My healing journey began 13 years ago when I was 18 years old.
My health was really declining and western medicine wasn't seeming to improve it at all.
My Naturopath got me to completely change my diet to that of holistic and whole foods and did a lot of cleansing.
It took a while, but my health dramatically improved until it was better than it had ever been before. I was always sick as a kid.
However, I felt I was on a plateau; that there was something missing in getting my health to the next optimal level.
When I worked in health food stores 10 years ago, I kept reading a health book that suggested to eat 50-75% raw foods to heal most health conditions. It got me curious. What does that mean to eat more raw? What is that?
I did some more research and it just made sense.
My former partner and I were both interested in becoming raw and began our raw journey together.
I'd take every raw workshop I could attend there to educate myself to incorporate more and more in my life.
Now I'm mostly 90-100% raw.
I have more energy, I require less sleep and feel more rested. My skin is more radiant; based on my youthful appearance, people mistake me for being twenty years old, and I'm actually 31.
On top of being a raw foodist, I've been incorporating activities like Belly Dancing for over 10 years in my health regime to maintain my outer beauty and fitness.
