A PASSION FOR THE FUTURE!
Our graduate student Joelle Vadas has opened her own healing center 'RawFully-Healthy' in Melbourne, Australia.
She will be coaching and leading workshops teaching the benefits of Raw Living Foods and diet change to her part of the world. If you are in Melbourne, you are going to want to check her out. We are so proud of her.
Our 'new beginning' really started eight years ago. I may never have found my way to Raw Living Foods, except I was desperate to solve my own declining health. I had a tumor growing in my uterus with no signs of slowing down.
Detoxing with Raw Foods to restore order in the body and heal degenerative disease was not my original idea. A plan and protocol was first taught by the late, great healer, Dr. Ann Wigmore. She had healed her own cancer using Raw and fermented foods. Before her miracle, she had been a white pastry junkie. This was a woman I could relate to and trust. It was her belief that no matter how sick you are, you can restore your own health if you give your body the right tools to work with. That gave me the courage to try. I owe my healing success exclusively to her work.
My quest to get well led me to new lands I didn't know existed. It granted me grace and gifts I hadn't expected. I joined the plant-based movement to get myself back on track. It has transformed my health, as well as giving my life clearer purpose and passion.
Joseph, my husband, a nurse for twenty years, watched the new foods change and transform my health. He too would bravely confront the foods that were causing him harm. My household would wake up 100%.
Together we began by building a Raw Food Meet-up group in our community. The first year there were about ten to fifteen people. Today we have 360 members. People would come to us and say they wanted to go deeper with the diet, so we created Diet For Living Center and began classes teaching the 'Raw Food Basics'. We wanted to spread the word even further, make the circle bigger.
So we added 'Diet For Living School of Natural Nutrition', with global reach. The school is Board Certified by the American Association Of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), allowing us to be recognized as a Higher Educational Institute. As a graduate of our program, if you choose, you are eligible to receive international Board Certification from AADP. Their Holistic Health Practitioner Certification helps you instill trust while expanding your professional development. Your success is important to us.
THE BIG 'WOW' NEWS
According to the National Centers For Disease Control and Prevention "more than 133 million adults in America are living with at least one chronic disease, such as obesity, diabetes or cardiovascular disease. The cost of managing their care is estimated at an astounding $270 billion a year." These are not just numbers. These are our friends, family, loves ones, our communities and maybe even us. The National Center goes on to say "growing evidence demonstrates these diseases can largely be reduced or prevented through education and behavioral changes." It's easy to conclude that the greatest impact on the future of health today and tomorrow will be teaching people to eat lifesaving innovative foods.
These are exciting times to be a Holistic Health Educator. New York City doctors are writing prescriptions for fruits and vegetables for obese and over weight patients. Called the 'Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program', patients get prescribed 'Health Bucks', redeemable for produce at more than 140 New York Farmer's Markets. 'WOW'! The program has now expanded to seven other states on the Eastern Seaboard and continues to grow. How exciting is that!!! No gimmicks, pills or potions, no mysterious supplements. Just the food's nature provides.
If you're like us, you want to be part of the solution, part of this growing movement that is seeing the world in new ways.
