About Creative Health Institute ............................................................................................... 303

Cooking foods above 118 degrees Fahrenheit destroys digestive enzymes. When this
happens, the pancreas, salivary glands, stomach and intestines must all come to the
rescue and furnish digestive enzymes...to break down all these substances. To do
this repeatedly, the body must rob, so to speak, enzymes from the other glands,
muscles, nerves and the blood to help in its demanding digestive process.
Eventually the glands - and this includes the pancreas - develop deficiencies of
enzymes because they have been forced to work harder due to the low level of
enzymes found in cooked food...Your chances therefore of not putting a burden on
your pancreas are better if you eat as much raw food as possible.

Preface

Dr.AnnsTeachings

Dr. Ann Wigmore usually disagreed with the use of culinary herbs (with a few
exceptions)andspices.

For many people this field is incomprehensible because it is so large. Some herbs are
strong in flavor and many wild edibles resemble poisonous plants that the amateur
forager many unwittingly use. Proper identification is most important and practicing
withprofessionalguidanceisrecommended.

Herbs, medicinal and culinary, and spices, including garlic and onions, kick the body
intodoingthingsitssupposedto(forcingtheissues,insomecases),insteadofeasing
the body through its healing (in other words, too harsh and sudden). It is not
recommended that those dealing with degenerative or terminally diagnosed diseases
useherbsandspicesuntilafteratleastthefirstthreemonths,orbetteryet,afterone
yearonthelivingfoodsprogram.

Dr. Ann never used or recommended any type of fermented salty condiment. Dulse
and kelp were the two mainstays for a salty taste containing minerals and trace
minerals.Nothinglikesoyornamashoyuortamari.

WhatistheBasicCauseofDisease?

Dr.AnnWigmoretaughtthattoxemiaanddeficiency
aretherootcausesofalldisease.

Deficiency that means that our bodies are undernourished and are not receiving the
proper types and amount of food the body needs. The digestive tract is being
overloadedandallergieshavedeveloped.Dr.AnnWigmorebelievedthatabouteighty
per cent of the population has deficiency disorders because of the bodys inability to
digestfood.Thisiswhyshedevelopedmethodsforblending,sprouting,andfermenting.
Living Food is supremely efficient nourishment that returns the body to health and
productiveselfhealing.
Toxemia is a term used to describe poisons that are stored in the body. Toxins are
formed from eating impure or unnatural, processed and chemicalized foods. Dr. Ann
taughtthatthebodycanreleasethesestoredpoisonsbyfeedingitwithLivingFoodin

WhatAreRawLivingFoods?

are also some other foods that fall within this category such as seaweeds, raw carob
powder and certain spices and seasonings. Whole, ripe, raw, organic foods in their

What is the Basic Cause


of Addictions?

The reason so many people have addictions is that their bodies have not received
proper nourishment. Nutritional deficiency is a very serious condition. If the person's
body is undernourished, energies are depleted, resulting in physical and emotional
imbalances. When the nourishment of Living Food is supplied in easily digestible form
the body, mind and emotions become balanced and whole again. It has been proven
over and over again that when the body receives ample and balanced nourishment
thereisnodesireforstimulants.
In400BCHippocratessaid, "Letfoodbeyourmedicineandmedicinebeyourfood."
Thomas Edison, inventor and visionary, said, "The doctor of the future will give no
medicine,butwillinteresthispatientsinthecareofthehumanframeanddiet,andthe
causesofdisease."
Until1900foodtherapywaswidelypracticedasawayofhealingthesickandkeeping
the healthy well. The advent of the Henry Ford tractor in 1905 changed the face of
American farming; the prairies erupted with mountains of corn, soybeans and oats,
whichwerefedtocows,chickensandpigs,whichthusbecameaplentifulstapleofthe
diet, instead of being specialoccasion dishes. Americans went from a low fat, high
fiber, plantbased diet to one centered on high fat, lowfiber, animal based foods.

"Leaveyourdrugsinthechemist'spot

Hippocrates

"In many of the segments of culture today, the meaning of life is


often reduced to cruising with the popular culture. It doesn't take
a course in psychoanalysis to glimpse severe anxiety behind this
posture of know-nothingness.
If you had ideas and took yourself seriously, you would have to
be constantly awake, educating yourself, and getting involved
with your community. It's safer to hide out in a pretense of
ignorance. For that is what cool mindlessness is, a way to
sleep through life and not feel the sting & challenge of being
engaged."

