Dr. Sandra Tuszynska, Ph.D - Research Biologist Turned Raw Food Advocate

Dr. Sandra Tuszynska, Ph.D, has left the academic world to bring this message to a wider audience: raw fruits and vegetables are man's natural foods, and the key to health.

A research biologist with a Ph.D in cell biology, Tuszynska said she grew tired of the best research being buried in favor of studies funded by large corporations. She's decided to take her message out of the lab and into the public sphere.

Tuszynska, 32, recently published, "Fruitful Nutrition," which suggests a low fat diet of raw fruits and vegetables. She now concentrates her efforts on educating the public in her home country of Australia.

The following interview discussing her path toward health, her book, and her current goals was conducted in September of 2010.

Sandra Tuszynska Q&A:

Andrew Perlot: Please tell us a bit about yourself and how you came to start a raw food diet.

Sandra Tuszynska:
I was born in Poland and had lived there for the first 12 years of my life. After that I have moved to Australia and have lived here ever since. I am a “recovering“ scientist. I have always loved nature and at school I just loved biology and environmental studies. The natural world always fascinated me and I always perused to understand it. I have been in love with all animals and insects all of my life and have always had deep compassion for them.

Sandra Tuszynska: My Vegan Journey  

I became aware of how food choices influence our body, mind, spirit and our environment during my degree in agricultural science. We often went to farms and I witnessed animal cruelty first hand. It was heart breaking watching and interacting with a veal calf, the by-product of a dairy farm. The few week old calf was made anemic to keep his flesh white and marketable as supposedly a newborn.

These animals are kept in confinement to prevent them from growing muscles which are red and therefore no longer marketable as the white veal flesh of new born calves. The animal was deprived of iron and roughage to prevent its development, so it sucked a ring of my finger and chewed on my hair. I later found out the reasons behind it from a book called "The Silent Ark" by Juliet Gellatley and I became a vegan overnight.

I vowed not to ever again contribute to the cruel industries that exploit animals in the name of profit. I immediately began to research human nutrition in order to optimize my own well being but also to share the knowledge with others. I was extremely lucky to have had the scientific training and access to medical and nutritional journals.

Despite the painful experiences at university farms and the horrendous reality of the animal and grain industries I learned about in lectures, I persevered in my degree. My first research project during my honors year was the biodegradation of pesticides in a cotton field's soil. I was determined to regenerate the damage agricultural practices have caused to the Earth, animals and us. 

During my PhD I researched heavy metal toxicity and detoxification in cells of fungi, which live in symbiosis with forest trees. This allowed me to understand the mechanisms of how cells function and interact with nutrients and toxins. It allowed me to understand the biology of human cells and by that stage I had a very sound understanding of nutrition.

Sandra Tuszynska: I Became A Frugivore 

I have continued to make improvements to my own diet. I gave up fried foods, oils, refined carbohydrates, bread and eventually packaged foods. I felt better with each step but I also continued to experience digestive discomforts and I was determined to eliminate them. 

I once tried eating a raw food diet and only lasted a few weeks. I ate mostly salads and felt hungry all the time. I did not realize at the time that I needed to eat more fruit to provide the calories in the form of simple carbohydrates. I decided to continue eating cooked foods but ate most of my vegetables raw and increased my fruit intake.

Eventually, about 3 years ago, a newly met friend told me that he eats only fruits and greens. I have only dreamed of being a fruitarian but have never found substantial evidence to support that way of eating. My friend told me that he felt so great on this diet that he was bouncing off the walls. I was very eager to try and by this time I was adventurous enough and had enough nutritional knowledge to experiment with my body further.

My friend also lent me a book called the 80/10/10 diet by Douglas Graham which I read in a day.  The information resonated with me on such a level I was completely convinced that eating fruits and leaves as a staple is the way to go.

I began eating fruit mono meals, one fruit type at a meal until feeling full or satisfied. I felt fantastic, my energy levels increased and my health improved dramatically. My athletic performance increased, I felt happier and clearer in my thoughts and with my emotions. This new lifestyle allowed my emotions to surface and thus to make profound changes in my life, a career change, letting go and becoming more honest with myself and others. I have experienced crisis moments and emotional challenges when I traveled back to Poland. This allowed me to see just how much better I feel eating the natural human diet.

