Events, Education and Enemas...

I have 2 speaking events this week in Canada:

I speak in Barrie this Tuesday – the 17th – from 7pm at ‘The Core’ centre – details HERE

Then on Saturday – the 21st - I speak in Toronto with Matt Monarch from 2.30pm. Details are HERE

Hope to see you there if you’re around this area ;)

On July the 14th I had:

1.5 litres water
small glass of green smoothie
bowl of raw buckwheat cereal, blended with berries, cinnamon
500ml water
romaine lettuce with fresh raw sunflower seed cheese, dulse and basil leaves
3tbsps hemp seeds & bee pollen
1 litre water
500ml green juice with apple
6 black plums
handful of sunflower greens
big bowl of GORGEOUS cherries
1 litre water

Life just keeps on getting sweeter here in the company of this beautiful, vibrant raw family…the way they speak with each other, the things they share, the openness, caring, genuine contact and appreciation…it’s SO wonderful to see and experience such a healthy, joyful family unit in action…and YOU can even see them in action too if you like ;) They made a DVD documentary about their way of life called ‘Raising Children Raises Us’ – which you can see more about HERE. It was shown at the Raw Film Festie in Hollywood earlier this year…mum of the family, Shannon, also wrote an accompanying article of the same name, which you can see HERE on the main RawReform site – beautiful people ;) I feel so blessed to be learning here alongside them and grateful that there are people here enjoying this way of life and modelling it for others like blessed we ALL are for that...these are truly the raw wonder-kids of a new generation ;)

This comment was just left after my last post here:

“...I dont think i'm digesting food well enough. I feel "backed up". I eat lots of fruit and veggies and have added flax oil to my smoothies and juices I'm chewing my food carfully and drinking pleanty of water and even taking e-3 live. I'm at a very healthy weight, but I feel like I need a good internal cleaning done i'm only able to "go" once a day on average and Its never enough. I've been considering taking colon cleansing pills, but I'm really confused as to weather this is a good idea at all and if I should just stick to eating more fruits and veggies instead. do you have any advice?”

Well, I certainly have some guidance, yes…do some colon cleansing. I would recommend you immediately go and get a series of colonics with a registered colon hydrotherapist – preferably 5-6 to start with. This is a KEY element for people to handle detox well – keeping up with the waste that is being released into your system. Most of us have DECADES of old junk stored in our cells…going raw is like going into a life-long cleanse – like hitting the ‘clean out cells NOW’ button and the body starts to throw out all kind of waste. The colon can quickly get overwhelmed if you’re still EATING and so it’s dealing with the usual flow of waste, PLUS all the old waste too, that you’re trying to suddenly eliminate now…there is SO much to say about all this and what it really comes down to is this: you can go raw and NOT do colon cleansing if you like…you can do that…you’re just not going to have anywhere NEAR as easy time of it as if you did some colon cleansing…I recommend too that you get hold of a good enema bag to do ‘maintenance’ cleansing at home. There are fabulous 6-quart bags you can get now, from HERE. These huge bags work almost as well as having a professional colonic – they’re quite amazing for getting all the way round the colon, clearing everything out.
I would also recommend you read something like Dr Norman Walker’s ‘Colon Health’ book – HERE. As he so wonderfully puts it:

"Not to cleanse the colon is like having the entire garbage collecting staff in your city go on strike for days on end."
Dr. Norman Walker, D. SC., PhD.

Colon health is integral to the health of your whole body and not to be yes, please, by all means, TAKE CARE OF YOUR COLON ;)
One love,

  1. thank you for answering my question. I am going to try colon cleansing pills at home because right now I cannot afford to have the colonics done at this time, i'm really strapped for cash. as soon as I can afford to I will though. thanks again.

    I have another question for you today, how long do you wait after eating to drink water? I notice you drink A LOT of water, and I want to drink more water myself but i was told to wait 3 hours after eating. and if i'm only eating between 11 and 7 its difficult to get 3 meals in and lots of water and juices, or so it seems.
