cautions us not to fall under the influence of the mistaken belief of permanence. We should not think that we have a lot of time in this life, because there is a great danger of wasting our lives in procrastination. He suggests we meditate on our lives, and on the indefiniteness of the time of death. For, though the time of our death is uncertain, death itself is certain...In this empowering and positive book, His Holiness brings new inspiration to a subject that we, in the West, have long ignored to our detriment. It is only by taming our minds and fully facing the end of our lives, that we can fully live in the present moment.

Amazing Technical Manual on Physical and Spiritual Reality of Death and Living a Better Life by Stephen Thomas
Did you know that Tibetan Buddhism is tantric? That is just one of the revelations of this book. It is obvious that, through the ages, the meditation masters have been observing the physical symptons of death and dying. This book explains the physical symptoms one experiences at each stage of the process of dying, described in a thick context of a metaphor of energies and levels of mind. (If you are a spiritual mystic, you'll love this! I must admit, I have had to read it a couple of times to get my Western mind to surrender -- but the journey is worth the concentration.) When I get to my death bead, instead of allowing the people around me to mourn, I have written instructions for my family to have someone read this book to me (over and over if I last that long) -- whether I'm apparently conscious or not (and I will invite the others to read Hesse's Siddhartha and go home and forgive someone they hate). Along with physical symptons of dying, this book details the journey of the mind and consciousness as the traveler experiences the only event we are all born to experience. Many thanks to the Dalai Lama and his teachers.

Scarce information presented clearly and concisely. by Islander
This particular text contains very hard to find information on the inner structure, presented in a clear, straightforward, concise and comprehensive manner: Included are descriptions of the symbols for, and the actions of, the various levels of consciousness, chakras, channels and winds and the results of prana movement through the body. This information is just not easily findable or accessible elsewhere in any one place. You could even use this information to accurately decipher ancient teaching thankas.

His Holiness has written many books and there is, of necessity I think, a great deal of similar information overlap amongst them, however he always manages to insert into each work some truly unique gem of information not readily found elsewhere. It's rather like the old children's visual game of Find The Precious Objects Hidden Somewhere In This Picture. These unique additions in the midst of familiar territory are tiny hints at the profound depth of wisdom inherent in this great teacher. Don't fret over this book's details.

Read it once through whether or not you like it, then just be patient and go back, and read it again, and yet again, and eventually, you will find it easy.

Profound, Moving and Touching by Matthew Goddard
I would recommend this book to everyone. The title is spot on, as it is rooted in the experience and wisdom of generations of human beings before us who have cultivated mindfullness and patience at the highest level.

Through understanding the processes and phenomenon involved in dying, we are thereby more equipped to face our own departure with equanimity, and grace, rather than clinging to "this life" or "this body".

Be assured that this body that you have lovingly cared for with food, clothing, shelter and other amenities of this life, will pass away, and abandon you at the time of death. It would be wise therefore to cultivate a sense of impermanence so that one might pass gracefully, without suffering or lamenting.

Through embracing death as an inevitable part of life, we cultivate compassion, empathy, and equanimity and thereby enable ourselves to live a better life.

Alkalize or Die

  • Description

By Dr Theodoore A Baroody, Jr

Paperback: 242 pages

This powerful book carries an important message that can benefit everyone—a message destined to revolutionize health care of the future with one simple principle—ALKALIZE YOURSELF!

The world is facing the largest health crisis in recorded history. Dr. Baroody's comprehensive research and clinical findings indicate that illness and disease are directly linked to over-acidity in the system. The polluted air we breathe, the chemicalised food and water we ingest are just part of the problem. Stress on all levels—physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual cause the body to overproduce acid wastes, upsetting our delicate alkaline/acid balance.

By following the guidelines in this book you can evaluate your alkaline/acid situation, determine a course of correction, and achieve a high level of vitality and strength.


    * Clear definitions of alkaline and acid.
    * What causes tissue acid wastes.
    * Why hydrochloric acid is good for you and other acids are not.
    * The alkaline needs of glands and organs.
    * The truth about contagious diseases.
    * How to prevent acid-related maladies that accelerate ageing.

Learn how to:

    * Choose foods that create alkalinity.
    * Prepare alkaline-forming meals using the 21 day meal planner.
    * Take nutritional supplements for proper alkaline/acid balance.
    * Use the new "super foods" for building alkalinity.
    * Neutralize any type of stress.

Reap the rewards of superior health by adopting the alkaline way of life!


Acidosis is the basic foundation of all disease. We need to understand the simple process of alkalizing our body and the important role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining our overall health. Our glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system.
The Impact Of Acidosis On Your Organs:

The heart is one of the most alkaline-dependent organs in the body. It is partly enervated by the vagus nerve which functions best in an alkaline environment. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood of proper oxygenation and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.
Digestive difficulties (belching, bloating, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, regurgitation, hiccups, lack or limitation of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic in children) may indicate vagus nerve problems and possible hiatus hernia syndrome, which can produce acid residue throughout the system. Hiatus hernia can quickly reduce necessary hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Without proper hydrochloric acid breakdown of foods, the foods become too acidic.
The liver has over three hundred functions, including processing acid toxins from the blood and producing numerous alkaline enzymes for the system and is your first line of defense against any poisons. All the nourishment obtained through the gastrointestinal tract enters the blood by way of the liver. The load on the liver is much heavier when acid waste products are constantly floating in the blood. If the liver becomes too congested with protein acid wastes, death is imminent.
The pancreas is highly dependent on correct alkaline diet. All aspects of pancreatic function reduce excess acidity and regulate blood sugar balance. To have proper blood sugar balance, you must maintain a primarily alkaline-forming diet.
Small Intestines
The Peyer's Patches, in the upper portion of the small intestines are crucial to life. They are essential for proper assimilation of food and producing lymphocytes for the lymphatic system's wide ranging nodal network. They also produce large amounts of the enzyme "chyle", which is a major alkalizing substance. The uninterrupted flow of chyle into the system is crucial. Too much acid waste production from acid-forming foods is a great burden on the Peyer's Patches, which lessens the production of chyle.
In an adult, about 1 liter of blood per minute passes through the kidneys. By executing their primary duty, the kidneys keep the blood alkaline and extract acid. Kidneys that are over-stressed with too much acidity create kidney stones, which are composed of waste acid cells and mineral salts that have become gummed together in a waste acid substance. Therefore, by reducing acid-forming products from entering the body, the chances are better that you can avoid this painful condition.
The colon must be kept clean of accumulated acid wastes. Poisons collect on the colon walls and in cases of diarrhea or constipation will harden and reabsorb into the bloodstream. Good bowel action (complete elimination) must be done at least 2 times per day.
Lymphatic System
There are 600-700 lymph glands in the body. Lymph fluid carries nutrition to the cells and removes acid waste products. Lymph fluid flows best in an alkaline environment. When the body is overly acidic, it slows, creating one of the most chronic, long-term, life-threatening situations. Gradually, the lymph dries and begins to form very tiny to very large adhesions throughout the tissues. These adhesions can interfere not only with lymph fluid but with blood flow as well. Hindered lymph flow increases tissue acid storage. Not drinking enough purified water will also slow the lymph. Waste products from foods that are not properly digested are reabsorbed into general circulation via the lymphatic ducts of the small intestine. In addition, bowel movements that do not completely clear the body of its daily poisons are also reabsorbed.

How Negative Emotions Create Acidity:
Have you ever been so upset with someone or something that you get an upset stomach? All negative emotions create an acidic environment. Have you ever heard anyone say you are letting your problems "eat away at you" or "get the best of you"?
Fear is the underlining cause of most disease. It will undermine your life and your health. Fear causes anger. Anger causes hate. Hate will consume you with continual suffering. Love and understanding cleanse and heal the body creating an alkaline environment within you.
What Can You Do?

1. Exercise
Moderate exercise is alkalizing to the body. Excessive exercise (past the point of exhaustion) can create an acidic problem due to lactic acid buildup. People who are acidic usually feel worse from exercise because their detoxification organs are not working properly due to excessive acid in the tissues. Yet without exercise, acid and toxin buildup are likely.
2. Quality Air
As the saying goes - "every step you take, every breath you take ...".
If your environment is polluted with chemicals, dust, smoke, pet dander, mold, micro-organisms, then much of your energy reserve will go just in detoxifying. Today, even in the forest and near the ocean, the amount of negative ions are much lower than they were only a few decades ago. Also, since we sealed buildings to conserve energy and started making our homes and furnishings with synthetic materials, the number of cases of asthma and chronic fatigue have risen dramatically.
3. Food Cobining
Food combining is key to creating an alkaline environment because when you combine properly you reduce putrefaction in the body creating a more alkaline condition.
4. Alkalising Dietary Supplementation
When you purchase supplements you must ask yourself what your goal is and will these supplements actually help alkalize and remove acid from your body. Green drinks are very helpful in filtering out toxins and acidity in the body.
5. Alkaline Diet
Eating an alkaline diet is very powerful in making everything else work better. In general, it is important to eat a diet that contains both acidic and alkalizing foods. People vary, but for most, the ideal diet is 75 percent alkalizing and 25 percent acidifying (foods by volume).

Are You the One for ME?: Knowing Who's Right & Avoiding Who's Wrong

By Barbara DeAngelis
Paperback, 448pages
Publication date: 1 June 1994

Finally--the book you've been waiting for to help you find and keep the right partner and make love last. Best-selling author and renowned relationship expert Barbara De Angelis reveals everything you need to know about compatibility and shows you how to create the fulfilling relationship you deserve whether you are-
- Married, and wondering if you could be happier.
- Single, and wondering how to avoid another wrong partner.
- In love, and wondering whether your partner is the right one for you.
With powerful advice and groundbreaking techniques that have helped thousands of people transform their lives, Dr. De Angelis will show you the formula for creating love that lasts, and help you to understand yourself and the one you love as you never have before. Discover:
- How to avoid making the biggest mistakes in love.
- The six essential qualities to look for in a mate.
- How to spot fatal flaws in a partner.
- How to create the sexual chemistry you want.
- The compatibility formula to make your relationship work.


The bestselling author of Secrets of Men Every Woman Should Know (1990) and How to Make Love All the Time (1987) now dissects bad love choices. Quizzes, lists, and anecdotes render De Angelis's sensible material in easy-to-swallow morsels. Early on, readers are asked to make lists of past lovers' worst qualities and then to write a want ad for a partner, highlighting the common themes (``WANTED: Self- absorbed, damaged loser who has lots of potential and is doing nothing with it....''); and possible roots for these perverse attractions in the childhood family experience are then explored. Readers count off ``the seven wrong reasons to be in a relationship'' (from ``sexual hunger'' to ``emotional or spiritual emptiness''); ``nine fatal flaws to watch out for in a partner'' (addiction, control-freak tendencies, sexual dysfunction); seven compatibility time-bombs, etc. Although the majority of the text deals with negatives, going on the theory that recognizing self- destructive habits is the major step toward overcoming them, De Angelis comments briefly on the attitudes and flexibility necessary for change. Those unsure of whether to commit may value the elaborate self-test offered here, leading to a numerical assessment of compatibility. Given a tolerance for lists and comfort with an approach that precludes subtlety, readers with histories of unhappy relationships may gain insight from this solid, well-organized advice. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

If you're not open to change, forget this book... by Gwenevere
This book is a wonderful exercise in learning about yourself and why you choose the partners you choose. After my last unsatisfying two-year relationship fizzled, I took the responsibility to figure out what what I was doing to attract all the wrong men (i.e., giving so much for so little return). Initially, after the break-up I spent a year dating without a "guide" thinking I just needed to meet the right one -- but how are you supposed to meet the right one when you don't know who the right one is? Just wanting someone faithful and honest is not enough to guide you. During that time, I found Dr. De Angelis' book and started doing the the different exercises. By the time I read the book and did the exercises, I more or less had a list of traits I NEEDED in a man (things I wasn't willing to compromise on). It was a painful process to realize the man I thought I loved before was so fundamentally wrong for me. I wanted to try and read into his bad behavior that he really care and that Dr. De Angelis was a multi-divorced individual who couldn't possibly be a role-model-and-what-did-she-know-anyway?? I made excuses so I could justify to myself to stay in this bad relationship. Well, fast forward nine years: I have been with the same man continuously for almost eight years and have been married for nearly three years. By the time I met my husband I knew exactly what I was looking for, and lo and behold if he didn't hit every single mark on the list. This isn't to say we didn't have problems, because we certainly have, but I entered into this relationship knowing that I had someone willing to work as hard as I was to make our relationship work. And for once I have a man who makes our relationship Priority One (above work, family and even kids) because we both know that if our relationship isn't strong we can't help anyone else. For those out there with a negative attitude about this book -- and they were mostly from people already in bad relationships -- I just want to say, the point of this book is to create an awareness of the common warning signs of a bad relationship so you don't get into one to begin with. Too late for some, I guess.

One of the better popular titles that is out there.... by Patrick D. Goonan
This is a good book with lots of practical advise, useful exercises and thought provoking material. It invites you to look at your patterns in relationships and provides good guidelines for avoiding unhealthy people and situations.

I particularly liked the section in this book on the importance of sexual chemistry. This section also includes a useful quiz for determining how much sexual chemistry you have with a partner. This may sound unnecessary, however, this particular quiz goes beyond mere sexual attraction and includes things that reveal sexual connection in the deepest sense of the word.

I don't necessarily agree with everything Barbara De Angelis says, but there is certainly a hefty amount of wisdom between the pages of this book. She is not just telling people what they want to hear either. This makes this title more than just another "feel good" self-help book on relationship.

A journey from heartbreak to self-understanding by A Customer
Although I have read a lot of self-help books, I usually scanned them for content, assumed I had mastered them, and put them away. I possess an MSW degree, and I am a writer who specializes in mental health issues, so I always thought that I "knew it all" when it came to understanding the dynamics of relationships. I thought I had figured out how and why I messed up my marriage, and where I had gone wrong with other relationships. Boy, was I mistaken! I had not even begun to fathom the patterns and complexities that led me to make so many poor decisions about men. This book helped me to put these issues into new perspective. I did all the exercises in the book meticulously, and read it thoroughly. It opened my eyes to things about myself I was unwilling to face, or that had simply escaped my attention. I have already avoided entering into some problematic relationships because I'm now aware of the "signals" that troubled men send out, and what these signals appeal to in me. I think I'm ready for a healthy relationship, and will know how to recognize one when it comes along.

Beautiful On Raw - Uncooked Creations

  • Description
By Tonya Zavasta

Paperback - 363 pages

Beautiful on Raw is the sequel to Tonya Zavasta's Your Right to Be Beautiful, which was nominated for 2004 Health Book of the Year by ForeWord magazine.

Beauty Is as Beauty Eats...

Discover a natural way of eating that can dramatically improve your appearance and your life!

Frustrated with costly, invasive or ineffective ways of improving your appearance?

In her eye-opening first book, Your Right to Be Beautiful, author Tonya Zavasta shared the natural way she helped herself become noticeably more attractive. How? With the raw food lifestyle.

Now with her new book, Beautiful on Raw, Tonya responds to the two questions most often raised by her enthusiastic readers: "Can you tell us about other women who achieved the same remarkable results? and "Where can we find recipes to help us make this transition?"

In Beautiful On Raw, you will read about the experiences of Tonya and 10 other women, ages 35 to 65. The stories of their astonishing results with the raw food diet will inspire you and help you see that you can do it too!

The book starts with Tonya's own amazing health and beauty transformation story and continues with many other womens stories. Inspirational in that they all cure health problems and become sleek and younger looking. The second half of the book is recipes which are presented in an unusual format that we really like. There is a page with the recipe and a page with lots of nutritional info about the main ingredient - what a powerhouse of valuable facts this is. Recipes sections are sprouting, juices, salads and dressings, living soups, appetizers, entrees, snacks, cookies, pies, cakes, shakes and smoothies. Try lusty, luxurious lasanga, pizza, meatless meatballs or satisfy a sweet tooth with macadamia cheesecake, chocolate sheet cake or blueberry pie.

Hate cooking? I do too. What if you learn that you do not have to cook ever again?

It is a well-known fact that the less food has been processed, the more sound it is nutritionally. So why process at all? Why not trust the Creator of human life with food as well? Why not recognize the laws of nature instead of looking for a way to go against them? To process food is an arrogant notion - we seem to be saying that God's menu needs improvement.

Human beings cannot create life and yet we assume that we can manufacture better foodstuffs. The only food fit for human beings is raw plant food from God's table such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. But we replace this ample and nutritious diet with the cook's concoctions.

By cooking our food we are killing nutrients that keep us alive and healthy. Cooking removes the goodness of food. Fresh fruits and vegetables have a life force that is carried by enzymes, the biochemical catalysts that constitute the difference between life and death.

Nature's plan calls for food to deliver its own enzymes to assist the body with its digestion. But enzymes are killed when temperature rises above approximately 118° Fahrenheit. Cooked food depletes the body's own enzyme reserve and curtails its rejuvenating power that has to keep you healthy, youthful and beautiful.

Tonya Zavasta overcame many obstacles to achieve her radiant health and beauty. With practical simplicity, she shares her story, showing how the principles of the raw food lifestyle can help you stimulate and sustain your body's rejuvenating ability, which will significantly improve your health and help you become truly beautiful.

But Beautiful on Raw contains more than just Tonya's experiences-it includes extensive interviews with other women who have achieved the same astonishing results. Their stories will inspire you with the confidence to realize that you can do it too!

Tonya and other Rawsome women discuss:

· What brought them to the raw foods lifestyle and the steps they took to get there
· The amazing changes they noted in their physical appearance and self-esteem
· What it is like to have other people respond to their age-defying beauty and radiant health
· Their personal beauty secrets and insights on celebrating youthfulness, health and wisdom with each coming year.

Beautiful on Raw makes this possible with 100 delectable recipes celebrating the 100 (and only) ingredients you'll ever need. You'll love making the…
· Simple delicious juices, living scrumptious soups, tasty appetizers, salads and dressings
· Flavorful entrees such as Lusty Luxurious Lasagna (using a "secret" alternative to pasta!), Vibrant Veggie Nori Rolls and Healthy Buckwheat Burgers
· Yummy raw desserts including Clever Carrot Cake (better than baked!), plus snacks, treats, smoothies and more!

Why not join the adventure and find a beauty that glows?

In creating these recipes great respect was exercised in the treatment of original "from scratch" ingredients. Every effort was made to preserve their color, taste and texture. You will love to prepare these simple but delicious servings without destroying the nutritional value of God's given food. This book will make it easier for you to follow the raw food diet and nature in turn will safeguard your health and beauty.

"I have to write you to tell you how much I love your new book, "Beautiful on Raw." Everyday, I am motivated to continue towards a raw food diet by something I read in your book. Your interviews with women who are, like you, succeeding on the raw food diet are inspirational. Your own journey is awesome - and you look so beautiful. Your recipes I have tried so far have been delicious. And, I am even more motivated to eat the truly healthy raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds after I read your descriptions of each in your book. Thank you for writing such a fabulous, encouraging and insightful book. I will certainly tell my friends and family about your book."- Angela Curtis

Colloidal Silver Medical Uses, Toxicology & Manufacture

  • Description

Colloidal Silver Medical Uses, Toxicology & Manufacture

By John Hill
Paperback, 124pages
Publication date: 30 March 2009

This book is a comprehensive, current and objective reference on colloidal silver. It is a thorough review of old and recent scientific and medical literature on the medical and toxicological aspects of silver colloids.

Colloidal Silver has been promoted as a wonder cure for all infectious diseases and denounced by the FDA as an unapproved and ineffective drug.  So, what are the facts?

Up through the 1940's silver medicines were sold in over four dozen forms and used as a near universal antibiotic.  They were quickly phased out with the introduction of penicillin and other patented antibiotics.  The medical literature on silver medicine from the middle of the 1800's to the middle of the 1900's is extensive.  Most of this old literature was collected, analyzed and summarized.

There have been numerous informal or anecdotal reports published on the internet.  There have also been well documented invitro (in a petri dish in a lab) studies performed on the antimicrobial effects of colloidal silver on many micro-organisms.  Some of this data is collected and summarized.

There have been informal studies on silver absorption and elimination published only on the internet.  There has also been some modern research on the microbiology of silver and silver products.  This data has also been collected and summarized.

Because of over use, over dosage and the use of more toxic forms of silver medicines, a condition called argyria (staining of the skin by silver deposits) was reported in some patients from the earlier era.  A number of prejudicial statements have been made against silver medicine because of the argyria issue.  A detailed and objective analysis with all available information is presented.  Argyria is easily avoided if it is understood.

This book does not give medical advise and does not promote silver use.  It also leaves many medical questions unanswered simply because the answers don't exist in published literature.  It does present a compilation of a massive amount of available documented information that all individuals interested in silver medicine should have.

