I refused to continue chemo after 3 months. I chose to die rather than be completely crippled for the rest of my short life. At that point I had had 7 "incurable" diseases. A volunteer for a hospice gave me a small booklet written by a woman who cured herself of cancer after by drinking raw carrot juice. I thought that was pretty bizarre and unrealistic.
But read the book anyway. I tried the carrot juice. Within 10 days my dyslexia vanished. There I was at 22 years old never having read more than 20 pages of a book, finally able to read. I read voraciously about diets and nutrition. If I went days without drinking the raw carrot juice dyslexia returned. I experimented with diets, food-combining and sometimes supplements. The macrobiotic diet seemed to put my cancers in remission but exacerbated my diabetes and psoriasis. I began experimenting with helping people who had health problems. I experienced some spectacular healing with raw foods, especially with enormous consumption of raw fat , like raw cream from cows, in combination with vegetable juices.
By my 25th birthday I was eating totally raw food vegan-fruitarian style. I lived off the earth. All of the physical stress that came from traveling and living in the elements helped burn up all of the sugar from fruitarianism.

Osteoporosis became apparent, but I did not then as I should have attribute it to the demineralization caused by large fruit consumption. I felt euphoric most of the time I did not realize that my extreme highs were mania created excessive fruit. I searched for answers to complete healing. I wanted to reverse the damage done by medical therapies and not ever be bothered by any of my lingering diseases.
I knew that I would not find answers in a society that postulated dictums based on theory. I wanted experience to be my teacher. I lived with somewhat primitive people learning their healing and dietary techniques. I observed healthy animals for weeks at a time.
Rather than fight it. I chose to die. I selected an old Native American burial ground and began fasting myself to death. After several weeks fasting I had an unusual experience with coyotes. They gave me a freshly killed wild jackrabbit. I thought it would kill me if I ate it raw. I had been told by all of my medically and scientifically minded relatives that wild rabbits contained bacteria or virus that would kill a human. I knew that fasting to death could take at least 60 days. I wanted to end my life more quickly, so I ate the rabbit raw.
I returned to my campsite and lay down to die expecting severe stomach cramps that I was told accompanied bacterially or virally contaminated food. I felt euphoric, calm and happy. I thought that I was leaving my diseased body because I felt so good. But I woke the next morning having had the first completely restful sleep of my life. I was nearly age I began hunting. I ate rattle-snakes and birds. I worked farms for raw milk, cream, eggs and chickens. Within a few months I felt robust and strong. I returned to Los Angeles to spread the wonderful news. Everybody thought that I had lost my mind.
Over the next year my health increased by leaps and bounds because of the addition of raw meat to my raw diet. However because of misinformation about foodborne illness from bacteria and parasites I ate raw meat only two or three times a week usually fish or chicken. I always ate it with the fear that there would be a time when bacteria or parasites would sicken and kill me. I began to jog then run. I ran up to 13 miles, did pushups with my feet feet off the ground, and 30 handstand pushups every day for 1 year. Because I had been so weak throughout my life and at this point I could do so much I felt invincible.
People commented on how extraordinarily healthy I looked. I was hired by a health food store as the nutritionist. A few people listened and tried the raw meat, fish and chicken. Their increased health was always remarkable. I experimented with supplements. The more supplements I consumed the weaker I got. I realized within 6 months that supplements were toxic on a raw diet. Over the 2-year period I observed that most people who took megavitamin therapy developed toxic livers and glands.
It showed up in their irises as well as temperaments and physical condition. But because they experienced an increase in energy. Their highs were from toxic emergencies - the liver sending out hormones calling forth glycogen to handle the toxicity. Supplement-toxicity is similar to coffee or cigarettes, most often producing debilitating side effects. It destroyed my desire and ability to exercise. I never returned to exercise and yet I developed and redeveloped the physique that accompanies strenuous regular exercise. I continued eating raw meat once or twice weekly, and my health gradually increased.
Whenever I experienced detoxification, healing was always a progress toward better functionality. I did not deteriorate as most people do on cooked foods or meatless raw foods. I knew I was on the right track by eating raw meat, but I could not set aside the bacteria and parasite phobias. I was especially concerned because the vagus nerve to my stomach had been severed in surgery for stomach cancer.
I had no hydrochloric acid to dissolve and annihilate bacteria and parasites upon entering my body. Science and medicine put me in the category of octogenarians who they say, are in danger of death from bacterial and parasitic invasion from lack of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. I continued to eat meat anyway. In my 35 year I misidentified a poisonous mushroom and ate it. It was the deadliest amanita mushroom, the 'death cap'. I ate enough to kill people my size. Along with severe liver-pain, extreme weight loss.
