There are many examples of vegans getting into deficiency trouble after some years on a 100% plant based diet, especially when no supplements are taken. Note: INHS' diet position is based on these case examples and many more, of humans who have been damaged by vegan diets. These are strong words from a man who devoted most of his life to the search for a satisfactory vegetarian diet.
Duncan's role was especially noteworthy given it was one of the few instances where a massive bodybuilder was given a "serious" and prominent role in a Hollywood feature film, instead of the usual typecasting as dumb goon or trigger-happy action hero.
Sadly, Michael Clarke Duncan – described by many as a "gentle giant" died on September 3, 2012, aged 54, after having suffered an initial heart attack in July. Whether Duncan's switch to vegetarianism accelerated his early demise or not, one thing's for sure: It certainly didn't help him. Hom Jay Dinshah (November 2, 1933 – June 8, 2000) was founder and president of the American Vegan Society and editor of its publication, Ahimsa magazine. The Hallelujah diet consisted of 85% raw fresh fruits and vegetables and 15% cooked, while eliminating: all meat and dairy products, refined sugar, salt, and refined white flour products. In the spring of 2001, while attending a Hallelujah Acres Health Minister Reunion, we learned that there was possibly an important ingredient missing in the Hallelujah Diet, an essential nutrient called Vitamin B-12. Had God forgotten this key vitamin in His "ideal diet" so that it required supplementation?
Several months following the birth of our child named Andrew Aaron, we began to notice some symptoms that concerned us. After doing some research into the symptoms of Vitamin B- 12 deficiency, we realized our child was likely deficient.
We also found out that the most accurate testing for Vitamin B-12 deficiency is done through the urine, not the blood.
Up to this time, this child was solely breast-fed but realizing Romsey wasn't supplying the baby with the nutrients he needed, we began to add raw goat milk to his diet. At one year, he cut his first tooth only to have most of the enamel missing off the front of it.
It was especially enlightening to us that after adding the raw goat milk to his diet, his other five teeth came in with complete enamel.
Note that the father's statements quoted above depict a diet with a regular though not excessive level of grain consumption, would which tend to refute our critic's idea of an induced calcium deficiency stemming from inappropriately high levels of phytate in the diet. That even informed advocates acknowledge vegan diets should be carefully planned suggests that less margin for error is a real issue. The most logical conclusion is that there isn't as much margin for error on vegan diets in terms of nutrient deficiencies, while with the inclusion of animal products--a part of the natural human diet--or with the addition of artificial supplements to compensate for their absence, there is. In the summer of 2000, we were in the midst of producing the Weigh of Wisdom Workshop that teaches the Genesis 1:29 Diet. My weight had dropped to 120 pounds, and I was only a ghost of my normal weight of 155 pounds.
I had also lost almost all my digestive power as well as five teeth to decay on the Genesis 1:29 Diet. I was extremely cold, and eating food always seemed to drag me down, rather than pick me up. Our daughter Sarah had no stamina or energy, and her food cravings had become almost unbearable. Worse yet, we were beginning to see the same problems in others outside our family who were on the Genesis 1:29 Diet. By the spring of 2001, it began to dawn on us that we had better take another look at our diet. So far, we have identified the most common fifty-four health problems people have developed on the Genesis 1:29 Diet, and have incorporated these symptoms into the survey.
The fact that the diet now supplies almost all my micronutrients and needs (except for vitamins B12 and D) is impressive.
The worst mistake we can make as leaders is to reverence a theory (Genesis 1:29) so highly that the theory becomes more important than the health of our students.
Then, when I had moved to another location, I became very attracted to the vegan philosophy, because it is a beautiful philosophy. At that point, I was wondering whether this was an experience unique to myself, or whether other persons had had problems on the raw food diet in the long-term.
Here, in the Eugene area, where I live, a man in the local raw food support group died about two years ago. I was telling that story to a woman in Santa Monica who is part of a raw food support group there, and she responded by saying: “Oh yeah, we recently had a guy who died the same way, and he wasn’t very old either. Example: a patient's teeth were visibly rotting, hair was noticeably thin and brittle, nails were covered with cracks and deep ridges, and he was extremely gaunt. Upon taking a full history and giving this fellow - I'll call him John - a full physical evaluation, I learned that he had fasted several times before over the past decade.
After understanding John's medical history and completing a comprehensive physical evaluation, I told him that I believed he was severely malnourished.
That's when I realized that what John wanted was for me to treat him in the exact same way that the other doctor did, minus the blood work, and at half the cost. I told John that I felt that a long water fast was not in his best interest, and gave him some recommendations on whole food choices that would provide him with the nutrients that I felt he was deficient in. Over the past several months, I have received dozens of e-mails from supporters of a strict vegan diet about a book called The China Study. Personally, I have no doubt that eating factory farmed animal products is harmful to human health. Then they started to exhibit symptoms of ADHD, Aspergers, and Tourettes (all in the autism-spectrum) along with various other physical, mental & emotional difficulties. I too have felt myself going downhill with many symptoms similar to the children -- problems with memory, focus, eyesight, fatigue, heat & hydration regulation, anger control, mental fog, overwhelm etc.