An indepth look at Collial Silver & Argyria by Jeanne Stockinger
This book is very thorough, very detailed and up to date. Compared to other books that I have read, this is an advanced rather than beginner book. I appreciated the detailed information on silver absorption and elimination and the candid and pragmatic discussion of argyria and silver toxicology. "...with good products, good information and due diligence, argyria is avoidable." This is the best single source of good information that I have found to date. In the manufacturing chapter, I found some very useful details about the process that I did not find on the internet or elsewhere. While this author is not selling products or promoting any brands or manufacturers, he does give a lot of information on medical uses and applications that are referenced to both old and recent medical and scientific publications. I liked the use of solid references to support statements and opinions.

MUST READ THIS BOOK! by healthy reader
This book is great. It covers all aspects of colloidal silver from the history, to how it works and how to make it. Very easy to read.

Very informative by Dixie
I love this book. It is very informative. I recently began making my own colloidal silver and this book really helped me. It also helped me to realize how many illnesses can be treated with colloidal silver. My gum disease, which I have struggle to treat for several years, is actually getting better after a couple weeks of use.

Quite technical by sandy b
Learned a lot about doses tried by some people. Also learned about the various methods of using silver medically. Some chapters easier to grasp than others. So impressed I ordered one for each of my children.

A great compilation of information by Dark Star
When I first got this book as my free Prime book for my Kindle, I thought "Well, I could have just done a Google search and found that!" But this author has taken just about any information you can find and tied it together in a cohesive manner that informs and keeps you from having to wade through a lot of duplicate information.

Confessions of a Body Builder

  • Description

By Bob McCauley
Perfect Paperback: 112 pages
Publisher: Spartan Enterprises, Inc., 3rd edition, May 2005

From the Author
I researched this book for over a year. I was introduced to these incredible whole foods, Spirulina and Chlorella over 4 years ago. As a vegetarian, I have never found a better source of protein, enzymes and other vital nutrients. I learned of Ionized Water 3 years ago and being in the bottled water business immediately saw its potential. However, I never imagined the powerful health and rejuvenation properties of Ionized Water. I'm living testament to its great qualities. I've never felt better.

I am not a body builder in the sense one usually thinks of a body builder. I do not sit in a gym with other muscular men and women and pump iron. While I do exercise vigorously everyday, the body building I refer to in the title of this book, and on the following pages, has to do with rejuvenating our bodies at the cellular level through the use of Nutrients and Ionized Water. What is accomplished by this is nothing short of slowing, if not reversing, the ageing process. Much to my amazement, it can be done!

Customer Reviews

"This book changed my life for the better. I understand health so much better than I did. I was doing everything wrong. But with the simple changes the author suggests, I have completely different changed my health. I haven't been to the doctor once since reading and I use to go constantly". Jeff

"I was just beginning to learn about different types of water and I came across ionized water and picked up this book. I really love the author's explanation. He breaks it down and makes everything he discusses very interesting. I have started drinking the water and it is great stuff. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone trying to improve their health or learn about health from a different perspective". Pat Johnson

"I can across this book while searching on Amazon for books on alternative health. I didn't know much about ionized water but this book taught me a ton and was really easy reading. I always knew that raw food were good for you, but I didn't really how important they were until reading this book. I would definetly recommend this to anyone interested in improving their health and general well-being." Jake McKenzie

Conscious eating is being aware of how the food we eat effects our body, emotions, mind and spirit. This book advocates vegetarianism and conscious eating and presents a wholeness approach to diet that explores the physical, spiritual, and larger, planetary implications of our diet.

Included is new information on enzymes, vegetarian nutrition for pregnancy, and an innovative international 14-day menu of gourmet, Kosher, vegetarian, live-food cuisine, plus 150 recipes.


"In this book, an expanded revision of his 1992 work, Cousens endeavors to make his readers aware of how their food choices affect their bodies, minds, emotions, and spiritual life. He emphasizes there is no one-diet-fits-all approach, but rather a consciousness on the part of the individual of what works. He includes information on the oxidative, autonomic, ayurvedic, anabolic-catabolic, endocrine, blood-type, and acid base diet systems. In personalizing a diet, the individual needs to answer these questions:

• Am I emotionally stable after eating?
• Do I have increased physical energy after eating?
• Am I craving any foods?

"Cousens details studies where poor diets were fed to indigenous groups such as the Kurds, Yemenites, and Zulus. The indigenous people studied had been introduced to highly refined carbohydrate foods and suffered from degenerative conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. He points to a diet of fast, frozen, and processed foods, adopted by Americans and peoples of most industrialized nations, as one that is inadequate. He characterizes this diet as one loaded with refined sugar, white flour, and pesticides.

"The author establishes guidelines for healthy eating by recommending that people consume natural, whole, and organic foods and that the diet be primarily fresh, live raw foods. He advocates a high-complex-carbohydrate, low-protein, and low-fat regimen with attention to receiving adequate sunlight. Deep breathing, bathing, and contact with nature in the form of gardening or hikes all have therapeutic effects.

"In this era where so many things are condensed or encapsulated, reading a book with 850 pages is a daunting task. In this case, it's worth the effort. In Conscious Eating Gabriel Cousens has compiled a handbook that emphasizes the benefits of a raw food diet. He has woven together many philosophies from around the world and incorporated them into a body-mind-spirit program that will be beneficial to the individual and to all mankind. The book is a valuable reference tool that belongs in every vegetarian's library."

By Archie H Scott

Publication Date: 8 July 2013

A True Wonder Drug D.M.S.O. is a natural chemical compound derived from trees as a by-product from paper manufacturing. D.M.S.O. has been called a new medical principle and a true wonder drug. It has proven effective, either by itself or in combination with other products in the treatment of nearly every ailment known. There has been much controversy about D.M.S.O. over the last 50 years. It is one of the most studied medical products ever. Thousands of scientific articles have been written about D.M.S.O. When used properly it is one of the safest products know. It is also very cheap to produce. This book provides the documentation needed to show that D.M.S.O. is probably the most important product ever for the relief of human suffering.

Archie is quite clearly a leading authorithy on D.M.S.O. He has extensive knowledge and experience regarding the clinical benefits of D.M.S.O. treatment. For decades, Archie has studied and worked with D.M.S.O. He understands the safety, utility and efficaciousness of D.M.S.O. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in health, especially for those who want to learn more about non toxic medical therapies. For individuals with certain health ailments, D.M.S.O. could prove quite benefical. -Daniel Junck, M.D.

Best source of DMSO info on Amazon, by Niki B.
DMSO can be used for so many things which I learned from this book. I work at a compounding pharmacy where we use DMSO in some of our formulations. I had my MD write me an RX for DMSO 50% in a base and use it for back and neck pain. It worked like a miracle and since I was able to get pharmaceutical grade there is no garlicky smell at all. Might be worth seeing if your MD will write you an RX and take to your local compounding pharmacy to be sure you're getting pure DMSO.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book!, by Carolee R. Johnson
This book has been very informative. I know my father used DMSO when I was a child and he cured his own cancer after rejecting regular medical protocols. He has been cancer free since that time and it has been forty years. I have used it to clear long time skin issues.
I very much appreciate the case histories and studies presented in this book. I would call it a must read for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best handbook for using DMSO, by Linda Walton
This book can not only inform doctors , it also helps the average lay person to better understand using DMSO.The best written book out there on DMSO. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars miracle from the tree of life, by Kathy Rowley
This book is very easy to read and understand how DMSO works. I have been using it for some period of time and have actually seen the skin cancer leave my face. My granddaughter had an baseball injury to her knee that would not heal. Her knee is good as new and the scar has disapeared. Made a beliver out of her. I love it. Can't imagine not being able to have it readily available

DMSO really works!, by MetaCynic (Chicago)
The healing power of DMSO discussed in this book is no exaggeration. I've been using DMSO on and off for exercise related injuries since 1983. It really works.

Depending on where it's applied, sometimes the skin will burn and itch for about 15 minutes and look like a bad sunburn afterward. This is temporary and harmless. On other places I will feel almost no sensation. It's especially effective on a fresh tissue injury. Since it quickly penetrates the skin and enters the blood stream, within a few minutes of application there is always a fishy taste in my mouth. One social side effect of frequent use is that the user will emit a fishy smell! This is a small price to pay for those in chronic pain.

At least for me, the pain killing effect of DMSO is uneven. Sometimes it will kill the pain completely, other times the effect is partial. But it always does something. Unlike prescription painkillers, DMSO's effect is cumulative. The more frequently one uses it, the less one needs. The least irritating delivery system is DMSO combined with aloe vera gel. The deodorant type applicator is too messy.

It's unfortunate that mainstream medicine has shunned this inexpensive, safe and extremely effective healer in favor of expensive, addictive and dangerous prescription drugs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool book and product!, by R. Haeckler (West Chester, PA)
I got the book after I got the DMSO, which I found out about via a Jenny McCarthay book where she mentioned some "Mother Warrior" used it to help her autistic kid. I found an article on the net that said vitamin B12 and folic acid could be dissolved in DMSO and then applied to the skin for good absorption to cure anemia, and another article on how DMSO can cure colitis and I was hooked.

This book doesn't mention either of those treatmens using DMSO and there are a lot more exciting possibilities like using DMSO to get GABA supplements across the blood brain barrier that it doesn't touch, but the information in it is fascinating. I read the book in a day, couldn't put it down. It was very clear for a medical layman.

Basically it's a summary of a lot of research done on DMSO with a section in the beginning on what it is and how they think it works on the body. Some of the research summarized that I found interesting are the use of it within 90 min of a spinal cord injury preventing paralysis, the way it can be used on burn victims to prevent infection, numb pain, and promote healing, and the treatment of infants with Down's Syndrome to help them reach their potential and prevent some of the genetic effects it can cause.

The book also covers (briefly with no conspiracy theories) why the FDA has shut down research on this drug that was once labeled a breakthrough new medicine by them, and why doctors can't tell us about it or recommend it without fear of losing their license.

I used it for a week and my ganglion cyst completely disappeared, an unexpected but welcome side-effect!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, by John "John" (US)
Don't let the naysayers discourage you from reading this book or others like it. The multibillion dollar drug companies have not cured anything. They profit on illness and other side effects from their drugs. There are many natural ways to take care of your health.

Just keep reading, help is out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! So much information and DMSO works!, by Christine D. Angel (Hills of Tennessee)
This book has everything you need to know about DMSO. I have used the product for years and it works very well for back pain and soreness of joints. It comes in creams, lotions and spray.

Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

By Clinton Ober, M.D. Stephen T. Sinatra & Martin Zucker
Paperback, 256pages
Publication date: 25 April 2010

The Solution for chronic inflammation regarded as the cause of most common diseases, has been identified! And it is not blueberries. It is something right beneath our feet--the Earth itself! Throughout most of evolution, humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground. Largely, oblivious that the service of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provide a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work--just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up. Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past. "Earthing" introduces the planet's powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy and how people anywhere can readily connect to it. This eye-opening book describes how the physical disconnect with the Earth creates abnormal physiology and contributes to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep. By reconnecting to the Earth, symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated, and recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated. This never-before-told story--filled with fascinating research and real-life testimonials--chronicles a discovery with the potential to create a global health revolution.

Buy the book and the earthing products  by Cliff Beittel
Another reviewer complained that the positive reviews here are more about the results achieved with earthing products than the book itself. I'll plead guilty to that. So far I've only read the first third of the book, covering the history of Clint Ober's idea and the initial research done showing its results. But I look forward to reading the rest of the book because I've been sleeping grounded for a week now and the benefits have been far greater than I expected.

I have sticky blood, caused by hereditary high levels of Lipoprotein (a). I've had two aneurysms surgically repaired. Both my parents died of aneurysms. Six months ago, following a four-hour plane trip, I got a blood clot in my leg. After six months on Warfarin, the pain in both legs was only getting worse during long periods working at a computer, and my feet were going numb. Intense exercise helped, but not the short breaks I could take while working. I was about to spend $1500 on an electronically controlled sit-stand computer desk so that I could work standing part of the time. Sitting barefoot on the patio in the evening hadn't helped, so I wasn't expecting much when my Barefoot Connections sheet and mat arrived last week. One night of sleeping grounded, however, took me--overnight--from my worst day in six months nearly back to normal. The pain and tingling haven't returned.

I heard about earthing from the newsletter of Dr. Sinatra, a coauthor of this book. I was skeptical. But when I read that sleeping grounded can so effectively thin the blood that it should be done by those on Warfarin only with frequent INR/PT testing, I had to try it. My six months on Warfarin were coming to an end, and I clearly needed to do what I could to thin my blood and promote good circulation in my legs. Earthing has not only nearly eliminated my leg pain, but my blood pressure is now normal without medication for the first time in a decade, something diet and exercise alone never achieved.

If most reviewers here learned of earthing before the book was available, so what? What could possibly be wrong with learning about this inexpensive, healthful practice by reading the book?

First book on importance of getting vibes from Earth--"Vitamin G" for ground by Susan Schenck
An exciting, revolutionary piece of the health puzzle is connecting to the earth by walking barefoot or using "grounding" devices. Clint Ober was a cable guy without even a high school diploma. He observed that people walked with shoes that had insulating materials, such as rubber. They were not grounded. Through experimentation, he discovered that people sleep better, have far less pain, and are calmer if they are grounded. Together with health writer Martin Zucker and Stephen Sinatra, MD, Clint wrote the first book ever written that explains the importance of Mother Earth's natural "vibes" in keeping us healthy.

The authors state, "Exposure to sunlight produces vitamin D in the body. It's needed for health. Exposure to the ground provides an electrical `nutrient' in the form of electrons. Think of these electrons as vitamin G--G for ground. Just like vitamin D, you need vitamin G for your health as well."

The Earth is full of electrons and these electrons work like antioxidants, disarming the free radicals that age us. Some of the benefits of "earthing" include weight loss, diminishing pain, healing of injuries, eliminating jet lag, reduction of muscle loss with aging, enhanced immune system and reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.

The book is divided into four parts: part 1 gives the description of the problem and why grounding is needed; part 2 includes the history of discovering the importance of grounding and doctors who endorse this; part 3 includes scientific studies on earthing; and part 4 discusses the earthing revolution and various products that are used, such as grounding shoes, a grounding bed pad, and a computer pad. There is even a product for pets. This section also has lots of testimonials from people who have been helped by earthing. People have found relief from or improvement in pain, arthritis, inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, wound healing , fibromyalgia, M.S. and many more ailments. Even children with autism improve in behavior, school work and social skills. Athletes have also improved their performance via grounding. For those interested in the science and technical aspects of grounding, appendices A and B offer interesting information.

Historically, people slept on the ground or in caves. Modern life has kept us from connecting to the Earth. When reading this book, you can't wait to go out and walk barefoot! Within as little as 20 minutes, you can feel the difference. Even walking barefoot on concrete helps you connect.

Releived my fatigue and reversed my Lupus by K G. McGuinness
I started using the grounding bed sheet about 2 months ago. I have had Lupus probably for the last 10 years and even went to the Mayo clinic to try to get some relief. It started with my kidneys and over time some of the markers for lupus showed up in my blood work. This last year has been extremely stressful having to sell my house in a bad economy etc and so my condition became extremely aggravated. Signs of swelling in my face and constant fatigue kept increasing over the fall and into the new year. I felt desperate since the drugs I was taking gave me only temporary relief and then I had to deal with unwanted side effects. When I started sleeping on the grounding sheet I was hopeful both because of the clinical research studies and because of the logical explanation of how it can reduce inflammation by neutralizing the positive charge stuck in an ungrounded body. After 6 weeks I noticed I was feeling quite a bit better and finally was scheduled to go to my doctor for a checkup. When he looked at the report he said " Very Good! This is the first time I have seen your blood work come out normal. You no longer have any signs of Lupus." That confirmed my inner felling that the grounding therapy was indeed having a profound effect, way out of proportion to the simplicity of grounding and the relatively negligible cost for the sheet. I would like to thank the authors of this book for alerting me to such an effective yet simple way to dramatically improve my health! A Very Big Thank You!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to go Alkaline - this is your starter guide!, by RMPG43 (New Mexico, USA)
I have no idea why Amazon would allow a person to rate a book a zero based on price. Ignore that one and know that this book is THE one book that makes going alkaline easy. I found this book for $28 from a UK seller and can't say enough about how easy this makes changing your diet to include alkaline choices. I have bought other books on the subject but all those really were is a listing of the acid/alkaline chart of each food.

This book has guides to stocking your pantry, cleanses, easy recipes, shopping guides and is chock full of all the information you need to start introducing a new way of eating into your life without feeling like you are on a specific diet. Fabulous and highly recommend. I know why celebrities are touting this book as a Beauty and Health bible. It's fabulous and makes it easy for us to incorporate alkaline foods and recipes into our daily lives!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book!, by Dogperson
I saw this book and fell in love instantly. It has the main appeal that I look for in every cook book: pictures of the end product, easy to understand recipes, and ingredients that are available. I have tried a lot of these recipes already and haven't found a bad one yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor recommended, by Gabrielle Koczab "drgabe" (Cleveland, Ohio)
I have been recommending this book to all my patients. I am a DO in family medicine and I have taken an interest in a more functional approach to medicine and preventing disease using food. I was not eating properly and getting indigestion and after 2 days of following these recipes, it disappeared. The recipes are simple to make and delicious

5.0 out of 5 stars Great advice & recipes, even for someone with 2 kids and a sugar addiction!, by Cheryl L. Walters I bought this book to try and boost my immunity and relieve the terrible allergies that come with living in the Midwest. Some reviews criticized it for including dairy or for being a detox program... That's not how the book is setup at all. It does include limited dairy like goat cheese as a topping here and there, but that's in and certainly up to you to exclude. It does have a detox section, but that's a suggestion if you want to do a full cleanse before embarking on the alkaline diet as a lifestyle. After the detox/cleanse, you're supposed to pick and choose from the "non-cleanse" recipes as you wish.

I made meals out of this book for week for my family, and while some things looked funny, there were no complaints. After a birthday party this weekend full of cake, ice cream, and everything gluten and dairy-laden, I definitely felt the difference the next morning - full of congestion, drainage, and overall sluggishness. Those symptoms were going away while I ate on this diet, so it's definitely worth breaking some bad habits and following this book's guidelines.

Notes From Sergei and Valya

Dear children, adolescents, and adults, I wish there were some way that I could get this message out to every single one of you. A message that would touch your lives and have you see that happiness is not sold in little baggies or a 40 oz. glass bottle. I wish that there were some way to how you, my own generation, that we can all be happy and free without drugs. I wish I could stop you from hurting your body and make you see how much you will regret it later in life.

Most of all I wish that I could unite all of you and show you that every single one of you is beautiful and miraculous and that life would not be the same without you. Unfortunately, that is impossible, because the only way of teaching is actually not teaching at all! The only way I can get others to follow is by being a good example and sharing my story when asked. The words of even the wisest man are worth nothing if no one wants to hear them!

This is my story:
Before I ate raw food, I always wanted to be cool. I wore baggy pants with trendy names and had flashy skateboards and other toys, but for some reason I wasn't cool. The harder I tried, the less cool I was. When I started eating raw food, I hid it from my peers because I thought I would be even more un-cool. Later on,  however, I found out that in their eyes eating raw food actually made me pretty cool. In fact, I noticed that a person doesn't even have to be way different to be cool. All one needs in order to be cool is sincerity. Eating healthier made me more open. I stopped caring what people said and thought about me. I became more sincere and started speaking openly. People started noticing my sincerity and as a result I made new friends. When we are sincere, people gravitate toward us.

Are you or your children worried that by eating raw food you'll lose some friends? You might lose some friends but I promise you, you'll gain three times as many new, quality friends. If you are a raw fooder it is best if you didn't seclude yourself from the rest of the world and only hang out with raw fooders. You don't have to try to convert everybody to your "raw-legion." In fact, it would be un-cool for you to say, "Stop eating that crap; that pizza's going to kill you." If you did that, you wouldn't have any friends at all! I like what Howard F. Lyman, the author of the best-selling book Mad Cowboy says, "Don't tell people what you are doing unless they ask, and when they ask, you have thirty seconds to respond. That's about how long their attention lasts. If they want to know more they will research on their own or ask more."

Occasionally, people make fun of me for eating raw food, but they're not usually too hard-core. They never say anything like, "You're stupid." They rather make fun of me gently, like, "Have some milk; oh, I forgot you can't have that cause you're crazy." I just respond with, "Yeah, I am crazy, a crazy raw fooder that is! I only eat fruit," When they hear how I start  making fun of myself, they lose interest. In Ashland, people know me as the fruit boy, I just laugh with them. I'm not afraid to make fun of myself! Because I am healthy and happy, and I don't care what people think. It's only thoughts.