Sandra Tuszynska: Fruitful Nutrition

Andrew Perlot: What did you hope to achieve by writing "Fruitful Nutrition," and what sets it apart from the many raw food books out there?  Many raw food books are high on the anecdotes but light on backing it up with facts. Have you attempted to do something different here in terms of citing references for your statements?

Sandra Tuszynska: I wrote Fruitful Nutrition to share the knowledge and experience I have been blessed with in order to encourage others to thrive.  I wrote it to allow others to understand the biology of how our body interacts with foods and non-foods. My aim is to change the perception that disease, suffering and old age are a part of life. It is something we have been conditioned to believe and accept as our reality.

My belief is that superior health is our normal state of being and a nature given right. It is achievable by anyone who is determined to experience it. I wish to empower others to take their health into their own hands, by dispelling nutritional myths that plague our society. I believe that by adopting our natural diet we have the potential of full liberation of ourselves and our society, to restore paradise on our Earth.

Fruitful Nutrition is different to other raw food books in that it touches upon the subjects of food combining, calorie restriction, fasting, the emotional side of eating and mental poise. It provides essential tools to optimal nutrition. I also embrace the principles of natural hygiene, which look at the mind, body and spirit from a holistic approach, interconnecting the three levels of our being.

I have revived the works of Dr. Herbert Shelton, Dr. Edward Howell, Dr. Douglass Graham, and Ross Horne whom I believe to be pioneers in their fields and whose work has contributed to helping thousands of people out of suffering brought on by inadequate nutrition. 

Sandra Tuszynska SmileI also go into depth about tying our eating habits and foods as well as stimulants with our emotions. This is a largely overlooked area which determines the success of a raw food diet. Understanding our emotions, how foods affect them and how we use foods to suppress them is of key importance to our growth. In turn I believe that this affects our mental and spiritual development.

I always provide references which I believe to be of value to contribute to the validity of the concepts explained. However, nutrition, like other scientific data, is very fragmented. We try to prove or disprove particular concepts by testing isolated nutrients, for example vitamins but nature does not refine and isolate anything. We use other animals such as rats in experiments to derive nutritional evidence for the human diet. Such experiments are not a true reflection of what is happening in our body.

There is a lack of research in the form of clinical trials to show the benefits of consuming raw foods because there is no funding for it and because such research would be against the most powerful industries including the food and drug industries.

Nonetheless, some of the fragments of research that is out there can be strung into a whole , giving us a good glimpse at the benefits of a raw food diet based primarily on fruits and vegetables.

Besides, books, research papers and articles used as references, I also provide the links to free online resources to provide further reading.

I truly believe that the only way to prove to ourselves whether something is true or not is to experience it for ourselves. Only our own body and mind can tell us whether a particular way of eating is of value to our body. I encourage others to trust their own wisdom.

We have been brainwashed into believing the current nutritional dogmas which are very much in place to generate profit for food and the pharmaceutical industries. Achieving optimal health is only limited by the beliefs that have been instilled into us from generation to generation. The fear of becoming malnourished and sick, by not getting all the essential nutrients is so strong that we are afraid of trusting the truth based on our anatomy and physiology.

The reality is that we have a surplus of molecules which we consider to be nutrients, and toxins which are suppressing our metabolic functions including nutrient absorption and assimilation. One only has to look at how similar we are to other primates to understand what the true human diet is.

Sandra Tuszynska: Nutritional Research and Getting The Message Out

Andrew Perlot: Did your diet spur your research or did your research spur your diet?

Sandra Tuszynska: Initially my experiences during my degree allowed me to make a choice about what I ate. When my health and well-being improved, my diet shaped my choice of research. When I started eating primarily fruits and raw vegetables, I realized how dissatisfying lab research can be. I realized that most of the beneficial research is hidden from the public. Any research that shows environmental and health solutions is rarely implemented unless it generates profit.

My biggest desire was to share what I have learned about the food industry and nutrition with others. I had a dream to teach it at university one day but eventually realized that it is the average person that needs to hear it. It is the mothers and fathers, the nurses and doctors that need to learn about the biology of eating. So finally I made the quantum leap, I left the lab and ventured into the public.

"Fruitful Nutrition" has allowed me to share this profound message with others on a much deeper level. I am connected to my readers, we have a relationship, it is just beautiful. The food I eat allowed me to do what I truly always dreamed of. The funny thing is that my name – Sandra – means the helper of people and I feel that now I am living up to its definition.

Sandra Tuszynska: The Reception of Raw Ideas

Andrew Perlot: What do academics think of your dietary ideas and preferences? Do you think raw food diets are taken seriously in the field of nutrition or are they still too fringe?

