"Raw Emotions", article by Matt Monarch
The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.When people realize that I have stayed on a 100% Raw Food Diet for over 12 years, since switching overnight, they frequently ask me, "How do you deal with family members and friends when you go raw, without feeling like a total OUTCAST and weirdo???!!!" My answer is... YOU DON'T!. I don't mean to sound like a 'downer', yet the truth of the matter is that if you choose this lifestyle, the majority of the population will likely think you are NUTS! Even when people just go on a vegan or vegetarian diet, they often report feeling like an outcast. Now imagine only eating Raw Vegetables, Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds...while at the same time your appearance is changing, which the majority overweight population may interpret as 'unhealthy weight loss'... I never had any major health challenges and 12 years ago I became a 100% Raw Food Eater OVERNIGHT after reading Dr. Norman Walker's book, 'Become Younger'. I didn't even know a Raw Food Diet existed at the time. This book revealed to me that what I thought to be healthy foods, which I was consuming, were actually truly damaging to my body. I read this book in one night and went 100% Raw the next day. I was just a 24 year old kid learning about health and trying to do the best for my body. I was EXCITED about my discovery to say the least, and I had NO IDEA about the reactions my loved ones were going to have... Unexpectedly, I found that I started to feel like a TOTAL OUTCAST with everyone I knew. With hindsight, I feel fortunate that I was not the type of person who was willing to shape my personal life based on others' expectations. In deep emotional pain, I left the area where I had lived and started over again, totally on my own, without even one familiar face. This is when I started my business and also learned about meditation. Always an 'extremist' and alone for five years, I went deep into creating our business here and also stayed in a meditative state perhaps almost as much as a Buddhist monk. For these first five years I really felt like an introvert and had very little contact with the outside world. From the intensive meditations, I was healing and felt like I was becoming a 'wiser' person. However, this was all inward growth, my social skills were depleting, and I had minimal contact with the outside world. I assume that others felt uncomfortable to be around me at this time, as I felt uncomfortable in my own skin when I was around others. It wasn't until five years after starting on this new path that it felt like I started to finally grow outwardly too. It all started when I began to let representatives of the conscious females of this species into my life, which was the COMPLETE CATALYST for my outward growth. This period of growth whilst dating these women was painful for me. I learned that I was SOLELY responsible for any energy and/or feeling that I experienced. I began to learn to become social again, respect others, become courteous, and communicate with the outside world. I learned to create boundaries and not be 'walked on' by others (male or female) by speaking my COMPLETE truth, no matter how uncomfortable it may feel... and then... three years later... I met my wife-to-be, Angela Stokes-Monarch... This was truly the ICING on the cake. To learn more about my personal story, I recommend purchasing my first book 'Raw Spirit'. For those of you who don't know, Angela used to weigh nearly 300 pounds. She lost more than half her body weight by choosing a raw food lifestyle and you can learn more about her at www.RawReform.com. After Angela lost the majority of her weight, she found herself in a sticky, challenging relationship that ended on a SOUR note two years later. A BEAUTIFUL elder woman named Jeanette took Angela in for a few months, to help her get back on her feet. I have met Jeanette and she is one of the most enjoyably inspiring 'spiritual' teachers I have ever met. Daily, Angela communicated and meditated with Jeanette, which helped transform this shy young girl into the wise goddess she is today. As many of you may know, when a person attempts to follow a 100% Raw Food Diet, their psychological and emotional issues will most likely rise to the surface, calling for attention. It seems to me that the heavier a person is, the more traumatic these emotional issues can be. Between Jeanette's guidance, attending 'recovery' meetings, and drawing on her own SUPER will, Angela was able to maintain her 160lb+ weight loss, plus simultaneously explore and repair her emotional relationship with food. This is a real rarity and just shows right here, that Angela Stokes-Monarch is an authority in the field of "Raw Emotions". Angela doesn't entertain ANY relationship drama whatsoever and she spots this type of drama instantaneously when it arises. Before I met Angela, I had never met anyone like this, who doesn't accept or support an INKLING of drama within their lives. Angela seems to have the ability to PINPOINT the roots of any negative energetic expressions that arise in practically ANYONE!!! Initially, for COUNTLESS MONTHS I would defend myself after any ERUPTION of mine that she would pinpoint. At the times I wouldn't settle down she would just send me LOVE until I would work the things out that I was SOLELY responsible for. Today, over four years later, I have grown and learned so much with Angela. I feel that she has rubbed off on me QUITE A BIT and I now feel happily settled into our "No Drama" lives. We both feel so blessed as we travel through our blissful lives together. I want to pass on as much of this life-shifting information as I can, to EVERYONE. One way I can do this is by offering Angela's BEAUTIFUL 'Raw Emotions' book at HALF PRICE! Angela's book, 'Raw Emotions' is a culmination of her life's journey so far on emotional growth. I have seen so many emails to Angela where people tell her how much they've been crying and releasing old emotions as they're reading this book. When you read 'Raw Emotions', there is no avoiding the truth anymore...and this book seems to be truly helping people to create more vibrant lives for themselves. This special 50% OFF offer includes both the printed and ebook versions of 'Raw Emotions' and is valid until February 28th. I wanted to give you the opportunity to get this amazing book at such a low cost, because I am sure of the benefits you will receive from reading it. If you can learn even just a little of what I have learned from this woman, then I believe you will be in GREAT emotional shape. I am always just trying to keep up with this woman as we constantly grow together... To purchase the 'Raw Emotions' printed book or ebook at half price, click HERE!