I discovered that we are all quite deficient in the following trace minerals: calcium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, iodine, lithium, cobalt, and germanium. A famous writer and ex-vegan by the name of Upton Sinclair, the activist who forced the meat-packing industry to clean up its act many decades ago when he wrote The Jungle, found he couldn't maintain his work levels on a vegan diet. Writing sadly that he hated to give up veganism, Sinclair did so nonetheless because he found his brain just wouldn't function at an optimal level on fruits, vegetables, juice, nuts, and seeds.
Although Upton Sinclair was nearly crucified by his vegan friends for changing his diet and writing about the positive results from the change, he maintained that he went where the truth led him. I'm increasingly disturbed by the number of letters coming in from individuals who have had their health and well-being deteriorate after following a strict vegan or raw food program for various lengths of time. In just a minute I'll share with you the most recent letter, this one from a woman who ate a raw food, vegan diet for several years and who developed spleen deficiencies and other problems.
Although I'm not the only former vegan and raw foodist seeing this pattern, I seem to be one of the few who actually writes about it and discusses it in public.
For various reasons, many former (and most current) vegans and raw foodists don't want to publicly confront the problems with their idealistic diets, though many are willing to share their observations and experiences with me in private. What are the most commonly reported symptoms from long-term vegans and raw foodists who have been forced to add some animal fat and protein back into their diets to regain or maintain superior health, energy, and well-being?
Also, compare this longer list of typical symptoms = the vegan diet survey by Westbrook - based on interviews with people who followed the Hallelujah Acres vegan diet.
Until that kind of research is done (and don't hold your breath waiting for someone to fund it), we'll have to rely on the same anecdotal evidence to show veganism and raw foodism doesn't work for everyone that the vegan and raw food gurus rely on to "prove" their programs do work for everyone. This particular calamity — at least the third such conviction of vegan parents in four years — may be largely due to ignorance. A vegan diet is equally dangerous for weaned babies and toddlers, who need plenty of protein and calcium.
A Florida couple accused of starving their baby to death are scheduled to face two of their surviving children in court today. Joseph Andressohn, 36, and Lamoy Andressohn, 30, are charged with aggravated manslaughter and neglect in the death of their daughter, Woyah, who was 6 months old when she died in May 2003. Paramedics found Woyah's lifeless body on the floor of her parents' living room in May 2003 after her parents placed a frantic 911 call. She weighed less than 7 pounds when she died, just a few ounces more than when she was born and less than half of an average 6-month-old.
Prosecutors say the Andressohns starved Woyah to death by restricting her to a raw food diet, also known as a vegan diet or a "living foods lifestyle," feeding her only wheat grass, coconut water and milk made from almonds.
A Queens couple who fed their baby daughter a strict vegetarian diet, including homemade infant formula, were convicted yesterday of nearly starving her to death.
The case, described in some headlines as the Vegan Baby Trial, attracted widespread attention beyond the couple's Queens Village neighborhood. She was severely malnourished and weighed 10 pounds -- less than half the normal weight for a young toddler. 2007 - Harvey Milstein died from colon cancer (in his sixties), very quickly, shortly after being checked into a hospital. 2008 - a young Houston vegan (around 30) also died from cancer - very quickly, within 2 weeks of diagnosis.
May, 2008 - A leading member in ANHS, Max Huberman passed away at age 86 following a fall at home, after getting Parkinsons (the same disease Dr. The late Helen Jean Story of California, who created one of the first raw foods newsletter via snail mail before the Internet. Taking all this into consideration, it would be clear that one can observe perfect Ahimsa only in Nirvikalpa Samadhi; in which state the body becomes almost a corpse devoid of breathing, moving and thinking. That being the case, it is the circumstance and the attitude of the mind which make an act sinful. Prominent Vegetarian and Health Advocate (INHS: Max Huberman), this leader in the natural health movement and a personal friend to me also suffered from and eventually died from a fall related to his Parkinson's disease. When he was developing his Parkinsonian tremors, I ordered blood tests and was shocked to see his blood results showing almost a zero DHA level on his fatty acid test, in spite of adequate ALA consumption from nuts and seeds eaten daily. Since that time I have drawn DHA blood levels on other patients with Parkinson's and also found very low DHA levels.
Was it a coincidence, that these leaders in the natural food, vegetarian movement, who ate a very healthy vegan diet and no junk food would both develop Parkinson's?
TC Fry (1926 - 1996), another long-term Natural Hygienist, raw foodest, vegetarian-fruitarian, advocated you did not need supplements as food contained all that we need.
A good sign: today it seems many vegans are abandoning their former all-vegetarian fare because of health problems. For an example of this, plus abandonment due to moral considerations -- see this excellent & well-written 2009 book The Vegetarian Myth by Lierre Keith. Another example is former M2M director Bob Avery, a natural hygienist veganism-promoter for many years, who in 2008 started including organic meat in his diet.