Every book on the death cap mushroom said that death came within 10 days and it was welcomed. I was a semi-invalid again. I healed slowly by eating plenty of raw fat. Too slowly. Healing time doubled and diabetes vanished. It took 11 years to recover to where I had been before I consumed the poisonous mushroom. But I recovered completely.
After 12 years eating raw meat and never having had any more than a little diarrhea that might have been associated with it, I learned to relax and not fear raw foodborne bacteria and parasites. It seemed to me - at that point - that all of that hullabaloo about raw food borne bacteria and parasites was superstitious like the witch hunt of old times. Raw was getting the rap, but cooked and processed were the culprits. Only cooked and processed food putrefied. Only cooked and processed foods contained lipid oxides and disease producing protein toxins.
The worst that soured and spoiled raw food caused sometimes was nausea and diarrhea with occasional cramps and fever and, rarely, a little blood in the stool - whereas cooked and processed putrefied food often caused such severe poisoning that lives were lost or near death. It seems to me that science and medicine are in total denial or that they are protecting the processed food industry and restaurants.
My nutritional career unofficially began in Since I hadn't died in when doctors said I would. I thought that I had had some answers to better health. In I began advising and suggesting healing methodologies for people, especially particulars about diet. Now that I look back on my life, I wonder how I could have been so confident, even arrogant, to advise anyone with the little knowledge and experience that I had.
I knew a lot about disease but little about health and healing. I seemed to have a fairly good intuition for it. However, I adhered to certain idealistic concepts that interfered and sabotaged my intuition. I didn't realize that something had to be killed to sustain life whether animal, vegetable or fruit. That is a law of this planet. I did not realize that only cooked meats contained poisons i.
In my early years as a nutritionist I helped many and hurt many. Because my help was always greater than my mishaps, I continued to counsel. Occasionally there was relatively immediate healing. Most often though, healing requires time to build strength, detoxify and regenerate. The fact of healing according to Dr. Pottenger's work is that it takes 5 generations to achieve optimal health. Usually, healing enough to stop disturbing pain can he achieved during the first generation of healing.

Many of our members are Natural Hygienists and have chosen to eat a vegetarian vegan and raw primarily diet. Many fast on occasion to allow their body to eliminate the toxic condition from daily stress. How do you view this practice of fasting and what experiences or data could you share with us on these views? I have completed approximately 75 fasts from of various lengths -- many 1-day-a-week fasts, several 5-day, day and day fasts.
One day fast and one day fast. During the day fast I drank all of my urine and a little water. Each one, including 1-day fasts was difficult. The easier of the long-term fasts was the day drinking urine because of the nutrients in the urine. Urine is the blood with most of the red blood cells removed and a little ammonium added by the kidneys. During the day fast I should call it a urine feast I lost the least amount of weight and energy, had the fewest headaches and had better disposition but my breath was atrocious all of the time. The day fast on water only I did at age The last intellectually motivated fast I did at age 33 - the day urine fast.
I found that fasting longer than 3 days was impossible without daily enemas to dilute the toxins in the bowels. Enemas destroyed the bacteria that is the major constituent of feces but so did the toxicity from fasting. I had constant headaches, depression, anxiety and nausea without enemas. I stopped fasting when I realized that the side effects of forced-fasting were greater than the benefits. The benefit of ketosis, cellular cannibalism, which usually occurs within 12 hours of fasting is that it reduces the overpopulation of sluggish cells, leaving the stronger cells and those that overproduce prostaglandins.
This is a process of mass genocide via cannibalism. The deleterious effects are that blood maintains a higher acid ratio weakening and damaging red blood cells and their ability to transport oxygen. If fasting continues beyond 2 days severe blood-fat deficiency occurs. The body leeches fats from the lymph system and cells to maintain it. This fat- leeching weakens the immune system.
Another deleterious effect of fasting is that the necessary bacteria level in the intestines diminishes. This further weakens and diminishes the immune system. Another side effect from fasts, resulting from blood-fat end lymph deficiencies is that many toxins from either industrial pollution or natural by-products of metabolism are freed.
They irritate, burn and often imbed in the stronger cells, therefore weakening them. Fat, especially in lymph, usually binds with toxins and either neutralizes or escorts them out of the body through the mucus mem- branes, skin or bowels. If great collections of these toxins occur during fasting, kidney damage results. These side-effects usually create edema, especially when eating is resumed.