I know that I would not be the same person I am today without changing my diet. Before going on raw foods, I was failing every subject in third grade except art. I couldn't read, so naturally I couldn't write. Learning geography was out of the question; I was quite happy in Denver Colorado. History? Yeah, right. That would really come in handy. Who cares about a bunch of dead guys? I was under the impression that THEY were going to teach me without my having to do anything. I had a hard time concentrating and could not remember anything. Fact: to learn, one must have the ability to remember. My energy would bounce from so high that I would be racing through the house back and forth, to so low that I wouldn't have the energy to change the channel on the remote control.

Before I went on raw food, I had asthma. Like many other sicknesses, asthma is considered incurable. I had trouble breathing at night and could not sleep. Whenever I ran, I felt like I was suffocating. My nose was always clogged, and I was pale no matter how much time I spent outside. My health was getting worse. My favorite food were milk and cheese. (This could be the reason my asthma got so bad). I used to cut a two-inch thick slice of cheese, put it between some wonder bread, and eat it.  Sometimes I'd eat the cheese without the bread. My family would go through two gallons of milk a day. My mother bought six gallons of milk at a time so that it would last for a while. My father was capable of eating three chickens in one sitting. At the age of nine, Sergei could eat an extra-large pizza all by himself! As you can imagine, we were all overweight. The doctors discovered that Sergei had juvenile diabetes, my dad had hyper thyroid, and my mother had a bad heart condition.

Health, however, was far from being my biggest problem. I was unhappy. I tried to entertain myself with movies, restaurants, and theme parks, but pleasure could never fill my feeling empty inside. My life was slowly zipping by. Every day was just like the day before. I would often wonder where all the time went. It seemed rather fast, like
something was missing. I dreamed of adventure and doing exciting things, but it all seemed pretty hopeless. I was going to get held back in school. As soon as I went on raw food, I switched to home schooling and started learning about the things I wanted to learn about. My grades started going way up. Learning became exciting for me. I learned by following my curiosity. I found that I was full of questions. It felt like a curtain had been lifted. My brain was filled with a sharp clarity. I began to remember things so much more easily. My energy became balanced. I could sit down and study now. Reading became my favorite thing to do. I understood that I was the only one who could really teach me anything. I saw thousands of opportunities like doors in front of me and I became aware that I had to open them myself, no one could do that for me. I stopped expecting to grow up some far off day and suddenly knew what I wanted to do with my life. I realized that I already was the person I was going to be the rest of my life. My life had already begun!

Before I went on raw food I had hard time breathing, especially in spring. When my first "raw" spring came I was suddenly aware I could breath through my nose! Many of my friends had colds, runny noses, and allergies. I used to have all of those, and I had nothing! At that moment, I felt that all my suffering with food cravings was worth it. I realized that I wanted to eat raw foods for the rest of my life. After I changed my diet, I never had another asthma attack. I lost some weight and started running in the mornings with my brother. I even got to the point where I could whistle while running! Raw food has changed my life. It has made me a healthier person. When a person is healthy, it's easier to be happy. My life is definitely easier than it would have been if I had not changed my diet. I don't ever need to worry about being sick with any of the thousands of diseases, viruses, or infections. I do not need braces, glasses, or Ritalin. I don't have headaches, toothaches, earaches, colds, allergies, acne, parasites, ADD, (Attention Deficit Disorder) anorexia, or obesity. Sometimes I feel guilty that I'm not sick because I have nothing to relate with other teenagers about. My friends like to talk about their symptoms and I have nothing to say! Last week I went to the dentist. He was so surprised. He told me that I had some of the best teeth he had ever seen in a teenager.

Back when I was nine years old, my sister and I would talk to each other about the day we turned eighteen. This day would be a special day because on this day, we would stop eating raw food. We would dream about what kind of food we would break the diet with. Corndogs, pizza, nachos, and crab were just some of the foods we were going to order on that magical day. As the years went by this dream seemed less and less appetizing until one day when I forgot about thought altogether. I started noticing that food did not run my life as before. No longer did my whole existence revolve around it. Spending less time eating gave me more free time during the day. I began using this time for observing others and myself. I noticed how my mother, who worked sixteen-hour days, would have a huge pile of dishes waiting for her at the end of the day, or how my father, who some days did twelve massages in a row, would still have to wash the floor in the kitchen before he passed out. I observed how I felt when I just sat around watching TV while my parents worked and I pretended like I didn't notice. I still remember the day I made up my mind to wash the dishes for my mom and the floor for my dad. It was the first time in my life that I didn't try to get away with doing as little a possible. I turned on the radio to my favorite station, put on some gloves, and washed those dishes until I could see my reflection in them. The floors always seemed to me like a lot of hard and dirty work, but appeared to me surprisingly easy to do. The reward for me came when my parents, who were so used to washing the dishes and floor, came into the kitchen and found that everything was already done. It was like someone zapped them with a stun gun. It was such an incredible feeling that I decided to help them out more often. It was after that day that I had my first major revelation: I, Sergei Boutenko, enjoyed helping people! I felt good inside every time I helped someone, so I naturally started doing it more often. Once again, I learned how things in life are not always as they seem. When I avoided work and tried to get happiness from entertainment, I was unhappy. When I began working to help others, I was no longer as bored and became happy...

Embrace, Release, Heal: An Empowering Guide to Talking About, Thinking About, and Treating Cancer

Embrace, Release, Heal: An Empowering Guide to Talking About, Thinking About, and Treating Cancer

By Leigh Fortson
Paperback, 300pages
Publication date: 3 May 2011

After her third cancer diagnosis in three years, Leigh Fortson was given few options by her doctors and little hope for a bright future. For weeks, she mourned the life she thought she was losing—until she was introduced to an idea that changed everything: our thoughts and emotions influence every cell in our body.

This revelation gave her the hope that would begin her journey to becoming cancer-free and more joyful than she had ever been before. Embrace, Release, Heal shares her inspirational story and the fruits of her research in one empowering book.

Created to help anyone whose life has been affected by cancer, this in-depth resource offers interviews with both allopathic and integrative medical experts; remarkable accounts from people who transcended "terminal cancer" and are now thriving, snapshots of progressive treatment techniques; and insights into other key factors that can affect well-being—including thoughts, emotions, and diet.


Physicians and survivors like Leigh Fortson should be applauded for having the courage to share their findings. . . . Knowledge that is accumulating outside of the medical model of cancer care cannot be ignored. The reader may not come away convinced, but can and should remain open to considering what is written. --Diane Brandley, New York Journal of Books, March 7, 2011

Embrace, Release, Heal is a marvelous, enlightening and inspiring book for all those interested in natural, holistic healing. Although it's packed with relevant and intriguing information, it's got an empowering message and many real-life happy endings. -- Stephanie Miller,, March 2011, March 12, 2011

Fortson's book overall settles into a middle ground that even those with a skeptical bent can appreciate. Who would argue that good nutrition, stress reduction and a healthy attitude can aid in healing? Fortson lays out options in these realms and then tells readers they should search their own psyches and do what feels right for them. Intuition, she stresses throughout this book, can be a powerful healing tool. Fortson wraps up with a reference section that is in itself worth the price of the book.
--Nancy Lofholm, The Denver Post, April 24, 2011

In Embrace Release Heal, author Leigh Fortson describes her own journey with cancer. After her third cancer diagnosis, she is given a hopeless prognosis, and is determined to save herself while also educating others through this book. Cancer survivors are all around, and Fortson finds them and shares their stories with us. Although she chose the path of traditional medicine for her first two rounds, by the third round, Fortson no longer wanted to subject her body to the harsh treatments of chemotherapy and radiation. Instead, she chose to honor her body's own wisdom and try to heal herself in a more natural way. Ultimately each person needs to determine what course of action to take, but it's easier to make a decision when all the options are before us. While some traditional options are explored in this book, its focus is on those treatments we may not know about - treatment programs that have an astonishing success rate, but doctors are unable to recommend them. Cancer doesn't have to be the end - it can also be a beginning. When we realize what we've been doing that contributed to the cancer, we can start to live life from a new perspective. And even if we aren't able to cure the cancer, we can life our lives to the fullest while we're able. I highly recommend Embrace Release Heal for anyone suffering with a cancer diagnosis. --Alice Berger,

"... What I did not expect was the extreme attention to treatment details, personal stories of triumph and overwhelming upbeat attitude from Ms. Fortson. Bottom line: I found this book to be a true revelation and a must-read for anyone who is working through a cancer diagnosis and for those who love them. Whether you are a fan of traditional therapies or tend to lean towards more of a naturopathic route, you will find information and resources that offer encouragement, hope and successful feedback from those who have already walked a mile in your shoes. The book relates powerfully and effortlessly with the difficulty of our situation." -- Kim Petersen,, September 2011

Customer Reviews

Bravo, Ms. Fortson!, by W. Wogan (Boulder, CO)
Change usually happens at the margins. Ms. Fortson's book, "Embrace, Release, Heal", documents in an accessible, clear and straightforward manner the world of cancer treatment occurring at the margins of our society. Starting with her own compelling story of three cancer diagnoses and body altering treatments, she establishes herself as a trusted guide through the rest of the interviews in the book. With intense curiosity and an open mind, she discusses various alternative healing methods with experts in those fields. She covers everything from more traditional approaches to raw foods, intuitive healing, naturopathic medicine, epigenetics and the power of prayer.

What I liked most about this book was how Ms. Fortson weaves personal stories of cancer survivors with interviews from various experts. In this era of high-stakes, big pharma medicine, the highly personal nature of the cancer experience tends to get lost; Ms. Fortson keeps reminding us that there are many ways to walk this path. If you're dealing with a cancer diagnosis, this book will both encourage and challenge you. It will also give you resources and ideas you may not have considered before. Each chapter ends with "The Particulars": addresses, links, phone numbers, cost estimates and a section on what to expect if you choose to follow that particular healing modality.

Eventually change will work its way from the periphery to the center. And every so often, a catalyst will hasten this process and thrust innovation into a system. This is one of those catalysts. Bravo, Ms. Fortson!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Guide to Coping with Cancer, by Grady Harp (Los Angeles, CA United States)
Leigh Fortson is an extraordinary human being who has taken a personal experience with the possibility of impending death and discovered pathways to not only coping but also in aiding the body to heal. In this immensely readable book Fortson begins with her story - despite being a believer and practitioner of health ( she has co-authored books on alternative medicine, nutrition, and general health topics) she has faced three diagnoses of cancer, undergone traditional chemotherapy etc , ann faced the devastating concept of failure of treatment in addition to added diagnoses of cancer. This journey from 2006 to the present is what she shares with us, and in opening her fountain of experience/knowledge she is providing sound insights and techniques of coping with cancer.

While Fortson integrates stories from other cancer victims in her writings, the book reflects her own research into the mysteries of cancer. Her solutions may sound simple to those who have never encountered debilitating diseases, but for those who face such diagnoses this book offers enlightenment of the first order. The title of the book outlines Leigh Fortson's principles: EMBRACE, RELEASE, HEAL: AN EMPOWERING GUIDE TO TALKING ABOUT, THINKING ABOUT, AND TREATING CANCER. Working with groups of cancer victims she ha found that immersing ourselves in the disease which threatens our lives allows us to come into contact with reality, how to take that reality and embrace it and in doing so, release the fear and negativity of a condition few of us can even define, let alone understand or explain. The manner in which Fortson deals with her own traditional therapy gives her a vantage from which she can relate all possibilities of the process to those who are either facing that form of therapy or are in the midst of it and at the same time offer the knowledge she has gained about alternative forms of coping and healing the malfunctioning body.

Leigh Fortson's style of writing is direct, warm, supportive and manages to find that solid middle ground of being challenging while at the same time being completely in tune with the feelings that come with the diagnosis of cancer. Highly recommended for patients with cancer, families and friends of like patients, AND physicians who desperately need to hear this side of the beast of disease they are faced with fighting. Grady Harp, April 11

Great Book for first timers!, by CircleCityGirl (Indianapolis, IN)
I just bought the Kindle version of this book and love it!The first recipe I tried was the "Spaghetti" with "Meatballs". I bought a spiral slicer to make the spaghetti with. Also the recipe for the marinara sauce is fantastic!! My Meat loving boyfroend was amazed at how good the zuchinni noodles were and actually went back for seconds!! I am so excited to try more recipes from this book and eat healthier in 2012!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Express is a relative word, by Prettysmartideas (New York, NY)
I did like this Raw Food Express, and most of the dishes can be prepared relatively quickly, but quite a few of them do require you to have made up some of the ingredients yesterday or the day before (does this count as express?) Still, this book has enough interesting recipes for me to keep it on my shelf and refer back to it from time to time.Everyday Raw Express: Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE Matthew Kenney's Books, by Juicing mama "Juicing mama" (PA)
All of Matthew Kenney's "Raw Food" books are filled with delicious recipes and eye-candy photos!!! Some of his other books have more complex recipes, which are so worth the time to make, and this one is even better for us because the recipes are quick and easy.

If we are in need of taking a beautiful raw food dish somewhere, I reach for his books, and it never fails, the final dish is always beautiful and delicious. I agree, we eat with our eyes first :) Thanks for a book with a 30 minutes or less option!

Amazon wrapped this book well, it arrived undented. I appreciate books being send with cardboard and plastic wrap to keep them from being scuffed and dented. I want a new book to look new when we get it. Thank you Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Delicious - a great Raw primer, by Sue
I've been familiar with Matthew Kenney's raw food since dining at Pure Food and Wine six years ago. When I bought the PF&W cookbook I was floored at the amount of lead/prep time and never bothered to recreate that lasagna which still haunts my dreams. I was thrilled to see Mister Kenney release Everyday Raw; but was still too intimidated to give any of the recipes a shot (dehydrators, food processors and soaking: oh my!)

Enter Everyday Raw Express. Finally, great tasting (and healthy) Raw food a la Kenney that is a snap to prepare. The Spaghetti & Meatballs were amazing. I reduced the amount of tahini in the recipe since tahini overpowers most elements it is mixed with and the results were stunning. Mom and I loved it. Can't wait to make this again.

I now have the confidence to move forward in preparing raw food and look forward to preparing more recipes in this book and Everyday Raw.

Thanks, Matthew & co. for helping me get on track with raw food. Hope to see more another Everyday Raw Express-like title in the future.

Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration

  • Description
Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration

By Penney Peirce
Paperback, 272pages
Publicatoin date: 1 September 2011

Frequency gives readers the tools to understand how and why their natural frequency interacts with the world around them.

Because we see the world from a physical perspective, we often don't notice what's right in front of us — that our spirit, thoughts, emotions, and body are all made of energy. Inside us and everywhere around us, life is vibrating. In fact, each of us has a personal vibration that accurately communicates who we are to the world and helps shape our reality. Frequency shows readers how to feel their personal vibration, improve it, and use it to shift their life from ordinary to extraordinary. A simple shift in frequency can change depression to peace, anger to stillness, and fear to enthusiasm.

Weaving together basic ideas from quantum physics with proven intuition development techniques, Frequency takes readers into deeper concepts only hinted at in recent popular books and DVD's featuring the Law of Attraction. By learning to refine the "conscious sensitivity" of their body, readers can improve relationships, find upscale solutions to problems, and materialize a life that contains everything they want and need to live their destiny.

Frequency gives readers a reassuring, step-by-step roadmap into a positive state of awareness that Peirce calls The Intuition Age. By learning to use "frequency principles" — methods based on the way energy actually functions — readers can keep their energy level high and productive, receive subtle information directly from the environment via "empathic resonance," and quickly free themselves from negative or low "vibrations."


"In this potent and evocative exploration of the new art and science of frequency dynamics, Peirce brings profound knowledge and speculation that inspires as it excites. If applied across many disciplines, it provides a basis for new ways of being and doing, health and creativity."
Jean Houston, PhD, author of Jump Time and A Passion for the Possible

"We are all affected by positive and negative energy whether we realize it or not. With the wisdom contained in this book, you will learn how to raise the level of your vibration—your frequency—to benefit yourself and humankind in miraculous ways."
Masaru Emoto, author of The Hidden Messages in Water

"Many indicators tell us we are about to experience a rapid transition to a new world that will change the essential nature of who we are and how we understand reality. Transcending the coming chaos is possible with the toolset provided here. Frequency is an unprecedented gift for the person who is ready to evolve."
John L. Petersen, founder of The Arlington Institute and author of A Vision for 2012

"Seeing ourselves as energy beings is the most important breakthrough of our times. In Frequency, Penney Peirce clarifies many of the energy principles that have previously been unacknowledged, but which we can now intentionally use to keep ourselves healthy and improve the realities we live in. I laughed out loud when I read this book, and enjoyed it immensely."
Richard Bartlett, author of Matrix Energetics and Physics of Miracles

5 out of 5 Stars. This is a keeper as a great reference book with many tools! by Susan Schenck TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE
I really got sucked into buying this book because the title and cover are so seductive--let's face it, we all do judge a book by the cover! But I wasn't disappointed. It started out a bit slow (perhaps because it contained so much background that I already knew about). But as I read on, I found invaluable information that will help me catch up to my husband and other intuitive friends.

The book begins with discussion of the coming transformation in human consciousness, and includes 9 stages a person typically passes through. The frequencies we live in are discussed, in order to make the information appeal to the more grounded left-brain types. Different levels (which correlate with chakras) are also listed.

The middle of the book gets more personal with tips on how to become aware of your feeling habits, and understanding how they developed. It teaches how to undo the unhealthy feeling habits and start healthy ones.

Penny shows how people collapse gradually into a negative energy rut, and how to get out. Chapter 5 ("Feeling Your Home Frequency") includes the very best description I have ever read of what it means to "be in your body" as well as how to get deeper into your body. Before I started eating a primarily raw food diet 7 years ago, many people would accuse me of not being in my body!

You also learn how to become much more intuitive as you "feel into" other people and even objects. Penny's description of what happened to her in Japan is sure to blow your mind as well as give you an insight into the Asian culture.
Later in the book you learn how to master relationship resonance, reading people, finding solutions to your problems, and much more.

Each chapter has at least one "Try this!" section with exercises to make you think and learn, as well as a "Just to recap" summary. The chapters end with a "Home Frequency Message" section that you can read slowly or listen to as someone reads it aloud. This inspired writing catapults you into a deeper experience.

I thought I was going to be able to sell my used copy on Amazon, but now I realize I have to keep it as a reference book for when I need to get more intuitive! There are just too many valuable exercises in it!

If you're planning on juicing why not make sure you're drinking the most effective juice for your body today?

From Incurable to Incredible: Cancer Survivors Who Beat the Odds

By Tami Boehmer
Paperback, 222pages
Publication date: 9 June 2010

From Incurable to Incredible features 27 stories of cancer survivors who shocked everyone by overcoming a terminal prognosis. You'll learn about Dave Massey, who in 1986 and again in 1997, was given six months to live. Today, he runs marathons and speaks at cancer centers nationwide to spread his message of hope. Paul Falk, diagnosed 23 years ago at age 9 with acute leukemia, describes how his doctors wondered if he would survive two weeks. A year later, he wowed everyone by becoming the personal guest of then Vice President George H.W. Bush. And then there's Mary Jacobson who, after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, bought a coffin and made arrangements for her young daughter. Fifteen years later, she competes in Strong Woman competitions and pulls planes, trains and automobiles for charity. The book includes discussion questions, a list of common attributes these survivors share, as well insights on survivorship by best-selling author Bernie Siegel and Doug Ulman, CEO and president of LIVESTRONG.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing book, by Nancy Olivares
This book is so beautiful some people only understand if you are living with cancer. One night I felt so alone, was tired of reading such negative things about my breast cancer. I typed in google for a positive sign for this, something to lift my spirits and I found this book. Became friends on facebook with the author and the book site. It made me realize there is hope, and I am not dying. Everyday I am thankful because I feel this was an angel that came to me.

The best part of From Incurable to Incredible is that even though I am not a cancer survivor, I feel I grew personally from their stories. And obviously, I can now share these hopeful stories with those I love living with cancer, but the book spoke to me so poignantly that I will have to buy them their own copy!

I want to share that these survivor stories are not sugar coated or typical or what I even expected, but rather realistic, direct, genuine and immediate. The book gracefully shares each person's story with the changes, challenges and choices that cancer imparts. And their stories underscore those universal challenges we all must face: stress, nutrition, exercise, relationships, changes, and unexpected attitudes. In reading how each person's story unfolded,I was grateful that they would share their life. I kept asking myself how I might feel, and I want to believe that I would be as hopeful and courageous as these people; however, I was "on the edge of my seat" wanting to know how each path twisted and turned.

Now I am more convinced than ever that stress, nutrition, exercise, and living with purpose are not just optional, but required. So I highly recommend this book as a reference. It is a good reminder of what is truly sacred and important about life, that is, living with hope, purpose and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring!, by Cathy M. (East Norwich, New York United States)
I discovered this book shortly after being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and it was the most encouraging and helpful thing I could have read at that point. It gave me hope and a whole new way of looking at my diagnosis. I highly recommend this book to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. Now whenever I have a bad day, I go back to this book and read a chapter or two about someone who didn't let the cancer defeat their spirit, who managed to really "live" with their diagnosis and beyond the prognosis, and it's the shot I need to keep my spirit strong, as important to me as the shots I get to physically control the cancer!