The only way out of the vegetarian myth is through the pursuit of kas-limaal, of adult knowledge. The lesson here is obvious, though it is profound enough to inspire a religion: we need to be eaten as much as we need to eat.
Beyond Broccoli is authored by Susan Schenck, who herself was a raw vegan for six years, followed by a year of raw vegetarianism (raw dairy and eggs included). But after a few years of veganism, she began to exhibit health concerns: deficiencies of vitamin B12, memory problems, muscle tissue loss, bloatedness, irritability, and cravings.
The book begins with the author's story of why she resumed eating a bit of animal products and how she manages to stay mostly raw even so. In the short term however some people appear to benefit from a change to a raw vegan diet, however long term, health problems from dietary deficiencies and imbalances inevitably catch up with people.
But somewhere down the line - months for some people, years for others - the wonder starts to wane. In other words, you start seeing raw foods’ freaky nose hairs and you begin to wonder: what did I get myself into? About a year and a half into it, I started to get weak, mentally, though this didn’t become apparent to me for years.
The results explained perfectly why I had been feeling weak and exhausted for more than 6 months.
Holly Paige: How our vegan diet made us ill - Holly Paige thought her family's food regime would boost their health - but stick-thin legs and rotten teeth made her think again.
Like most people, when I first got interested in the raw vegan diet I didn’t care so much about the proportions of macronutrients in my food. As you will see ideally we should be eating 25% or less of fat, but many raw vegans are still eating even more than 60% of their daily calorie intake coming from fats and this is definitely not advisable.
It’s incredible how I feel the energy flowing through my body, after I drink a big green smoothie in my breakfast!
When I eat an apple, the digestion and absorption is so fast that I can even feel the energy arriving to my brain.
This is true, because our daily calorie needs are limited, and if you eat too much fat, you will end up not eating so much carbohydrates or proteins.
If you are in a raw vegan diet, you are eating basically fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, so if you lower the quantity of nuts and seeds (and oils) that you are eating, it’s only natural that you will start eating more fruits and veggies.
Feeling all the energy coming from fruits flowing inside your body, it’s just natural that you feel better. Some time ago, my skin was becoming saggy and I was becoming worried every time I looked in the mirror, but with the low fat raw vegan diet I can see clearly that my skin reversed its aging process.
This is the reason I started the low fat raw vegan diet -> I realized that so many raw vegans become athletes and improve their performance with this diet.
Look around and you will see that the fittest raw vegans as the ones who advocate a low fat raw vegan diet. I confess that I started the low fat raw vegan diet because I saw how cool raw vegan people are. Luis Souza has been a health advocate since he healed himself from sinusitis in 2000 by drinking plenty of water and ending his consumption of milk and dairy products. I cannot express how happy I am, to not have to suffer through that tormenting pain called a urinary tract infection.
My digestive tract is incredibly healthy now, I’m very regular, and I get no pain at all in my intestines. I have yet to see any improvements in my symptoms, so really just trying to gain some hope that my diet with help with this disease. Make sure you eat enough fruit and log your calories into cron-o-meter (a web based nutrition tracker) I weigh 130 pounds now and got to that with a low-fat, high carb, raw vegan lifestyle. Are you able to eat tomatoes, papaya, and all the fruits and veggies that can irritate IC, without pain? Most fruits and vegetables are actually very quite soothing to the bladder unless they’re not properly ripe.
For the last couple weeks I’ve been testing out a lower-fat raw vegan diet known as the “80-10-10” diet (80% carbs, 10% protein, 10% fat).
I admire Darlene so much that I’ve been trying to figure out a way to steal a pair of her shoes and have them bronzed. If you’re interested in going raw, I highly recommend that you go download a copy of Darlene’s book right now! I’m exploring raw vegan food, mostly to help my asthma and to lower my risk of disease later in life.
You are such a bright light in the world I appreciate this amazing article which just reflects why I love you so.
I haven’t eaten a raw diet before but would be very interested in learning more about this healthy choice.
In the fall of 2009 I became aware for the first time that gluten & dairy cause serious issues for me.
This only lasted four months, but it was the best I had ever felt physically and emotionally in my entire life- so I see great potential for the future.
Also, I have unusual health problems that my doctors are doing a poor job helping me to solve.


I feel that transitioning to a Raw Vegan Diet will help me return to my optimal health, but I need direction, support & help with implementing it in my life. For all those concerned about feelings of deprivation, having the right stockpile of dried fruits, raw chocolate, and such, you can create such amazing treats you will never want to go bake to industrial processed.
I have eaten raw for up to 7 weeks at a time, but eventually give in and go back to vegetarian eating – although I still eat a lot of raw. I live in Australia, and there doesnt seem to be as much enthusiasm for raw foods as there is in the US. I would luuuuv to win the book to get some better guidance, coz I havent lost any weight yet. I have been dabbling in the natural health world for quite a while but diet was not high on the list of study. I have tried to go raw with information found on the internet but there is so much out there I feel overwhelmed and confused. I love this of what you said, ” I admire Darlene so much that I’ve been trying to figure out a way to steal a pair of her shoes and have them bronzed.
