More than that, being raw prevents the live force in the food from being destroyed by heat. Doing this alone has brought on some very interesting testimonials around the world. Now, when eliminating harmful foods from the diet at the same time as incorporating more healthful plant based foods, the body has more of an opportunity to heal at the cellular level.Conrardy, a.k.a. Dave "the raw food trucker" once suffered from diabetes, colon cancer, and weighed a whopping 430 pounds. He learned about sprouting and juicing and took the challenge. He says that from the time he read the book There Is a Cure for Diabetesby Gabriel Cousens he "was off of all [his] diabetic meds in four days."
After about a year and a half Conrardy had dropped 230 pounds from his unhealthy weight. The diabetes had lifted as well. In just six months he was off of 24 out of 25 of his prescription medications.At one point before his diet change his kidneys were leaking proteins into his blood system. He was told that the issue was non-reversible and that he would end up on a kidney dialysis machine. In just shy of a year with raw food, Conrardy's kidneys were no longer leaking proteins.
He says that colon cancer (stage 1) was gone just after six months on his organic plant based diet. No chemotherapy or radiation was used.
Mr. Conrardy feels that he is alive today because of his turn towards a more wholesome diet. He is involved in spreading the word even further now so as to help others.