TenAdvantagestoEatingRaw
bySusanJorg,Estacada,OR
The human race learned long ago that cooking meat before eating it would protect
themfromcertaindiseases.Sincethen,thispracticeofcookinghasgrowntoincludeall
types of foods and is now considered an art. Very few meals are eaten which include
rawelements,exceptfortheleafygreensalad.

One advantage of eating raw is that it brings Natures intentions into focus. When I
speakofeatingrawIamreferringtofruit,nuts,andvegetables,whichtastegoodtothe
majorityofhumankindintheirbasicsimplicitydirectfromtree,bushorvine.

Irealizeitisnteasytosimplyabandonthousandsofyearsoftraditionandrevertback
to 100% raw food. Margaret Mead once said, It is easier to change a mans religion
than to change his diet. So, to the point, there are 10 advantages to a diet of fresh,
wholerawfruits,vegetables,andnuts,whichmayleadyoutofindagreaterplacefor
theminyourdiet.

1.Rawfoodsarebetterquality;thereforeyoueatlesstosatisfyyournutritionalneeds.
The heat of cooking depletes vitamins, damages proteins and fats, and destroys
enzymes which benefit digestion. As your percentage of raw foods increases you feel
satisfiedandhavemoreenergyonsmallermealsbecauserawfoodhasthebestbalance
ofwater,nutrients,andfibertomeetyourbodysneeds.

2.Rawfoodshavemoreflavorthancookedfoodssothereisnoneedtoaddsalt,sugar,
spices, or other condiments that can irritate your digestion system or overstimulate
otherorgans.

3.Rawfoodstakeverylittlepreparation,soyouspendlesstimeinthekitchen.Evena
childof5or6canpreparemostoftheitemsforbreakfast,lunchordinner.Thisgives
children a sense of selfesteem and independence, not to mention the break it gives
MomandDad.

4.Whenyouareeatingrawthereslittlechanceofburns,unlessyoureinthemiddleof

8.Aslongasyoucombinerawfoodproperly,accordingtotherulesofNaturalHygiene,
youwillsoonreachalevelwhereyounolongersufferfromheartburn,gas,indigestion

9.Itisenvironmentallysound.Withhumanityonadietofrawfoodsthefoodindustry
would close up shop and take up organic gardening. This would save us enormous

used in packaging our processed foods. There would also be less carbon dioxide
releasedintotheatmospherewhenallthecookingstopped,andmoreoxygenproduced
fromalltheneworchardsandgardens,thushelpingtoreversetheGreenhouseEffect.

10. Eating raw saves you money on food, vitamins, pots and pans, appliances, doctor
bills,drugs,andhealthinsurance.

Sodontwasteyourfood,yourself,andourplanetbycookingwhatyoueat.Fruits,nuts,
and vegetables, which are whole, fresh and raw, are brimming with life and have the
abilitytotransmittheirlifeforcedirectlytoyou.

To me, true health is...


achieved by following the
laws of nature; when you
break them, illness results.
Health is not something
bestowed on you by
beneficent nature at birth; it
is achieved and maintained
only by active participation in
well-defined rules of healthful
living - rules which you may
be disregarding every day.

Some researchers believe a


higher level of raw food in our
diet is very advantageous.
In one study, Douglass asked a
group of persons with high blood
pressure to add as much raw
food to their diet as they
conveniently could.
After six and one half months,
raw food was providing
approximately 62% of their daily
caloric intake.

Dr.AnnWigmore

He reported a statistically
significant reduction in both high
blood pressure and weight in
those consuming much of their
food raw. Eighty percent of
those persons on the raw food
diet also gave up smoking and
alcohol spontaneously.

photography, a method to
photograph the energetic
patterns of a substance, are
concerned about the major
differences between a fresh
strawberry and one that been
irradiated.
The fresh strawberry shines
with vital energy, radiating out
an inch or more in an aura with
vibrant patterns.
In contrast, the irradiated food
has virtually no aura, is flat,
dull and the patterns which
can be seen are significantly
altered.

is taught around the world. This lifestyle can open the door to personal
growthandunderstanding.

