"Toxins In Toxins Out (Part II)", 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 seems that a VAST number of people got inspired by my article from two weeks ago entitled, "Toxins In, Toxins Out". In that article I discussed that detoxification is a natural, ongoing body process that is continually in motion, no matter what type of diet you eat. I believe that one of the reasons people were motivated by this article is because they realized that they will be going through detoxification whatever they eat, whether it's a 100% Raw Food Diet or a Standard American Diet; so they thought that they may as well choose a healthier route.
I have heard of many people attempting to go raw now, after reading that article. This article today is a kind of sequel to "Toxins In, Toxins Out", so if you haven't read that first article yet, it might be a good idea to do so, HERE. The purpose of this article today is to shed light on the difference between detoxification when you are in the overall process of becoming cleaner compared to when you are on a gradual trajectory to becoming more toxic, while at the same time hopefully giving you some extra inspiration and motivation to plow on forward.
In the previous artilce, we stated that a person is either becoming cleaner or more toxic every single day, based on whether they are eating less or more than their average consistent diet. When a person is eating more than their average consistent diet, they are gradually becoming more toxic and the detoxification that they experience usually doesn't have the opportunity to go much deeper than what they consumed the day before. However, if you start to eat less than your consistent diet, you can easily detox what you ingested the day before, PLUS you can start to move onto older waste matter that has built up in your cells, bloodstream and body in general.
This older waste matter is usually MUCH more concentrated and uncomfortable to release than the simple elimination of residues from your daily diet. For most of us, we have been building up this kind of toxic old material within our bodies for quite some time. Instead of this old waste matter being COMPLETELY visible in your appearance, one way your body stores away this toxic waste matter is in a gaseous form within your cells. This built-up storage of toxins within the cells enables the body to adapt to certain conditions more easily, such as toxic diets, poor air conditions and other toxic situations. If you consistently fill up your body with toxins, instead of these toxins always showing up in your outward appearance, these toxins can instead become more and more concentrated within your cells and body. Now, if you "open the floodgates" by improving your diet, a miraculous outpouring of concentrated DENSE toxins is released. The only way to stop this outpouring is to take a step backwards and eat along the lines of your previous diet, so that you continue to get your "fix", just like the heroin addict desperately looking for a hit.
This outpouring of CONCENTRATED toxins when a person improves their diet is the reason why people get sick when they eat a 100% Raw Food Diet. It is also one of the reasons why many raw foodists report to have outrageous gas elimination that sometimes burns and smells like death. The outpour of these CONCENTRATED toxins is, I feel, the number one reason why people have a challenging time going 100% Raw. For me, the practice of periodic colon hydrotherapy has been the primary reason I have been able to succeed on a 100% Raw Food Diet for almost 14 years now, as hydrotherapy pulls these CONCENTRATED toxins right out. We go raw and we are scrambling around and shaking for our fix of the toxins from our previous addictive diet. Although not as extreme, on a physiological level, we are going through withdrawals just like a heroin addict goes through withdrawals when eliminating heroin.
Here is an excerpt from my FAVORITE raw food book on the planet, 'Man's Higher Consciousness'; a staff nurse in a certain hospital accepting drug addicts tells of her experience in caring for such patients. She says:
"If I had ever been tempted to take drugs, I had discarded the idea quickly after working in a hospital ward for drug addicts for the past two years. There can be no torment of the damned that exceeds the agonizing pains that a drug addict goes through to conquer the habit.All our patients entered the hospital ward voluntarily, but as they were not released until completely off the drug, it was a pitiful sight to watch them. The first day they were bolstered up by friends' and relatives' good wishes, and had mustered up every bit of will-power that the drugs had left them. By the second or third day all will-power had vanished as the dosage of the drug was slowly reduced, and they became abject, tortured, screaming idiots as their nerves begged for the drug."It is the same process with food. Many people seem to have no real concept of how far we've come with our diets in the opposite direction from what man may have originally consumed. If I were to take a shot of heroin right now, it would surely kill me. However, in one generation a human can build up tolerance to be able to handle quite a bit of heroin. It wouldn't be erroneous to say that over MANY generations, man has adapted SO FAR from his original diet that we would be going through detoxification quite intensely by choosing to eat raw. Luigi Cornaro lived on 12oz of food per day in the 15th century and outlived the MASS majority, despite having a 'weak constitution' from birth. After four decades of eating this 12oz diet, a friend convinced him to eat 14oz one day and it almost killed him, just like taking a shot of heroin would surely kill me. There is no doubt in my mind that the original diet that man consumed when he first arrived on this planet was absolutely MINIMAL in terms of solids, if indeed it involved any solids at all. It makes sense to me that a human would not come into existence if everything he needed to survive was not already there in his IMMEDIATE environment (i.e.: pristine air).YES!... no matter who you are, you are detoxing every single day. However, when you improve your diet, the detoxification intensifies and usually becomes much more uncomfortable. One of the first keys to success on your journey to becoming "cleaner" is to understand the reasons that you may be having difficulty with your new lifestyle. In my opinion there is no better way to transform and rid the body of these old, deep-rooted toxins than to eat a "cleaner" diet, while at the same time to cleanse the colon on a periodic basis: this combination helps dramatically to relieve the detox symptoms.