5.0 out of 5 stars truly incredible, by kelly
This book is amazing! Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. The stories were truly inspirational. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 at the ripe old age of 36 and I so wish I had this book to draw strength from. It is not only great for someone going through cancer, but for anyone who just needs to draw a little inspiration from some incredible people. It is a terrific read and I didn't want it to end! I'm looking forward to volume 2!!

Green For Life

By Victoria Boutenko
Paperback, 186 pages
Publication date: 1 January 2006

Green For Life was selected as finalist for the Prestigious 2006 Independent Book Publishers Awards!

Many people know that we should eat more greens, but rarely do any of us truly enjoy our kale or wheatgrass. For the first time in history a remarkably enjoyable way of consuming the necessary amount of greens has been created by blending the greens with fruit. From this smoothie, the body can absorb the essential nutrients much more efficiently. Anyone can prepare tasty green smoothies quickly in their own kitchen, with their own choice of ingredients. With green smoothies people gain more control of their own health.

This book is written in a clear style, illustrated with anecdotes, diagrams and pictures. The results of the Roseburg study conducted by Victoria and Dr Fieber, reveal the unique healing potential of green smoothies. Boutenko was originally looking for a way to improve the raw food diet - a diet based on fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and avocados. While this eating regiment helped her family's health tremendously, Boutenko couldn't help but notice something was missing. After extensive research, she came to the conclusion that without a sufficient amount of greens one cannot reach optimal health.

Greens make our body more alkaline, add fiber, and provide a wide spectrum of prime nutrients. Chlorophyll effectively aids in the healing of many human ailments. Green for Life explains why eating more green leafy vegetables can help normalize the acidity level in the stomach. Greens can give us so much energy we will actually require less sleep.

Green for Life includes 23 delicious smoothie recipes with ingredients like romaine, strawberries, and bananas, to get you started on drinking your way to a healthier life. Plus, Boutenko shares the testimonies of her research subjects who drank 1 quart of her green smoothie every day with astonishing results.


“In Green for Life, Victoria Boutenko focuses on the benefits of greens and offers 45 of her favorite green smoothie recipes.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Green for Life is a revolutionary but simple idea whose time has come. It is a clear inspiration and great resource to readers who desire to lead healthier lives.”
—Midwest Book Review

“In more than thirty-five years of practice as a psychiatrist affiliated with the Harvard Medical School, I have learned one thing very well: Human behavior is very hard to change. Now Victoria Boutenko is persuading me otherwise. … Thirty days of green smoothies will change how you feel, and how you feel about yourself. That’s no small achievement for one small book.”
—A. William Menzin, MD, Harvard Medical School, from the foreword

“Victoria Boutenko’s clear, simple, masterful concept is so valuable, so powerful—we can expect to see and feel the world of health rocked to its foundations within the decade.”
—Thomas C. Chavez, homeopath and author of Body Electronics

“Victoria, you did it again! I love your new book. It will bring health to millions, reduce future risks of degenerative diseases for new generations, and make life easier for all of us now. A must read!”
—Dr. Ruza Bodganovich, internationally renowned lecturer and author of The Cure is in the Cause

“Raw food expert Victoria Boutenko wants you to eat more leafy greens, but she knows chomping on big bunches of them can be difficult. So, in the second edition of her book Green for Life, originally published in 2005, she instead recommends blending kale, spinach, chard, and the like with different fruits and vegetables and drinking a quart of the resulting green smoothie every day... Already own the book? The new version includes nutritional information on Boutenko's favorite edible weeds (stinging nettles, dandelions, lambsquarters); testimonials from smoothie converts, who marvel at how their various ailments disappear after going green; and some 20 additional recipes for smoothies and puddings, which Boutenko perfected over six years of experimentation.”
—Vegetarian Times

“Green for Life is the book that makes the case, the proof, if you will, that green smoothies are the missing link in human nutrition… After you read the science and the amazing testimonials, you'll be itching to make your first smoothie… Few books are as ‘must-have’ as this one… 10+ out of 10.”
—The Raw Mocha Angel
“Green for Life is a book of hope and encouragement, as it shares a simple and viable way to revitalize your life.”
—Lily of the Valley

Green Smoothie Magic

Green Smoothie Magic

By Victoria Boutenko
Hardcover, 56pages
Publication date: 23 September 2013

Victoria Boutenko responds to the crisis of childhood obesity with a story that makes children excited about nutrition, healthy foods, vegetables and fruits, green smoothies, and the science of plants.

This kids' book follows young Nic as he discovers the importance of healthy eating with a plant-rich diet and learns to invent his own healthy recipes for kids.
With a pilot father and an artist mother, Nic is an inquisitive child with a fondness for magic. One day, he asks his father where trees come from and is amazed to learn they come from small acorn seeds that grow powered by the sun. His father tells him about the magical green juice, chlorophyll, in all plants. Since humans can't grow with sunlight alone and we don't make our own magical green juice, we need to eat plants to grow big and strong like the oak trees Nic is so fascinated by.

Eager to grow big and strong, Nic goes home that night determined to eat more vegetables. He's quickly disheartened when he is put off by the bitter taste of lettuce. But his mother thinks of a way to ensure he can have a tasty, healthy diet. Buying a blender the next day, she whips up some raw-food green smoothie magic. Nic is hesitant at first, but his natural curiosity wins out, and he is soon asking for seconds.
The story ends with Nic's own smoothie recipe. Combining sweet fruits with green vegetables, this kids' food recipe promises to be a favorite with children and picky eaters everywhere.


“56 fully color-illustrated pages about plant magic was easily digestible to my chapter-book-reading vegan daughter. I left it on the kitchen table, knowing she’d see it. Presto! She read it in one sitting over breakfast and when I asked her what she thought, she said ‘Three stars. [out of three] And I want to make the recipe in the back.’ Score! This book is a winner ... especially since it interests her in eating green.”
—Huyen Macmichael, reviewer for

“Green Smoothie Magic is a captivating story of an adventurous boy who learns how to be healthy in an enjoyable way. … Positive and empowering”
—Evolving Wellness

“[Green Smoothie Magic is] a wonderful kids book that serves as a response to the crisis of childhood obesity with a story that makes children excited about nutrition and healthy foods. … What I loved [about the story] is how making the smoothie involved the entire family and showed the importance of getting kids involved in making their own food.”
—Michelle Carr, blogger at Until Every Cage

Review by Zoe Frances Beauregard age 6, by Oona Johanna Meade
Last night I read Green Smoothie Magic to My 6 year old beautiful Zoe and her amazing almost 5 year old sister Nellie Lucille... Big sister Stella Rae was reading her own book in the loft space we have, but would pull away to interject her knowledge of trees. Throughout the night Zoe and Nellie both developed coughs and when they woke up in the morning they wanted to care for their bodies by drinking green smoothies. As a mother and someone whom is health oriented I have been drinking green smoothies daily for almost 5 years now, nothing is more sweet than watching your children take on the healthy habits you model as a parent. This book is a sweet addition to our lives, Thank you Victoria!

Information in Story Form, by Train Up the Child
Green Smoothie Magic is written in first person and the story is told by a six year old boy named Nic. He tells us about his family and about the day his dad told him about trees. By the end of the story his family is beginning to drink green smoothies because of what he learned about plants. This book is a very good example of giving a child information in a format that he enjoys.

A great introduction to greens for kids!, by Chelsea Johnston M.Ed.
Victoria has done it again! My kids and I were moved by this book to try a green smoothie recipe offered in the back. If you want to inspire kids to be curious about the power of eating greens, this is the book for you! Victoria Boutenko and her children have a series of books that would inspire adults and children of all ages to use green smoothies to feel as vital and strong as a mighty oak tree! The illustrations are beautifully done too!

LOVE LOVE!!! by misha2090
So good! So colorful! So encouraging! My kids love this book!! It helps them see veggies and greens in a whole new way.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an eye opener, by Phumelele Bezu
Insanely addicted to this book, it has become my food bible. Very easy to read, very easy to understand and it does not feel like I'm reading the traditional 'you going to hell if you don't eat healthy' book... I have recommended to each and every one of my friends and we are now very aware and educated as to what we put into our bodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luv this book! The recipes are great., by Shay Johnson
While this book is not in depth on the theory of eating an alkaline diet, it has delicious recipes. Everything I have made was spot on and tasted great! Nothing annoys me more than making meals based on recipes that just suck! You waste a lot of time and money on ingredients that end up down the drain.

Not so with this book. Yummy! There was some criticism about the use of some goats milk and a little goats cheese in this book. There are only a few recipes with some goats cheese sprinkled on top, you can just omit it if your vegan.

This is not a vegan book, but it is vegetarian. I think its a balanced book that anyone new to this style of eating can appreciate. It's not too extreme, there is a happy medium. There are a lot of raw food ideas, but there are also many mildly cooked recipes for people who just don't want to jump in quite that far.

I would say this book is about 80% alkaline and has about 20% acidic foods in it. Which I personally believe is a great ratio. Not everyone wants to eat 100% alkaline foods. Not only is that limiting, it is not necessary. Even if you can only eat 60% alkaline foods, you would be doing your body a great service!

I don't think you need to get caught up in the foods and all their alkaline or acid ratings. It's not just about the individual food. It is about the meal. Create meals which have lots of the nutrients necessary to promote a alkaline cellular environment, like potassium and magnesium and you will watch your energy sky rocket. (which is a good sign that things are going well!)

Great pictures, nicely laid out....I was happy to purchase this great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balance is the key, by Connie Givens (Anchorage, Alaska)
This book was written well and "Alkaline" eating presented here had a balance with it. The reminder for me is that this way of eating is NOT all or nothing that we also need some acidic foods too. The addition of feta cheese gives additional taste as wells as texture and dresses up the dish in my opinion (only a small amount is needed). I also liked the symbols with each recipe that identify high alkaline to low alkaline also "vegan" which is helpful. The finished dish pictures with the recipes was VERY helpful and in opinion a BIG plus. The recipes I made were delicious! You can see the experience of these chefs that is shared for the rest of us without that kind of training. Great book for me to learn from that teaches you to be inventive with alkaline eating! My family enjoyed the individual personalized pizzas most and really liked adding different items, broadening their usual combinations. (Probably a great way to introduce alkaline eating in small doses - smiles).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cookbook., by Moon 2 Dance 2
This is a great cookbook. I'm not a great cook but can follow recipes very well. The recipes were easy to follow and the ingredients were easy to find. The resulting edibles taste good to great and actually looked like the pictures and I like that since it makes me feel like I did it right.

I Can Make You Rich

I Can Make You Rich

By Paul McKenna
Paperback, 304pages
Publication date: 3 June 2008

Are you ready to become rich? If you've ever wondered why it is that some people find it easy to make money while others struggle, it's not because they are more intelligent, work harder or have better luck - it's simply because they think and act differently. Do you want to make more money? Do you want to improve the quality of your life? Do you believe you can be rich? What if it was easier than you think? Over the past decade, Paul McKenna PhD has made a unique study of the mindset of people rich not only in money but also in happiness and quality of life. In this groundbreaking new book, he makes use of proven psychological techniques to help you install that same rich mind-set inside yourself. Soon, you will be seeing the world in an entirely new way, thinking and living richer than ever before! In assembling this system he has had personal access to a number of the wealthiest people in the world including: Sir David Barclay, Sir Richard Branson, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, Sir Philip Green, Peter Jones, Sol Kerzner, Dame Anita Roddick. What he's learned is that making money is just a skill - but becoming rich is an art. This book will help you to develop that skill while mastering the art of living with more freedom and greater passion than ever before. If you're ready to experience the same levels of creativity, confidence and business genius as the super achievers, the system in this book can make you truly rich!

Customer Reviews

Just Can't Say Enough by Reader
How to you explain something that has had such a powerful effect on your life? McKenna reminds us that there are many kinds of "rich" and to look for the riches already in your life. It caused me to acknowledge that my life, both the rich and the not so rich aspects, were a reflection of the "wealth" I'd created. I'd been ignoring the evidence that I was a powerful manifestor! Now I'm aware and grateful everyday of what I've already created and that I'm capable of creating much more.

Do the worksheets in this book. As I did one of them, I was shocked at how much "@#%&" I STILL had about money! Old childhood programming was lurking in my subconscious - I had no idea it was even there. Listen to the CD that's included with the book. It's an opportunity to make real changes. As another reviewer wrote, the CD alone is worth the price of the book (but you've got to use it).

Program your self-set obstacles away by Karen Chung
The two main things this book offers, in my view, are (1) help getting you into the right mindset for setting up and running your own business, mainly by clearing away all kinds of negative beliefs and self-doubt you carry mostly in your subconscious; and (2) guidance through the process of drawing up a concrete, viable plan for starting a successful business you run with passion. If this is what you're after, this book is unquestionably worth the cover price and the time it will take you to read it. I'd recommend waiting until you're really serious about starting a business before listening to the CD, though, since it's quite powerful and will start working on you as soon as you listen to it. Actually, that brings me to a third thing I have gotten out of the two McKenna books I have, and actually it was this that drew me to them in the first place - and that is, explanations and demonstrations of how to harness your unconscious brain to effect life changes and facilitate learning. As an educator, I see a lot of potential in this approach, and McKenna gives real-life examples of how it can be done.

The book is printed in large, comfortable type with extra space between the lines, and the writing is very accessible, so you'll breeze through it easily - but you'll want to come back and go over parts of it carefully once you're ready to take action. McKenna also has a big online presence offering you further options to pursue his programs and connect with other readers. Recommended.

Brilliant by C M Cotton
I have read 100's of very poor books on the Success Principles, Self Esteem, Laws of Attraction, Planning, Time Management, Wealth creation etc, in the last few years. I started reading books about goal setting, mind control and success principles in 1985. I have used what I learnt from my extensive reading, coupled with academic qualifications, business and psychology experience, to create a consulting company, teaching seminars to corporations in strategic thinking, leadership, marketing, goal setting and business development. I also use the principles to help individuals, by guiding them as a Peak Performance Coach, teaching people cognitive methods to help goal set and enhance their lives beyond what they could do on their own. As such, I read as many books as I can, on a variety of subjects to enhance my knowledge.

This is the first book I have read by Mr McKenna and must admit I have always tried to avoid his books, given his TV persona. Before reading this book, I had estimated McKenna as a bit of a rip off merchant, riding on the backs of Richard Bandler and John Grinder. I bought this book, as I had read so much on the subjects McKenna writes about, without reading McKenna, as I felt I should be a bit more open minded and read his ideas.

There is no doubt that many of the ideas in the book are based upon Bandlers work. In the first half of the book, I found very few new principles. What I did like were the application of the principles for Wealth Generation. McKenna has taken NLP principles and used them to create a wealth conciousness in the reader. Brilliant and simple and easy to understand. The smug pomposity that McKenna exudes on TV does not come across in the book. I was impressed.

The second half of the book gives you ideas of how to create wealth. Again there are some clever ideas. So the book is split in 2 halves, 1st half creating the mind set using NLP techniques, 2nd half looking at ways of creating wealth. The book is very well written with lots of drawings, making the application of the principles very easy to understand. The CD that comes with the book contains NLP suggestions and is not a gimic, as I thought before buying the book..

I therefore recommend this book without any reservations at all. I have bought all the other books that McKenna has written to see if they are as good.

Oh, what a feeling!  by K. Murray
I love this book. Not only do I love the book but I love the CD as well!!
Since reading this book I have really expanded my view of the riches that I have in my life, not only financially but in all other key areas. Thank you so much to Paul McKenna for writing this great book and for giving me so many ways in which to view my true wealth and for the gratitude that I feel every day as a result of reading this book and listening to the CD. He gives practical tools to use and has a delicious, dreamy voice!!

"I Love Greens" is a charming book for toddlers about the benefits of greens. It is like "Green Smoothie Revolution" for babies!

I Love Greens as a Teaching Tool by Train Up the Child
I Love Greens points out that the animals eat greens and so do we. The animals are colorfully drawn, making this board book very inviting for a young child. I look forward to using this book as a teaching tool to not only teach the importance of eating healthy, but also animal recognition. In fact, the drawings are simple enough that the book could also be used by a little older child to learn to draw animals.

A delightful book
by Lizbeth
This is a beautifully presented book with lovely illustrations and clear recipe instructions. I am gradually working my way through the recipes and was delighted with the birthday cake, which was much admired and enjoyed!

Its well worth making the effort to obtain the ingredients as the results are terrific. The desserts are all healthy and nutritious as well as tasting good.

The cake and biscuits could be kept in the fridge for several days, which is great.

Non-vegan friends have also appreciated my efforts so a winner all round!

I didn't even know you could make healthy chocolate by Ireland Mom
This cookbook looks fantastic! I have not been able to actually make any of the recipes yet, so will update this once we have, but the actual recipes look really good, and the pictures are really nice. I purchased this because we are moving slowly to a raw vegan diet, at least for the time being, to eradicate some health issues and for permanent weight loss. My husband is begrudgingly going along with this, and one of his biggest issues with it was that he would not be able to eat chocolate. This has solved that problem, because from others I know, this type of chocolate is both healthy to consume (and actually good for you) and supposedly tastes even better than regular chocolate. We'll see... He looked through it and is drooling over some of the pictures and is eager and anxious for me to get going with some of the recipes! :)

You need to be aware though, that this requires LOTS of unusual ingredients, which are not readily available, so be prepared to spend some money initially, stocking up on them (most likely sourced online). Also, it is quite annoying to read some of the author's notes because she is clearly from a part of England where they add an "r" to many words that don't actually have one. For example, she talks about agave nectar as a sweetener, and states that it is pronounced "agar-vay", which is nonsense. The word is pronounced "aga-vay", and only those who add "r" where it doesn't belong would pronounce it the other way. She says that xylitol is pronounced "zy-ler-tol", but again...incorrect. I feel that an editor should have caught this and corrected it, because for the rest of the world who don't add the "r" in to words where it doesn't exist, this could be confusing - especially for people who are unfamiliar with these ingredients. They will then mispronounce them, possibly embarrassing themselves in front of someone else who knows how to correctly pronounce the word. I realize that this is a small point, but those sorts of things annoy me in books, so I figured I'd point it out. I will try to remember to update once we make some of these, but if I don't, assume that they are delicious if I have not changed the review to reflect otherwise...

Update - I have made some of the recipes in this book and so far they have all been fab! We've enjoyed everything in it and love that it is really healthy too!

Awesome! by Halo
I've finally received this book and it was well worth waiting for. The recipes are healthy and tasty and this home made chocolate makes huge impression on guests. Highly recommended!

About the Authour
Steve was pronounced "Sproutman" in a 1977 Vegetarian Times Magazine feature article that explored the why's and wherefores of his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Steve is still a believer in living foods and one of the most prominent spokespersons for sprouting.

Steve got interested in sprouts after a 20 year effort to correct chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic changes in diet and within two months of eating a strict "living foods," vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms disappeared. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit) and fasted for as long as 100 days.

Steve is the inventor of two home sprouters, the Flax Sprout Bag and the Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He is the author of several health and diet titles including Juice Fasting and Detoxification, Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and the forthcoming Wetter is Better and Power Juices.

Fasting is the "Elixir of Life". This book is a classic on juice fasting. It shows you how to enjoy this delicious and wonderful elixir. I have guided more than a 1,000 people through juice fasting and from now on I will be recommending this book to all the people who are fasting at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. - Gabriel Cousens M. D., Director, Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. Author, Conscious Eating and Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet.

"Fasting and detoxification are the missing links in American nutrition. They're the most important healing tools I use. Meyerowitz does a fantastic job in explaining these fundamental rejuvenating concepts for everyone to understand."- Elson Haas, M.D., author of The Detox Diet and Staying Healthy Shoppers Guide.

Steve lives and practices what he believes in. His sincerity and knowledge is evident as one peruses the pages of this very enlightening work. - Dr. John Heinerman, author of Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Healing Juices.

"Nature has carefully packaged its nutrients into the cells of fruits and vegetables. Fresh juices are the fastest route to those nutrients. Steve Meyerowitz provides a succinct guide to the art and health of using juices." - Donald W. Novey, M.D., author, Clinician's Rapid Access Guide to Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

"Dear Steve. I don't know if you remember me, I attended a workshop of yours about 12 years ago. I have long been a fan of your sprouting books including your hysterical kitchen garden cookbook. But that is not why I am writing you now. Today I am on the 22 day of fasting and I can't believe that I'm doing this. What is even more incredible is that I feel quite normal. Really, better than normal. And why I'm writing is mostly to say thank you. Your new fasting book is awesome. I've read Ehret and Airola and they're great. But yours is easily the best fasting book I've read. I always knew I needed to detoxify. But how?--that was scary for me. Your book helped me like a guide holding my hand." -  B.J. Williamson, New York, NY.