The body often tries to dilute the toxins when it does not have enough fat to chelate and remove them. Mutations some-times result. My conclusion after 13 years experience and research with intellectually motivated fasts is that fasts are often more deleterious than helpful. They may have their place, but I won t gamble with people's lives using fasts as therapy. When certain situations are favorable and if an individual has no appetite , I may suggest that they fast until hungry.
However, if the individual is anorexic, I do not suggest that they fast. I have replaced fasts with a formula of raw vegetable juices rarely fruit juices and raw eggs.

This supplies the nutrients to form solvents to remove toxicity and the fats necessary to eliminate them from the body. It is not as dramatic an experience, but it works well, and more people are able to do it and still function. Concluding that because colds and flus often cease during fasts does not mean that health is improved. It has been my experience that colds and flus and all other diseases are detoxification. I have experienced and observed that colds and flus often ceased during fasts because the body could no longer tolerate such major detoxification.
Some detoxification continued to occur during fasts, however it was mainly the tremendous toxicity from the body cannibalism acidosis. Weaker cells are consumed to feed healthier cells. Fasts force the survival-of-the-fittest reality as in most starved species. This in consequence creates a somewhat healthier body because it eliminates so many weaker and decaying cells. In most circumstances, because the body usually requires much time and nutrients, especially fats and proteins, to detoxify and recover from fasts and because most people do not eat diets that provide proper nutrients, people lack the nutrients necessary to ideally enter regular major detoxification like colds and flus.
Especially in our toxic environment bodies need major detoxification regularly. It is also known that the starving prisoners of nazi death camps were less susceptible to typhoid than their "well-fed" guards. This, if anything, indicates a strengthened not weakened, immune system How do you explain things like this? I do not attribute increased immunity of typhoid to starving. The high consumption of alcohol and drugs among guards seems to have contributed to the greater susceptibility to typhoid. Starving prisoners died of typhoid. Your book was very informative about the role of raw animal fats, meat, and eggs for the proper nutritional fuel for our bodies.
Would you please tell us what you feel is a proper level of raw animal products in our diet, and how you reached this conclusion? For each individual the proper ratio of raw animal products may vary. Experience has shown me that over time raw animal products produce the calmest, most balanced human nature with excellent mental clarity. By several accounts of world travelers and explorers they considered the Eskimo the happiest of all races.
Their first case of dental decay was 50 years after cauldrons, breads and refined sugar were introduced. The dental caries only existed among those who ate some or all of white man's food. Cancer never occurred among primitive Eskimo. I resisted a predominantly animal products diet for fear I would feel dull and sluggish because of the low enzyme and mineral content of feed given to farm animals.
When I finally attempted it I felt dull and sluggish. As a vitamin, enzyme and mineral supplement I introduced 1 quart a day of raw vegetable juice divided into 5 or 6 portions, often adding 1 ounce raw cream, raw milk or raw coconut cream to each portion, or ate a small amount of unsalted raw cheese. The juice perfectly balanced me and prevented the craving for high fructose fruit that resulted from eating animal products.
I avoid the high fructose fruit consumption because it causes manic thought and lack of regular clarity. What objective test measurements have you made on yourself before and since starting this raw flesh diet? Do you monitor any bio-markers like pulse rate, blood pressure, body temperature, various blood parameters? If so, what are they? Have you had a bone scan for osteoporosis? If so, with what result? I was frequently manic, easily tired or exhausted and quick to be outraged.
I rarely experience mania or lethargy, easily remain calm, and have at least five times more energy and clarity. I have not had a bone scan. However, my bones do not easily break as they did when I was a child. I have had several situations where if I had had osteoporosis I would have broken bones but did not.
In one situation where had a severe bicycle accident I broke seven bones in my foot. Six hours later after a year old girl set the bones in my foot I walked 3 miles. The next day I bicycled 12 miles. I was completely painless in 2 weeks. My bones healed 3 times faster than the average person. Such skeletal healing does not occur if osteoporosis exists. One of the effects of eating the raw animal products, I have noticed, is an increased sex drive without Viagra.
You don't mention this specifically in your book if so, I missed it , however there are several references to the high level of sex that you and your clients enjoy. What are your findings in this area and do you regard sexual energy as a health indicator? While Hygiene does not frown on sex, they do caution that over activity in this area is very enervating and to be avoided. What are your views about what is over activity and its possible harmful effects?
