Food Matters, uncovering the sickness industry - Watch this film!

Food Matters is a brand new documentary film about diet and health, with the subtitle "uncovering the sickness industry". Watch it, you don't have to be sick!
To buy or see the film, go to

Hippocrates: "Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food."

That's the message from the founding father of modern medicine, echoed in the controversial new documentary film 'Food Matters' from firsttime Producer-Directors James Colqhuoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.

"With nutritionally depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what's wrong with our malnourished bodies, it's no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. 'Food Matters' sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide "Sickness Industry" and giving people some scientifically verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally." - James

And in what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.

“Food Matters” is to be launched globally via the internet using full screen video technology.

Joel Fuhrman M.D. - You can cure diabetes with diet and lifestyle

Joel Fuhrman MD has cured hundreds of people of diabetes using diet and lifestyle. The American Diabetic Association wanted him to write an article about his work for their journal and offered him a check of $ 750,00. Doctor Fuhrman happily wrote the article. When the American Diabetic Association saw the contents of this article - people who cured completely of diabetes type 2 - they wanted him to adjust the article. Their journal is sponsored by Eli Lilly drug company, a pharmaceutical company that produces insulin. This company would not like the contents of the article. Joel Furhman didn't and the article was never published.

You can definitely cure diabetes type 2 with diet and lifestyle. Thousands of people are cured with the help of Gabriel Cousens, Brian and Anna Maria Clement, Ann Wigmore and so many others. I spoke to some of them in Israël, who were talking about a miracle that happened to them, after they changed their diet and lifestyle.

But ..... don't tell anybody it's possible to cure diabetes .... the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want us to know .... Shout it out ;-)

This is an excerpt from Dr. Furhman's presentation at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo 2007.

Raw food video: How to make raw vegan sushi and nori rolls

In this video, you can see the basics of making raw vegan sushi. Make sure to have the black nori sheets, they are raw. Some Asian stores sell green nori sheets, which are roasted. Instead of wasabi, you can take fresh horseradish, which is very similar to the main ingredient of wasabi and often used as a substitute. It has a strong flavor, so be careful. And buy raw natural nama shoyu, not the commercial kind.

Personally I add more things to the nut pâté, like fresh herbs, lemon and tomato. You can also use sprouts and edible weeds inside your sushi or nori roll. To close the noriroll, wet the seam with a little water. Press gently to make your roll firm enough to cut it into small slices. It´s a great idea to put it in the freezer for five minutes before slicing.

Enjoy your sushi!

David Wolfe on Ormus, the Light Body and Spirituality

David Wolfe tells about ormus, one of his favorite subjects.
He explains the connection with the light body and spirituality.
It made things much clearer to me.
Watch this interesting video and post your comments below if you like.

David Wolfe on hyper farming, using advanced natural technologies

In this video David Wolfe tells about his ideas on hyper farming, the ultimate farming using natural technologies like rock dust, sea salt, music and love. Technologies used by, amongst others, the great philosophers and scientists Hegel, Victor Schauberger and Rudolf Steiner.

I think this video is one of the best of this blog. David is telling exactly what I experience at the moment. After being on rawfood for some time, you want to go further. You start to eat more wild foods, superfoods and want to experiment growing your own superfoods, using traditional natural technologies. I’m experimenting with sea salt solutions on my sprouts and vegetables at the moment. David is taking it even further. And I do recognize the hyper synchronicities, he is talking about. They are happening all the time in my life and they sometimes even shock me.

David’s idea of being a flowist really appeals to me. When I was about 20, I was meditating in the Swiss Alps with Pir Vilayat, a Sufi master. I had the feeling though, that it was not right for me to be meditating on top of a mountain. I wanted to go out into the world and contribute to it's well being. That was the beginning of my worldwide search for the truth about health and diet.