Now I’m settling down in Hawaii and am doing a 30 day lifestyle design experiment with the low fat raw vegan diet. In 1929, Gandhi and 22 companions went on a diet consisting of a limited selection of uncooked plant foods.
Gandhi still felt, however, that "the hidden possibilities of the innumerable seeds, leaves and fruits" of the earth could be explored and found to provide mankind with adequate nourishment.
In 1946 he declared: "The crores of India today get neither milk nor ghee nor butter, nor even buttermilk. 2012: Anyone who's watched The Green Mile will undoubtedly remember the massive 290 lb physique of Michael Clarke Duncan.
All the outlandish health benefits claimed for vegetarian diets clearly failed to materialize for Duncan. Cursio: Their diet would be predominantly fruit, nut proteins, and a relatively small amount of salad compared to what they get now – they used to get one salad a day. They now recommended those on the Hallelujah Diet take a supplement to make up the difference for the lack of this vitamin in the diet. We discovered that this vitamin was primarily found in meat and other animal products but were told that B-12 could also be produced from sources such as friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract.
So we had a urine sample tested and the results consequently showed positive for B-12 deficiency.
After a few weeks he could hold his head up and began to scoot around on the floor on his belly.
This revealed more evidence of Hallelujah Diet deficiency beyond Vitamin B-12.This past summer, we learned that Greg Westbrook and his family, former Health Ministers and founders of the Weigh of Wisdom Workshop, also suffered from numerous deficiencies after following the Hallelujah Diet for a number of years. Donaldson's study in which 139 of the 141 Hallelujah Dieters were deficient in their calcium intake -- why our child had the enamel missing off the front of his first tooth.
This example of serious nutritional deficiency was criticized by one vegan raw-food advocate online, who made the accusation that crucial information must have been purposely withheld from my account, and suggested the rickets could have been due to an induced calcium deficiency from the binding action of phytates if the diet were rich in grains.
The father also gave the following rundown of the particulars of his own diet (which, as we'll see, has an influence on the character of his son's as well) and to some extent his family's diet. Unfortunately, however, as we see above, some individuals simply don't do well on vegan diets even when conscientious attempts may be made. When we transitioned to an all-raw vegan diet in 1994 and then to the Hallelujah Diet (an 85% raw vegan diet) in 1997, we were so pleased with the results that we never dreamed our diet would one day let us down. We heard from the grapevine that people were talking about how old and tired Judie and I were looking. More raw food, more juicing, more dehydrating, and soaking nuts and sprouting seeds, more Barleygreen, more exercise. We each had a brand new set of health problems that we didn't have before the Genesis 1:29 Diet. In fact, my dentist was doing a land-office business with vegetarians, and told me that the vegan diet (Genesis 1:29 Diet) did not provide the nutrients necessary for strong teeth. In those days we just recommended Udo's Oil or vitamin B-12 and sent them on their way with admonitions to be more faithful to the diet, eat more raw food, bigger salads, etc.
Being a scientist at heart (an electrical engineer for 30+ years), I wanted to get a handle on the scope of the problem.
The survey is an invaluable tool because it lays out all these long-term symptoms on two pages and enables people to really understand how much health they have lost.
For a cleansing diet, it is appropriate only for short periods of time only; no longer than three months as a general rule. All of my extremities — my hands, my fingers and my feet — were in such pain that I couldn’t move.
I won't name names because that would be betraying confidential interactions, but many of them called me when they were needing some sort of advice for dealing with these ailments. He ended up staying with us for a week, an experience that made me decide to write this article to discuss the sad side of fasting and the pursuit of dietary purity. John's first water-only fast more than ten years ago lasted for around 50 days because the doctor supervising his fast felt that successful treatment for his asthma required intensive detoxification and a prolonged period of pure rest. Through it all, John faithfully followed his doctor's advice to stick to a 100 percent raw, vegan diet. His teeth were visibly rotting, his hair was noticeably thin and brittle, his nails were covered with cracks and deep ridges, and he was extremely gaunt. I also gave him several recommendations aimed at improving the strength of his immune system, which I felt should have been the primary focus in trying to help him recover from asthma. During the past three years alone, I can think of at least a dozen people who have come through our clinic who have had very similar health histories and health problems.
I was a strict vegan for almost five years until I finally came to the realization that it wasn't working for me.
I do believe, however, that for most people, regularly eating small amounts of clean animal foods like organic eggs and organic butter is necessary to be as healthy as possible. I first learned about raw foods while on a 2 week semi-fast (the Master Cleanse) and jumped right into a 100% raw diet (very gourmet in the early months and moved to a 80-10-10 raw vegan diet following Doug Graham's approach. Wouldn't it be nice to see some truly objective research that would get to the bottom of the relationship between long-term veganism and chronic health problems and symptoms like the ones listed above? His vegan parents, who fed him mainly soy milk and apple juice, were convicted in Atlanta recently of murder, involuntary manslaughter and cruelty. When babies are deprived of all these nutrients, they will suffer from retarded growth, rickets and nerve damage.