Sandra Tuszynska: I don’t  have much to do with nutritional researchers except for the ones that have already awakened to the need for a frugivorous diet. There are not many of those. One thing I can tell you is that it took me some years to discover and unlearn the bias and half truths we are being taught at university. I can imagine that the once someone is qualified in the field of nutrition, it must be very difficult for them to question the dogma they have been trained to believe in.

A large proportion of the concepts in biology, physics and biochemistry as I am sure in psychology and many other sciences are not based on the reality or laws of nature.

I am sure that my current low fat, raw vegan diet would be just crazy to most of my peers. As a vegan in the environmental sciences circle I stood out, some people were vegetarian, however once I adopted the natural human diet it did not last long before I left the university career. This reminds me that my last PhD supervisor did ask for a copy of the book once it was written so I have yet to see what the response will be.

Certainly the field of nutritional research is often funded by food companies such as Coca-Cola and Nestle as well as the meat and dairy industries, so we can imagine what the aim of the game is. The field of nutrition is relatively young and very impressionable, it is still very much concentrating on isolated nutrients. This means that lots of the research is aimed at recommending dietary supplements.  There is however lots of clinical research showing the benefits of fruits, vegetables and sprouts.

We need to study the effects of our natural diet of raw foods on various disease conditions for there to be a major shift in our beliefs. I think that the presence of raw food diets in the media will shift nutritional research to look at the benefits of raw foods, the more hype we make about it the better. So it is up to us, the consumer to start making thing happen, we need to realize our collective power and create the demand for things to shift in the nutritional filed.

Sandra Tuszynska: Interesting Research

Andrew Perlot: What research/studies into raw-food-related topics have caught your interest?

Sandra Tuszynska:
I have looked at some studies related to the formation of toxins as a result of applying heat to foods, the microbiology of the large intestine, the physiology and biochemistry of digestion. I have carefully studied the mechanisms of fasting and food combining principles mainly from the works of Dr. Herbert Shelton.

Another area of research I find fascinating is that of enzyme nutrition. I have studied the texts and research of Dr. Edward Howell, an expert in the field, whose work has been undermined. I believe that our university text books have to be rewritten to embrace his novel research which has been available now for nearly a century.

Sandra Tuszynska: Advancing The Raw Message

Andrew Perlot: After decades of research into the cause of disease, the idea that a vegetarian diet is superior to a meat-based one is just starting to get some notice. Do you think the idea that raw fruits and vegetables are the best foods for us will have an equally long slog to recognition? Are we anywhere close to getting the dominant paradigm of patching up symptoms replaced with one of preventing disease by removing the cause?

Sandra Tuszynska: I agree with the slow spread of the vegetarian/vegan message.  I believe that it has been so slow because of government subsidies of the meat and dairy industries. Also these industries have a strong hold on funding nutritional research. The media advertising animal products and the lack of exposure of nutritional studies which show the harmful effects of animal products on our health is another contributing factor.

The medical profession not being taught adequate nutrition and being thoroughly trained about how drugs affect metabolic conditions is also a clear indication of the influence of drug companies on health care. These work hand in hand, the promotion of the lethal diet and the quick fix with magical pills to suppress the symptoms.

This is changing fast with the advent of the Internet.  I must say that there is a tremendous amount of research showing the value of fruits, raw vegetables and sprouts now available. I guess the more people learn about it, the more articles there are on the topic and the more websites promoting raw foods, the more likely it is to hit the masses very soon.

The collective or mass consciousness is changing, we are seeing the light. We are awakening and aspiring to regain quality in our life. Even a year ago when I tried to share this knowledge it was a slow process. Now I find that people are craving this message, people are empowering themselves and more and more of us are demanding a healthy lifestyle. We tend to be following our intuition, going back to nature for our answers.

This leads the way to a preventative lifestyle, but it needs to come from a positive desire to be happy and healthy rather than from a fear based place. This means that instead of eating more fruits and vegetables simply to avoid disease we need to look at these foods as the primary source of nutrients, as the staple and as a pleasurable and the easiest source of food.

Sandra Tuszynska: On Raw Food Failure

Andrew Perlot: A lot of people fail in their attempts to become raw foodists. Surveying the many raw food diets and gurus out there, where do you think people/diets are going wrong?

