Wanted you to know that your web article on the secret of raw food success led me to my first colonic and I cannot thank you enough!!!!
Thanks for all you do for the raw community!
I love your blogs!! Keep up the good work!!
I just finished reading your 'Raw Spirit' book which I loved and I have a question regarding the tooth whitening supplement called Active H. Does this really work?? because I have never heard of it and it seems to good to be true!! What kind of a supplement is it?? Is it a pill?? a paste?? Where can I get it??
Thanks for any info on this.
I always get this question and I am excited to answer it here in the blog. Here is the excerpt about Active H in my book 'Raw Spirit':
While guzzling delicious vegetable juices and spooning green food supplements, your teeth can easily start to look yellowish and stained. I remember looking in the mirror one day thinking my teeth had rotted; they were such an awful color. Horrified, I assumed my teeth were leaching minerals from the inside out. I refused to go anywhere and couldn't bear to smile. Desperate, I called Dr. Bisci. He explained that my teeth were likely just stained and told me to go to the dentist and get a cleaning; or brush thoroughly with a Sonicare toothbrush while sprinkling on the bristles the supplement Active H. Active H is negatively charged hydrogen ions and is probably the most powerful antioxidant in the United States. Two hours of brushing produced some seriously white teeth. Since then, I learned to rinse my mouth out with water every time I drink a vegetable juice and that helps keep the staining to a minimum. Occasionally, I’ll need to use Active H for another teeth whitening treatment.
Yikes! I remember that week vividly. I was soooo depressed! However, my teeth were Soooooo white after using the Active H, it was MIRACULOUS! Keep in mind that the stains I had came strictly from green food powders, which at that time I was taking masses of. I can't guarantee that it is going to work for any type of tooth stain. Some people have really yellow teeth - maybe from smoking, for example. However, if your teeth are stained from green foods and veggie juices, I can guarantee it will work. I would try it regardless. It's a great supplement to take anyways. It is a bottle of little capsules that contain powder. You just empty the powder out onto your toothpaste, which you've already spread on your tooth brush. When I did it for the first time, I sat there for over an hour just brushing away. My teeth were so WHITE, my friend couldn't believe it. If you do try it, I'd recommend you get a sonicare electric tooth brush and try brushing for a LONG time. Let me know the results. You can get the Active H, HERE.
I'm a raw food teen (19) and I'm new to it but I've healed about a dozen major health problems. I was a cooked vegan before. Anyways I met this good looking guy at Starbucks (I go there for tea) and we are hitting it off. I haven't talked to him on a personal level though. If we go out how do I break it to him that I eat raw food without him running away? When do I tell him and where and how? I'm really nervous and have been up for hours at night tossing around about it. I know that’s sad haha. PLEASE help.
Oh Kelsey... I don't think that's 'sad'. The social ramifications when living a lifestyle that less than 1% of the human population follows can be quite difficult. I didn't realize how harsh it was on me until one day at a lecture, I was talking about the social issues I experienced with my family and friends. As I did this, a tear started to run down my face.
Forget the short-term; let's look at the long-term here. Let's say you actually end up being with him for three months. If anyone here is going to have an issue about the relationship, I bet it is you. I can see it now. I can see you sitting at a nice dinner with him as you watch him scarf down Gluten-Filled Pasta topped with STRAIGHT MELTED BUTTER and a slab of a dead carcass to go with it. To finish it off he decides to eat a sugar-laced cake to wash it all down. Oh... and don't forget that goodnight kiss.
Oh man... I think I may have been a bit harsh here. If anyone wants to give Kelsey some advice, email it to me and I'll pass it on to her.
I would be true to yourself and I guarantee that you will meet a man worthy of your Raw Beauty. Being Raw is a bonus, it's HOT! I can count numerous men who have switched over to being Raw, SPARKED by a woman. In the past, women I dated who were not Raw, switched over. They wanted to experience shifts like soft skin, a sweet smell and a stronger vibration for themselves.
Don't get discouraged and start eating in a way that is not true to you. I remember a story of a woman who didn't smoke but all her friends did. The smoke hurt her lungs soooo badly that she couldn't be around her friends anymore. She decided to take up smoking so she could be with her friends. She became very addicted and got cancer. Many people don't stay Raw for the same reason. They want to eat with their friends, so they start eating like their peers, at expense to their own well-being.
Matt, thank you for the very informative post today. Really appreciate what you share on all your posts,actually! I was wondering this: I tried Colosan about 3 weeks ago (after noticing it posted on your blog!) and think it is a very good product. After just using it for only one week the skin on my face really improved alot! My question is - how do you recommend using Colosan. After viewing that colon video on your site (wow!) I feel even more sensitive about colon health (and water quality!) ... should I use it in a regular - even daily - way?...(I was thinking about using it per the instructions on the bottle next week for a week).Hope you have the chance to respond.Kindest regards,Sharon
Yes, do it like the bottle says. I would do it for as long as they say to do it. Let me know the results. Then I can share them with my mom and hopefully she'll take it. Doing colon hydrotherapy WHILE doing the Colosan will give you the ultimate skin beautifying results. WHOA!!!!