David, I think you are brilliant,to show us that our possibilities are unlimited ;-)

Sprouting buckwheat, oats and sunflower seeds for raw granola

Sprouted buckwheat, oats and sunflower seeds form an excellent basis for raw granola. These seeeds are very easy to sprout. In this video Kevin and Anne Marie Gianni show you exactly how to do it.

Now is the time of year to sprout. In Chinese medicine spring is the time to eat a lot of sprouts, because the upward and growing forces of nature are the predominant energies right now. My house and garden are full of sprouts, that I grow with my kids. The kids love to water them and see them grow by the hour.

We add sprouts to all our dishes. With all the edible young weeds outside and our own sprouts we hardly need to buy any greens. Start experimenting. It's great fun!

Raw food lessons for kids: Hamsterman, no more sunflower seeds

A new episode in the series Raw Food Lessons for Kids.
Adults, you can skip this or ... enjoy it!

The danger of cell phones, laptop computers, electromagnetic fields

In this video Brian Clement speaks about the dangers of cell phones, laptop computers and electromagnetic fields in general. It’s part of the raw food lecture Brian and Anna Maria Clement gave in Amsterdam, March 2008.

Be careful with cell phones. It’s best not to use them at all. If you do need one, don’t have it close to your body, but in a handbag or so. Use an earphone and a BioPro to protect your brains. In your car, use a car system, if you can afford it.

People don’t realize, but children get cell phones at a younger and younger age.
Research in Sweden has shown that kids, who use cell phones double their chance of getting blastic types of brain tumors by the time they are 20.
In Russia they did a study on 150 thousand children. They found that children below 16 who use cell phones on a regular basis up to one hour a week, between 21 and 28 years old get a 37 times higher incidence of brain cancer.

The same is true for laptop computers. Never put them on your nap.
Children get ovarian and testicle cancer nowadays, because of laptop computers. Imagine, you stick a high power radioactive battery on your penis or vagina. What do you think is going to happen?

Wall sockets are similar. They radiate about 2 square feet. Place your bed in a save place, if possible.

We don´t realize, but electromagnetic fields are everywhere around us nowadays. Keep them away from your body as much as possible.

Realize that cell phones, Ipods, BlackBerrie’s and laptop computers take away all your contemplative time. You are constantly stimulated from the outside.
Everybody needs this contemplative time. At the end it all comes back to you, self love and self respect.

Organic food versus conventional food, what is the difference?

I love this video by Kevin Gianni. It's really fun and shocking at the same time.
Why should you eat organic food instead of conventional? Are organic foods really better than conventional foods? Watch this video and see why ....

You'd think that with the scientific evidence that pesticides are harmful and organics have more nutrients than conventional foods that people would start switching over. But it's not the case. Almost all people still eat conventional foods.

Hopefully this video helps to convince people that eating organic food is really important. Kevin created a fantastic demonstration, that hopefully will change people's perspective on the importance of organic foods.

Brian Clement: raw food diet for cancer, diabetes and heart disease

Brian Clement tells about Ann Wigmore, who healed herself from colon cancer. She was told by her doctors, that she had only six months to live. Her grandmother taught her about natural health and the use of plants for healing, when she was a child. In her fifties Ann Wigmore decided she had no choise, but to start eating natural foods. She healed herself completely from colon cancer.

After this experience she felt, she had the obligation to teach the world about her experience. This is how the Hippocrates Health Institute started. Ever since thousands of people from all over the world have come to the Hippocrates Health Institute (nowadays in Florida) and healed themselves from cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other serious illnesses.

Throughout history the people who spread the light and came with great ideas were often considered odd, like many raw foodists nowadays. Modern research brings more and more evidence of the importance of a raw live-food diet. A great example is the "China Study" by Colin T. Campbell PhD, in which Colin Campbell proves that animal protein contributes directly to the different forms of cancer.

Dr. Barbara Hendel: how to make sole from Himalayan crystal salt

Dr. Barbara Hendel demonstrates how to make a sole drink from natural Himalayan ground salt or crystal salt and natural spring water for a daily energizing and detoxifying drink.

