(NaturalNews) This interview is an excerpt from Kevin Gianni's Rawkathon, which can be found at http://www.Rawkathon.com. In this excerpt, Mike Adams shares on raw food mentors and miracles.

Rawkathon with Mike Adams. Mike Adams is known as the "Health Ranger." Mike cured himself of disease through nutrition and he is the founder and editor of NaturalNews.com.

Kevin:: So, when you were getting into raw foods, who were some of your mentors? Who did you follow? What did you learn from them?

Mike: Oh! Wow! Well, Gabriel Cousens is who I learned from.

Kevin:: Yeah.

Mike: I went to the Tree. They invited me there as a health journalist. So, I was actually there for three or four days as a guest and new to it all. I began to eat their foods and interview people and be part of that culture. It was instantly enlightening; a fuse turned on. I thought raw foods, before that I thought it was superfood blended in my Vitamix, which I had been doing for many years, and salads. I didn't know it could be all this great cuisine.

Kevin:: Yeah.

Mike: Like the best food in the world is actually raw food. I had no idea that was the case. So, that turned me onto that and since then I never looked back. Now I'm pursuing raw food restaurants everywhere I go. Wherever I go I'm looking for restaurants and I'll bring my video camera and try to do an interview with them.

Kevin:: Yeah.

Mike: If they're up for that too. Raw foods. It's the answer. It's the answer to personal health and, in fact, global health.

Kevin:: So, you're that convinced?

Mike: Oh, absolutely. Yeah. There's no question man. I mean, you see people who get onto raw foods and they turn around. If they used to have cancer, the cancer is gone. If they had diabetes, the diabetes is gone. I talked to a woman who was on a liver transplant list. She was one of our readers. She went on raw foods and she was doing some of the super foods that I recommended. She got off the transplant list and then went on to run a marathon.

Kevin:: Are you serious?

Mike: Conventional medicine was ready to cut her open and take out her liver and install a new liver and keep her on all these drugs for her whole life and charge her $800,000 for this procedure. She did it for a few thousand dollars worth of organic food. And bypassed all that pain and misery in debt.

Kevin:: That's incredible. What do you think about 100% raw as opposed to 80% as opposed to 50%; what's the deal?

Mike: I think people get a little crazy with these numbers; it's not a competition folks. I'm like 70% raw, sometimes it'll be 60, sometimes it'll be 80. Here at the event it's probably like 90, maybe 95, who knows. Doesn't matter. What matters is that you get some raw with every meal, that's what matters. In fact, I eat a lot of quinoa. I boil some quinoa, put in some onions, make a nice warm soup, put some ginger in there. That is very, very good for you. And I also think that the principles of eastern medicine, Chinese medicine in particular, have a lot of merit in this area. If you live in a cold climate and maybe you need some warmth in your body, you might need some warm soup. Even if it's just light soup, quinoa, onions and sea salt. That's all you need, warm soup; get it in your body. It warms you and then you can follow that with some raw foods. And you're going to
be healthier. If you're walking around and you have cold feet, cold hands, cold butt, and you're just cold all the time, you shouldn't be chugging raw foods all day long. You need some warmth, get some warm ginger soup in you.

Kevin:: It's great to hear that because there is the Chinese medicine and the ayurvedic principles that have been around a lot longer than say the western-type diet principles and they do mention either cooked food, or half and half or the yin and yang kind of thing.

Mike: Yes, absolutely. I'm a big believer in using some cook vegetables, like stir-fried beans, just lightly stir-fried. Or steamed broccoli, steamed tomatoes. And nutritionally a lot of nutrients are unlocked by that steaming process. But I would never cook fruit or nuts or seeds. Those things always need to be eaten raw in my opinion. We also need raw vegetables in parallel with the cooked vegetables. And just remember that anything that you eat cooked doesn't have the phytonutrients in tact. So you're losing the natural medicine when it's cooked. And you're losing some of the proteins when it's cooked. So you need to be cognizant of your total diet and put together a recipe that works for you, based on you body type, your climate even. If you're living up in Minnesota you need some warm food, I believe. You can't do it 100% raw there. I live in the desert in Tucson, in South America sometimes, and I'm in a warm climate and I don't even do a 100% raw. I still eat warm foods from time to time.