"I just want to thank you again for your books. You infuse such enthusiasm into your writing. I can feel the pages smiling at me. Your fasting book inspired me to begin my health renewal program which I can truly say is the best thing I've ever done for myself. At 48, I am more active, more alert, more flexible than my 30 year old sister-in-law. Even my memory has improved and more unbelievable, my eyesight is slightly better, too. My sister-in-law wants to know what I'm taking. "Nothing!" That's the point! It's what I'm not taking! I never even considered fasting until I landed upon your book. I stopped after achieving 50 day--a true marathon. But now I'm religious about one day a week. Please put me on your mailing list for your workshops in my area and any new book announcements. Again, a heartfelt thank you for your dedication and all the support you've given (through your writing) me." - Meloni T. Jennings, Scottsdale, AZ.

Great book for Chocolate Lovers! by Debra
I was so excited to be able to get this book. I love her blog. So let me tell you about this book. I loved it. I can't wait to get my order of raw cacao powder and nibs so I can try some of these recipes. I am thinking I will be trying some with raw carob powder- just to get me by until my order gets here.

The book has 5 chapters. The first chapter is titled Raw Basics. It covers as it says the basics but also a list of equipment needed (or enjoyed as a raw foodie), ingredient descriptions, basic recipes for nut/seed milks and raw condiments. My favorite part of this chapter is her tips. I learned a lot. My favorite tip is for doubling recipes. I double, sometimes quadruple a recipe for my large family so this was good info.

The second chapter covers Raw Chocolate. You get a brief history of chocolate and learn why it is good for you. She also covers the different raw chocolate products available and other special ingredients. Chapter three covers chocolate drinks. I can't wait to try the Creamy chocolate vanilla milk , and the Chocolate holiday spice nog.

In chapter four she covers snacks, soup, salad dressing, crackers and breakfasts. A lot of great recipes to choose from. Several popped off the page at me: Chocolate powered oatmeal, Power packed trail mix, Chocolate chia crackers, Mesquite spiced chocolate brazil nut crumble and Chia chocolate pudding snack to name a few..

In the final chapter she covers desserts. Yum! How about Goddess cream cake , Chocolate pumpkin pie, Pure rush chocolate and Fun chocolate banana plant leather. It is hard to choose just one recipe that I can't wait to try.

I learned a lot about raw chocolate. Like how it is loaded with antioxidants. I also learned that pure chocolate has heart health benefits. "The flavonoids (organic compounds) found in cacao can help prevent clogged arteries and lower blood pressure." If you love chocolate like we do and are looking for healthy vegan recipes this book will deliver! Yes it is a raw book but I believe that even if you are not a raw foodie you can benefit from getting more raw food into your diet. Besides doesn't it make you feel less guilty eating chocolate when you know it is good for you? You will not be disappointed with this book.

Guilt-Free Chocolate! by H. R. Burton
I've really enjoy all the books I've gotten from Kristen, and this one is no exception! I love the fact that I can enjoy raw desserts and chocolate and not feel guilty! Instead I feel happy about the nutritious and delicious treats. As usual, Kristen comes up with great and unusual flavor combinations - i.e. pumpkin and chocolate. Chocolate Pumpkin Pie was the first recipe I tried and it was fabulous! The Chia Chocolate Pudding Snack is one of my new favorites, too. I really like that this book isn't all desserts, but there's smoothies, milks, snacks, crackers, breakfast goodies, and more. Who knew chocolate was so versatile?! I love the recipes in this book and definitely recommend it for anyone who loves chocolate!

Must-have for healthy chocolate-eaters by A. Bittinger
This book is amazing! I love reading Kristen's raw blog and had to order this. She has a lot of unique recipes that I haven't seen anywhere else, like chocolate chia crackers or mango brownies. There are even savory recipes with chocolate in them. This woman loves her chocolate! The recipes are easy to follow and have lots of tips about food prep. Raw food is fun to make and easy when you have great books like this.

Kristen has done it again! by Tushaun
Kristen Suzanne and chocolate are truly a winning combination. Kristen brings her usual creativity to her newest book...all about the wonderful world of raw chocolate. There are many recipe books that feature raw chocolate as a dessert or smoothie ingredient, and there are a number of delicious dessert and beverage recipes in this book as well. However, Kristen takes chocolate to another level with wonderful recipes for chocolate crackers, soup, and salad dressing...all raw, all vegan, all healthy.

In the southwest, chocolate is a part of the culture. The chocolate consumed here is not milk chocolate, or chocolate-covered marshmallows, but dark, rich, almost bitter chocolate...often combined with cinnamon and chiles. I was delighted to find that Kristen includes recipes with just those ingredients...the best way to enjoy chocolate, in my opinion.

I can't wait to see what Kristen comes up with next.

LifeFood Recipe Book: Living on Life Force

This book applies life food principles to daily life. The authors explain how the LifeFood diet can strengthen the mind and body, and show how to make lotions, tinctures, and potions with food. With illustrations throughout and over 150 easy to follow recipes to maximize health and well being, this book features such dishes as Aztec Quiche, Emerald Broccoli Soup, Spicy Ginger Tofu, and Pina Colada Cookies.

Customer Review

This being one of the more niche books of the raw/living foods genre, it was not until I had been at least two years into it had I bothered to pick it up.

I was pleasantly surprised when I leafed through this gem. The recipes in here are out of this world. There are many little tidbits of information which are thrown in just for your information.

So, the beginning of the book is a preparation for your kitchen, what to have in the way of equipment and condiments that are frequently used. When that is out of the way, they jump right into the principles of what Lifefood actually is and some more information on why to choose Lifefood.

The recipe portion is quite expansive and inventive. I applaud Annie for her intuitive recipes and the massive abundance of flavour they bring to every meal. By far my favourite recipes have to be the "Sweet Thai Tomato Soup", which by the way I recommend with extra cayenne pepper, and the Teriyaki Pate, which is just fantastic on some sheets of nori with extra greens and cucumber or rolled up in a collard leaf.

The desserts are out of this world. Recipes like the "Phat Black Sorbet", which consists of dark cherries and other delectables, are just incredible and really make this book stand out.

The Lifefood fasts they outline are good and provide a solid platform for anyone to begin their experiences of purging, cleansing and fasting with. They are nutritional fasts, meaning you don't go hungry but are still giving your digestive system a rest.

The Lifefood fasts typically consist of a two week protocol where you consume only liquids (blended soups, smoothies, juices, sorbets, liquid salads and Lifefood beverages like Electrolyte Lemonade) for a period of two weeks while you do a couple liver Flushes and a couple Gallbladder flushes.

My personal experience with the Gallbladder flushes in incredible. I am so glad that I have done them. My digestion has improved immensely and my metabolism has gone up. I have already done two and am going to start the third one soon.

The other major cleanse this book outlines is a parasite flush. This regimine is an easy one that almost everyone should consider and consult their alternative healthcare practitioner (like a Licensed Accupunctureist, a Naturopath or a Chiropractor) with. I highly suggest it and have noticed great improvement since starting it.

Overall I believe that Annie Padden Jubb and David Jubb have done a wonderful job on this book. Their knowledge of recipe synergy, knowledge of colloidal physiology and overall understanding of esoteric herbalism makes me give this book a five star rating.

If you wish to get all you can out of this book, make sure you pick up David Jubb's other books "Secrets to an Alkaline Body" and "Jubb's Cell Rejuvenation - Colloidal Biology: A Symbiosis".

This may be one of the most important books you add to your library when it comes to overall understanding of your recipe choices and your health.

Living Cuisine: The Art & Spirit of Raw Foods

  • Description

By Renée Loux Underkoffler

Paperback: 512 pages

Eating raw isn't just for naturalists anymore. Today, health-conscious eaters are filling their plates with the foods nature has already prepared. And these foods go well beyond the sprouts, carrots, and celery typically associated with this type of diet.

In Living Cuisine, celebrated raw chef Renée Underkoffler shows how varied, exciting, and healthy raw-foods cuisine can be. She introduces the many benefits of eating raw and offers guidelines for incorporating this healthier regimen into one's lifestyle. She provides clear, step-by-step instructions for raw-foods processing techniques-juicing, sprouting, culturing and fermenting, dehydrating, and even blanching. This unique resource includes thorough information necessary for a foray into raw-foods living

This extensive volume provides a compendium of information on the chic raw foods movement. Underkoffler, a Maui-based restaurateur and workshop facilitator, devotes several hundred pages to descriptions of fruits, vegetables and the other essentials of a raw foods diet; the economic and social effects of eating raw foods; and the health benefits of adhering to such a diet.

There are more than 300 tantalizing recipes inspired by a wide range of ethnic and regional foods. These beverages, soups, salads, appetizers, side dishes, sushi, entrees, and desserts are all delicious and simple to prepare. Indonesian vegetable Pad Thai in Coconut Sauce, Golden Butternut Soup with Provençal Pesto, Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms and Crumble Apple Strudel Bundt Cake are all dishes that even non-raw converts might savour. Renée offers little tips to help soften the strict rules of eating raw. For example, she explains, "A wonderful secret of raw foods preparation is to serve soup in a warmed bowl. It allows the flavors to bloom a little bit more and keeps the soup warm without having to heat the soup to unhealthful temperatures upon serving." For readers who don't mind lukewarm bisque, or the significant effort that goes into preparing it, this book offers nice variety and valuable information.

For those who own a Green Power/Green Life/Green Star/Solo Star juicer, a juicer that allows one to make not only juice, but soups, crackers, pates, and pies, this book is a gem. From her opening chapter, Getting Ready to Prepare the Food to her excellent section on Food Resources, Elysa is the ultimate guide. If you've just purchaseed or about to purchase one, this book is a must. The author demonstrates her expertise by offering step-by-step instructions in the use of this equipment. She also shows how one can enjoy versatility in food preparation with this single kitchen appliance.

This creative author does not limit her abilities to juices alone. Her book has many original recipes that beckon, such as her hearty entrees. Whata Walnut Loaf, Sprouted Nori Rolls, and Sunny Broccoli-Carrot Pate. Her desserts are equally elegant with Picky Pecan Pie, Carob Mint Pie and Key Lime Parfait.

What amazed us is that with her unbridled creativity, Elysa has adapted this machine's abilities to encompass the preparation of every course a breakfast, lunch, or dinner could require.

Looking through the pages, we were dazzled by the gorgeous photography, layout design, and food styling displayed on nearly every page. Many of the photos zoom in to show fruits or vegetables that are larger than life. The colors are brilliant and display Elysa's finished dish to perfection. Our only disappointment with the book is that it lacked a standard index so necessary for quickly locating a recipe by name. Living With Green Power is an outstanding book that ought to be a companion to the Green Power/Green Life/Green Star/Solo Star juicer.

We highly recommend this book to everyone buying a Green Star & Solo Star juicer.

Longevity Now: A Comprehensive Approach to Healthy Hormones, Detoxification, Super Immunity, Reversing Calcification, and Total Rejuvenation

By David Wolfe
Hardcover, 304pages
Publication Date: 22 November 2013

By best-selling author of Superfoods and Eating for Beauty.

Lose weight, boost your immunity, cleanse your blood and organs, and live longer and happier with this comprehensive five-part approach created by leading nutrition and raw food authority David Wolfe.

In Longevity Now, Wolfe exposes the number-one cause of all degenerative illness and aging: calcification. Caused by an excess of calcium and the presence of nanobacteria, calcification can be found in some degree in virtually every adult and even some children. It leads to a plethora of illnesses and manifests as achy joints, hardened arteries, cellulite, cysts, kidney stones, gallstones, dental plaque, cataracts, and bone spurs, among many other health problems. By breaking down calcification and removing parasites, heavy metals, and other "unwanted guests" from your system, you can reverse the aging process and eliminate the prospect of degenerative disease from your future.

Part 1 of the Longevity Now Program focuses on supplements to dissolve the buildup of calcium in your system, leading to freer movement, a clearer head, and a lighter step. Part 2 focuses on boosting your immunity, using a variety of supplements to make your body as resilient as possible. Part 3 focuses on rejuvenating each and every cell of your body with nutrient-packed supplements and superfoods. Part 4 focuses on using special electromagnetic grounding technologies to eliminate parasites and reconnect you with the rhythmic cycles of Earth's energy field. Part 5 focuses on deep-tissue bodywork and yoga, so that you can move blocked energy around and break up stagnation in typically unaccessed parts of the body.

In addition to all this, Wolfe offers abundant additional information to help you more fully live the Longevity Now lifestyle, such as foods to avoid, healthful alternative sweeteners, delicious recipes, and more tips and tricks to keep you on the path of rejuvenation, radiant health, and full-throttle vitality.


“Longevity Now provides a fine, in-depth approach to healthy hormones, immunity, and system-wide rejuvenation ... Beginners to advanced health and nutrition students will find this packed with detail and keys to living not just longer, but healthier!”
—Midwest Book Review

“In today’s environment of processed foods, chemical additives, and genetically engineered products…this book gives alternatives, both ordinary and obscure, that one could use to...lead to a longer life.”

Clear and Sincere, by Sam Buck
I've been following David steady for a while now and this is a great collection of everything he's been sharing with the world for so long. Calibrating at 576 this book is full of truth valuable to most people. With terms I've never heard before like "super-drug sugars" and considerate structuring of explanation for the vegan audience I really enjoyed learning a tremendous amount from this book. David doesn't shy away from what will undoubtedly make many people re-evaluate long held attachments derived from misleading mass information. As someone who has jumped into a lot of David's recommendations, buying supplements and superfoods, this book helps detail a lot of things I didn't understand fully enough. Immediately I find myself more aware of how to effectively use these products and plants he recommends in the future. Thank you David for not only a great book but a great stepping stone for us following in your footsteps. There are well over 22 books cited for us to explore further if we are struck to do so. I'm excited to read Longevity Now at least a couple more times to continue to build a better understanding of the good words within.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, by just seeking
I love and appreciate everything this man is. This book is just like him.......full of knowledgeable, clear and usable information for the benefit of one's health.

5.0 out of 5 stars cutting edge health and nutrition information, by barry weisband

Mind Over Medicine: Heal Your Thoughts Cure Your Body

Mind Over Medicine: Heal Your Thoughts Cure Your Body

By Lissa Rankin, M.D.
Paperback, 288pages
Publication date: 1 December 2014

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERAS SEEN ON NATIONAL PUBLIC TELEVISION We've been led to believe that when we get sick, it's our genetics. Or it's just bad luck--and doctors alone hold the keys to optimal health. Therefore when Dr. Lissa Rankin's own health started to suffer, she turned to Western medical treatments, but what she found was that they not only failed to help; they made her worse. So she decided to take matters into her own hands. Through her research, Dr. Rankin discovered that the health care she had been taught to practice was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body's innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. To better understand this phenomenon, she explored peer-reviewed medical literature and found evidence that the medical establishment had been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years. Using extraordinary cases of spontaneous healing, Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter the body's physiology. She lays out the scientific data proving that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear, and anxiety damage the body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, and authentic self-expression flip on the body's self-healing processes. In this book, you'll find a radical new wellness model based on Dr. Rankin's scientific findings. Her unique six-step program will help you uncover where things might be out of whack in your life--spiritually, creatively, environmentally, nutritionally, and in your professional and personal relationships--so that you can create a customized treatment plan aimed at bolstering these health-promoting pieces of your life. You'll learn how to listen to your body's whispers before they turn to life-threatening screams that can be prevented with proper self-care, and you'll learn how to trust your inner guidance when making decisions about your health and your life. By the time you finish Mind Over Medicine, you'll have made your own Diagnosis, written your own Prescription, and created a clear action plan designed to help you make your body ripe for miracles.


What a pleasure it is to see the next generation of physicians waking up to what I call real medicine - the kind that acknowledges our true power to heal and be well.
-- Christiane Northrup, MD author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

WOW! Just wow! That is how I feel about Lissa Rankin's work! Everything she says rings so true to me, and her voice, as a professional medical doctor, is just what is needed in today's drug dependent society. Bravo, Lissa for having the courage to speak out and share your truth. This world needs more like you!
-- Anita Moorjani

In her life, her work and her words, Dr Rankin demonstrates a new way to combine the brilliance of modern science with the wisdom of the heart.
-- Martha Beck, PhD author of Finding Your Way in a Wild New World

In this elegant and exhaustively researched book Dr Lissa Rankin offers compelling evidence both that human beings are far more than an assemblage of chemicals and electrical signalling, and that that the mind is the very best drug there is. Prepare to open yourself to an entirely new paradigm of medicine, health and healing.
-- Lynne McTaggart international bestselling author of The Field, The Intention Experiment and The Bond In Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself.

Dr Lissa Rankin lays out many remarkable examples of how the mind can affect the body.

Customer Reviews

This book is a game changer for your health by Ken Jaques
My thoughts are that the material in this book truly leads us to shift our thinking about how we look at our health and illness, and REMEMBER the body's innate ability to help heal itself. It contains a wealth of information, as well as practical approaches for you to develop your own personal approach to your health and happiness. I would go so far as to suggest that this book should form part of a curriculum for students from early ages where subconscious beliefs and programming are first formed, right through to medical school. Anyone diagnosed with a health condition, anyone "worried" that they might be predisposed to a condition, or anyone simply looking to maintain their existing good health can benefit from reading this book.

Meditations on Medication by Terry MacDonald
It's never too late to change your perspective on what health and wellness means. If you read this book today, get ready for some incredible revelations. The information Dr. Rankins presents may not all be new news, but its powerfully expressed and the time is right. People, like myself and most likely anyone reading this, are searching for answers on how to live healthy and simply. The answer of course is that we have everything we need inside us it just takes an eloquent author to tell us that! A book that has helped me realize the power of self-expression to self-heal is Art and Healing by Barbara Ganim.

What makes Mind Over Medicine so different from the other books is that she provides information that is grounded in scientific study from mainstream medical journals in accessible language. She challenges the Western medicine culture without disparaging it. Instead, she advocates the power of positive thinking, proactive self-care, and seeing wellness with an open mind. I wish there was an index, but she organizes her case well into three sections:
1) Evidence of mind-body connection
2) Areas in the body where the mind can create healing, which includes the real physiology/mechanics of what goes on in the body
3) Methods to change your belief systems and habits to a personal health prescription

Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World

  • Description

Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World

By Paul Stamets
Paperback, 256 pages
Publication Date: 15 October 2005

Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how.

The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening). 

In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined “mycorestoration,” as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come.


As a physician and practitioner of integrative medicine, I find this book exciting and optimistic because it suggests new, nonharmful possibilities for solving serious problems that affect our health and the health of our environment. Paul Stamets has come up with those possibilities by observing an area of the natural world most of us have ignored. He has directed his attention to mushrooms and mycelium and has used his unique intelligence and intuition to make discoveries of great practical import. I think you will find it hard not to share the enthusiasm and passion he brings to these pages.
--From the foreword by Andrew Weil, MD, author of Eating Well for Optimum Health

“Stamets is a visionary emissary from the fungus kingdom to our world, and the message he’s brought back in this book, about the possibilities fungi hold for healing the environment, will fill you with wonder and hope.“
 --Michael Pollan, author of The Botany of Desire
“This is the kind of book I love: highly factual and practical and mixed with the spiritual content that sets the great writers apart from all the rest.“
--John Norris, former deputy commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration and founder of the Bioterrorism Institute
“This is the first book to give the Kingdom of the Fungi its proper place in the scheme of things. It is the most important book on nature that I’ve seen in years.”
--Gary Lincoff, author of National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms
“A paradigm-changing book. Stamets’s visionary insights are leading to a whole new understanding of how mushrooms, scarcely seen and rarely appreciated, regulate the earth’s ecosystems.“
--John Todd, founder and president of Ocean Arks International
“This visionary and practical book should be an instant classic in the emerging science of how to use nature’s wisdom and fecundity to rescue the earth and ourselves from the unwelcome consequences of human cleverness.“
--Amory B. Lovins, chief executive officer of Rocky Mountain Institute
“This gospel of fungi contains crucial pragmatic solutions showing us how to work with nature in order to heal nature.”
--Kenny Ausubel, founder and co-executive director of Bioneers
“In his respectful and casual way, Paul brings depth and clarity to the complexity of fungi and its place in the natural order, all the while engaging us in fungi knowledge for healing our planet.”
--Guujaaw, president of the Haida Council, Haida Nation
“Stamets’s best work to date, Mycelium Running provides a wealth of information showing how fungal mycelia and mushrooms can profoundly improve the quality of human life. Should be mandatory reading for government policy makers.”
--S. T. Chang, professor emeritus, Chinese University of Hong Kong

Super Valuable Information
By Jeff Gee

Last summer I attended one of Paul's seminars at Fungi Perfecti. Living near by it was easy to attend however I had absolutely no knowledge of mushrooms other than eating Portobellos et al., and reading a little about the possibility of plugging stumps and logs. In fact, at the seminar I felt a bit out of place amongst all of the others who had particular goals and agendas for being there. I figured a bit of education could help me understand this whole mushroom thing. When I left I was completely blown away by all of the possibilities that mycelium offer and by Fungi Perfecti's excellent presentation of this data. Most all of what Paul and his staff taught in this seminar is in this book.

