Greetings from Matt Monarch

WOW!!! That was an EXTREMELY informative Radio Show Interview with Dr. Ed Group this week. We covered his three main focus areas of cleansing, which included colon cleansing, liver cleansing and parasite cleansing. We even touched a little bit on Breatharianism. I fell in LOVE with the idea of his Livatrex product during this interview. Instead of doing a typical liver cleanse with Epsom salts and olive oil, you can just replace the apple juice or malic acid capsules with this special medicinal herbal Livatrex product. You can even put the Livatrex IN apple juice if you like! It's brilliant!   The playback of this interview is FREE until next Friday, February 18th! ADDITIONALLY, Dr. Edward Group is allowing us to offer 25% off of his Oxy-Powder, Livatrex, and Paratrex products for ONE WEEK ONLY, until Sunday, February 20th.   Make sure to listen to this free informative interview by clicking HERE!   In this newsletter you can explore:

Top 10 Habits to Succeed with a 100% Raw Food Diet, 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.   It does not seem like an easy task to eat 100% Raw for many people. Below is a list of what I have found to be the TOP TEN habits of successful, long-term 100% Raw Food Eaters. The TOP of the list is the MOST important habit from my point of view and the effectiveness decreases from there. In my opinion, there can be a BIG difference between a 95% Raw Food Eater and a 100% Raw Food Eater (which will be discussed in a future article). If you are not on a TOTALLY 100% Raw Food Diet, you may not understand or resonate with the need for all of these habits listed below. Additionally, this list is to be understood in regards to long-term success. If you currently weigh 500 pounds and are just starting a 100% Raw Food Diet, it may be a while until some of these habits come into play for you. Please note: this article is based on anecdotal information and personal experience... The Top 10 Habits of a Successful Raw Foodist:   1. Cleanses the colon on a periodic basis ;-)!!! 2. Never veers from eating raw. 3. Doesn't overlap meals (eating another meal before a prior meal has digested). 4. Drinks green vegetable juice on an empty stomach every day. 5. Eats "Micronutrient" Absorbable Foods on an empty stomach every day. 6. Practices consistency (eating roughly the same kinds and quantities of food every day). 7. Eats simple whole raw foods the majority of the time (e.g. fruits, vegetables, nuts & seeds). 8. Their diet is unaffected by the opinions or actions of other people. 9. Only eat dehydrated foods and/or at raw food restaurants on rare occasions. 10. Breathes clean air more often than polluted air.  

The Raw Food World Radio Show - Ron Strauss and many more...

This week on Friday, February 18th at 11:00am Pacific time, we are going to be interviewing "Lyme's disease fighting" Ron Strauss on the radio show! Ron was bed-ridden for 3 YEARS combating Lyme's Disease and he is going to be sharing with us exactly how he cured himself from it. Ron is going to be discussing WHY a 100% raw food diet can be IDEAL, and also compare a diet that includes raw or cooked animal protein. He will also be discussing his approach to diet and how he feels one's diet should be geared towards each individual's characteristics. Ron will also be talking about what he calls "Industrial Strength Healing" which is his approach to educating people about how to reverse cancer and other degenerative illnesses without the use of cut, burn and poison technologies. Ron is a successful practitioner who helps HUNDREDS of people healing degenerative diseases, including Lyme's, cancer and much more... Ron will be sharing with us the almost unknown causative factor for virtually any disease known to man.

COMING SOON!!! on The Raw Food World Radio Show...   The following week we will have Natural Parenting Expert Veronika Robinson on 'The Raw Food World Radio Show'!!! :-))) When a person is taken out of the "Matrix" and they finally REALIZE all of the MIS-information that they have been exposed to all of their lives, Natural Parenting ALWAYS seems to peek its way into this kind of revolutionary picture at some point or other! Personally I was BLOWN AWAY when I first saw a comparison of a hospital birth compared to a natural home birth, for example. We might like to think that the bright lights, rough towels, heel pricks, encouraged cesareans and other things that take place in a hospital don't affect the baby...yet there is nothing further from the truth. Veronika Robinson is one of those RENEGADE mothers on the forefront of Natual Parenting, who has dedicated her life to sharing the truth in regards to natural birth, consious parenting, breastfeeding and much MORE!!!   You WON'T want to miss this interview!!! Angela and I read BOTH her books, plus we have her whole magazine collection and were blown away by them all!   Maryam Henein, one of the writers and filmakers of the documentary "Vanishing of the Bees", is going to be on our Radio Show on Friday, March 4th. Maryam has dedicated her life to sharing this message about the bees and is as passionate as can be about this subject. Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across our planet for quite a few years now, literally vanishing from their hives. Maryam Henein has played a HUGE role in the creation of this MUST-SEE informative documentary, called 'Vanishing of the Bees'. You can view the trailer here below: Vanishing of the Bees - Trailer from Bee The Change on Vimeo. Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees...   AND!!!... Many more Radio Show interviews to come!!!  