This sole drink is very easy to make. You dissolve Himalayan ground salt or crystal salt in good quality water. Use enough salt, so that there is still salt visible on the bottom. This way you make a sterile salt solution of 26% salt.

Take a teaspoon or half a teaspoon of this sole and mix it into a glass of good quality water. Drink this every morning on an empty stomach. This sole drink contains the energy of the sun (sole means sun in Latin) and is great to build up energy. It also helps your digestion and to detoxify.

You can take this sole every morning for six weeks or two months, stop for a while and start again. You will feel much better and have more energy.

David Wolfe: Our ultimate goal is to create heaven on earth

What is our ultimate goal? To create paradise or heaven on earth. To work with the earth, not against it. To make it a better place than it was originally. The goal is not just raw food or any other diet, but to rectify all our wrongs by making this world a better environment. The missing link in all success technology is this ultimate goal.

Forget that you will ever know everything. It is impossible. You either know nothing about everything or everything about nothing. That’s the beginning of all wisdom. You can’t explain why a spring comes out of the mountain, but you can benefit from it. That's the most important.

My grandpa used to say: If you don't feel it, I can't explain it.
We have forgotten to feel what is going on with ourselves and with our planet.
Feeling brings us closer to the truth than thinking.

Victoria Boutenko makes raw almond milk, an easy raw food recipe

Victoria Boutenko makes raw almond milk. In this video you see, how fast and easy it goes. Going to the store to buy soy, rice, nut or cows milk takes a whole lot longer and is much more expensive. A Vitamix (or any other blender) full with fresh almond milk costs you about 50 cents.

You can keep this nut milk in the fridge for about two days.
Instead of almonds, you can use sunflower seeds, macadamia's, cashews, walnuts, sesame seeds or any other kind of nut or seed. It is best to soak nuts overnight or at least four hours before you use them. This makes them easier to digest. Throw away the soaking water.

The leftover pulp from the nuts is great in salads, desserts, pies, dehydrated crackers or smoothies. You can also make seed cheese from it.

The importance of natural digestive enzymes in a raw food diet

Dina Khader speaks about the importance of natural digestive enzymes in the raw food diet. Natural digestive enzymes in our food are essential for good health. If we cook our food, we kill the enzymes and it becomes much harder to digest. By cooking our food, we stress the pancreas, which has to produce the enzymes to digest cooked foods. If we eat a raw food diet, we get plenty of enzymes with our food. This makes the food easier to digest and even builds a buffer of enzymes in our pancreas. Most people don't eat enough raw food. Sometimes a supplement of digestive enzymes can be helpful for a while, while you transition to a raw food diet.

Dr. Barbara Hendel: Himalayan crystal salt, sole as natural cosmetic

Dr. Barbara Hendel, the author of "Water and Salt: the essence of life" tells how you can use Himalayan salt as a natural cosmetic. When you take a normal bath, your skin dries out. If you add 1% Himalayan salt to your bath, called a sole bath, your skin becomes very soft and smooth. It is moistened in a very natural way and even wrinkles disappear.

You make a sole bath by dissolving 1 kilo (2 pounds) of Himalayan salt in water at 98,6 degree Fahrenheit (body temperature). At this temperature minerals can enter your body easily and toxins can come out easily. Stay in this water for 20 minutes. Don’t rub or take a shower afterwards. The salt must remain on your skin. You will be surprised by the natural softness of your skin.

This bath also gives you energy through the minerals in the salt. During the full moon the sole bath is more energizing, during the new moon it is more detoxifying.

Viktoras Kulvinskas is one founders of our modern raw food movement. He founded the
Hippocreates Health Institute, together with Ann Wigmore and wrote the health classic
"Survival into the 21st Century".

In this video he speaks about the importance of enzymes. In the near future the influence of enzymes will far exceed the total influence of physics en chemistry in the previous century.
Viktoras was a visionary 50 years ago and I think he still is.