This fascinating book is a treasure trove of effective low tech methods for 'running mycelium'. Paul describes everything from gardening techniques to soil restoration to health care application using typical gourmet mushrooms (oh what Oyster mushrooms can do) and many other species. As a scientist, he backs his data with reputable references. He also uses language that may be challenging to those not educated in the biological/medical sciences. However, not unlike Dr. Andrew Weil's publications, it is nearly impossible to simplify this type of information without giving all audiences from foresters to backyard gardeners to medical practitioners enough information to help everyone understand how powerful this natural filter in soil is regardless of their educational background.

Mycelium Running has very high quality color photos, detailed 'how tos' anyone can follow and specifics describing the chemistry of this powerful ally in its myriad of uses. This is a wonderful text that hopefully will assist us in restoring our battered environment and ailing health one backyard and human body at a time. For what it is worth, this is perhaps the most important and interesting book I have purchased in years. Now I have piles of card board stacked around my property successfully running all kinds of mycelium from spent mushroom kits. I expect to further the `running' using the techniques from this book to build more productive gardens and help keep Rue Creek running clean.

Because of Fungi Perfecti and Mycelium Running's superb information, I have truly become 'beshroomed'. I now go out of my way to educate friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers alike of the beneficial effects of growing better gardens, managing yard waste (instead of burning), mitigating damage by clear cut logging, cleaning up polluted soil and water ways, removing termites and ants (cannot wait to get an off the shelf solution for this!), alternative/supplemental solutions for treating disease/cancer and every day use for maintaining good health. All of this is painstakingly described in this book; simply amazing.

Paul and his staff are the type of people who do wonderful things for humanity. So wonderful, it makes me want to start a new career and open a natural healing center. Because of Mycelium Running, it would seem there is high probability of significant grassroots restoration of earth and human body. Do yourself a huge favor and spend the money to get this book; it is worth its weight in gold. Next thing you'll find is that you'll be running mycelium in some way, shape or form. It is that easy. Kudos to Paul, Dusty and FP staff for your dedication and hard work!

One of my students recommended this book and I had no idea what I was getting into. A book on fungi that I can't tear myself away from? Yes, it's true. Stamets has made mushrooms his life's work. He knows them like no one else. He presents information based on real science, yet he writes in an easy-to-follow conversational tone. And anyone with a bit of patience can grow fungi using the methods Stamets describes. The things he and his colleagues are doing with mushrooms and tree fungi will astound you. A common mushroom that eliminates diesel fuel from contaminated soil! A tree fungus that out-competes (controls)American Chestnut blight! Erosion control, sewage treatment, enhancing forest health and human health... the list is long and truly inspiring. I am eager for warmer weather so I can get outside and start my own experiments with fungi. And perhaps best of all is the fact that most of these incredibly useful organisms are also edible gourmet delights! This is my first book by Paul Stamets. I am now ready to buy his earlier works (as well as a good field guide to mushrooms and other fungi).

The most comprehensive mushroom/fungi book out there
By Michael Afentoulis

Paul Stamets truly knows the material and has some great insights into the world of growing mushrooms. He succinctly describes how the science of the relatively unknown 5th kingdom (fungi) can be applied to mycoremediation to help unpollute the planet. Even though this sounds like a heavy subject, the material is understandable for people with little scientific or fungal knowledge and helps anybody understand hwo they too can get closer to mushrooms.

Oxygen to the Rescue: Oxygen Therapies and How They Help Overcome Disease, Promote Repair and Improve Overall Function

By Pavel Yutsis
Paperback, 224pages
Publication date: 27 January 2006

Throughout the world -- in China, Japan, Cuba, Canada, Russia, and most of Europe -- healing therapies using oxygen, ozone, and hydrogen peroxide have been common for treating a wide array of diseases, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, and arthritis. Yet in the United States, where the mainstream medical community is dependent upon funding from the pharmaceutical industry for research and physician training, these highly efficacious and relatively inexpensive therapies have been largely ignored. Dr. Pavel Yutsis, Medical Director of the CAM Institute for Integrative Therapies, has been using these biooxidative techniques for more than twenty years, from the beginning of his career in his native Russia. In Oxygen to the Rescue, Dr. Yutsis explains the difference between oxygenation and oxidation. He describes the four main types of oxygen therapy: -- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) -- Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy -- Ozone Therapy -- Photoluminescence -- or ultraviolet radiation of blood (UVIB), and discusses conventional uses versus experimental/controversial uses for each, as well as the means of administering these therapies.For example, HBOT is typically used by mainstream medicine to promote healing of burns and skin grafts, as well as to treat carbon dioxide poisoning and smoke inhalation. Hydrogen peroxide delivers oxygen to the blood and makes it possible for the body to use oxygen more effectively. It regulates sugar, enhances immune system function, and helps cells produce energy. Oxygen to the Rescue provides both the findings of scientific research and anecdotal evidence demonstrating that these underused therapies deserve to be acknowledged among frontline medicine in the UnitedStates.

GREAT BOOK, by L. Garcia -
My friend gave this book back in 20011. After reading this book and ordered 35% H2o2 from Amazon from a company name THE ONE MINUTE MIRACLE. The product is amazing how it works and it's amazing the thing it cures. Since I been using this product I feel great.

You need to make sure you only buy this product from a real company and not from people trying to sell not the real stuff. I suggest everyone to buy this book and to order from the company I mentioned above. They really have a great product and also a super good customer service.

Thank you to both Oxygen To The Rescue and to The One Minute Miracle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxygen To the Rescue, by Michael Monji "Tree Whisperer" (Bakersfield, CA)
Oxygen is the key to life, and without enough of it in your body you will get sick. In order to stay healthy your saliva pH has to be
7.2-7.4 on a daily basis. This was confirmed in 1931 when Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel in Medicine for the discovery for the cause of cancer.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this book because it's a very important topic, by pedrilo
I recommend this book because it's a very important topic, Paul Harch's book covers more ground, though both books are highly recommended.

Hbot and ketogenic combined is probably the most powerful protocol for anyone struggling with dis-ease,
Makes my list of most important topics/books on health.

Quantum Eating - The Ultimate Elixir of Youth

  • Description

By Tonya Zavasta

Paperback - 453 pages

When a beautiful young girl turns your head—Wow! When a radiant fifty years young woman turns back the clock—How?

Here are the ready-to-use secrets on acquiring superior health and a youthful glow, while avoiding the unattractiveness of aging.

Quantum Eating is the gate to health and longevity. Questions about aging which have baffled thinkers and scientists for centuries are answered in clear, straight talk mingled with attainability and hope. This truly mind-energizing book is filled with fresh insights that challenge our most basic assumptions.   

This book addresses vital, fascinating topics: the quantum body we occupy…raw foods as concentrated sun energy…the circadian rhythms of vital organs…should we sun-block the sunlight?…breathing for optimum weight…oxygen therapies…and many more. It explains how you can be malnourished while eating a lot of healthy foods, how you can be dehydrated while drinking a lot of water, how you can be shortening your life by using certain supplements and how you can be aging your body by eating at night. This book is candid, intimate, and intellectually illuminating—on the very edge of new science.

Quantum Eating exposes the limits of the mechanical thinking and materialism that dominate most modern anti-aging research. Quantum Eating is about stepping away from a three-dimensional view of the human body and into the multi-dimensional world of healing possibilities. It offers rare optimism about aging. An easy, natural “elixir of youth” can be achieved without being a slave to traditional medicine.

Life is a grand adventure. This book offers a way for us to reach for an optimum level of well-being in order to live the grandest life we can. Pour these new ideas into the chalice of your life, and watch it overflow with pure joy and vitality!

"Dear Tonya,
Congratulations on your book! I couldn't put it down, it's revolutionary, brave, radical, and well-written!"-
Victoria Boutenko, author of 12 Steps to Raw Foods and Green for Life

"Tonya, I want to say how much I loved your book: this is by far the best of your books! I am amazed at your ability to use wit, humor, and word plays in English though it is not your native tongue. Most of all, I really thought there was not much else for me to learn about raw eating! But I got a real paradigm shift from your writing about 'heavy water.'  You have indeed dared my husband and I to take this raw diet to a higher level!!!"-
Susan Schenck, author of The Live Food Factor

"Wow! Quantum Eating is amazing! One of the best books on raw foods and living life simply and most healthfully. You are a sheer genius. I am recommending Quantum Eating to absolutely everyone. Congratulations on your research and insights! Would it be alright if I quote you on a couple of things, like the circadian rhythms and perhaps dry fasting?"- Karen Ranzi, author of Creating Healthy Children

 I have been glued to your new book! I have read your first two books as well. This new one is sooo cutting edge! I don't want it to end and will read again when I finish. I have been about 95% raw for about 2 years and I guess have not gone completely 100% because I am still cooking for my family. Your writings have been such an inspiration to me and I really sense your passion for this lifestyle. I am excited to start implementing what I have learned from Quantum eating!- Marissa Valdez

I just finished reading "Quantum Eating," and am now re-reading it out of sheer fascination with the quality of information there.  It is truly a masterwork with intriguing ideas and should be required reading for every raw-fooder out there. I found the caliber of your information outstanding and of great use. So many raw-food books repeat things that most of us already know. But your book repeatedly broke new ground. - Starr Spencer

Amazing Results So Far, by CurrencyChick
I had such a profound experience after listening to a process Michelle did on a call that I decided to buy the book. I have done many clearing statements, but this addressed so many different aspects of an issue that I wanted to try it. The book gives you the ENTIRE process, I don't know many teachers that are willing to offer this. I had a list of possible blocks to success that she talked about on her call and I wrote them down. This week I have been doing 2 per day. The results are that my productivity has increased 1000 fold. I feel excited again, my creativity is through the roof, and I have been able to take action on these ideas. Before I would get the idea and then had a hard time moving forward, I would be stuck and this created a viscous cycle of self sabotage. I feel the cycle is being broken. I have been working on this for years, and I am so grateful to be moving onward and upward!

Absolutely brilliant, by Lee Heather
I have brought literally dozens of books from amazon over the years but have never gotten around to writing a review - however this time I decided that this book would be an exception. It's quite brilliant. I am a professional counselor and am always looking at different methods of personal development and have come across a lot during my years of counselling. This process is simple and powerful. I have used it on myself a dozen or so times since buying the book and it worked wonderfully well. I would say that it is better for people who have some basic spiritual knowledge to begin with or it may seem too 'new age' for the masses but never the less it works so well and I have recommended it to my spiritually inclined friends. Easily five stars. Hard to fault. Using this technique you could easily change major aspects of your life in a fairly short time. If I could ask for any improvements in the book it would be to include a little more information about changing beliefs around finance and money but this is being somewhat pedantic. Great book.

The most amazing books I have read!!! 10 stars, by Phoenix (Great State Of Maine)
I bought this for my IPad, read thru the book and proceeded to do the exercises with absolutely amazing results! The concepts in the book are explained in a way that I understood why I needed to do them. So often we are told to do something "this way" without explaining why and often the results are minimal or we go on with more questions that before. I will reread again and again and continue to do the exercises until I need to do them no more. I am totally impressed with this book and can't wait for more from this author!

Get this book if you want to break free of patterns that keep repeating, by Laura Steward
I had the pleasure of working with the author 1-1 and then read her book. It is rare to read a book that actually gives you all the steps you need to do the work the author guides you through when you work directly with her. Manning-Kogler stands out in the crowd with this book for her gift to all those who cannot, for whatever reason, afford or have the time to work with her directly.

If you cannot understand why you are unable to move forward in a specific area of your life, this book shows you it may be something that requires more than just willpower. The author takes you step by step through an easy to implement process that will release you from whatever may be stopping you. I have always thought that all it took was setting your mind to something and you can move forward. Working with Michelle directly and then via her book showed me that it really doesn't have to be as hard as we often make it and that sometimes there is more to what is stopping us than willpower alone can overcome.

Using her Quantum Soul Clearing process has enabled me to have more peace, more abundance and opened more possibility in my life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling or anyone who just wants a life filled with more abundance and ease.

Quantum-Touch 2.0 - The New Human: Discovering and Becoming

By Richard Gordon & Vickie Wickhorst
Hardback, 216pages
Publication date: 18 February 2013

"Quantum-Touch 2.0--The New Human" endeavors to significantly enlarge the possibilities of what humans can be and do. In clear, step-by-step instructions, the reader will learn to easily demonstrate that human limits are as yet unknown. Readers can learn to do healing on multiple people at once to reduce their pain in minutes, work on multiple conditions at once, help people shift their own beliefs with the use of energy, and work across time and space. Readers will even learn to safely and visibly adjust the posture of multiple people simultaneously without touching. Science assumes that we are separate, and that our thoughts don't affect the outer reality. This notion is something that each of us can now clearly demonstrate to be untrue. The originator of the Quantum-Touch energy healing method and a popular workshop leader and speaker at conferences and holistic health institutes, Richard Gordon has been developing and refining Quantum-Touch since the publication of his best-selling "Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal." Gordon shares his discoveries in this new book, which takes Quantum-Touch to a far more powerful level. To enrich the book with scientific insights and commentary, Gordon sought out coauthors Vickie Wickhorst, PhD, and Chris Duffield, PhD. As academics investigating the convergence of science, technology, and the power of the human energy field, Wickhorst and Duffield serve as perfect guides to help readers, even skeptical ones, uncover their own process of discovery. This book is a must for all world travelers!


"Quantum-Touch 2.0 is probably the most important new publication in the world—a life-transforming book that changes everything."

“QT2 can change the world and how we look at everything. This is empowering and paradigm changing. Not only can I do this—I am this.”
Allan Sachey, DDS
“Quantum-Touch 2.0 is real healing! This book will change the world. It brings hope for humanity to thrive and not just survive. I am integrating this work as a new protocol in my practice.”
Prudence Hall, MD
“Quantum-Touch 2.0 is true energy medicine. This technique is cutting-edge, and it is easy to learn. I have seen it produce immediate results. Once this information goes global we will experience a major decline in all health challenges.”
Howard Elkin, MD
“QT2 is an exciting voyage of discovery. Prepare yourself for miracles!”
––Dawson Church, PhD
“Quantum-Touch 2.0 is brilliant and a must-read! The techniques are simple and effective. The results are profound. Richard’s vision of the future is thrilling, and sure to have worldwide impact.”
––Linda Steele, PhD, Clinical Psychologist
“This groundbreaking book provides a beautiful and simple technique that truly heals people. Quantum-Touch 2.0—The New Human teaches us invaluable information about our natural human abilities and powers at a time when humankind needs it most.”

Am I prejudiced? by Cris on
You may consider me prejudiced because I'm a Quantum-Touch Level I instructor. But I'm not prejudiced and I'll tell you why I'm not. I'm an instructor because doing the simple and powerful techniques has so far helped me to eliminate 5 of the 7 medications that I was on. (I'm on half-doses of the last 2 and intend to eliminate them as well while under my doctor's care.) I'm an instructor because this stuff works and I want everyone to know about it. I'm an accountant in my day job and I teach QT LI workshops in my "spare time" because I want everyone to know that they can feel better, too.

I took this workshop in 2011 with Richard Gordon and was further blown away with Quantum-Touch Level II. Again, the techniques are still so simple that anyone can learn and so powerful that everyone can be successful. I'll say it too, "Wow, wow, wow!" Get the book, practice the exercises, and prepare to be astounded at what's possible.

One of the BEST books to read and keep EVER!! by Anna
I would give this book 50 stars instead of 5 if I could! :)

If you are interested in improving your health (physical, mental, emotional), changing your life to make it more exciting and full, discovering your amazing hidden abilities that we ALL have, this book is for YOU! This book might be the best investment you will ever make in your life!

I've been studying and working with subtle energies for over 20 years, but the first Richard's book "Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal" and this one "QT2" for me are by FAR the most powerful in terms of getting miraculous results! Richard's techniques are so simple to learn and yet so powerful!!!

Here is what separates QT books from others on energy healing subject:
1) You don't have to have any special abilities! NONE!
2) You don't need to be even slightly familiar with energy or alternative healing AT ALL!
3) You don't have to believe in "all this weird stuff" WHAT SO EVER! If you are a skeptic, it's even better!
4) You can and SHOULD prove to YOURSELF that this works! And you can start getting results very quickly. All you need to do is to read the book and follow the instructions! Yes, this is very easy and simple, but the results can and SHOULD blow you away!
5) It is very easy and fun to read and very enjoyable to follow the instructions! And it WORKS!

This is THE BEST "HOW TO" book on energy healing and empowering yourself with knowledge and tools for living much healthier, more exciting, and richer life.

I also highly recommend to read his first book "Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal" where you can get better understanding of the "basics." The techniques in the first book are incredibly powerful! But don't be fooled by the word "basics." You will learn and discover a LOT in that book! And it WORKS!:) Enjoy!!

Wow by Kindle Customer
This book is utterly amazing. I have studied the concept of energy healing for about fifteen years or so. I have read many books on the subject. I have been going thru a very crucial period in my own life for the last 13 months so I was really ready for this book and what it offers. I have used it for a little more than one day and already had some really fascinating results. I can barely put it down. I am sure I will continue to reread and explore. Thank you Richard.

UPDATE: After using this with some pretty good success for awhile now, I have an opinion as to what may possibly be happening. The energy of the heart is a NOW moment. The pain, blockage, stiffness, etc. is stored in the body with a link to a past/future moment. If the body is really made of the NOW moment love energy, then linking a place where there is a confused signal back to its pure connection is like a reset. Much like rebooting a computer to refresh its function, re-establishing the harmony is like reminding a sore spot, "hey, you are not the painful confusion, but rather, you are this pure power...simple, yet profound, when one allows it.

I understand the idea of running energy, but when applying it to myself, I kept tripping over the actions. To me, if we really are at our core this magical energy, then what am I doing the "sending part" for. However obscure, isn't the heart energy already there at the intended spot? So instead, when working with myself, I get as centered in the heart energy as I can and use the idea of a color, whatever surfaces at the moment, then I turn my focus to the intention and the place I perceive as blocked, etc. In observation, the sheer hint of color will appear there to as I send my love. It works for me.

Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

The Nine Factors That Can Make a Real Difference - Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

By Kelly A Turner

Hardcover, 288 pages, 8 May 2014 or CD Audio Book, 1 July 2014, 9 hours & 22 minutes

Discover the nine keys that can unlock your pathway to dramatic healing.Kelly Turner, Ph.D., a researcher and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology, gives the reader the results of her research on over a thousand cases of Radical Remission--people who have defied a serious or even terminal cancer diagnosis with a complete reversal of the disease. The results of this study, which focused on seventy-five factors, include astounding insights of the nine key factors that Dr. Turner found among nearly every Radical Remission survivor she has studied and an explanation of how the reader can put these practices to work in his or her own life.Every chapter of Radical Remission includes dramatic stories of survivors' journeys back to wellness. The realization that the possibilities for healing are more abundant than we had previously known gives people concrete ways to defy the overwhelming prognosis of terminal cancer. This is a book for those who are in the midst of receiving conventional cancer treatment, who are looking for other options because that treatment has done all that it can, or who seemingly have no options left but still feel that the future holds the possibility of hope.Kelly Turner's Radical Remission shows that it is possible to triumph over cancer, even in situations that seem hopeless. Encompassing diet, stress, emotions, spirituality, and other factors that profoundly affect our health and well-being, Turner's discussion of how our choices can cause the seemingly miraculous to happen will open your eyes to what is possible when it comes to lasting healing.

An important book for all cancer patients. Radical Remission is filled with hope, science and possibilities. (Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author)

Never before has anyone with Dr. Turner’s credentials dared to research the million dollar question: why do some patients get better from seemingly “incurable” illnesses? Dr. Turner has uncovered the holy grail those who want to optimize their chances for cure have been seeking. Bravo, Dr. Turner! (Lissa Rankin, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine & host of the National Public Television special Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine)

This book is filled with important information for everyone, whether struggling with cancer or not. She is giving the world a gift at such an important time as so many are feeling like they can’t take their lives into their own hands. Kelly empowers us all to do exactly that. (Colleen Saidman, cofounder and codirector of Yoga Shanti)

Kelly Turner delivers the message people addressing cancer -- or seeking to prevent it -- need to hear. Turner’s book gives you the support you need -- from science, tradition, and common sense -- to make powerful lifestyle changes that will tip the scales in your favor. (Pamela Miles)

“Radical Remission is a treasure trove of BIG TRUTH about the incredible healing power available to each and every one of us!” (Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the ,New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause)

“Radical Remission shows how we can shift the odds of remission in our favor. What I like most about this book is balance. Turner does not ask anyone to abandon conventional therapy, but instructs us on how to add healing factors that are often overlooked.” (Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters)

Radical Remission is a personal and deeply moving exploration of the power of the human spirit and innate wisdom of the body to overcome catastrophic illness. Persons with cancer and their families and friends will find it especially helpful. (Andrew Weil, M.D.)