Hurom Juicer - Last Chance!!!
I just got notification from the makers of the Hurom Juicer that the MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) of this juicer is going to rise from $329 to $359 on March 1st. This means that NOBODY is able to sell the Hurom Juicer below that $359 price mark, from March 1st. We are trying to convince them to keep it at $349, to match the Omega VERT Juicer pricing, which is quite similar to the Hurom, yet I don't know how our efforts will pan out... NOW (over the next 4 days) is the IDEAL time to purchase a Hurom Juicer as this low $329 price will no longer be available, after February 28th. The price of the Hurom had always been $359, but they then offered an instant rebate of $30 for the Holidays and then extended it until February 28th.Angela and I use the Hurom Juicer every day and it is now our number one choice for a juicer. It is the FASTEST juicer on the market that doesn't oxidize the juice. It's a REVOLUTIONARY juicer and I highly recommend watching our three videos below on this juicer so you can see it in action for yourself: Hurom Juicer vs Green Star Juice, Episode #272 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_blKzX5NFdU Does the Hurom Juicer do Wheatgrass & Banana Ice Cream?, #278 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ee0P8-eyHXo What is the Hurom Slow Juicer?

New Products at The Raw Food World
Sun-Dried WHOLE Persimmons, 8oz I am SOOOO ADDICTED to these Sun-Dried WHOLE Persimmons. They are SOFT, SWEET, and SO GOOOOD!!!! It's an ENTIRE persimmon SUN-DRIED!!! I'd have to say these persimmons are one of my favorite foods right now. Ojai, CA is KNOWN for their sweet tasting sugary persimmons and now you can get these WHOLE persimmons sent to your door step. Next time you order from our store, be sure to include these in your shopping cart. They are a delecacy and you won't regret it.I was at a health food store in Ojai when I ran into these FRESH Sun-Dried WHOLE Persimmons. My mouth started salivating as I looked at them. Immediately, I contacted the supplier and ordered a MASSIVE amount of these luxurious treats to put on our website. We are always seeking to get the BEST foods in the WORLD to share with you!!! We caught the man in charge of Sun-Drying these WHOLE persimmons, when he dropped them off at our warehouse and we decided to film him. Enjoy... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDZxkRmHS-g Becoming Raw: The Essential Guide to Raw Vegan Diets You want to know where you get your protein from on a Raw Food Diet? How about your calcium, magnesium, iron, iodine, selenium, phosphorus, manganese, sodium??? How about Zinc? Or do you wonder about how many calories you need? Well, I am NEVER going to answer one of these questions again. My answer in the future will be... BUY BECOMING RAW!!! :-) This book contains a wealth of information on the raw food lifestyle. Nutrition experts Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina provide the essential information needed to safely embrace a new dietary lifestyle. As they did for vegetarians and vegans in "Becoming Vegetarian" and "Becoming Vegan", they now present the first authoritative look at the science behind raw foods. And both old converts to raw foods and new recruits alike will be fascinated with food historian Rynn Berry's presentation of the first narrative history of the raw foods movement in the United States. More people are jumping onto the raw foods bandwagon either to lose weight, fight chronic health problems, or simply to benefit from the high level of nutrients found in uncooked or sprouted foods. Readers will find science-based answers to tough questions about raw foods and raw diets, easy-to-follow nutritional guidelines, and practical information on how to construct a raw diet that meets recommended nutrient intakes simply and easily. A section of over forty-five recipes provides dishes for any time of day and every occasion. Nutritional analyses are given for each recipe. Also included is a section on which foods and equipment are needed to get started and which raw food preparation basics are good to master. This book is truly a major contribution to the raw foods movement. Here are all the latest new additions to The Raw Food World Store:
