Living Raw Foods

You are what you eat

Food sustains us… Yet what we eat may affect our risk for several of the leading causes of death for Americans, notably, coronary heart disease, stroke, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, and some types of cancer. These disorders together now account for more than two-thirds of all deaths in the United States.” -former Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop

Raw Food is Easy

Raw food has benefits for everyone. Eating lots of raw food can make a big difference to your energy, health, weight, mood and quality of life. Raw foods are better quality, therefore you eat less to satisfy your nutritional needs. The heat of cooking depletes vitamins, damages proteins and fats, and destroys enzymes which benefit digestion. As your percentage of raw foods increases you feel satisfied and have more energy on smaller meals because raw food has the best balance of water, nutrients and fibre to meet your body’s needs.

Why Raw Foods

Heike follows Ann Wigmore’s teachings. Dr. Ann Wigmore developed an approach to wellness that incorporates raw living foods that may help the body to health and a productive lifestyle.

Uncooked fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and sprouts are the basis of the programme and are eaten according to a method of blending, fermenting and sprouting. Dr. Wigmore worked with thousands of people for over 30 years helping them to rid the body of toxins and receive nourishment in an easy-to-digest form. Her Hippocrates Centre in Boston taught that the body can act as its own physician when provided with organic living nourishment in the way nature intended. She wrote over 35 books about wheatgrass and living foods.