Kelly Turner is studying phenomena that is the very research and story sharing that will step us forward into solving the cancer plague. Kelly Turner writes as an accomplished scientist and as a compassionate human being to inspire us to question deeply the roots of our illnesses. (Rodney Yee, author of Moving Toward Balance)

Customer Reviews

A very important book and a very important mission
By Kelley Eidem

As the author of the book "The Doctor Who Cures Cancer," I believe "Radical Remissions is a big step forward towards creating critical mass. Turner points out in her book that not one doctor she asked who had personally witnessed a Radical Remission had tried to publish the case as a classic case study. She also points out that there are over 1,000 reports of "spontaneous remissions" that have been reported in the medical literature, but that they weren't being pursued by researchers as to the commonalities among them. Turner has done that!

She asked the right questions, "Why did each of these people experience a spontaneous remission? What it spontaneous or was it something they did?" She found out that their remissions were due to something they did.

Turner also highlights how it is by focusing on the anomalies that new discoveries are made. Whether it be Dr. Revici's discoveries, the discovery of penicillin, etc, it is almost always in the exceptional case where the discovery is made. The book then goes forth to expand on the 9 biggest commonalities that she uncovered so that cancer patients can try them for themselves.

Turner continues to collect more cases to help verify her findings. In her book, she calls her findings a hypothesis. She wants to see more attention devoted to her data to confirm and expand her findings. We can be sure that the cancer industry will close ranks and not follow through on Turner's goal just as they have for the past 100 years. But the book and her continued mission is a GIGANTIC step towards greater awareness about the real ways to cure cancer.

Finally a book which uses research which supports non-medical invasive cures
By Christopher Steele

As someone who is always interested in alternative remedies outside of medicine, I purchased this book in hopes to learn more about the subject. The book was so much more than I expected in that not only was it well researched, but was written in such a way that it did not feel like an academic reading. Highly recommend.

A Treasury of Inspiration
By Paxdieta Books

RADICAL REMISSION shows that true healing often involves more than medical treatments.
Kelly Turner shows that transformation of the mind, the heart, the emotions, nutrition
and relationships are also essential. Her book contains a treasury of inspiring stories
and clear analysis, showing that inner transformation can produce positive changes
leading to true healing for body, mind and spirit. Recommended for all readers interested
in personal growth and development, not just cancer patients!

Published In:  United States, 17 November 2003

Because of our acid-producing diets, environmental pollution, antibiotics, excess oestrogen in the environment, and personal and world stress, candida and fungal infections are rampant today. Medical researchers have found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet, combined with environmental pollutants and stress, can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body collectively known as chronic degenerative disease. Here holistic physician Gabriel Cousens provides a dietary regimen that may help reverse this process by introducing whole, natural, organic, and raw foods into the diet. These restorative "live" foods can eliminate dangerous toxins, reverse chronic disease and bring back health and vitality.

Rainbow Green Cuisine presents the first sophisticated, gourmet international cuisine to be based on highly edible natural organic live food, along with a relatively low-sugar and low-mycotoxic approach.

This eclectic cookbook shares 250 delicious vegan recipes from chefs at the Tree of Life Cafe. Dishes include Avocado Salad with Rosemary, Green Dragon Broccoli, Raw-violis, Lavender Milk, and Carob Coconut Cream Eclairs. International entrees, juices, and aromatherapeutic remedies are also featured.


"Gabriel Cousens, M.D., has once again contributed to the much-needed re-education of humanity. The research and practical advice, along with the recipes from the Tree of Life Cafe in Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine, help people awaken to a new understanding and regain control of their internal environment."

A Chocolate Work of Art! by M. Falso (Los Angeles, California)
This book is beautifully written, photographed and inspiring. It's edgy and modern, with sophistication and flair. There are so many creative recipes and wonderful gourmet flavor combinations. I really appreciate the stunning photography and modern flavorings of these chocolate confections. I'm also glad that there are other chocolate-inspired recipes that are beyond the bonbons, bars, buttercups and truffles (for instance, fudges, marzipan, gianduja, buckwheat nib cereal, smoothies, and drinks, just to name a few). I'm excited to try many of these creations.

Personally, I was so happy to see a recipe for white chocolate! I've made 3 recipes from the book and they have all turned out better than expected. My only issue with any of the recipes thus far is the white chocolate base. While the flavor is spot on, the use of coconut flour in the chocolate makes for a very gritty texture. However, I like it so much that I continue to make it regardless.

My only issue with this classic book is that there are some gaps in information about ingredients, for instance, like chocolate liquor/paste. I personally know what it is and how to use it, there is no explanation for what it is, how to use it, and why to use it. Another part that is missing from this book is actual processing of the raw chocolate and how it is made, especially raw cocoa butter, raw cocoa powder, and the raw cocoa bean.I know that it is not the intent of the book to show you how to make chocolate from bean to bar, but it would really make the book a more complete all-around raw chocolate book. This does not detract from this beautiful book, but I believe it would only benefit the inclusion of this information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed at success of recipes, by Kibster
My friends now think I'm a raw chocolate chef! These recipes make it easy. While this isn't a beginner's book,I found the recipes straightforward and easy to follow. (The best part about working with raw chocolate is that you can always eat your "mistakes"). The only thing I wished for was a product source list; I did have a little trouble at first finding some of the ingredients.

Overall: fun book, fun recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valentine's Day Goes Raw, by vickiechip
This excellent entry in the authors' series of raw books is a Valentine's Day must. The raw chocolate bon bons are beautiful. Who knew what could be done w/ Cacao Paste. One point to make is the authors don't provide a source for that product but no matter, your local Whole Foods or Earth Fare have it in stock. It's not as exotic as it sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC BOOK!!, by rwfdie
I love everything about this book! The pics are beautiful and so inspiring. The recipes range from simple to more
challenging-(Fudge to bon bons) and directions are spot on. Such an ode to chocolate.
HUGE VARIETY!!! Thank you for making this book!!!

Presenting her family's most treasured dishes with easy instructions and hundreds of photographs, Victoria walks budding chefs through every step of preparation with encouragement and enthusiasm. Mouthwatering recipes include jams,scones, soup, crackers, nut milk, truffles, chocolate cake, and more.

Victoria Boutenko and her family are known worldwide as the Raw Family, living on a raw diet and teaching classes since 1994. Throughout the years they have perfected scores of scrumptious recipes with the idea of not only spreading the gospel of the diet’s health benefits, but also making the raw foods lifestyle realistically possible and enjoyable.

Mouth-watering rather than medicinal, simple rather than complicated, the recipes presented here include jams, scones, soup, crackers, nut milk, truffles, chocolate cake, mousse cake, and more. Complete, illustrated directions make it simple for both avid raw foodists and novice cooks alike to embrace the diet favored by Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, Donna Karan, and other celebrities.

Customer Reviews

Read it in one sitting, couldn't put it down! by Melanie
I've read quite a bit lately on raw foods, and this book is different from them all. I finished it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. The Boutenko's welcome us into their lives and share their journey from dire illness to raw foods as a family.

Written in such a way that each family member's voice is included, this book chronicles their introduction to raw foods in 1994 when Sergei, then in 3rd grade, was diagnosed with "incurable" juvenile diabetes. Following her instincts, his mother Victoria refused to put him on insulin, instead beginning to research the effects of diet on health.

Amazingly, the whole family went raw together a short time afterward, and this story includes all the thoughts and feelings, all the changes they experienced as a result of their live food diet. Reading it does something that other more technical raw food manuals and cookbooks cannot do: it allows the reader to actually see what life might be like as a raw fooder.

Though the Boutenko's and their children were experiencing health problems due to their diet and lifestyle which strongly influenced their desire to go raw and encouraged them to stick with it, their story offers hope that making the transition with older children is indeed possible.
This is an inspiring book, and it includes a small recipe section and some before and after photographs of the family. A gem!

Excellent book by "jonkatzlawyer"
This is an excellent book for inspiring people to try a raw foods diet. Excellent prose are not needed to accomplish this; all that's needed is the heartfelt words of the authors. Here's the benefit I've derived from this book and the Boutenko family: After 13 years as a vegetarian (usually at least 10 pounds overweight the whole vegetarian time - rarely overweight that much before becoming a vegetarian, except for the year before), the most effective route for me has been the 100% raw foods route. I've lost ten pounds in 15 days on this diet, and plan to stay with it to shed several more overweight pounds. I include 3-4 times of 1/2 hour - 1 hour of exercise (Stairmaster, t'ai chi, one round of weights minimum every other day). I had the benefit of being convinced to try this raw foods diet without intent when (1) meeting the Boutenko raw family and (2) knowing a trustworthy acquaintance who knows well and vouches for the reliability of the Boutenko's claims (e.g., that the mom shed away her 280 lb. frame on raw, her son lost his juvenile diabetes, her husband lost his serious thyroid condition, and her daughter lost her asthma). I'm doing a simple raw diet. To make it easier to eat raw all day rather than going frustrated with a lack of time or recipes, I have not used any machinery (juicers, dehydrators, blenders, food processors). Besides, summer is a great time for an abundance of delicious raw foods at reasonable prices (including tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, bananas (year round), the broccoli family, summer fruits (melons, plums, nectarines). In colder weather, there remain numerous vegetables, citrus (I eat citrus daily), dried fruits, winter fruits, raw nuts, and transported tropical fruits. In this short time, I'm feeling better overall. My body feels cleaner. I don't feel the sniffles that I often had a few times a week for at least an hour. My cravings for un-raw food are slim to none. Jon Katz,

Awaken Yourself and Those You Love by Surya Peralta
I love this book. I found it inspiring, truthful, concise, and obviously born of a mothers love. My husband, a lifelong meat-and-potatoes man, read this book and literally became a raw foodist overnight. This book taught him in one read what I had been unable to in 7 years. This book very well may inspire you and your family to become healthy, happy, and harmonious. Beautifully sincere and possibly life altering book!

A Little Treasure by Marjorie Roswell
This book is a treasure. First of all, it's just a good read: It's an engaging narrative with a good story behind it. Secondly, it'll make you smile. Thirdly the few recipes in this book are AWESOME, especially the generic salad dressing. Fourthly, the book is a fast read. Finally, this book is a story of transformation (Four transformations, actually: in mom, dad, son and daughter) that can inspire us on our own path to health.

Raw food is more than a diet. It’s a lifestyle and a movement. The stories of weight loss, increased energy, healthy-looking skin, and better digestion are seemingly endless.

No one should have to sacrifice time, money, or flavor to enjoy the astounding health advantages of going raw.

From creative salads to spicy burritos to chocolate mousse, every recipe will broaden your raw-food horizons.

Customer Reviews

"I received this book in eager anticipation and was not disappointed. I have found the recipes in this book delicious and satisfying. Green Beauty and Pico de Gallo are just a few of my favorites. I can make the Chia Custard Shake and feel totally full when I need something in the middle of the day. Ruby's Smokin' Hot Tomato Soup is so good. Wonderful book. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to incorporate healthy and tasty alternatives to their diet." SaderMom

"Penni Shelton has created this wonderful book, in part, through the experience of real people in real life following her program. And I have to say, I think that alone makes it an excellent resource for raw food info ... because we're all looking for real results. Penni's writing style is also warm and encouraging ... she's just a delightful and inspiring writer.

This book is organized around 3, 7, 14 and 28 day cleanses. But in this case, a "cleanse" is neither harsh nor strict with so many raw food recipes. The recipes are easy to follow and the dishes are visually stunning and delicious.

I really enjoyed the real life stories of people who've already done this program. They're genuine and open in telling about the changes that have happened in their health and their lives after following this way of eating and living.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a genuine and uncomplicated introduction to the amazing health benefits a raw food lifestyle can help create." Lisa Viger

"The Raw Food Cleanse is an easy guide for anyone who is interested in upping their health game which features a test group of people who actually participated in a trial cleanse. The information is clear and encouraging for newbies to the raw movement as well as seasoned followers. There are juice feasts of various lengths so you can test the waters or dive in for a long term fast. In any case, there are a multitude of delicious recipes to create for during your fast and a bevy of taste titillating recipes for post cleanse. I have alot of raw food recipe books and the recipes in this book are not overwhelming as some of the books I have. Even if you are not gung ho about cleansing I would recommend it merely for the recipes. It is the perfect affordable choice for anyone who wants to increase their intake of fruits and vegetables in a easy yummy creative way!!"  A. Harper

Jennifer Cornbleet is a nationally recognized raw food chef and instructor, and a faculty instructor at the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. She offers classes, hands-on workshops, and consultations nationwide. Her first book, Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People, has already sold over 100,000 copies. A companion DVD, Raw Food Made Easy, is also available. Her second book, Raw For Dessert, provides recipes for delicious cakes, cookies, pies, tarts, ice creams, and candies.

Customer Reviews

As the author of a raw food book myself, I have read nearly every raw book out there. The great thing about Jennifer's book is the simplicity of her recipes. I can whip up one of her dishes in ten to twenty minutes (depending on my familiarity with it) and often that includes the clean up time.

In this book, each recipe has a handy listing of ingredients, a list of equipment necessary, and an "ahead of time" section. Many times I have decided to make a recipe when I realized I couldn't do it because I was supposed to have sprouted some seeds or soaked some nuts overnight. With this recipe book, we are warned of what preparation should be made ahead of time.

At the beginning of the book is a handy listing of ingredients to have handy at all times in your cupboard. These range from the norm (ex: spices) to the obscure (ex: agar flakes, a vegetarian substitute for gelatin). There is also a list of kitchen equipment, serving ware, and even techniques (ex: tips on how to open a coconut and cut certain fruits).

Jennifer starts out giving recipes for the "basics." These are items that will later combine in different recipes and include yummy frostings and creams (such as "Vanilla Cashew Cream"), sauces (like "Caramel Sauce", and crusts (like "Chocolate Cookie Crust"). Next comes a chapter for each of the following categories of desserts: fruit desserts; sorbets, ice creams and sundaes; cakes, cookies and bars; pies and tarts; creamy desserts; and candy. There are stunning colored photos sprinkled throughout to motivate us to get going!

People who have little experience eating raw will be amazed: These recipes will make their cooked counterparts seem so tame.

I just made the spice cake with vanilla cashew cream for a topping, a huge hit with my husband. I can't wait to make the key lime tart, coffee ice cream, chocolate candy cups, pine nut caramels and summer fruit trifle. The monthly raw food potluck group is going to love me!
You don't have to be a vegan to love this book. I LOVE it because we camp and backpack a lot and like making desserts that require no cooking.

The nice thing about the book is it has a huge variety of all season desserts, that even a non vegan would like. Love how the author begins on page 4 by listing all the ingredients that will be listed somewhere in the recipes, which allows a person to plan well for future dessert making. Starting on page 7 the equipment needed is listed and explained. The only thing I would have liked would have been substitutes that could be used. Like with a blender. Someone could invest in a food processor and use their blender blade, and a food processor is a multi use machine that takes up less kitchen space. And a food processor with a variety of blades can also do the job of a mandoline. A mandoline can be a tad pricey if you want one that will last.

And while I did invest in an Excalibur dehydrator, one need not buy a food dehydrator, since a mesh cookie cooler rack set on the oven rack and the temp set at 200* can dry food slow over night or all day. Same with page 10 where she says for dish's that one needs plates that are white and of various sizes. Use whatever plates you have .While I have no problem acquiring items like Agar flakes, agave syrup, carob powder, rose water,spy lecithin powder, and whole vanilla beans, some people in more rural areas or those without access to health food and natural food sections may have more difficulty.

The Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting on page 74-75 was excellent. The Jumble Berry Upside Down cake on page 72 is great since you can use pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, which makes this a very in season dessert. Try the Ginger Spice cookies on page 81 are cookies kids and adults would love.

Kate Wood is a shinning star in the world of Raw Food. In this her fourth book she is concentrating on the use of superfoods in her recipes.


This book is soooo lush in its color photography and whimsical nature I just cannot help smiling! I have not yet tried the recipes but if they are as good as her other books you will be charmed!

The book is a perfect size with very clear to read recipes. There is a colour photo for EVERY recipe!!!

This book as well as her others are very different from the typical American raw food book. Being from the U.K. there is an entire different feeling to her books where American raw books (I have over 30) are often repeats of a theme.

Raw Magic - an extract

There are some foods that have the power to change your life. There are certain foods that when you eat them, your body is in heaven, your cells start singing, your mind becomes ecstatic. "Yes," they cry in unison, "Yes, these are the foods that I have been waiting for. These are the foods that I have been craving, that my body has been missing my whole life." Sometimes, it is a particular nutrient you have been lacking. But more often with these foods it is their synergistic properties. They have a magical energy which comes not only from the nutritional combination they contain, but from the way they are grown, the lands they are from, their history. Many of them are sacred plants in their countries of origin.

There are many amazing foods I have omitted from this book, foods that are more commonly recognised as superfoods: vegetables like broccoli, kale and cucumbers, fruits like cranberries, blueberries and grapefruit, sprouts like lentils, sunflower or alfalfa. I was tempted to include avocadoes and olives, buckwheat and oats, all foods I eat on a daily basis. But these are foods that most of us are familiar with, and if you are not then there are plenty of books out there that do cover them. This book is about the new breed of superfoods which are unique to the West in the 21st century. Never before have we had access to such a wide variety of plant foods. Some of them we are accustomed to in different forms, like cacao; others have been around for a few decades now, like Spirulina; some are widely known in their country of origin, but novel to the UK, like goji berries; and some others are utterly brand new to us, like purple corn. When I was a child, avocadoes and kiwis were considered exotic, now they are standard fare in every shopping basket. I believe that such is the potency and vitality of the foods in this book that as people catch on to them, they are going to revolutionise the way we eat, shop and live.

These foods are transformative foods. By eating such high potency foods they change the very nature of our reality. They affect our consciousness and raise our energetic level to a degree that has profound implications on all areas of our lives. It is not possible to eat these foods on a daily basis and not feel altered. We live in a culture which is intrinsically false; fuelled on junk food, media lies, false gods and political whores, we have forgotten how to be our true selves. These foods help us realign, connect with who we really are, and tune into our higher selves. It becomes increasingly harder not to live in our power when we eat this way, and this can be a hard adjustment to make in a world where the individual is fundamentally disempowered. Revealing our inner core is usually painful, as we let the masks of self-deception slip away, we have to let go of people and life situations which have been holding us back and preventing us being fully who we are. It is a scary thing to do, to step into our truth and reclaim our birthright when we have been taught our whole lives to avoid truth at all costs, to keep up the facades and not rock the boat. But the more of us who make these choices, the easier it becomes. And the more we attract into our lives people who have made the same choices and appreciate us for who we honestly are.

Rocking the boat is what we are here to do! Isn't it exciting and exhilarating when you stand up for what you truly believe in? Our time has come, and the old ways are not working anymore. Paradigms are crumbling and new ones are rising in their place. As we understand eternal truths, we see the world for what it is, and understand how desperately things need to change. We align with our higher purpose, the divine intelligence, and see what our life's path is. What mission have we been given? What is our role here at this time? It is to wake the world up, to guide humanity through the massive shifts and changes that are taking place. And of course, that starts with ourselves. We must awaken ourselves, and we must keep the balance between being fully awake i.e. masters of our own reality, knowing that we create everything with our own energy, taking full responsibility for our lives as a manifestation of our own inner state of being; and between being of service, helping to awaken the sleeping masses, and doing everything we can to help people through these times. And you know what the best part is? It's fun. Believe it or not, the universe actually wants us to be happy, it doesn't want us to suffer. And the more we work with the universe, the happier we become, the less we suffer.

Raw Spirit

By Matt Monarch

What the Raw Food Advocates Don't Preach

When I first read about becoming a Raw Foodist, I couldn’t wait to start. And I didn’t. Overnight I abandoned my bachelor’s diet of burgers, Subways, chicken patties, and burritos for raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. I couldn’t wait to experience increased energy, glowing physical perfection, and a longer healthier life.

After I took the big leap, many unexpected changes started happening; things I hadn’t read about like the negative physical side effects and the incredible spiritual dimension of being Raw. Within these pages are details that raw food advocates don’t preach and have not written about. In honest detail, Raw Spirit prepares you for the world you could be walking into if you choose to become Raw, or if you are already.