New Products at The Raw Food World
Aloe Cadabra w/Vitamin E & Aloe Vera
I was SO SURPRISED how popular the new product !HOT RAWKS! was last month! Now this new aloe lubricant product is RIGHT IN LINE with !HOT RAWKS! and I think it will be just as popular, due to its effectiveness and health promoting properties, (which have been confirmed by our managers Zack and Alara, who LOVE it)! Aloe Cadabra is the smooth and silky organic surprise that is more fun and safer for you than any harmful chemical brands of lubricant. Pleasurable for you, and delightful when shared with a partner. Lubricates as it eliminates dryness! The juicy aloe sensation is a gynecological health ally and a dream come true. It comes in Lavendar, Natural, and Tahitan Vanilla scents.
Suggested uses: Apply liberally to both you and / or your partner. Our organic, all natural food grade gel soothes your most sensitive tissues with a lubricity that magically enhances all intimate encounters. Won't harm condoms or other synthetic toys. Not a spermicide. Will not prevent STDs. Safe if ingested.
Boku Super Food!
I am also very happy to bring the NEW Boku Super Food product to the Raw Food World!!! Personally I LOVE to switch up between all of the different HIGH-QUALITY green foods, just so I can get a wide array of different nutrients. Boku Superfood is one of those EXTREMELY HIGH-QUALITY green foods, which also tastes good! I was talking to Reno, the owner of Boku, about this super food product and I am truly impressed with the ingredients and how they source them. Every ingredient in Boku Super Food is 100% functional. It contains no fillers. Everything is in there for a very good reason.Ulimana Coconut Nectar Truffles!I'm really excited to announce that Theresa from raw chocolate company Ulimana has created a Truly Raw Chocolate Truffle, which includes one of our FAVORITE sweetners. These "Coconut Nectar Truffles" utilize the Coconut Nectar from the Coconut Secret Company, which we've been RAVING about for the last month or so...Ingredients: Organic Cacao Powder, Organic Cacao Butter, Coconut Secret Coconut Nectar, Organic Coconut, Organic Vanilla Bean, and Celtic Sea Salt.Ulimana is also now using the 100% raw bali cacao in their products!Zak, by Bridget Belgrave
Two years after Angela went raw, she got into Non-Violent Communication... and BOY have I learned so MUCH from her in regards to this topic since then! Back then, Angela bought a book entitled "Zak". It is a Non-Violent Communication book for children. It's about a boy who goes into the wild and connects with nature, animals and his TRUE ESSENCE. Angela left this book with our managers Alara and Zack and they fell in LOVE with this book. They INSISTED that we get this book for the store and so now, it is available. It truly is a charming little story, with the potential to be as successful as some of those we have come to regard as classics...
The Truth About Aspartame AUDIO CD
The artificial sweetener, Aspartame is used in over six thousand food and beverage products worldwide, ranging from diet soft drinks to chewable vitamins. Furthermore, since its inception in the early 1980s, this sweetener has quickly become one of the most controversial food additives to date.
In this CD discussion, neurosurgeon and author, Dr. Russell Blaylock provides a wealth of information concerning the intimate connection between the use of aspartame and a number of common medical disorders that currently plague the health of our society (including multiple sclerosis, brain and other types of tumors, confusion, visual problems and weight gain) and informs us of just how such a dangerous product was ever approved for human use by the FDA. But more importantly, Dr. Blaylock outlines for us practical ways in which we can treat this resulting damage.
Here are all the latest new additions to The Raw Food World Store:
"Ripe from Around Here", by Jae SteeleRipe from Around Here, by Jae Steele
"Get It Ripe", Jae Steele's 2008 book, established her as a credible and charismatic authority on veganism; her holistic nutritionist background and sassy cowpunk sensibility encouraged countless others to "get it ripe." Her new book underscores the importance of local, sustainable eating and living by helping readers deepen their understanding of organic and local foods, and their positive impact on our health and our planet.
