Better Health in the Raw

I’ve been home with my dad for the past few months.

He had a stroke and needed some support while recuperating.

It’s been like - I’m the parent and dad is the child.

And as a parent, I’ve been in charge of the meals.

The first thing we did was to remove the fuses from the stove – a safety factor following a minor mishap.

That opened up the question from dad - “What do we eat now – we can’t cook?”

“Leave that to me” I said, “I’m a bit of a gourmet salad maker. ”

And so for the past two months or so, dad and I have been living on a raw diet of fruits, vegetable salads, dried fruits, cheeses and some wonderful wholemeal breads.

  • Dad has lost a bit of weight – and I’ve gained a bit – go figure!

  • Dad is sleeping better – in fact, he now sleeps through the night whereas before, he was up and down like a monkey in a coconut tree.

  • His bowels are functioning a lot more regularly.

  • The pain that he was regularly experiencing in parts of his body are now intermittent and of less severity.

  • He gets out and walks for 20 minutes each day, greeting people in the neighbourhood and stopping for occasional visits with friends.

  • His eyesight hasn’t improved.

  • His hearing is down by 1/3 – however, I can play his stereo and it doesn’t bother him.

  • And his memory is sometimes laughable – like when I found a bowl of porridge in the crockery cupboard.

    But all in all, he’s really happy with his improvement and he feels so positive about his diet that he rarely misses the opportunity to tell everyone – “I eat it raw now – we don’t cook our meals. ”

    Does it work?

    You bettcha!

    Just give it a go for a short time and watch the results.

    Keep warm in the raw.
