Firstly, this expectation is not at all unreasonable, a raw food
diet can help and sometimes cure many different ailments and
illnesses, I can promise you that. However it is important in
starting a life of raw foods to look at your teeth, do you have any
silver fillings in your mouth from cavaties? Silver fillings contain
a large percentage of mercury, everytime you chew your food you
release mercuric gases into your body, which in turn can accumulate
after time and cause all kinds of havoc, including, but not limited
to MS. Here is a great article to read:
(the rest of the site is awesome too, do some searching through the
I had an aunt who was in a wheelchair from the effects of MS, had
her silver amalgums removed and replaced with ceramic and she is
able to walk by herself and live a mostly normal existance. My
uncle did the same thing, also had MS and wasn't able to concieve a
child with his wife, walked with a cane, decided to try what my aunt
tried and now they have a 3 year old daughter and he can play with
her and pick her up like any father would want to. That's not to
say that they are both 100% cured, but they have hugely improved
their lives. I think if they went on a raw food diet and then did a
cleansing fast they would completely be relieved of any symptoms

onto your food for seasoning, however, it is not 100% raw like most
beleive it to be. However, it does make your salads taste
wonderful, I use it for a dressing from time to time, you can find
it at any health food store. It may be harder to find in France
though. I used to live in Paris for 5 years and Cannes for 2 and
know how hard it is to find health food shops, look on-line perhaps.
> Am I in the wrong place for help?I don't think so, there are all kinds of sites available though for
you to get good info and find community, you are not alone.
Good book to sart with: The Sunfood Diet success System by David
Wolfe available at www.davidwolfe.com This book is very inspiring
if not sometimes a little cheezy but still has way of keeping you
going when you want to fall off raw.
www.living-foods.com is a good community site with loads of info.
good luck or rather bon chance....

I guess the root of my personal avoidance of wheat and dairy is the
simple fact that I enjoy being slim. Living in France, it is
difficult to avoid the wonderful patisseries, French breads and
cheeses. A raw diet would preclude all those things anyway? URSULA

We have a member of this forum who beat M.S. with living foods check
out her message #1518.
Peter: we have a saying in Hawaii about lying; "Don't lie, you won't

Those of you who get the digest version; We need the replied to

to Yahoo. All they need to do is put the number of the message the
new message refers to. this is the way it was done before but for
some reason they changed it.
