Never Get Sick Again on a Raw Vegan Diet!

Never Get Sick on a Raw Vegan DietAnyone who’s ever read a book on raw veganism or listened to a raw ‘guru’ give a lecture has heard this statement – “you will never get sick again as long as you eat a raw vegan diet.” There was a time early on my journey into raw foodism that I also believed and even shared this myth. That’s right, I said myth… Because it’s simply not true. While a raw vegan diet does allow one to experience greater health and vitality, it does not make one superhuman… it simply allows one to be a healthier human, and humans are vulnerable creatures. We are not perfect and we are not impervious to the machinations of the microscopic world. Viruses and bacteria are constantly evolving to overwhelm our defenses. While a clean, raw, plant-based diet can be a big help in this fight, it does not give someone guaranteed, rock-solid immunity.

This video sums up my thoughts on this topic.

    Thanx-a-million for the confessional video. I never did buy into the, “never get sick again” angle of the raw diet. It never made any sense to me to be honest with you.

    I just started eating vegan in July 2012 after watching the movie Forks Over Knives and never looked back. I’m currently working towards a raw diet but don’t have enough information to dive head first into it.

    With that said, my best friend and I, Erik Stafford, are setting up a teleseminar series where we interview 24 people who are highly knowledgeable in their angle on health, we are calling it the “Get Healthy Summit”, and I would to involve you.

    Our goal is to get the word out about living a green lifestyle to as many people, in as many different formats as possible. We have a few open interview slots. If you would like to get involved I have included my main email address in the comment form I filled out. I also subscribed to your FB page, good stuff my man! I hope to hear from you!