Each step we take forward is a step toward life and living and a step away
from death and dying. This includes cleaning up our own bodies (by
detoxification:throughdeepbreathing,skinbrushing,simpleorganicfoods,
etc.), our homes (from composting to growing indoors), neighborhoods,
cities,states,countriesandultimately,ourworld.

and rejuvenated on a cellular level. Much like the cells in our body, each
personwhoadoptsapositivealternativelifestyleiscleansed.Transitioning
happens as quickly or as slowly as YOU desire. Transitioning is a balance of

TheTransitionDiet

The purpose of the transition diet moving away from eating meat, processed foods,
sugar, white flour products, etc. to a total living foods diet of vegetables, fruit,
sprouts, fermented nuts and seeds is to allow the body to gradually cleanse away
accumulated waste materials until the whole diet is one of living foods. While on the
transitiondietyoushouldattempttoincorporateasmanygreen/sproutsaladsandfruit
mealsasyoucomfortablycan.Thiswillspeedupdetoxification,plusallowthebodyand

THEFIRSTPHASEinthetransitiondietistoeliminatedrugsandotherchemicals,meat,
tobacco, alcohol, white sugar, white flour, salt, coffee and all processed foods. This
may be a radical change for some people, as these foods have become deeply
ingrainedhabitsanddependencies.

youarereallychoosingsomethingbetter.

In the meantime, use as many live foods as possible to substitute for the refined and
processed foods. Use raw honey, raisins and dates instead of sugar; whole grains
insteadofwhiteflour;freshfruitsandvegetablesinsteadofcanned,frozenorpackaged
food. Youll notice a taste change, and in a short time your taste buds and mind will
automaticallychoosenutritiousfoods.

THE SECOND PHASE in transition is the elimination of mucusforming foods such as


dairy products milk, butter, cheese, eggs, yogurt, etc. Begin to substitute seed milk

KeepingaFoodDiary
ByEllaKennen

Studies have found that people who keep food journals lose more weight than those
who don't. Why? Because a food diary makes you focus on what you eat (and
sometimes also on when, where, and why). This knowledge leads to healthier eating
choices,lesscaloricexcess,andintheend,betterweightmanagement.

What exactly is a food diary? It's a record of everything you eat and drink including
sauces,snacks,candy,andwater.Besidesthisbasicrequirement,foodjournalscantake
manyshapes:

Maintaining a Raw Living Foods lifestyle as a single individual requires a new level of

Facts suggest clearly that the enzymes present in raw, uncooked food relieve
the pancreas and salivary glands of the necessity of enlarging from excess
work.
The considerable hypertrophy of the pancreas and salivary glands, which has
been found to occur in human races living upon large quantities of cooked
carbohydrates, indicates the nature of the intrepid but deplorable
compensatory measure the organism is forced to adopt and is added proof of
the profound influence for good enzymes naturally supplied in raw foods.
That the pancreas and salivary glands of human beings living upon the
customary heat-treated enzyme deficit diet are hypertrophied and overworked
organs is not difficult to believe.

There is not a known remedy that will cure diabetes without a reformation along
the lines that caused it...
Raw vegetables of all kinds - red cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, Brussels
sprouts, okra, cucumbers, onions, etc. A big emphasis needs to be placed on
raw foods as they stimulate the pancreas and increase insulin production.
Green beans and cucumber juice contain a hormone needed by the cells of the
pancreas in order to produce insulin.

Modern science has


figured out a use for the
toxic nuclear reactors.
Foods can be exposed to
radiation and thus be
preserved for longer shelf
life while at the same time
bacteria, fungus, molds
and parasites can be
controlled.
Consequently, rather
thank having to store
deadly radiation in toxic
waste sites, the radiation
can be used on our food
and spread out all over
the country...
We are concerned with
the question of what
happens to the nutritional
value of irradiated foods.
The simple answer is that
the nutrition renders the
food sterile or dead.
Jack Tips, ND, PhD, The
Pro Vita Plan