The book includes chapters on the concept of local food and why it's important; finding a balance between various food issues and personal priorities and values; and the benefits of the local food movement that go beyond reducing the carbon footprint on our plates. It also helps readers become more informed about where their food comes from no matter where they live, whether their source is the farmers' market or the grocery store down the street.
The 180 recipes, which encourage the use of fresh, organic ingredients wherever possible (as well as potential alternatives, depending on where you live), include Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins, Pear Parsnip Soup, Asparagus and Spring Onion Quiche, Mushroom Asparagus Risotto, and Butternut Chipotle Chocolate Cake.
Both thought-provoking and delectable, Jae's new book makes any time the "ripe" time to go vegan.
AAAAAAAAND... Many More New Products COMING SOON!!!
We've got a MASS of INCREDIBLE 'at-cost' specials this month!!! ...and not only do we have a LARGE amount of 'at-cost' specials, but they are ALL really high quality products. Love it!!! Check them all out below! :-)
I am EXTREMELY excited to be offering our systemic/metabolic enzymes at an outrageously low cost this month!!! This is the ideal opportunity to LOAD-UP on the most POWERFUL enzymes on the market. The reason why I LOVE offering these systemic enzymes 'At-Cost' is that I know how it is going to help so many people who are trying to manage certain health issues that they are experiencing. Not only are we offering a discount on one pack of enzymes, but we are ALSO offering a larger discount if you want to buy a 3-pack!
We are also offering another TREMENDOUSLY beneficial supplement in addition to the enzymes, which is...the chlorella tablets. Not only are these chlorella tablets EXTREMELY nutritious and an INCREDIBLE way to get a lot of chlorophyll into the body... BUT... they also TASTE GREAT! Well... I guess the chlorella tablets are like the durian...some people love them and others...not so much! Angela and I LOVE to chew on these chlorella tablets, just straight from the bag. They are so fun, easy to eat and great for travellng in the raw...we also think that many kids would LOVE them. However, keep in mind that we are extreme 100% Raw Foodists and our taste buds might be quite different to others...!
Angela and I have noticed that people on a 80 - 100% Raw Food Diet, LOVE to chew the chlorella tablets. I'd have to say they are one of the MOST POPULAR products on our website... and... if you don't like the taste, you can just swallow the tablets, or blend them into a recipe ;-)
Now... I'd have to say that Kelp Noodles are literally within the TOP 5 most popular products on our website. If you haven't tried these out yet, then now is the time to order up! If you want to replace standard pasta (read: GLUE!) with something healthy, then these kelp noodles are an IDEAL health food to experiment with. They have the same exact texture as pasta and you can create any healthy sauce that you can muster, to serve with them. The kelp noodles are innovative, unique, exciting, easy to use, quick to prepare, children love them, plus they're tasty, versatile, inexpensive and mineral rich :-)
NOW!!! let's get some more HIGH-QUALITY minerals into our bodies with the beautiful Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt, which we are also offering 'at-cost' this month. This Pink Crystal Himalayan Salt is finely ground, which makes it extremely easy to use in any recipes. This Pink Himalayan Salt is far superior to other kinds of salt... especially standard table salt, which is extremely damaging to the body. Not only are we offering a discount on the standard 16oz bags of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt, but we are also offering one of those SUPER-POPULAR 3-pack deeper discounts that you all seem to LOVE.
We are also offering the POWERFUL MSM-Aloe-Gel and ever-so-POPULAR MSM Lotions 'At-Cost' this month too!!! My wife Angela can't get ENOUGH of the MSM-Aloe-Gel. She says that it is extremely effective on wounds and injuries and that it works like 'deep heat'. You can usually feel the power of this stuff as soon as you put it on. It has the potential to bring instant relief from swelling, pains from insect bites, infections and so on. One of our helpers out here got bitten by a wasp and his hand blew up like a BALOON. As soon as he put the MSM-Aloe-Gel on, it immediately deflated. We also love that the MSM-Aloe-Gel has simple ingredients. I just put some on Angela's back a few nights ago, as she had slightly hurt her lower back doing yoga. She said she felt it working immediately and bringing relief, as it penetrated her skin like 'deep heat'.
