I forgot to tell you that I worked for and with Dr. Ann Wigmore for over 22 years in Boston and in Puerto Rico, helping her transcribe and write her answers to her students and some of the things she put in her books.
I'm a naturopath who has certified in Plant Based Nutrition with Dr. T. Colikn Campbell (The China Study) and his crew at eCornell, and in Nutrition in Clinical Practice with Dr. Neal Barnard at George Washington University Medical Center's collaboration with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. I teach people in a clinic in Homestead, FL about the Cure for Diabetes (A 21 day program), by Dr. Gabriel Cousens, a wonderful raw food medical doctor at the Tree of Life Center in Patagonia, Arizona, where I spent almost a week, a heavenly time, learning the program..The programs for various disease reversals and cures are basically the same: get off animal products,10"% fat, 10% protein, plant based, no oils, no dairy. I personally eat raw and mostly fruits when it's hot like it is now.
Hi! Nice to meet you, Katie! (:
I'm super lucky, my dad tends to be extremely open-minded and chill about what my brother and I do. It took a little bit of discussing to convince them, but it wasn't a horrible struggle.
I did do a video with 'tips for raw vegan teens', and I discuss dealing with parents a bit in it. Here's the link, if you'd wanna watch, http://youtu.be/9b2IEdg7neI