Patricia Hardman, Ph.D., Director of


Woodland Hall Academy, a school for
children with hyperactivity and learning
disabilities in Maitland, Florida, says,
"We can change a child's behavior
dramatically by lowering his or her intake
of sugar. If a child comes to school
extremely depressed or complains that
nothing is going right, or if he flies off the
handle and can't be controlled, we ask
him what he's been eating. It's almost
always the case that the night before he
had ice cream or soda or some other
food with a lot of sugar.
"We had one child who was tested for
his I.Q. and scored 140. Three days
later he was tested and scored 100! It
turned out that grandma had made the
child pancakes for breakfast. Of course,
they were smothered in store-bought
sugary syrup. We waited another three
days without sugar and tested him again.
Sure enough, he scored 140. There's no
doubt about.
Sugar makes children poor learners. At
Woodland Hall, sugar is eliminated from
the diet of every child."

WhatKindofReactions
CanIExpect?

For best results, wheatgrass should be taken on an empty stomach in the morning.
Wheat grass is a powerful cleanser and may cause a feeling of nausea shortly after
ingesting. This is an immediate response to the release of toxins within the system.
Therefore, start with small amounts, 1 to 2 ounces of juice 2 to 3 times per day.
Graduallyworkupto3or4ouncesaday(2ouncestwicedaily).Somepeoplechasethe
wheatgrasswithalime,lemonororangetosuckon.Singledrinksofwheatgrasslarger
than 3 ounces are not usually recommended because of the stirring effect this potent
enzymaticjuicehasonthestomachanddigestiveorgans.Butintheend,listentoyour
bodyandtakewhatittellsyouitneeds.

You may have What is termed a healing crisis, which we prefer to call a healing
reaction. It is important to understand that during the healing process we must be
preparedtoexperiencereactions.Inthenaturalprocessofhealing,asthebodymoves
towardsbalance,toxicresiduesinthebodymustbereleasedandremovedbythetissue
systems.Oftenthiscreatesanuncomfortableexperience,whichinnaturalhealingisthe
healing reaction. Not everyone will experience discomfort as they go through their
healingchanges.

Dont panic during these periods of cleansing. The sooner the discomfort is felt, the
bettertheeliminationoftoxinswillbe.Asthecleansingbegins,itwillbeaccompanied
by periodic aches and pains in the areas where the cleaning action is most acute and
wherethewasteisoverloadingtheeliminationsystem.

Do not expect these lifetime accumulations to be miraculously squeezed and flushed


out of the tissues and organs quickly. This process will take time; you didnt get toxic
and ill overnight, and you wont get well overnight. You will have high days and low
days.Duringacrisisyoumayfeelworsethanyoudidbeforeyoustartedthisprogram.
Thebaddayswillbecomelessfrequentandthegooddayswillcomemoreoften.Allow
at least six weeks and maybe many months to feel the healing effects of this

OttoWarburg,aGermanbiochemist,wonaNobelPrizeforhisstudywhichrevealed
thatcancercellscannotexistinthepresenceofoxygen.
The enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice contain antibacterial
compounds that are especially good at destroying anaerobic bacteria that thrive in
oxygenpoor blood and tissue. Certain infections, ulcers, and putrefaction are
caused, in part, by anaerobic bacteria that cannot live in the presence of oxygen
producingagentslikechlorophyll.

The traditional medical school


teaches that alcoholism is primarily a
mental disease, a personality
disorder or a weakness from which
the person is trying to escape.
The medical community fully
recognizes that an alcoholic is
generally malnourished, but the idea
that alcoholism might be caused by
lack of nourishment to the brain cells
has received very little consideration.
Dr. Roger J. Williams, former Director
or the Clayton Foundation
Biochemical Institute and first elected
President of American Chemical
Society, claims that it is quite
possible that malnutrition
develops as a forerunner of
alcoholism, and that it is only when
malnutrition of the brain cells
becomes severe that true alcoholism
appears.