Studies show that vegan breast milk lacks enough docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, the omega-3 fat found in fatty fish. The little girl's body was described as "emaciated" in a medical report, with ribs clearly visible through her stretched skin. Prosecutors said that as exotic and sensational as it sometimes seemed, the facts were plain enough: a diet with no dairy products or infant formula is not adequate for a newborn child, and the parents should have known better. By the time the authorities intervened when the child was 15 months old, she was toothless, had rickets, broken bones and internal injuries. Davison, 88 years old, developed heart disease as a raw vegan, and was forced to close the health resort, she had kept for 30 years, in 2005.
To get out of debt means you don’t want to be part of life, and you don’t want to grow into an adult,” one of the elders explains to Pretchel.
I realized then that people so deeply ignorant of the nature of life, with its mineral cycle and carbon trade, its balance points around an ancient circle of producers, consumers, and degraders, weren’t going to be able to guide me or, indeed, make any useful decisions about sustainable human culture. Her journey has culminated with the reintroduction of just a bit of raw and lightly cooked meat. Schenck had already penned the 2-time award-winning, and still relevant, book The Live Food Factor. Stanley Bass, led her to conclude that it was a lack of vital nutrients found only in animal products that were causing the problems.
It also includes a chapter on other vegans and vegetarians (some who eat raw, others who eat cooked) who made this decision for their own health reasons.
I see no evidence that making a permanent switch from an omnivorous to a vegan diet would improve the health of any client. Intermittent fatigue, dental woes, hair loss, concentration problems, and some not-so-happy blood test results forced me to rethink the dietary regimen I was so tightly clutching.
I would come home from school (if I ever DID manage to go to school that day), and I’d wonder how people manage to still do things after school.
Now, believe me when I say that there is a difference between LOW sex drive and NO sex drive. I actually asked her to show me the blood test results because I thought there had to be some sort of mistake.
But it was only when I realized the importance of lowering my fat intake that I really started enjoying a boost in my physical and specially my mental health. Be aware of this, because it’s easy to do that, when you overeat nuts and seeds and many raw vegan products made with them. Drink a spoon of oil before running for 30 minutes and see how your performance will be lower than when you simply eat a banana before your training. Every time you don’t put hard to digest foods in your system, you are giving it a chance to work longer. When you see videos on You Tube with people advocating a high fat and gourmet diet, usually they don’t look so fit and even healthy. I went from getting them every month, to getting them NEVER when I follow the low fat raw vegan diet consistently.
It then spread miserably to my back, it was all over my chest, the sides of my face,  down to my neck, and even my arms!
My digestion is as fast as every and getting healthier every day with being a low fat raw vegan.
Eating enough carbohydrates on the low fat raw vegan diet has made me the most talkative I have ever been in my life, my mind is so clear and sharp. I had an IUD put in place a few months ago which caused an infection, and I ended up developing IC for whatever reason. I was inspired to try this diet by one-of-my-very-very-best-friends-and-favorite-people-on-the-planet, Darlene Navarre.
At that time, Darlene had been eating raw for almost 10 years and let me tell you, it showed.  She was the happiest, glowiest, most youthful person I had ever met. I was thinking I could display them in the kitchen next to my beloved Vitamix, kind of like a little raw vegan shrine. It kinda feels like someone smashed open a pinata full of unconditional love, rainbow glitter and magical unicorns. It’s an easy-to-follow raw vegan meal plan that shows you how easy and fun it can be to eat healthfully. When a fan asked her for help transitioning to a raw diet, she started compiling her favorite recipes and put them in a book. Her recipes are always among my favorites and the entire book reflects Darlene’s spirit, which is vibrant, playful, and colorful. I’m now trying to figure out raw recipes for everyday life with husband, nursling and a toddler!
I feel amazing when I am on raw food but somehow sometimes get trapped into old habits and society where a friend offers you that brownie… I know that something is missing and I need help to be the best that I can be! I have much admiration for all the people out in this community who have found that happy, consistent, holistic balance.
I’m not very creative when it comes to creating different dishes so get stuck in a rut and then lose interest. Whereas the diet worked out well for a time and led to marked improvement in consumptive cases, it failed to prove adequate on a long-range sustenance basis. He never stopped trying to experiment along these lines, but he always had to turn back to goat milk to regain his strength. No wonder that mortality figures are on the increase and there is a lack of energy in the people. Many others have also gone through the experience of believing that man could thrive exclusively upon a limited selection of uncooked plant foods, only to find in the end that animal products were necessary for sustenance. While his bulging musculature made eyes pop and jaws drop, his acting performance alongside Tom Hanks earned him a string of accolades, including Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for best supporting actor. While the powerful actor may have been getting stronger in the gym, there was one muscle that kept getting weaker.
I'm speaking now how these changes took place – especially in the care of children - so that we have here problems that came up in the children when I followed the strict fruit program with nuts, and minimal amounts, compared to what I use now, of green stuff (salads).
It was only after adding green stuff that I started to see in the pregnancies that followed, and also in the children that were grown, that came from these pregnancies, the difference. They amended their diet to include some animal products in order to correct their deficiencies.