 

New Products at The Raw Food World

 

Schisandra Berry Extract This Schisandra Berry Extract is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!! What an EASY way to get the MaGiCaL properties of the Schisandra Berry into your smoothies and elixirs! Schisandra is renowned for its ability to nurture beautiful, soft, and radiant skin. It is also a powerful brain and memory tonic. As a sexual tonic, it is said to increase fluids and sensitivity in women, and has an astringing quality for male endurance.   Dragon Herbs Tao In A Bottle - 100 Caps We HAD to pick up the new product 'Tao in A Bottle' from Dragon Herbs. This is one of the most POPULAR products that Dragon Herbs carries and when you look at the ingredients and its benefits, you will know why! "Tao in a Bottle" is Dragon Herbs' number one selling encapsulated product. It is a remarkable adaptogenic formula that is made from the concentrated extracts of six of the greatest tonic herbs in the world: Gynostemma, Duanwood Reishi, Ginseng, Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero), Schizandra, Tibet Rhodiola, Astragalus and Ginkgo Biloba. It also includes the amino acid L-theanine, found naturally in green tea. L-theanine is a unique ingredient that has powerful anti-stress actions when consumed in the correct dose.   Dragon Herbs Duanwood Reishi - 60 caps We also wanted to further expand our Reishi line with the highest Quality Reishi Products available, so we made sure to carry Dragon Herbs Duanwood Reishi. Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is the most revered herbal substance in Asia, ranking as the elite substance for the attainment of radiant health, longevity and spiritual attainment. It ranks in Asia with Ginseng, Deer Antler, Rhodiola, and Cordyceps as a pre-eminent tool in the attainment of radiant health.   Flavor Extracts These potent flavor extracts just DON'T lose their popularity. Still on top, the most popular flavor extracts that we carry are Dark Chocolate, Coffee, White Chocolate and the Vanilla extract. As our good friend and Raw Chef Solla said, these flavor extracts can turn any raw chef into a magician, because of how they can miraculously transform any recipe. We just got the new Raspberry Flavor extract in, and it is INCREDIBLE, as you can perhaps imagine! This Raspberry Flavor extract is a real flavor that is extremely potent! A single drop is enough to flavor most things. A favorite with children, great for Italian sodas and for refreshing your drinking water.   Natural Calm Sports Bath Natural Calm Sports Bath is a combination of Natural Calm magnesium and Redmond Real Salt... a completely natural mineral sea salt that comes from a sea-bed dating back thousands of years. Bathing with Natural Calm Sports Bath is a unique and stress-relieving experience. Toxins are released from the body into the bath water through osmosis, while magnesium and trace minerals from the sea salt are absorbed through the skin. There are no chemicals, additives or impurities in Natural Calm Sports Bath. Innate Cardio Response - 60 caps I really like the Innate Response supplement line, because they are truly RAW and consist of only Whole Foods. Cardio Response is a multi-dimensional formula crafted with the understanding that the synergy created by unifying several whole plant and food ingredients can have a profound restorative effect on the body. The inclusion of wild blueberry, pomegranate, pine bark and grape seed provide the body with an enhanced spectrum of protective whole food compounds and promote overall health of the cardiovascular system.   Here are all the latest new additions to The Raw Food World Store: [DVD] Vanishing of the Bees, Narrated by Ellen Page The Vanishing of the Bees unfolds as a dramatic tale of science and mystery... Bees are dying in their Billions. The situation is both DIRE and all too REAL.   Imagine half a million adults skipping town and leaving their children behind. Picture an opened suitcase filled with bundles of cash at a bus stop and yet no robber wants to snatch it. The apiary science mystery known as "Colony Collapse Disorder" displays these very symptoms. Not only do the bees abandon their hive, but the queen and the brood as well. Unnatural. Unheard of. Even the predators that usually raid the hive for honey stay far away. At first, this occurrence sounds like an urban legend or an exaggerated tale. Except it's not. The situation is both dire and all too real. Bees are disappearing all over the planet and no one knows why.   From the dawn of human society, the nature and origin of the honeybee has awakened the curiosity and interest of man. For the past five million years, this furry insect has been a creature of special sanctity, representing many things such as the human soul, industry, cooperation and the sacred feminine. Our relationship with bees also denotes the most ancient form of agriculture. Pre-historic petroglyphs depict women on honey hunts and Ancient Egyptian farmers floated beehives on rafts down the Nile to pollinate their crops.   And yet today, we live in a state of disconnect. The average consumer has no idea where things originally come from, not even something as vital as our food. They think edibles come naturally shrink-wrapped on a shelf and that the bees are merely stinging insects that make honey, when in fact these prime pollinators are responsible for one third of the food we eat, including most of the fruits, vegetables, nuts and even alfalfa used to feed livestock. In America, this amounts to about $18 billion in annual sales.   Since this nearly year-long investigation first began, thousands of beekeepers around the globe have come out of the bee yard and admitted to the same problem, with some reporting losses of more than 90 percent of their colonies. And there are no dead bees to be found. It is estimated that CCD has resulted in the death of more than one quarter of the 2.4 million bee colonies in at least 35 states across America.   So why are the bees dying now? This question merits a lengthy and well thought out response which covers massive differences of opinion among scientists, farmers, beekeepers and government agencies. Our film looks at CCD from the viewpoint of the beekeeper as well as from the perspective of hard science, while keeping in mind the mythic spirit of the honeybee. And with this crisis comes an opportunity for growth and change. As the bees die, some people are exacting more sustainable approaches to living. Biodynamic and organic farming are on the rise and a host of alternative beekeeping methods are coming into fruition.   Come this winter the beekeepers will put away their hives and anxiously wait. Will their honeybees once again disappear without a trace? If so, what impact will this have on our lives? The Vanishing Bees unfolds as a dramatic tale of science and mystery, illuminating this extraordinary crisis and its greater meaning about the relationship between humankind and mother Earth.   AAAAAAAAND... Many More New Products COMING SOON!!!  

