Sandman - I have no doubt that you made the right choice

This summer I spent two weeks at the Ann Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico.

You can get everything you need from a plant-based diet.

Not only is Dr. Ann's program vegan, it is also raw. It incorporates a lot of sprouts, wheatgrass and fermented foods.

I felt great for those two weeks. People there saw radical changes. Arthritis was cured. Blood pressure dropped. There were plenty of stories of cancers cured. Dr. Ann cured her own cancer through diet and lifestyle.

Raw means that the enzymes in the food are still alive. Over 105 degrees F, and they die, and your body has a harder time digesting and assimilating the food. The idea is to reduce the amount of energy spent on digestion so it has that energy to use for other things. That primary other thing being the Immune System.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
