Raw Food Diet Normal, Not A Cure

Tonya Kay, professional dancer, performance artist, actress and raw foodist talks about how she overcame manic depression by switching from a vegan diet to a raw vegan diet. I took note when she mentioned that the raw food diet wasn’t a cure for illnesses or health problems. Rather, eating a raw food diet is normal. Eating the ‘SAD’ (standard American diet) diet of processed, cooked and fast junk foods is not normal and the reason our society is in such poor health with rampant obesity and disease on the increase every year. I couldn’t agree with her more, eating fresh, ripe, naturally (organically) grown fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds is what our bodies were made for… and thrive on, not the processed ‘frankensteined’ foods created today.

    Tonya, my sister-in-law had manic depression. The four months she was on raw her md went away. She had been really really sick. At the time she was trying to cure her terminal cancer. She had been given 6 months and lived two years.

    What an awesome testimonial! As someone new to the raw vegan diet it’s very nice to hear someone put things in perspective. I’ve been going through withdrawals for the past two months from all of the “stuff” I’ve put in there – caffeine, meds, nicotine, fatty foods, processed foods – slowly transitioning to where I am now – raw vegan – it’s been hard, but like she said if I can just power through it – things will be so much better! And the lasting rewards are DEFINITELY worth the battle. Thanks for the motivational video!