I cherish all enjoyments of embodiment. My greatest pleasure is sexual sensuality. I got depressed, anxious and irritable if had regular ejaculations. I have always had a high level of sex hormones and have always since age 3 craved orgasm. My sexual appetite did not change on any diet that I tried. Now that I consume so much raw protein and fat, I enjoy sex hours, have up to 3 ejaculations, and maintain energy with only hours sleep daily. I feel like I have finally achieved and chosen heaven on Earth. Regarding sexual energy as a health indicator seems erroneous.
Some people simply do not have active sex glands and have little sex hormones. However, they can be incredibly healthy. In your book, you stated that you have not engaged in any form of physical exercise excluding sex of course for the last seven years and have been able to stay in excellent condition. How do you explain this apparent contradiction from the accepted present view that stressing the muscles is a requirement to maintaining good physical conditioning?
I have found that raw nuts, seeds and germinated grains and nuts do not provide most people with stable protein for properly building and maintaining well-formed tissue. When most people eat cooked protein they consume lipid oxides and protein toxins causing unstable nutrients for building or maintaining all tissues unless they exercise.
When they stop exercising muscles most often dissipate readily and easily. The seven-year statement was in the context of It has been 19 years as of April that I have not engaged in any form of physical exercise except roller-skating once a month and regular sex. Because I consume raw proteins and fat in the form of pounds of meat seafood, red meat and fowl daily, my body stays naturally muscular and fit. Most animals, if fed their fresh, raw natural diets maintain excellent tone without exercise. You state in your book that it is best to eat fruit with raw fats, so the fruit sugar will not be so rapidly absorbed into our systems.
What do you think about high fruit diets? High fructose diets destabilize mineral levels causing osteoporosis, including tooth decay and periodontitis. The only way to counter this is with tremendous exercise or emotional stress that burns up the sugars as quickly as possible. You recommend the use of stone pressed oils heated below 96 deg F in our diets.
You state that they should not be eaten with vegetables, as in a salad. Please explain the benefits of the oils and why the mixture with vegetables is harmful? Cold-pressed-below deg F oils mainly provide solvents for detoxification. The combination of vegetables leaves, stalks and roots and cold pressed oils is most often inadvisable. Vegetation in the human digestive tract is mainly undigested. If you put cold-pressed oil, without being premixed with raw vinegar, on vegetables the oil coats the vegetables and further reduces the digestibility of the vegetables.
You describe enzyme mutations in your book. Could you explain this process our members and its relevance to health the SAD diet? In order for the body to handle the altered chemicals and compounds in cooked food the body must create enzymes that will utilize them to the best of its ability. Because these enzymes are very different from those naturally made from and for the utilization of raw food, I call them enzyme mutations. If the body cannot make the enzyme mutations to utilize adulterated nutrients caused by cooking, allergies will develop as more of the non-utilizable chemicals and compounds collect in the body.
You stated that raw fats and meats taken from natural sources are essential to excellent health.
You mention this as a new food group. What exactly are you including in this group, and what levels of daily consumption do you recommend? Actually, the writer of the Forword to Volume 2 of my book called it another food group. He did this to stress that the healthy effects of eating raw fats and meats are so different from the poisonous effects of eating cooked fats and meats. Meats and fats that are cooked produce extreme toxicity, whereas meats and fats that are raw produce no toxic effects.
Everyone should completely disregard all knowledge of cooked fats and meats when considering them raw. It reveals that, along with the fresh raw fats that will lubricate, strengthen, fuel and cleanse, toxic cholesterol from cooked and stored fats is being removed from the body to be eliminated. Do you include nuts and seeds, and what levels of these do you think are sufficient? They are not easy to digest for most people. I suggest that people eat them only when they have a craving for them. Usually people who eat meat do not crave nuts and seeds. Also Dr. Strueyer of the Costner excavations determined that as Native Americans began eating nuts and seeds they developed osteoporosis.
Yet it is also known that meat and dairy products are big promoters of osteoporosis and that Eskimos lived rather short life-spans and had brittle bones. Could you comment on osteoporosis as regards to flesh and dairy consumption? This report seems to have been used to propagandize that Eskimo lived short lives. In all other reports primitive Eskimo lived lives as long as we do, a few reached age years. Eskimos who ate their normal animal diet enjoyed bones and teeth that were so strong they were able to chew on bones during evening congregations.
Osteoporosis only occurred in Eskimo who ate white man's refined foods. As I stated earlier, Native Americans developed osteoporosis when they consumed more nuts and grains according to Dr. The definition is intentionally broad and covers everything from types of sleep to the way health is impacted by sleep both positively and negatively.