M2M): The father himself had been vegetarian for 13 years, and for the last four had maintained a diet of "80% living foods"--which we can take to mean roughly no more than about 20% of the diet (probably by volume since calories were not mentioned) would have been other than raw (but possibly juiced, or blended) foods. Often, more scientifically oriented vegan advocates will object in such cases that the diet wasn't "intelligently planned" enough. In view of the evolutionary and clinical evidence regarding potential long-term problems due to high saturated fat levels in dairy (among other things), flesh food would be the logical choice as the animal food we are most fit to eat. Things were not looking good for us, but we still did not make the diet connection at that time. We've been keeping track of data from the surveys, and continue to update the database as new surveys come in. Our new materials are based on what we call the “Plan B Diet,” which includes animal products, but none of the junk in the Standard American Diet.
I included raw dairy into my diet because I had met an elderly Essene teacher who recommended that. Then, at the next big raw food conference, there that person would be, preaching the amazing benefits of the 100% raw vegan diet, signing copies of their books, and speaking negatively about cooked food eaters and those who eat only partially raw or are not vegan. His doctor, when he died, told his wife (the man’s wife) that her husband had died of starvation. Although he experienced some improvement with his asthma, it was bad enough by the following year for the doctor to recommend that he fast again, this time for a month. It was clear that John and the doctor believed that it was only a matter of time before fasting and a raw, vegan diet would completely cure his asthma.
I told John that I believed he was deficient in vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin A, zinc, iron, DHA and EPA, and finally, healthy protein and fat. John was unable to let go of his obsession with doing long water-only fasts and sticking to a strict, raw vegan diet. Although I realize adults can make their own choices, I really believe that part of the blame in cases like John's must be placed on practitioners and gurus who lead people down such a path. If you are feeling strong and healthy on a strict vegan diet, even a strict, raw vegan diet, I'm happy for you. Colin Campbell and his son, Thomas Campbell, this book is being referred to by some people as conclusive evidence that any amount of dietary animal protein increases one's risk of cancer and other degenerative health conditions. It is difficult to overstate the importance of DHA, vital as it is for eye and brain development.
Not a single recognised religion asks its followers to kill mercilessly or to be unkind to any living being. In water, air, etc., there are innumerable living things which are invisible to the naked eye. It is the idea of "I" and "Mine" alone that forges the fetters of bondage and makes one suffer hell fire.
A follower of Shelton's works, he operated a large health food store, one of the first to sell organic fruits and vegetables in America; he became a leader in the health food industry. I saw his hospital record at his death and reviewed his blood work drawn immediately prior to his death.


The animals will outstrip their food source, eat the plants down to the ground, and then starve to death, leaving behind a seriously degraded landscape. By turning from adult knowledge, the knowledge that death is embedded in every creature’s sustenance, from bacteria to grizzly bears, they would never be able to feed the emotional and spiritual hunger that ached in me from accepting that knowledge.
Anything would get to me, and I had to learn about self-mastery and breathing techniques and all that shit.
My teeth started getting incredibly sensitive, and there were clear signs of heavy acid erosion. But there was no mistake, it was right there in black and white; deficiencies and abnormalities across the board. If you put too much bad stuff in your tank, how are you going to be able to put the good stuff there too?
If you want to be in a very solid and happy mood being able to listen to your inner voice, eat lots of fruits. We will need to wait 50 years of more to see if the low fat raw vegan diet will really give more years to each one of us, but the bets are all in our favor!
You can’t imagine how great this is to me and how grateful I feel to have been able to find this natural depression cure! He now dedicates himself to inspire others to take responsibility for their health with Raw Vegan Power.
I tried all sorts of different topical treatments to try to end the misery, and I was so embarrassed that I felt I needed to cover my face with makeup every day. I was very self conscious about how I looked and had a bad self esteem, this played a part in my social anxiety. This went on throughout high-school and a little bit of middle school. I have been a low fat vegan for 7 months now eating lots of cooked carbs like potatoes and rice, but am considering going substantially more raw.
I have struggled with chronic constipation for as long as I can remember and I no longer have any trouble digesting my food every time I eat. I had severe back acne, mood swings, anger, was constipated my whole life and had a bunch of other issues. You can see the natural muscle definition on your leg for your recent picture compared to when you said you were working out a ton but not eating a raw diet!
In the old pic I was living off chicken, toast, low calorie pre-made food, whey protein, chips and alcohol. In the first couple of months she tried restricting her calories to 1200 Kcals (a big no no of the Banana Girl Diet) and ended up binging, consequently gaining 10-15lbs pounds which she had worked hard to lose.
Thankfully I’m eating raw vegan food or I’m sure I’d resemble the marshmallow man from Ghostbusters right about now.  I feel very fortunate that eating a pound of grapes does not have the same effect as say, eating a pound of Timbits. She was so inspiring to me that I returned home from Vegas and ate 100% raw vegan food for 6 months straight.  Since then, Darlene has continued to be my my number one raw vegan inspiration.