'At-Cost' SpecialsIf you didn't know, there is a Carob Powder "Drought" right now. We are apparently the ONLY company that has TRULY RAW carob powder right now on the market. Before this drought began, we purchased 2000 pounds of raw carob!!!... AND... I want to offer it to you 'At-Cost'. Carob is the BEST chocolate replacement out there. Many raw chefs utilize this magical ingredient from the trees, to match that chocolatey taste. Now would be an IDEAL time to stock up on carob ;-) I am VERY EXCITED to offer the Bariani Olive Oil 1L bottles to you this month as an 'At-Cost' special. I am pretty confident that when you experience Bariani Olive Oil you will not go back to any other brand. My mom LOVES the Bariani Olive Oil and will not touch any other brands out there. I have always been hearing how Bariani is like the Cadillac of Olive Oils, ever since I entered the Raw Foods Community over 12 years ago. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting your Bariani Olive Oil 'At-Cost' today. We are also offering our MSM caps 'At-Cost'. This MSM is derived from DMSO and I feel good about taking it; Angela actually takes it every day. Additionally, we are offering Healthforce Nutritionals 'Acai Resveratrol' antioxidant product 'At Cost' this month. This is probably the most powerful antioxidant product on the market. We are offering it 'At-Cost' because on our Radio Show this month we are interviewing Jameth Sheridan and he is excited to talk about this product in GREAT DEPTH and its benefits. After I heard what he had to say about it, I STOCKED UP, because I knew it would fly out the door and due to its extreme benefits, I wanted to get it out to people at a very affordable price. Last but not least... We've got Tooth Soap from Perfect Prescription as an 'At-Cost' Special too. Many health advocates out there including myself utilize this tooth soap to brush our teeth daily. We sell a mass of this Perfect Prescription Tooth Soap every week, due to its popularity. We are offering the two most POPULAR flavors at cost... Peppermint and Spearmint AND in both forms - liquid and shreds :-). Tooth Soap is free from any chemicals or toxins that can damage teeth. This is the IDEAL time to try or stock up on this unique product. We also have an exciting'Below-Cost' special this month. I felt bad that the Pine Nut butter ran out last month so QUICKLY, so I REALLY STOCKED UP this time HEAVILY and we are going to offer it for 'JUST PENNIES' this month. Enjoy!!! :-))) And don't forget!!! We have this special Blendtec offer this month also... Here are the special offers:
The Raw Food World Radio Show - Dr. Jameth SheridanWe are having so much fun here at The Raw Food World with our monthly radio shows! The last interview we did, with Daniel Vitalis, was simply INCREDIBLE!!! It was so interesting in fact that I just couldn't end it... Normally we go for about 1 hour and 15 minutes but with that call we almost made it to the 2 hour mark! Everyone has been RAVING about it on our Facebook pages! I am EXTREMELY EXCITED to announce that our next guest on The Raw Food World Radio Show is... Dr. Jameth Sheridan! Jameth rarely gives interviews, so we're very excited to connect with him for this LIVE call. Jameth says he would love to talk primarily about Antioxidants in this upcoming interview. He told me that this will likely spiral into the subjects of cancer, wholefood antioxidants and the new product we have 'At-Cost' above... the Acai Resveratrol Antioxidant Supreme. He was excited to say that this is just the TIP of the iceberg of what he would love to share in this interview. As many of us know, Jameth is COMPLETELY AGAINST the consumption of Raw Chocolate. Normally, I don't give too much attention to this subject matter in our interviews... HOWEVER!!!... this time I intend to DRILL Jameth with questions on the topic of RAW CHOCOLATE!!! Additionally, as usual... I think that I can come up with some pretty intriguing questions for our friend Jameth... Including... What does Jameth think about eating an 80% Fruit Diet... ;-) Don't miss it!!! Join us for this exciting upcoming interview on February 23rd at 6pm (PST)!