The second half of Raw Spirit is an extensive interview with Dr. Fred Bisci, PhD, 40 year raw food pioneer, and Master Nutritionist. Included is Dr. Bisci’s Intermediate Healing Diet, a protocol similar to what he gives clients who want to heal from dis-ease. Although I feel 100% Raw is the optimal diet for the human body if done correctly, it may not be for you. This intermediate diet, containing some cooked foods, can be adopted as your daily diet for health and healing; or it can be used to transition safely and easily to your new Raw Lifestyle.

Raw Spirit has much to offer:

Those who want to heal through diet;
Those who want to stay Raw, but keep falling back into cooked food;
Those who are Raw and may run into future problems;
Those who are Raw and feeling confused and rejected;
Those looking into Raw. What they can expect.

Interview with Dr. Fred Bisci

Here are the questions that Dr. Fred Bisci answers in this book, Raw Spirit.

Not many people understand what happens to their body on a cellular level when they improve their diet. Do you feel that understanding this concept would result in much better health amongst the Raw Food community?

Can you talk a little about how someone can become cleaner on a cellular level?

Why is it bad to go back and forth from a Raw Food Diet to a cooked food diet?

Why is it necessary to leave something out of our diet completely if we want to heal? Why can't we cheat just a little bit every once in a while?

What is the order of food groups that one should leave out of their diet from first to last?

I mention in this book that a raw food eater is more sensitive to polluted air than a cooked food eater. Do you feel your health is suffering because you are a Raw Foodist living in NY air pollution?

Why do you think Dr. Norman Walker lived to be such an old age?

What kinds of problems can someone run into who eats too much fruit?

How much fruit is too much?

You have mentioned that long term raw food eaters can run into problems if given pharmaceutical or intravenous drugs. Why is this?

You have been on a raw diet for over four decades. Have you ever encountered a problem with medical drugs?

Do you feel that raw food eaters should be raising their newborn babies Raw?

I don't know anyone that is a bigger animal lover then you. How do you recommend someone raise his or her pet?

How do you feel about the use of alcohol?

How do you feel about the use of marijuana?

Do you feel that colonics are important?

Do you feel that one needs to do colonics to be successful on a raw food diet?

I have talked to you about how I have had gas and waste problems ever since I became Raw. Is this normal?

Even when I am eating really well, feeling emotionally okay, and have been eliminating fine, inevitably after two weeks, gas and waste build up in my system and I need to do a colonic.

I do colonics a couple times per month. Is it bad to do it this many times?

Is it possible to do too many colonics?

How do you feel about Bernard Jensen's psyllium and bentonite cleanse?

After I did the psyllium bentonite cleanse I started to experience the energy fields that I mention in this book for the first time. Can you comment on that?

How do you feel about the aluminum content in bentonite clay, one of the major ingredients of Bernard Jensen's cleanse?

Do you think this Bernard Jensen's cleanse would drastically improve someone's health and level of cleanliness?

When I was eating cooked foods, I ate everything and anything and never had any noticeable digestive problems. Why, now that I'm Raw, must I contend with annoying digestive upsets (gas) whenever I eat bad food combinations?

Some people say that you shouldn't mix too many types of fats at one meal. How do you feel about that?

What are your thoughts on Hyperbaric Medicine?

Why do you feel that raw food eaters seem to be dying at the same age as cooked food eaters?

Why are those that have been eating a raw diet for many decades at more risk of running into serious complications compared to others?

Why are eating nuts so important for a raw food eater in the long run?

You have been on a Raw Diet for 40 years. It would be very hard for you to go back to eating foods that are not raw. If you could do it all over again, would you add any other foods into your diet?

How about adding raw goat's milk or raw cheese to your diet?

How old do you think someone could live in this day and age if they committed to an optimal Raw Diet?

Do you feel that eating once a day is a big key for longevity?

Do you feel that systematically under eating is a big key in longevity?

Do you feel that exercise is key to longevity?

Do you think that drinking vegetable juice is necessary to succeed on a Raw Diet?

Does the body of a raw food eater handle stress better?

Do you believe that Breatharianism is possible?

Do you feel that supplements are necessary for a raw food eater?

I have heard you say that many spiritual things happen to the person that becomes a 100% raw food eater. Can you talk about any of those spiritual experiences?

What has a Raw Diet done to your brain (memory)?

Do you feel that men should conserve their sperm?

Can someone eliminate all of his or her Sexual Transmitted Diseasess (STD's) on a raw food diet?

Is a raw food diet the best way to deal with degenerative diseases?

What is your diet like? How many times a day do you normally eat?

Raw Success

  • Description

By Matt Monarch

The Key to 100% Raw Vegan Longevity

Have you been reluctant to eat 100% raw because you are afraid of doing it wrong?

It is true that many long-term raw vegans suffer from deficiencies, health and dental complications. Most Raw Pioneers are dying between the ages of 80 and 93. If the raw diet is so amazing, why aren't we living decades longer than cooked food eaters?

Raw Success is the key to longevity on a 100% raw vegan diet. With information that has never before been introduced, these new concepts mark a turning point for the raw lifestyle!

# Understand how to succeed with a 100% raw food lifestyle
# Find your Optimal Raw Diet: not too extreme, not too lax – just right for you
# Protect yourself from the detrimental effects of the environment

The information revealed in Raw Success will open your eyes wide to the truth.

It is my intention that this book serves as a complete guide to your Raw Success. Thus, for those just beginning, I have included the popular article, How to Go Raw, which outlines steps for transitioning to a raw lifestyle. My hope is that these pages add years of vital living for the person new to raw, as well as for the Raw Food Pioneers that have been on this journey for many decades.

Rawsome Flex

  • Description
By Tonya Zavasta
Paperback: 128 pages
Publisher: BR Publishing; 1st edition (September 18, 2008)

Admittedly, facial exercise is a controversial topic. I found that, while long-term practitioners rave about the benefits, most dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons are against the program. Well, that's understandable, I thought. It's called a conflict of interest. Doctors are also not in favor of my 100% raw foods lifestyle. Since most of what I do to stay in great health goes against a doctor's advice, I decided that was probably a plus for the exercises. What intrigued me was that people who practice facial exercises generally look better than others of the same age. Many of them do not even follow healthy lifestyles - at least, not to the degree that I, and others like me, do. Everyone agrees that we all need to exercise for health and improved self-image. But our ideal picture does not include droopy eyes, eye bags, double chins, no lips, and a jawline that looks like that of a melting cartoon character. You probably work out. Yes, we want ripped abs, a slim waist, and well-toned thighs. But what about the part of us that we look at most closely every day? Your facial muscles, as much as or even more than body muscles, can sag, bag, droop, and go all-over wrinkly. While many are concerned with their facial complexion, we don't talk much about exercising the face. Not enough, at least. Facial exercises don't receive as much publicity as those which emphasize other areas, but they are just as beneficial.

Cosmetic surgery often requires cheek implants to plump up the face. Why? Because facelifts drag the face backward. While this eliminates sags, it pulls away the fullness of youth. Occasionally, cosmetic surgeons suggest the addition of exercises after a surgery, but generally, they ignore the benefits because exercise doesn't cost thousands of dollars. Surprised? You shouldn't be! A young person s epidermis continuously develops to accommodate new growth in both musculature and skeletal structure. The challenge is to make our mature skin respond like young skin. The raw foods diet is our only chance. On raw foods, our system works as efficiently as a much younger person's. If you have any doubts about using facial exercises, look around at your yoga, Pilates, or gym class.

The phenomenon I explored in my first book, Your Right to Be Beautiful, is getting more pronounced than ever. People with thirty-year-old bodies have faces that look decades older. You've seen bodies reshaped by exercises, haven't you? In the same way, you can actually reshape your face. Exercising your facial muscles is not nearly as pretty as yoga or Pilates. I think that's one reason I postponed even trying them. But I know for a fact now that they will definitely beautify your face just as other exercises improve yoyour physique - but facial exercises work much faster and more dramatically. Imagine a rubber band that is permanently stretched. Then you'll have a good image of the way muscles have weakened, lengthened, and drooped in your face. As muscles weaken, they make the whole face sag. So what's the good news? These flabby muscles can be shortened by facial exercises that ultimately lift and firm your face.

Exercises shorten loose, slack muscles, making them firm and taut, and helping to diminish the fat around those muscles. Your facial muscles are the only muscles in your body that insert (or attach) to skin at one end rather than being attached to bone at both ends. Toning your facial muscles will directly affect the appearance of your skin. Through facial resistance training, you can build muscle, stretching the epidermis and reducing wrinkles. Facial exercises also strengthen and tighten the understructure of your face and neck. Droopiness, flabbiness, furrows... you can say goodbye to all of them.


Before doing the Rawsome Flex exercises, I could not even stand to look at myself in the mirror. I am not exaggerating. Even though my skin looked pretty good, having been a raw eater for over 7 years, I was dismayed by my sagging jowls and drooping eyebrows. I was beginning to look my age - and I hated it! But after about 4 weeks of doing the exercises daily, I noticed that every time I would meet someone I hadn't seen in a month or more, they would remark, 'WOW, you look so GREAT!' or 'What have you been doing? You look fantastic!' I had not received such a flood of compliments since going raw 7 years ago. I am too busy in the AM to do the exercises, so I decided to do 40 minutes at night along with my yoga and trampoline routine. I just watch my Netflix shows and the time goes fast. This way I don't feel guilty about watching TV because I am multi-tasking. (I have gone through all seasons of Desperate Housewives and am now on Brothers & Sisters--I love it without the commercials!) I also do the exercises during a movie if the person next to me doesn't mind. With the "chin push ups" and "upper jaw builder" exercises, which use spoons as weight lifting props, I soon graduated from a very heavy tablespoon to 2 of them. But today I had to go out to Home Depot and get some serious weights (crown bolts for a dollar or two) because the 2 heavy spoons are too easy. I have been doing these exercises for 6 months and I swear they have wiped about 5 years off my face! Thank you, Tonya! --Susan Schenck, author of The Live Food Factor, The Comprehensive Guide to the Ultimate Diet for Body, Mind, Spirit & Planet

Dear Tonya, I have been researching and using different forms of facial exercises for a long time as most of my work involves natural healing and natural beauty too! actually deserve to charge a whole lot more than you do for it. These exercises are very powerful and I felt the effects straight away, how clever to use the [...] too. In love and in health. --Dr. Marilyn Golden, Sydney, Australia

Tonya has been following the raw food lifestyle since 1997. The raw food lifestyle not only helped her to sail courageously through troublesome times, brought her general health and appearance to an all time best, but also opened a new chapter in her life.

Reverse Aging

  • Description
Reverse Aging

By Sang Whang
Paperback, 123pages
Publication date: 1 January 1998

Not science fiction, but a scientific fact! This book is the first common sense scientific explanation of the aging process and "how to" reverse it. The nutrients that we deliver to our cells burn with oxygen and become acidic wastes after giving energy to our body. The body tries its best to get rid of these acidic wastes through urine and perspiration. Unfortunately, our lifestyle, diet and environment prevent our body to get rid of all the wastes that it generates. Gradually, these leftover acidic wastes accumulate somewhere within our body. Since acid coagulates blood, the blood circulation near the waste areas becomes poor, causing all kinds of degenerative diseases to develop. The author defines the aging process as the accumulation of non-disposed acidic wastes within the body. According to this theory, the reduction of accumulated wastes is re verse aging. This book explains how some of the adult degenerative diseases are caused by too much acidic wastes, and describes the various scientific devices and methods to reduce these wastes without any harmful side effects. These devices and methods are being wid ely used in Japan. Alkaline water makers (water ionizers) have been in existence in Japan for more than 40 years. Many in the alternative health industry of water ionizers, magnet and far-infrared devices regard this book as the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference book of its kind in the English language. It is a "must read" for all who are health-conscious.

Great book, by Texas rose bud "texasrosebud" (Southern Indiana)
A very good book on the subject. very helpful information on reversing aging and giving a much better quality of life. I had total knee replacement on one knee and needed it on the other. After getting my system ph right, I am able to get around better than I have for years, without any medication to help! Not considering the other knee replacement.

Excellent, by Susan J. Morgan
This book was purchased for a relative - reading it before sending it on - worthwhile information for those interested

Great review of the science behind alkaline diets by Michael M.
This was one of the first books I picked up after reading Dr. Young's "The pH Miracle", which had left me with more questions than answers. What I loved about this book was the way Mr. Whang explains - in plain English anyone can understand - the chemical and physical science that makes alkaline diets work.

If you're looking to understand the science behind alkaline diets, this book is a must-read. Mr. Whang doesn't approach alkaline balance like most other authors who just tell you to eat this and not eat that. In the first few chapters of the book, he gives the reader the essential understanding of how the human body works - from a chemical perspective. He doesn't make assumptions or rely on annectodal data - he shows the reader how the laws of physics and chemistry affect the chemical reactions inside the human body.

Armed with this information, he then tells the reader how the basic elements of foods (minerals, calcium, phosphorus, etc.) affect the pH of the body. This is the key understanding when it comes to figuring out which foods are acidifying and which ones are alkalizing.

His approach is very straight forward, clear, and matter-of-fact. He then goes on to show how an acidic lifestyle and diet affects the body, how the body tries to maintain its chemical integrity, and what the resulting strain does, in terms of reactions, diseases, etc. Mr. Whang's description of diseases and how they come to be is also very interesting. He goes through a long list of diseases, gives specific reasons for each of them (from an alkaline diet point of view) and tells the reader how to reverse them. He goes a step further in his description of non-medicinal health improvement devices that are mainly used in other countries. Again, giving scientific reasons why and how they work to alkalize the body.

What is missing from this book is a good description of what to do on a day-to-day basis to become alkaline. He only mentions drinking alkaline waters. Nonetheless, I think Mr. Whang's book is excellent. If you're serious about getting healthy through an alkaline diet, you must to read this book (and also find another book that gives step-by-step instructions for what to do).

Karyn Calabrese is Chicago's premier vegan and raw restaurateur and champion for holistic cooking. Her latest cookbook is divided into two sections: one features popular cooked recipes from her restaurants, and the other focuses on her favourite raw recipes.


"To call Karyn Calabrese's food exceedingly healthy is beside the point. It is, but more importantly, everything she touches in the kitchen becomes magically delicious. It's one of the reasons I live fifty feet from one of her restaurants. My wife and I are avid fans, not only of her restaurants but also of Karyn's holistic approach to life. Just look at her-enough said, right? To distill good nutrition and high sensuality into your cuisine is the true definition of culinary artistry. Run-don't wait-to buy this book. Three cheers, Karyn. You are the best."
-- Charlie Trotter, author and chef-owner, Charlie Trotter's.

"How I wish I could sit at Karyn's table every day to be nourished sufficiently. I know that eating this way is what provides and prolongs superior health and vitality, but beyond that is the fact that this food tastes so good. Now I can eat like this at home. Thanks Karyn."
-- Angela Bassett, Academy Award nominee and actress

Would purchase from same bookstore again., by Karla Nuss
The book arrived in just over a week in excellant shape. It had been highly recommended to me by my best friend, and now we are sharing our favorites from the book. I highly recomment it to others that are trying to lose weight, lower glucose or cholestrol, or just start a healthier life style.

Healthier Eating, by Terry R.
I purchased a copy so I would not mark up a friend's book I was perusing. I like that Karyn give options for those of us who are starting and want to change to healthier eating, however, find it difficult to go it 100% right away. I was surprised to find I had many of the herbs and groceries she uses in her recipes as I have started to change my eating habits. Thanks.

Spiritual Nutrition - Six Foundations for Spiritual Life & The Awakening of Kundalini

  • Description

Gabriel Cousins

Format: Paperback, 628 pages
Other Information:  illustrations
Published In:  United States, 01 July 2004

Dr. Cousens shares an exciting new paradigm of the meaning of nutrition and assimilation in Spiritual Nutrition. His practical, comprehensive approach to spiritual nutrition presents a diet system that is based on the relationship of the colour of the food eaten to the corresponding rainbow colours of the human chakra system. The book discusses some of the major nutritional questions that are important in empowering individuals to develop personal diets that are appropriate to their lifestyles and spiritual practices.

When we eat, can we feed the soul as well as the body? Can a diet have impact on spirituality? Spiritual Nutrition empowers readers to develop personal diets that are appropriate to their lifestyles and spiritual practices. Drawing on 14 years of clinical experience and research, Dr. Gabriel Cousens discusses nutritional issues that can help answer these questions, including raw vs. cooked food; high vs. low protein; the concepts of assimilation and fasting; alkaline/acid balance; attitudes about food; nutrients, energy, and structure building.

In addition, Cousens shares his new dietary system of "spiritual nutrition" that is based on the relationship that the color of the food has to corresponding colors of the human chakra system, hence, the "rainbow diet." For true nourishment, he strongly promotes the connection of diet to meditation, fellowship, wisdom, and love.


 "[This book] will become a standard for ages to come, against which all other books will be measured and put into perspective of relative importance. The author leads us beyond the limited precepts of nutrition into the realms of Divinity."
 - From the Preface by Viktoras Kulvinskas

"...arguably the best book on diet from both a health and a spiritual point of view ever to see print."
 - Meditation Magazine

"Dr. Gabriel Cousens is a true Yogi. This book is a cosmic how-to book that focuses on methods to spiritualize the physical body, thus creating a vehicle for Enlightenment, here and now."
 - Sharon Gannon

"This is a stunning advance over similar books in the field. It opens up the real possibility that nutrition has finally entered a new age. Better yet, this effort draws from both the best and most recent science and the eternal roots of esoterica, a full meal for the most critical reader."
 - Lee Sannella

"...probably the most detailed description ever written of the role of diet and Kundalini in the transformation of body, mind, and spirit."
 - Barbara Marx Hubbard

About the Author

Steve was pronounced "Sproutman" by Vegetarian Times Magazine in a 1979 feature article that explored the why's and wherefores of his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Steve is still a big "believer" in healthy diet and lifestyle.

Steve got interested in natural foods after a 20 year effort to correct chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic changes in his diet and within two months of eating a strict "living foods," vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms vanished. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen, or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit), juice fasting for as long as 100 days, and briefly, breatharianism (no food, no water).

Steve's innovative kitchen gardening techniques and the cuisine he developed from them, gave rise to a "School for Sprouts." He began teaching indoor gardening 12 stories above the streets of New York City. He called his no-cooking school, The Sprout House, since so much of his cuisine included vegetables from his kitchen garden-sprouts. Steve invented two home sprouters, The Flax Sprout Bag and a tabletop greenhouse called, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He also supplied his growing kits and a full line of organic sprouting seeds via mail order.

Steve has since sold the mail order business and he and his family now breathe fresher air in the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts. Much of the information from his teaching years have been related in his books. He has the most popular books on sprouts, including Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, to name a few. But he also has other books on subjects such as fasting and raw juice therapy.

Steve has been featured on PBS, the Home Shopping Network, TV Food Network, and in Prevention, Better Nutrition, and Organic Gardening magazines. In 3 minutes on QVC, 953 people ordered his Cookbook and Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. You can visit him at

Dysinger, MD, MPH, Chair, Department of Preventive Medicine, Loma Linda UniversityPresident, American College of Lifestyle Medicine)

“Super Immunity is a much needed book that contains the key to ending the cycle of sickness that plagues many of our lives. This is enlightened medicine, at last!” (Dr. Alejandro Junger, New York Times bestselling author of CLEAN)

“Super Immunity”is a fantastic read that scientifically explains the origins of Western disease and lays out viable solutions to our unhealthy lifestyles.

Keeps Getting Better, by azmissdaisy (Scottsdale, AZ USA)
Dr. Joel Fuhrman is the one true voice to listen to when it comes to diet and nutrition. He is thorough in his research and with the success stories of his patients is proving that his beliefs are not only sound but work. When you read his words you just know that it all makes sense. I love Eat To Live and and am thrilled with Eat For Health and thought what could be new in Super Immunity? Let me just say- LOTS. He has done it again!

After reading this book, I feel like I have a clear picture of where disease comes from, what to do to prevent it and how to go about reversing it in it's tracks. Every thing from colds and flus and what to do about them, including a thoughtful and scientific overview of vaccines, so that people can make their own INFORMED decisions about these, to where cancer comes from and how to halt it's progression and even prevent it.

Cancer is not something that strikes people out of the blue or a rogue gene that needs tons of money to investigate. It is instead a direct result of processed and packaged foods being introduced and accepted as food in our society along with the lack of nutrients that the body needs for protection. If you are not eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables and super foods, you are walking around in a body with no "force field" against illness and disease. It's just a matter of time before disease and illness comes to call, unless you take proactive steps to stop it.

This book should be required reading for everyone as a user's manual for the body. Not only does it provide the science behind what is happening in the body, it spells out what foods to focus on and recipes on how to incorporate them into your daily lifestyle.

We as Americans are so out of touch with how to support our health and the real crime is that we are spreading our poisonous lifestyle and diet-born illnesses to the world around us. Wake up people, put down your cheeseburger, fries and soda and take charge of your own health and life.

I highly recommend this book! Another home run Dr. Fuhrman!