Sandra Tuszynska: I believe that most of us need to ask ourselves “what is my motivation for eating raw foods?” Once we know the answer to that questions we need to ask ourselves “what does the body and mind need to thrive?”  and “what group of animals do we belong to” This is where simple logic comes into the picture: Too Gourmet For Health

Sandra Book HoldThe raw food movement is just like any of the other food movements. For example, many vegans substitute meat with tofu and other meat substitutes. Soy milk is used to replace cow milk. Similarly we create raw recipes to substitute our favorite cooked foods. While this is a worthwhile approach to transition into a healthier diet, we still fail to look at our nutritional requirements. Many of the recipes use poorly combined ingredients and are difficult to digest. While they taste delicious they do not make us feel on top of the world.

Raw cakes just like baked cakes are usually made from fat and sugar combination in the form of nuts, agave or dates. This food combination is very difficult for the body to digest, the fat from the nuts traps sugar in our bloodstream. It causes excessive insulin demands which attempts to remove the sugar out of the blood stream and to deliver it to the cells waiting for glucose. For as long as fat is present in the bloodstream, it coats the glucose, insulin molecules and the blood vessel walls, trapping the glucose within the bloodstream.

This drains our pancreas as it keeps pumping out insulin and preventing the delivery of the much needed glucose to our cells. When our cells are deprived of glucose we keep craving food to satisfy the need. Low glucose levels in the brain cause us to feel depressed and we tend to reach out for suboptimal food choices to numb our dissatisfaction.

Sandra Tuszynska: Suboptimal Fuel Mixture

Many raw diets contain far too much fat and protein and not enough carbohydrates. All of our cells require glucose to fuel them. When we fail to supply sufficient simple carbohydrates, our body is forced to convert either fat or protein into glucose. These conversions are energy expensive and create toxic by-products. As a result we compromise our energy supply and tend to feel dissatisfied on a diet that lacks simple carbohydrates.

Many of us eat mostly vegetables as the primary source of nutrients. While organic vegetables are filled with minerals, essential amino acid and some vitamins they are low in calories. To attain enough calories from raw vegetables would require us to eat all day long, so we tend to supplement our vegetable based diet with nuts, seeds and even oils. This approach as mentioned above is difficult for the body to process.

This is especially true if we consume large amounts of nuts and seeds which have not been soaked. They contain enzyme inhibitors which prevent nutrients from being released form nuts and seeds and inhibit digestion.  This is very draining to our limited enzyme making potential and is inhibitory to our metabolic processes.

Sandra Tuszynska: Fruits - The Optimal Food Choice

We need to consume enough fruits in order to supply sufficient calories in the form of simple carbohydrates and we need to be aware of the food combining principles. Fruits are the perfect human food. We have co-evolved with fruit trees, fruits are the reward we gain from helping to spread their seed.

Our ability to see color is an adaptation to spot the beautiful colors of fruits which are so attractive to our eyes.  Most fruits fit perfectly into our hands and they are easily pealed. The sweet smells of fruits entice our senses. The sweet and delicious flavours stimulate our brain’s pleasure center.

Most importantly fruits provide us with the perfect source of glucose to fuel our cells. Glucose is most easily attained from fruits. Our cells require a constant supply of glucose especially our brain, nervous and muscle cells. Glucose keeps us happy and we need to embrace and respect our sweet tooth as a signal of our natural dietary requirement for glucose.

Fruits are also the only foods which do not produce toxic by-products upon digestion, reducing our toxic load and thus energy expenditure for detoxification.  This allows more energy for play and other metabolic functions.

Another clear indication that we are designed for fruit consumption is the fact that we do not synthesize our own vitamin C. All of the animals which rely on fruits as their main source of calories have no need to produce their own vitamin C because this vitamin is plentiful in most fruits. On the other hands, animals designed to eat foods other than fruits, synthesize this vitamin. Vitamin C is essential for our immune system function and we have a high demand for it. When our requirements are not being met we quickly succumb to symptoms of dis-ease. I call it fruit deficiency.

Sandra Tuszynska: Practice and Trust

Another important aspect of adopting a raw food diet is that it takes some time for our body to adjust. Most of us have been raised on cooked foods and our body is not used to processing naturally any more.

For some of us it is easy, while others struggle. Persistence, perseverance and belief in our body’s wisdom are essential tools for a successful dietary transition. Most of us are riddled with fear about getting enough protein, fatty acids and micro-nutrients. For years nutritional propaganda has worked on instilling fear into us, disempowering us from trusting our own instincts and intuition.

