Ifyc)u've picked up this btlt)k outofcuriosity,you '


ve probably
already heard som ething aboutthe healing and energizing
pow ers ofraw foods
Raym ond Francis,M .SC. R.N.C ,in his hook,NeverBe Sick
Again:Health is a Choice LeatwtHow to Choose Jf explains why
raw foods heal. Hum an disease m anifests in m any form s but
ithas only one underlying cause:cellular m alfunction.
Cellularm alfunction in turn has only two causes:deliciency
and toxicity. Since coeking yourfood destroys vitalnutrienta
and enzym es,the only w ay to give yourcells a)1the nutrients
they need and protectthem from substances thatare toxic or
unusable,is to eata dietthatis atleast 80% raw ,and 100%
whole and organic.
The evidence Raym ond Francis presents includes his own
recovery from near-fatalliverfailure and ehem icalhepatitis,as
wellas an inspiring look atthe healthiestpeoples on the
planet,including the disease-free Hunza people ofthe
H im alayas.
M any NaturalHygienists and colon therapists agree with
Raym ond. The naturally high fiber contentofraw foods is the
key to a healthy digestive system and colon,and therefore to
the ahsorption ofoptim um nutrition forevery cellin your
body. For m ore inform ation read The NaturalH ygiene

Living foods com e stocked with their own digestive enzym es.
W hen we eatlifeless,enzym e-less foods ourbodies m ust
create digestive enzym es pulling enerKy from other areas and
organs ofthe body,w hich is why eating cooked foods creates a
feeling ofletharo r,or the feeling thatyou wantto take a nap.
Eating raw willhelp keep yourenerjw naturally elevated.
Conserving the body's enzym e resources is particularly

BLO O D W PES AN D ALKALIN IW


Naturalcarnivores have acidic blood and shortcolons. Hum an
beings have alkaline blood and long colons like otherplanteaters. Eating cooked and processed foods and anim al
products raises ouraciditjrunnaturally which in turn eauses
degeneration and disease. This is true for al1hum ans
regardless ofblood type.
To alkalinize your blood rely on raw plantfoods,especially
fresh citr'us fruits,leafy greens and alm onds. Form ore
