I’ve got a confession to make.

Changing careers was one of the most upsetting and difficult chapters of my life thus far.

Having been a successful DJ since the age of 15, and having accumulated so much experience in the music business for over 30 years, changing jobs at midlife wasn’t easy.

Going from DJing to Madonna and Prince to being ignored by almost everyone in the natural heath field as I began my journey into raw foods was difficult. Many people wouldn’t even reply to my emails.

But the question is: why did I do it? Why did I choose raw foods? Why have I chosen to change my life’s path so drastically?

Most people think that eating raw foods is ‘just’ learning a few raw recipes here and there, right?

Far from it. However wonderful eating raw foods may be, diet is only a tiny fraction of what drew me into this lifestyle.

There are many aspects to discuss about natural health but I will focus on these three:

– The system is rigged

When I was growing up, I remember wondering why do we drink milk from cows; after all, no other animal drinks the milk from another species, so why do we?

I trusted human wisdom in many of the choices I made as a young adult, thinking it was the right thing to do, only to discover later in life that the world is upside down.

People drink cow’s milk and consume other processed foods because it makes money for the system. It’s a con. It has nothing to do with science or common sense.

What about following the “qualified” advice of dieticians, you may ask? Most of them also recommend drinking milk and eating meat, right?

The truth is the global food industry is a multi-trillion dollar business; so powerful that their lobbies and interests affect the food and health policies of every government in the world.

They also conduct and fund most of the research done on food, and are responsible for creating all the conventional nutritional courses.

In other words, your average dietician and nutritionist attended courses that were designed and approved by the mainstream food industry at large, so they have been brainwashed into believing what the rulers of our world want us to believe.

And if, by chance, you think I am talking about conspiracy theories? Then you are naive.

While you fight for change, you must realize that everything starts with education.

By informing yourself and gathering the actual facts behind nutrition, you can prioritize your health, stick two fingers up at the establishment and transform your life and the life of your love ones for the better, just like I did.

– Medicine isn’t health

The biggest mistake most people make is associating medicine with health. If anything, medicine destroys health.

Even the doctors admit this.

By adopting natural health practices and a raw diet, you will overcome most obstacles in preventing and curing a plethora of diseases, without the need to take those deadly drugs.

And in case if you want scientific evidence and proof of my claims, you can refer to the hundreds upon hundreds of books and studies that have been published on natural health over the past 200 years alone.

It’s all there for everyone to see, but you need to put an effort to find and study them, the same way I did.

– Being sick isn’t normal

We live in a society that considers the existence of diseases to be normal, when in reality that is not what biology says.

A perfect level of health constitutes what is normal, whilst “dis-ease” is an abnormal condition of the body.

What make us sick in the first place are the practices of eating the wrong food and living the wrong lifestyle. Hereditary conditions make up only a small percentage of our illnesses.

And to those uninformed people out there who wish to undermine my views and call my teachings and those of natural heath ‘pseudoscience’ and whatever else, you should ignore them.

Part of the problem is that many ill-informed people in our society are quite happy to follow the medical model of heath, thinking they can eat any food they like and then take a magic pill that will solve their problems, and as we know too well…. that pill doesn’t exist.

I must clarify that I am not strictly anti-medicine nor do I advise not seeing your doctor.

In fact, I always encourage seeing doctors, do blood tests and other examinations, and listen to someone’s else opinions, but final decisions on one’s health should be based mainly upon considerations of one’s own research and studies.