Trust and surrender to nature are the most essential tips I can provide. When we look at the diet of the animals that resemble us so closely, our relatives the great apes, it becomes clear what we should eat. I believe it is this simple.

Sandra Tuszynska: Setting Achievable Goals 

Another important thing that causes people to fall off the wagon is the strictness they apply to their new diet. We all strive to be a 100% raw. This is sometimes too much for some of us, not because it is too difficult to be eating only raw foods but because we have high expectations of ourselves.

We become disappointed with ourselves when we are tempted with cooked foods, and yet all of our lives we have been conditioned to eat those foods which we associate with being social, with comfort and other important aspects of our being. 

For some of us it is much more beneficial to transition into the diet over time, for others it is best to dive right into it. I have certainly been an advocate of going cold turkey but I have also experienced a down fall. Now that I have no expectations of myself and have more awareness of my emotions, I naturally prefer to eat fruit more than anything else.

Having guilt trips after eating cooked foods is a form of punishment. We lack compassion towards ourselves. I believe that depriving ourselves at times can be more damaging than having the food and enjoying it. If we do choose to eat something we strive not to, we might as well enjoy it and have a positive attitude towards it rather than punish ourselves for having it. So all this depends on an individual. The main thing is to make sure we have a clear reason for changing our diet. We need to believe in it and in our body and allow room for being gentle with ourselves.

Sandra Tuszynska: Social Support 

Support from others is one of the most important factors which determines the outcome of our journey. When we surround ourselves with others that eat like us, it is easy to sustain our diet. However, when others eat the foods we used to, it is much more difficult to stay raw. We are social beings and we feel the need to be a part of a tribe, to be accepted and to share meals. For this reason it is essential to find others who are on a similar path.

However, by far the greatest reason why we keep craving those foods we know we don’t need or are in fact harmful to us, is to do with emotional cleansing. When we remove all of the stimulants, junk foods, cooked foods, poorly combines meals and excess fats from our diet, our body becomes cleaner, free of toxins and uninhibited. As our blood stream and organs purify and there is a free flow of information in the neurological pathway, our thoughts and emotions become clarified.

This is fantastic when we are leading the life we really want to live, we just become more happy and appreciative of it. However, when our diet is optimal but other aspects of our life and not so satisfactory, our emotions will surface to let us know that something is not quite right. Most of us have not been trained in how to deal with strong emotions, we see them as something undesirable. When they arise, we view them as painful and try to suppress them.

Sandra Tuszynka Laugh

The easiest way to do that is with suboptimal food choices. Chocolate, fatty foods, cakes, cooked foods etc. These stimulate us, cause our body to respond with leukocytosis, an immune attack which raises our body temperature, much energy is expended on digestion and this diverts energy from our thoughts and emotions.

So, suboptimal food choices numb our emotions. Yet, emotions are there to alert us, they are a signal that we need to evolve something in our life, be it a dysfunctional relationship, a job or whatever it is. We need to embrace all of our emotions, no matter how strong, sit with them, cry through them, laugh through them, discuss them, be one with them and ask ourselves what it is that they are trying to tell us.

Only by adhering to clean dietary habits can we achieve emotional freedom in order to live a wholesome life, become happy in all areas of our life and live to the highest of our potential.

Fruitful Nutrition elaborates on all of the areas discussed above and goes into detail on how cooked foods and poor food combination inhibit digestion, assimilation and our emotions.

Sandra Tuszynska: The Benefits of Raw

Andrew Perlot: What benefits have you noticed since going raw (health, fitness, mental, happiness, or anything else)?

Sandra Tuszynska:  Within the first week of going raw, adapting the low fat vegan diet based primarily on fruits and leaves, I experienced a tremendous increase in energy. My yoga practice improved dramatically, I was able to do twice as many salutes to the sun than before and felt a much stronger desire to exercise. I immediately felt more vibrant, lighter and more flexible. I also became much happier and more driven to achieve my goals.

My digestion significantly improved. As a child I suffered from severe constipation, I had very rare bowel movement, sometimes only once a week. This improved when I became vegan but I still experienced painful bowel blockages once in a while and often had to resort to an enema. I achieved a regular bowel movement and ceased being constipated only when I gave up grains and other cooked foods and based my diets on fruit and greens.