 

February 'At-Cost' Specials

 

Remember that you NOW have the opportunity to always get 13% Off the 'At-Cost' specials by joining 'The Raw Food World Benefits Program' - just click HERE.   I am REALLY EXCITED to bring you a fresh batch of the MOUTH-WATERING Dates that we get directly from the Ojai Farmers Market. These Dates are still WET and gooey and melt in your mouth! The Barhi Dates are the WETTEST and Gooeyist! The Honey Dates come in second in "wetness" and have an amazing sweet taste! We just HAD to offer the ever-popular GIGANTIC JUMBO Medjool Dates also in this line-up! Lastly, we have the tasty new Empress Dates. These guys aren't as wet, but they are chewy and sweet as can be. Just buy the deeper discounted variety 4-pack to try them all ;-)   Almost EVERYONE in the health movement knows that the BEST of the BEST extra-virgin Olive Oil is from Bariani. It is HIGH-END! Once you taste it, just like my mom, you will surely never go back to any other Olive Oil. Everything about this superb Olive Oil is classy, which can even be sensed from the product picture to the right. In addition to offering the Bariani Olive Oil 'At-Cost', we are also offering the Herbed Peruvian Olives with the pits 'At-Cost'. The HERBED Olives are a personal favorite of many. Olive you! ;-)   Next on the list we have two of our FAVORITE nut/seed butters on our website. The Creamy Almond Butter has just gained more and more popularity! Many people consider it a "gourmet" Almond Butter. ...and if you LOVE the taste of Tahini (I sure do!), then you will LOVE the Living Tree Community Tahini. You can sense the high quality of it through the texture. They use a slicing method to make their nut butters, which really captures the essence of the seeds. You can now get these TOP TWO most popular nut/seed butters on our website 'At-Cost'! :-)   With all of the sugar in the Dates in the 'At-Cost' specials and the Persimmons in the 'new product' section, Angela demanded that I offer some sort of GREEN to counterbalance all this sugar! Therefore, we decided to add the Spirulina tablets 'At-Cost to help balance us all out ;-)   We had a MASS of people this month who wanted to see the Fresh Liquid Royal Jelly on special offer too! Although this product is a bit more difficult to handle and ship, we found a way to make this happen efficiently. Please make sure to *read the description* of the product online before you buy it, so that you know what you are getting into with this frozen item. The description discusses how this is a frozen product and how it ships and who is responsible after purchase. We generally don't get any complaints with this item though - please keep in mind that Royal Jelly is much more durable than some people think. Our supplier of this product told us they left their supply in a refrigerator for over a year and they were still able to raise queen bees on it. ;-)   One of our almond suppliers agreed to offer us an INCREDIBLE deal on their Raw Organic Almond Flour. They gave us such a deep discount, that we'll also be giving well over 30% off the retail price on this item. Last time we offered this 'At-Cost', it sold EXTREMELY well! LAST BUT NOT LEAST, the Everything Raw Bars were SO POPULAR last month, that we asked our supplier if we could offer these on special again in February. They agreed! We hope you enjoy! :-)   The following specials are available until February 28th February 'At-Cost' Specials
