    I attended your ladies retreat in 2011! LOVED IT!! I have been about 60% raw and have gotten rid of many health issues!!
    Now I am struggling with menopause. Hot flashes are crazy! I’m thinking of going 100% raw. Thoughts? What other advice can you give other than dress in layers and carry a big fan!!!
    Thank you for all you do!!

    My 19 year old daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury nearly 2 months ago. She has since had seizures 2 separate times. I would like to learn about foods & supplements to protect & heal her brain both now & long term. She will need to protect against Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s & dementia. Can you offer any advice? Thank you!

      We are not able to offer personal advice. However, to help you make informed decisions I will share some fundamental information. A whole food, plant-based diet (such as the Hallelujah Diet) is the very best way to supply the raw materials the body needs for self-healing. In addition, due to the poorer nutritional quality of all our foods today as compared to just a few decades ago, it is vital to insure we meet the vitamin B12 needs, omega 3, vitamin D3 needs of the body and that we supply as many nutrients from whole foods as possible – i.e. BarleyMax, fresh vegetable juices and green smoothies. Critically important for the brain are our omega 3s (flax seed oil and Pharmax fish oil for the DHA). Liposomal Vitamin C can support the rebuilding of healthy cells and support the immune system. Iodine is important for all cells of the body and is woefully deficient in our foods. I would encourage reading the information about the Hallelujah Diet on our web site and consider fully implementing it along with the suggested compliments/supplements and incorporating as much of the Recovery Diet Juicing Routine as possible.

    I had 2 complicated pregnancies with severe pre-clampsia, have been diagnosed with Factor V, low white blood cell count, Graves Disease, & Ulcerative Colitis. I am a full time PE teacher, a mom of 2, fairly healthy weight, but have had a lot of flare-ups in the last 2 years. I have lots of meds I have to take. I see about 6 different Dr.’s. No one suggests lifestyle changes, diets, etc. just meds to take. Any success stories with people dealing with Graves & Ulcerative Colitis? I am in need of help. Last year my joints hurt really bad, this year I am affected a little differently. Is there a safe food for these autoimmune diseases?

    Thank you & God Bless,

      I would encourage you to go to our testimony page and review some of the thyroid testimonies. There have been some folks with Graves as well as Ulcerative Colitis who experienced good results. With the colon issues most fine that they do better transitioning onto the diet with a 10% cooked whole foods diet with fresh juices and BarleyMax while allowing the colon time to heal. It is also important to know the thyroid needs iodine to function efficiently. David Brownstein, M.D. has successfully treated graves with iodine.

      Our body is self-healing when we provide the conditions that are conducive to healing.

      Vitamin D deficiency is also an underlying factor in most chronic issues as well as autoimmune conditions. Optimal blood levels of vitamin D should be 50 to 80 ng/ml. Likewise vitamin C deficiency can be a major factor in a host of conditions. Humans cannot make vitamin C so it much come from the diet or supplements.