Strangers often approach her to ask what her secret is, which is great because Darlene LOVES to share how a raw vegan diet has contributed to her health, happiness, and well-being. All you have to do is leave a comment telling us where you are on the raw vegan path and why you want a copy of this book.
One of the biggest barriers is how complicated many of the recipes seem – so love the idea of simple, easy recipes to start with! I do love to spread health and joy around as I know you do, that is just one of many reasons why our friendship is so special a perfect.
Over the last few months I have really cleaned up my diet and am focusing on whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruits and veggies at every meal. As the newer convert in the house, and a recent corporate drop out embracing a new healthy lifestyle, my husbnd Mark is reveling ina ll things healthy and vibrant. I want to have more energy so that I can do more of the things that I truly love and one of my biggest goals is to never have a migraine in my whole entire life. With a book handy I wouldn’t have to look in my computer or on the web every time I needed to plan a meal. WHILE I am doing stretching and weights in the morning, I listen to like minded raw living individuals so I don’t feel so alone in this choice : ) It helps me make to through the day!!
One by one Gandhi's companions were forced to depart from the diet, and Gandhi himself had to add goat milk to his fare in order to regain health. It would appear as if man is really unable to sustain life without either meat or milk and milk products. Only two months prior to his heart attack, Duncan showed off his huge physique in a new PETA ad campaign featuring the slogan, "I Am Michael Clarke Duncan, and I Am a Vegetarian". And when that (heart) muscle stops pumping, how much you can squat or bench doesn't mean diddly. These children, the skeletal development wasn't right, the dental arches were not well-formed, teeth came in crowded because of it. In the morning, they'd have just fruit; at noon they'd have the fruit and nuts, and at night they'd have the salad, sometimes with nuts and sometimes with vegetables – but on this kind of a setup, I've been noticing the inadequacies in these children. He also mentions eating potatoes and rice occasionally in this and another issue of the M2M.
Or alternatively a fruit smoothie consisting of fresh-squeezed apple juice, tahini, dates and bananas. Yet if one must go to such lengths to be so conscientious and careful, what does this suggest? Fortunately, we have a health food store in our area that sells veggie-fed and organically fed animal products. I was in my eighth year of practice while the other doctor had been supervising fasts for more than 50 years. His rigid adherence to a 100 percent raw vegan diet was particularly amazing for me to observe given that he was eating huge amounts of raw tahini (ground sesame seeds) because he was constantly hungry and craving dietary fat. The big problem that I have with such practitioners and gurus is that they seem to be much more interested in fitting people into their programs and philosophies than they are in carefully considering how each individual responds to specific food and lifestyle choices. What I find troublesome is how some people become so focused on promoting the benefits of a strict vegan diet that they lose sight of how they and those they provide guidance to are really doing with their health. In the weeks before her death, she had trouble keeping her eyes open, and they would spontaneously roll back into her head.
In its code of moral-conduct every religion lays much stress on love and compassion for all living beings. In mere breathing, walking, talking, drinking and eating vegetables, grains and fruits one kills millions and millions of microscopic organisms. Of course he was not at risk of cancer or heart disease with his excellent diet, but he developed Parkinson's which limited the quality of his later years. In the narrative of my life, the first bite of meat after my twenty year hiatus marks the end of my youth, the moment when I assumed the responsibilities of adulthood. Bass, with his more than 50 years of clinical experience in raw vegan and nonvegan diet counseling, contributed the foreword to the resulting Beyond Broccoli.
It’s funny, because I was saying I was eating a raw vegan diet because it was “natural”, but here I was depending upon all these "unnatural" techniques.
I thought the tips of my teeth were always this transparent and that the darkened spots near my gum line were just stains from all the colorful food I was eating. But if you want to slow down your system and be really heavy and with your feet grounded to the Earth, eat more fat.
The hospital decided I need a transplant, as the tubes connecting my kidney and bladder were improperly aligned. Each time I took a weekly dose of medication for my current UTI, I’d get a yeast infection.
I can’t find any before pictures of me without makeup, since I hated getting my picture taken, but I still have some scars from the acne. I never thought I would have been able to say that I still have the scars left over, but they’ve been healing up nicely. I can now eat pounds of food in one sitting when I used to only be able to eat a tiny portion, I’ve eaten 7 pounds of watermelon for breakfast before and I feel euphoric afterwords. I ate lots of whey protein shakes, fat burner pills, chicken, low calorie junk foods and all other NON- Foods..
I would more then likely read the book and then donate it to someone who could be of even greater benefit to have it. I have moved away from meat and dairy but really need to fill my nutritional gaps with the right things and make a transition that will benefit me for the rest of my life.
Migraines have been in my life for as long as I can remember and I just know deep inside that there is another way.
I have started having Green smoothies some mornings but other days I am too tired and it all seems too hard and I make bad choices and then regret it! Luckily I was intuitive enough and had friends that are herbal wise and was able to (at least at this point) beat the cancer. I would order it now but my budget just went into the toilet due to a car accident that totaled my car. I noticed a great deal of boys that were born who were herniated – who had what we call hydroceles. And all the aberrations I had noticed – the near-sightedness, the hernias, the hydroceles, and the musculature that was weak – that all disappeared.