Sandra Tuszynska: Menstruation As Detoxification

I have also eliminated PMS and eventually menstrual bleeding, which used to last 10 days for me with considerable pain, before I turned vegan. The menstrual blood flow occurs only when the womb contains toxins. It is a cleansing mechanism, a form of detoxification to prepare the womb for the potential of an egg being fertilized.

When our bodies are relatively toxin free, the womb does not need to shed and use the ultra sterile menstrual blood to detoxify it. However, we still continue to ovulate. I know a number of women who ceased to menstruate as a result of a raw food diet and who fell pregnant easily and basically on demand. In fact, they experience no nausea or vomiting as these are also attempts to detoxify the body at the early stages of pregnancy. This is a very sensitive topic, hardly ever discussed. I would like to empower women with the fact that we do not need to bleed each month to be fertile.

Sandra Tuszynska: Life Transformation

I have made life changing decisions since living on living foods. I have left the life of a lab based research behind. I felt constricted indoors and being institutionalized. I noticed that I was no longer satisfied with that lifestyle and had decided to instead follow my biggest dream to share what I have learned about food and nutrition with others. I have been able to resolve relationship issues by being able to let go and by becoming more aware. I have developed much stronger and meaningful friendships and find that I am able to attract the most beautiful people into my life. I have noticed more compassion, clarity of thought, more love and appreciation for life. I am much more peaceful and I have mostly eliminated any negative thought patterns. Basically I have transformed my life completely and I am very grateful to be alive, I sometimes think that life cannot get any better, only to see that it does.

Sandra Tuszynska: Fruits

Andrew Perlot: Favorite fruit and favorite fruit hot spot?

Sandra Tuszynska: There can never be my favorite fruit, as most of them are just divine. Some of my favorites include mango, durian, mangosteen, bananas and custard apples. One of my biggest dreams is to live in the tropics and really enjoy being a true frugivore. I am not far off, living in a subtropical climate right now. At the same time I love all the European varieties of fruit too.

The favorite fruit hot spot is Tropical Fruit World which is filled with subtropical and tropical fruit varieties. It is like the Garden of Eden for me.

Sandra Tuszynska: Final Thoughts

Andrew Perlot: Anything else you like to say or add?

Sandra Tuszynska: I would like to share my vision of where I see humanity is heading. I believe we are heading for that Garden of Eden, Utopian Paradise scenario. I believe that once the majority of people start consuming their natural frugivorous diet for which we are designed, the world will become a peaceful paradise here on Earth. I see that as more and more people begin to eat fruit as the staple food many of today’s problems will be solved.

For this to occur we need to be planting our own trees, in our yards, on the sidewalks and anywhere there is space where a food producing tree can grow. In this way we will annihilate the need to drive to the supermarket and rely on money as food will be abundant.

We are the only species on earth that has created a system which forces us to work all of our lives to be fed and sheltered. I find this very disturbing.  Mother Earth feeds all of her children unconditionally and this is the birth given right of all species on our planet, yet we have given away that right to profit makers. I am determined to change that.

Growing our own food trees will also encourage us to share produce with one another, creating social interaction, communication with our neighbours and strong communities. Hungry and homeless people will be able to feed from the street. Fruit trees will provide shelter and food for wildlife encouraging biodiversity, connecting us to other animals. Trees also create rain, oxygen and are a carbon sink, they produce more calories in the space they take up than any other food type. They are the only really sustainable food source.

Farming will no longer be required as there will be no demand for grains, meat and dairy. This will free up lots of land to accommodate people. No farming will significantly reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, pesticides and artificial fertilisers which are oil based. This will reduce pollution of our environment and in our bodies.

Fruits are produced for our consumption, they are the most compassionate way of nourishing ourselves, creating the least harm possible to us and to all else. We need to connect with our food, it needs to be imbued with our DNA for it to produce what we need and the only way to do it is to have an interpersonal relationship with the plant that provides us with food. I believe that one of the most significant contributions to the dis-eased society that most of us live in is the disconnection between us and the food we eat. There needs to be a level of communication, love and respect between us and the  beings which serve us with food.

Once we eat the most compassionate diet based on fruits and leaves, we will become more compassionate beings and our society will become based on the values of love, compassion, respect and oneness. I invite you to join me in the efforts to start manifesting this reality, I can be reached at: http://fruitfulnutrition.com/

Thank you so much Andrew, it has been a great pleasure to have the opportunity to voice my experience. I hope it is of benefit to others and to helps pave the way to a very fruitful future.