As I write these 'at-cost' specials up, I am realizing that we've probably got some of the most popular products available involved in this extreme discount frenzy this month. We are also offering our three most popular MSM Lotions 'at-cost' this month! MSM is known to help heal and tone the skin, so the concept of using MSM in a natural skin care lotion product is clearly genius. These all-natural MSM Lotions have been revered for many years now, since we put them into our webstore about a decade ago. We are now offering a three-pack on these amazing lotions, meaning you can get one of each of the most popular scents, at an even deeper discount :-)
We are also offering the Mauk Family Farms Flax and Seed Crusts (Crackers) 'AT-COST'!!! My Mom ABSOLUTELY LOVES the Mauk Family Farms Crackers. 5 years ago she replaced all of her bread consumption with these thick seed crusts and she is 100% Satisfied! We are offering all three flavors of these ever-so popular Seed Crusts, which includes the Standard Crusts, Mineral Rich Crusts, and the Breakfast Crusts. The Breakfast Crusts are more like a sweet version of the crusts and the Mineral Rich is a bit more salty, as it includes seaweeds. We are also offering a 3-pack below, meaning you can get one of each flavor at an even deeper discounted price :-)

Come Join Us at David Wolfe's Longevity Conference!!!
We are BACK! Angela and I are back in the United States again now...for around two months only. Angela and I have totally fallen in LOVE with our new home in Vilcabamba, Ecuador, and it is challenging for us to be away from our new home. However, behind the scenes I've been planning the MOST EXCEPTIONAL couple of months that I could possibly come up with, for our visit to the United States. AND NOW!... We are getting EXTREMELY EXCITED about being back in the US. After these two months are over, we intend to go back to Vilcabamba, Ecuador, for a MINIMUM of two years. So, this currenr 2-month timeframe is the IDEAL time to come and hang out with us in the USA, if you'd like to see us there before we go back down south. We are looking forward to meeting many of you during our time here in the States!
The MAIN part of this USA trip that we are MOST EXCITED about is that we are attending David Wolfe's Longevity Conference, September 24th - 26th in Costa Mesa, California. We are bringing 'The Raw Food World' Store and TV Show to this event! Angela and I will both be hanging out with everyone there for the ENTIRE weekend (3 FULL DAYS!) :-)... We will personally be manning our booth there, meeting and conversing with everyone at the event. Additionally, every night we'll very likely be going with everyone to our favorite nearby raw food restaurant: Au Lac. We hope that you can make it to this outsanding event and to see you there that weekend :-)
David Wolfe's Longevity Conference is unlike any other Raw Food Event. If I was personally going to choose just one of the raw food festivals or events to go to this year, it would definitely be THIS ONE! What I like MOST about this event is that it is very professional, HIGH-CLASS, and reveals the most CUTTING-EDGE information and products available NOW. This event is so CLASSY, well organized, and takes place in the ELEGANT Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa. It is the'GO TO' raw event of the year and we hope to hang out with you all weekend there!
If you are interested in attending this event, you can purchase your tickets by clicking HERE! FYI, tickets are $247 at the moment and the price is set to increase on August 15th to $297.
Recently we interviewed David Wolfe about this upcoming event in the video below!!! I have been hearing David say for almost a year now that "The most extraordinary food product in the history of the world is about to be unleashed." I ask him about this new superfood product every single time I talk to him. He FINALLY reveals in this video below that this new superfood is the most challenging food product he has ever dealt with in his career and after ten years in the making, it will be announced AND distributed at the Longevity Conference!!!... EXCITING!!! Check it out in the video below!!!...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTy-1riLE9IPart II of this video is at the bottom of this section, down below.
This conference is going to be SO MUCH FUN!!! We are doing a handful of other events during this brief trip to the States, nearly ALL around the west coast. This conference is the only event that lasts an ENTIRE weekend and involves getting to hang out with (hopefully) you and all of our good friends, such as David Wolfe, Kevin and Annmarie Gianni, Daniel Vitalis, Solla, Goji Girl, Frank Giglio and many more. We are also looking forward to meeting many of the other HIGH PROFILE speakers attending, such as Dr. Mercola, Donna Gates, John Robbins, POSSIBLY Woody Harrelson, and MANY MORE!If you can't make this conference, Angela and I will be speaking at these 'one-night-only' 4 - 5 hour events, at the following locations:
Orange County, CA
Seattle, WA (With Dave the Raw Food Truck Driver :-))
Brighton, MI (Raw Health Eco Fest)
You can view these events on our events page, by clicking HERE.We really hope that we can see and meet many of you at the Longevity Conference or at another location along our tour.To join us for the ENTIRE weekend in Costa Mesa, purchase your 'Longevity Conference' tickets by clicking HERE.And...