If we are being fair in making an estimate, we'd probably have to say that at most, rice would have constituted no more than, say, 10% of the father's own diet (half of the 20% non-living foods, given the mention of potatoes as a similarly occasional item). In fact, during the filming of the Weigh of Wisdom Workshops, she was having horrible headaches nearly every day. It just didn't occur to him that he may have been eating containers of tahini on a regular basis because his body was in need of nutrients that he wasn't getting enough of, particularly healthy fat and protein.
Somewhere along the line, the mission seems to become more important than caring for each individual. I don't care to spend my energy on debating why a strict vegan diet is or isn't the healthiest diet on earth. Please don't ever let anyone or any program become a more important guide for your health than what your own body tells you.
He had severe B12, deficiency, so long-standing that his B12 levels were almost undetectable and the lowest I have ever seen.
It was the moment I stopped fighting the basic algebra of embodiment: for someone to live, someone else has to die. I followed it perfectly for three years, during which my health didn’t really get any better, but for the first two years, it didn’t get any worse either. My gums started to recede, I broke a molar by biting a tiny piece of a hazelnut shell by mistake, and a few months later my dentist would find six cavities in my raw vegan mouth. I still have bouts of depression, but not much at all The low fat raw vegan diet is really a blessing. Nearly every low fat raw vegan I speak with raves about all of the extra energy that they have, so much so that they don’t know what to do with it all. With health issues caused by 7 years living in a house with toxic mold, raw to me means feeling my best. After switching my diet over and making a real life Sykes change I was able to drop 40 pounds, get off my IBS meds, my thyroid meds, and a number of other great things happened.
I had a stroke and I am only 41 no cholesterol problems, no high blood pressure , Someone even suggested I caused this on my self by eating touch greens.
I changed the grading of the cancer from a grade 2 to a 1 in 2 months time which even had my surgeon surprised.
However, we still seemed to be missing something, as Judie's headaches continued to persist. They were vegetarians and many of them were raw foodists, but they ate fermented dairy products such as yogurt and kefir. You should know that he was eating tons of romaine lettuce, avocado, celery, broccoli, and other nutritious vegetables that informed vegans know to eat lots of.
I prefer to spend my energy on trying to figure out how each person who comes to me for guidance can experience his or her best health. It is kind of interesting reading internet interpretations of why he died, such as "did not practice what he preached," "cheated on his diet," "too much sex," "ozone treatments for his vascular disease". In that acceptance, with all its suffering and sorrow, is the ability to choose a different way, a better way.
Maybe those niggly health problems you had prior to - raw aches and pains, lethargy, allergies, arthritis, skin conditions - start resurfacing out of nowhere.
It has been a journey that took patience, consistency, passion and relearning how to love myself for me. I spent 10 years on a cane from a car accident and along with regular chiropractic care and the energy of raw foods, at 48 years of age, I am now running and just this morning heading out for my second 5k race.
I feel great on raw, I NEED to be on raw, my skin is better — for so many reasons, I need it and love it.
I am now mentally better prepared to change how I eat and have done a lot of research on the web, but anyone that has done the same realizes that the information on raw food diets covers a very broad spectrum. Dinner was another raw salad for the whole family with the possible addition of steamed vegetables or potatoes. It wasn't until we took the quantum leap and added beef back into our diet that we finally saw the breakthrough we were looking for.
Still, I cannot cite The China Study as conclusive evidence that any amount of animal protein is bad for human health.
He died prematurely simply because long-standing B12 deficiency leads to extremely high homocysteine levels, which can cause intra-vascular inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
Whatever the reason, raw just doesn’t seem to be working as well as it did in the beginning. I have been coaching women for the last 2 years how to empower themselves with knowledge that reconnects them with their inner guide and intuition.
This book would both help me find other desperation meals, (haha) and inspire my converted committed husband.
I think it would help me finally get to where I want to be with my diet, weight and health.
So I would love to have Darlene’s book to give me a guide and plan to stay on track and to give me the raw Meal ideas. Your enthusiasm diminishes, and in its place comes doubt, discontentment, and a plethora of questions. In line with this of course were other things that I noticed with other individuals – people who had been living this way and living, I know, 100%. As far as I know, this study did not take into account critical factors that determine the suitability of animal products for human consumption and health. How does human health respond to eating wild or organic, naturally raised animal products vs. What effect do different cooking temperatures, cooking methods, and oils have on animal foods with respect to human health? Without searching for and considering the answers to these questions, how can we make such a bold conclusion that eating any amount of animal protein causes disease? I cut down on the amount of fruit, without making any relative increase in the green stuff (salads).
Then, I finally found that though there were slight improvements, they were not sufficient. There's got to be, what, I had talked to Weston Price about it – he was one of the men I spoke to. Later on, you know this work done on B 12 , I came to the conclusion that this perhaps was one of the factors that could lead to this kind of pathology.