Twenty-four hours after


volunteers ate their test
samples, five chocolate eaters
experienced pounding
migraines while the placebo
eaters showed no symptoms.
Asked what chemicals in
chocolate brought on the
migraines, Glover said that
they had not as yet been
isolated.
Yet, two of the strongest
suspects are catechin, also
present in red wine, and
theobromine, a biochemical
cousin to caffeine in coffee.
James F. Scheer - Health
Freedom News

"Furthermore", he states, "I will


herewith positively assert that no one
who follows good nutritional practices
will ever become an alcoholic."
Lynn Sorenson - Health Freedom
News

Add sauerkraut to any salad preparation. It combines well with all


vegetables and will help your body digest the meal. Blend or add into
sauces and soups for texture and taste. Juiced, it is an unsurpassed
enzymebuilder.

The variations in making sauerkraut are endless. Experiment with your


taste buds. Use different combinations of vegetables alone, carrots,
beets, celery, turnips and artichokes. Try different spices, thyme, dill or
basil. Additions for flavor could be onions, garlic or green peppers.
Remember when making sauerkraut, do not use salt. Table salt is
inorganic and often remains in the system. A better source of minerals
maybefoundfromseavegetables,suchaswakame,dulse,kelpandhijiki.

Modern science has figured out a use for


the toxic nuclear reactors. Foods can be
exposed to radiation and thus be
preserved for longer shelf life while at the
same time bacteria, fungus, molds and
parasites can be controlled.
Consequently, rather thank having to
store deadly radiation in toxic waste
sites, the radiation can be used on our
food and spread out all over the
country...
We are concerned with the question of
what happens to the nutritional value of
irradiated foods. The simple answer is
that the nutrition renders the food sterile
or dead.

Many spices are already being irradiated


to control the little bugs that hatch out...
We need to oppose irradiation because it
kills the life force in our foods, kills the
enzymes and maybe even alters
molecules into new chemicals. We all
know that radiation affects cells resulting
in mutations.
If new molecules are created or altered
by the irradiation process, they will be
extremely foreign to the body and
present new problems for the immune
system. Scientists opposing irradiation
of foods are concerned that such new
molecules may cause cancer.
They are also concerned about alteration
of the food's inherent molecular structure
making it unable to function as a food in
the body...

NutMylks

(Yields4cupsofmylk)

Nut mylks are a wonderful way to receive the power packed nutrients from nuts and
seeds.Whenyoudrinkyournuts,oreattheminacreamycheeseformittakesalotof
stressofyourdigestivesystem.

Nuts and seeds are sources of concentrated fats and proteins that are hard for our
bodies to digest. That makes it essential for us to thoroughly chew them when eaten
whole, but we can save our bodies a lot of added stress by making nut mylks and
cheeses.

Fermentingyourmylkstomakeyogyrtandkefirprovidesyouwithpredigestednutrients
inaliquidfrom,probiotics,andBcomplexvitamins.Fermentingcheesesbreaksdown
the dense fibers in nuts and seeds, making them even more digestible. Mylks and

In America our carbohydrate balance is usually way out of kilter. Most Americans eat

carbohydratesaretransformedintofat,whichisstoredasenergyreservesforpossible

high, our bodys efficient storage of calories as fat will win out over our need to

Many of those biochemists and serious clinicians involved in


the latest researched on refined sugar have condensed their
experience and research into one statement: "Consumption of
refined sugar is the most pleasant means of suicide." Only a
handful of these researchers and serious clinicians realize that
the above statement is only half true.
The latest research and serious clinical experience
demonstrate that consumption of refined sugar is a major facto
in all of the above conditions, plus many more.
The true part is that refined sugar consumption is gradual
suicide. The untrue half is that it is pleasant. Anyone who has
experienced the misery of constant tooth or gum problems, the
financial ruin of constant illness, the frustration of low energy,
the incapacitation of allergies, the pain of arthritis, the crippling
effects of a survived heart attack, or the terror of cancer is well
aware that no matter how gradual the process there is nothing
pleasant about any of these afflictions.

natural diet and the other half
received the kind of food the
average family uses.
At the end of two years, the
first group was essentially
free from disease while the
group partaking of a human

Lesson11Exercise

TheImportanceofExercise

The lymph system runs up and down the body like


rivers and streams. Lymph fluid bathes all cell tissues
and carries solid waste material from metabolic
processesinthecelltotheeliminationorgans,mainly
thecolonorlargeintestine.

The lymph system is very similar to the blood system


(together these two systems make up the circulatory
system) except that it does not have a pump like the
hearttomovethefluidaroundthebody.Movementof
lymphfluidisdependentonexercise.

Movingmuscles(exercise),jumpingagainstgravity(rebounding),breathing(deep
inhalation)andsqueezingthetissues(massage)areall
waystomovelymphinthebody.

The diaphragm is a lymphatic pump; therefore,


exercise is important. While exercising and inhaling
deepbreathsoffreshair,thelymphflowincreases5to
15 times. The most natural exercises are walking,
dancing, swimming, singing, rebounding, deep
breathingandaerobics.

ABriefHistoryof
ColonTherapy

The therapy of the colon (large intestine) and its benefits have
beenknownandpracticedforhundredsofyears.Datingbackto
ancienttimes,enemaswererecordedasearlyas1500BC,inan
Egyptian medical document called the "Eber Papyrus".
Hippocrates, Pare and Galen also advanced the use of enema
therapy. In earlier times, people implemented enema
treatmentsinariverbyusingahollowreedtoinducewaterto
flowintotherectum.

AtanearliertimeinAmericaenemaswereacommonlyused
proceduretohelpmaintainhealthandstaveoffdisease.

For example, before the departure of the Lewis and Clarke


expedition, a physician instructed them in the appropriateness
ofusingenemasincasesoffeverandillness.Ourgrandparents
and greatgrandparents grew up with the use of enemas as a
widely accepted procedure for reversing the onset of illness.

In the early 1900's in Battle Creek, Michigan, John H. Kellogg,


M.D.,extensivelyusedcolontherapyonsomefortythousandof
hispatients.In1917hereportedintheJournaloftheAmerican
MedicalAssociationthat,inallbut20cases,heusednosurgery

In times past, knowledge of the bowel was


more widespread and people were taught
how to care for the bowel. Somehow, bowel
wisdom got lost and it became something
thatnoonewantedtotalkaboutanymore.
BernardJensen,D.C.

ThepopularityofcolontherapyintheUnitedStatesreachedits
apex in the 1920's and 1930's. At that time, colon irrigation
machines were commonly seen, and regularly used as a
standardpractice,inhospitalsandphysician'soffices.Butinthe
ensuing 50 to 60 years the public's use of, and access to this
valuablehealthtreatmentgreatlydecreased.

Properbowelmanagementandhealthwillneverbe
achievedthroughtheuseofdrugsand/orsurgery.

Inthelast10yearstherehasbeenaresurgenceofinterestinalternative
medicineandpersonalhealthcareresponsibility.Onceagainpeopleare
discovering the many health benefits of maintaining a strong and
biologically sound colon. This return to using colon therapy has been
bolstered by the development of sophisticated colon therapy machines,
which make these therapies both safe and convenient.

Whya100%RawLivingFood
LifestyleisNecessary

Waterdeficientfood:
Cooked(dead)foodistotallydepletedofitswatercontent,whichputsatremendous
strain on our digestive system. Raw and living foods are 70+% water which allows
for optimal assimilation. Our body can extract all that is needed from raw food
withoutitfermentingorputrefyinginthebody.Preventingputrefactioninourcolon
is important because putrefaction creates a pristine environment for toxicity to
developinthebody.Toxemiaisthemajorcauseofalldisease.

Enzymelessfood:
The necessity of consuming enzyme rich food cannot
be overestimated. Enzymes are life itself and are
involved in every metabolic function in the body.
Enzymes are catalysts and transformative elements.
Enzymes found in raw foods are codes which tell the
foodwheretogoinourbody.Ifcookedfoodiseaten,
thebodyhastoreidentifythefood,recodeitwithits
own store of enzymes and attempt to deliver it to the proper tissues and organs.

When food is cooked, minerals quickly lose


their organic content. In such a state they

thus clogging it up with their cement like
plaque.

DenaturedProtein:
Cooking denatures protein. Denaturation alters protein and makes it unusable or
less usable by the body. All of the agents of denaturation (frying, boiling,
microwaving, broiling, etc.) are able to break the secondary bonds that hold the
chains in place. Once these weak bonds are broken, the molecule falls into a
disorganized tangle devoid of biological function. This is why cooked food is often
